This is a very important piece of evidence that rarely gets mentioned.
Baker first saw Oswald, not in the lunch room, but entering the anteroom to the lunch room from the other side, the office side. There was a swinging door there that Oswald went through. Baker saw the movement of that door. The door to the lunch room itself was propped open. It was one of those spring doors which, when opened fully, would lock. So, everything was close at hand, and it was very swift. And of course, Baker responded by going through the door to the anteroom on his side, and then entering the lunch room and calling to Oswald and having his encounter with him. But, the point is that if Oswald had come down from the 6th floor, which would have meant using the same stairs that Baker used, then he would not have used the door on the other side of the anteroom. He would have used the same door that Baker looked through (it had a glass pane) and entered the lunch room. The fact that Oswald used the door on the other side proves that he came from that direction. He went UP the one flight of stairs that were located in the southeast corner of the building and walked across the office area to get to the lunch room.
And those stairs were located right next to the doorway.
So, there were two doors in front. Oswald went from the doorway, through the first door, the glass door, then around the partition to the stairwell, which took him up to the 2nd floor.
This is very solid, and it proves several things. It proves that Oswald was not in the lunch room during the motorcade because if he was in the lunch room during the motorcade, he would not have been just getting to it. Baker saw Oswald just getting to the lunch room. So, that means he wasn't there a minute before. So, the people who claim that Oswald was in the lunch room all the while, that he skipped the motorcade in order to be in the lunch room alone, are completely and totally full of it. And it proves that Oswald did not come down from the 6th floor because if he had come down from the 6th floor, the door that was swinging would have been the door that Baker was looking through. And it proves that Oswald did not have a Coke when Baker saw him because if Oswald was just arriving at the lunch room, just reaching it, just going through the door, then obviously, he didn't get a Coke yet. You have to enter the room before you can get a Coke, and he hadn't entered the room. So, Oswald did NOT have a Coke when Baker saw him. Oswald got his Coke AFTER Baker and Truly went on their merry way.
This also puts the kabosh on Carolyn Arnold's 1978 revised statement in which she claimed, after 5000+ days, that what she really saw was Oswald sitting in the lunch room eating at 12:25. That is impossible because Oswald ate in the 1st floor lunch room at the start of the lunch break, and he certainly didn't eat two lunches that day. And, if he was sitting in the lunch room eating at 12:25, then why at 12:31.5 would he be re-entering the lunch room from the office side? If you're tempted to say that he left and came back, don't bother because you have no grounds to say it. You can't just pull things from out your ass and plop them down. This is NOT Imagination Day at Kindergarten. You don't have a broad license to speculate. Even speculations have to be tied to evidence. By all indications, Oswald was just arriving at the lunch room when Baker first saw him. That plainly stands, and Occam and his razor are telling you to shut the pluck up about anything else.
So, why didn't anybody hear Oswald come bounding down the stairs from the 6th floor? Because he didn't come bounding down the stairs from the 6th floor. Why wasn't he out of breath when Baker saw him? Because he walked at a slow, relaxed pace from the doorway to the 2nd floor lunch room. And that means that he had to leave the doorway pretty darn early in order to beat the running Baker to the lunch room. And that means you Prayermanites are shit out of luck too.
