AUDIO TAPE INTERVIEW, Stewart Galanor: May 5, 1966.
GALANOR. Did you see anything else that might be of interest?
WINBORN. I just saw some smoke coming out in a—a motorcycle patrolman leaped off his machine and go up towards that smoke that come out from under the trees on the right hand side of the motorcade. Now that was—
GALANOR. That’s up that grassy hill.
WINBORN. Yes.
GALANOR. Grassy knoll. There’s a wooden fence there.
WINBORN. Yes.
GALANOR. And you saw smoke.
WINBORN. Yes.
GALANOR. How many? Was it puffs of smoke?
WINBORN. It looked like a little haze, Like somebody had shot firecrackers or something like that. Or somebody had taken a puff off of a cigarette and maybe probably nervous and blowing out smoke, you know. Oh, it looked like it was more than one person that might possibly have exhaled smoke. But it was a haze there. From my general impression it looked like it was at least ten feet long and about, oh, two or three feet wide.
GALANOR. And this was where now exactly?
WINBORN. That was back over the side walk underneath those trees, that—of that fence that you were talking about. . . .
GALANOR. The FBI spoke with you March 17th, 1964, I believe.
WINBORN. That’s right.
GALANOR. And they make no mention about the smoke that you saw. Did you tell them about that, that you saw smoke on the grassy knoll?
WINBORN. Oh yes. Oh yes.
GALANOR. They didn’t include it in their report.
WINBORN. Well.
GALANOR. Do you have any idea why they didn’t
WINBORN. I don’t have any idea. They are specialists in their field, and I’m just an amateur.
