' — Gallagher Exhibit No. 1 




March 18, 1964 

By Courier Service 

Honorable J, Lee Rankin 
General Counsel 
The President *s Commission 
200 Maryland Avenue, Northeast 
Washington, D. C« 20002 

Dear Mr. Rankin: 

During the course of discussion of neutron 
activation analyses between Mr, Melvin Eisenberg of your 
staff and Special Agent John F. Gallagher of this Bureau 
on March 16, 1964, Mr. Eisenberg requested the following 

1* What are some items in common usage which 

contain barium? Some items that may include 
barium are: grease, ceramics, glass, paint, 
printing ink, paper, rubber, plastics, 
leather, cloth, pyrotechnics, oilcloth and 
linoleum, storage batteries, matches and 

, 2. What are some items in common usage which 
contain antimony? Some items that may 
include antimony are: matches, type metal, 
lead alloys, paints and lacquers, pigments 
for oil and water colors, flameproof 
textiles, storage batteries, pyrotechnics, 
rubber, pharmaceutical preparations and 

3. What are some items in common usage which 
contain both barium and antimony? Barium 
and antimony may be found in the following 
items: printed paper and cloth, paint, 
storage batteries, rubber and matches, 
pyrotechnics and possibly other items. 

Gallagher Exhibit No. 1 

Honorable J. Lee Rankin 

4* Would neutron activation analyses show if 
a bullet passed through the hole in the 
front of President Kennedy *s shirt near 
the collar button area and also if a 
bullet passed through the material of his 
tie? Neutron activation is a sensitive 
analytical technique to determine elements 
present in a substance. During the course 
of the spectrographic examinations previously 
conducted of the fabric surrounding the 
hole in the front of the shirt, including 
the tie, no copper was found in excess of 
that present elsewhere in undamaged areas 
of the shirt and tie. Therefore, no copper 
was found which could be attributed to 
projectile fragments. 

It Is not felt that the increased sensitivity 
of neutron activation analyses would contribute substantially 
to the understanding of the origin of this hole and frayed 

Sincerely yours,

Mrs. EVA L. GRANT, 3 92 9 Rawlins Street (Apartment I), 
Dallas, Texas, x*as interviewed at her apartment in the presence of PAULINE HALL, a close personal friend of Mrs. GRANT. Mrs. GRANT 
advised that she is the sister of JACK LEON RUBY. ^ 

Mrs. GRANT advised that she has been very upset over the ^ j 
events which have occurred in Dallas, Texas, be^jinnins Friday, ,^s 
November 22, 1963, with the assassination of President KENNEDY. She'^ ''• ^' 
informed that on Tuesday morning, November 19, 1963, she and her '^ ^^ .j 
brother saw a picture in the local Dallas paper concerning President T\i , T' 
KENNEDY and his young son at the President's desk. She said that ^^ ^^v '- 
JACK RUBY called the picture to her attention and in very glov/ing «^ ^ r 
terms was very enthusiastic about the President, He told her, for ^-.S 
example, that "That man doesn't act like a President. He acts just C -' ' "- 
like a normal everyday man with a family." She stated that on . ^'- > 
November 22, 1963, a Friday morning, her telephone rang at her l^ T- 
apartment, and it was her brother, JACK RUBY, calling. RUBY asked /^ 
her if she saw the advertisement in the morning paper v/hich was a ^? .^/ 
full-page ad addressed to "Mr. Kennedy" by BERNARD V/EISMANN. She o 
said that JACK RUBY was very upset about this article and, f 

undoubtedly it bothered him a great deal, not only on that day but ^^ ^- 
for the next two or three days. He called V/£I£>tANN an "SOB" and ^ 
also said that the newspaper was completely wrong in accepting the ,^ 
ad. She advised that he told her he had called the "Times Herald" 
newspaper in Dallas, and they had advised him that they had turned 
down and refused to accept the same advertisement. He was very 
commending in his statement regarding that paper refusing the 

Mrs. GRANT stated that he was most upset that the ad v/as 
addressed to Mr, KENNEDY and thought it should have been addresse-d 
to the Honorable President if it had to be in the paper. She 
stated that he came to her apartment that day and had the ad fros ! 
his own paper and took the ad from her paper. She said she 
understood both copies of this ad were found in RUBY's automobile 
after his arrest by the Dallas Police Officers. She stated that 
ZkZlL P.TTEY told her that he had contacted the paper which ran the 
advertisement and asked them "^Vhere in the hell do you get off

"taking an ad like that? Are you money hungry?"/ She said 
that RUBY felt it was a rotten thing for any person to question 
the way the President was running this country. She said that 
RUDY made a statement regarding the advertisement and regarding 
WEISM.\NN, whose name appeared a-c the bottom of the ad, that "If 
that guy is a Jew they ought to v/hack the hell out of him." By 
that, she advised since RUBY is a Jew he felt that this reflected 
against the Jewish race. 

She advised that RUBY told her that he went to the 
Post Office in downtown Dallas and looked at the box, which box 
number appears in the advertisement. Ke told her that the box 
was full of mail. According to Mrs. GRANT, after he told her 
this, he made the statement, "I bet V/eismann is a Commtinist", 
or words to that effect, 

Mrs. GRANT advised that she personally "had a crush 
on President Kennedy" . She stated that she and her brother 
both had a great admiration for President KENNEDY and felt he 
was a wonderful President. She said that JACK RUBY is not 
greatly interested in political affairs as a rule, but he would 
fuss at her if she did not pay, her poll tax, since he felt it 
was a patriotic thing to do. (She informed that early Thursday 
morning, November 21, 1963, JACK RUBY, as was his custom, 
placed advertisements in both Dallas papers concerning the 
entertainment to be offered at the Carousel and Vegas Night 
Clubs, Dallas, Texas, which clubs he has an interest in.^ She 
advised that after President KENNEDY was assassinated on 
November 22, I963, he called the newspapers to change the 
advertisements to show that the clubs would be closed J'riday, 
Saturday, and Sxonday. November 22, 23, and 24, 1963y (She said 
that DON SAFFERN (PHJ , a newspaper reporter for the Dallas 
"Tices Herald", called him and wanted to kriow if he was sure

3 . 

he was not going to qserate those clubs on any of those three 
days. He pointed out that some of the other clubs apparently 
were not going to be closed for even one night. \Vhen RUBY 
heard that the other clubs were not going to be closed, he 
became quite upset and asked DON how anyone v/ith any kind of 
conscience could dance and have a good time after the President 
had been killed. He ended up by telling DON that he did_not 
care what anyone ^else did, that he was going to close for '' - '■ 
those three daysJ 

(Mrs. GRjVNT displayed a page from the Dallas "Morning 
News", dated Saturday, November 23, 1963, in Section 1, 
Page 19, containing a one-column ad, approximately four inches 
in length, stating tlae Carousel Club on Main Street, Dallas, 
would be closed "Friday, Saturday, and Sunday".; 

(^Mrs. GRANT recalled that on the day of the 
President's assassination, November 22, 1963, JACK RUBY 
telephoned her at least eight times and made three personal 
visits to her apartment.) She said that he was most upset over 
the assassination of the President and described OSWALD as a 
"creep" and said, "He has no class." She said that the phrase 
"He has no class" was a phrase which RUBY used to indicate his 
complete dislike for a person, 

Mrs. GRANT informed that her father passed away 
several years ago. She said that on Friday when JACK RUBY 
was in her ap)artment they had discussed both the death of 
her father and the assassination of President KENNEDY. She 
advised both she and her brother, JACK, stated that they were 
more upset over the "assassination of President KENNEDY than 
they were over the death of their own father. She pointed 

Grant Exhibit 1 

Grant Exhibit No. 1 — Continued 


DL 44-1639 


out that whon their father died, JACK RUBY seemed v/ell 
composed and displayed very little outward emotion. She 
said, however, that on Friday afternoon, November 22, 1963, 
following the President's assassination, he was terribly 
upset. She also pointed out that on Saturday morning, when 
JACK kJBY was at her apartment, he cried very noticeably 
about the President's assassination. fShe stated that he 
discussed sending flowers to the place near the spot where 
the President was assassinated, and she feels sure that he 
did have flowers delivered to that spoty 

(^Mrs. GRiVNT informed that JACK RUBY was in her "N, 
apartment on November 22, 1963, from approximately 5:30 PM 
until approximately 7:15 PM, and then he dressed and went ^^-^ — 
to the synagogue for prayer.") 

She stated that on Saturday morning he told her 
that he "bummed around with" a person whose first name is 
LARRY, an employee of the Carousel Club, all<. night Friday 
night. On Saturday morning he and LARRY drove out to a 
point on the North Central Expressway in Dallas, Texas, 
where there is a large billboard sign to the effect "Impeach 
Earl V/arren" or some similar ph:.'aseology. He advised that 
he had shown LAPvRY how to take the picture, and LAPv.RY had 
taken the picture of this sign. In connection with this 
sign, she stated that it has been situated there for some 
period of time, and that it has constantly bothered and 
annoyed RUBY. She stated that he did not like the sign 
and on numerous occasions had mentioned the sign to her. 

Mrs. GRANT informed that on Saturday, November 23, 
1963, RUBY called STANLEY KAUFMAN, a Dallas attorney, and 

Eva Grant Exhibit 1 
Grant Exhibit Xo. 1 — Continued 


DL 44-1639 



discussed with KAUFMAN the sign and the advertisement in 
the newspaper, as well as the assassination of President 
KENNEDY by OSWALD. In the conversation with KAUFMAN, he 
told KAUFMAN that "I don't know v;hy I want to connect that 
sign and the mail box with Oswald, but I do." Also in the 
course of conversation, he explained to KAUFMAN that he 
had taken a picture of the sign and had gone and physically 
observed the mail box which was listed in the advertisement 
mentioned above. 

Mrs. GRANT related that after RUBY made the 
telephone call to Attorney STANLEY KAUFK\N, he left her 
apartment and did not return thereto until approximately 
4:00 PM, Saturday, November 23, I963. She advised he 
remained at her apartment from about 4:00 PM to around 
8:00 PM, November 23, 1963, when he again left in his 
automobile. She advised she did not hear from P.UBY again 
until approximately 10:20 PM, at which time she received 
a telephone call from RUBY, stating that among other tjiings 
he was going to Radio Station KLIF in Dallas, Texas. (She 
stated that from remarks made by RUBY during the 10:20 PM 
telephone conversation that she gained the impression RUBY 
had been at his residence, 223 S. Ewing (Apartment 207), 
Dallas, Texas, since a short time after leaving her place 
around 8:00 PM the same date^ 

/At 11:30 PM, that same night, he called and told 
her he had been at Radio Station KLIF where he had talked 
with HENRY WADE, District Attorney, Dallas County, Texas, 
and RUSS KNIGHT, of Radio Station KLIF, Dallas, Texas.') 

(Mrs. GRANT stated that she next heard from her 
brother, JACK RUBY, about 12:40 AM, Sunday, November 24, I963

at which time he called her by telephone .") (She sai4 she 
ijained the impression that he was at his-^esidenco.J She 
volunteered this was the last time that she heard from her 
brother, JACK RUBY, prior to contacting him at the City Jail, 
Dallas, Sunday afternoon, November 24, 1963, following the 
shooting of OSWALD. On this last call, RUDY was worried about 
her, GRANT'S, health and told her "to go to bed", 

Mrs. GRANT stated that although her brother has 
used her address, 392 9 Rawlins Street, Dallas, for mailing 
purposes, he has never lived there. 

Mrs. GRANT said, to the best of her knov.-ledge, JACK 
RUBY has never been a "joiner" of organizations and does not 
belong to any group or organization of any kind and has no 
particular political philosophy. She described him as an 
"American" and a great admirer of President KENNEDY. She 
further advised she has never seen or heard anything which 
might indicate her brother, JACK RUBY, is connected or 
affiliated in any way \\fith any Communist or Cuban organization, 
She \>fas very emphatic in stating that she and JACK RUBY are 
very strongly opposed to any Communist organization or any 
group which they felt might be backed by Communists. 

Mrs. GRANT further stated that she has heard through 
a television or news media that an individual made a remark 
to the effect that OSWALD had been seen in the night club 
operated by JACK RUBY. She stated in most emphatic terms 
that she is absolutely positive that RUBY has never had any 
connection with OSWALD in any way. She admitted that she did 
not know every individual her brother knew, but she is still 
certain he did not know OSWALD. 

Mrs, GR/\NT said she was permitted to visit her 
brother, JACK RUBY, at the City Jail, Dallas, Texas, on the

afternoon of Sunday, November 24, 1963; however, she did not 
en/^age hiiu in any conversation as to why he shot OSWALD, nor 
did RUBY volunteer any information to her in this regard.

Detective L. C. GRAVES, 7811 Maxwell Avenue, 
Dallas, advised about 11:15 a.m., November 24, 1963, * 
L£E HARVEY OSWALD was taken from the Homicide and Robbery 
Bureau, Dallas Police Department, located on the third 
floor of the City Hall Building, for the purpose of 
transporting him to the Dallas County Jail. OSWALD was 
handcuffed and was thereafter handcuffed to the left 
hand of Detective J. R. LEAVELLE, Homicide and Robbery 
Bureau. GRAVES stated that he had hold of the left arm 
of OSWALD. He stated that Captain J. W. FRITZ, Homicide 
and Robbery Bureau, and Lieutenant R. E. SWAIN, Burglary 
and Theft Bureau, proceeded in front of them, and L. D. 
MONTGOMERY, Homicide and Robbery Bureau brought up the 
rear. All of the above mentioned individuals proceeded 
from the third floor by way of the jail elevator to the 
jail office located in the basement of the City Hall 
Building. Homli:;ide and Robbery detectives E. R. BECK and 
C. N. DHOR^TSr had previously departed for the purpose 
of getting the transportation cars into position. 

Detective GRAVES and LEAVELLE after arriving 
in the jail office hesitated at the door leading from the 
jail office into the outside corridor until they obtained 
an all-clear signal from Captain FRITZ who had proceeded 
into the corridor ahead of them. GRAVES stated that 
thereafter, he and LEAVELLE, with OSWALD between them as 
previously described, proceeded from the jail office into 
the corridor leading out into the underground parking area. 
It was noted in the corridor that uniform officers were 
lined \p along the wall, and that news media were gathered 
on the auto ramp to the left and front of GRAVES and the 
escorting officers. The car in which OSWALD was to be 
transported was on the ramp and was backing up to the 
position where OSWALD could get in. Captain FRITZ was 
in the lead and was stopped at the edge of the ramp 
waiting to get into the front seat of the car. GRAVES 
and LEAVELLE stopped momentarily for the car to back up. 
When the bumper of the car got even with the right side 
of LEAVELLE, JACK RUBY darted from the crowd of news 
media about six feet away and had gun in hand. RUBY shot 
OSWALD at a distance of approximately fifteen Inches away.

The New York Times, Friday, November 29, 1963 


By John Herbers 

Special to The New York Times 

Dallas, Nov. 23 — A gunsmith from Irving, Tex., said today he mounted a telescopic 
sight on a gun for a man named Oswald about a month ago. 

The gunsmith. Dial D. Ryder, said he could not remember what the gun looked 
like, nor could he remember the customer. 

Mr. Ryder found a receipt showing that he had mounted and adjusted a sight on 
a gun for a customer named Oswald. There was no date on the receipt, he said, but 
the work was done about a month ago. The customer paid $4.50 for drilling and 
$1.50 for boresighting the weapon. 

Ordered Gun From Chicago 

Lee H. Oswald, accused assassin of President Kennedy ordered a 3.5-mm Italian 
carbine from a mail-order house in Chicago last March. It was equipped with a 
telescopic sight at the time of the assassination. 

"Many people have this kind of work done," Mr. Ryder said. He said he believed 
a close examination of the Oswald weapon would show that he had not done the work. 

The police and agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation refused to disclose 
information about another gun Oswald was supposed to have used to kill Patrolman 
J. D. Tippitt when the oflBcer stopped Oswald following the assassination. 

That weapon, a .38-caliber pistol, has been turned over to the F.B.I, with other 
evidence in the case. It was reported that Oswald bought the pistol about two months 
ago and that the police have traced the point of its purchase. 

Meanwhile, it appeared that Oswald's employment in a building along the parade 
route that President Kennedy would travel was happenstance. 

Statements by persons familiar with the circumstances indicated that Oswald 
had no way of knowing when he took the job at the Texas School Book Depository 
that it would provide a vantage point for assassinating the President.

Oswald returned to Dallas early in October after a mysterious trip to Mexico 
and began looking for work, according to persons who saw him daily at that time. 

It had been announced here ono Sept. 28 that President Kennedy would visit 
Dallas, but no parade route was disclosed. The parade route was not decided on 
until shortly before the President's arrival and it was not published until the morning 
of his death. 

While Oswald was looking for work his Russian-born wife and child lived with 
Mrs. Michael R. Paine, a friend, in Irving, a small town near Dallas. 

Wesley Randle, a teen-age neighbor of Mrs. Paine, said he heard that Oswald was 
looking for a job and told Mrs. Paine that he knew of one at the Texas School Book 

Mrs. Paine called about the job and on Oct. 14 Oswald went in and made appli- 
cation. He was accepted and started work the next day, Oct. 15, as a stock clerk at 
$1.25 an hour. 

Mrs. Paine said when Oswald got the job he had just received his last unemploy- 
ment check and his wife was expecting the arrival of their second child. 

He telephoned from Dallas, Mrs. Paine said, and announced "Hooray, I've got 
a job." 

Mrs. Paine said that the siwrts shop where Mr. Ryder, the gunsmith, works is 
about three miles from her home. She did not recall Oswald's making a trip to the 

Mrs. Paine said today that although Oswald was "antireliglous." his wife Marina 
had had their daughter, June Lee, baptized when she was about 1 year old. 

Mrs. Paine said she thought this was done at tlie St. Seraphin Eastern Orthodox 
Church in Dallas. The other Oswald daughter is only a month old and has not been 
baptized yet, Mrs. Paine said. 

Mrs. Oswald and her daughters were still kept from the public by the Secret 
Service today. Mrs. Paine sent her a message through the police that Russian- 
speaking women from Texas, New Jersey, Kansas and Ohio had been trying to reach 
her to offer to take her and her daughters into their homes. Mrs. Oswald speaks no

basic training at Koesler Field, Biloxi, Mississippi, then went to 
aircraft mechanic school at Seymour Johnson Air Base at Goldsboro, 
Korth Carolina. After he finisJiO'd this school, he was sent to 
school at Farningdale, New York, at the factory where the P-47 
airplanes were manufactured. Following this school, he went back to 
Goldsboro, North Carolina, for a short time. He was subsequently 
assigned to Hunter and Drew Air Fields at Savannah, Georgia; 
Blumenthr.l Field, Wilmington, North Carolina, and lIcDill Field,, Florida. He was honorably discharged from the service in 
1946 as a private first class. He said no disciplinary action was 
taken against him while he was in the military service. He worked 
around Chicago helping his brother EARL in a mail order business 
until he moved to Dallas, Texas, in June, 1947. His sister, EVA GRANT' 
was living in Dallas. He and EVA opened a nightclub known as the 
Singapore Club at 1717 S. Ervay and he worked there. 

Late in 1947, he returned to Chicago for a few weeks but 
his sister, EVA GRANT, called for him to come back to Dallas to 
help her so he returned. They changed the name of the Singapore Club 
to the Silver Spur and he resumed working there. He lived iri'^a rooa 
at 1719-^ S. Ervay while working at the Silver Spur, In 1952, 'he toot 
over the Bob Wills Ranch House Club, located at Corinth and 
Industrial Streets, and operated both places for a short time, but 
soon v/ent broke and lost both clubs. LIARTY GII.IPLE, v/ho is now dead, 
and WILLIE EPSTEIN, who now lives in is(?w York City and with his father- 
operates a millinery manufacturing shop, assumed some of the debts 
and took over the Silver Spur. He v/ent back to Chicago but did not 
like living there so after a month or two he decided to return to 
Dallas because he owed a lot of money to people in Dallas and v/as 
depressed about this and wanted to return to Dallas and make some 
money and pay off his debts. 

After returning to Dallas, he took the Silver Spur Club 
back from GIIIPLE and EPSTEIN ^s -by. that tino they were happy to get 
rid of it. In about 1953, he was able to interest JOE BONIS and IRVING 
ALXANAN into taking over the Vegas Club with him, They operated that 
club for a while, but RUBY and ALKANAN had some disagreements over

JACK RUBY was advised that he did not have to make

not complete that year of school. He presently resides at ^ ^f^ /

JACK LEON RUBY, He has lived in Dallas since 19^7, living /^ \ 

most of the time in Chicago, Illinois, before that time. ^ j 

On Friday, November 22, 1963^ after he heard that ^j ^'^- 
President KENNEDY had been assassinated, he placed signs • ^ o 
on the doors of both of his clubs, that because of the T ^ 
death of the President, the clubs would be closed. He had ^ ^ 
not planned on opening them again until after the President's s^ 
funeral, because he was ashamed that anyone would v;ant to • , ). , 
participate in dancing or any entertainment after the assassi- V 
nation. On Friday night, he went to his church. Congregation 
Shearith Israel Synagogue, for prayer, and remembered that 
Rabbi SILVERMAN told those present that this tragic event 
should make us all better people. He later went to a deli- 
catessen and had some sandwiches made up, and drove dovmtovm 
and called Detective SIMS at the Homicide and Robbery Bureau 
at the Police Department, to see if anyone there v;anted the 
sandwiches. Mr. SIMS told him they had all eaten, and the 
sandwiches were not needed. RUBY explained that he has 
operated night clubs in Dallas since 19^7, and during that 
time has become personally acquainted with many members of ■ ' 
the Dallas Police Department. The officers 'have been very 
fair with him, and not one has ever put his hand out for even 
one dime. He knew that the police officers were working 
very hard, and he Just wanted to do something for them, so 
he thought he could help them by getting them some food. 
After he talked with Detective SIMS, he decided to call 
Radio Station KLIP In Dallas, to see If anyone there wanted

the sandwiches. He could not get anyone to ansv/er the 
phone, so he walked over to the Police Department to 
find someone that could give him the phone number in the 
room where the broadcasts were being made at KLIF. VH^ile 
in a hallway at the Police Department, he saw the Officers 
escorting OSWALD, the man who killed President KEITI-IEDY, down 
the hall to an assembly room. He had never seen OSV/ALD be- 
fore, and did not know him. He noticed that OSV/ALD had a 
black eye, and his face was scratched, and heard OSV/ALD 
r.;v,*nble something as he passed by him. OSWALD v;as in the 
assembly room for a few moments, then was brought back dovm 
the hall and taken upstairs. He later returned home, v;here 
he watched television broadcasts about President KENNEDY 
and the assassination, and read the newspaper articles about 
it. The following morning, he drove down to the spot where 
President KENNEDY was killed, and spent about an hour there, 
talking for some time with Police Officer CHANEY, who v/as on 
duty there. After that, he returned home where he read nev;s- 
papers and watched television. Vlhen he was alone, he cried 
a great deal, because President KENNEDY was his idol, and 
he was grieved that this nut OSWALD did a thing that brought 
such grief to the people of Dallas and people all over the 
world . 

On Saturday night, November 23, 1963, he called a 
friend, TOM 0' GRADY, who■v^^as formerly a member of the Dallas 
Police Department, and talked with him about President KENNEDY'S 
death, but he did not discuss with 0' GRADY anything about 
shooting OSWALD, because such 'a thought' had not occurred 
to hira at that time. 

RUBY declined to give a detailed account of his 
activities, or any other names of persons he had been in 
contact with during the past few days. 

He was also upset over an advertisement by one 
BERNARD V/EISSMAN in the Dallas Morning News newspaper of 
November 22, I963, criticizing President KENNEDY. RUBY 
said he was proud of the fact that he v;as a Jew, and was 
ashamed that anyone named WEISSMAN would criticize the 

RUBY said that many grievances built up, apparently, 
until he reached the point of insanity. He read in the nev;s- 
paper about OSWALD having a trial, and he thought that President 
KENNEDY'S wife would have to return to Dallas for the trial 

Hall (C. Ray) Exhibit No. 2 — Continued 


DL 44-1639 

and he did not think she should have to undergo that ordeal. 
He recalled that not too long ago an officer of the Dallas 
Police Department was killed by a hotel man, and the hotel 
man beat the deal and was never even sentenced for the 
killing. Because of this, he was afraid that if OSV/ALD 
v;ere tried in court, he might be turned loose. As he v/alked 
do;\'n the stree'bs, he noticed that people v;ere going about 
their regular activities, and at night they were in clubs 
dancing and having a good time, apparently not in mourning 
or grieving continuously as he had. He felt that the civic 
leaders of Dallas were very sincere in their sorrow, but 
v.'ere helpless to show how much they were grieving. He also 
knew that the officers of the Dallas Police Department were 
he:. less to do anything to OSWALD for killing President 
KENI\EDY. He said he saw Attorney General BOBBY KENNEDY on 
television, and thought how much he loved his brother, the 
President, and how much BOBBY KENNEDY would like to do 
something to OSWALD, but couldn't do anything to OSWALD. 
He read newspaper articles about the President's children, 
and he thought of the sorrow that had been brought to them. 
He said he was proud of the way the City of Dallas had 
handled racial problems, and he thought it was the greatest 
city in the world, so he wanted to be something, better than 
anyone else. 

RUBY said he thought about these things, and had 
become very emotional. On Sunday morning, November 24, 
1963, he left his apartment at about 10:00 a.m. and drove 
his car do;^mtown to a parking lot across the street north 
of the Western Union Office, at the corner of Main Street 
and North Central Expressway. Before he left home, he put 
his revolver in his right coat pocket. He had bought this 
revolver, a Smith and Wesson .38 special caliber hammerless 
revolver, two or three years ago, at Ray's Hardv/are on Single- 
ton Avenue, in Dallas, Texas. After parking his car, he 
V7ent to the Western Union Office, and sent a $25.00 money 
order to an employee, KAREN BENNETT, at Ft. V/orth, Texas, 
so that she could go by the Western Union Office there and 
pick the money up, as she had requested nim to do. KAREN 
BENNETT lives In Ft. Worth. 

, Sometime after sending the telegram, he entered 
the basecient of the building where the Police Department 
in Dallas is located, entering from the Main Street side. 
RUBY said he did not wish to say how he got into the 


Hall (C. Ray) Exhibit No. 2 — Continued 


DL 44-1639 

basement,, or at what time he entered. He did say that no 
one helped him in any v;ay to enter the basement of the 
building, and he did not use any press badge or help 
anyone move In camera or press equipment Into the building 
to gain entrance. When OSV/ALD was brought out through 
the door to the basement, RUBY said he was standing among 
the press representatives. When OSWALD passed near him, 
RUBY pulled his revolver from his pocket, placed the re- 
volver next to OSWALD, and fired one shot at OSWALD. RUBY 
was immediately grabbed by the Police Officers and taken 
into custody. 

RUBY said he had not planned to do this v/hen 
he went into the basement, but declined to say v/hy he 
brought his revolver with him when he came downtovm. He 
also declined to give any reason for shooting OSV/ALD, . 
except to say that it was Just a moment of insanity that 
overcame his sane reasoning when he saw OSWALD. 

RUBY said that baslcally,he was a humanitarian, 
and was not a Joiner of organizations. He belongs to no 
clubs, or groups of any kind, and is not a member of any 
political group. He has no particular political philosophy, 
and when he votes, he votes for the man that he thinks will 
do the best Job. He said he had not talked with anyone 
about shooting OSWALD, he made no telephone calls, or 
told anyone directly or indirectly that he intended to 
shoot OSWALD, and he made no plans to shoot OSWALD. He 
said that if OSWALD had confessed to shooting President 
KENNEDY, he probably would never have shot 0SV;ALD, because' 
he would have felt that OSWALD would have been convicted in 
court, but since OSWALD had not confessed to the assassination, 
he v/as afraid OSWALD might be turned loose. He said that 
hundreds of people had probably thought about v;anting to 
kill OSWALD, but he knew that no one would do anything about • 
it. Then, after he had shot OSV/ALD, he wondered v;hether he 
had not been a sucker, even though he had done what many 
people had probably wanted to do. He said he was not in- 
volved in any conspiracy with anyone, no one asked him or 
suggested to him that he shoot OSV/ALD, and no one gave him a 
shot in the arm or anything to give him courage to do this. 
It was simply a compulsive act. 

RUBY described himself as a white male, born March 
25, I91I/ at Chicago, Illinois. He is five feet, nine inches

JACK L. RUBY was interviewed in an interview room 
located on floor 5-M of the Dallas County Jail, Dallas, Texas. 
His attorneys, MELVIN BELLI, San Francisco, California; 
JOE TONAHILL, Jasper, Texas; SAM BRODY, Los Angeles, California, 
and WILLIAM CHOULOS, San Francisco, California, were present. 
The interview commenced at 1:50 PM and continued until 3:30 PM, 
when RUBY went to the rest room. It was resumed again at 3:34 PM ' 
and continued until 5:00 PM. ' 

JACK L. RUBY was advised by SA C. RAY HALL that he did ix^ ^ 
not have to make any statement. He was reminded that his attorneys x '-i- 
were present, and that any statements he made in answers to y)'>'^ 
questions could be used against him in a court of law. ~ '^ C" 

JACK L. RUBY then furnished the following information: 

On the night of Wednesday, November 20, 1953, he was at '^ 
his club, the Carousel Club, in Dallas, Texas. He thinks he closed /i . 
the club at about 2:00 AM on November 21, 195 3. One of his dancers,^ ^fy 
called "LITTLE LYNN", drank some champagne before closing, and when /^ -V 
she started home she got sick and passed out at Nichols Brothers / 
parking garage near his club. He thinks this occurred after ■; ? -^ 
2:00 AM on November 21, 196 3, but it could have been after ^ r^ 
2:00 AM on November 20, 1963. He went over to see about her, 7^ 
and tried to get her to go to a hospital, but she refused to go. nA ;v\ 
He remained with her, trying to take care of her, until 4:00 AM , 
or 5:00 AM and then went home, so far as he can now recall. After , 
he got home, he went to bed and went to sleep. \r 

At about 10:30 AM or 11:00 AM on November 21, 1953, he 
received a telephone call at home from a girl named TRAMMELL, whose 
first name may be CONNIE, or something similar. He met this girl 
at the Carousel Club about ^ight months previously, and since meeting 
her she has called him on the telephone several times. The 
TRAI-^MELL girl lives in an apartment on either Gaston Avenue or • 
Live Oak Street in Dallas, When she called him on November 21, 
1953, she told him that she had to get a job an<i that she had 
an appointment with LAMAR HUNT. He asked her how she got an 
appointment with HUNT, and she told him that she called HUNT'S 
home and got his number, then just called his office and asked 
him for an appointment about a job. _ .^

Dallas, Texas 5-2S-64 



DL UU-1639 

TRAHMELL asked RUBY to come after her and give her a 
ride downtown, so he got dressed, picked her up and drove her 
downtown. RUBY had an appointment with his attorney but does 
not remember whether it was GRAHAM KOCH or STANLEY KAUFKiAN. 
Both attorneys have offices in the Mercantile Securities 
Building, Dallas, the same building in which LAMAR HUNT has his 
offices.- TRAMMELL went up to -see LAMAR HUNT and after RUBY 
completed his business with his attorney regarding some tax 
matters, he waited around the cigar stand in the lobby for a 
while for , TRAMMELL to come down, but she' did not, so he left and 
went to the Carousel Club. When he got to the club, one of his 
employees named LARRY was there, 

LARRY was a young boy whom he had seen at the State 
Fair of Texas, and he gave LARRY a job at the Carousel Club 
after the fair closed. He had asked LARRY to build a crate 
so he could ship a dog to a friend of RUBY's, AL GRUBER, who 
lives on Olympic Street in Los Angeles, California, LARRY had 
not built the crate, so he got after him for not having done 
what he had asked him to do. So far as he remembers, he stayed 
around the Carousel Club "until about 9:30 PM, when he and RALPH 
PAUL, who. owns part of the Carousel Club, went to the Egyptian 
Lounge for dinner. 

