is "JT135PCS"the number of that teletype machine? There was a rush toward the hall. The wire men were off again. Peter Geilich, a Parkland administrative assistant, leaped aside to avoid being trampled. They reminded Geilich of movie reporters rushing out to grab the nearest telephones. Unluckily for them, it wasn't that pat. The nearest phones were useless. All outgoing lines had been snared by Bales; Smith and Bell battled the ensnarled switchboard in vain while a woman outfoxed both. Virginia Payette, a former reporter who had married the local UPI manager, dropped a dime in a second-floor pay phone. At 1:35 UPI bells chimed on teletype machines around the world: FLASH PRESIDENT KENNEDY DEAD JT135PCS

I don't know what JT means, possibly the location of the teletype, but 135P means 1:35pm and CS is probably Central Standard, the Dallas time zone.
