(Testimony of Geneva L. Hine)

Mr. Ball.
Miss HINE. No, sir; not to my knowledge.
Mr. Ball.
Did you see Mrs. Reid come back in?
Miss HINE. Yes, sir; I think I felt sure that I did. I thought that there were five or six that came in together. I thought she was one of those.
Mr. Ball.
Mrs. Reid told us she came in alone and when she came in she didn't see anybody there.

Miss HINE. Well, it could be that she did, sir. I was talking on the phones and then came the policemen and then came the press. Everybody was wanting an outside line and then our vice president came in and he said "The next one that was clear, I have to have it and so I was busy with the phone.
Mr. BALL. From the time you walked into the room you became immediately busy with the phone?
Miss HINE. Yes, sir; sure was.
Mr. Ball.
Did you see Oswald come in?

Miss HINE. My back would have been to the door he was supposed to have come in at.
Mr. Ball.
Were you facing the door he is supposed to have left by?
Miss HINE. Yes, sir.
Mr. Ball.
Do you recall seeing him?
Miss HINE. No, sir.
Mr. Ball.
Do you have any definite recollection of Mrs. Reid coming in?
Miss HINE. No, sir; I only saw four or five people that came by and they all came and were all talking about how terrible it was.
Mr. Ball.
Do you remember their names?
Miss HINE. Yes, sir.
Mr. Ball.
Who were they?

Miss HINE. Mr. Williams, Mr. Molina (spelling), Miss Martha Reid, Mrs. Reid, Mrs. Sarah Stanton, and Mr. Campbell; that's all I recall, sir.
Mr. BALL. Miss Hine, this will be written up and it will be submitted for your signature if you wish, or you can waive signature right now; which do you prefer? Do you have any choice?
Miss HINE. Well, I would prefer to see it.
Mr. Ball.
Prefer to see it, all right, then this young lady will inform you to come down, read it, look it over and sign it.
Miss HINE. Okay.
Mr. Ball.
Thanks very much for coming in.
Miss HINE. You are very welcome.
