(Testimony of Jeanne De Mohrenschildt Resumed)

Mr. Jenner.
he try to cover it up a little bit, you know? It doesn't make sense at all to me. I tell you the things that don't make sense to me. That was No. I doesn't make any sense.
No. 2, knowing more or less and observing him as a personality, if he would have done it he would say "I did it" and he would boast about it yet. That is the kind of a person he is. For some reason he clammed up for 2 days, and I know the Dallas police is pretty rough. He didn't have a good time, I am sure, and he did not.
What was his reasons? Maybe he was frightened he didn't want to admit it, he decided maybe, and maybe he didn't do it. How do I know?
It doesn't make sense at all. Anybody could take the rifle out of the garage. I understand it was wrapped up in a blanket and standing in a garage at Ruth Paine's; anybody could do it.
Mr. Jenner.
You know nothing about any rifle except on that Saturday, that Easter Saturday when you went to their home? That is the first time?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. That is right.
Mr. Jenner.
That you knew anything about a rifle?
Mr. Jenner.
Now, is there anything that occurs to you that you think might be helpful to the Commission that you would like to add?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. I can't think of anything. The only thing, I would like to definitely dip into is Yaeko, because that is the only person that was, you know, what I mean--maybe it was just because she is an intelligent girl and she likes to read a lot. Maybe they discussed some books, they hit it off this way, you know. Maybe he was attracted to her just as a cute Japanese girl. I understand he was with Marines staying in the east.
Oh, yes; I remember now. He was always telling--Marina was telling me the Japanese are such wonderful girls. They make such good wives and so on and so forth.
Mr. Jenner.
That is, Oswald had told her that?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Yes; and that is why Marina was so irritated that he liked Yaeko. And she was sort of blase about it. He can take her, you know, take his little Japanese girl; she doesn't need him, something like that.
Mr. Jenner.
She needled him?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Yes; she needled him with Yaeko. It may be completely imagination, you know, all of these things.
Mr. Jenner.
You have appeared voluntarily?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. What did you say?
Mr. Jenner.
You have appeared voluntarily for the taking of your deposition?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Oh, absolutely.
Mr. Jenner.
You and your husband received a letter, did you not, from Mr. Rankin?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Yes; we did.
Mr. Jenner.
General counsel of the Commission?
Mr. Jenner.
And with which was enclosed a copy of the Senate Joint Resolution 137?
Mr. Jenner.
Which is the legislation under which the Commission was created, and a copy of President Lyndon Johnson's----
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Yes; two copies.
Mr. Jenner.
His Executive order creating the Commission, No. 11130?
Mr. Jenner.
And fixing its responsibilities?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Yes; I don't know the details, but I assumed that is what it was.
Mr. Jenner.
And you also received a copy of the regulations and rules under which these proceedings of the Commission are undertaken?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. I don't remember. I probably did.
Mr. Jenner.
I have no more. I appreciate very much your coming, and the Commission does. This has been somewhat of a burden, of course, to you and
Mr. Jenner.
