Oswald exhibited different degrees intensity in his cross-outs. The first
degree of cross-out can be termed retriveable. Here we see the information
as if it had never been deleted. The above entry concerns Pauline Bates, a
stenographer Oswald hired to type up some of his recollections of Soviet
life. There was nothing to hide in this entry since Bates had no intelligence
community connection.

The next degree of intensity of cross-out may still be retrievable if you have
are aware of the general framework of Oswald’s life. For example “Amer
Ex” appears above “Rail tickets.” The words “Am Ex” appeared in another
address book page.

The next degree of the intensity of Oswald’s cross-outs was designed to
make the words almost completely illegible; however, the nature of some of
the cross-outs can be determined from context. The words Oswald
crossed-out above had something to do with his having been given
permission to remain in the Soviet Union as a “Person without citizenship.”
They are all separated by wavy lines. I detect the letters KGB as having
been crossed-out.

On Monday, October 19, 1959, Oswald was interviewed by Radio Moscow.
In a Question and Answer sheet that Oswald prepared upon his re-entry to
the United States he stated:
Did you make statements against the U.S. there? yes. What
about that type [tape] recording? I made a recording for Radio
Moscow which was broadcast the following Sunday, October
25, 1959.
In another part of this Q and A Oswald denied having broadcast anti-
American propaganda. Apparently he felt that having done so would
prevent his re-entry into the United States. Marina Oswald questioned her
husband about the radio broadcast he had made. Oswald explained Leo
Setyaev had helped him make some money by assisting in the broadcast.
Oswald said he criticized the United States and praised Russia as a better
place to live. Leo Setyaev or Lev Setyaev was either a KGB agent or
someone with close ties to the CIA who was married to a defector known
as “Moscow Molly.”
Moscow Molly broadcasts an English language program on
Radio Moscow, reportedly containing surprisingly factual and
intimate details of life at U.S. bases in the Alaskan Command,
ostensibly calculated to destroy troop morale at these bases.
James Angleton denied that the CIA had any information on Setyaev other
than what the FBI had amassed. Angleton commented on the telephone
number that appeared twice in this entry:
This agency has no additional information on the Moscow
telephone number V-3-65-88 which Oswald connected with Lev
Setyayev of Radio Moscow. The 1959 Moscow City telephone
directory is unavailable, and the 1960 directory does not include
any numbers in the V-3-65- series; however it is a plausible
Moscow telephone number. A number similar to V-3-65-93 was
given by an employee of Radio Moscow to one CIA source as
his office number, and to another source as his home number.
The North American Service of Radio Moscow came on the air about 7:00
p.m. E. S. T. on October 25, 1959, broadcasting until about midnight. The
programming was repeated approximately every three and one half hours. I
had a short wave radio in 1959, and as someone taken in by Communist
propaganda, was a nightly listener to Radio Moscow. I distinctly remember
hearing an interview with a defector from Texas (Marguerite Oswald moved
to Fort Worth, Texas in July 1956) who complained about the economic
conditions there. At the time I thought to myself, "They must be dirt poor in
his area of Texas for him to expect a higher standard of living in the
USSR." It must have been Oswald.

Finally a page of Oswald’s address book contains Russian grammatical
rules. Why did Oswald go to the trouble of crossing out certain letters to the
extent that he did? What is encoded here? What the purpose of the vertical
cross-outs? Were these letters the key to the cipher?

The MVD was the Secret police after Lavrenty Beria merged the MGB into
the MVD in March 1953. Within a year Beria's downfall caused the MVD to
be split up again; after that, the MVD retained its "internal security" (police)
functions, while the new KGB took on "state security" (secret police)
functions. Nikita Khrushchev called for the dismissal of the All-Union MVD.
The Ministry ceased to exist in January 1960. Oswald entered the Soviet
Union in October 1959.
