They said regard the publics response to its grief as a remarkable demonstration of the political maturity and fun damental good sense of the American people The US public could have responded in a number of undesirable ways the re searchers suggested Political opponents could have shown satisfaction A violencesated public could have shrugged off the tragedy Or would we have been surprised when

gratifying to be able to report that none of these reactions was characteristic of more than a very tiny fraction of the American public Most persons said they dropped whatever they were do ing to listen to radiotelevision reports discuss the assassina tion or quietly grieve Less than one in five could carry on nor mal activities In the four days between as sisstnatio and funeral nearly half of
