(Testimony of Jeanne De Mohrenschildt Resumed)

Mr. Jenner.
we can do to help because it is our duty and I cannot say it is a pleasure, but we are glad to do anything we can, but we cannot be hurt like that because George would lose that now, you know we will be in a rough spot again until something else come up and nobody knows when it will come up.
For me, right now it is very difficult in designing because I don't like to live in New York. In New York I can have fantastic job in 2 minutes, but I don't want to live in New York, I don't like the climate, and in Dallas people are so narrowminded, you know.
Now that we knew Oswalds you know they really think we are boogeyman or something. So it is really rough for both of us, and we are very anxious that something would be done that wouldn't affect us in Haiti, let's put it, at the moment, and in future, especially with George's little girl.
If you can do anything about it, we would greatly appreciate it.
Mr. Jenner.
Thank you very much.
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. You want the addresses?
Mr. Jenner.
No; those names will be sufficient for us. Our procedure is that you may read your deposition if you wish, and then sign it. But you may also waive that. You don't have to do it unless you wish.
Your husband decided that he might be curious enough to read his deposition, but if he didn't appear today that that meant he waived the necessity of reading it.
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Yes; he is too busy. He has so many little things to do.
Mr. Jenner.
Would you like to handle it the way he has handled it?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. I am sure, because if something was not just exactly so, I don't think it really matters.
Mr. Jenner.
These men are quite competent and they take down everything.
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. That is wonderful.
Mr. Jenner.
Then you will waive your reading and signing?
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. Yes. Do you want me to sign it? Does it have to be signed?
Mr. Jenner.
No; not unless you insist on it.
Mrs. DE MOHRENSCHILDT. I don't care. It doesn't matter one way or the other.
Mr. Jenner.
Thank you very, very much.

Ruth Hyde Paine

Testimony of Ruth Hyde Paine

The testimony of Ruth Hyde Paine was taken at 9:15 a.m., on March 21, 1964, at 200 Maryland Avenue NE., Washington, D.C., by Messrs. Albert E. Jenner, Jr., and Norman Redlich, assistant counsels of the President's Commission.
Mr. Jenner.
Let the record show that this is a continuation by deposition pursuant to leave granted by the Commission of Mrs. Paine's testimony before the Commission which we had concluded late in the day yesterday.1
I think it might be well, in view of that transition, if Mrs. Paine were sworn again, or if you were affirmed, rather.
The REPORTER Do you affirm that the testimony you are about to give will be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
Mrs. Paine.
I do.
Mr. Jenner.
I think we might cover your background to some extent, Mrs. Paine.
Mr. Jenner.
My material indicates that you were born in New York City.
Mrs. Paine.
That is right.
Mr. Jenner.
In 1932.
Mrs. Paine.
Mr. Jenner.
And you remained in New York City until when?
Mr. Jenner.
Mr. Jenner.
1 The testimony of Mrs. Ruth Paine given before the Commission appears in another volume, and can be found by consulting the index.
