    Background: THE BODIES OF TWO BABIES BORN TO PRESIDENT KENNEDY AND HIS WIFE WERE TRANSFERRED ON THURSDAY TO ARLINGTON CEMETERY WHERE THE PRESIDENT IS BURIED.

    ONE OF THE CHILDREN, A GIRL WHO DIED AT BIRTH IN 1956, WAS FORMERLY BURIED IN NEWPORT, RHODE ISLAND. A BOY, PATRICK BOUVIER, WHO DIED TWO DAYS AFTER BIRTH IN AUGUST, WAS BURIED AT BROOKLINE IN MASSACHUSETTS.

    THE BODIES WERE BROUGHT TO WASHINGTON ON THE FAMILY PLANE, AND WERE ACCOMPANIED BY THE PRESIDENT'S BROTHER, SENATOR EDWARD KENNEDY. BRIEF GRAVESIDE RITES WERE CONDUCTED IN THE EVENING, AFTER THE CEMETERY HAD CLOSED FOR THE NIGHT. BISHOP PHILIP HANNAN, AUXILIARY BISHOP FOR THE ROMAN CATHOLIC ARCHDIOCESE OF WASHINGTON, PRESIDED AT THE BURIAL.

    INFORMATION ABOUT THE BURIAL WAS GIVEN IN A STATEMENT BY MR. PIERRE SALINGER, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY, ON BEHALF OF THE KENNEDY FAMILY.

    MR. SALINGER SAID THOSE ATTENDING WERE MRS KENNEDY, SENATOR KENNEDY, THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL ROBERT KENNEDY, SENATOR KENNEDY, THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL ROBERT KENNEDY, AND MRS KENNEDY'S SISTER, PRINCESS LEE RADZIWILL. THE CHILDREN'S GRAVES ARE ON EITHER SIDE OF THE GRAVE WHERE THEIR FATHER LIES BURIED.
