I had the definite impression or the thouciht flipped through my mind that not that these people were collaborators but that these students were singing ou peop e or conversation and political argument and also attempting to obtain a feel for what has been happening from these prisoners from an American point of view. Sort of elicitation to get a feel for American perspectives. #66 Tell me some more about the prisoners that have been chosen for this discussion. #31 One man that strikes a a balding.. .bald man on top and he is..he has a beard and a rather almost cher (phQ0etic) faced.

She has a.... #66 A woman hostage or a woman student? +53 #31 Hostage. She has a shoulder length (pause) she has a roundish face and a jaul. I have this riding of a freckled complexion. Not blotched but freckles and a sharp bridge of the nose. I see here with just above shoulder length hair. Wanted to put her there a sitting back a little ways, but, still like leaning back in her chair. #66 Ok. We've been at this for quite awhile now. I would like to give you the opportunity to add anything that you would like to add now and then prepare to draw the ides that you've had. #31 I've got a backache. There is another....I'm sure there is another man here that is a hostage as well. #66 Ok. Now we'll draw the perceptions that you've had of the target. #31 Ok. First (pause) I had the definite feeling where I started out I had the feeling I was at the right end of the building where the notch is cut of it. If you follow what I mean. There's a notch in the building somewhere. OK. Feeling that there were series of low windows along this side here. OK. But, that then on the left side of this I had the feeling that there was a little bit of a porch developed... porch type structure developed, ok.

And, (pause) there's a break in it. And, that break is the hallway I was talking about, ok. The hallway goes back in like this, ok. and this is all covered over of course. Like that. Let me see if I can ..... ok..... and there's where the door is, I was talking about. There on the right side. Like that. Ok. I had the feeling that back in here was dark that the left....that's what I was talking about. id i bi thi h f th ildi T b tt b h s s e ere o g aV s u ress e u ng h no....on the left has no windows, or anything, it's like sta.... I had the feeling I was standing along side of one of these yr modern, out_ ;/Fireplaces that are on the back of the house and you come up next to this thing, and you just have this ...this massive feeling of just a blank, brick, solid massive thing on the left. OK. #66 Which would be directly across from the doorway. #31 the door. Right. From the door: 0k. And I had a linear (phonetic) feeling as though hiii-s. small porch ...nominal porch only..... just a little ra ' cover ....was....was nominally held up by 4x4s or about that size. I couldn't tell if h awes round squa~ttr Te u ['o? ome posts here, in the foreground. When I went back of the hall that I'm drawing, I looked out and I saw them again. #66 So we have this hallway, that you call, or the entrance that actually goes in there, is actually like a piece of the building goes back in, and you have to take go into that piece of the building that is missing, and then take a right to go into the door to get into the place. #31 Right, Right. Correct. I did not perceive any other doors back there. Just the one on the right. That's all I am going to draw because I wasn't paying too much attention to the roof. A little bit of an overhang over the top of the windows on the main side of the thing. That's one. Now, I'll draw an overhead in two. Like that. Along the right side, I didn't see anything back, along the right side I had the feeling there was a wall that went out and was somewhat of a..somewhat of a do you describe it..a hill with b..v? planted along this wall and this went on like tjis.

Why don't you draw a little.. .guard position or sentry position. #31 I'll just put squatting guard because I had the feeling he was sort goofing off for a quick smoke. Maybe he was blowing some hash. I don't know. I'll draw the dotted line here because I'm not too sure this is the porch area and a couple little things....feeling of windows, inset, but windows are drawn here .... on the right side. Now, I had the feeling of a trail or a.... well, it was more a feeling of a gravel path somewhere to my left. So when I stood out here on the porch and looked out, I could see a tree here and another tree behind it. Sort of in a row, pointing to the building but partially hidden but I could see across this open space, over to the left of number two that felt like a gravel path and I would like to say that it was a gravel asphalt combination. It wasn't really a gravel pass that when you step in it your foot sinks in, but, a path that's gravely and rough, but solid and that it got little curbs....1 had this funny feeling it had little asphalt curbs along it to sort of keep the grass out. Little tiny asphalt curbs. Continuing to work on two then as the overhead. I had the feeling that there was a counter ...How am I going to do this? a door behind me. h re. There is SO t111hg there.

This wall is a box in number two. You will notice there's a dotted box here. This wall here, number three, that's right inside the building is the edge of that box. So there's something.... There's a box there that cuts everything off. In the back is the wall. A feeling of a long and low window which, when you get right down to it, I believe is just this first window here. It's probably another room right here. Like this. Here is (pause) is where the desks are. Come on #31 you can draw a better perspective than that. The tops of the desk are almost along the window. PAUSE I would say that there might be several other desks there. #66 Ok. That gives me an idea where this entrance is ....what side of the building this entrance is in relationship to where this room might be in the complex. From this point I asked you to look for some people, and you found yourself in an area where people were reading something. #31 They were_researcfiing, reading. They had equipment . They were looking and digging.

I'll put a little map here .... as though I was standing at the door .... here in the foreground is the counter ...... here in the background ...ok...there's a hallway there.... counter ...... come on #31 you can do better than that. When I started to look for people, I went this way because there was nobody out here in the forward area. Nobody out here in this central ......where the counter is... everything else. So, I went across the room, katty corner, like this, into the left foreground of three, which is into this hallway. All right." Having been shown the overhead imagery....the general structure of the building I had the feeling that I was cruising down this hallway and that I got pretty darn near to the end of it and then made a left. The left...the idea .... the left which is going out on the left wing of the building...the far wing of the building is where I was being drawn. Is where I was going.

Here, I had a feeling of....feeling of a window .... on this desk thing...this goes around two corners, I think, was..uh..I thought ...technical things went through my mind..... computers, radio, microfish reader, records. This kind.... all these things came through my mind because there is some sort of ...a piece of equipment there sitting up on this desk which is electronic. I had the computer feeling..... feeling was based on a feeling that these guys...they were looking at a cathodray (phonetic) tube of some kind. They were sitting out here in the foreground. Guy was sitting... feeling like...he?-was holding open' s big manual or was `fending something. He's sitting here. The other guy...the other person had their back to me a gdwas 'Tike this sitir)g,there_.baking at-it guy was reading, and he was reading and they all trying to dig up garbage.

This guy's like helping him out. Both in there. That's their project. That's a window. Uh.. I got a feeling for massive papers laying all over the place. Books and papers very disorganized and jumbled .....somebody had been working there for an awful long time ..... papers strewn all over desk. That was somewhere down in...on sketch...