While they were eating at the Egyptian Lounge, a man 
named CONNORS, who is a salesman for the Dallas Morning News 
newspaper,, came over to the table and invited RUBY over to the 
Castaway Club located nearby. He declined the invitation because 
he did not want to go to this club as the manager had hired an 
orchestra away from RUBY that had played for RUBY for sevex^al yearji 
After- dinner , RUBY returned to the Carousel Club. During the 
evening of November 21, 1963, he did the breaks between shows, 
which were two breaks of twenty minutes each, and he used a 
roulette wheel to give away prizes to the audience. Sometime 
during the evening, he ordered someone out of the club because 
he was creating a disturbance, but he has no idea who this person 
was. He believes he- closed the Carousel Club at about 2:00 AM on 
November 22," 1953, and went home. If he went anywhere to eat 
before going home, he does not remember it. He does not now 
remember whether GEORGE SENATOR, who shares the apartment with 
RUBY, was at home when he arrived there or not, but he went 
directly to bed and went to sleep.

DL U4-1639 

On the morning of November 22, 1963, RUBY got up at 
about 9:30 AM and does not now recall .whether GEORGE SENATOR was 
in the apartment or not. He drove downtown and stopped at the 
Dallas Morning News at about 10:50 AM. He believes he stopped 
for a moment and talked to two girls employed there, GLADYS CRADDOCK 
and a girl named CONNELLY or CONNELL. He thinks he gave them a 
bottle of Larson's CRD, a food supplement for persons on a diet. 
de then went to the office of TONY ZOPPI, but TONY was not there. 
RUBY looked over a brochure there about BILL DEMAR, a master of 
ceremonies at the Carousel Club. Another employee of the news- 
paper, a Mr. PAYNE, may have been in ZOPPI 's office while RUBY 
i^as in there. 

RUBY left that office and went to Mr. JOHN NEWNAM's 
office at the newspaper to talk about RUBY's ads. RUBY was trying 
:o make a 12:00 noon deadline. Mr. CONNORS, the same person RUBY 
lad seen at- the Egyptian Lounge the previous evening, came in to 
^lEWNAM's office, and they talked for a while. NEWNAM came in, and 
^UBY completed his advertisements for his clubs. 

At about that time, people began running around, and 
lUEY heard someone say that somebody had been shot. First, he 
leard that Governor CONNALLY had been shot, then a Secret 
service Agent, and then someone said that "our beloved President 
^as been shot". RUBY then called his sister, EVA GRANT, and told 
ler about the shooting and told her he would be at her house as 
;oon as he could. He left the Dallas Morning News but does not know 
:he time when he left. He drove to the Carousel Club and told his 
employee, ANDY ARMSTRONG, to get in touch with everybody and tell 
■':hem he was closing his clubs. He then called a friend, ALICE 
IICHOLS, and she told him that Neiman-Marcus had closed their 
itore. He called AL GRUBER in Los Angeles from the Carousel Club • 
md told GRUBER he would send a dog to him soon. RUBY said he 
,:alked to GRUBER about the death of President KENNEDY but began 
i:rying and finally just told GRUBER he had to break it off and 
lung up the telephone. 

Somebody brought some merchandise to the club, but he 
.oes not remember who it was, and RUBY just told the man to take 
he merchandise back as he did not vrant aoy. He called his sister 
everal times during the afternoon and was so upset that he was 
elligerent toward his employees, ANDY and LARRY, who were at 
he Carousel Club. He remembers getting a telephone call from 
ATHY KAY; he called his business associate, RALPH PAUL, and told 
AUL that he was going to close his clubs; he called BRECK WALL 
n Galveston, and also JOE PETERSON; and he called his sister ^ 
ILEEN in Chicago, locating her at his sister MARIAN'S house.

DL im-1639 

Sometime late that afternoon, he left the Carousel 
Club and went to the Ritz Delicatessen and bought a lot of food 
and then went to the home of his sister in Dallas, EVA GRANT. He 
and his sister talked and while there, his employee, AI>IDY, called 
and told him that DON SAFRAN , of the Dallas Times .Herald, had 
called and wanted to get in touch with him. RUBY then called 
SAFRAN, who told RUBY that the Cabana and the Century Room were 
going to close and he did not know what ABE and BARNEY WEINSTEIN 
were going to do. _, RUBY said he told SAFRAN that he had already 
closed, without aSking what the other club owners were doing. 
SAFR.\N then asked RUBY about whether he would be open the next 
night, and RUBY said he did not know but would call him back. 
In a few minutes RUBY called SAFRAN back and told him he was 
going to be closed Saturday and Sunday nights, in addition to 
Friday night. 

At no time did RUBY go to Parkland Hospital on 
November 22, 1963. At about 7:00 PM or 8:00 PM, he left his 
sister's home and drove to his apartment to get dressed to go 
to Congregation Shearith Israel Synagogue, arriving there at 
about 10:00 PM or 10:30 PM. Before he left his apartment, he 
called Dr. COLEMAN JACOBSON to determine when the services began 
at his Synagogue. Following services, refreshments were served, 
but he did not feel like visiting with anyone. He stayed there 
for a short time, then drove toward downtown. He passed the Club 
BaliHai, noticing that it was open, and then drove by the Gay Life 
Club and saw that it was closed. He then drove on to Phil's 
Delicatessen and went in and talked to the owner, PHIL MILLER, 
He had read in the newspaper, or heard over the radio, that the 
police officers in the Homicide Bureau would be working overtime 
that night, so he ordered ten sandwiches and decided he would 
take them something to eat. Afrer he ordered the sandwiches, he 
called the Police Department Homicide Bureau and talked to 
Detective SIMS, telling him he was getting some sandwiches and 
would bring them "down 'for themi SIMS told 'him- they were'about 
th: ough'and -were -winding up things there and did -not want any- 
thing to eat. After SIMS told him that ^ -he decided he would 
take'the sandwiches to the employees at KLIF Radio Station, 

He -explained that he has -known -GORDON MC LENDON, owner 
of the radio -station, for a number of years, and he also knows 
■RUSS KNIGHT, a disk jockey at the station. The employees at the 

Lf? ?33

radio station have been good about giving him free plugs when 
he was trying to get started with his clubs, and he just wanted 
to do something for them because he knew they would be working 
late. He called GORDON MC LENDON's home, from Phil's Delicatessen, 
in order to get a number at the radio station so he could talk to 
the men on duty there. The daughter gave him a number, and he 
told her he was going to take some sandwiches to the radio 
station, but the daughter told him her mother had already sent 
some food up there. RUBY called the number he had gotten, but 
it was a wrong number. 

He picked up his sandwiches and discovered they had made 
only eight, when he ordered ten. He drank a soft drink, then left 
with his sandwiches and drove downtown, driving up Commerce Street 
and parking across from the City Hall. He decided to go to the 
Police Department to try to locate some newsmen from KLIF in 
order to obtain the unlisted phone number for the radio station. 
He went to the third ^loor of the Police Department, where the 
newsmen were gathered. As he got off the elevator, a policeman, 
who was not known to RUBY, asked him where he was going, or whom 
he wanted to see, RUBY told him he was looking for JOE DELONG, 
of KLIF, and the officer let him go on inside. He looked around 
for a while, without. seeing anyone from KLIF, and asked some 
unknown police officer to have JOE DELONG paged over the loud- 
speaker. DELONG did not answer the page, but while he was waiting 
he saw Captain FRITZ, of the Police Department, come out of his 
office with a person, OSWALD. RUBY heard a reporter tell FRITZ 
that this was not a good place, so FRITZ went back inside his 
office with OSWALD. In a minute, RUBY heard some newsmen say 
something about the basement, so he went down there to an 
assembly room where some newsmen were. 

When he saw OSWALD here, this was the first time that 
he had ever seen him. He had never heard the name of LEE HARVEY 
OSWALD before OSWALD'S arrest on November 22, 1963, by the Dallas 
Police Department. Any rumors that OSWALD was ever at any of 
RUBY'S clubs are wrong because RUBY had never seen LEE HARVEY 
OSWALD at any place before he saw him with Captain FRITZ at the 
Dallas Police Department the night of November 22, 1963. Any 
rumors that OSWALD was at the Carousel Club are absolutely untrue. 
RUBY has since heard reports that his master of ceremonies at the 
Carousel Club, BILL DEMAR, has reported that OSWALD was at the 
Carousel Club one night before President KENNEDY was assassinated. 

Hall (C. Ray) Exhibit No. 3 — Continued 


DL »+»l-1639 

RUBY said that this is absolutely false, because OSWALD was never 
there. RUBY has heard that ED SULLIVAN got in touch with BILL 
DEMAR and wanted DEMAR on SULLIVAN'S television program, but 
SULLIVAN did not believe DEMAR' s story and would not use him. 
RUBY further advised that, newspaper reports that RUBY and OSWALD 
were seen together in Waco, Texas, are complete falsehoods because 
he was never with OSWALD anywhere. Reports that OSWALD was going 
to ruby's apartment after President KENNEDY'S death are abso- 
lutely false, because OSWALD did not know RUBY, RUBY has never 
had any previous connection with OSWALD, and OSWALD could not 
have been going to RUBY's apartment «■ RUBY said that his employee, 
ANDY ARMSTRONG, knows more about RUBY's club and RUBY's morals 
than anyone else, and ANDY can tell anyone that OSWALD was never 
in the Carousel Club. 

When RUBY got to the assembly room, he went to the 
back of the room and stood on top of a table, so he could see 
and be out of the way. In a few minutes j HENRY WADE, the District 
Attorney, and Captain FRITZ came into the assembly room with 
OSWALD for an interview with the press, OSWALD mumbled or talked 
a little, but the newsmen could not hear him. RUBY did not hear 
OSWALD either. After a short time. Captain FRITZ took OSWALD 
away, HENRY WADE was then interviewed by the newsmen. 

RUBY said that he had his revolver in his right front 
trouser pocket all during this evening, November. 22 and 23, 
195 3, except when he went to church services. He left the 
revolver in his car while he was in church but put it back in 
his right trouser pocket when he got back to his car. He said 
he c arried his gun because he had a lot of money on his person 
and "always carried his gun when he carried money. 

After the interview with WADE, RUBY left the assembly 
room and was out in the corridor, A newsman came by whom RUBY 
did not know, and RUBY asked him if he had seen JOE DELONG, of 
KLIF. This man said he had not seen DELONG, and RUBY mentioned 
that he had some sandwiches for KLIF. This man said he was from 
KBOX radio and asked RUBY what was the matter with them . RUBY 
said he told the man that next time maybe, but this time he had 
the sandwiches for KLIF. This man. from. KBOX then gave RUBY the 
unlisted phone number for KLIF, RUBY went around behind the 
counter in the basement offices of the Police Department and 
telephoned KLIF, talking to an employee named KEN, He told KEN 
he had some sandwiches but could not get in the entrance door 
to the radio station. At about that time, HENRY WADE walked f^ 
by, and RUBY was still talking to KEN so he asked KEN if he /7\ 
wairted- to talk to HENRY WADE. KEN said he did, so RUBY" called V 

Hall (C. Ray) Exhibit No. 3 — Continued 


DL UU-1639 

to HENRY WADE and told WADE he was wanted on the telephone. 
,s'ADE talked on the phone to KEN, then handed the phone back to 
RUBY. RUBY talked to KEN again, and KEN told him it was great 
bf RUBY to help him get the interview with WADE, 

I RUBY said he then left the Police Department building, 

vent to his car and drove over to Radio Station KLIF. He got 
the sandwiches out of his car to take them upstairs, but the 
front door was locked. In about ten or fifteen minutes, RUSS 
\NIGHT came by and let him inside. They all went upstairs, 
and the employees on duty ate the sandwiches. RUBY left Radio 
Station KLIF at about 3:00 AM on November 23, 1963, and drove to 
t'r.Q. Dallas Times Herald newspaper building. He went inside and 
talked to an employee named PAT GADOSH and gave PAT a twist 
Doard, an exerciser. GADOSH is the person at the newspaper who 
takes ruby's ads for his clubs. 

He talked with GADOSH about the advertisement in the 
Dallas Morning News, by BERNARD WEISSMAN, that was critical of 
President KENNEDY. GADOSH told RUBY not to worry about the ad, 
Decause the Dallas Morning News was suffering enough for carrying 
such an ad. RUBY got his ad taken care of and drove toward home, 

'. V"^'While driving home, RUBY thought of the similarity 
between the BERNARD WEISSMAN advertisement and a sign he had 
seen which read, "Impeach EARL WARREN". He drove home and 
awakened GEORGE SENATOR and asked SENATOR to go with him. He 
called the Carousel Club and awakened his employee, LARRY, and 
asked LARRY if he knew how to operate a Polaroid camera, LARRY 
said he could operate the camera, so he told LARRY he would be 
down to pick up LARRY and the camera, RUBY and SENATOR then 
drove to the Carousel Club sometime about 4:00 or 5:00 AM on 
Jiovember 23, 195 3, and picked up LARRY and the camera. They 
drove to Central Expressway and Ross Avenue, where they found 
a sign, about 2 feet by 4 feet, on top of a Potter Steel Company 
sign, which read "Impeach EARL WARREN", and at the bottom of this 
sign was -"Box 1757, Beltham, Mass," 

They took some photographs of this sign, and RUBY then 
remembered that the BERNARD WEISSMAN ad had the address "Box 17 92, 
Dallas, Texas", so they drove to the Main Post Office in Dallas 
and looked at Post Office Box 1792, RUBY asked a man on duty at 
the post office for the name of the man who had Post Office Box 
L792, but the man told him he could not give RUBY the name of ^ 
the box holder. They left and went to the Southland Hotel !\

Coffee Shop, where RUBY talked for a few minutes with the 
owner, a taan believed to be named WEBB, RUBY said as a 
patriotic "American he was so upset and intense over the sign, 
and— the- a<iv^rtisement critical of President KENNEDY, '-tbat;, he 
could not eat anything but drank some orange juice at the 
coffee shop. They left the coffee shop and dropped off LARRY 
at the Carousel Club at about 6:00 AM. As he got out of the 
car, LARRY, told RUBY that he supposed RUBY was not going to 
bed, and RUBY told LARRY that he was not going to bed. RUBY 
and SENATOR drove on to their apartment and went to bed. 

At about 8:30 AM on November 23, 1963, LARRY phoned 
RUBY and asked him what kind of dog food he wanted. RUBY said 
that before he realized that he had told LARRY he was not going 
to bed, he talked real ugly to LARRY. He found out later that 
LARRY left the keys to the Carousel Club next door and left 
town without telling RUBY he was leaving or where he was going, 
RUBY got up at about 11:00 or 11:30 AM and got dressed and 
drove downtown. He decided to stop and look at all the wreaths 
that had been placed on the side of the street near where 
President KENNEDY had been shot. He looked at the wreaths, then 
went over to talk to Police Officer CHANEY, who was on duty 
there, and talked with CHANEY for a few minutes, but choked up 
and left because he did not want CHANEY to see him crying. He 
went on up the street and met WES WISE, of'KRLD television station 
and talked to WISE for a few minutes. He drove on away and as he 
was leaving he noticed that Captain FRITZ and Chief of Police 
CURRY were walking around the scene of the assassination. He 
backed up and told WISE, "There goes FRITZ and CURRY". He then 
drove on home. 

Later on in the afternoon he drove ba'ck downtown and 
went to Sol's Turf Bar and talked with a man named BELLOCHIO, 
or something like that, who was in the place, and also talked 

"to his accountant, ABE KLEINMAN, who was in the place. He 
she ed them photos that he had taken of the sign "Impeach EARL 
V;ARREN", and they talked about that. BELLOCHIO was talking 
about the bad publicity that Dallas would get because President 
KENNEDY had been killed in Dallas and said he would probably 
have to leave town* RUBY reminded him that he had made his 

^money in Dallas and should not leave now. BELLOCHIO wanted one 

■of the photos that RUBY had taken, but RUBY would not -give him 
a photo. While in this bar RUBY called his attorney, STANLEY 

-KAUFMAN, and he told STANLEY about the photos, RUBY was in 
Sol's Turf Bar about forty-five minutes, then left sometime 
between 3tQ0 and HtOO PM on the afternoon of November 23, 1983,

He does not remember exactly where he went '. .. . ■ -. 

;hen he left but may have gone by the Lacy Building to see his 
railor, but he then went back to the Carousel Club and then on 
lome. His employee ANDY at the Carousel Club called him about 
i:00 PM and wanted to leave, but RUBY told ANDY to stay at the 
:lub to answer any incoming telephone calls. He stayed home 
intil about 11:00 PM, when he went to the Pago Club. He sat 
lown at a back table and ordei'ed a Coke. BOB NORTON, the manager, 
;a"e over and told RUBY that he was going to close the club but 
lad been told to keep it open. RUBY told NORTON that was all 
"ight, he could do whatever he wanted to do, but he -had closed 
lis clubs. RUBY left there after he finished his Coke and drove 
:o his Carousel Club. He stayed around there for a little while, 
:hen drove home because he was not interested in any gaiety. He 
iid not go to the Cabana Motel and visit a club there. 

RUBY said that on the morning of November 24, 1953, 
le got a call from one of his dancers called LITTLE LYNN, who 
■.as been a pain to him because of her actions, and she said she 
lecded some money for her landlord. On Friday night, November 22, 
.953, he had to give her $5.00 so she could get home. He did not 
;ant her to come by his apartment to get the money because her 
lusband would come with her and RUBY did not like her husband, 
ie told LYNN he would send her some money by Western Union to 
'ort Worth, Texas. He had a lot of money with him that he had 
lor a deposit to pay his excise tax, so he got his revolver and put 
.t in his right front trouser pocket. He said he never carried the 
;un in his coat pocket because it would get his coat out of shape. 

He said- he had no permit to carry a gun and had no card 
)r badge as any kind of l-E:w;:cr;'irc5f-.::wr.cnCoaf.fiGcxt:o THd^aev^r ,::,- 
I number- of officers of the Dallas Police Department knew he had a

:aken him out of jail and given his gun back to him. He did not 
'ecall the names'of these officers. He said that being around 
:lubs and carrying money — it was like a jungle with all the 
,.;tickups--he carried his revolver when he had money on his person. 

He left his apartment, got in his car and started to 
own to send the money to LITTLE LYNN. As he drove out of his 

iveway, he stopped and talked to a neighbor, name unknown but 
rho is the father-in-law of Police Officer BUDDY MUENSTER. RUBY 
ad his dog in the car with him. He drove toward town on the 
hornton Expressway and turned off onto Industrial Street, then 
,p Industrial to Main Street so he could see the wreaths at the

spot where President KENNEDY was assassinated. As he passed 
the County Building .he noticed a lot of people around so he 
assumed that OSWALD had already been moved to the County Jail. 
He drove on up Main Street and as he passed the City Hall he 
noticed a number of people around there. Just before he reached 
the next corner, he made an illegal left turn into a parking lot 
across the street from the Western Union Office and parked his 
car there. He left his dog in his car. He then walked across 
the street and sent a money order for $25.00 to LITTLE LYNN at 
Fort Worth, 

After sending the telegram, he left the Western Union 
office and walked west on the same side of the street, toward 
the City Hall, located on the next corner. Before he reached 
the Police Department building, he noticed a police officer 
standing at the entrance to the ramp going into the basement 
from Main Street, but he did not know the police officer. Just 
before he reached that point, a police car came out of the 
basement, and he recognized the driver of the police car as 
Lieut, PIERCE. He explained he has known Lieut. PIERCE for 
twelve or fourteen years. PIERCE did not look toward him or 
speak to him and RUBY did not speak to Lieut. PIERCE. RUBY 
could not recall seeing anyone else in the police car with 
Lieut, PIERCE in either the front or back seat of the police car. 

As. the police car driven by Lieut. PIERCE came out of 
the basement ramp , the officer on duty at the entrance stepped 
-back and walked toward the curb next to the street, with his 
back toward RUBY, As the police car got even with this officer, 
the officer stooped down and looked inside the car. At about 
this time, RUBY. had reached the entrance to the Main Street 
ramp, and he took in the movement of the police car and the 
officer on duty at the ramp, with a quick glance. Without 
breaking his stride or hesitating, RUBY turned to his left and 
walked down the ramp into the basement. As he entered the 
ramp, he does not recall seeing any person standing around the 
entrance y and he does not know a former police officer named 

RUBY said he 'is positive he did not have either of 
his hands in any of his pockets — either coat or trouser pockets — 
when he entered and walked down the ramp. He .did not look behind 
him to see which way the police car went when it entered the 
street, and- he did not look behind him to see whether anyone ^ 
observed him entering the basement.. RUBY said he had no kind •-

of press card or any other kind of identification on the outside 
of his coat, and he exhibited no identification to anyone to 
gain entrance to the basement. 

Just as he got to the bottom of the ramp, RUBY said, 
"A person who pops out with two men; that is all I can remember; 
:iaturally I know who he is; to me, he had this smirky, smug, 
^'indictive attitude; I can't explain what impression he gave me, 

but that is all I can , well, I just lost my senses; the next 

I knew I was on the ground and five or six people were on top of 
ne". RUBY said that as he was going down the ramp he spoke to no 
3ne and no one spoke to him. He did not recognize anyone in the 
;rowd there, and he did not stop and stand behind anyone. 

RUBY was asked why he killed OSWALD, and he said, "I 
vas in mourning Friday and Saturday. To me, when he shot before 
ne like he did, something in my insides tore out, and I just went 
Dlank. To me, he represented — I'll go back a little bit. I 
Listened to a eulogy Saturday morning, I am sure, and I heard 
Rabbi SILVERMAN speak about our President, He said, 'Here is a that fought in all battles, but he didn't have a chance to 
fight here, he was shot from the rear'. I have been around people 
that are so smug and hard. Then about OSWALD being associated 
jith Communism, and how he blemished this beaoitiful city; and Mrs. • 
<ENNEDY having to come back to the trial. I told no one I was 
5oing to kill him. No one knew I was going to shoot him. I didn't 
iiscuss anything with anyone about shooting him. No police 
officer assisted me in any way, or did, or said anything to 
suggest ray shooting OSWALD. I remembered MULLINAX, a police 
officer who was killed, and MULLINAX was a friend of mine, I did 
lot know J. D. TIPPIT. I knew a TIPPIT on the police department, 
3ut he was in the Special Service Bureau, and he was not the TIPPIT 
Lhat was killed. I did not know the TIPPIT that was killed." 

RUBY said he has never had any serious illnesses or 
hospitalizations and does not have a steel plate in his head, 
ie volunteered his mother had previously been committed to an 
Insane asylum. He professed to know of no other history of mental 
Illness in his family. 

RUBY stated he was born in Chicago in 1911. He spent 
bur or^ive years in various foster homes in Chicago, mentioning 
hat his father was an alcoholic. He said the father's alcoholic 
labits contributed to his mother's mental condition, -along with 
ler problems in "the change of life". He said he rema:iT;ed in \\ 
Jhicago until 1933. r\

RUBY said that in 1946, on being discharged from 
ilitary duty, he returned to Chicago and "prospered" in his 
ail order business involving punch boards and miscellaneous 
terns. He said his sister EVA had for sohie time been wanting 
o operate a night club in Dallas and had moved to Dallas from 
alifornia. He said he in the meantime had had some friction 
ith his brothers and had sold his interest in their mutual 
usiness of selling punch boards and other items to the brothers. 

He said he sent money to his sister EVA for a lease on 
building in which to open a club. He said he at that time was 
iving at the Congress Hotel, Chicago, having saved some money. 
e said for a brief period he was associated with one PINKIE 
ARWOOD, who lived in Detroit, in the. promotion, of. ."cookware". 
his was not a successful venture. 

He said that in 1947 he moved to Dallas to be associated 
ith EVA in the night club business. He returned to Chicago, how- 
ver, in the same year in a few months in an effort to enter into 
arious 'Merchandising deals". Being unsuccessful, he returned to 
alias in 1947 and has lived in Dallas continuously since. 

RUBY said he went broke in the night club business in 

952 and had a "mental breakdown". He continued along this line 
y saying he was "mentally depressed" and that he "hibernated in 
he Cotton Bowl Hotel" for three or four months, declining to see 
is friends. He said he went back to Chicago briefly and his 
rother EARL tried to help him out financially. He returned to 
alias, however, in 1952. 

RUBY said his first ventures in Dallas- were the Bob 
ills Ranch House and Silver Spur. He said that WILLIE EPSTEIN 
nd MARTY GIMPLE were associated with him in the Silver Spur 
nd it was at the Silver Spur that he went broke. He said after 
is "comeback" he tried operating the Silver Spur again. In 1952- 

953 he operated the Ervay Theater, a motion picture house, 
riefly. In 1953 he became associated ■ in theVega-s. Club and 
Hernando's Hideaway", 

■ •^ In 1956 he sold his interest in the Silver Spur. He

Club, established as a private club, became the Carousel, which 
continues to operate, 

RUBY said he has not been associated with or operated 
any night clubs except in Dallas, Texas. 

RUBY stated that he visited a friend of his brother in 
Windsor, Ontario, Canada, in 1929-1930 for two or three months. 
In 1933, when en route to California on a brief trip, he went 
across into Mexico at Juarez, He said this was purely a "tourist" 
trip of short duration. He said he has never been in Mexico 
otherwise and has never been outside the Continental United States 
except as indicated above and below. He said he has never been in 
Honolulu, Hawaii, 

RUBY related that in August 1959 he went to Havana, 
Cuba, to see L, C, MC WILLIE, who was "some sort of a good will 
man" for the Tropicana, a gambling establishment. He said MC WILLIE 
sent him a plane ticket and he lived at the Fosca Apartments with 
MC l^ILLIE- for a period of eight to ten days. He said he spent all 
of his time in Havana except to go to a small area on one occasion 
with "one of the FOX brothers", who owned the Tropicana, He said 
his trip to Cuba was completely non-political and that he has had 
no correspondence with persons in Cuba, He said MC WILLIE is now

Communist Party or any "front" organizations, that he has had no

CASTRO was popular in the United States", he read of an individual 
in the vicinity of Houston, Texas, having been engaged in "gun 
running to CASTRO", He said he attempted by telephone to get in 
touch with this individual as he had in mind "making a buck" by 
possibly acquiring some Jeeps or other similar equipment- which 
he might sell to persons interested in their importation to Cuba, 
He saidnothing came of this. He said he had never attended any 
meetings concerned with "gun running", smuggling of persons in 
or out of Cuba or- otherwise- in relation to Cuban affairs.

It is a large truclc with "t;wo bunks in it. FLEI-IING explained 
that the larger truck v/as needed because of the large nujciber 
of people it would be transporting, including OSV??,.LD and a 
number of police officers. 

RfvLL Stated he v/as familiar with the baser.-.ent at 
City Hall and knev; that the truck v;as too large to get into 
the entrance on the ^lain Street side of City Eall , so it v/as 
agreed to back the truck into the entrance on the Corrmerce

The four of them left their Dallas office at about 
10:45 \.M. HALL drove the larger truck, with FLK-ilWG riding

HALL said the entrance to the garage was too sr^all for 
their truck to enter, so he backed into the garage, leaving the 
rear end of the truck inside the garage, and the cab protruding 
outside. He said the truclv almost completely blocked the 
entrance to the garage. COIN and DIETRICH, in the smaller 
armored truck, parked ir.-aediately adjacent to the garage 
entrance , on the north side of Commerce Street , Just east of the 
garage entrance. 

KALL estimated that they parked in the garage entrance 
at about lljOO A.M. on November 24, 1S63 . FLEI-IING got out of the 
passenger side of the truck and entered the garage to talk v/ith 
Chief BATCHELOR and other police officials. Ei^JLL was not told

ROBERT LEONARD HANKAL, Floor Director, Production 
Xpartment, Radio and TV Station KRLD, Herald Square, Dallas, 
Dyxcs, rumlshed the following Information: 

Ke resides at '4233 Travis Street, Apartment 2l4, 
Dallas, Texas, home telephone number LA 8-143^ He was first 
assigned to handle the television coverage at -the City' Hall 
In Dallas, Texas, on November 23, 1963. His duties as 
rioor director are to insixre that the cameramen for the TV 
station are set up in good positions and that there are no 
obstructions during filming. His memory of the events on 
l^ovember 23 and 24, I963, is hazy but as he recalled the 
jamera crew for KRLD included Cameraman GENE PASCZALEK, his 
assistant BEN MOLINA, and himself. They initially were set 
lip on the third floor near the Homicide Bureau and on Saturday 
afternoon, oransf erred to the basement of the police headquarters, 
where JAMES ENGLISH took over as cameraman. Mr. LEIGH WEBB 
Mias the director in charge and he gave the assignments. > 


On November 24, I963, he was called and told to 
rc.vort to wprk at 7:00 a.m. He reported to Mr. WEBB who 
was located at the KRLD sound truck which was parked on 
Commerce Street outside of the police headquarters . As 
Identification he' had been furnished a letter written by 
yir.'- EDDIE BARKER, one of the executives at KRLD on the 
letterhead stationery of the station. , This letter identified 
him as a member of the camera crew. WEBB told him he should 
report to the basement where the camera was located and he 
entered the city hall through the Commerce Street entrance. As 
he passed the information desk in the lobby a police officer 
told him to be sure he had identification if- he were going 
to t.-.e basement. At that time he had the letter identifying 
him in his hand. He then took the elevator downstairs and 
left 'ohe elevator with the letter still in his. hand. As 
beet ho could recall he did not have to show the letter to a 
reserve police officer standing outside of the elevator and 
he therefore assumed that the officer had taken for granted 
that the paper in his hand was his lde;ntification. He then 
went to the camera which was located near the elevator bank 
in the baser:ent and assisted in moving the camera to the 
.T.ain bi-cement area. The camera was eventually placed on 
the floor of the garage with the lens protruding between 
tv.'o iron rails and facing directly X^—^'^g- hal.1 wn.v_j_<??t rij_npi_

from the jail booking desk to the* garage. He stayed in that 
location until LEE liARVEY OSWALD was brought downstairs with 
the exception of a trip he made to the mens' room. He made 
sure that he took a police officer with him to the mens* 
room so that he would have no difficulty in returning to 
the canera location. He positioned himself on the ramp 
side o- the rai'.ing in front of the camera and all the 
necessary,'' lighting and other arrangements were finished 
about 10:00 a.m. His primary concern was to see to it that no 
people obstructed the view of the camera. He liad no advance 
knowledge as to how the prisoner would be transported from the: 
city jail. 

