earlier reports provided by phy sicians who treated the Presi dent shortly after he was shot Nov 22 Doctors who attended Ken nedy in the emergency room at Parkland Hospital in Dallas found two wounds one in the throat and one hi the head They expressed some uncer tainty whether both were caused by the same bullet But they said that if two bullets were involved either wound could have been fatV Here is the new account of the wounds as reported by a source fully acquainted with results of a postmortem ex amination conducted at the Bethesda Md Naval Hospital The first shot struck Kennedy in the back made what was described as a small neat hole and penetrated two or three inches without damaging vital organs The bullet may even have en tered Kennedys back after first glancing off some part of the presidential limousine since its penetration was not deep when compared with the damage done by the other shots fired by the assassin This first bul let was said to have been the one that was recovered from the stretcher on which Kennedy was carried into the hospital The second bullet to strike Kennedy the third bullet fired left a large hole in the back of the Presidents head
