(Testimony of Ruth Hyde Paine Resumed)

Mr. Jenner.
I can tell you what they are, it will be her background, some of which she has now given in regard to her study of the Russian language.
More formal proof of her calendar, and her address book. Also her general background which I have already mentioned. Some correspondence between herself and her mother, and the items that Mrs. Paine has now mentioned she would like to relate herself.
Mrs. Paine.
One of which we took care of already.
Mr. Jenner.
One of which we took care of. We will cover those and I was going to ask her questions tomorrow, some of which we have already covered of Lee Harvey Oswald's personality and habits and actions.
I am going to ask here about Mrs. Shirley Martin, who has appeared on the scene since the assassination, and appears to be a self-appointed investigator, and to the extent that there has been any contact between Mrs. Paine and Mrs. Shirley Martin, and then inquire, I may not even do this because we have covered a very great deal of the conversations and discussions between Marina and Mrs. Paine on various possible subjects, and I can see from my list we have covered many of them already.
Senator COOPER. Let it be ordered that evidence will be taken this way, with this reservation, of course, if the Commission determines after studying the deposition that it would be necessary for her to be called again, you would be willing to come again before the Commission to testify.
Mrs. Paine.
I would certainly be willing if there is any need for my coming.
Mr. Jenner.
In addition to this, Mr. Chairman, as I think already appears of record, I will come to Mrs. Paine's home in Irving, Tex., sometime on Monday or Monday evening or if she finds it more convenient, on Tuesday of next week to inquire of her with a court reporter present relative to the curtain red package, and I also will make a tour of her home and as we move about her home the reporter will record the conversation between us, questions and answers.
Senator COOPER. Are there any further questions?
Mr. Jenner.
That is all. Thank you, sir.
Senator COOPER. All right, then we will stand in recess subject to the call of the Chairman of the Commission.
(Translations of letters introduced in evidence in the course of Mrs. Paine's testimony are reproduced in the exhibit volumes. )
Mr. Jenner.