A short time later he heard someone say, "He's 
coming," and considerable shuffling began. He noted that 
a number of officers locked arms in front of the camera 
and one of them stepped aside at his request. Either 
immediately before or after the above incident he recalled 
that a Dallas police car had driven from the garage basement 
up the 2'Iain Street ramp. He paid very little attention 
to this and a few moments after that the door opened at the 
jail office and OSWALD appeared in the custody of police 
officers. He took a quick look at OSWALD cut of curiousity 
and before he knew it a scuffle began and he 'heard what he 
thought was either a backfire or gunshot. His first reaction 
was that OSV/ALD had grabbed a police officer's gun. He 
also recalled seeing a man's back directly in front of him 
obstructing his view of OSWALD and seemed to recall that 
immediately preceding that he had observed a blur of movement 
out of the comer of his eye. It seemed that the individual 
who he later learned was RUBY' was to his right and 8-12 feet 
..•.-;ay. He heard no shouGs of any particular significance to 
this and could recall no remarks of any significance during 
the bedlam that occurred after the shooting. - During most 
of this he was busily preoccupied with moving people aside 
In order to give the camera clear shots of OSWALD'S apJpearance 

Relating to Saturday, November 23/ 1963, he saw LEE 
PIARVEY OSV/ALD briefly cs he was being taken to the Jail offlcei 
His memory concerning these events , is hazy but he also recalle 
Meeting as floor director in the assembly room v;hen a statement 
was mad.- by the Chief of Police. He did not recall seeing 
JACK RUBY at any time prior to the shooting of OSWALD In any 
of these Vw.i.-'^oua locations,

has been a patroinan In ths Traffic Buraau since that tine. • • 
He first met JACK RUBY wh*n he was working in District #41 
about 11-12 years ago. That district covers one of the 
roughest sections in Dallas and included in it was RUBY's 
Silver Spur Club. Ther« ars a. lot of tavern brawls in the 
district and as h« rsc*lls h« first saafc R03Y when he was 
assigned to ch-sck on a brawl at ths club. Hs also recalled 
that one night he we^it to RUBY's Club on a call and it 
was determined that an individual had bitten RUBY's finger 
so badly during a fight tliat part of it had to be amputated. 
He did not know th« identity of this individual. 

During the last four yaars or so he has socially 
visited RUBY'S Carousal Club but has never been there on an 
asslgnnent while on duty. H« Yaq K«v«r been to RUBY's 
Vegas Club. 

The only thing that ha knows about RUBY's backgrovmd 
is that he was raised in a sIuk area of either Chicago or 
New York City. RUBY told hln that he had to scrap for a 
living when he was a young boy biit he could recall nothing 
else concerning RIBY's background. During the last 8 years 
he has directed traffic at th« Intersection of Main and 
Akard Streets In Dallas, Ks would see JACK RUBY 
a number of tl?!.e:a during th« w«ek, Just as he would see 
many other dowi^town buEln«£?snen. R^'BY was alv;ays friendly 
to hln and often chatted with him briefly on these occasions. 
He is not a social friend of RUBY and has never had any dealings 
cr conversations with him other than when he was on duty or 
the few times he visited RUBY's club. RTJEY was always nice 
to him on these occaslo2:is. K* described RUBY as being very i 
big hearted and has seen hlo give -monfty to needy people on \ 
the streets of Dsllas on a nonb'^r of occasions. He also ' 
has heard that RUBY has been v«ry liberal with some of the

Ir. general and he was very surpriaed to learra that RUBY had 
placed his (HANSEN) R&iiie on the visitor's list at the county 

He considered R^JEY to be a thoroughly emotional 
Individual and recalled that oss ore occasion at the Silver 
Spur Club RUBY hit a aara who Kid* a derogatory remark 
concerning his ethiic baclzgyouTii. 

He also stated that EUBY v;*lb always respectful 
towards hla and always r*fftrrsd to him as HANSEN and not 
by his nidcname "CAIFISH." ^he orly favor that RTJBY ever 
did for him was to occasionally buy hiia a cup of coffee. 
He also r?;c.!iilad thait ok vlsltiz^ig th<s Carous«l Club one 
night, R"JBY would not l®t hlR jay for the a^Kt-ups but 
this only anounted to about 70^ worth of Ic® and mix. 

He recalled that while statloKSd at the Main and 
Akard intersection about 4 E»o:itha 'igo^ RliBY conversed with 
him briefly cowceraing Pr&eii!S-K:t JOI-2^' F. KENNEDY, RUBY 
told him that he felt KEbUIIfl h«.d doKe mamy -feSlirjgs for the 
Anerican people. H® stated that in the past R'OBY also told 
him that he cor„sid«r©d FBAri'iCLIH D. HOCSEv'ELT to be one of 
the greatest men of all tlaes, KUBI never told him if he 
was a Republican or Dercocrftt tnd he did not feel that RUBY'S 
feelings concernirg ¥E^Z:?EDY or ROOSEVELT had any connection with 
RUBY'S political beli«}';?o but wsr® asore out of admiration for 
them as men. He also r-»&dilled thAt after ADLAI STEVENSON 
visited Dallas, RUBY mftntlcaed t< him that the people should 
have been more respectful to £TEni!30>i regardless of whether 
or not they liked him. 

He knows v®ry little RllBY's personal 
life and although he has hear-d nmovB that RUBY was a homosexual 
he never believed them. He oar.aot recall who he heard these 
ru5:ors from but he had n»v®r had any r^s.son to believe it 
hiKself . R^JBY str-^ick hira as belLig a v«?ry manly Individual 
A.rsd was particularly Imprassed by his good physical condition 
for a man of his age. 

He stated he knows -SJSORaE SES«ATOH who allegedly 
lived with RUBY at cne time but he had no personal knowledge 
of this. He first met SEJ-IATOR near the intersection of Akard 
and Main Streets while SENATOR was coKiducting business. A-&^

he recallfld SENATOR drovs a Volksw'gsn truck and was in some 
t«7pe of novelty business. -ni'it Wis th« only knowledge he 
had of SENATOR and the plsce he h&s ever seen him. 

He has never wor-ksd for R^JBY although RUBY at one 
tine suggested thit h« Eight Ilk* to work as a bouncer at 
the Silver Spur Club. This w»3 i'ot «r: ur.usual request because 
of the rough neighborhood the club was in and the number of 
disturbance calls that were m'vde to tha club. He stated 
he told RUBY he could not work there and the main reason 
he turned RUBY down was bftcaus* h« krew so little concerning 
his background. He lcn;ows of r.o Dill^<police officer that 
at any time worked for KLTBY. H's kr.ew of no officer fron 
the Dallas Folic® Dep&rfc««r;t vjho is a particular friend 
of RUBY. He stated that probably ev®r-y officer who 
worked a downtown corner would k^iow RlsBY as well as he does. 

He stated it en's? *s a coaplete surprise when he heard 
RUBY had shot LEE HARVEf OSWALD. H« never personally knew 
RUBY to carry a gun but because of the business RUBY was In 
he 'would be a fool not to. 

On Friday^, No/"£lsr 22^ 1963^ he worked the intersection 
of Main and Akard fron lOsOO a.K. usstll 6;00 p.m. On Saturday 
November 23, 1963* he w-^s off dut-y Jind worked at his part-time 
job at the H. L, Green Compariy^ 1623.;- Eln Street^ Dallas. 
He spent all of Sunday, NovS'Bb'sr 24, 1963, at his residence. 
He had no knowledge of ^he sacurlty precautions taken at 
the Dallas Police Head':jufv.rt*rs durl;i!g the weekend of 
November 24, 1963, 

As best he could r*::-tll the i&st tine he saw JACK 
PUBY was on November 22, 1963^ b&twe.'^n 9s00 and 9°30 a.m. 
H« was entering the City EsjI Bulldlrg from the Harwood

leads to the basement , He s^id th«r* w«re four or five 
individuals standing with RUBlf but he cculd not recall 
their identity and at this time was not certain whether 
or not they were police officers. H« felt thAt the crowd 
was apparently gathering at that time in anticipation 
of the fact that President KENNEDY would be driving through 
the downtown section of Dallas lat«r la the Bomlng. As he

walked by RUBY he shook his hiAnd and sAld good morning but 
did not engage in conversation with him. He has not seen 
or heard from, him sir^ce thit time and has made no effort 
to get in touch with hin, h> c.^r.»:ot understand why RUBY 
would have his nime on the vislti:',.K; list at the county

VJILLIAM JOSEPH HARRISON, 9223 Donny Brook, Dallas, Texas, was advised 
he did not have to make any statement, any statement he made could be used 
against him in a court of law, he had a right to talk to an attorney, and of 
the identities of SAs EDMOND C. HARDIN and ROBERT J. WILKISON. 

HARRISON advised as follows: 

He is employed as Patrolman by the Dallas, Texas, Police Department, 
end is currently assigned as Detective in the Juvenile Division, Criminal 
Investigation Division, Police Headquarters. 

On November 2*+, 1953, he worked the 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. shift and was 
on duty in the .Juvenile Division, Third Floor of the Police Station, on a 
standby basis. About 11 a.m. he want to the locker room and on his return 
' observed the other detectives in the Juvenile Division going to the basement. 
They told him to coma too. This was approximately 11 a.m. or shortly thereafter. 

Upon arrival in the basement the officers stood around in the corridor 
Voutside the jail office awaiting instructions. After a few minutes one of the 
police officers, whose name he does not recall, instructed them to have all 
the press and television representatives move to along the east wall area of 
the basement ramp. They did so. 

He doesn't know how many press and television representatives were 
in the basement, but there was quite a large. crowd. He didn't see anyone 
other than police officers, press or .television representatives in the basement 

area. \ 

He has known JACK RUBY as a Dallas night club operator for several 
years in connection with his employment .as a police officer, but never had 
any personal associations with RUBY. -^'-x 


Prior to the time that LEE HARVEY OSWALD was brought dovm to the 
bscemcnt, HARRISON looked at the crowd in attendance but did not see anyone 
suspicious. He did not see JACK RUBY, He was stationed in the basement ramp 
area at least six or seven minutes prior to the time OSWALD was escorted into 
that area. 

There was an armored car at the Commerce Street entrance to the 
i basement ramp and there were two plain unmarked police cars inside the ramp 
which wore behind the armored car.

Harrison Exhibit No. 5029 



He was stationed in the center of the ramp in the area where the 
corridor leading from the jail office meets the ramp. Other officers were 
along the west side of the rampo The press and television representatives 
were on the east wall of the ramp facing the corridor through which OSWALD 
would pass while being transferred from the City Jail to the vehicle used 
to transport him. At about that time one or two police cars went out the 
Main Street exit. He believes Lieutenant PIERCE was in one of the cars. 
This was about three or four minutes prior to the time OSWALD was escorted 
out of the jail* office. 

He said Captain FRITZ came out of the jail office and asked an 
officer, identity not recalled by HARRISON, if everything was O.K. and 
received an affirmative answer. 

Immediately thereafter OSWALD was escorted out of the jail office 
door by Detectives GRAVES and LEAVELLE, one of whom was on either side of 
OSWALD. They walked down the- short corridor towards the ramp and the 
officers who had been stationed along the corridor filled in behind them. 

As OSWALD and the officers walked down the corridor towards the 
ra:r.p, someone in the group of press representatives called for' HARRISON 
and some officers near him to move back. He glanced back over his left 
shoulder to the crowd behind him, but didn't see anything suspicious and 
did not see JACK RUBY in the crowd. One or two of the officers near him 
shifted t;heir positions a little, 
, , ^ f-- ■' 

;.<.■*'. ,. ^^x-rciiiQ OSWALD was being escorted down the corridor, OSWALD glanced 
at the crowd behind HARRISON and on HARRISON'S left side. 

At about that same instant a man whom HARRISON later recognized ast 
JACK RUBY ran past his left side in a crouched-over position, RUBY was about 
one-half step ahead of him when he first saw RUBY, He observed that RUBY 
had a gun in his right hand and was extending his right hand in OSWALD'S 
direction. RUBY was moving directly towards OSWALD, OSV/ALD was only about 
six feet from HARRISON at the time that RUBY passed by him and RUBY had only 
about one step to go to reach OSWALD. 

At about the same instant that he saw the gun in RUBY's hand he 
recognized RUBY and immediately started to move towards RUBY, The gun was 
fired by RUBY almost instantly. At. the time the gun went off, HARRISON had 
his right hand on RUBY's right forearm and was trying to stop RUBY from firiii 
the gun. As HARRISON followed through on his rush toward RUBY, he forced 
RUBY to the floor. At that same time several other officers also grabbed

of RUBY. 


He said Detective GRAVES took the gun out of RUBY's right 

HARRISON'S attention was centered on RUBY and in trying to get the 
,71 away from RUBY 9 he didn't see what happened to OSWALD. HARRISON and the 
ther officers took RUBY back into the jail office and handcuffed him. At 
hat-tiire RUB'^}^^d<>^ou all know me. I am JACK RUBY." RUBY made that statement 

^i^Ssjfi.^ !itM^ter they had taken RUBY back into the jail office, some of 
h& other officers brought OSWALD into the jail office. While in the jail 
ffice an officer, whose name he does not recall, asked RUBY why he had shot 
3WALD and RUBY replied "I hope I killed the S.O.B." HARRISON, Captain KING, 
id another officer took RUBY upstairs to the fifth floor. 

are the officers who had handcuffed RUBY. 

HARRISON'S attention, while in the jail office, was centered on 
JEY and he didn't have anything to do with OSWALD. However, he recalled 
lat when he observed OSWALD in the jail office, he noticed that OSWALD had 
sen shot and appeared to be unconscious. 

After arrival on the fifth floor he left RUBY and the other officers 
id had no further contact with RUBY. He did not hear RUBY make any other 
:atements, other than as previously related. 

At the time RUBY was subdued and made the above-quoted remark in the 
ill office about killing OSWALD, RUBY was perfectly calm. At no time while 
1 HARRISON'S presence did RUBY appear to be emotionally excited or upset, 

HARRISON never worked for RUBY or at any of RUBY's night cl\;ibs. 
i never heard of any police officers who ever worked for RUBY. He said 
>lice officers are prohibited from working off-duty at establishments where 
.coholic beverages are served. 

HARRISON was not familiar with the security measures in the police 
lation November 24 g 1953. However, he did observe that officers were 
;anding at the entrance to the basement ramp area. 

He did not know of any unauthorized person permitted to enter the 
isement or of anyone permitted to enter without showing identification, 
did not have any occasion to require anyone to identify themselves. 


Harrison Exhibit No. 0029 — Continued 



He did not see RUBY or talk to RUBY between November 22 and November 2U. 
1963, until he observed RUBY a second or so before RUBY shot OSWALD on 
November 2^^ 1963. 

HARRISON had no information concerning any relationship between 
OSWALD and RUBY. He did not know OSWALD. 

HARRISON had no other pertinent information concerning this case.

A. D. HODGE, owner of Buckhorn Bar and Trading Post, i;), -^ 
217-19 South Ervay, residence 6573 Senwood, Dallas, Te::as, V 
stated that he has known JACK LEON RUBY for over 20 years, vo^^ 

that RUBY during that time hae boon vory well known by most --4 
of the police officers in the Dallas Police Department, as y ^• 
well as the Sheriff's Office. HODGE stated that prior to i ' • 

seeing a photograph in the newspapers of LEE HARVEY OSv;ALD, "^\x ^^ < 

he had never known that individual before, nor had he ever 

heard of him. ^ 


Mr. HODGE stated he did not have any information 
concerning possible associations between OSV/ALD and RUBY. ^ ^ 
Mr. HODGE stated that on the evening of November 22, 1963 -, 
the same date of the assassination of President KENNEDY, he 
had been talking to some officers in the Dallas Police 
Department at their request concerning the assassination r^ -si 
weapon, since he is somewhat of a gun collector in the >^ n, 
Buckhorn Trading Post, and the Dallas Police Department ^^ 
wanted him to check all of his records concerning the sale 
of the assassination weapon to OSWALD. 

Mr. HODGE stated that the only pertinent thing he 
wished to mention is that as he was going down on tho elevator 
in the Dallas Police Department, City Hall, the elevator stopped 
either on the second or third floor, and JACK LEON RUBY got on. 
He stated that RUBY immediately shook hands with him and asked 
"Have they arrested you, HODGE?" HODGE stated he took this as 
a Joke, that both laughed, and nothing further was said about it. 
He did not ask RUBY why he was there, nor did RUBY volunteer, 
but he thought RUBY \>&s merely there as he was, attempting to 
assist the Dallas Police Department. 

HODGE reiterated' that he had no information concerning 
any connections between RUBY and OSWALD.

"On December 1, 1963 Reserve Officer, Patrolman Harold B. 
Holly Jr. was interviewed by the .undersigned officers 
as to any information he might have concerning the shooting 
of Lee Harvey Oswald. Holly had not submitted a report 
prior to the interview V7ith these officers. 

"Patrolman Holly stated that he reported to the City Hall 
at approximately lis 30 a.m. on November 24, 1963. He was 
assigned to work traffic at the intersection of Main and 
Harwood Streets. At approximately 11:45 a.m. he was 
assigned to Parkland Hospital to assist in the handling of 
traffic at that location. 

"While there. Holly stated that an unknown reserve police 
officer related to him that he, the unkno^Tn reserve 
officer, had passed Jack Ruby into the basement of the 
City Hall after Ruby had, presented press credentials. 

"Holly was shown photographs of several reserve officers 
by Captain J. M. Solomon and was unable to identify this 
unknovm reserve officer. 

"Captain Solomon advised the undersigned officers to be 
skeptical of this information and not to place too much 
credence in it. 

"Holly stated that he was not familiar with Jack 
Ruby and had not seen him on the date of Oswald's

He is employed as a General Contractor with v^ • f ^

officer with fee Police Department at Dallas, Texas, ^ ^ _:; 
for a nur.:ber of years and is presently a member of the ,' r-7.., C 

First Platoon, "C" Company. J .1^'''^ 

.'^s concerns his assignments during the week end 
of Novev-iber 24, 1963, he vjas first contacted by Sergeant 
I-l-.YC , on November 21, 1963, and v;as told to report to 
the post of the police reserves at the Central 
Police Headquarters on the follovying day. ?:e stated, 
hov;evar, he had business to conduct on the morning of 
November 22, 1963, and learned of the President's assacsina- 
ticr. while at his residence. Ke imAiediately put on his 
uniform and proceeded to Central Police Mea.dquarcers , 
arriving there about an hour after the President's assassina- 
tion. There x;as much confusion at the police station and 
he did not see any reserve officers that he la?.ew there. 
He did not laicw LEE tLVRVEY CS'.JALD was in the building at 
that time. He went to the office of the Burglary & Theft 
Unit cvi the third floor and spoke with a Captain SOLCIICN, 
v.-ho is the coordinator for the police reserves and is 
assigned to the police training school. He asl-.ed Captain 
SCLCMOl^ what he could do to assist arid v;as told it was 
alright for him to help the regular officers keep spectatorc 
away frc.ii the third floor of the Central Police Headcuarterc . 
He then stationed himself in che third floor lobby and 
checlced identification of anyone v/ho attempted to i7alk 
do-.-.Tn the hall xjhere LEE K.iRVEY OSVJ.a.LD was being held. Ke 
stated he vjas not instructed as to vjhat type of identifica- 
tion would be valid, but he assumed that it would consist 
of seme type of official press card. In his cirn mind, he 
felt press badges were not proper identification and ailc'wed 
no one to pass doxm the hall v;ho merely had a press badge. 
He made a point to check everyone attem.pting to walk by 
him who v.^as not in uniform. He did not l<r.ox7 vjho \-7as in 
charge of the security detail on the third floor. Ke 
worlced for about four hours on the third floor until about

officer vas a patrolman aud he could recall no additional 
dascripcive daca„ 

He believed there was a regular officer direc'cing 
traffic at the intersection of Main and Karvood Streets 
during the time he was assigned to direct traffic at the 
Main Street rarap after the shooting. 

After reading in the paper that a lie-detector 
test had been given an officer of the Police Departrnsnt, 
he assumed the officer referred co was the reserve officer 
he identified froni photographs exhibited to him by Captain 
SOLOMON . He has not heard anything from anyone at the 
police Deoartment, however, concerning the identity of the 
officer who allowed JACK RUBY to enter the building, how 
he might have gotten in., or who the reserve officer he 
spoke vvith might have been. 

As concerns JACK RUBY, he first met bin about 
D.v'o years ago. TOM WATSON, a paint contractor, who is 
r.ovj deceased, arranged with RUBY to paint the front of 
cbe Caro'Usel Club„ Prior to that time, he had not met 
irJSY . W.'^TSON and he want to the club on a Saturday morning 
and RUBY Wc^s there; however, they had very little conversa- 
tion with him. A price had been agreed on for the job 
but, when RUBY saw how little time it took thera to finish 
it;, he became upset and indicated he did not think it v;as 
worth thit much. Since a price had been agreed at prior 
to p-iinting the front, RUBY eventually paid them what they 
had askedo 

Ke has seen RU3Y several times V7hen he rode as 
a partner vjith Lieutenant EVERHART since that time. 
EVER'ti/vRT was v/orking in Special Services then and it vjas 
necessary for him to check all the various night clubs 
in Dallas, including RUi&Y's clubs. At no time during 
these checks did he cc-'nverse with RUBY , however. RUiiY 
never extended any favors toiiiir. or Lieutenant EVERHART 
fc'hll-3 he van vith hire-., and he. vcixid certainly not accept

December 2» 1963 


Mr. ROBERT S. HUFFAKER, JR., on interview at his 
residence, A700 East Side Avenue, Apartment 115, furnished 
the following information: 

He has been in Dallas for only seven months and 
is employed as a reporter for KRLD. He is not well ac- 
quainted in Dallas and prior to the time JACK RUBY shot 
OSWALD, he was not acquainted with RUBY, and to the best 
of his recollection had never seen RUBY before. 

On the morning of November 24, 1963, he was assigned 
to get the story on the transfer of LEE HARVEY OSWALD from 
the Dallas City Jail to the Dallas County Jail, and he went 
to the Dallas Police and Courts Building for this purpose. 
He was required to show identification as a representative 
of the press in order to get into the basement of the Police 
Building and to get to the drive- through ramp in the base- 4\l/^ 
ment where he was standing at the time of the shooting. "^^ 
He arrived at this position approximately thirty minutes \ 
prior to the shooting. Since he does not know RUBY, he . 
would not recall whether RUBY was present in the crowd 
prior to the time he did the shooting or not. 

He would estimate the number of people present in 
the basement of the Police and Courts Building at the time 
of the shooting as approximately 75 people divided equally 
between the press and police. He recognized JIM ENGLISH 
and BOB HINKLE with KRLD- TV camera and TOM PETIT, of NBC, 
and a French news representative, whose first name is 
FRANCOIS but whose last name he does hot know, as being 
present at the time of the shooting. 

He observed guards at both ends of the drive- through 
ramp and he saw officers searching the cars in the parking 
area in the basement prior to the time OSWALD was brought 
out of the Jail. He also saw a patrol wagon driven through to the

In accordance with Kr. Oswald's request to see the Administrator, he was 
interviewed in the reception rocm, 

Kx. Oswald urgently requested that the $200 sent here by his brother for 
his transportation expenses be returned to his brother. He stated that 
his brother is a dairy delivoryman and that it had been a great hardship 
upon his brother to advance the money. 

h'x, OswaM said that he telephoned his brother this morning and was 
informed by his brother, Robert, that the money was raised by placing 
a mortgage on the car. I-j. Lee Oswald said his brother would be obligated 
to make an immediate repayment of this loeui. I-j:. Oswald would prefer 
that the $200 be returned to the brother, that we advance the noney for 
the transportation expenses, and he would then repay us when he v;as able. 

1-lr. Oswald said that his brother had told him that the family would meet 
him on arrival and that local newspapermen would also meet him as they 
had been informed of his return home. Kir. Osv/ald said that he anticipated 
that he would have difficulty in obtaining employment in a large organiza- 
tion, pe was most concerned about the possibility that he might need to 
apply for some public assistance prior to obtaining employment because 
he sponsored his wife's entry and he wanted to avoid her having any 
difficulties with the Inmigration Department. 

to, Oowald spent three years in the I-'-arines, was stationed in Japan and 
the Phillipinea, and said that he received an honorable discharge. 

Mr. Oswald was so anxious that he not use the money sent by his brother 
that he stated he was considering returning the money aiid using the simII 
portion of his own funds remaining to carry the family as far as these 
monies would permit, and then requesting the local authorities to transport 
him the balance of the way to Texas, l/e discussed with Mr, Oswald that 
that would be poor planning on his part, that it was urgent that he reach 
his destination in Texas for the benefit of his family group, that any 
locality in which he stopped off might contact us and that it would be 
obligatory for us to report about the fact he had the funds available to 
him here for bis return to Texas. 

In view of Kir. Oswald's extreme anxiety to not use the money sent him by bis 
brother, we telephoned i-iiss ^lliott of the ^tate Department and informed 
her of Kp. Oswald's request. 

I-iiss ■'''lliott told us that she would discuss the matter with .the Kew York 
City office of the Department of Health, Education and "'elfare and call 

She called back later and requested additional information regarding the 
man's relatives. She was informed that to. Oswald has told us that Robert 
is his only full sibling. H e ha g nr*" hni-p-hrr.-t;)^Q-r,Mhr> is a serg eant 
stat ioned in Japan, w ho "has" a wife tmd two children. His only other 
^relative is his widowed mother who has no home establishment of her own 
and who makes her home with the persons for whom she works, moving from 
job to Job as a practical nurse for elderly patients,

We gave Miss Elliott the information regard ine the flight and departure 
time .and arrival time in Texas, obtained from the Unit. 

KiSs Elliott said that the Health, '^ducation and Welfare office is v/iring 
ahead to the local public assistance agency informing them that should 
Mr. Oswald apply for assistance any funds expended in his care are 
federally reimbursable under the Repatriation Program, Any assistance ex- 
tended will not create difficulties for his wife with the Innigration 

It will be necessary for I-lr. Oswald to use his brother's funds for his 
return' transportation. 

This information was ahared'with Mr. Oswald, He was not completely 
satisfied with the decision but accepted it and accepted the fact that 
at this point the wisest course he could pursue was to prepare hliiself 
and his family for the return flight today,

n.^ Subject: Repatriation from U.S.S.R. 

'^j •* OSWALD, Lee and family Conalstins 

Senior Welfare Consultant of wife and four months infant 

Thank you for bringing the above repatriation case to our attention in your telephone 
call of June 13, 1962 to the effect that Miss Norman of the Travelers Aid Society 
had referred the family to you for possible assistance and possible removal to Texas, 

This will confirm the subsequent information we relayed to you by telephone the same 
afternoon ;following our clearance with the regional office of the U. S. Department 
of Health, Education and Welfare. Miss Choda of that office was dale to advise us 
that the Oswald family was expected on June 13 from Russia via Rotterdam on the 
SS Maasdan of the Holland American line. We understand Mr. Oswald had been in the 
U.S.S.R. for the last two and one-half years and that his wife is Russian. _The 
f amilyj_J^ ^PY. -^s£<^ help, will be eligible under the repatriation^ program according 
jtojbhe_info^i5atipn_£iv©nja8i The~family~was considered destitute although they had 
paid part of their passage hosM, but may need help in going to Texas if the relatives 
are unable to pay passage. The address for Mr, Oswald's mother, Mrs. Margurette 
Oswald, is Box 473, 316 East Donnell, Crowell, Texas, She is said to be interested 
but the extent of her help and interest is unknown. There are some brothers living 
in the same town. 

P.S. Since the above was dictated, we understand that a brother, Robert, 
7313 Davenport, Fort Worth, Texas, forwarded $200 (to supplement the 
$60 Mr. had on arrival) and that the family left for Fort Worth on 
Delta Flight #821 on 6A4/62.

VQ - }Sr, Joha E. Crunp Kareb 16, 1962 

SOT - Sobert I* Ovon 

Operation of Sanctions 3ii?o3ed by Section 2li3(g) of the 
£3sieratlon and nationality Act in Cass of I-lrs. Karisa N. Os'^rald 

It has C0S3 to the attention of SOV that in approving tho 
petition granting Ilrs. Karina 11. Os^-rald non-quota statua the 
San Antonio District Office of US did not inclTido a '..-aiver of 
the sanction against the issuance of the Tisa irriosed by 
Section 2l{3(e) of the Ironicration and nationality Act, It vonld, 
therefore, bo necessary for Krs, C^vald to proceed to a third 
conntry and there apply for a Cnitrsd States visa instead of 
receiving a visa at I'osccw when her husband. Lea Harvey Cs:-7ald, 
la decunentcd for a rotvtm to the US as an Ai^erican citizen. 

Lee Harvey Osvald is an Aaerican citizen vho doiccted ftoa 
tfcs US and decided to reside perrianontly in thj Soviet Union.- 
Althouj^ he nade knorm to the Embassy his orisinal intention to 
renounce Assriccn citizenship, ho never completed the for::alities, 
Vhen he becata disillvisioned uith. life in the Soviet Union, he 
requested passport facilities to return to the U3. After due con- 
sidaratioQ the Passport Office cada the decision th;at Os>.-ald is 
still an Asericsn citizen; the Eriassy has been authoriaed to issue 
Mo a passport for return to tho CSj and SC3 has authorized a loan 
of $500 to enable hia to travel to the US vith his Soviet vilf e and 
recently bom child, • . : ; " 

- 807 believes it Is in the interest of thj US to set Lee 
Harvey Osvald and his fsaily out of the Soviet Union and on their 
*ay to this country as soon as possible. An unstable character, 
'^vhose actions are entirely ucpredictable, Os-A'ald r^y irell refuse to 
leave the USSR or subsequently to return there if ve should 
Bake it i:90sslble for him to be accompanied froa Hoscou by his vife 
and child. 

Such action on our part also 'ould pemit the Soviet Coverment 
to argue tha% althou'^ it had issued an e:cit visa to ijrs. Or^ald to 
prevent the separation of a fa.-aily, the United States Covcmr^ent had 
Imposed a forced separation by refiLsir.g to ic:nie her a visa. 
Obviously, this vould vealcea our Stbassy's position in encouraring 
positive Soviot action ia other cases involviE» Soviet citizen 
relatives of US citizeES,

. 2 . 


