(Testimony of Robert Edwin Edwards)

Mr. Edwards.
there, and you would be facing in a northerly direction toward the School Book Depository Building, is that correct?
Mr. Edwards.
That's correct.
Mr. Belin.
Who were you standing with?
Mr. Edwards.
Ronald Fischer.
Mr. Belin.
What time did you get there ?
Mr. Edwards.
I don't know.
Mr. Belin.
How long before the motorcade came by, if you know?
Mr. Edwards.
Where is that little paper and I will tell you.
Mr. Belin.
Can you remember without looking at any paper right now?
Mr. Edwards.
No; not really. I can guess.
Mr. Belin.
What is your best guess? We will understand that it is just a-
Mr. Edwards.
Maybe I'd better not guess.
Mr. Belin.
All right, if you don't care to guess, that is fine. We would prefer that you not make any statement unless you feel fairly sure about it. What did you do when you got to this point?
Mr. Edwards.
Stood there and waited for the motorcade to come.
Mr. Belin.
Did you look around at all?
Mr. Edwards.
Certainly.
Mr. BELIN. Did you ever take a look at the south side of the Texas School Book Depository Building? That would be facing--you would be looking at the south side of the building?
Mr. Edwards.
Yes.
Mr. Belin.
Did you ever look at that at all?
Mr. Edwards.
Yes.
Mr. Belin.
Before the motorcade came by?
Mr. Edwards.
Yes.
Mr. Belin.
What did you see?

Mr. EDWARDS. Nothing of importance except maybe one individual who was up there in the corner room of the sixth floor which was crowded in among boxes.
Mr. Belin.
You say on the sixth floor?
Mr. Edwards.
Yes.
Mr. Belin.
What portion of the sixth floor as you looked at the building to .your right or to your left?
Mr. Edwards.
To my right.
Mr. Belin.
How near the corner?
Mr. Edwards.
The corner window.
Mr. Belin.
The corner window there?
Mr. Edwards.
Right
Mr. BELIN Could you describe this individual at all? Was he a white man or a Negro?
Mr. Edwards.
White man.
Mr. Belin.
Tall or short, if you know?
Mr. Edwards.
I couldn't say.
Mr. Belin.
Did he have anything in his hand at all that you could see?
Mr. Edwards.
No.
Mr. Belin.
Could you see his hands?
Mr. Edwards.
I don't remember.
Mr. Belin.
What kind of clothes did he have on?
Mr. Edwards.
Light colored shirt, short sleeve and open neck.
Mr. Belin.
How much of him could you see? Shoulder up, waist up, knees up, or what?
Mr. Edwards.
From the waist on. From the abdomen or stomach up what,
Mr. Belin.
Was the man fat, thin, or average in size?
Mr. Edwards.
Oh, about average. Possibly thin.
Mr. Belin.
Could you tell whether he was light skinned or medium skin or if you could tell?
Mr. Edwards.
No.
Mr. Belin.
Was the sun shining in or not, if you know?
Mr. Edwards.
Don't know.
