BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SAUL PETT SID MOODY HUGH MULLIGAN AND TOM HENSHAW A FOREWORD. . . . . . One yearns even now, with an almost irresistable force, to be able to file the disclaimer frequently seen at this stage of a book: "All of the characters herein portrayed are fictitious and any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental. " But the fact won't be wished away and the long night remains, not a bad dream, but a reality to haunt us all the days of our lives. There is implicit in all human tragedy a waste, a pointlessness. Tragedy unobserved is even more pointless. But tragedy unremembered surely must rank with profound sin. Thus, this chronicle of four days in November, 1963, is written, not to revive shock and tears, but to remember. Thus, we write in the hope that those who come after us will find an insight and a wisdom and a workable moral out of these events which so far elude us who lived with them. To those in the future who may learn from the past, this book is hopefully dedicated.
