Newsreel regarding the assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy. Orig UI Text: President John Fitzgerald Kennedy is dead at the hand of a madman. Lyndon B. Johnson becomes the 36th President of the United States. In the midst of cheering crowds as he rode through downtown Dallas, Mr. Kennedy fell before assassin's bullets fired from a warehouse along the route of the motorcade. A nation is bowed in grief. The world mourns. A feeling of shocked disbelief swept over the nation as the news came that the 46 year old Mr. Kennedy had been murdered. Men & women wept unashamedly in the streets. Then came grief & revulsion. Bells tolled & flags were lowered to half-mast in sorrowful tribute to the 4th U.S. President to lose his life to an assassin. Message of sympathy poured in from world leaders. The youngest man ever elected U.S. President, Mr. Kennedy was a best-selling author at 23, a war hero at 26. A U.S. Representative at 29, a Senator at 35. Scion of one of the nation's wealthiest families he avoided the life of ease to dedicate himself to public service. He executed many difficult problems of his office with a skill that brought sunshine to the Presidency. Now he is dead."