Also to ^© conaldsred Is the fact that vo have granted a. loan 
of $500, sufficient only to briir^ tae fenily to Hew Yoric. There is 
a strong possibility that a IT^w lork or other velfare agency will 
have to support the fsnily chirins a stcp-ov-.r in Mew York and pay 
for their onward travel to Texas since Oswald only has a total fund 
of 3700. A detour to a third country vould require additional 
United StHes funds. 


S07 rccaT.-.ends, that 123 bo asked to reconsider on an ur<»ent 
basi^ its dacision regarding the 210(g) waiver for IJs, Oswald, 

In view of the foregoinrj, it is rcco-tended that a telepraa bo 
sent to the E-ibassy at lioscow advisinr; it to i.lthhold action of liO's 
recent d on the subject 0?IRX1101l3i Case of rirs, Marina 11. 
Osvald. In this connection, the ihbassy's y.I20'A j;o, 2li3]i of March 15 
i&ich asked vhcn a decision on the petition and vaiver could be ex- 
pected, apparently was Eotivatcd in part by the fact that Osvald is 
Tising vp his funds while awaiting docuscntation*

Froa: M. T. Jcnlcins, M;D., Professor aad Chairman ' 
Department of Anesthesiology 

Subject: Statement, concemins rccuscitative efforts for 
President John F. Kennedy 

Upon receivins a stat{:alarm that this distinsuiched patient was being brought 
to the emergency room- at Parkland I-Iemorial Kospital, I dispatched Doctors 
A. K. Giesecke and Jackie H. Kunt v/ith an anesthesia machine and rcsuscitativo 
equipment to the major surgical emergency room area, and I ran dovm the stairs. 
On rny arrival in the emergency operating room at approximately 1230 I found 
that Doctors Carrico and/or Dolaney had begun resuscitative efforts by intro- 
' orotracheal tube, connecting it for controlled ventilation to a 
Bennett intermittent positive pressure breathing apparatus. Doctors Charles 
Baxter, 1-Ialcolm perry, and Robert McClelland arrived at the same time and 
began a tracheostomy and started the insertion of a right chest .ube, since 
there was also obvious tracheal and chest damage. Doctors Paul I^etcrs and 
Kemp. Clark arrived simultaneously and immediately thereafter assisted respec- 
tively with the insertion of the right chest tube and VTith manual closed chest 
cardiac compression to fissure circulation. (As evidence of the clear thinking 
of the resuscitative team, the patient received 300 mg. hydrocortisone intra* 
venously in the first few minutes.) 

For better control of artificial ventilation, I exchanged the intermittent 
positive pressure breathing apparatus for an anesthesia machine and continued 
artificial ventilation. Doctors Gene Akin and A. H. Giesecke assisted with 
the respiratory problems incident to changing from the orotracheal tube to a 
tracheostomy'' tube, and Doctors Hunt and Giesecke connected a cardioscope to 
determine cardiac activity. 

During the progress of these activities, the emergency room cart was elevated 
at the feet in order to provide a Trendelenburg position, a venous cutdovra was 
performed on the right saphenous vein, and additional fluids were begun in a 
vein in the left forearm while blood was ordered from the blood bank. All* of 
these activities wore convicted by approximately 1245, at which time external 
cardiac saassage was still being carried out effectively by Doctor Clark as

Vczc 2 -'Statcncnt concerning recuscitativQ 

of forts for Prcsidont John F. Konncdy 

Judged by a palpable peripheral pulse. Despite those meacures there was 
no electrocardiographic evidence of cardiac activity. 

These described recuscitativo activities were indicated ao of first 
irnor'cance, and after they were carried out attention was turned to all 
other evidences of injury. There x/as a great laceration on the right 
side of the head (tc.-nporal and occipital), causing a ^veat defect in the 
skull plate so that there ^7as herniation and laceration of great areas 
of the brain, even to the c:ctcnt that the cerebolluiu had protruded from 
the wound. There were also fracnicntcd sections of brain on the drapes of 
the encrscncy room cart. With the institution of adequate cardiac 
conprcssioa, there was a great flow of blood froa the cranial cavity, 
indicating that thoro vas much vascular das^as^ ^o well as brain tissue 

It Is lay personal feeling that all methods of resuscitation were instituted 
expeditiously and efficiently. However, this cranial and intracranial 
danage was of such magnitudo as to cause the irreversible deia&ze* President 
Kennedy was pronounced dead at 1300.

Lee H. Oswald 
P O Box 30061 
New Orleans, La. 

Dear Mr« Oswald; 

Your letter of August 20th to Elizabeth G. Flynn was turned 
over to mo for reply. Since I received your lolicr of September 1st 
Indicating that you are moving to Baltimore, I suggest that when you 
do move that you get in touch with us here and we will find some way 
of getting in touch with you in that city. 

While the point you raako about your resicloncG in the Soviet 
Union may be utilized by liome people, I think you have to recognize 
that as an American citisca who is now in this country, you have a 
right to participate in such organizations as you want, but at the 
same time there are a number of organisations, including possibly 
pAr Play, which are of a very broad character, and often it is ad- 
visable for some people to remain in the background, not underground. 
I assume this is pretty much ot an academic question aoclr, and we 
can discuss it later. 

Sincerely ;yours, 

Arnold Johnson

At 17, ho enlisted in the U.S. i-arines. "I did it," 
he says, 'hz "because- we wore poor and J didn't want to 
be a burden on my mother," Later, he spent 14 months ±21 
as a licensed radar operator in the J^ar Bast, 

This September, his 3-year hitch nearly

Just one months later, after an exhausting trip by

The speaker was Lee Harvey Oywald, pri suspect 
in the assassination of John F. Kennedy. 

V/ith his suit of charcoal gray flannel, dark tie 
and tan cashmere sweater, Lee looked, and sounded 
like Joe College with i slight southern drawl. But 
his life hadn't been that of a typical college boy.

ment." "But," said Lee, "Even 
if I am not accepted, on no ac- 
count will I go back to the 
United States. I shall remain 
here, if necessary, as a resident 

All Soviet olTicials would 
promise at the time was that 
Lee could stay on in Russia 
whether or not he became a 
citizen. Meanwhile, they were 
"investigating the possibility 
of sending him to a Soviet 
higher technical institute." 

.^t an age when angry 
young rebels all over the 
world find release in ap'mg the 
beatniks, what brought this 
serious, soft-spoken southern 
boy to Moscow with no other 
ambition but to spend the rest 
of his life as a Soviet citizen? 
Evidently, it was a combina- 
tion of poverty, the plight of 
the U. S. Negro, and the U. S. 

"My mother," said Lee, "has 
been a worker all her life. 
. She's a good example," he 
added, "of what happens to 
workers in the United States." 
He declined to elaborate. 

"At the age of 15," he added, 
"after watching the way 
workers are treated in New 
■york, and Negroes in the 
South, I was looking for a key 
to my environment. Then I 
discovered Soci. ' t literature." 

Lee was struck, in particu- 
lar, by Marx's "Das Kapital." 
He concluded that, as an 
American, "I would become 
either a. worker exploited for 
capitalist profit; or an ex- 
ploiter or, since there arci 
m.any in this category, I'd be' 
one of the unemployed." Lee I 
'jecsme a Marxist. / 

Later, a; a Marine private; 
" JaT-' :-\:{ the Philipri'-'" ' 

he "had a chance to watch 
American militarist imperial- 
ism in action." 

Year's Plaiiiiing 

Fully a year before, Lee be- 
gan getting ready to go to 
Russia. Using a Berlitz gram- 
mar, he taught himself to read 
and wri'.e Jiussian. Never, said 
Lee, a nice-looking young man 
with gray eyes and brown 
hair, did he consider deserting 
the Marine Corps. 

Did it occur to Lee that So- 
viet ofRciais might be embar-i 
rassed 'oy his efforts to become 
a citizen of their country atl 
a moment when F-ussia 
cultivating good relations with 
the United States? 

Russian olTicials, he said, 
"don't encourage and don't dis- 
courage me.'' They warned, 
however, that neither Lee's 
wish, nor theirs, would deter- 
mine whether his citizenship 
application was to be accepted. 
They said it depended on tlie 
"over-all political atmosphere 
at the moment." Meanwhile, 
they offered Lee the sanctuary 
of a prolonged stay in the

charged, jlalied him when he 
asked to take the oath on Oct.

Iin: MO^::^.C;^^ NOVEMBER 1959 

(Miss Johnson's own thoughc nc baglnhing) 

I have frequently thought about Oswald in connection with doing 
an article on defectors to the Soviet Union. Most of the defectors 
who came to Moscow while I was a correspondent there (1958-1960) came 
because of personal troubles they were having at home. They did not 
come or purport to come for reasons of ideology. Oswald was such an 
exception to the general run of defectors that I had been thinking 
about him ever since. I thought that the unideological quality of most 
of the defectors was a symptom of what had happened to the Soviet Union 
itself. It no longer seems to appeal to potential defectors for 
ideological or idealistic reasons. The type of person who is attracted 
to Soviet Russia today reveals a good deal about the Soviet Union 
itself. The Russians had wanted one or two defectors from the United 
States exhibition of 1959 to counter the negative propaganda they had 
been suffering from the more or less frequent defection of East bloc 
persons to the West. But they were not eager to have such defectors 
as Oswald. They can take them or leave them and at a moment of history 
like 1959 (the spirit of Camp David), could even be embarrassed by them. 
The motives of a man like Oswald might be jejeune but they are more 
idealistic than those of most defectors nowadays. Precisely because 
Johnson (Priscilla) Exhibit No. 5 


- 2 - 

they are realistic, however, people like Oswald are tricky and hard to 
handle. The Russians don't fully understand or trust the person who 
comes to them out of self-styled idealistic motives. This may be a 
mark of the Russians' own low self-esteem. But above all, it shows 
how Soviet society itself has changed since the 1920 's or early 1930 's. 
From experience, Soviet officials know that such a person can become 
bitter and turn against them. A defector like Webster who came only 
because he was trapped in an unhappy marriage at home and fell in love 
with a Russian waitress is easier to deal with and not so hard on. the 
hosts' self-esteem. Those were the thoughts I had about Oswald after 
I had interviewed him, considerably after I interviewed him, but years 
before the assassination; they were ideas I had noted down with the 
aim of writing a piece on how the changing profile of the defector was 
a clexj to the changing profile of Soviet society itself. I thought, 
however, that I had not fully comprehended Oswald. As he was the key 
to the piece and the inspiration of it, I had not written the article. 
But I had thought of Oswald often.

The interview took place about November 12th or 13th, 1959, on 
what I believe was a Monday night. 

Lee Harvey Oswald, 20, of Fort Worth, Texas, born in New Orleans, 
went to the United States Embassy on October 31, and 

JissolvcU i.iy /jucrican citizcuahip as much as they would 
let me at that time--! did request that my citizenship be 
dissolved. The Embassy officials did not allow me to swear 
an oath renouncing citizenship. They refused to allow me 
to take the oath at that time. They said they would not 
allow me to act without confirmation of my Soviet citizen- 
ship. I relinquished my passport and they would not act 
unless my Soviet citizenship was confirmed. 

This is what he said first. I asked him about the official Soviet 

attitude and he said: 

The Russians had confirmed that I would not have to 
leave the Soviet Union or be forced to go even if the 
Supreme Soviet refuses my request for Soviet citizenship. 
They have said they are investigating the possibilities 
of my continuing my education at a Soviet institute. 

And then he said at 17 he had entered the Marine Corps and been dis- 
charged in September, having spent 14 months in Japan, the Philippines, 
Indonesia, and Formosa, that he was a radar operator, and that he had 
finished his high school education in the Marine Corps. His birthdate 
was October 18, 1939. He said he had been in the Marines 2 years, 
9 months, 3 days, overseas 1 year, 2 months, 24 days. He said he had 
been born in New Orleans, spent his childhood in Louisiana and Texas, 
spent 2 years in New York, and then gone back to Louisiana, enlisted 
in Dallas. He said his father died before he was bom. "I believe he 
was an insurance salesman." (This, in response to my question as to 
Johnson (Priscilla) Exhibit No. 5 — Continued

what his father did. I v/as struck by his vagueness.) He said he had 
one brother, that the Marines had given him a good conduct medal, and 
that his mother was alive and living in Fort Worth. Then he said he 
had started learning Russian a year ago "along vith my other preparations" 
for coming to the Soviet Union. He said he had been able to teach 
himself to read and write Russian from Berlitz but that he still had 
trouble speaking the language. (I believe he spoke very little Russian 
at that time.) I asked him what method of Berlitz was he using, was 
he using text books, or was he actually attending classes, and he said 
he had both practice in speaking the language and a teacher, but he 
was either being vague or elusive as to how he learned Russian. Perhaps 
he was bored with just telling me about that. I asked him how he 
financed his trip to the Soviet Union and he said he came on money 
which he saved while in the Marine Corps. I asked him if he had made 
or was going to make any formal statement about his defection and the 
reasons for it, and he said he would not. Hesaid that if the Embassy 
had not told people about his defection (the American Embassy) he would 
never have said anything to anybody. But since they had, he was giving 
me an interview because 

I would like to give my side of the story--! would like to 
give people in the United States something to think about. 

(In retrospect, that is an important remark. It may have some bearing 
on his motives in the assassination. Also it reveals his sense that the

Er.ibassy might be persecuting him, might be spreading unpleasant reports 

abou^ him.) He said. 

Once having been assured by the Russians that I would not 
have to return to the United States, come what may, I assumed 
it would be safe for me to give my side of the story. 

(So long as he felt there was any chance that he might have to go back 
to the United States, he apparently did not want to jeopardize his chances 
of staying in the Soviet Union by talking to a foreign correspondent,) 
Until they assured him that he could remain in the Soviet Union, "there 
was always the possibility that my visa would not be extended," The 
Russians had told him that a special law had to be passed by the Supreme 
Soviet making him a Soviet citizen. There had been a Supreme Soviet 
session in late October. It had taken no action on Oswald's citizen- 
ship and he appeared disappointed by that and worried. He said that 
Soviet officials had warned him that 

It is not my wish nor even that of Soviet officials, but 
the over-all political atmosphere, that will determine 
whether I can become a citizen. My citizenship may take 
years but I am safe in the Icnowledge that I can have a 
prolonged stay. 

Then I asked him what position the American Embassy had taken on his 

defecting and he said: 

They warned me about the trouble I could get into: 
(1) At first they tried to discourage me; (2) I asked to 
be allowed to take oath renouncing citizenship and they 
made excuses so as to refuse to let me take the oath. They 
said I should come back fully knowing that I cannot get 
into the Embassy without a passport; 

Johnson (Priscill^v) Exhibit No. 5^ — Continued 


- 6 

(Oswald had handed in his passport t;o the Embassy, in fact he could 
get into the Eiubassy as an obvious foreigner without the passport but 
this v;hole passage is indicative of his bitterness at the Embassy) 

(3) ac CUe Ciiae I became a flovio '- r.itis^en thon ^■'niy 
government" (the Soviet government) v/ill handle my 
■renunciation through the usual diplomatic channels. 

Then I guess he said he was bitter that the American Embassy refused 

to take his oath. 

I was there on Saturday, October 31st. They re- 
fused to take the oath on the ground that the consular 
officer needed time to get the papers together.' I told 
them I wanted to go through v/ith the formalities then and 
there. I can't be too hard on them but they are acting 
in an illegal way. He (the U.S. Consul) is supposed to 
carry that formality through. On November 1st 1 wrote a 
letter of protest to the American Ambassador on the way 
Snyder carried out his duties and I get this letter back. 

And then he quoted me the letter: 

It is a principle of the American Government that 
the right of expatriation is a natural and inherent right 
of any person and that the manner prescribed by law for 
the renunciation of American citizenship is the execution 
of oath before a diplomatic or consular officer of the 
United States in the established form. 

You are again informed that you may appear at the 
Embassy at any time during normil business hours and re- 
quest that the Embassy prepare che necessary documents 
for the renunciation of citizenship. 

(I don't know whether he showed this letter to me or cited it from 

memory.) Next, I asked him the attitude of the Russians. Were they 

encouraging him or were they discouraging him to defect? He replied: 

Johnson (Priscilla) Exhibit No. 5 — Continued 


- 7 - 

The Russians are Creatine it like a lc3al formality. 
The don't encourage you and they don't discourage you. 
They do of course warn you that it is not easy to be ac- 
cepted as a citizen of the Soviet Union. But even if I 
am not accepted I would not consider returning to the 
United States. 

I then a^akud him about his financca, ho had bousht tha $30 a 

day Intourist vouchers and whether he had been able to afford it. He 

said he had bought ten days' Intourist vouchers. He said, 

I am paying the standard room and food rate. I want to 
make it clear that they are not sponsoring me (financially). 

And he repeated "they are investigating the possibility of my studying." 

He had indicated that he had been irapatient to get out of the l-larines 

to come to Moscow and I asked him whether he had ever been tempted by 

the idea of deserting the Marines. He said, 

I didn't desert because (1) it is illegal; (2) for 
financial reasons; and (3) you can't get a passport while 
you are in the Marines. 

I asked him why he hadn't resigned from the Marines since he was in 

such a hurry to get to Russia, and he said "you can't resign of course 

(he laughed rather bitterly at this point) --^ that is for officers." 

He said, "I never seriously considered deserting," Then I asked him 

(I guess I had in mind that he might be a publicity seeker), would you 

mind if anybody ever knew about your deciding to defect? He replied; 

My family and my friends in the Marines never know 
my feelings about communism even though I spent 2 years 
preparing to come here. These preparations consisted 
mostly of reading. It took me two years to find out how 
to do it. 

Johnson (Priscilla) Exhibit No. 5 — Continued 


- 8 - 

I asked him how he found out. He said it wasn't hard. I asked him if 
anybody helped him. He refused to name any person or institution who 
had helped him. 

QvtPottani Did Infcourisfe know of hifi plane to defect at the tima 
he arrived in the Soviet Union? 

Answer: "I won't say." 

But he said he had had an interview with an official of the Soviet 

Government a few days after his arrival in Moscow. He would not say 

who the official was or v/hat agency he represented. Oswald said he had 

left New Orleans September 19th, he thought. Anyway it was a Friday, . 

by ship. He had spent 12 days sailing to LeHavre, from there he booked 

a flight to Helsinki where he bought vouchers at $30 a day, (This 

implies he got a visa in Helsinki.) From Helsinki he went by train 

to Koscow where for the first 10 days he had been living on Intourist 


For the pas_C 2 years I have been waiting to do th_is 
one thing. /Here he raised his voice and gestured_^/ For 
2 years I was waiting to leave the Marine Corps and get 
enough money to come. I have had practical experience in 
the world. I am not an idealist completely. I have had a 
chance to watch American railitarist imperialism in action. 

He told me he had become a Marxist when he was 15. (My query -- why?) 

I had discovered socialist literature at that time. 
Then I spent 5 years reading socialist literature observ- 
ing: the treatment of minority groups in America: Communists, 
negroes, and the workers especially. Watching the treatment 
of v/orkers in New York and observing the fact that they are 
exploited. I had read about it in socialist literature and 
I saw that the description given in this literature was quite

correct. I sav I vould become either a vorker exploited 
for capitalist profit or an exploiter, or, since there are 
many in the category, I vould he one of the unemployed. 
>^ decision was unemotional, and not set off hy any fight 
vith my ATife since I have no vife. perhaps either I or 
Embassy officials had told him that most defectors had 
personal problems at home_^ At 15 I vas looking for some- 
thing that vould give me the key to my environment. My 
mother has been a vorker all her life. All her life she 
had to produce profit for capitalists. She is a good 
example of vhat happens to vorkers in the United States . 

I asked him vhat her vork vas and he refused to say. Trying to 

ascertain vhat he meant by his last remark I asked vhether his mother 

vas old beyond her years or vorn out, and his reply vas "that is the 

us\ial end of people in the United States, isn't it?" He added: 

It's the end of everyone in every society. The 
question is vhy they end up that vay, for vhom and under 
vhat system they vork; surely it is the duty of everyone 
to vork, 

(Here he expanded on the idea that it is better to end up vorn and 

tired vorking in the Soveit Union for the benefit of all of society 

than to end up the same vay in the United States vorking for one 

private employer. He prefaced his remarks vith "I don't claim to be 

an intellectual genius.") Tlien he vent on in his philosophy; 

I believe that sooner or later communism vill replace 
capitalism. Capitalism is a defensive ideology, vhereas 
comm\inism is aggressive. Communism is an ideology vhich 
implants itself in every system and vhich grovs , 

In the next sentence he raised his voice: 

I cannot live in the United States. I shall remain here, 
if necess-ary, as a resident alien, 

Johnson (Priscilla) Exhibit No. 5 — Continued 


- 10 - 

I asked him vhat was this socialist literature he had" read. 

He said rather wearily, "Marks and Engels." Which works by Marks 

and Engels? "The standard works." I specifically asked if he had 

read anything by Engels and he could not name any. Then he said 

he had read works by American Comraunists . So I asked him to npme 

what works and he again refused to say which works. (l have the 

impression, in retrospect, that he had made a point of not naming 

anyone who might have inspired him, either in person or by their 

books, to defect, but that he had at least had advice from somewhere. 

He seemed almost to hint at this . ) Then I asked him whether he had 

ever seen anything of the American socialists or thought of trying to 

reform American society through them? His reply was: 

The American socialists are to be shunned by anyone 
who is interested in progressive ideology. It is a 
dormant, flag-waving organization. 

Nor had he had any contact with the American Communists, he remarked. 

He said emphatically: "I never saw a Communist in my life. Only 

through reading Communist literature and observing American reality 

did I conclude that Communism was best for me personally." 

Then the conversation turned to reasons for his hatred of the 

United States. These reasons were: 

(l) Segregation . I was brought up like any southern 
boy to hate negroes. Then (2) socialist literature opened 
my eyes to the economic reasons for hating negroes. It is 
so that wages can be kept low. (3) My experience in Japan 
and the Philippines, where Americans are categorically hated 
for their militarist imperialism . You'd expect to see it in 

Johnson (Priscilla) Exhibit No. 5 — Continued 

744-731 O— 64— vol. XX 21 301 

- 11 - 

Japan. But if you've ever seen the Naval Ease at Subic 
Bay in the Philippines you'd know vha^t I mean. 

Ho said he had sympathized vith Communist elements there and with 

their hatred of Americans . 

AiriQriccuaa look upon nl,! foreion poopXon as nomothing 
to he exploited for profit. The only Filipinos who are 
well off are those who cooperate with the Americans. 

He said he had "been part of an Indonesian invasions force in March 

1958 when there had been a 

Communist inspired social turnover. We sat off the coast 
loaded with ammunition and that was enough for me. Also 
in the Suez crisis la 195^ we were told we might have to 
go in.. 

So I asked him if this was how he felt about the Marines, why had 

he joined in the first place? He said, "I went into the Marines be- 

. cause we were poor and I didn't want to be a burden on my family." 

I asked him his impression of living standards in the Soviet Union 

and whether his first-hand observations had in any way effected his 

convictions about socialism. And his reply was, "They don't have as 

many hot water heaters and meat pies here but they will in 20 years, 

through an economic system which is leaving the United States far 

behind. Any material shortcomings I might see here caruaot influence 

me to return." Then I must have asked him whether it was Soviet social 

theory or Soviet successes, such as Sputnik and rapid industrialization, 

that had attracted him most. He replied: "It is the social system, not 

the successes, that attracts me." "At the same time, "he added, "the Soviet

Union would undoubtedly surpass the United States in terms of 
economic success." (During the course of the interview I had been 
struck by the fact that he seemed to spend his days sitting alone 
in his hotel room. He told me he had not wandered around the city 
very much, and the only expedition he had made by himself had been 

to Detsky Mir, a children's department store two blocks away, where 

he said he had bought an ice cream cone or tea. He was impressed by 

the size of the crowds there, and seemed rather proud that he had been 

able to manage even so small an excursion. In other words, I got 

the impression throughout the interview that he felt rather helpless 

in Moscow, had seen very little of the city and in fact was markedly 

uninterested in learning about everyday life, conditions or people 

in the country he had striven so long to get to.) 

I asked him what had struck him most in the Soviet Union and what 

he had seen there. He had been struck by "the love of art for art's 

sake" in the Soviet Union, As for what he had seen, he said he had 

seen the usual tourist attractions, had been in peoples homes and seen 

the whole city of Moscow. But he declined to name anything specific 

and my impression was he had seen very little, so I asked him his 

overall impression of Moscow. 

Moscow is an impressive city because the energy put 
out by the Government is all used toward peaceful and 
ciiltural purposes. People here are so well-off and happy 
and have a lot of faith in the future of their country. 
Material poverty is not to be seen here. 

Johnson (Priscilla) Exhibit No. 5 — Continued 


- 13 - 

I, knoving many Russians vho vould have given anything to live in 

the United States, asked him the reaction of any Russians he had 

met vhen he told them his decision to defect. He said: 

The Russians sympathize and understand. But they ask 
mo why and a3?d very curious •* But thay understand vhen X 
' speak of the idealistical /sicT" reasons that have hrought 
me here, vhereas an American woiold not understand. 

He stressed that these Russians that he had met were extremely in- 
terested in the material situation of workers in the United States, 
(l suspected a little that he wanted to "be treated as something rather 
special and so I asked him if the Russians he met paid him any special 
attention or made a "big fuss over him. His answer was "No. They 
d. n't treat me as any celebrity. ") 

These are my own observations in the course of the interview: 
He had repeatedly referred to the Soviet Government as "my 
Government." He said that because of his ann.oyance with the American 
Embassy he would not set foot in the Embassy again. I must have 
suggested it some point in the interview that he was defeating his 
own purpose, that by refusing to set foot in the Embassy out of 
pique, he was unable to take the oath renouncing citizenship. He 
justified his refusal to set foot in the Embassy by saying:- 

I have already axed /sic/ them to prepare the papers, 
I am sure that if I did enter the Embassy they would just 
give me the same run-around as before." 

■ (it was in fact his refusal to go back to the Embassy to take the 

oath that, so far as I know, made it possible forhim later to return tc

the United States. I doubt that he vas consciously avare that he 
vas leaving himself this loophole but he may have had some semi- 
conscious awareness of it.) He stressed that it vould be an honor 
to acquire Soviet citizenship. I must have asked him vhy in his 
view the Embassy would be trying to give him what he called the run- 
aro\md. He called it "a prestige and labor -^saving device." Again I 
asked him the difference between exploitation of the wage earner in 
the Soviet Union and the United States since both countries needed 
capital for industrial investment and he had already agreed that 
industrialization was a good thing. He replied that people in the 
Soviet Union, as in the United States, get a wage. But the profit 
they produce is used to benefit all the people, and not just a single 
employer. They have an economic system that is not based on credit 
or speculation. 

My own note to myself in the stage of the interview which was 
toward the end that he has a very primitive -understanding of economics. 
Referring to his defection, he said "my reasons are very strong and 
^od to me." He said he had given his passport to the American Embassy 
along with both verbal and written statements. He said he did not 
recommend defection for everybody. He said it meant "coming into a 
new country, always being the outsider, always adjusting, but I know 
now that I will never have to return to the United States, I believe 
I am doing right." He said he had been a Marine private, had to get 
out before his three years were over, had been discharged September 11

"because of dependency, that his mother vas ill, that her situation 
vas the climax of that of the working person in the United States, 
that her health vas poor and that she vas living in Fort Worth vith 
his "brother. He said that she had been trying to phone him in his 
room at the Metropole hotel, "begging him not to defect, but that 
he just let the telephone ring. ,

Priscilla Johnson 

What a long, private interview revealed 
to one reporter about the troubled 
personality of President Kennedy's 
accused assassin. 

^LJ'n a frosty November evening four years ago, 
I sat in my Moscow hotel room while a twenty- 
year-old American explained in a soft Southern 
accent his desire to defect to Russia. With his 
pale, rather pleasant features and his dark flannel 
suit, the young man looked like any of a dozen 
college boys I had known back home. His name 
was Lee Harvey Oswald. 

I had sought him out a few hours earlier on 
the advice of an American colleague in Moscow. 
A boy named Oswald was staying at my hotel, the 
Metropol, my friend remarked casually. He was 
angry at everything American and impatient to 
become a Soviet citizen. "He won't talk to any of 
as," my colleague added, suggesting that, as a 
■/Oman, I might have better luck. 

An American defector was always good copy 
for a reporter in Moscow, and I had knocked, 
rather timidly, at Oswald's room late that after- 
noon. After what I had been told, I fully expected 
to be turned away. Instead the young man who 
opened the door readily assented to an interview. 
He promised with a smile that he would be at my 
]:oom at nine o'clock in the evening. 

He came at nine and stayed until two or three 

in the morning. Throughout our conversation he 
sat in an armchair, sipping tea from a green 
ceramic mug. More tea bubbled softly on a tiny 
electric burner in the corner. Except for a small 
gesture of one hand or an occasional tightening 
of the voice, Oswald's manner was unemphatic. 
His words seemed chosen to rule out even a hint 
of emotion. Yet in the notes I made as we talked 
I find, years later, the repeated marginal reminder 
to myself, "He's bitter." 

In spite of his conventional appearance, I found 
Oswald, from the outset, extraordinary. From ex- 
perience I knew just how formidable the long 
trip from the United States to Moscow can be, 
even if the traveler has money and a command 
of the Russian language. Here was a boy of twenty 
who, with only the money he had been able to 
save in less than three years as a Marine Corps 
private, had come six thousand miles with no 
thought but to live out his life in a country he 
had never seen, whose language he knew only 
slightly, and whose people he knew not at all. It 
was, I thought, a remarkable act of courage or 

I was touched by something homemade about 
him : the way he had tried, as he told me, to teach 
himself Russian alone at night in his Marine Corps 
barracks, using a Berlitz grammar; and how he had 
been reading economics on his own ever since he 
had discovered Marx's Daa KapitcU at the age of 
fifteen. I saw him as a little lost boy and, as such 
boys often are, rather lonely and proud. 

Johnson (Priscilla) Exhibit No. 6 



Finally, Oswald impressed me because he was 
{lie first and, .is it turned out; the only "ideo- 
logical" defector I met in Moscow. Of the two or 
three other American defectors I encountered, 
none claimed to be motivated by a belief in com- 
munism. All appeared to be fleeing some obvious 
per.sonal difficulty, such as an unhappy marriage 
back home. "My decision is not an emotional one," 
Oswald insisted. He was acting, he maintained, 
fldlely eut ot an Intellectual cenvletlen that Marx- 
ism was the only just way of life. For this alone 
he was memorable. In the months, and years, that 
followed our conversation, I had thought of him 
often, hoping one day to write a profile of this 
highly unusual defector. I, never wrote it, how- 
ever, for I felt that the key to this curious boy 
had eluded me. 

