(Testimony of Marrion L. Baker)

Mr. Belin.
When you continued moving on the elevator after you talked to Inspector Sawyer how far did you go on the elevator?
Mr. Baker.
We went to the, I believe it would be the first floor there.
Mr. Belin.
All right. You got off the elevator then?
Mr. Baker.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Belin.
Did you leave Mr. Truly or did you stay with him?
Mr. Baker.
I left Mr. Truly there.
Mr. Belin.
Then what did you do?
Mr. Baker.
I immediately went on out. I was with this motorcade and I went right on straight through the front door and got on my motorcycle and tried to find out what happened to the motorcade.
Mr. Belin.
Officer Baker, when you left the building had the building been sealed off or not?
Mr. Baker.
Yes, sir; there was an officer at the front door.
Mr. Belin.
The officer at the front door, was he stopping people from coming in and out or what?
Mr. Baker.
I assumed that he was but I, you know, just went on out.
Mr. Belin.
All right.
When you got to the first floor on the east elevator did you notice whether the west elevator was there?
Mr. Baker.
No, sir; I didn't.
Mr. Belin.
Was there anything else that you observed in or about the Texas School Book Depository Building at that day that you haven't told us about that you can think of right now?
Mr. Baker.
No, sir; I can't think of anything else.
Mr. Belin.
From the time you went into the building how long did it take you to go up and make your searches and come on down until the time you left, to the best of your recollection?
Mr. Baker.
I would say that I was in there approximately 15 minutes.
Mr. Belin.
And you left there right at the time that you left Mr. Truly on the first floor?
Mr. Baker.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Belin.
In this time sequence you mentioned you were on the roof more than 5 minutes, that could be 25 or 30 or 10 or 15 or what?
Mr. Baker.
This, to my recollection, it seemed like I shouldn't have stayed up there over 10 minutes anyway, if that long.
Mr. Belin.
So you would say somewhere between 5 and 10 minutes?
Mr. Baker.
I just ran around up there looking for something; I didn't find it and then we came on down.
Mr. Belin.
Mr. Dulles, are there any questions that you have?
Mr. Dulles.
I have no more questions. Have you any questions?
Mr. Belin.
Off the record.
(Discussion off the record.)
Mr. Belin.
Officer Baker, I believe you testified that you later saw Lee Harvey Oswald at the police station of the homicide office, is that correct?
Mr. Baker.
That is correct, sir.
. Mr. BELIN. Was this later on that same day?
Mr. Baker.
Yes, it was.
Mr. Belin.
Would you state whether or not the man who was shown to you in the police station as Lee Harvey Oswald was or was not the same man that you saw and encountered on the second floor lunchroom of the Texas School Book Depository Building on that day?
Mr. Baker.
He was the same man.
Mr. Belin.
Is there anything else about his clothes that you can remember or his dress that you haven't talked about here?
Mr. Baker.
No, sir; I can't.
Mr. Dulles.
Do you recall whether or not he was wearing the same clothes, did he appear to you the same when you saw him in the police station as when you saw him in the lunchroom?
Mr. Baker.
Actually just looking at him, he looked like he didn't have the same thing on.
Mr. Belin.
He looked as though he did not have the same thing on?
