LOUIS (AP)-More than 30,000 persons marched Sunday in crisp 45 degree weather to pay homage to assassinated President John F. Kennedy and rededicate themselves to racial equality. The interfaith procession of Roman Catholics, Jews and Protestants began a silent somber walk at the soldier's memorial. They wound their way through St. Louis streets to the white antebellum columns of the old court house, where the Dred Scott case was heard in the 1840s and 1850s. Highly Impressed "Oh Lord, hear our prayer," thousands of voices intoned as the Rev. Dr. Ralph C. Abele prayed for the nation and President Kennedy. Rev. William J. Kenealy, S.J., law professor at Boston University in Newton, Mass., said after the meeting: "I was very highly impressed by the deep prayertulness and ,, his wife, Ethel the walk around his hospital room-jspirituality. praycrfulness J 1 w, . , ,, . , ' . ... .

Gen. Robert F. Kennedy-as long lines of people waited to pass the President's bier. She walked slowly by the ropes keeping the public from the casket area and once again knelt and kissed the coffin. Until she had left it at the Capitol, Mrs. Kennedy had remained near her husband's body since he was slain in Dallas Friday afternoon. On her sudden nighttime re appearance, the slow - moving crowd came to a halt. When Mrs. Kennedy rose, she turned her tear-stained face and looked for a long moment at the faces of those who came to pay their respects to her late husband. Searches Faces As she and the attorney general left, Mrs. Kennedy seemed to look searchingly at the faces of the Incoming throng. "Let me walk, let me walk," she said as they descended the Capitol steps. At first Mrs. Kennedy went unrecognized, but soon she was discovered and s, lollowed after her party of p olice and Secret Service agents. It was learned Mrs. Kennedy personally had decided on many of the details of the presidential funeral, including the decision that the mourners would walk some eight blocks from the White House as was done at the funeral of Abraham Lincoln, the president slain almost 100 years ago. Agrees On Procession Protocol and research experts had brought to the White House plans of the funerals of George Washington, Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, Woodrow Wilson and Franklin D.

The procession originally was planned by the St. Louis Conference on Religion and Race, an organization of clergymen from the three major faiths in the United States, to point out racial injustice in St. Louis. FLAG USAGE OUTLINED NEW YORK (UPI) - The U.S. Flag Foundation announced Saturday that during the 30-day period of mourning being observed in most states the U.S. flag must remain at half staff rain or shine until sunset and can even be displayed after dark if proper illumination is provided. Lawrence Phelps Tower, president of the Foundation, said flags on staffs that cannot be lowered halfway should have a black streamer from the spearhead halfway down the flag. Other flags hanging horizontally or perpendicularly should have a black bunting border of appropriate depth around the flag.