Dismally Lonely 

J. have suggested that nothing about Osw.ild was 
more striking than his burial of the emotional 
factor — a denial, almost, that he had any feelings 
at all. And yet, looking back, I have two conflicting 
recollections. One is that he was struggling to 
hide his feelings from himself. The other is of 
emotion that would not be hidden. It was the 
counterpoint between the two, I suppose, that 
gave me a sense that there were gaping chinks in 
his armor and that he was too frail, psychologi- 
cally, for what he had set out to do. 

Among the feelings Oswald could not conceal 
was anxiety as to whether Kremlin officials would 
grant his request for Soviet citizenship, and 
whether his funds would stretch until he could go 
to work or become a state-supported student at a 
Soviet technical institute. Another was< anger, 
directed mainly, at the time, against officials of 
the U. S. Embassy in Moscow. These officials, 
Oswald felt, had stalled him when he tried to take 
an oath renouncing his American citizenship. 
Here the tension between his feelings and his 
effort to suppress them became articulate: "I 
can't be too hard on them. But they are acting in 
an illegal way." 

He also felt strongly about his mother. About 
his childhood Oswald was reticent to the point of 
mystery. He would only say that he grew up first 
in Texas and Louisiana and had then gone for two 
years to New York City with his mother. He 
refused even to say what section of the city he 
had lived in. Of teachers, or of friends he had 
played with there, he said not a word. Only that, 
in New York, "I had a chance to watch the treat- 
ment of workers, the fact that they are exploited. 

I had been bi'ought up, like any Southern boy, to ■ 
hate Negroes." When, at fifteen, "I was looking 
for a key to my environmerjt, I discovered socialist 
literature. I saw that thg description it gave of 
capitalist conditions was quite correct. It opened 
my eyes to the economic reasons for hating 
Negroes : so that wages eiin be kept low. I became 
a Marxist." To me, it^ was as though Oswald 
wanted to convince us both that he had never 
had a childhood, that he had been all his life a 
machine, calibrating social justice. 

About his father he was so evasive that I was 
nonplused. "My father," he told me, "died before 
I was born. I believe he was an insurance sales- 
man." That was all. Not another word could I 
pry out of him. 

He sounded quite different when it came to his 
mother. She was ill, (^wald told me, living in 
Fort Worth with hla brother. "My mother has 
been a worker all her li^e," he went on, "having to 
produce profit for capitalists. She's a good ex- 
ample of what happens to workers in the United 
States." He refused to specify what work she 
had actually been doing. I asked whether his 
mother was disillusioned, like him, or worn-out 
beyond her years? "That's the usual end of people 
in the United States, isn't it?" he countered. Then 
came the denial of his own indignation. "It's the 
end of evei*yone, in any country. It's a question of 
why they end up that way. For whom and under 
what system they work." In spite of Oswald's 
effort to depersonalize, to blame his mother's suf- 
fering on Marxist "social processes," I felt that 
'here was a bitterness too deep for tears. Shortly 
after this he remarked: "I cannot live in the 
United States, so I shall remain here, if necessaiy, 
as a resident alien." Earlier he had told me that 
even if Soviet officials refused to grant his appli- 
cation for citizenship, "I would not consider re- 
turning to the United States." Throughout the 
interview he referred to the Soviet government 
as "my government." 

Since Oswald had traveled thousands of miles 
to build a new life in Russia, I expected that he 
would be wasting no time learning all he could 
about the country. He would be anxious, I as- 

PrisciUa Johnson ihay be the only person who

gettinp her M.A. in Soviet studies at Harvard, she

Senator Kennedy as his researcher on Southeast 
Asia. Her meeting with Osxoald occurred during 
her ttoo-year stay in Moscow as correspondent 
for North American Newspaper Alliance. She is 
note in Cambridge, Massachusetts, at work on two 
books on Soviet affairs.

8umed, to sec how tHe socialist economic theories 
he believed in were working out in practice. That 
was where I had my biggest surprise. The life 
he was leading in Moscow was a dismally lonely 
one. Most of each diiy he spent sitting alone in his 
hotel i-oom waiting for the telephone to ring. If 
he thought it was his mother calling from Fort 
Worth to beg him to come home, he wouldn't 
answer. Every time it rang, though, he hoped it 
was some Soviet ofllclal calling to announce that 
his request for citizenship had been granted. 

Oswald seemed to feel helpless in the Russian 
language. "I was able to teach myself to read 
and write," he said. "But I still have trouble 
speaking." The only expedition he had taken on 
his own in nearly a month in Moscow had been a 
walk to Detsky Mir, a children's department store 
only two blocks from our hotel. He seemed proud 
that, in the scramble of Soviet shoppers, he had 
managed to elbow his way to the fourth floor 
buffet and buy himself an ice cream cone. He 
insisted that he had seen the "whole city of 
Moscow" and "the usual tourist attractions." But 
he would not name a single landmark he had 
actually visited. For all his struggle to get to 
Moscow and his efforts to stay, he appeared to 
lack even the curiosity of the ordinary American 

Although Oswald claimed that he had visited 
Russians in their homes, his vagueness left me 
uncertain as to whether he had actually struck 
up a single unofficial friendship. He would only 
say; "Moscow is an impressive city because the 
energy put out by the government is all used 
toward peaceful and cultural purposes. People 
her are so well off and happy and have so much 
faith in the future of their country. Material pov- 
erty is not to be seen here." These generalizations 
and, above all, Oswald's ovra walled-in existence 
led me to conclude that he was strangely blind. 
Not only was he not looking at the life all 
around him. He was making an heroic effort not 
to see it. 

I had a similar surprise when it came to his 
grasp of Marxist economics. For hours we dis- 
cussed this; apart from his defection, it was the 
topic that seemed to interest him most. Worried 
about him now, I tried to warn him of the dis- 
ar_ ointment which I felt he might encounter 
once he came in contact with Soviet life as it 
really is. I argued that there are poverty and in- 
justice in any country, including the Soviet Union, 
which is undergoing rapid industrialization. The 
worker has to be paid less than the value of what 
he has created if there is to be capital for new 
investment. Oswald agreed. To him, however, the 

social system for vhich this injustice is endured 
was the crucial thipg. Soviet workers, like Ameri- 
cans, he observed, %re paid a wage. But the profit 
they produce is us^d to benefit all [here he gave 
one of his rare ^vea for emphasis] of the 
people. They have -an economic system that is 
not based on credit and speculation." Somehow, 
after listening awhUe, I concluded that his views 
were rigid and naive, and that he did not know 
his Marxism very well. 

In one sense, however, his outlook seemed to 
fit that of orthodox Marxism. Not once in all our 
hours of conversation did Oswald so much as 
mention a single political leader, not President 
Eisenhower, nor Fidel Castro, nor then Senator 
John F. Kennedy, nor Josef Stalin, nor Nikita 
Khrushchev,' nor anybody else. If he saw indi- 
vidual statesmen as either heroes or villains, he 
certainly gave no sign. On the contrary. For him 
impersonal Marxist social categories — "exploita- 
tion of the worker," the "capitalist system of 
profits," "militarist imperialism" — were explana- 
tion enough of the world's ills. 

Destroying an Abstraction 

i3 ince this brings us to the assassination, I am 
impressed by the terrible irony of that deed, if 
Oswald was, in fact, the assassin. For Marxism 
has traditionally rejected assassination as a 
weapon of political struggle. According to Marx- 
ist philosophy, those whom we call leaders only 
appear to lead. In reality it is they who are led by 
the historical forces around them. The latter, in 
turn, are determined by the economic modes of 
production. Thus, in the view of Lenin, assassina- 
tion was at best irrelevant. I doubt that Oswald 
was aware that he was violating Lenin's writings 
on individual terror when — and if — he pulled the 
trigger last November 22. I suspect, rather, that 
he was not Marxist enough to realize that his was 
the ultimate anti-Marxist act. 

I should like to make another observation that 
is outside my recollections. Oswald's defection to 
Soviet Russia could, as it happened, have been a 
dry run for the assassination, if he was — again — 
the assassin. For both actions he had to acquire 
a skill: in the one case, Russian, which he had 
learned imperfectly at the time I met him ; in the 
other, marksmanship, which he evidently mas- 
tered much better. Both deeds took months to 
prepare. For the first he spent, as he told me, two 
years saving money, learning how to get cheaply 
to Russia, where to apply for a Soviet visa 
(Helsinki), and how to go about contacting the 

Johnson (Priscilla) Exhibit No. 6 — Continued 


proper Soviet officials once he arrived in Moscow. 
For the later deed he had to purchase a rifle in- 
conspicuously, wait for Kennedy to visit Dallas 
and for a route to be announced, arrange to 
station himself along it without arousing sus- 
picion, and so forth. Lee Oswald was a failure 
at nearly everything he tried. But two supremely 
difficult feats he did accomplish. I saw two quali- 
ties in him that could have been crucial to his 
8ueees8 In eueh; singrlo^^indodneBs and aeei'etlve> 

"For the past two years," Oswald told me, 
raising his voice a little, "I have been waiting to 
do this one thing [defect to Russia]. For two 
years I was waiting to leave the Marine Corps." 
Throughout those two years, during which he had 
been saving money and learning the mechanics 
of defection, he had been so single-minded that 
he had oven tnkon cnre to "form no emotional 
attachments" to girls, since such attachments 
might weaken his resolve. 

Throughout those two years, moreover, he evi- 
dently concealed his intention to defect from all 
wh'^ were closest to him. No one at home suspected 
which way his ideas were tending even when, at 
the age of fifteen, he began reading Marxist 
literature. "My family and my friends in the 
Marines," he explained, "never knew my feelings 
about communism." Yet he had harbored those 
feelings for five years, and for the past year 
had been studying Russian at night in a Marine 
Corps barracks with inquisitive buddies all 
around him! 

If Oswald was seci'etive about his personal life, 
refusing even to reveal to me how his mother 
earned a living, what section of New York City 
he had lived in, or how many brothers he had, 
he was equally evasive about the circumstances 
of his defection. He declined, for example, to say 
whether he had informed Intourist, the Soviet 
travel agency, of his intention to remain in 
Russia, how much he was paying for his room at 
the Metropol, who, if anyone, back in the United 
States had advised him on how to go about defect- 
ing, what Soviet government agencies he was 
dealing with in his request for citizenship, or 
even what books by American communist authors 
he had read. While discretion was no doubt ap- 
propriate in response to some of these questions, 
he was, I felt, making mountains of secrecy where 
other boys might have made a molehill. This tight- 
lipped, conspiratorial attitude that was already so 
pronounced when I met him could, however, have 
been invaluable during the long months prepar- 
ing for the act of November 22. 

To enter again into the realm of speculation, I 

bij Priscilla Johnson 49 

should like to mention that from the moment he 
was arrested on November 22 it seemed to me 
unlikely that Oswald would confess to shooting 
the President. Unless, of course, his resistance 
were broken by extraordinary methods. If I 
understood him at all, I believe that refu.nal to 
cooperate with authority, expressed in a refusal 
to confess, would have been nearly as much a part 
of the social protest h€ was trying to make as the 
act of assnsalnatlon Itiielf, In my oplnl«n, tho two 
would have gone inseparably together. 

Another of the ironies in which this case 
abounds has to do, it seems to me, with Oswald's 
attitude toward Kennedy as a man. I believe that 
Oswald may well have been less jealous of 
Kennedy's dazzling personal attributes — his 
wealth and good looks, his happy fortune in 
general — than many men to whom the idea of 
fihooting the President never even occurred. 
Oswald was preoccupied with himself, not with 
other men. The good fortune of others, their 
riches and fine features, did not define him to 
himself as poor or ugly. Less than many men did 
Oswald strike me as "desiring this man's art 
and that man's scope." I believe that the John 
Kennedy he killed was not, to him, another 
human being who was richer and better endowed 
than he, but a surprisingly abstract being, a 
soulless personification of authority. (In a scorn- 
ful aside about Marine Corps officers Oswald indi- 
cated to me his contempt for anyone in authority 
over him.) That Kennedy, perhaps more than any 
world leader of his time, happened also to wear 
authority with a gaiety and grace that might well 
have aroused the envy of others is probably be- 
side the point in assessing the motives of Lee 
Harvey Oswald. 

The Desire to Stand Out 

XnJ matter how steadfastly he might have re- 
sisted the efforts of his inquisitors to break him 
down, I believe that Oswald yearned to go down 
in history as the man who shot the President. 
Even if he would not and could not confess, he 
had, at least, to be caught. For if there was one 
thing that stood out in all our conversation, it was 
his truly compelling need — could it have been a 
response to some childhood humiliation? — to 
think of himself as extraordinary. A refusal to 
■ confess, expressed in stoic and triumphant silence, 
would have fitted this need. In some twisted way, 
it might also have enabled him to identify with 
other "unjustly" persecuted victima, such as Sacco 
and Vanzetti and the Rosenbergs. 

Johnson (Priscilla) Exhibit No. 6 — Continued 




While in one sense Oswald may have wanted to 
go down in history with a question mark over his 
guilt, surely in another sense he had to be marked 
for all time as the man who killed President 
Kennedy. Conflicting as these two needs — to be 
caught, yet not to c0nfess — may appear, in reality 
they were part of a single compelling desire: 
the desire to stand out from other men. 

To the trained psychiatric eye this desire must, 
I believe, have been written nil over Leo Oitwuld. 
It became apparent to me, however, only after I 
had asked several questions arising from a sus- 
picion I had that, for all his unassuming appear- 
ance, Oswald was merely another publicity seeker. 
How, I asked, did ordinary Russians view his 
defection? "The Russians I meet," he replied, 
"don't treat me as any celebrity." Somehow the 
way he said it made me feel that to himself, Lee 
Oswald really was a celebrity. 

Later on, I asked Oswald if he would suggest 
defection as a way out for other young men who, 
like himself, might be dissatisfied with conditions 

back home? "I don't recommend defection for 
everyone," he warned. 

It means, he went on, "coming to a new 
country, always being the outsider, always 
adjusting." Lesser men, he seemed to imply, 
might not be up to it. But he was. 

As a means, however, of proving his "different- 
ness," if that is what it was, defection seemed to 
have failed Lee Oswald. Back in Texas, people 
forjfot ull about him. Even amonsr tho RuHHluna, 
he ceased after a while to stand out as a curiosity. 
To be marked as the extraordinary person he 
needed to be, he had to perform a yet more 
memorable, and outrageous, act. 

That Oswald did, in fact, see himself as ex- 
traordinary came out unexpectedly when I asked 
him why he had been willing to grant me an 
interview at all. I expected a simple response. 
That he was homesick, maybe, and wanted some- 
one to talk to. Instead, he surprised me. "I would 
like," he replied, "to give the people of the United 
States something to think about." 

The Man from the Alaska Highway 

by William Stafford 

SOME rainy mornings before citizens get up 
a foreigner in a white raincoat wanders 
the schoolground, appearing and reappearing, 
putting mushrooms in a plastic sack sopped with rain. 
I watch through my dim window 
wavy with water from the eaves. 

He's a road builder. He told me once 

the more a big freeway seems to wander in level 

country the more planned it is: "A straight 

road puts drivers to sleep. The knack is 

to find the curve and lean the driver's 

shoulder needs to find." 

Geese came over last night. 

Once he told me the Yukon bends millions 

of dollars worth, even without any gold. 

I looked at a map and saw that Alaska, the way 

it happens along, can never — no matter what 

anyone says — be just a state. 

Today I went out at first light. 

The road builder wasn't around, but I 

leaned with my umbrella and saw 

hundreds of mushrooms, almost hidden, 

gleaming here and there, 

nudging up through the playground.

SPEEDY JOHNSON, 5136 Horsftshoe Trail, Dallas, Texas, 
furnished the following IrsformAtion: 

On Saturday, November ?3* 1963, JOHNSON and a friend, 
IVAN T. MUNDY, were at the Turf Bar^ Ic-ated at 1515 Commerce 
Street, Dallas, Th«y had arrived at th«! Turf Bar at approximately 
1:15 p.m, and had had on© or two b<s<^rB •i<iih<9>n ^ friend, FRANK 
BELLOCCHIO, came Into the bar. He had with him a copy of the 
full page ad which had appeared In the Dallas newspaper on the 
dsy President KENNEDY arrived in Dallas, which in substance was 
highly critical of the President. JOHNSON was reading this 
article aloud while they were seated at the bar and he and 
MUNDY were discussing the article wheo, a ma-ii approached them 
from behind ar-d rerarked th-»,t he had already be'n to the 
newspaper offlca co:nc»rnJlng the article which JOHIvrSON was 
reading. At this tlm* the individual also displayed to JOHNSON 
ar.d r^NDY three polaroid photoRrsphs of a billboard calling 
for the impeachment of Chiaf Jusi-ice WARREN. He indicated 
that he had Just taken these photographs and mentioned a 
location probably in north Dallas where the billboard was 
located. There was also som.e discussion at this time concerning 
bum,per stickers calliiig for the impreachment of Chief Justice 
WAPfiEN and the ir.dlvldua.l who had apprijached JOHNSON and MUNDY 
becam* rather excited and m.ade some remarks indicating he had 
not k-Dwn these stickers hsd been on display in the Dallas 
area for a considerable length of time. The individual made 
other remarks^, exact nature not recalled, indicating that he 
was highly insensed at the critic 5 sm of Freaident KENNEDY. 
This individual then left and El.J'^H SOLOMON, operator of the 
Turf Bar then told JOHNSON and MUNDY that the indlvidiial who 
h«d been talking with them was JACK RUBY. 

JOHNSON said that neither he nor MUNDY had not 8«en 
JACK RUBY prior to this time or since and could furnish no 
additional Information conc«mlng RUBY.

Captain 0, A. JONES, Forgery oureau^ i/tu-xaa j:uj.xv;c 
Department, advised that on Novemher a^l-, 19^3^ sGuletime shortly 
before noon, acting under the instructions of, Assistant Chief 
M. W. STEVENSON, he reported to the basement of the City Hall 
building^ along with all available detective^ from various burea\is 
of the Police Department on the third floor. He stated his in- 
structions were to help in securing area for the transportation 
of LEE HARVEY OSWALD from the Dallas City Jail to the Dallas Coxinty ' 
Jail. JONES stated that specific instructions given him were to see 
that the armored truck, which was to transport OSWALD, was placed 
into position in the basement. JONES stated that additional specific • 
instructions from Chief STEVENSON and Chief BATCHELOR were to use 
the detectives vmder their supervision to keep the press and news 
media east of the basement driveway. JONES stated he instructed 
officers in getting- press media back from the pertinent area' and in 
keeping everyone back after this area was cleared. 

JONES stated that subsequently Chief STEVENSON advised 
him that the armored truck is too' large to get all the way down the 
ramp, and that they were going to place two cars behind the truck, 
which was to remain at the entrance of the ramp facing Commerce Street. 
JONES stated, accordingly, at this time two cars were moved onto the. 
ramp behind the truck, and it was necessary for officers to clear the 
path for these cars to pull onto the ramp from the underground parking 
area and to back into position at the corridor entrance. JONES stated 
at this time he was standing approximately on the east side of the ramp 
and a little south at the point where the corridor enters the ramp 
or driveway. Someone said, "Here he comes." JONES assiimed this was 
with reference to the prisoner and, accordingly, turned towards the 
car to be sure no unauthorized personnel approached them and that the 
stationed officers were in the area. He stated he then lookeii. back 
toward the east,-^^ which time he heard a shot. He did not see the 
actual shooting and had not seen JACK RUBY. in the pertinent area. He 
stated he knew JACK RUBY some ten or twelve years ago, but did not 
know him well. JONES stated he had definitely not seen RUBY in the 
City Hall building during the pertinent period of November 22-23, 19^3 • 

JOKES adde'd that when he had heard the shot he immediately 
shouted to officers to seal the exits and he ran to the acene of the 
shooting and observed RUBY in custody.

at the Commerce Street entrance to the ramp leading 
into the basement of the City Hall. He said to instruct

and for them to assist the truck back as far as possible 
down the ramp into the City Hall. He also told me to 
take any remaining detectives that were available on 
the third floor to the basement and place them any 
place they were needed in the basement to supplement .' 
the officers already stationed. Most of the detectives 
had previously been sent to the basement. I entered 
-<iSich of the bureaus except Homicide and Robbery and 
told the duty officer to have any available officers 
to report outside the Jail office and went to the 
basement. Two or three detectives accompanied me and 
remained near the Jail office. I went to the head of -j 
the ramp on Commerce Street and informed Patrolman 
Jez and one other patrolman to remain there and keep 
the way clear and to assist the armored truck in 
backing into the City Hall. I informed Captain Talbert 
of these instructions. 

"I then returned to near the Jail office and 
stationed some of the detectives'^at the doors leading . 
into the building proper, and not'iced the Press Media 
was inside the Jail off ice, but outside the admitting 
desk. I saw Assistant Chief Batchelor and Deputy 
Chie^^evenson and called Chief Batchelor 's attention 
to the people in the Jail office.. I accompanied him ^ 
inside and upon his instructions this area was cleared,. 
Upon leaving the Jail office we also had all persons 
except security personnel moved north of a line 
running east from the brick comer of the Jail office 
to the railing on the opposite side and on a line

"from this point running east to the exit lanes for 
oars from the basement to the ramp itself. 

"Deputy Chief Stevenson then approached and said 
there had been a change in plans and, as the truck 
could not get into the City Hall, they were going to 
!use two cars. At this time two police cars were 
started and brought up onto the ramp. Several officers 
had to move to allow the cars to get onto the ramp. 
I had given instructions to all officers near the Jail 
office and at the doors to allow no one in the area 
from the jail to the cars and on down the route the 
prisoner woiild take, and that the press would not be • 
allowed to approach or even to attempt to converse 
with the prisoner, and that no one was to follow until 
after the cars left the basement, 

"I was about midway between the corner of the 
Jail office and the back of the car on the ramp, 
when someone shouted "here he comes]', I turned to 
walk to the car on the ramp to make sure the way was 
clear and that officers were stationed on each side 
of the cars and all the way down the east side of the 
ramp to the cars. I saw officers along the route and 
officers on each side of the ramp near the cars and 
at the top of the ramp. I also saw Chief Stevenson on 
the ramp, so I turned to Watch the parking area in the 
basement of the City Hall, when I heard a shot. This 
was sometime shortly before noon, but I don't remember 
the exact time. I turned toward the sound of the 
shot which had come from my left and to my rear. I 
shouted to the officers to bar all exits and all ramps. 
I saw the officers closing the exits and went toward 
the scuffle where apparently officers had a nan in 
custody. As I approached the center of the scuffle 
several voices said 'It was Jack Ruby'. I do not 
know who said this, but as the prisoner was on his 
feet by this time. I could see he was Jack Ruby, whom 
Xj/'had known 10 or 12 years before as the owner of Ithe ^ 
Silver Spur, a nightclub on South Ervay. I told :the 
officers to take him to the Jail and then had other 
officers assist Lt, Swain in keeping the crowd in 
the designated area., I assisted in this measure until ']> 
after the ambulance left with Oswald and I then returned Jq\ 
to the third floor after Instructing the officers on ^!m^^

come to the third floor. After returning to the 
third floor, I' assisted in the administration offices. 

"I had not seen a man that I recognized as 
Jack Ruby in the City Hall during the period of the 
investigation, until after the shooting in the base- .

0. A. JONES, CapCain of Police, Forgery Bureau, 
Dallas Police Department, Dallas, Texas, furnished the 
following information freely and voluntarily to Special 
Agents EDWARD J. MABEY and KENNETH P. HUGHES, who identi- 
fied themselves to him as Special Agents of the FBI. Re 
was immediately advised of the nature of the investigation; 
that he did not have to make any statement, and that any 
statement he made could be used against him in a court of 
law. JONES was also advised of his right to counsel. ' 7 

Prior to 11:00 AM, on November 24, 1963, he 
was in the administration offices in the Police & Courts 
Building performing administrative duties. A little -^ 
before 11:00 AM, Deputy Chief STEVENSON told JONES to x^^ 
place two officers at the entrance of the Commerce Street • "^ '^ 
ramp to help and assist the armored car that was en route. ^"^^^ 
STEVENSON also advised JONES to take any remaining detectives ^o"^ 
that were available on the third floor to the basement and 
place them where needed. JONES and two or three other de- 
tectives, names unknown, went to the basement where JONES 
placed Patrolman JEZ and one other unidentified patrolman 
at the entrance of the ramp on Commerce Street. He also 
advised Captain TALBERT of the Chief's instructions on 
placing these two patrolmen at the entrance of the ramp 
and advised that they were not to be moved. JONES placed 
twQ detectives, names unknown, at the jail office door. 
JONES noticed that there were newsmen inside the jail ^ , 
office and called this to the attention of Assistant Chief vJ^-^ 
BATCHELOR and Deputy Chief STEVENSON. JONES, Chief ^>^^ 
BATCHELOR and some other officers removed the newsmen from N \J 
the inside of the jail office and then continued moving '^ 
these individuals down the hallway and into the basement 
area. JONES was aware of an automobile driving up the 
Main Street ramp in the \in:ong direction during the process 
of moving the press back. He later found out that the 
driver was Lieutenant R. PIERCE ^ At ^this point. Chief 
STEVENSON approached JONES and Stated that there had been 
a change in plans and that two automobiles were now going 
to be used. 'These automobiles were located behind the 
press line and were started up and ha!d to drive through the 
press line to get into position. JONES >assisted in holding 
back the press lines during this process and gave instructions 
to all. officers near the jail of fice and the doors to a],\c>^-7 r'.n

At this point, JONES noted that Lieutenant SWAIN

back the crowd and JONES gave the order to get the prisoner 
back in jail and to help Lieutenant SWAIN. JONES, himself 
helped Lieutenant SWAIN and thereafter went into the jail * 
office where he saw OSWALD on the floor with a bullet V70und 
in his stomach slightly under his left rib cage. JONES 
then left the jail office and noted that at this time the 
ambulance was arriving. He saw OSWALD taken out of the jail 
office and put into the ambulance and the ambulance start 
up the ramp. JONES noticed there was a slight delay from 
the time that OSWALD was placed in the ambulance and the 
time that it left the ramp, due to the armored car still 
being located on the ramp, JONES then placed two officers

m the swinging doors just outside the jaxl offxce ar;d 
iidvised them to let persons leave who had proper identiti- 
i^ation. At this point or just after he arrived on the 
-hird floor, JONES told Lieutenant R. E. KG KIK^^EY to get 
:en detectives and go to Parkland Hospital. JONES, himself, 
lid not see the shooting, 

JONES stated that he did know RUIiY and had 
Imown him prior to 1952, when he ran the Silver Spur, 
i night club on South Ervay, He stated that prior to 
L952 he V7as a Lieutenant covering this district and had 
^one into the Silver Spur, at the most, six times loolcing 
cor white subjects. JONES stated he lcnev7 the name JAC.C 
IU3Y, but stated it was doubtful he could connect the name 
7ith the individual without seeing his face. JONES stated 
le never worked for JACK RUBY and he did not know the names 
Df any other officers who did. 

JONES estimated there were more than fifty 
people other than officers in the basement and that there 
jere tv70 television cameras in operation and one not in 
operation. He did not know the names of any of these in- 
dividuals , 

Due to the fact that JOl^S was recalled frcm 
vacation, he was not present at any briefing on the 
security measures that were to be in effect in the basement 
on November 24, 1963. JONES knew that the officers in the 
basement vjere stopping individuals and aslcing for identifi- 
cation and, in fact, he, himself, was stepped and asked to 
produce his identification by a reserve officer. He Imev? 
of no unauthori7'="^ person in the basement, with the exception 
of JACK RUBY,v;?i> 4 .e saw after the shooting. Ke did not 
see JACK RUBY in the basement or to any individual- 
prior to the shooting. Re did not see JACK RU5Y at any time 
between November 22 and 24, 1963. He stated he is currently

perterbed at the politics of the non-political trip and, so, obviously, were 
the Democrats. There were no county or city lead -rs of Bexar County and San .

