JFK Slain-- t (Continued From Page 1) bubbletop car. The top was down. The Secret Service men, who are constantly at the President's side, unloosened automatic weapons and drew pistols but it was too late. The incident occurred just east of an underpass facing a public park in downtown Dallas. Moments after the shooting, Mr. Kennedy lay slumped over in the back seat of the car, face down. Connally lay on the floor of the rear seat. First Lady Screams Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy was heard to scream as she reached for her husband. Both men were taken to the Parland Hospital. Eear Adm. George Burley, the White House physician, went to the emergency room where the President and Connally had been taken. The President was in Texas on a two-day visit. One of its purposes was to buck up Democratic presidential' strength. The President had landed only a short time before at Dallas' Love Field and was driving to the Trade Mart to deliver a luncheon speech. Crowds Along Route The streets were lined by crowds, the biggest turnout of the Texas tour. The motorcade was so strung out as the result of the speedy movement of the cavalcade that members of the Kennedy staff were 15 minutes to a half hour behind in reaching the Parkland Hospital. Blood was spattered over the limousine, which had been flown in specially to carry the President. The driver was Secret Service man Bill Greet. Both the body and glass bubble of the car are proof against most gunfire, but the top was down so the President could wave to the crowds.
