(Testimony of Lee E. , Jr. Bowers)
Mr. BALL. Did you say that it is built on higher ground, the base of the tower on higher ground than around Houston and Elm ?
Mr. BALL. And the base of your tower is about the same height as the triple underpass, isn't it?
Mr. BALL. Now, can you tell me why you refer to that as a triple underpass? In our conversation here before you were sworn your description--you described it as a triple underpass.
Mr. BOWERS. It is just a local connotation for it since there are three streets that run under it.
Mr. BALL. That would be 13 tracks that is, the tracks altogether, that pass in front of your tower?
Mr. BOWERS. Yes; of course where the tracks converge and cross and split off to various railroad yards---
Mr. BALL: Close to noon, did you make any observation of the area around between your tower and Elm Street?
Mr. BOWERS. Yes; because of the fact that the area had been covered by police for some 2 hours. Since approximately 10 o'clock in the morning traffic had been cut off into the area so that anyone moving around could actually be observed. Since I had worked there for a number of years I was familiar with most of the people who came in and out of the area.
Mr. BOWERS. They came into the vicinity of the tower, which was at the extension of Elm Street, which runs in front of the School Depository, 'and which there is no way out. It is not a through street to anywhere.
Mr. BOWERS. Two or three railroad tracks and a small amount of parking area for the employees.
Mr. BOWERS. I do not recall the exact time, but I believe this was approximately 12:10, wouldn't be too far off.
Mr. BOWERS. That's right. Back in front of the School Depository was the only way he could get out. And I lost sight of him, I couldn't watch him.