The central terminal buildinj; at the San Antonio airport vas crowded, about

Here, -Jackie; Look here, Jackie; Lobk over here, Jackie;, and as she snlled 
and waved, there v/as great applause froin the crowd , Mr, Kennedy beamed

private conversation with Sen. Ralph Yarhoxou[;h in Air Force 1. Yarborou^h 
was an invited guest of the President in the President's plane. TJurin-^ the 
interview, Sen. Yarborough took a wonderful crack at Gov.. -John B. Connally. . 
'vhen the pool report was read in the bus, the; reporters broke joat in lau.^hter 
and cheers at the Senator's rough-. troatp-.ent of the Governor. Thir wasn't 
becaUpe the reporters were on one side or the other-- or any side at all — 
but this was £,ood copy, the feud., The liberal-conservative fight vras clearly 
o;i, despite the fact that President Kennedy had cook to niake peace between 
both factions. A fairly strong wind was blowing wher. the President mounted 
the .platforta outdoors to make his speech in Gan Antonio, The. disco'^forture 
of the Party solit and the v;ind had its affect. I believe, on birr, and the 
people on the platform. They looked quite a bit unccmfortable. In Gan 
Antonio, Sen. Yarboroarh was schedule to ridp in the sa^ie car Vrith the Vice 
President, 'Irs. Yarborouj^h and Lady Bird John. The cenator refused to j^ile 
in the car and rode instead in another one. The President was unhappy. '.': cause 
of the hit li-s.. Kennedy was making San Antonio, the riale_ reporters we -e 
■anxious to get. a description, an accurate description, of what she Has

a bit, and so did Marrianne Means of McarGt. Certairly not to be ior/,f:'t '"en

on this) , the Air Force placed Albert Thonas on Air Force 2 v;ith the rest 
of the rest of the Con^^ressnen. He said that hanoened because the generals 
were In charge of it instead of the sergeants. It i\fgs another political back- 
fire as the Presidential" tour got under way in Texas » V/hen the speech '-.'as 
concluded in San Antonio, as. the reporters hurried back into the. press 
buses, and the Congressmen got into their op(;n cars, the President and his 
lady re-iained at the side of the platforr: fro'i •■.'hich the President had 
spoken. They let themselves be besieged by people anxi us to sha'-. s their 
hands an.d ask for auto:j,raphes. Mr. and 'Irs. Kennedy re.'nained there several 
ninutes, co.nplately inundated by peonle happy to see thera , up' close. It was 
late in the afternoon of Thursday i;hen our bl^ plane lumbered into the 
skies over Houston, circling, the city and setting down at the airport. '.'^ 
land just r^io.-ients Before Air Force 2. The crowd there was sizable. It r--^.n 
into the several hundreds^ It was not typical Houston weather. It was not • 
very hunid at all. It was balmy, as it ha':] bec^n in San Antonio. It obviously 
had been a warm afternoon. There vms a roped off area for reporters and 
photo grar.hers to stand, facing the. reception 'line, and as soon &i ,the Presileni

and v;ent to the place v/here Senator and Mrs. Yarborough vrere" standing. On 
n;/ vray, I apssed by the car set aside for Vice President and. Mrs. Johnson. 
Mrs. Johnson gave me a big friendly v/ink and a big "hi." The Senator and 
his wife were^standing tvro cars back. The Senators was looking terribly un- • 
comfortable. I a-;ked him about the reports that he had refused to ride with 
t ;a.Vice President in San Antonio. "That's a nistake," he said. .Havln,^ .just

had bat-n in San Antonio. The long ride in fro a the' airport to dovnto'7r, 
Houston was vc-rr pleasant and at ti::ies the sides of the road v;er; '[uite 
packed ',/itr:; people. The r.iezaanine of the Rice Hotel was odequatc-ly , set up for 
the press. Tl.ere was a lar^e room with a bar in it and a tabl'-- l-'/len with 
fine things to eat. I v/ent to a nearby room, though, having f irsi.. ■ Lalkid to 
sone of the peor^le on the Houston Press, and went to v/ork in a non which 
typp'-.T iters and good press facilities sot up. I wrote and then, dictated 
a story to 'Washington.' The story was the story of the day.' It was the story 
of political backfires and bad timing on the Presidential tour. Originally 
the President v.'as scheduled to leave the Rice Ilotel for the Albert Tho'^as 
finner at 8:-0 (check). However., it was announced after we got to the Rice 
Hotel, by Presidential press aid/e Malcoih-r. KildufT (Pierre' s second assistant' 
v7ho v;as handling all press chores on the trip), that Mrs. Kennedy -/ould 
make an appearanco with her husband on the mezzanine of the' Rice at a 
meeting of the LULACs (check). The President and his. lady arrived there about' 
8:'-tO. They vrerc ru-ming late. The Gov.'-'^rnor v;as a-'nong those vrtio had spc''en 
to the members of the LULACs in the room before the President and Mrs. 
Kennedy arrived. Mrs. Kennedy's voice was thin. It was cultured. But with 
both of those, it v.'as also very v/arn as she spoke in Spanish to the LULACS 
and they, replied in kind with a tumultuous ovation.' Since the press v/as 
crowded into a position behind- the platform and off to the platfori's side 
in the'rooij, at the, door through vrhich the President and Mrs. Kennedy would 
arrive, I got away froi.a the crowd .and walked down the' hallvray on, the mezza- 
nine floor aiid was sta ding against the wall, v/aitir.g for the .Kennedys, 
as they wal';e'l past me. The Frosident turned to no, rrrailed and said "ht:"'lo.-'

and v/ent by bus to the Hotel Texas. The President riad arrived th^re about 
an hour before us. There still vfere '-•lany people in the stroetn at the side 
of the hotel and lux the lobby itsplf was packed. It was 12:W5 a.rn. by the 
tine I got up to my room and got my lnj^;f,age, 1 had fully inth^nded to go 
to the Press Club, ac:!epting several invitations from people in the lobby — 
old friends — and especially then to 20 on to the Cellar. I had pro'nised to 
take Felton V/est to the Cellar. But I saw another pair of old friends on 
the fifth floor, as I ivas joinjj to ny room — Bill Kavrorth and his vrife. They 
asked me to stop off and have a cup of coffee v/ith them in the coffee shop 
on the lobby floor, first. \ve sat at a table with Congressman Jim Wri^^ht, 
Texas Attorney General V/a^^joner Carr and Mrs. Carr. Also present v;as Cliff 
Carter of the Vice President's staff. Ralph Yarborough was upstairs ir. his 
quarters, holding a closed meeting with his liberal su.ioorters. (He also 
v;as called in by the President and told that if he did not ride with 
Lyndon Johnson the next day in Dallas, he could walk.) Pretty soon the 
Governor came into the coffee shop and sat down at a table two tables av;ay 
from ours and he began holding forth in a conversation i-;ith a small group 
of reporters, off the record. He was asked about politics in Texas and 
was asked extensively about the rift between the liberal and conservative 
forces. During this conference, he explained that historically a man, if 
he wanted to get into politics at all in Texas, would be a Democrat until 
only the most recent of years (roughly after 1955) , and that there v/ere many 
shades of Demicrats. I7hat appeared to be a major fight to reporters from the 
East actually was standard procedure in Texas. Besides belittling the rift, 
among Democrats, he also said that Barry Goldwater of Arizona had reached 
a zenith in Texas and that the election next year would certainly be a close 
one but that President Kennedy viould ultim.ately win. The Governor went back 
upstairs shortly after two o'clockln the morning. Henry Gonzalez v;as aother 
Con=;ressman in the coffee shop tal'/'ing to his friends. Felton Jest came in 
and had bacon and eg^s, and asked if I would go with him to the Cellar. 
I told him I'd had a little too much of a day, so he went on by himself, l'j 
dawn the skies were weepy. The Pr isident originally was supposed to speak to 
a large Chamber of Commerce breakfast on the mezzamine of the Hotel Texas. 
But there had been so much insistence on the part of people in Fort '..■orth 
frora all walks of life — Jim Wright had prevailed upon the President earlier 
in the v/eek to step outside and be seen at least by the crov;d. The President 
agreed to go even further and said that he wo ild speak before the breakfast 
in the parking lot across the stro.-«t from the Hotel Texas. Hundreds packed 
into the area. Though it was raining, they began seeking good standing room 
positions even before dawn. With Jackie again getting a wonderous ovation, 
the President departed from his text, inside the hotel, saying he felt as 
he had he had felt in Paris. That he was the man who was Mrs. Kennedy's 
husband. Governor Connally. called a press conference to be held in another 
room on the mezzanine as soon as the President's ad3ress at the breakfast was 
ended. During that press conference he ans^'iered for the record many of 
the same nucstions which had b-^en ask^^d of him off the record e.^rlier in the 
morning in the coffee shop. The Governor's press conference had not beon on 
the agenda previously, and so we didn't have much time then to get to the 
i)ress buses and depart in the motorcade for Car swell air force base, and 
an unusual flight — from Fort 'Worth to Ballas. The side entrance, the 8th 
Street entrance at the Hotel Texas, was so packed v;ith people v/aiting for 
President and Mrs. Kennedy to come out that door, I decided to go out the 
main entrance, the Main Street entrance, and v/ork my v;ay around. As I was 
going around, I paused to shake hands vfith several old friends, faces which 
I hadn't seen in the past year and a half, two years or longer. I wonked my

was neyt to the President's car. This ir^s a -n^ltur of t/r^nt d',;lL,jht to the 
le'-'as Con^ressnen vho were on hand. A number of them — four or five anyway — 
f^ot out of their cars and came over to me. 'Henry Gonzalez, and Olin Teague 
both rn^kin^ quite a point of the fact that no natter v/here I go, I step in it. 
Malcol-n Kilduff, the assistant to Pierre Salinger ^ rushed up to me and said 
angrily that I vas not ^ioin^ to be able to ^'-'^ on the press goin^ out to 
Cars^.'ell Air Force Base-, He said you'll have to sit on top of the press bus 
unless you can so-iehow v/ash that s-iolT off. Kilduff vas in a ^^re^t mood that 
norin?;, because he had been among those who had gooe to the Cellar during the 
early morning hours. The President's departure roiite, ^oin.j to ^arswell, 
had caused quite a stir in Fort '.'orth. \;'e went out Henderson Av-;)",ue to 
Jacks'ooror Highway to- '7hite Settlement in the hdinky tonk region. On'^ of the 
•vhite House reporters spotted a couple of '-'omen stan-linj alongside the road 
as ve vjere on our way to Car swell and said: "Men, I fsT:^ think '-'e've .ia^t 
parsed a couple of hustlers. No, No, it couldn't be this early in the lorning.

look at faces just in pas.-;ing. One exanple v/as a large fork lift brou:j,ht to 
the side of the road as v/e were preparing to turn of" Jacksboro onto 'hite 
Settlement. Sitting on th - fork lift were Harry Rubin and George Levitan. 
They vere elevated to about a two-story level. They were sitting, up there, 
lau?;hing and waving. I had been married in Mr. Levitan' s house 11 years 
earlier. It had be^n raining in Dallas earlier in the morning also. As we 
flew in, "la'^ing one large circle in a 10-minute flight, the sun v;as out. 
The crowd bx at Love Field was by far the largest we had soen. once down, 
the President and "■■Irs. Kennedy broke ranks and walked along a vrire fence 
shaking hands v;ith dozens and dozens of people, and it seemed almost 
immediately as if the people in Dallas vjere out to convince the President 
and his wife that they wanted no part of the Stevenson affair or the a T fair 
a couple of years ago (I96O) vrith Vice President and Mrs. Johnson (then 
Sen. majority leader) dov^ntown. The crowds that lined the motorcade route, 
going dov.'ntown first and then out to the- Trade Mart, vjere iay^^iy larger 
than they had been in Houston, although Houston has more people. This was 
due in part largely to the fact that this was lunchtime. It v;as on our 
minds — the feeling that there could be some sort of violence, or a show 
o" aggravation to^-mrd the President or the Administration. The reporters 
on the press bus (I was on the second of the tiTO press buses this time) 
vjere talking about the" fact that we were due to go past Gen. F.dwln Walker's 
house as vre went down Lemon Ave., but that proved to be false. However that 
consumed quite a bit of time in the discussion among the reporters. They 
were also taken with the fact that there were mighty few anti-Kennedy signs 

along the motorcade route. One of the signs was : John Kennedy in 196h. 
A.nd on the other side, it said: Barry Goldwater in ISS^-.. As we turned into 
the dov;ritown canyon, there was just a v;hale of a lot of people. It was 
later estimated that a quarter-million people were on hand to see the 
Presidential party^ counting those at the airport and those lining the 
route l»'-ading into downtown, as well as downtown itself. They were standing 
so r.i^ 10 deep at the curb, especially in the Akard and Ervay areas of 
Main Stre-t. I had a windown seat. There was no one sitting next to me. There 
was a mar. sitting directly behind me at a window seat (see notes for his 
name). ?Ie v;as talking to me about President Kennedy's plans with the 
Do.iiocra'ic I^ational committee. Now, this man shoul-3 not have been with the 
White House Press group. He rode on the press plane and was designated as 
a member of the White House staff. However, he was just taking a freeload 
ride because he v;as going to vacation in Oklahoma. (Iwas exercising the 
Washington cocktail party technique with him. I v/as listening to what he 
said, I was thinking that he would be a subject for an expose 35si piece because 
2r his ride at taxpayer expense. I v/as looking out the v/indow for friends on 
i-ne crowds on the packed streets. A three-way activity while giving the

\ie were then in front of the Ballas County Jail Builriing, e-.ier^in;]; around 
the corner, onto Houston .Street which is bordered on the left by Dealy 
Plaza (on the west, the county jail bein;] on the east), (the man behind me was 
.going to take a vacation; a hunting trip into Oklahoma, I believe. Check 
notes.) Precisely at that moment, I heard tv/o shots in rapid succession, 
separated by about four second. The first shot, I did not hear for vre must 
have been still coming just around the corner when it happened . There was 
not instantaneous concern. A reporter sitting across the aisle from me, 
v;ho was bangin^ out a story of the President's speech to be made at the 
Trade Hart moments later. He was working from a prepared text. Scarcely 
looked up. Some of the reporters said that it had beon a pair of backfires 
despite the loudness of them. However, I looked onto the grassy hill near 
the triple underpass at the end of Dealey Plaza (the northwest end) and I 
saw a woman in a green dress struggling to run up the hill. I saw a man 
following her quickly and knocking her down. 'He lunged and grabbed her at 
the waist and palled her down to the ground. It ser-ined to me she had firel 
the shots I had just heard because by now I was convinced they had been shots. 
There was an emotional outburst on the bus right at that point. '\e, saw much 
panic on the grass at Dealey Plaza. I sqw a man drop to his knees, huddling 
tv;o children — two small children — pounfing the ground vdth a fist. To our 
right, on the other side of the bus, people v/ere still standing, v/avir.g 
flags, smiling cheering, not realizing what had hanpened in the handful of 
seconds just past. Our bus moved a few f:iet more and the faces of the 
people were changed. There were people by now screaming, pushing, beginning 
to run. We took off at a high rate of speed. The reporters in the bus were 
yelling to be allowed to get off the bus. I could see the photographers' 
pool car stoaped, just at the far end, under the triple overpass, as we 
r'='ached that point. Photographers were scrambling, out , running back tov/ard the 
Te"as School book Depository Bldg. It did not occur to any of us, concretely, 
that moment or furing the hectic ride to the Trade Mart that anything 
specifically had happened to the President. It seemed to us perhaps that 
someone in the crovrd had been hurt, or that the Secret Service had seen fit 
to fire on somebody for one reason or another. No one voiced any opinion 
that the President had been hit. We sat almost silently as the bus took us 
at a high rate of speed out Stemmons, having swung onto Stemmons from the 
triple overpass, I v/ould say at about between 60 and 75 miles per hour. 
Those people v/e passed-- at the side of '^.termons — had a strange look, a 
doubtful look, a look of surprise and disappointment. We didn't kno'-f that 
the President vrasn't ahead of us. Those people did and they didn't knov; 
what had happened. V7e brought to the side of the Trad i Mart. V/e i-;ere emptied 
out of the buses. It v;as then ve realized that something tragic really had 
happened because we were there all alone. V/e burst into a small, side doorway 
of the Trade Mart. A policeman, or tvio policemen stationed there, didn't wasnt 
to let us in. We insisted. "When we got past a small lobby and got inside, on 
the edge of this massive hall v;here hundreds of lu cneon diners were waiting 
for the arrival of the President, vie realized (with soft music playin^ ar d 
the rustle of plates and silverv/are) that no one in that massive place knew 
yet that anything had gone wrong, (appeared to know). We asked al^out press 
facilities. We didn't ask. V/e were excited. VJe were demanding. We told to 
go to a press room on the fourth floor. V/e expected there to get an announce- 
ment. V/e ran up the moving stairs of an "esculator (j-t seemed plausible that 
vihen v/e got there, vie would be ushered into a balcony area, reserved for the 
pr-!ss, so we could see the President make hi? speech and know that he was, . . 
all right. V/e thought perhaps someone else might have been hit or nearly hit). <i^

pictured to be the harried, hustlin;^, hurryin.j White House — "astenn 
reporters, unable to relax like Texas reporters perhaps — as if they pitied 
as for not relaxing as one should do in Texas. One of the reporters had the 
presence of mind to call the police station instantly (where my nresence 
Df -nind was, I don't knov/. I knew the tovm, the police, the nev/sp'^ioers. ) I 
savr reporters clo_;.3ing a snail bank of phones. I assumed they v/ere phoning 
their papers to tell their city desks that there had been shots ^nd so^iething 
lad ijOne v/ronp;. I rlidn't know why they were phoning v/hen we had no knowledge 
Df lirhat had happened. It v/as my all-time prize mistake in judgment. The reporter 

ho got through to the police, turned to us. He spoke calmly, so the rest 

f us could understand clearly, but not loudly, so as not to panic anyone 
passing by. He said Chief Stevenson (actually a sub-chief under Chief Curry) 
told him that the President had been shot and had be n taken to Parkland 
(Memorial) Hospital. V/ith that, I hollered at frlen-^s of mine from the press 
2orps and told them to follov; me, because I knew the area and co'Jld get to 
Parkland quickly (hov/, I didn't know). I expactod to charge out and get a 
3ab. If a cab even had besn there, anyone could have gotten in and asked to 

taken to Parkland. You didn't have to know the area for that. A. bystander — 
I never did find out his name — said if v;e needed a car, he had one. I 
lollerei at a couple more people. Ithinlj there were seven of us altogether. 

e ran to his car. It \ras a station wqgon, ■'e piled in. He took us fro a 
the T ade l-'nrt to Parkland at breakneck speed, at tines going against traffic 
laving his horn wide open. The President had been fatally shot at, 12:^^1. 
\t 12:55 we were at the hospital. The only reporters there ahead of us weri 
those four in the pool car which had been up close to the President. The 
nan in the station wagon drove us to the emergency entrance. As we jumped 
from his station ''agon, we were scant -feet av;ay fro'n the President's csr. 
"he two right-hand doors of the car were open. There v;ere crsuhed red roses 
Dn the back seat. There was a pitiful trail of bloof, leading from the 
oackseat of the car to the sidev/alk at the emergency entrance. Standing 
right there, looking at it, as if unable to move — transfixed — ''.'as Senator 
I'arborough. I talked to him, asked him what happened. By and large he told 

e it v;as something too horrible (see notes). The Senator's voice vras husky 
and quavering. I managed to get into the hospital wit.h a policeman's help. 
Che o^'ficer had seen me talking to the Senator. I showed my I'/hite House card. 
I was never more insistent in my life about having to get into a place. He 
escorted me inside, I got a phone iMiediately across from the emrgoncy surgery 

rea door. I was the first reporter into the hospital, aside from the four 
pool men who already were in and on phones. I called Washington and was 
lisctating a first-person account. The wire service \>'ere minutes ahead of me. 
I concentrated on Yarborough's feelings of sight and sound. I saw' the priest 
;o into thf= e-'V'-rgency area, the floor being guarded by a somber-looking 
'ecret Service man with a small white buti.on in his lapel, designating his 
role as a Secn^-t Service man. I sav/ Mrs. Jolinson, shaken, v/hite, V'Ping escorted 
Dut of the area , supported by the arms of tvro men. She looked as if she 
rould be ill in another moment. I finished phoning, \-.'ent again into the 
iallv;ay. Albert Thomas and .Henry Gonzalez were standing together near the 
nain o^^iergency entrance doorway j leading to the outside. I asked if they 
could t-11 me anything more. Neither one seemed able to talk. Albert Tho-ias, 
«;ho only the evening before had been so lavishly praised by the President 

the Houston testimonial dinner, and who had been urged earlier in the yeay 
?v the President not to retire from Congress at the end of I96W because of 
^ -^ l^eith. V7as able to tell me that a nuerosurgeon had been brought in, I 1)1 
realized then that the President had been shot in the head (a fact thfio most y /, 

)f the nation already knevr because the pool renorters saw the head wound at , 
about 12:35, when the President was brought to the hospital emergency entranc.e_.

left, walked onto the grass, turned left again around a corner of the 
building, vralked up a slight grassy hill, climbed over a short fence rail 
and went into -'-nother entrance of the Hospital. Heading tov/ard a stairv;ay, 
I felt a tug at the back of my coat. This v/as the Jack Ruby incident. Going 
up the grassy hill, Merriman Tmith was pleading and demanding that ralduff . 
tell us then and th^re v;hat the announcement would be. Kilduff strode quickly 
and said v/e v/ould have to wait. Kilduff 's face was grayish when v/e got into 
a second-floor classroom. It was ja-;'ied v/ith reporters.- He stood behind the 
desk at the head of tho classroom, in front of a wall blackboard, his fingers 
extended, spread on the desk-top, supporting him, wetness rolling down his 
face. Tears or sv/eat. He made the announcement in measured tones, his 
voice verging on breaking down toward the end of it. There was an imeiiate • 
rush for telephones. He said there would be a furf'^er statement in another 
10 •ninut'->s or so. He fixed the time of the President's death at "about 
1 p.n.y I v;ent ot an office dovm the hall and placod a call to '-'ashington. 
It '-/as difficult getting a line out of the hospital. The nurses in this 
office-- there v/ere a handful — seemed to b'e stunned — and they looked at 
each other dreadfully as they listened to ny conversation to VJashington. 
A western union lan who bad b 'en with us since we came down fro'.i froi 
Andrews Air Force Base came into the office. A nurse asked hin about a 
report that a Secret Service agent had boon killed out on the street. He 
said tho^ it was true. This was one of the immediate rumors v/hich sprung 
up . It took several days for this particular rumor not to be believed in 
Dallas itself (fellow in Jaggars-Gtiiles-Stovall:^ who got it from a friend 
v/ho got it from a postman supoosed to have been at the death scene that the 
shot and bleeding SS man v/as picked up and vrhisked away and it vras all

(description of Kilduff viakin- his first annomcenf.Tit at 1:30, standlrjg 
behind the dos'.c — it was not so nuch the vhiteness in his fini;ers as he 
pressevi the-:i on the desk top, or tlie look on his face. It vas the color 
of his eyes. They are a rich blue. But they were nov; pale, the blue 
and whit^-ness running together in a milky v/ay.) Although CJtinson 
explained im-iediately that he v;as not a doctor, the first questioners, 
perhaps the first two or three, called him doctor as they a-.ldressed him, 
Stinson came with the announcement that the Governor was in eytre^^.ely 
serious condition, but v;ould live. Julian 0. Rsed, doing public rela- 
tions for the Governor (on hand since the v^jan Antonio stop) explained 
on the blackboard for reporters v;here the Governor and Mrs. Connelly and 
the President and Mrs. Kennedy weri sitting in the car. The/ took a 
couple of different tries — with the help of Bill "tinson — in getting 
the seating arrangement down right for the reporters. Stinsofi described 
the Governor's wounds. There was an announcement that a pool car was 
needed to go out to Love Field, and since there was no explanation in 
depth as to why only a handful of reporters left. I ran down the stairs 
with them. I decided, by the time I got do-'.mstairs that without knowing • 
what the purpose vrasy it v;ould be foolhardy to go out. This pool car 
was the one which went out to attend the si^'oaring in of the new 
PresiTPnt in Air Force One. I talked to Henry }onzglez, outside the 
hospital. He was clutching a paper bag .and harily able to talk, tie 
said the the bag contained the personal effects of Gov. Connally. Ke sai< 
he had just se ^n Mrs. Kennedy leave v;ith the body of the President. He 
had helped her into the hearse. Returning to the upstairs or ^ss head- 
qu'^rters, after talking v/ith Sen. Yarborough, Mayor Earle Cabell and 
other Texas Congressmen, I found the two doctors who had v/orked on the 
President — one on his head and one on his throat — were describing the 
condition of the President as thoy found it and as they had worked on 
it. They spoke almost entirely without emotion and answered each 
question, except that they obviously — pinched by the pressure — 
didn't understand the relentless probing of reporters, ham.nerlng 
questions in an effort to get every last detail. and get it reduced to 
the si'.-.plest of terms. The two were al'iiost cutting in their ansv/ers. 
Jiggs Fauver announced that soon v:e would be going to Love Field. 
Kilduff was no longer there in the press room. I was coaqerned with 
getting ny lujgage off the plane because I knew I vrould bV-staying 
at least for some hours. V/e entered the prf^ss buses and received a 
police escort going out. Ther" vrere already (check time) scores and 
scores of peopla standing, staring at the hospital, as if they could 
see something, as if something could be done. It was the same at Love 
Field v;hen we arrived there, except that people were much farther 
back from being able to see anything than they were at the hospital. 
Our bus vfas held at the edge of the runway because the endings of Air 
Force One vrer ■ being revved. The plane was beginning to taxi. As soon 
as it taxied into a position ready for takeoff, one of the members of 
the press corps from the Love Field pool (Sid Davis — Uestinghouse) 
ran up to us and stood on the hood of ikK a car and explained everything 
that happened during the swearing-in inside the plane, just moments 
before. 1 thdn ^rent to the Pan-Am press plane and got my bag off. The 
stewardesses looked old. I then went into the Love Field Terminal and 
phoned my office in VJashington. (explain difference bet^'^een Scripps- 
Koward and v/ire service). I told my office was heading for the jail 
dovmtown and that Lyndon was sworn in and vfas heading back. I rode ,/ 
downtown with Andy Hanson, photographer for the Dallas Times Herald W 
and with Bob Hollingsworth, ray former city editor on the Times Herald^J

the first I'd h^^ard that a man nmod U-.e Harvey Osvrald had boen 
arrested and that a policc.-ian had boi-n shot iov;n dead, and. that 
Oswald had a history on the c-xtrone loft, rather than on the e/trene 
right. This ''/as by now about 3:15 (check notes), or about 2 hours, ^5 
minutes after the President was shot and tv/o hours after Oswald v;as 
captured (nearly two hours) in the Te^as Theater. I got out of the 
car outside the Times Herald Eld^ and stood on a corner on r.lm Street, 
tryinji to find a cab and there wer^ none. Waiting 10 minutes , I set 
out with my bac , port.-ible typewriter, coat and envelope of notes for 
the Da].las police station, a distance amounting tisR to the vrest-to-oast 
length of downtown Dallas, about a mile (the area of dovaitown v/hich hole 
all the larje buillincs). I checked into the White Plaza Hotel, put 
my belongings into a 10th floor room and went iri^iediately to the police 
station across the street (caty-corner on Hai'vrood). There v/as no 
excitement downtov/n. There was no outward ernotion. There v;as no weeping. 
There were no speeches. People were in the streets, waiting in line for 
buses, in their cars, walking. There were grim looks almost ever:/^//here. 
Stores were open. I had trouble getting onto the third floor of the 
police station, I had to shov; my credentials in order to be allo'-/ed 
into the hallway which by now was cloi^^ed wit.h reporters — a nevr 
set of reporters, for only a few of us took our belon2ings off the 
press plane and stayed. Most were going back to Washington. I only had 
two recollections of Lee Harvey Oswalcl. The first one was in 19^0, while 
I still wa?^ on the Fort Worth Press. He was a fellow who had been in 
the M'^rine Corps, I'd remembered and had gone to Russia, I'd rem<=:abered. 
Kent Eiffle had arranged a three-'-/ay telephone conversation in I96O 
among himself, Oswald in Russi and Oswald's mother in Fort IVorth. I.'ow, 
it took several hours to arrange the call trans-Atlanticly and trans- 
continentally and get the call into Russia to where Osv/ald v;as. At times 
it seemed it would be impossible to get the call through, but at last 
the call v;as ready and Mrs. Oswald was on her line in her home and 
Kent Eiffle, sitting directly across from me at the Press city desk, 
v/as on his phone, and here came Oswald on his phone in Russia. A.s soon 
as Osv/ald found out that it v/as his mother on the phone in Fort ''.'orth 
and it was a nev/spaperman vrho had set this thing up, so she could talk 
to her son, Oswald hung up. All those hours down the drain. The o'her 
recollection I had was that at some point last year there were stories 
in the papers that Oswald was coming home. I clipped out a story from 
the Fort V/orth Press stating that he was due home at such and such 
a time. I thought that should he come to Washington to straighten out 
his papers or his affairs, hsx I would want to talk to him. But to my 
knowledge, he never did come tm Washington. There vrere dozens of 
reporters clogged in that hallv/ay, which stretched from an entrance way 
where the elevators (two of them) opened up on the third floor, to 
the press room at the end of the corridor. In between, starting at the 
entrance way area was a door which led to an elevator going to the 
Jail cells upstairs where Oswald was being kept at intarvals. k couple 
of doors down on the same side, the right-hand side (east side) was 
the homocide office, where Capt. Will Fritz holds forth. Kext door was 
forgery & robbery, then auto theft, then the press room. That hallway 
was to remain clogged with the humanity of reporters for the next three 
da^/s. The hallway v;as about 25 yards long from entrance way to press 
room (the southwest vring of the third floor is what it was). I stayed 
pretty much' in touch with my office in Washington — perhaa^ three ;/ 
phone calls— until shortly after midnight when the Oswald press M 
conference v;as held in the police assemoly room. One old acquainLancexl 
v/ho I saw v;as Vince Drain of the FBI and in subsequent conversations 
as the hours wore on, Vince told me^that he was flying the. two Oswald 
gund to Washington sometime during the night or early morning hours. I

nlso loarned fro-n Vince that there had been ti/ro bullets vmich had 
hit the President, I assembled these and other facts Tor -t story for 
•Saturday's papers and in subsequent conversations with Chuck E^jer in 
l/ashin^ton, I tried to put the therms of a story together but EjiiGr 
felt the story would becone clearer as time v/ent on — it v;ould take 
more facts which would have, to hold up for Saturday. My facts v;ere 
fine for spot news. They v.'ere new. They v/ere cood scoops. But they 
v/ouldn't up throut;h Saturday. I was v/orking hours ahead of the news 
now, as a goil for a story. At intervals, Oswald's wife v/gs brought 
in and his mother, and his two small children, alon^ with ;-Irs, Ruth 
Paine to do the interpreting, and her two children, Osv/ald himself 
was leiff at intervals bwteen the elevator-cell foor and Fritz's door. 
Each time Osv;ald passed through the hallway, an ailse v/gs cleared 
wide enough for him to v/alk, v;ith no extra room. His hands v;ere 
manacle^d. He griinlj'- refused to answer questions. Each time F:^itz 
mov 'd fron one doorway to the other, when he did not have the prisoner 
in tow, he was deluged by reporters so thickly gathered around him that 
he could not be heard beyond the first tight ring of ears around him. 
people flat against him. Besides, Fritz speaks in a low, rather gravelly 
voice, A custom was begun almost immediately that the reporters up close 
would pass the word to reporters behind them, V/ith the number of radio 
and television people, reporters were Ijains interviewed by other 
reporters v/ith microphones. During the evening hours, at least one 
planeload of reporters from the F.ast arrived. Hew York City and 
V.'ashington primarily. These incl';d"d foreign correspondents of foreign 
nev/spapers, stationed in the U,3. Chief Curry was more than aware of 
their presence, and so he held what possibly is one of thomost unusual 
press conferences in police history. In the police assef.ibly room, in 
the basement, past midnight. At about 12:15 a.m., Oswald v;as led in. 
Reporters and photographers had b-^en pre-warned that an^ movements 
to>-ard Oswald — any unusual movements — any flurry of shouxed questions 
(such as had be--n goin^^ with poor Capt, Fritz) (reporters shouting, 
yelling, holl-:ring 'juestions, drowning out other questions, drowning 
out the answers) — Oswald would be led out immediately. This press 
conference was something akin. I guess, to something you night conjur 
up for the Middle Ages. Some thing like a press conference in ancient 
Home. After it .'as over, I typed out a story and phoned it in. It v;as 
about 2 a.m. (3 a,m, V/ashington time). The majority of our staff in 
Washington v?asstill at v/ork. If I had any apprehension before other 
.reporters did in the bus in the motorcade in Dallas that something had 
happened to the President when the shot sounds were heard, it was • 
because it was my first Presidential trip and I ^^ras more apprehensive 
perhaps about everything that happened or \>/as about to happen than 
the veterans, Saturday morning after getting up and having breakfast — 
my first solifl meal since a good hot lunch on the press plane two 
days, earlier-- (there had been no time or no desire to eat in the 
eventful hours since then, I felt a substantial weight loss Immediately, 
As I write this (Dec. 28, five weeks later, from notes I taped on a 
recorder tv/o weeks earlier) I still have not gained back to the weight 
I was at the start of the trip, Nov. 21). I noticed during the days that 
follov;.-d in Dallas, I had little desire to eat much, and rarely ate 
more than twice a day, though my work hours often were from early 
morning until about 9 p.m.; most of it on tht; constant go), I wnet next^ 
door to ,tha hotel Saturday morning, to Titche-C-oettinger ' s and bought ^7

Texas Theater in O^k CliPf while he was i;ryin,; to rasirA. v.^rost. Curry 
was anxious to shov/ that there was no police brutality (pf'rh' 
anticipating such a complaint by Oswald in th'? course of rooming 
a confession). The Dallas police department v;as on show Tor the entire 
world ,, especially with television and radio facilities being set up 
on the third floor. Ue were not confined to the press rooii for v/ritir.g 
and telephoning, because very few people could fit into the press roon. 
There were three telephones and two desks, as well as a couch, with 
two typewriters in the room. Police offices on the third floor v;ere 
overflowing with reporters working; on typewriters and using telephones 
through that v/hole weekend. The whole daysx was spent in the police 
station Saturday and almost entirely on the tiiird floor. Tlie luestioning 
of Osv/ald resumed. There were more rumors. Ther^? v;ere more questions 
shouted continually at Capt. Fritz, v;ho looker: tired but V/-ho v/as used 
to putting long hours to crack a good case. Early Saturday evening, 
Capt. Fritz said that based on his ex';erience, Oswald v/lll never admit 
the cine of killing the President. He said, based on his information, 
though, there is no other suspect besides Oswald and that Oswal'J v/as the 
man who had murdered the President. Not long after, about 8:15 P."i.> 
Saturday, Chief Curry made the announcement that later v;as to come 
back and haunt him. He gathered — or merely stepped out into the hallway 
on the third floor and didn't have to gather — the press. You could 
barely breathe in that crowd around the chief. It formed about hir in 
a flash. He manuevered into a position before the network TV cameras. 
The crov/d there A^/as so large that one reporter was making his notes 
on the back of Chief Curry. HT^ had his notepad placed on the right 
shoulder blade of the Chief and was writing as the Chief talked. The 
Chief said there would be no further questioning of Osv/ald during the 
night. He said Oswald vrould not be transfered to the county jail during 
the night. He assured us that if v/e were to arrive by 10 a.m. the next 
day, \-je vrould be able to see for ourselves the transfer of Oswald to 
the County Jail. He did not guarantee that the transfer would take place 
at 10 o'clock but he said that we would have time iix to see it if we 
were there by 10. Discussing this among ourselves immediately after 
the Chief made his statement, it was generally concluded that Oswald 
would indeed b^ transfered during the night. We fully expected it. I 
don't knov; of anyone who was planning to have his feelings hurt if such 
a raiddle-of-the-night move^ happened.

