He noted that she previously had identified it for the press. Warren said Mrs. Oswald was not in "protective custody," although she was whisked in and out of the hearing room by Secret Service agents and was allowed to talk to no one. He said this arrangement was desired by Mrs. Oswald and her attorney, John Thorne of Grand Prairie, Te.x. The chief justice said he also preferred that Mrs. Oswald avoid reporters now because he did not want to see her upset while the hearing was going on. He described her as cooperative in every way.
