(Testimony of Billy Nolan Lovelady)

Mr. Ball.
Oswald was standing in front of the east elevator?
Mr. Lovelady.
East, on back, the elevator back.
Mr. Ball.
Did you see him?
Mr. Lovelady.
No; I didn't; I just heard his voice because---where those slats are in back of the elevator.
Mr. Ball.
Did you ever see him again that day?
Mr. Lovelady.
No.
Mr. BALL. What did you do after you went down and washed up; what did you do?
Mr. LOVELADY. Well, I went over and got my lunch and went upstairs and got a coke and come on back down.
Mr. Ball.
Upstairs on what floor?

Mr. LOVELADY. That's on the second floor; so, I started going to the domino room where I generally went in to set down and eat and nobody was there and I happened to look on the outside and Mr. Shelley was standing outside with Miss Sarah Stanton, I believe her name is, and I said, "Well, I'll go out there and talk with them, sit down and eat my lunch out there, set on the steps," so I went out there.
Mr. Ball.
You ate your lunch on the steps?
Mr. Lovelady.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Ball.
Who was with you?
Mr. Lovelady.
Bill Shelley and Sarah Stanton, and right behind me
Mr. Ball.
What was that last name?
Mr. Lovelady.
Stanton.
Mr. Ball.
What is the first name?
Mr. Lovelady.
Bill Shelley.
Mr. Ball.
And Stanton's first name?
Mr. Lovelady.
Miss Sarah Stanton.
Mr. Ball.
Did you stay on the steps
Mr. Lovelady.
.Yes.
Mr. Ball.
Were you there when the President's motorcade went by
Mr. Lovelady.
Right.
Mr. Ball.
Did you hear anything?
Mr. Lovelady.
Yes, sir; sure did.
Mr. Ball.
What did you hear?

Mr. LOVELADY. I thought it was firecrackers or somebody celebrating the arrival of the President. It didn't occur to me at first what had happened until this Gloria came running up to us and told us the President had been shot.
Mr. Ball.
Who was this girl?
Mr. Lovelady.
Gloria Calvary.
Mr. Ball.
Gloria Calvary?
Mr. Lovelady.
Yes.
Mr. Ball.
Where does she work?
Mr. Lovelady.
Southwestern Publishing Co.
Mr. Ball.
Where was the direction of the sound?
Mr. Lovelady.
Right there around that concrete little deal on that knoll.
Mr. Ball.
That's where it sounded to you?
Mr. Lovelady.
Yes, sir; to my right. I was standing as you are going down the steps, I was standing on the right, sounded like it was in that area.
Mr. Ball.
From the underpass area?
Mr. Lovelady.
Between the underpass and the building right on that knoll.
Mr. Ball.
I have got a picture here, Commission Exhibit 369. Are you on that picture?
Mr. Lovelady.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Ball.
Take a pen or pencil and mark an arrow where you are.
Mr. Lovelady.
Where I thought the shots are?
Mr. Ball.
No; you in the picture.
Mr. Lovelady.
Oh, here (indicating).
Mr. Ball.
Draw an arrow down to that; do it in the dark. You got an arrow in the dark and one in the white pointing toward you. Where were you when the picture was taken?