By Saturday night, the executive offices of the police dfOirtmnnt 
on the other end of the third floor corridor (the southeast win^i) 
N^rere filling, up rapidly with mail, telegrams from ill p.?rts of the 
country. Telephone calls were being noted on legal-sized paper note 
pads. There was correspondence and phone calls from many narts of the 
world. Fron Australia. From r.ngland. From other countries. Some v;as 
in nature of criticism of the Dallas police, cepartment for allowing 
the assassination of the President to ha;^i:en in Dallas. Some came 
from araateur sleuths. Sweet old ladies in Des loines and so forth, 
who had th^ir own theories as to how to trap Osi;ald into the admission 
that he was the assissin, or how to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt 
that he was it, \<rhether he'd ever ad-nit it or not. One letter su^ jested 
that the police examine Oswald's teeth. The remains of fried chicken — 
the chicken bones themselves — were found by the carboard boxes at the 
sixth floor window of the Texas School Book Depository Eldg. V/hoever 
had eaten that lunch vrauld have traces of fried chicken betv^een his 
teeth. Another su,.,gestion v;as that Oswald's stool should be carefully 
examined. This might have branded Oswald forever in the history books 
as the 'chicken shit killer. of President Kennedy. In 17 years as a 
reporter, I had found myself in a number of curious situations, but 
none quite like this, I've never been in a place where reporters 
frequently stood staring at each otheu or sat staring at each other 
at interludes, uttering only one or two words at each other, such as: 
In-cred-ible, or unbelievable. There was exhaustion in the faces of 
the reporters. There was an atmosphere of despair, despite the quick 
pulse of action that throbbed the third floor hallv/ay, hour after hour. ■ 
3y the second day especially, Saturday, the effects of the assassination 
had set in. It \sras , even among the reporters who were v/orking hard and 
were fully occupied, it was hard to accept that v/hich had ha:">pened. 
V/e were strangely isolated. I didn't know whether Connally v;-a.'-~ alive or 
if he v;ere alive, how he was doing. I didn't knov/ if Force One ever 
landed in Vi'ashington, or was President Johnson in seclusion. I didn't 
know what happened to President Kennedy's remains except that they 
had been headed for Eethesda Naval Hospital, a few blocks from my home. 
I didn't know what life existed two blocks beyond the police station. 
I wasn't calling any friends. There was no tine. More, there was no 
thought of them. My office had called my wife Friday and told her I 
wasn't coming home immediately. I still hadn't talked to my vrife. I 
called her late Saturday morning. She was out with the children. I 
talked instead to my mother who lives in Washington. I was wholly 
interested in any movement, any thought, any vrord on that third floor. 
I talked to my v;ife briefly Saturday evening from the Dallas police 
station, told her little and didn't ask for any news beyond how she 
and the children were doing. For me, at least, the third floor of that 
50 year old building, newly, tastefully done over on the inside, was the 
only place where life existed in the world. I didn't ask my office for 
any other nev^s. I doubt if there was a reporter there who had not been 
at one time or another on a police beat. It was a return to that type 
of story again, except that any police story before, for any of us, 
was just a preparation for this one. There were many questions still to 
be asked of Oswald. Many tests yet to be given to him. In an effort to 
unravel the mystery of why John Kennedy v;as murdered. But of all the /); 
tests to be denied by the next day's brutal slaying of Oswald v;as on^^ 
that was inevitable — a psychiatric test. When aroused, I wondered. j» 
vrould Oswald slam his fist on the table three times, shout a vrord thrie 
times in anger, kick at a door three times. There had been three shots 
fired into the President's car. There had been three shots fired into 
Officer J.W. Tippit (ask a psychiatrist what a series of 3 means).

Late Soturdayi,! for our Sunday papers , I did a pieco on Dptoci.ive Capt. 
Will Fritz, his -background and his role in thn job of breakin-^ the case, 
alons v;ith the difficulties Fritz faced, as an occasional question fror'i 
an FBI man or an assistant district attorney hurst the bubble that Fritz 
had been carefully building around Oswald. Fritz strikes you as being of 
the Charlie Chan school. His expression is irniobile. It rarely changes. 
He shows few emotions. He is very even nan under grost stress. It v/as 
possible, during the course of Friday and Saturday to '.\ralk into the 
chief's office, talk with him or a high-ranking assistant. By Saturday 
it was clear to the reporters that there were no other prime suspp'cts 
in jail and no other prime suspects being sought, for the crime itself* 
When Os\.'ald was led dovm the ja!a;ii'^-. corridor, the reporters nearest 
him often vroull holler: V/hy did you kill the President? \Jhy die you 
kill the President? Reporters rarely are that emotional. I never raw 
it before, except in a press box at a college football game, among 
provincial sports writers who can't keep themselves from rooting for 
the home team. One time Oswald shouted back that he was being denied 
his basic rights to have a shower. His basic hygenic rights, as he put 
it. Chief Curry appeared touchy about this. He soon told rtioorters that 
Oswald could have a shower any time he needed one in the regular jail 
shower room. Another time, Oswald shouted for attorney John Abt , v.'ho 
frenuently handles cases for Con-mnist'S in America, John Abt of Kew York 
City. Get me Abt. Oswald v;anted Abt for his attorney. Another time, 
a reporter sho ited a question at Oswald, asking why Osvrald had v/Tltten 
to Connally v/hen Connally was Navy Secretary, asking Conn?.lly to get 
his discharge from the Marine Corps changed to an honorable discharge. 
Osv-ald hollered back over his shoulder, as he v;as led into the 
jail elevator doorv/ay: I don't know what kinfl of newspaper reports you 
are getting but these are not true. He was defiant. He looked alert at. 
all times. In his profile, he was sharp-f eatui'ed. Full-faced, he had a 
cunning look. He looked like Bobby Darin in the full face. That fact 
jfKTOj) shaped my opinion of what Oswald v;as like in his looks. Tv;o months 
earlier (check dates) in VJashlngton, I had witnessed the riots of the 
young CoT'innist sympathisers who had gone to Cuba against State Depart- 
ment orders — the riots inside and out of the House Jn-Amr^rican Activitit 
Comiiittee hearing room, and attended their own nighttime rally which 
was undermined by George Lincoln Rockwell's nazis. Two days of riots. 
Their timing vras precise as they were carried o^f by police individually. 
They appeared to wait until they got into the best camera angles and 
before 'enough reporters to scream and become martyred. This was Lee 
Harvey Oswald. He was living the part of a martyr. I don't recall' ever 
before having such a consuming desire to go out and get drunk as I did 
Saturday night. I hoped that somewhere a package store would be ooen 
or somev;here perxhaps a bar would be open v;here I could sit quietly and 
take care of this need. To my astonishment, I found many bars open 
dov/ntown. In one, four doors down from the city's m.ain intersection of 
Co", -erce and Akard, a block from where hundreds had stood at Main and 
Akarsd just the day before to cheer the President in his last moments 
alive, I went in. I found the juke box playing, people dancing, people 
at the bar laughing. It was Saturday night and the place was open for 
business. I v/alked past the Carousel, the Jack Ruby place, and as he 
had mentioned to me the day before, it was closed. Two other nearby 
strip joints, however, were open. I went into one and stayed a few 
minutes. Business was off. I will say that. But there v;ere happy drunks 
there, barking at the gals to take it all off. Though I vrent several 
Places and put as many beers down into me as I could hold, I could not 
he'-'in to get drunk. I found myself v/ishing only now that every b/i/\in 
to'^n v;"re closed. T'N,

"arlipr Satnrriay nitihi, it must. have h-^.en aboat 6 o'clock, I war. av/are 
that a 'boxful of sandv^iches had bcpn. nlaciu ia the prGss room. They 
wpp-^ ^ood cold meat sandwiches and thp rooortsrs made short v;ork of ther 
though I didn't take one. I didn't knov/ how they ^^ot there. It v;as the 
next afternoon that I learned that Jack Ruby 'aad brought them in. It 
also v.-as the next afternoon that I l^arneil that Jack Ruby had b^en in 
the police asse'ubly room Friday ni-ht with th.^" reuorters' who stood on 
tables, and the photo^^raphers who bunched into the plainclothes guards 
at the froni, of the room surrounding Oswald. Sunday afternoon, District 
Attorney Henry Wade was to say to' the press that Jack Ruby was present 
Friday night during that str.-^nge press conference "I understand," or "I 
a:n told." A new york city radio moorter, Ike Pappas, corrected Henry 
and said that he (Pappas) had bo^n talking with Ruby in the assonfoly 
room snd Ruby had given him a card and had invited ±21 hirr, to be his 
guest in the Carousel when it ZKpa reopened. Pauoas still carried the 
card in his wallet. Said that he brought Ruby over to the District 
'Attorney and that the D.A. seemed to know Mr. Ruby. Henry smiled but 
gave no answer (after first saying that Ruby was mistaken for being a 
reporter). In fact, starting with Sunday afternoon, you no longer could 
find a policeman in tovm who said that he knew Ruby or, if h<= knew 

was recognized, it was because there were so many reoorters milling 
around — so many new faces, so many people arriving from all sorts' 
of distant points in America. Dallas v/as caught flat-footed. Dallas 
still I'as a polite place to be and the police were cooperating as much 

they could.: Being there, seeing the"assassina"tion scenes of ?fesi^Teht 
Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald unfold before my eyes through the long 
weekend, v:as exceedingly strange because of the isolation. Millions 
and millions of people were watching the events and subsequent events 
on television screens and hearing them on radio sets. Isaw nothing on 
TV, heard nothing on radio and didn't know what v/as happening beyond 
where I was. It was much like fighting a battle in a war. People back 
home read extensive reports of the extent of the battle and its meaning 
in relationship to the rest of the war, while the foot soldier there has 
no idea v/hat anything means beyond that piece of ground which he can see. 
I was in fact so certain Sunday morning that Oswald had been moved during 
the night to county jail that I slept late, showered, had a liesurely 
breakfast, read two Sunday newspapers while eating, and looked out the 
hotel v;indow for the first time, after finishing eating in the first 
floor restaurant, and to my surprise saw people waiting outside the city 
jail. I knew then that Osv;ald had not yet been transfered. It was now 
about 10 :Uo a.m. I left my newspapers at the hotel desk, vient across 
the street, up to the third floor, found that there were not many people 
there, took an elevator to the basement, which was the starting point 
of the transfer. There, I encountered difficulty. & uniformed officer 
asked for my identification. (I went over all of this later on for the 
Dallas police and the FBI at their requests) Ishov;ed the officer my White 
House press pass. That meant nothing to the officer. He called a detec- 
tive over. The detective said my identification v;as perfectly all right. 
Had he too turned me down, I would have fished out my Dallas police anfd 
Texas Dept. of Public Safety press credentials. They were outdated. cM

I v/as allov;pd to ,1oin the rest of the reporters. I saw Boh Fenlr-y'of the 
Dallas Tii'ies Herald standing in the office of the basement, used to book 
inconing prisoners. I took up a position v;ith him and Capt. Johes of the 
Dallas police came along subseque/itly and told us we'd have to vacate 
that area. Along with us were a handful of reporters, plus one network 
television camera setup. I think CBS. They were taking extra precautions 
of course. Taking no chances. They v;anted all reporters and catieras in 
one area, v;here they could beep a close eye on them when Oswald appeared. 
He would be coming dov/n the jail elevator into the booking office, 
through there and out into the basement driveway area. I urged Bob to 
move very slowly. V/e did. In fact we vr'"n'e the last to l-^ave. I was in 
hopas that v;hile we were delnjin:^, Oswald V70uld be noved do"n the 
elevator. V'e didn't miss it by ^luch. VJe got into the drivew.-^y area ?r:d 
were there not more than four minutes I guess when sorr.eon*^ r;houted h^^re 
he coi'ies. Fenley and I stayed togoth during tills whole period of time, 
(diagram) It nevei- v;as official and may never become official but the 
police apparently, according to what they themselves later v;ere saying 
unofficially, were planning not to take Oswald in the armored vehicl"^ 
that vias v/aiting at the end of the Co-inerce Street ramp. Instead they 
would put him into one of the tvro cars, the g^'-een one or white one 
which v-ere driven into position at the last moment, and rush him out the 
Main Street ramp, using the armored car as a decoy. They v/ere apprehen- 
sive about an attempt on Oswald's life'. They expected this could occur 
outside the police station or en route througl: the downtov/n streets or 
at the arrival point at the county jail. Capt. Fritz had ii;tlmated the 
day before that he was against the transfer. Since this was a Dallas 
city police matter, it would make it difficult to transport witnesses 
back and forth and Oswald back and forth for continuous questioning and 
tests and so forth. I felt certain that more shots v;ould be fired after 
Ruby fired his weapon. Not necessarily as part of a plot or anything 
like that. There was mass confusion for at least a minute — one of 
those minutes in which an eternity of thought and movement occurs. The 
police vrere agitated. Capt. Jones shouted to a uniformed guard at the 
riain St. end of the ramn — no one leaves this place. The guard svfiveled 
into a gun-firing position, aiming down into us. I saw om^ detective ^ 
after wrestledto the concrete floor and dragg'^d into the booking office 
(where Osv;ald was carried) by a small platoon of police — this detec- 
tive's eye red and wet, due to the utter frus':ration of the thing. Fenley 
and I sxii did what the other reporters did, depending on i/here they 
where standing v^hen the shooting occurred, tried to run, foolishly I 
guess, but that's v/here the story v;as, tried to run to where the man 
who had I done the shooting was brought down to the concrete. vJe trie! 
to move I from there into the booking office. A. plain-clothesed officer, 
studj/ing us as If we may have planned to do some shooting ourselves, 
ordered I us not to move and ordered us back against the driveway area 
railingi vJe were bunched and crowded. VJe were shouting and the officers 
were shouting and they would not let us move. The police v/ere caught 
in their own trap now. The two cars and the armored car v/ere blocking 
the attempts of an ambulance to get in to remove Oswald to Parkland 
Hospital. When the ambulance was brought in, it was brought to the ^ 
point where Fenley and I stood. Oswald was carried out of the booking 
office on a stretcher and was placed inside the ambulance, his head 
exactly! at the point where I was standing, looking in at him. He looked 
gravely injured. His mouth v/as open, rigidly. His face was a pasty gray.

public elevator area of the basement, . told to 2° to the third floor 
where Chief Curry would have statcnents to make. We v;ere not asked for 
identification upon getting to thr- third floor, but the executive wing 
of the third floor for the first time was blocked off by three uniformed 
officers, standing shoulder to shoulder. Fenlciy and I took up a position 
in front of the three and there we waited. As it turned out Chief Curry 
had nothing to say to the press and made no move from his office for 
two hours. But we stood in one place the whole time, (check notes for 
exact amount of time). Meanv;hile two detectives who had teen less than • 
a foot away from Oswald when he was shot talked to us about what they 
saw and did. (according to the masterpiece photosby Jack Beers and 
Bob Jackson, one of the detectives, standing i-miediately on Oswald's 
right, didn't see Ruby making the fatal lunge. The other was Jack 
Combest, who reacted with a shout Instead of physical action, as Ruby 
-.brushed past his arm in making the lunge.) Bob Jackson was scgnding 
with us during the wait for Curry's announcment. He didn't knov; he had 
the picture that probably is a Pulitzer Prize v/inner and vrill certainly 
become 'an all-time classic in American photo journalism. He, like 
Beers, ;fired his earner at that moment because he thought Ruby v;as a 
radio reporter, thrusting a sii slender hand microphone at Osvrald. 
Jackson shot his picture before the "radio man" blocked his line of 
vision. When Curry was ready, he came from his office without a word. 
By the look on his face, it was Instantly easy to tell that the entire 
complexion of this story was no\-r changed. V/e followed him down into 
the police assembly room. I rode in the same elevator with him. He 
said nothing. He took up a position in the front of the room. There 
were delays v/hile cameramen got into position and vfhile the television 
people got set up exactly the way they v/anted to, and then it •,\ras very 
disappointing. The chief spoke for a matter of seconds. Less than a 
minute. His announcement v/as that Loe Harvey Oswald had expired at 1;07 
p.m. He' said he had no further statements at this time. He started to 
unhook '' the "vrire necklace" which held a small microphone on his tie 
at the breastplate. He was deluged with reques.t-s to repeat vjhat he had 
just said for the television cameras. He v/as deluged vrith questions from 
reporters, shouting again. He did say he felt that Osv/ald v/as the guilty 
man. He was obviously physically unable to say anything more. He v/as 
the very picture of a despindent man. Here was a picture of profound 
sadness — the face of Jesse Curry. The boner of the Dallas police 
department would rank no\-r with the building of the Maginot Line by the 
French to knep the Germans from marching into their country during 
V/orld VJar II, \v'hen the Gemrans merely went around the thing. Remember 
the picture of Frenchmen crying in the streets of Paris then. Only the 
tears were missing from the tragedy on Curry's face. We learned that 
great cheers went up from the hundreds of people standing outside the 
Dallas county jail at the other end of dovmtovn, when it was announced 
to them that Oswald would not be coming for he had been shot in the 
police station. I have spoken to other people since who have v/itnessed 
the shooting on television. They said their first reactions were ones 
of great happiness. I think it took many people many minutes to realise 
the gravity of the murder of Osv;ald. In the police case of John Wilkes 
Booth, there was HHXiiaHiit little doubt about Booth's reasons for murder- 
ing a President. There was extreme doubt about v/hether Booth was subse- 
quently killed or lived on for many years after. It was an opposite polie 
case nov;. There was no doubt that the man charged with the murder of 
President Kennedy v/as now dead but the mystery v/ould be why he shot and 
killed !a President. Through the afternoon as the attorneys and prospec- 
tive attorneys carae-y- there was Droby, and Droby's wife at horn withr^^^e 
anonymous threat on her life, there was Toms Howard. There were .-lartp.

(Jin Martin) and Fred Eruner. There v/as George Sr-n^tor vho came; in, 
talkatively, holding an expansive press conference for 10 ninuoes before 
the police realized he was there and they v/hlsked him av/ay for ques- 
tioning. There was Mrs. F,va Grant, grimly, sadly, shakenly, still 
recoverinj; fro-n ma.ior surgery. She was overcome, unable to talk v;ith 
the mad pack of reporters v7ho by now were lil<e the (find vrord), the 
antagonistic free-lance photographers of Rhonie . There v;as an utterly 
heart-broken Capt. '.v'ill Fritz. There was an unsmiling, tight-lioped 
Jack Ruby nov; being led down the corri'-'or through the packed huianity 
of reporters, just as Oswald had walked the I'ony path in the hours 
before. And there was overv/h =lming revulsion. I felt the internal bleed- 
ing of tears agin, as there had been in the hospital tv/o days earlier. 
This would be the easiest story of all for me to write now. It was the 
story of seein-g a onetime friend of nine kill the man charged v/ith 
killing the PResident. A. story of recollections of what Jack Ruby was 
all about as I remembered hi'r' from my newspaper days in Dallas. There 
was a second story to write that evening also, based on the statements 
of Kenry Wade. Vince Drain of the FPI v;as back from Washington viith the 
two Oswald weapons. He arrived in the police station about 20 minutes 
after Oswald was killed. By Sunday evening, in the police assembly 
room, Henry Wade made a detailed statement of the "hard" facts un- 
covered by the FBI in their laboratory- studies of the weapons in 
V/ashington. laccompanied rienry down tne stairs. VJe didn't take the 
elevator. Me gave out at least one piece of erroneous information during 
his press briefing, which v;ent all over the world and was believed — 
which was that Oswald's fingerprints v;ere on the metal baseplate of the 
rifle vfhich had killed the President. Instead, Oswald's fingerprints 
ware found on the paper wrapping which had b.lan around the gun. 'iede 
had been asked by the FBI and the Dallas police not to make a lon:i publi 
statement regarding the facts tincovered by the FEI, but he v;ent -head 
anyway. Friction sprung up among the police .alements, their feelings 
already frayed in the wake of the national tragedy. By Sunday night, 
ddspite the darkness, there were cars from Dallas, cars from all over 
Texas, cars from the nearby states driving slowly past the place where 
the President had been shot, k raacawber proce .sion of cars that lasted 
long into the night. TraTfic was backed up for blocks. The procession 
v;ould last for days. By Monday, I got beyond the White Plaza Motel- 
police station Harwood corner area in daylight for the first time. I 
went to the Dallas county jail and v/as able to se • from there the 
flowers mounting at the side of the street at the spot of the Kennedy 
assassination. When I v/alked to that spot, someone standing there had 
a portable radio and taps was being sounded in Arlington Cemetery for 
thf^ PResident as he vras being laid to rest. At that moment, people in 
Dallasj on a sunny, clear day, v/ere laying more simple bunches of 
flowers and more vn-eaths on the grass where I stood. As I had knov/n 
Chief Curry HHstx I knew Sheriff Bill Decker and his assistants, "ut 
there ^^ras a different atmosphere. Decker welcomed reporters into his 
office: but was very firm in his demarkation of rules. In this next two 
week period, I was to do a lot of walking, a lot of traveling into the 
areas where Ruby and Osv/ald had lived-. I vjas to talk to many people 
downtovm and in outlying areas vrhose paths had crossed with the two 
infamous men. I v/as to spend very little time — a matter of minutes

Kr. SETH KANTOR, a mambar of the Washington Press 
Corps, Scripps- Howard Alliance, 1013 13th Street Northvar^t, 

• Uiishington, D.C., stated that he was assigned by his paper 
to cover the trip to Texas of President JOHN F. KEHIGDY. Mc 
stated he was riding in the special bus v;hich carried the 
I'Jhite Kouse correspondents on November 22, 1963. KANTOR 

^related that this bus was several car lengths behind the 
President's car, but as they were necring the corner of Elm 
and Houston Streets in Dallas, he heard three shots. He 
thought these were shots, but some of the press men thought 
the first shot was only a backfire of an automobile. 

He advised they x^ere then taken in the bus to 
I'larket Hall, where originally President KENNEDY had intended 
to address a meeting there at a luncheon on November 22, 
1963, Upon arrival at this Hall, he obtained the service 
of someone, whom he does not recall, to take him to Parkland 

Upon arriving at Parkland Hospital, IC/iNTOR went 
• to the emrgency area of the hospital and remained with other 
nav.'smen. Shortly before 1:30 p.m., November 22, 1963, the 
newsmen were notified that^K^LCOLM KILDUFF, the I-Jhite House 
Press Aide, was to make a historical announcement. The 
newsmen followed KILDUFF out of the emergency area which 
leads to the west side of Parkland Hospital and to the 
southwest corner of Parkland Hospital. Upon arrival at 
the southwest corner of Parkland Hospital, KILDUFF entered 
the door, v^ent in a small area, and then upstairs to a room 
where the announcement of the President's assassination was 
made at 1:30 p.m., November 22, 1963. 

Upon enteriug the southwest corner of the building, 
he felt someone tug at his coat, and it V7as JACK RUBY, whom 
KANTOR had known in Dallas, Texas, when KANTOR was on the

aat: he filed a story for his paper following this, but ha 

Ld remember the time that RUBY tugged his coat because it 

IS about two minutes before KILDUFF made the announcement 

t the President's death. KANTOR states he would place the tiue 

: about 1:28 p.m. when RUBY tugged the back of his coat and 

liked with him. 

KANTOR filed a story x;hich he says is fairly 
raplete about the events that afternoon for his paper back 
1 Washington. KANTOR does not know whether or not this 
IS been used, and it is being set forth verbatim: 

"Dallas. Nov. 25 - To my utter amazement I 
watched the man charged with killipg President KENNEDY 
gunned to death by a friend of mine, JACK RUBY. 

"It happened less than ten feet from where I 
..was standing in the basement of the Dallas Police 
•■• Station. LSE EARVEY OSW.^J.D was being led to an armored 
car in the basement driveway, Ke was to be transferred 
to the Dallas County Jail. 

"There was heavy police protection for OSWALD. 
Each of us nev/smen had been carefully checked -- we 
showed our credentials — before being allowed into the 
basement driveway area to watch OSWALD get into the 
transfer van. 

"OSWALD was near where I stood. I was locking 
into his face, Ke had a scant smile. He was freshly 
shaved, and his face appeared to beam with cleanliness. 

"At this point I heard Vice Squad Detective 
3. H, COMBEST shout, 'JACK — you son of a bitch.' 

■""OZZST was standing in front of OSWALD. 
?.UBT rv.-io 1-jaging past COMBEST like a stocky, five 
foot - nine inch porpoise, his arms extended, a pistpl 
at the end of it. As the muzzle came to OSWALD'S 
stomach, the gun went off.

"I watched OSWALD'S face contort from cleanliness 
to horror. As his body crumpled, he let out the last 
sound of his life, a spine-chilling moan. 

"The last time ^ I had seen OSW.\LD's killer, RUBY, 
was two days earlier. It v;as at Parkland Memorial 
Hospital, moments before the nev;s was official that 
President KENNEDY was dead. I had come to Texas 
covering the President's trip. 

"I felt a tugging at the back of my coat, I 
turned. RUBY put out his hand. He shook hands nus±»ly, 
having minutes earlier witnessed the tragic events of 
the President's assassination. 

'"This is horrible,' RUBY said. 'I think I 
ought to close my place for three days because of this 
tragedy. f/Jhat do you think?' His places are downtown 
strip joint and saloon. 

"I agreed that he should shut them temporarily, 
but I spent no more time talking to hira because I was 
hurrying behind the pale and shaken MALCOLM KILDUFF, 
the White House press aide, who was on his v/ay to make 
the historical announcement the. the President was dead, 

"Before Friday, I had not seen the 52 year old 
RUBY for nearly tv;o years since leaving Texas to be a 
reporter in Washington, D. C. 

"I sav7 much of RUBY, whose real last name is 
RUBENSTSIN, when I lived in Dallas. He was a fellow who 
usually wore a diamond stickpin and who came to me fre- 
quently with an idea for a newspaper stoify. 

"Taese were weird things, these stories, but 
unmarried RUBY always has been attracted to tinxisual

"There was a snake charmer he knew -- a suburbr.r. 
Dallas housewife who kept large snakes in craces in her 
house. Her husband was an accountant. At night, she 
performed in RUBY's night club stripping off her clothes 
while a snake coiled around her arms and legs. 

"I did another story about the male West Indies 
limbo dancer whom RUBY brought here as a performer, 
had taken a liking to and was sponsoring for U. S. 

"That is the V7ay ho v;as. '^en he liked you, he 
wanted to -"o anything and everything he could to help 
you. If he didn't like somebody, 'he would cxirse them 
and fight them. He has had a few arrests here because 
of the passionate ways in v7hich he had expressed his 
feelings of dislike for people. 

"'I came up the hard, tough way in Chicago,' he 
once told me. 'I have been around real thugs. I can 
handle myself.' 

"But one time I remember him bringing his nephew 
here 'to educate the kid. A man needs an education 
to get anywhere decent. I don't like the way I have 
wound up -- in the girlie- show business. I-Jhat kind of 
a life is that for a man?' 

"Friday I saw tears brimming in JACK RUBY's eyes 
when he searched my face for news of the President's 

"Yesterday, I spoke to GEORGE SENATOR, who has 
known RUBY eight years, SENATOR and RUBY have been 
sharing a four-x-oom house for $125.00 a month since 
September. SENATOR said that RUBY 'had been grieving' 
since the President's death. 

"RUBY was a non-political man as I knew hira, but 
he was always emotional. How was the emotional man able

to walk into the police to.cion basement yesterday 
ir.orning and murder the un-c:>otional man charged with 
killing the President? I couldn't believe my eyes. 
The precautions taken by the Dallas Police were 
thorough. They even :^earched the Tristine elevator 
shaft leading from OSWALD'S upstairs cell to the 
basement to make sure no assassin had found a hiding • • 

"RUBY knew and was known by many Dallas police. 
He was allowed in, somehow. He was JACK RUBY the 
kibitzer in the jail basement, just as he had been 
JACK RUBY the kibitzer at the hospital where President 
KENNEDY died. He was a familiar face at all kinds of 
strange events in this city. But yesterday he stopped 
being the kibitzer." 

