(Testimony of Linnie Mae Randle)

Mrs. Randle.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Ball.
You had never visited in Mrs. Paine's home?
Mrs. Randle.
I was in her home on one occasion that I remember at a birthday party for one of her children and she invited mine.
Mr. Ball.
How long ago?
Mrs. Randle.
It has been about a year ago.
Mr. Ball.
That is the only time you have visited Mrs. Paine?
Mrs. Randle.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Ball.
Did you ever meet Marina Oswald?
Mrs. Randle.
Yes, sir; I did.
Mr. Ball.
When did you meet her?
Mrs. Randle.
The first time I met her was over at this Mrs. Roberts. I had gone up there to see Mrs. Roberts and her. Mrs. Oswald and Mrs. Paine was over there drinking coffee, that was the first time I met her.
Mr. Ball.
When was that?
Mrs. Randle.
Well, I believe it was the first week in October.
Mr. Ball.
That is the first time you had ever met Mrs. Oswald?
Mrs. Randle.
Officially met her. I had seen her out in the yard and through the neighbor I knew who she was, I hadn't met her until that time.
Mr. Ball.
Did you ever see her again to talk to her, Marina Oswald?
Mrs. Randle.
Well, she couldn't speak English, "How are you" and things like that was about all she could say and I did visit with Mrs. Roberts quite often and so she would be out in the yard and she would speak.
Mr. Ball.
In whose yards, Mrs. Roberts' yard or Mrs. Paine's?
Mrs. Randle.
Mrs. Paine's. She played with her children, and kept the yard and things like that.
Mr. Ball.
But on this one occasion she was in the house, Mrs. Roberts' house?
Mrs. Randle.
Mrs. Roberts.
Mr. Ball.
With Mrs. Paine, Mrs. Roberts and yourself?
Mrs. Randle.
That is right.
Mr. Ball.
Was there some conversation at that time about her husband Lee Oswald?
Mrs. Randle.
Well, they had--it was just general knowledge in the neighborhood that he didn't have a job and she was expecting a baby. Of course. I didn't know where he was or anything. And of course you know just being neighborly and everything, we felt sorry for Marina because her baby was due right away as we understood it, and he didn't have any work, so they said, so it was just--
Mr. Ball.
Mrs. Paine told you that Lee didn't have any work?
Mrs. Randle.
Well, I suppose. It was just in conversation.
Mr. Ball.
Marina didn't take part in the conversation?
Mrs. Randle.
No. She couldn't. So far as I know, she couldn't speak.
Mr. Ball.
You and Mrs. Roberts and Mrs. Paine talked about it?
Mrs. Randle.
Yes.
Mr. Ball.
Was there anything said then about the Texas School Book Depository as a place he might get a job?
Mrs. Randle.
Well, we didn't say that he might get a job, because I didn't know there was a job open. The reason that we were being helpful, Wesley had just looked for a job, and I had helped him to try to find one. We listed several places that he might go to look for work. When you live in a place you know some places that someone with, you know, not very much of an education can find work.
So, it was among one of the places that we mentioned. We mentioned several others, and Mrs. Paine said that well, he couldn't apply for any of the jobs that would require driving because he couldn't drive, and it was just in conversation that you might talk just any day and not think a thing on earth about it. In fact, I didn't even know that he had even tried any place that we mentioned.
Mr. Ball.
What were some of the other places mentioned?
Mrs. Randle.
Well, I remember two of them. Mrs. Roberts entered into the conversation and, of course, she is more familiar with the place than I am. It was Manor Bakeries which was a home delivery service.
