(Testimony of Bonnie Williams Ray)

Mr. Williams.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Ball.
And the other day, Friday, March 20th, when we were in Dallas, you three men went to that same window, didn't you?
Mr. Williams.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Ball.
And you had your picture taken?
Mr. Williams.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Ball.
That is 489.
(The described document was marked Commission Exhibit No. 489 for identification.)
Mr. Ball.
Is that about it?
Mr. Williams.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Ball.
Why did you go there and look in that direction?
Mr. Williams.
Because, as I said before, the policeman was running toward the tracks.
Mr. Ball.
The tracks shown in this picture?
Mr. Williams.
Yes, sir. I believe that is the parking lot right here.
Mr. Ball.
And the tracks are shown in there, aren't they?
Mr. Williams.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Ball.
And were people running towards the tracks?
Mr. Williams.
Yes, sir; the policemen were.
Representative Ford.
Mr. Ball, I hate to interrupt, but I do have to go to a call of the House. I wonder if I could ask one question right here. I dislike breaking up the sequence.

Mr. Williams, when did you first know that the President's motorcade would come by the Texas School Book Depository?
Mr. Williams.
Well, I never did know the exact time. But I think my wife had mentioned it before that Friday. She had told me, because I never did have too much time reading the paper. And that morning, that Friday morning, we was on the sixth floor, and I think some fellows mentioned it to me again, some of the fellows working with me.
Representative Ford.
You did not know the motorcade was coming by your building until Friday morning?
Mr. Williams.
No, sir; I didn't know the exact way it was coming, because I hadn't been reading the papers.
Representative Ford.
You had not read the paper the day before?
Mr. Williams.
About the only thing I would read in the paper in the mornings before I leave home would be the sports.
Representative Ford.
Was it discussed in the building that morning of November 22d that the motorcade was coming by the Texas School Book Depository?
Mr. Williams.
I believe I heard a couple of fellows say-I don't remember exactly who it was-but I believe I heard them say the motorcade was coming around that way.
Representative Ford.
But it was not until Friday that you personally knew it was coming by the building?
Mr. Williams.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Dulles.
I would like to ask one question here.

When you were on the sixth floor eating your lunch, did you hear anything that made you feel that there was anybody else on the sixth floor with you?
Mr. Williams.
No, sir; I didn't hear anything.
Mr. Dulles.
You did not see anything?
Mr. Williams.
I did not see anything.
Mr. Dulles.
You were all alone as far as you knew at that time on the sixth floor?
Mr. Williams.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Dulles.
During that period of from 12 o'clock about to--10 or 15 minutes after?
Mr. Williams.
Yes, sir. I felt like I was all alone. That is one of the reasons I left--because it was so quiet.
Mr. Mccloy.
When you saw Oswald that morning, was he carrying any package? Did you see any bundle or package with him?
Mr. Williams.
No, sir; I didn't see anything other than the clipboard with the orders on it that he was filling, as I remember.
