(Testimony of Linnie Mae Randle)

Mr. Jenner.
But there was no excitement in the neighborhood up to that point?
Mrs. Randle.
No, sir.
Mr. Ball.
I have one question, Mr. Chief Justice.
You used an expression there, that the bag appeared heavy.
Mrs. Randle.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Ball.
You meant that there was some weight appeared to--
Mrs. Randle.
To the bottom.
Mr. Ball.
To the bottom?
Mrs. Randle.
Yes. It tapered like this as he hugged it in his hand. It was more bulky toward the bottom than it was this way.
Mr. Belin.
Toward the top? More bulky toward the bottom than toward the top?
Mrs. Randle.
That is right.
Mr. Ball.
I have no further questions.
Senator COOPER. On that point--did you see Lee Oswald place the package in the automobile?
Mrs. Randle.
In the automobile. I do not know if he put it on the seat or on the floor.
Senator COOPER. I mean did you see him throw open the. door?
Mrs. Randle.
Yes, sir.
Senator COOPER. When he placed the package in there do you remember whether he used one hand or two?
Mrs. Randle.
No; because I only opened the door briefly and what made me establish the door on Wesley's car, it is an old car and that door, the window is broken and everything and it is hard to close, so that cinched in my mind which door it was, too. But it was only briefly that I looked.
Mr. Jenner.
Mr. Chief Justice, could I ask--how far away were you? You were at the kitchen door and the automobile was in the driveway, what was the distance between yourself and Mr. Oswald?
Mrs. Randle.
Sir, I don't know. The carport will take care of two cars, and then Wesley's car was on the other side of the carport so that would be three car lengths plus in between space.
Mr. Jenner.
Car widths?
Mrs. Randle.
Car widths, excuse me.
Mr. Jenner.
Was it a light day?
Mrs. Randle.
It was sort of cloudy, but there wasn't any--I mean it wasn't dark or anything like that.
Mr. Jenner.
Would you be good enough as you can recall--can you recall what the fabric of the jacket was that Mr. Oswald had on this morning, was it twill or wool or gabardine? Cotton?

Mr. RANDLE. Probably cotton or gabardine, something like that that would repel water probably, and that is just my own opinion.
Mr. Jenner.
That is your present recollection?
Mrs. Randle.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
Thank you.
The Chairman.
Mrs. Randle, thank you very much for coming, you may be excused.
