(Testimony of Jeanne De Mohrenschildt Resumed)

Mr. Jenner.
Leeds Coats, Inc.?
Mr. Jenner.
Also 1956, wasn't it?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. It wasn't 1956. It was 1957. No. Leeds was 1956.
Judy Bond was 1957, and Nancy Greer was 1957. You are right.
Mr. Jenner.
Then you worked for Martins in 1942, 1944, and 1945, and in the fall of 1946?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Well, you cannot call it exactly working. You see, we have in New York, they celebrate Jewish holidays, 3 days. And instead of staying home, I went and I worked in retail store, which happens to be Martins.
Mr. Jenner.
Martins Fashion Apparel Store?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Yes; it was a store in Brooklyn. I knew buyers very well. And it gave me a good outlook of what actually people want, on the floor. That was the general idea.
Mr. Jenner.
All right. I just wnt to be sure about the time. 1942, 1944, and 1945.
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. It sounds more or less correct. But I don't remember for sure.
Mr. Jenner.
And the fall of 1946. Then you worked for a while for R. H. Macy.
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Just on the same basis--just for a couple of days.
Mr. Jenner.
That is all right. I just want to know that you did.
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. That is right.
Mr. Jenner.
About when was that?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. I don't remember. It must be before 1947, because when I switched to my next firm, I didn't do it any more. I just couldn't combine it.
Mr. Jenner.
Way back in 1941 you worked for a while for Bloom and Eagen.
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. That is right, a dress firm.
Mr. Jenner.
Can you remember about when that was? You worked there as a model?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. That was before I even started with Leeds.
Mr. Jenner.
You worked there as a model.
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. That is right.
Mr. Jenner.
Lombardy Coat Co.?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. I believe it was one of my very first ones. I don't remember which one was first. Just a very, very, short time, a couple of months. I remember I worked for Lombardy when Pearl Harbor happened. That was December 7. I will never forget it.
Mr. Jenner.
And your employment in Dallas was----
Mr. Jenner.
I should take it chronologically. What was the company for which you worked in 1953?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Nardis; Nardis of Dallas.
Mr. Jenner.
And that spanned about what period of time?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. That spanned almost a year, starting summer 1953.
Mr. Jenner.
All right.
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. I think I terminated the contract around April.
Mr. Jenner.
Around April of 1954?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Yes; approximately.
Mr. Jenner.
Then you worked for whom?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. From then on, I moved to California, and I started to work for Style Garment, Los Angeles.
Mr. Jenner.
That would be 1954?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. That was 1954, and I think it lasted not too long, just until Christmas. And then I had nothing at all until I had an offer from Clark in the spring of 1955.
Mr. Jenner.
And that----
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. That was my first job with Clark, because I worked for Nardis before.
