(Testimony of George S. De Mohrenschildt Resumed)

Mr. Jenner.
of life in a factory in Minsk. Not terribly badly written, not particularly well.
Mr. Jenner.
Not good, not bad?
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Not good, not bad. Nothing that I really remember too well. I don't remember too well what was written there.
Mr. Jenner.
I will show the witness pages 220 through 244, Commission Document No. 206. Would you glance through those pages and tell me if it has the material he showed you?
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. No; I don't remember seeing that beginning.
Mr. Jenner.
Let's get over to the area in Minsk.
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. No; that is not at all familiar to me.
Mr. Jenner.
The witness is now looking at page 232.
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Starting here at the bottom of page 232 it looks familiar to me. How many mistakes he makes here, it is terrible. It does not look familiar to me. I think it was something else that he showed me. I do not recall that. That I definitely do not remember.
Mr. Jenner.
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. I would have remembered that sentence, you know.
Mr. Jenner.
You are now on page 235:
"I am having a light affair with Nell Korobka."
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. I would have remembered something like that, you see. Again another sentence I do not recall.
Mr. Jenner.
"My conquest of Anna Tachina, a girl from Riga."
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Do you want me to glance through that? It does not look like the same document.
Mr. Jenner.
If it is not the same document
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. No; I don't think it is the same document.
Mr. Jenner.
Now I will have the witness look at pages 247 through 301. This is a composition entitled "The Collective" and "Minsk, Russia," with a foreword, an autobiographical sketch of Oswald.
I will direct your attention to some of these headings, "Description of Radio Factory," "Quota Conditions," "Description of TV Shop," "Background of Shops," "Individual Workers," "Controls of Collectives," "Demonstrations in Meetings," "Factory Makeup," and "Peoples," "Layout of City of Minsk," "Tourist Permits and Tourist Passports," "Collective Farms and Schools, Vacations."
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. No; I don't remember this document, but I think I remember something, "Layout of City of Minsk," because that would have attracted my attention.
Mr. Jenner.
All right, let's find that spot.
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. That looks familiar to me.
Mr. Jenner.
First there is a heading, "About the Author." I call your attention to a statement which says, "Exotic journeys on his part to Japan and the Philippines and the scores of odd islands in the Pacific." Did he ever discuss that with you?
Mr. Jenner.
He was at Subic Bay in the Philippines?
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. No; I don't remember him mentioning that to me.
Mr. Jenner.
Now the witness is looking at part 1, which is on page 248.
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Yes; this looks slightly, vaguely familiar, starting from page 248. That looks vaguely familiar. I am not going to read all this because it looks very boring to me. I mean it is something that doesn't interest me. It looks vaguely familiar.
Mr. Jenner.
Does it also refresh your recollection of discussions you had with him before his life in Russia?
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. That looks familiar to me.
Mr. Jenner.
This whole division?
Mr. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. This whole division looks familiar to me. As I said before, I did not look carefully when I originally saw this document, and I think this is the same one, because it looks familiar to me.
I just glanced through. I realized that it is not fit for publication. You can see it right away. Who is interested to read about comrade this and comrade that, you see?
