They all appear in good health but seem understandably concerned and annoyed at their unexpected imprisonment, now in its fifth day. The hostages were inter viewed by newsmen a! nearby Catavi Tuesday for the first time since they were taken prisoner Friday in retailiation for the Rovornmenl's arrest of two Communist labor leaders, Irineo Pinientel and Federico Esco bar. Under a close guard, the newsmen were led into two small rooms al the headquarters of the mine union and met the hostages, who also include West Germany, a Dutchman and nine Bolivian leelmieians. Thomas .Martin, 21, of New York, a U.S. Information serv ice olficer, said he and the other Americans were arrested after a dinner Friday night at the home of Cornelius Bloot, iJiilch mine manager.

Robert Fergerstrom of Honolulu, a Peace Corps volunteer, said ;ill the hostages were well, Bernard Rifkin, 52, of Mont clair, N.J., a U.S. labor officer, is I he fourth American. Newsmen asked Bolivian Vice President Juan l^echin, the min­ d's' leader, why I he hostages were not being kept at the mine's comfortable guest house. He replied union headquarters provided belter security. Loehin gave no indication when the hostages might be released. THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS Assassin's Wife Liked President DALLAS (AP) - The housewife who sheltered the family of President Kennedy's accused assassin says Marina Oswald was a great admirer of the nation's chief executive. Mrs. Ruth Paine, who took Russian-born Mrs. I.iec Harvey Oswald into her homo at nearby Irving for two months, told about the Oswalds' family life in an interview Tuesday with newsman Wes Wise of Dallas station KRLD-TV. On the day of the assassination, Mrs. Paine said she arose before Mrs. Oswald and her children, turned on the television set so they could watch Kennedy's arrival, and took her own young daughter to the dentist. "I left the television on lor Marina," Mrs. Paine said, "because I knew of the great admiration she had for the President." Before the day ended Oswald was arrested and charged with killing both Kennedy and Policeman J.D. Tippit. About '18 hours later a nationwide television audience and scores of newsmen saw Jack Ruby, Dallas striptease joint owner, kill Oswald. Mrs. Paine said Mrs. Oswald c;une to live with her Sept. 24 because Oswald was out of work and worried about their new baby, expected in about a month. Mrs. Oswald now is held in protective custody on the U. S. Secret Service at an undisclosed spot. Mrs. Paine said when they learned a hidden rifleman had killed the President, Mrs. Oswald was almost over&vue with grief and remarked how "awful il will be for Mrs. Kennedy to raise those two little children without a father." Mrs. Paine said she and her husband mot the Oswalds at a parly before the Oswalds left Dallas to live briefly in New Oilcans.
