Tribute
WASHINGTON-The following
is an excerpt from United States
Supreme Court Justice Earl War-
ren's tribute to the late President
John F. Kennedy:
'John Fitzgerald Kennedy, a
great and good President - the
friend of all men of good will -
a believer in the dignity and
equality of all human beings; a
fighter for justice; and apostle of
peace, has been snatched from our
midst by the bullet of an assassin.
"What moved some misguided
wretch to do this horrible deed
may never be known to us, but we
do know that such acts are com-
monly stimulated by forces of
hatred and malevolence, such as
today, which are eating their way
into the bloodstream of American
life.
"But surely we can learn if we
have the will to do so. Surely
there is a lesson to be learned
from this tragic event.
"If we really love this country;
if we truly love justice and mercy;
if we fervently want to make this
nation better for those who are to
follow us, we can at least abjure
the hatred that consumes people,
the false accusations that divide
us and the bitterness that begets
violence."

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Americans
trudged up the slopes of Arlington
National Cemetery by the thou-
sands yesterday in a silentpil-
grimage to the grave of the late
President John F. Kennedy.
The late President was laid to
rest Monday afternoon in solemn
military and Roman Catholic
ceremonies. The graveside services
were conducted by Richard Car-
dinal Cushing, a long-time friend
of the fallen President. He had
also said the funeral mass at St.
Matthew's Cathedral which pre-
ceded the burial.
Following the ceremony, the
Kennedy family drove away from
the cathedral in six limousines to
lead the mourners to Arlington.
The funeral cortege was led by a
police escort, while the Marine
Corps Marching Band followed,
playing slow marches.
Services Represented
There followed companies of
cadets and midshipmen from the
four major military academies
and u n i t s representing each
branch of the services.
The cortege unit followed the
military groups. First came a spe-
cial honor guard, a single sailor
carrying the national flag, and
representatives of the three major
faiths. At last came the casket
carrying the body of the late Pres-
ident, flag-draped and carried on
a black caisson drawn by six gray
horses.
Behind the caisson walked a
sailor carrying the President's own
flag - the seal of the President
of the United States on a blue
field. Next in line and immediate-
ly before the long line of limou-
sines was a horse carrying an
empty saddle and black riding
boots reversed in the stirrups,
symbolic of a fallen leader.
Solemn Scene
As the cortege entered Arling-
ton's Memorial Gate, the drums
were silenced and a hush fell upon
the solemn scene. The caisson
drew to a stop to the right of the
grave and about 75 yards down-
hill from it. Mrs. Kennedy, Presi-
dent Lyndon B. Johnson, and the
throng of official m o u r n e r s
stepped from the cars. The casket
was slowly borne toward the
grave, preceded by the national
colors, Cardinal Cushing, two oth-
er Catholic clergymen and two
military chaplains.
Cardinal Cushing began recit-
ing the burial prayers while many
of the dignitaries were still walk-
ing toward the grave from their
cars. Following the prayer, an
Army battery at nearby Fort Myer
fired a 21-gun salute. As Mrs.
Kennedy and the President's two
brothers approached the casket,
riflemen fired three volleys and a
bugler sounded "Taps."
Mrs. Kennedy walked with a
firm step but with her veiled head
bowed in grief as the mourners
slowly turned away from the
grave.
Police Offer
More Proof
By The Associated Press
DALLAS-Local police, the FBI
and the Secret Service have of-
fered evidence which appears to
establish Lee Harvey Oswald as
President John F. Kennedy's as-
sassin.
Finger and palm prints proved
that Oswald was near the window
where the assassin's bullets were
fired; ballistic tests showed that
Oswald's rifle had fired the bul-
lets, and a letter in the alleged as-
sassin's handwriting ordering the
weapon from a Chicago mail-order
store has established his posses-
sion of the gun.
His wife asserted that he had
had a rifle in the garage on the
night before the assassination.
Authorities said that her testi-

mony, however, would not have
been admissible in Texas courts.
Paraffin tests for gunpowder on
both hands were "positive," indi-
cating he recently had shot a rifle.
Oswald was employed in the
building where the death weapon
was found and was seen there im-
mediately following the assassina-
tion.
FBI identification experts de-
veloped a latent fingerprint and a
palm print from a brown paper
bag found near the window of the
school book warehouse. The bag
had apparently contained the
lunch Oswald had eaten in the
building. The fingerprint matched
Oswald's left index finger. The
palm print was identical with his
own right palm print..
One of Oswald's fellow workers
at the warehouse said that the
alleged killer carried a long pack-
age with him to work on Friday
morning. Police said that he told
the worker the package contained
window shades.
Oswald once threatened Texas
Gov. Connally, former Secretary
of the Navy, that he would "em-
ploy any means" to get even for
a wrong he believed committed
against him as a marine.

ASSASSINATION LAW:
I Kadish, Israel Deliver Views

By NELSON LANDE
"I can foresee no serious legal
problems if the federal govern-
ment assumes the states' exclu-
sive right to prosecute presiden-
tial assassins," Prof. Sanford H.
Kadish of the Law School said last
night.
The federal trial of assassins
of certain government employes,
such as FBI officials and United
States attorneys, is currently sub-
ject to the limitation that the
victim be slain "in performance of
official duties." Otherwise, the
states reserve the power of prose-
cution.
In the event of the proposed
legislation coming into effect, a
President would thus have to be
assassinated while carrying out
official duties. According to Prof.

Kadish, however, this would pose
no problem; as "the President is
always engaged in performance of
duties, if for no other reason than
that he is the executive power."
Commenting on what would
happen if the crime occurred in
a state such as Michigan, where
capital punishment doesn't pre-
vail, Prof. Kadish, admitted that
such circumstances would prob-
ably serve as a catalyst to effect
the proposed legislation.
Prof. Jerold H. Israel of the
Law School brought up an inter-
esting point. Since it is both a
state offense and a federal offense
to steal money from federally in-
sured banks, there is no really
logical reason why federal assas-
sinations couldn't come under fed-
eral jurisdiction.

Prof. Israel concluded by say-
ing that in any event, the matter
is "no serious constitutional prob-
lem. Congress has the power to
alter the legislation if it so
desires."
