(Testimony of Malcolm O. Couch)

Mr. Belin.
Down Elm Street as it goes into the expressway there?
Mr. Couch.
That's right.
Mr. Belin.
And when you say "45° angle" would that be up or down, or are you referring to the angle of incline, or the angle of west and south?
Mr. Couch.
The angle of incline---from a horizontal position.
Mr. Belin.
All right, So, you would estimate about a 45° angle downward pointing in what would be a southwesterly direction?

Mr. COUCH. Uh--westerly direction. From looking straight on at the building, one could not tell the---uh---angle, whether it was more southward or not. In other words, something sticking out the building, I couldn't tell. It was not---it did not appear to me that it was sticking straight out the window, so to speak.
