    REPORTER: "IT'S BEEN SAID THAT YOU HAD THE SUSPICION THAT YOUR SON MIGHT HAVE BEEN A U.S. INTELLIGENCE AGENT. DO YOU HAVE THAT SUSPICION?"



    MRS. OSWALD: "YES, THIS I WILL COMMENT ON. I BELIEVE THAT LEE IS AN INTELLIGENCE AGENT -- THAT I HAVE STATED SO TO THE WARREN COMMISSION."



    REPORTER: "WHAT WAS YOUR BASIS FOR THAT?"



    MRS OSWALD: "I HAVE MANY, MANY DOCUMENTS TO BASE THAT ON. I HAVE AS MUCH CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE SAYING THAT LEE IS AN AGENT AS THE DALLAS POLICE HAS CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE THAT LEE IS THE MURDERER OF PRESIDENT KENNEDY."



    REPORTER: "YOU MEAN THE ... EVIDENCE IS CIRCUMSTANTIAL ALSO?"



    MRS. OSWALD: "WELL, IF I COULD PROVE IT I WOULD SAY SO BUT WHO CAN PROVE WHO'S A C.I.A. MAN."

    Background: MRS. MARGUERITE OSWALD, MOTHER OF LEE HARVEY OSWALD, SAID THIS WEEK SHE BELIEVED HER SON WAS A UNITED STATES "INTELLIGENCE AGENT" WHO HAD BEEN SET UP TO TAKE THE BLAME" FOR THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT KENNEDY. SHE MADE THIS STATEMENT TO NEWSMAN AFTER COMPLETING THREE DAYS OF TESTIMONY BEFORE THE PRESIDENTIAL COMMISSION INVESTIGATING THE ASSASSINATION.

    THE DIRECTOR OF THE CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY (C.I.A.), MR. JOHN McCONE, HAS SINCE DENIED THAT OSWALD EVER WAS AN AGENT, SAYING "HE WAS NEVER DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY LINKED WITH THE C.I.A." AND CHIEF JUSTICE EARL WARREN, HEADING THE ASSASSINATION INQUIRY, SAID MRS. OSWALD HAD PRESENTED NO EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT HER BELIEF.

    MEANWHILE, IN DALLAS, TEXAS, PREPARATION CONTINUE FOR THE TRIAL OF JACK RUBY, ACCUSED OF MURDERING LEE OSWALD IN THE DALLAS POLICE STATION. SELECTION OF A JURY WILL BEGIN ON MONDAY.
