(Testimony of Mrs. Lee Harvey Oswald Resumed)

Mrs. Oswald.
No. He tried to get any kind of work. He answered ads, newspaper ads.
Mr. Rankin.
Did he have trouble finding work again?
Mrs. Oswald.
Yes.
Mr. Rankin.
How long after his return was it before he found a job?
Mrs. Oswald.
Two to three weeks.
Mr. Rankin.
When he was unemployed in New Orleans, did he get unemployment compensation?
Mrs. Oswald.
Yes.
Mr. Rankin.
Do you know how much he was getting then?
Mrs. Oswald.
$33 a week. It is possible to live on that money. One can fail to find work and live. Perhaps you don't believe me. It is not bad to rest and receive money.
Mr. Rankin.
When he was unemployed in Dallas, do you know whether he received unemployment compensation?
Mrs. Oswald.
We were due to receive unemployment compensation, but it was getting close to the end of his entitlement period, and we received one more check.
Mr. Rankin.
Did you. discuss with him possible places of employment after his return from Mexico?
Mrs. Oswald.
No. That was his business. I couldn't help him in that. But to some extent I did help him find a job, because I was visiting Mrs. Paine's neighbors. There was a woman there who told me where he might find some work.
Mr. Rankin.
And when was this?
Mrs. Oswald.
I don't remember. If that is important, I can try and ascertain date. But I think you probably know.
Mr. Rankin.
Was it shortly before he obtained work?
Mrs. Oswald.
As soon as we got the information, the next day he went there and he did get the job.
Mr. Rankin.
And who was it that you got the information from?
Mrs. Oswald.
It was the neighbor whose brother was employed by the school book depository. He said it seemed to him there was a vacancy there.
Mr. Rankin.
What was his name?
Mrs. Oswald.
I don't know.
The Chairman.
Well, I think we have arrived at our adjournment time. We will recess now until tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock.
(Whereupon, at 4:30 p.m., the President's Commission recessed.)
The Chairman.
Tuesday, February 4, 1964
