Hearings Before the President's Commission,
on the
Assassination of President Kennedy

Thursday, February 27, 1964--Afternoon Session

Testimony of James Herbert Martin Resumed

The President's Commission reconvened at 3 p.m.
Mr. Dulles.
Gentlemen, the Commission will come to order. Are you ready to continue the testimony, Mr. Martin?
Mr. Martin.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Dulles.
Will you carry forward, Mr. Redlich?
Mr. Redlich.
Mr. Martin, I would like to hand you a group of newspaper clippings which have not as yet been introduced in evidence and I would ask you to look through them and to pick out any which you feel create an image of Mrs. Marina Oswald which you feel does not conform to the reality of her personality, as you know it, and ask you in regard to each one to tell us in what respect the facts as reported in each of these clippings do not conform to the real person as you know her.
Mr. Dulles.
I assume we can avoid repetition, can't we?
Mr. Redlich.
Mr. Dulles.
Incidents here have been touched on in other papers and we don't need to touch them again.
Mr. Redlich.
Yes, Mr. Chairman.
During the intermission we have gone through all of the newspaper clippings and eliminated the duplicate stories and hope to eliminate duplicate facts as we go along.

Do you want me to?
Mr. Redlich.
If you are going to make comment about it, if you feel there is some inaccuracy here then I would like to introduce that in evidence, since apparently you are.
Mr. Martin.
It is inaccurate as far as the date in the article is concerned.
Mr. Redlich.
The witness has handed to us a newspaper story which we have marked as Commission Exhibit No. 328.
Mr. Dulles.
Could we have the inaccuracy mentioned here?
Mr. Redlich.
Yes, the headline of which is "Mrs. Oswald Will Bare Life of Mate" and I request it be admitted in evidence.
Mr. Dulles.
Any objection?
Mr. Leech.
Mr. Dulles.
It will be admitted.
(The document referred to was marked Commission's Exhibit No. 328 for identification and received in evidence.)
Mr. Redlich.
I show you Commission Exhibit No. 328 and ask you if there are any inaccuracies in that statement.
Mr. Martin.
