(Testimony of Marrion L. Baker)

Mr. Baker.
Secret Service took Mr. Oswald in there and questioned him and I couldn't get out by him while they were questioning him, and I did get to see him at that time.
Mr. Dulles.
You saw him for a moment at that time?
Mr. Baker.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Belin.
Officer Baker, you then left the second floor lunchroom with Mr. Truly, is that correct?
Mr. Baker.
That is right, sir.
Mr. Belin.
How long did you stay in the lunchroom after Truly identified this person as being an employee?
Mr. Baker.
Just momentarily. As he said, "Yes, he works here," I turned and went on up the stairs.
Mr. Belin.
All right. Do you have any time estimate as to the period of time that elapsed between the time that you first got to the head of the stairs and saw some movement through that first doorway and the time you left-to go back up to the flight of stairs going to the third floor?
Mr. Baker.
I would say approximately maybe 30 seconds, something like that. It was a real quick interview, you know, and then I left.
Mr. Belin.
All right. As you left, did you notice whether or not the man in the lunchroom did anything or started moving anywhere?
Mr. Baker.
No, sir. As I left he was still in the position that he was when. ever I was facing him.
Mr. Belin.
You then went where?
Mr. Baker.
I immediately turned and went on, started on, up the stairways.
Mr. Belin.
All right. After going up the stairways, do you know what numbered floor it was---I will ask you this, did you take the stairway all the way to the top?
Mr. Baker.
No, sir; we caught that elevator, it seemed like we went up either one or two floors, and Mr. Truly said "Let's take the elevator, here it is."
Mr. Belin.
Did you take an east or west elevator?
Mr. Baker.
We took the east elevator.
Mr. Belin.
Now, the nearest elevator to you when you got off a flight of stairs would have been the east or the west?
Mr. Baker.
The west.
Mr. Belin.
When You got off the flight of stairs Mr. Truly said, "Here is an elevator," did the west elevator appear to be there?
Mr. Baker.
I didn't notice. I was looking around over the building at the time he said, "Let's take the elevator" and I just followed him on around.
Mr. Belin.
You went to an east elevator?
Mr. Baker.
That is right, sir.
Mr. Belin.
How far did it appear you rode up the elevator?
Mr. Baker.
It was a. short ride. We just, either went one or two floors. I couldn't remember. I was still looking at the floors, you know, as we went up.
Mr. Belin.
As you rode up on the elevator, did you notice whether or not you passed the elevator on the west side?
Mr. Baker.
No, sir; I didn't notice.
Mr. Belin.
Did you notice or hear anything to indicate that the elevator on the west side might have been moving?
Mr. Baker.
No, sir.
Mr. Belin.
Did you take the east elevator as far as it would go?
Mr. Baker.
Yes, sir; we did.
Mr. Belin.
And then what did you do?
Mr. Baker.
We had to walk up another flight of stairs to get up to the top floor.
Mr. Belin.
To get up to the roof?
Mr. Baker.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Belin.
When you got off on the seventh floor or the top floor--
Mr. Baker.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Belin.
Did you notice whether or not the other elevator was there?
Mr. Baker.
No, sir; I didn't.
Mr. Belin.
You didn't notice. You got off the east elevator and then what did you do?
