NITA'S i:, COFFEE SHGP ii 50EIAL EVENTS Former Resident Writes Of Reaction To Kennedy Death In Sedan, Africa The following zs an excerpt from a letter written to her par- ents by Doris Hunter Wilson, Obel, Sudan. Ahica. The letter zs dated Nov. 23. Dear folks : "We were listening o the radio last night at. 9 p.m. when the broadcast was interrupted telling that John Kennedy had been shot. At first we couldn't believe our ears. then turned to Voice oI America and got further news at first bdefinjte, then telling for certain that he had died. Half an our aftehe was shot we heard he news here at Obel The vconders of radio are harl to believe. Today everyone felt bad, all the Clinic workers and here at Obel the teachers stopped by in twos and threes to tell us how sorry they were. I think not only that he was President but that people liked him personally - for his work toward world peace, like the recent test ban treaty, and also for his work for equal rights for Negros. Sometimes a great tragedy awakes others to fight in the place o fthe one who has died. I'm sure his similarities to Lincoln are also felt by the zest of the world which probably thinks more of Lincoln than any other U. S. citizen."
