    MAYOR JOHN ERIK JONSSON OF DALLAS, TEXAS, SAID IN LONDON TODAY (TUESDAY) THAT THE MAIN REASON FOR HIS PRESENT EUROPEAN TOUR WAS TO CORRECT WHAT HE CONSIDERED TO BE "THE RANK INJUSTICE" DONE TO HIS CITY FOLLOWING PRESIDENT KENNEDY'S ASSASSINATION THERE LAST NOVEMBER.

    AT A PRESS CONFERENCE, MAYOR JONSSON DECLARED THAT THE LOSS OF THE PRESIDENT HAD PUT A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF PRESSURE ON DALLAS, AND CLAIMED THAT AS A RESULT OF REPORTING THE CITY'S IMAGE HAD SUFFERED.

    IN DEFENCE OF HIS COMMUNITY THE MAYOR SAID THAT DALLAS IS PLACE WHERE PEOPLE LIVE TOGETHER IN HARMONY AND PEACE. HE ADDED THAT THE CITY WAS PROUD OF ITS EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM, ITS CHURCHES AND THE SELF-RELIANCE OF ITS PEOPLE.

    MAYOR JONSSON SAID THAT AGAINST SUCH A BACKGROUND IT WAS DISTURBING TO HAVE DALLAS PICTURED AS A PLACE WHERE EVERYONE CARRIED A REVOLVER.