KANTOR related that he did not actually see RUBY, 
but he saw RUBY's arm extending forth with a gun toward OSWALD, 
and the reason he did not see RUBY v;as in view of the fact 
that his attention was focused on OSWALD'S face at the time of 
the shooting. l^Jhen he heard gunfire, he turned his eyes and 
there were the police grabbing RUBY. In the excitement 
K^^NTOR stated he does not remember just who was down in the 
basement of the building, as he was concentrating on his own 

KAi\^rOIv st:-oOd that the reason he v/as at the police ' 
station on November 24, 1963, was the fact that the night before, 
so.-ueone vi/ith the Press Corps, asked Chief of Police JESSE CURRY, 
Dallas Police Bepax'tment, what time the transfer would be :.:ade of' 
LEE HAIIVEY OSV//iLD to the Dallas County Jail. Chief CURRY replied 
that if the press v/as back the next morning, November 24, 1033, by 
10:00 AT.I, it would be early enough. KANTOR stated that he slept 
late and walked over 'to the Dallas police station, arriving 
there about 10:40 AIJ, ' November 24, ' 1933, thinking the transfer 
had already been made. Upon arrival he went immediately to the 
basement of the building prior to the time OSWALD was brought 
down to the basement, and was there, as had been sot forth, at

KANTOR stated he was in Dallas frc-i September, 1930, to

jwspaper. Shor'cly after starting work with this paper he

About 2:00 p.n. , when he re-entered the hospital, after 
talking with the officials previo-usly referred to, IvAl\'_'w?^ staged, 
he obsei-ved hospital personnel, identities not Zcnown, in the entrance. 
lie believes they were personnel hecause. of their white garb. If it 
was there he sav/ RUBY raxher than about 1:23 p.u. , the personnel 
Y/ould not remember it because they were not paying ^^V particular 
attention to him. 

K/usTTCR stated af-jer re-enterinj the hospital about 2: GO

This was Sunday, Novenber 24, 1953, at which time RUBY was being led 
by the Dallas Police from an ui^per floor of the jail. KrJ^CP. stated 
he looked directly at RUBY and RUBY appeared to be looking directly 
at him. RUBYj however, showed no signs . f recognition. RUBY'S 
complexion was pasty, his face was grim and his lips v/ere drawn 
tightly together. 

KANTOR gave a note to ART HAT-ILIET, a Dallas police officer, 
who v/orks in the office of Dallas Police Captain GLEN XIKG, asking 
that HATHIST give the note to RUBY. The note read, "JACK, Can I 
please talk to you, SBTa." IiAT.i:.ffiT told him he would try to see 
that RUBY got the note, but cautioned ICAI'ITCR that he could not make 
any promises that RL^Y would get the note. Subsequently, KAINTCR

SANTOR was pointedly told by interviewing agents that RUSY 
aas emphatically denied he was at Parkland Hospital at any tine' 
(November 22, 1963, or subsequent. KA1\"TCR was specifically asked 
vhether he might be mistal^en about seeing RUBY there November 22. 
UlKlOR reiterated he is absolutely certain he saw and spoke with 
•iUBY at the Parkland Hospital on November 22. 

ICANTOR was told that he might be called upon to testify in 
this case. He v/as asked v/hat he would .say if under oath and on the 
witness stand in a court of law to the question, "Did ycu see and 
talk with RUBY at the Parkland Hospital on November 22, l£o3?" 
CAI'iTCR stated he would answer, "Yes," because he is absolutely 
:ert ain he did. 

KANTCR speculate'd that perhaps RUBY has said he v/as not 
It the Parkland Eos_:-ital on November 22, as part of his reported 
)lea of temporary insanity. KAl-JTOR stated be is not acquainted v/ith 
ill facets of such a pic^ but felt it might help RUBY's cause for RUBY to 
ieny being at the hospital v/hen he knov/s he v/as, and that ZANTOR 
/ould have to testify that he sav/ him there. Then too, KANTCR 
stated, RUBY might have been in emotional shock and cannot recall 
jeing -s,t the hospital.

'ound in his possession when he was arrested about seven months ago. 
le refused to answer any questions concerning the pistol or a gun until 
le talked to a lawyer. 

Oswald stated that at various other tines he had been thoroughly 
Interrogated by the FBI; that they had used all the usual interrogation 
jractices and all their standard operating procedure; that he was very 
'aniliar with interrogation, and he had no intention of answering any 
j^UGStions concerning any shooting; that he knew he didnot have to answer 
;he.T. and that he would not answer any questions until he had been given 
;ounscl. He stated that the FBI had used their hard and soft approach to 
lim, they used the buddy system; that he was familiar with all types of 
questioning and had no intention of making any statements. Ee said that 
n the past three weeks when the FBI had talked to his wife, they were 
busive and impolite; that they had frightened his wife and he considered 
heir activities obnoxious. Ke stated that he wanted to contact a Mr. Abt, 
I. New York lawyer whom he did not know but who had. defended the Smith Act 
victims" in 19^9 or 1950 in connection with a conspiracy^ against the 
tovernizent; that Abt would understand what this case was all about and that 
le v/ould give him an excellent defense. lie stated in returning a question 
bout his former addresses that he lived at 4907 I'ligazine Street in New 
)rleans at one time and worked for the William Riley Company; that hs was 
irrect^J in Hew Orleans for disturbing the peace and paid a $10 fine while 
le was demonstrating for the Fair Play for Cuba Cosroittee; that he had a 
'ight v:ith some anti-Castro refugees and that they were released while he 
'as fined. 

Upon questioning by Captain Fritz, he said, "I have no views on the 
resident." "Ify wife and I like the President's family. They are in- 
eresting people. I liave my own views on the President's national policy. 

have a right to express my viev;s but because of the charges I do not 
hink I should comment further." Os\?ald said "I am not a malcontent; 
lOthing irritated me about the President." Ee said that dvuring I962 he was 
aterviewcd by the FBI and that he at that time refused to take a polygraph 
nd that he did not intend to take a polygraph test for the DaJJLas police, 
t this time Captain Fritz showed a Selective Service Card that was taken out 
f his wallet which bore the name of Alex Hidell. Oswald refused to discuss 
his after being asked for an explanation of it, both by Fritz and by James 
ookhoutj the FBI Agent. I asked him if he viewed the parade and he said he 
ad not. I then asked him if he had shot the President and he said he had not. 

asked him if he had shot Governor Connally and he said he had not. Ee did 
ot intend to answer further questions without counsel and that if he could not 
et Abt, then he would hope that the Civil Liberties Union would give him an 
ttorney to represent him. At that point Captain Fritz terminated the inter-

At about 12:35 P.M., iroveniber 23, 15^3, L=e Oo'.;ald v;as interviewed in 
the ofi"ice of Captain Will Fritz of the IIo:rJ.cide Divisioa, Dallas Police De- 
partn:ent. Arno.13 thoce preccnt at this interview wore Inspector Kellcy, 
Captain Fritz, Detectives Scnl:el and Ticrnon of the Uonicido Division and 
£A Eoolcout, FBI. Captain Fritz conducted the Interview which was 
concerned KOGtly with Oswald's places of residence in Dallas and was an 
attempt to ascertain where the bulk of Oswald's bclon^in^s v;ere located In 
Dallas. As a result of the interview, Os\/ald furnished information to 
Captain Fritz that most of his personal effects, including a sea bag, were 
in the gai-ago at the address of Mrs. Paine, 25I5 V/est 5th Street, Irviag, 
Texas . 

The intervievj v/as concluded about 1:10 />. M. and immediately 
thereafter nieKbers of the Iloaicide Division secured a search 
v;arrant and recovered Osv:ald's effects froa the homo of Mrs. 
Paine. Found ar.ons the effects were tAv-o different poses in 
snapshot type photographs taicen of Osv/ald holding a rifle in 
one hand and holdin^j up a copy of a paper called the Militant 
and "The V'orker" in the other hand. Oswald v:a3 wearing a 
revolver in a holster on his riglit side. This photograph was 
enlarged by the Dallas Police Labox-atories and was used as a 
basis of additional ouestioning of Oswald at approximately 
6:00 P.M. that sau.3 evening. 

On IJovember 23, 1953, az 6:00 P.M., in the office of Captain Fritz, 
nor.iicide Division, Dallas Police Department, I was present at an Interview 
with Oswald. Also present were Captain Fritz, FEI Agent Jin Eoolvhoutt, and 
four ofi'cers fro:^ the Ho.zicide Division. This Interview was conducted with 
0s».'ald for the pxirpose of displaying to liin the blow-ups of photographs shov;- 
ing hi::i holding a rifle and a pistol which wore seized as a result of the 
search \/arrant for the garage of Mi'S. Paine at 2515 V'est 5'th Street, Irving, 
To>:as. V.'hen the photographs were presented to Oswald, he sneered at them 
saying that they were fake photographs; that he had been photographed a 
;.-j:i;ber of times the day before by the police and apparently after they 
photographed hiiu they superimposed on the photogx'aphs a rifle and put a gun 
in his pocket. He ■,jt into a long argurient with Captain Fritz about his 
knowledge of photography and asked Fritz a nuinber of tiaes whether the 
Eir.aller photograph was made froni the larger or whether the larger photograph 
was made fron the snaller. lie said ao the proper tine he would show that the 
photographs were falces. Fritz told hi:a that the smaller photogi-aph was taken 
froa his effects at the go rage. Csv.-ald became arrogant and refused to answer 
any further questions concerning the photographs and would not identify the 
photogi-aphs as being a photograph of hinself . Captain Fritz displayed great 
patience and tenacity in attempting to secure frca Oswald the location of what 
apparently is the backyard of an address at which Oswald fonnerly lived, but 
it v/as apparent that Osv/ald, tliougii slightly shaken by the evidence, had no 
intention of furnishing any information. 

The interview was terminated at about 7:15 P.M.

•ptain Fritz, Foetal Inspector Iloln^s, SAIC Sorrels, Inspector Kelley and four 
rbers of the Hordcide Sq^aad. The intox^icj had just begun when I arrived and 
ptain Fritz was a:;ain requesting Oswald to identify the place where the photo- 
raph of hin hcldir::3 the gun was taken. Captain Fritz indicated that it would 
ivo the Police a ^vizX. deal of tir.e if he woui- tell then t;her3 the place was 
cated. Cr.;ald refused to discuss the natter. C::ptain Fritz asked, "Are you 
Corrunist?" Cc'.:ald cntTjercd, "ITo, I am a Tarnist but I am not a Marxist 
ninist". Captain Fritz asked hin what the difference was and Csvjald said it 
:uld take too Icn^ to explain it to hir.. Oswald said that he becare interested 
1 the Fair Play for Cuba Ccr.r.ittee x;hiie he t;as in New Orleans; thj.t ha wrote 

the Ccrrittee's Ilea'^cuai-fcors in ITew York and received some Corrattoe litera- 
jre and a letter signed '^-j .'.lex Plidoll. Ke ijtated that he began to distribute 
:iat literature in ire:.' Grler.ns and it was at that tiir.e that he get into an 
Ltercation i.ith a group a;:d ho was arrested. He said his opinions concerning 
iir Play for Cuba are well known j that he appeared on Bill Stukey's television 
:ogran in iroif Orleans on a number of occasions and was interviewed by the local 

often. JHe denies Imcwing or ever seeing Kidell in New Orleans, said he 
elieved in all of the tenets of the Fair Play for Cuba and the things which the 
;ir Play for Cuba Ccr.-.-ittee stood for, ■whic'!-. was free intercourse with Cuba and 
reedon for tourists of the both countries to travel within each other's borders. 


rong ether things, Os'.jald said that Cuba should h^ave f6^<Hd diplocatic rolaticn- 
•2ip with the United States. I asked hin if he thought that the President's ' 
issassination icould liave any effect on the Fair Play for Cuba Ccmittes. He said 
■ere t;ould be no change in the attitude of the .Irerican people toward Cuba with 
rosident Johnson becc:.".ing President because they both belonged to the car.3 
olitical party and the one x.'ould follo-u pretty generally the policies of the 
ih:;r. Ke stated -'■.at he is an avid reader of Russian literature uliether it is 
jrjTunistic or nctj that he subscribes to "Taa Kilitant", which, he says, is the 
:ekly of the Socialist party in the United Statss (it is a copy of "The Kilitant" 
lat Oswald is cho:;n holding in t:.e photograph taken froa his effects at Irving 
:.r3 3t). At that tire he asked r.3 whether I was an FBI Agent and I said that I 
IS not that I was a r.erber of the Secret- Service. Ha said ;;hen he was standing 
1 front of the Textbook Building and about to leave it, a young crew-cut Ean 
jshed up to bin and said he was frcn the Secret Service, showed a book of 
iontificaticn, and asked hi^. where the phone was. Oswald said he pointed toward 
le pay phone in the building and that he saw the ran actually go to the phone 
jfora ha left. 17 7

I asked Oswald whether u a Harxiet he believed that religion was an opiate 
of the people and he said rery definitely- ao that all organised religions tend 
to become nonopolistie and are the ftanses of a great deal of class warfare. I 
asked hin whether he considered the Catholic Church to be an enes^r of the 
Connmmist philosophy and he said well, there was no Catholicisn in Russiaj 
that the closest to it is the Orthodox Chm*ches but he said he would not further 
discuss his opinions of religion sines this was an attenpt to have him say 80bs» 
thing which could be oonstrtied as being anti-religious or anti Catholic. 

Capt. Frits displayed an Ehco street nap of Dallas which had been found among 
Oswald's effect at the rooming house. Oswald was asked whether the nap was his 
and whether he had put sone sarks on it. He said it was his and reniarked ">ty' 
Qod don't tell ne there's a nark near where this thing happened". The nark was 
pointed out to hia and he said "What about the other narks on the nap?- I put a 
number of narks on it. I was looking for work and narked the places where I went 
for jobs or where I heard there were Jobs". 

Since it was obvious to Captain Friti that Oswald was not going to be coopsratiye, . 
he teminated the inteirriew at that tine. 

I approached Oswald then and, out of the hearing of the others except perhaps one 
of Captain Fritz's nen, said that as a Secret Service agent, we are anxious to 
talk with hin as soon as he had secured counseli that we were responsible for the 
safety of the Presidentj that the Dallas Police had charged hin with the assassi- 
nation of the President but that he had denied it| we were therefore very anxious 
to talk with hifii to nake certain that the correct story was developing as it 
related to the assassitaation. He said that he would be glad to discuss this 
proposition with his attorney and that after he talked to one, we could either 
discuss it with hin or discuss it with his attorney, if the attorney thought it 
was the wise thing to do, but that at the present tine he had nothing nore to say 
to me. Oswald was then handed some different clothing to put on. The clothing 
Included a sweater. Captain Frits nade a nunber of telephone calls to asceirtain 
whether the preparations he had placed into effect for transferring the prisoner 
to the County Jail were ready and upon being so advised. Captain Frits and nembsrs 
of the Detective Bureau escorted Oswald from the Homicide Office on the third 
floor to the basement where Oswald was shot by Jack Ruby. 

On the completion of the interview, SAIC Sorrels and I proceeded to the office of 
the Chief of Police on the third floor and were discussing the interview when we 
heard that Oswald had been shot. We both ran down the steps to the basement. I 
arrived in the ante-roon where they had dragged Oswald. SAIC Sorrels located and 
interviewed Ruby, Someone was beirfing over Oswald with a stethoscope and he 
appeared to be unconscious in very serious condition at that time. I asked Captain 
Fritz what had happened and he jsaid Oswald had been shot by one Jack "Rubio" whom 
the police knew as a tavern operator. Shortly thereafter a stretcher airived and 
I accon^ianied the stretcher t<J the ambulanci which had been hastily backed inio the 
garage. I observed that during the transfer that Oswald was unccnsciou^i when the 
ambulance drove away from the building, I attempted to board a cruiser that ^ -r<] 
apparently was going to follow the atobulancle but I was unable to get into the car J- ' • 
before it pulled away. Special Agents Warner and Patterson had heard of the shoot- 
ing on their radio, prooaadad to Parkland Hospital where Oswald was being taken and 
arrired rsry ahortly mf%ar Onald luidisin^'Vai c% itao oMrganoy antranoa and was

being takan Into the ffiMrgsnoj treatment rooK. One or the other of the83 agents 
vai In close proxlidty to Oswald while he was being treated. When I arrirad at 
tha hospital, I rode vp on the elevator with Dr. Shaw who had looked at Oswald 
as h3 had cone in and was being recalled to tha operating rooa whera Oswald had 
boen taken. While Oswald was in the operating room, no one oth3r than nodical 
porsonnal was present but a Dallas policeman who had accompanied Ocwald in the 
ajnbulance was standing in the doorway of the op'^rating room in operating room 
scrub clothes. Mo other investigating personnel were in the vicinity. In the 
iiTjr.ediate vicinity of the detective was Special Ag^nt Wamar. Oswald mads no 
8tat3m'?nts from the time he was shot until the time of his death. He was un- 
conscious during the ambulance run to tha hospital which I verified through 
Detective Daugherty, who accompanied him. He did not regain conscio\ianess at 
any time during the treatment until he died. At the tiJiw of his death, myself. 
Detective Daugherty and Colonel Oarrison of the Texas State Police were on the \ 
fifth floor of the hospital arranging a security rooB in which to take Oswald, 
in the event he survived the operating room treatment. It was ne. er necessary 
to use this room and upon learning of his death, I proceeded to the morgjue to 
arrange for his family to view the body. When the family heard of the death 
they were in the process of being interviewed by Special Agents Kunkel and Howard, 
and requested to be bi^ught to the hospital. Oswald's .brother, Robert, who had 
also como to tha hospital, was being inteirviewed by Special Agent Howlstt. Before 
the poet mortem was performed, Oswald's family, with the exception of Robert, 
viewed the body, Robert arrived too late to view the body befora the autopsy 
had started and was not permitted by hospital authorities to view the body. The 
family was accompanied during the viewing by the hospital chaplain. 

After Baking airangements through the chaplain and another clergyman for tha 
burial of the body, tha family was returned to a secluded spot under the protec- 
tion of Special Agents Kunkel and Howard, and tha Irving Texas police. Precaution 
was taken to insure their safety in view of the exclt3m7nt caused by the killing 
of Oswald. Special Agents Howard axid Kxinkel did an excellent Job in handling the 
security of this family detail and insurinc their safety. Thereaftar, I was 
called by SAIC Bouck who advised ne that tha President and tha Attorney General 
were concerned about tha safety of this fasdly and Instructed that all precautions 
should be taken to insure that no ham befell thev* SAIC Bouck was advised that 
the family was presently under our protection] we would continue providing 
protection until further notice. 

Later that sane day, I was contacted by SA Robai>tson of the FBI who asked whether 
we had someone with the family. He was assured that we had. Ha requested to be 
advised where the family had been takan. Since their ultimate destination was 
unknown to ne at the time, I assured him that when I learned of their whereabouts 
I would relay it to hln. He said that they received instructions fron tha Attorney 
Ocneral and President Johnson that precaution should be taken to insure the family 

|At 11 pm, Sunday, Iforember ?Uth, Z «a« advised of the location of the family and 
immediately notified Robertson and inquired whether they now wished to take over

CAIT.A.IN Glzn King, Police Dep artment, . ( D.illas, Tcxasj J *" 

Ci'thinl; one oi my primary problems here this morning is going to 
be one of selection. Because in a few brief moments, I'm going to have 
to try to condense days of prejiaratioii for the visit of the President to 
Dallas and weeks of investigation that followed his assassination there 
into some logical order. ' • 

I'm going to have to omit eiitirels rniLiiy points that I might touch 
upon. If I fail to address some jwiut tii:il you ;iro particularly interested 
in, I apologize to you in advance, 'iiiue won't permit me to touch all 
of it. 

I also should explain to you at the outset that I am appearing here 
under certain limitations. Investigiitions into the assassination and the 
events which followed it are continuing. It has been indicated to the 
police department in Dallas the Warren Commission prefers that we 
not comment on certain areas of this investigation and on certain aspects 
of the evidence we have. 

It might seem inconsistent to you, because I might talk about one 
part of a question then not go further on it. There might not be any 
logical or explainable reason for it. It's going to have to be on my 
appraisal of it. So, again on this, I'll apologize. 

The police department involvement can be broken down into som.e 
rather clearly definable categories. 

The first one I would li!:e to touch on v/as the preparation for the 
visit of the President to Dallas. At that time we occupied purely a 
supportive role. The Air Force was primarily responsible for getting 
the President and his party to Dallas. The Secrot Service was primarily 
responsible fof his safety while he was in Dallas. 

We occupied, as I say, a supportive role. We performed a supportive 
function here. To do this we met with the Secret Service and with other 
oinciui r.^encies and civic organizations in Dallas at least daily and on 
most days many times beginning on Noveu.hcr IS. 

On that day we received the first ofTicial notice that the Prcsident_ , 
r/ould visit Dallas. We had known v. it prior to this tims'Tjuircourse -^ 
We had read it in the newspapers that he was going to take a trip, and 
that Dallas was going to be one of the stops on the trip. But it was 
only on the 13lli that we received official notification that he would 
be in Didlas. This came through the Secret Service. 

From that time, as I say, until the iiml when he arrived, there 
•were at least daily conferences. Most days — and on those days almost 
the whole day for .some members of the department — were devoted 
to the conferences prep.- .ring for the President's visit. 

The plans for security that were eventually worked out called for 
our assignment of manpower at three specific locations. The first one 
was at Dallas' Love Field, where the President's plane was to land. We 
assigned a dei)uty chief and 5-i men to that location to contain the crowd 
and to perform those functions that had to he performed so that the 
President's party could leave Love Field on time to make his sjx-ech. 

The second place was the route the motorcade would take. Prior to ' .' 
the visit, our deputy chief of trafiic traveled the route several times in'"^ 
the company of Secret Service men and decided with them the loci-' ' 
lions where officers would be assigned. , 


Glen D. KincT R>rh-!hit. Jldi 
King Exhibit No. 4 


KiNE. . (ASNE) . .23173. .ch 

We put men at all signalized intersections. We put two to four men 
at all locations where turns would be made — because it was believed 
that there would be a bigger concentration of the viewing public there — 
at all overpasses, railroad trestles, bridges. Every place the President's 
motorcade would travel under, we assigned additional men to. 

On our own, we assigned detectives in the middle of the blocks 
where we thought the greatest number of viewers would be. Jn all, we 
had 178 men assigned to the parade route. 

The third location was the Trade Mart, the building at which the 
President was to make his speech. We assigned 63 men to work ouUide 
there, working the parking area, making sure everything was in order 

Inside we had the deputy chief and 150 men. Our association with 
the press during this part of it was rather limited. As I said, the Secret 
Service was the primary agency of jurisdiction. We were aiding them as 
best we could. Most of the contact with the press during this part of it _ 

was either with the Secret Service or the public relations organization^ t^/*«Vu|.. 
Mr. McKnight mentioned to you. ^ 

With the assassination and the few seconds that it took, our posi- 
tion changed from one of support to the agency with primary investi- 
gative jurisdiction. When the President was shot, it became our re- 
sponsibility to investigate in an attempt to determine who had com- 
<?K^~TiuLU!(J the violation and cilect •A* arrest. 

We were fortunate that we were able to talk to a person at the lo- 
cation of the events who gave us a description of a person, ap employe 
who, he said, had been in the building prior to the assassi n ation but 
was not there following it. 

We broadcast this description on our police radio within a very few 
minutes after the assassination. The description was of a slender white 
male, about 30 years of age,, about five feet ten, weighing about 105 
pounds. At the time he was seen, he was carrying something that looked 
like either a 30-30 rifle or some type of a Winchester. 

The next time we heard of this person or had any contact was at 

1:18 pjn. A citizen came on the police radio and reported to our radio 

dispatcher that a member of our deptartment had been shot in the 400 

1/ * block of East 10th, which is an estimated two miles from the location 

where the President was assassinated. 

A later investigation revealed that one of our o£Bceis, J. D. Tippit, 
had been shot at that location and was dead on arrival at Parkland 
Hospital. Because Tippit is dead and because Oswald the man who, we 
eventually learned, shot him is also dead, we can only speculate on what 
happened. But this seems logical to us and this is what we believe did 

W'e know that Tippit was driving his squad car east on 10th Street; 
that he pulled alongside Oswald, who was walking west on 10th on the ^ 

«outh side of the street; that he spoke to him briefly across the front ^ 

seat of the automobile. Then he got out of the car and started to walk 
around the front of it. When he reached the front of the car, Oswald 
opened fire and Tippit was shot three times. He was hit twice in the 
head and once in the chest. We believe that any of the wounds would 
have probably been fatal. 

Oswald fled the scene on foot. A short time later the department . 
received information that he had entered a theater, the Texas Theater, 
approximately seven blocks away from the scene where the officer was 
shot. Our policemen converged on the theater. He was placed under 
arrest and brought to City Hall approximately an hour and ten minutes 
after the assassination of the President. 

When you stand at the point of solution of an offense and you look 
back toward its commission, you see a very clearly defined pattern. It 
is easy to see each step of it. It is a little bit different when you stand 
at the point of the offense and attempt to look towards th e solution. ^j^/ fj^ .fftT 
We were extremely fortunate to be able to effect the aw c e tf ^n such a 
short amount of time. 

By the time Oswald arrived at the police station, there was already 
a horde of newspapermen in the hallway. Within a very few minutes ■ - 

of the shooting of the President, they started coming into the police 
station — newtpapar nynt^rr* lelrvi>iiM< m<m silh trl^viniiin M)ui|>inpnt 
cameras, cable*. 

We have been xsriticized. and Derhan* with iiiittifi<<atinn fr>» •iu«».i«.». 

the newsmen to remain in the hallways, for allowing newsmen to view 

the investigation and to keep in constant touch with the progress of 

the investigation. We felt that we had to do so, and for a variety of reasons.

be Icaviii); ourselves open to a eharfie that we were usin^ improper ac- ^ 
tion. dure>». jihysical abuse, all of these thin;;-. 3 

.'\s a. matter of fact, a short lime after the newsmen came into the 
police station, one of Ihem did hol.l up a pieliire of Oswald an.l sai.l, 
"This is the person who is ■.ii-piited of a»-a»inalinj: the I'le-ident 
looks like. .M least this is what he did look like. 1 don't l<ni'w wlial he 
looks like now after an hour in the eii-lody of the police ileparliiieiil. " 

This was just a murmur, liul I am convinced that if we had excluded 
the newsmen, this would not have been merely a murmur. It woul.l have 
been a deafeninp roar. We felt that the newsmen had to be there. 

Now. blessed also with hindsight, I am sure we would m;ike some 
changes in what we did. There is no question that the iifw>men there 
interfered with the investigation, ^'ou saw the scenes in our hallway. 
To bring a prisoner from our jail to our liomi. ide office, the liuicaii 
that was handling this, you have to bring him for a short distance down 
a hallway. This is the way the building is arranged. 

It is not the most desiral)le arrangement in I he world, but il is the 
one we have to work with. With n(w>iiuii in ilie halbva.v. with the 
noise that was constant outside the honiici.le Imreau. certainl,v thiv had 
some efTcct on the investigative |)ro(eilure,-. Il was to a eertain exleiit 

This is not an attempt on my part lo evade any res])onsibilit.v here 
in this field. The newsmen admittedly were tlieCc because we pirmilled 
them to be there. Had we so chosen, we could have excluded I hem. So 
this is not on my jjart a condemnation of the newsmen for exercising 
a privilege that we had given. Still their presence there was a himlering 
factor to us. 

The next and last point that I think I will have time to talk alioul 
was the transfer and the resulting deatii of Oswald. There lins been quite 
a lot of comment about our announcement of the time of transfer. This 
perhaps is an academic point, but 1 think it is one that should be made. 
It has been said that we told the newsm. n that the transfer would 
be made at ten o'clock on Sunday morning. This is not exactly the case. 
On Saturday night, some of the newsmen c;'.mc into our adiiiinistralive 
offices and pointed out to us that they had lieeii there for some hours. 
They told us they were hungry, that thi.-y were tired and that they 
would like to get something to eat but Ihal they had come to Dallas ' ' (,^ 

from considerable distances anil couldn't alford to lie away from the sta- •<'.'/• 

tion when something of importance happened. They asked if we were ") ' ,* 

going to transfer Oswald that night. " / ^

o'clock in the niorninj; when the streets w.rr vacant and di>i-ilcd 
wouKI have been the proper time. Well, tliore arc a couplrof fallacies 
in this. The .sircel.s were not vacant and deserted at Ihivc o'clock in the 
morning, and the hallways were not vacant and deserted at three oelock 
in the morning. The .scenes that you just sjiw on sliilcs might well have 
been made at three o'clock in the morning. I don't know what lime they 
were made, but they could have been made almost at any lime of ihc 

There \va.s not any time at which the newsmen said. "'VYcll. Ufs 
close ilown for the day and reassemble here at seven o'clock in the morn- 
ing." They were there around the clock. People were in the siircts 
around the clock, so regardless of the lime we selected, we were going 
to have to make a Iran.sfer with people present. 

The hours of ilarkness we felt were bad. Wc needed as great ii 
degree of visibility as po.ssible to provide as great a degree of prolection 
as possible. We needed daylight. Wc fell that da>light worked best 
for us. We were not la.\ in our efforts to provide sp«-urity unil we didn't 
approach this with the lackadaisical .iltitudc we have l>een charged with 

Obviously our efforts were ina<lequate, because Oswald wa> killed in 
our allempt to transfer him. But we did take precautions prior lo the 
transfer, prior to the murder — precautions we thought woghl be en- 
tirely adequate. 

The newsmen began to as.semble in the parking area very early in 
the morning. Wc went into the parking area and requested them to 
leave. Then memliers of the department went over the entire parking 
area. We looked every place where a person could conci'ivably hide. 
We checked every vehicle in the parking stations. We even opened the 
trunks of these cars and looked inside lo nuike sure that no one was 
hiding there. 

We stationed men on all doorways leading into the basement, all 
ramps leading into the basement, all stairways, all elevators, ramps — 
everything loading into the basement. Then wc brought the new.smcn 
back in, checking their credentials — if they were not recognii!e<l — us 
they came in. 

I am not now at liberty to say how Ruby came into the basement 
and was able to kill the prisoner we had. I am able lo siiy that it was 
a tempwrary breakdown in security at one s|)ecific location. An officer, 
who was assigned in a place, because of circumstances that occuiTed at 
his place of assignment, failed to see Ruby when he entered, and Ruby 
was able to commit the murder. 

Again, there is no question in my mind that the presence of the 
newsmen in the basement made it possible for Ruby to enter the base- ^ 

ment and remain there for the length of time that it took to bring the 
prisoner out of the jail office and made it possible for him to kill the 
prisoner. , 

If there had been nothing but police ofncers there — we. knew each ' , 

other, but we didn't know most of the newsmen who were there — I ^ jV"^ 

am sure we- would ha ye recognized an alien person and wotdd have been • J_/^ ^ 

able to take the appropriate action to prevent the occurrence that did r\ ^ V ''>^_ 

happen. J J^ \ 

Again this is not a condemnation of the press for being there and it LVi 

is not an attempt on our part to evade the rcsiwnsibility that wc had "-^ 

either. Newsmen were there we permitted them to be there. 

My next remark I hesitate to make. I feel like I .ini -ur. ('•i-tir ,

-/ -H ' I Mr. Ulack: As'T said when we introdurcd this panel, we have here 

^^^^ this morning only people who are basically friendly toward the press 

vjut^' but who are still concerned about some aspects of the performance at 

L^. Dallas. 

Our next speaker, Mr. Iloma Hill, is chairman of the Public Rela- 
tions Committee of the State Bar of Texas and has been in that post for 
a number of .years. .\s a result, we owe him quite a debt for the fact 
that Texas is one of the states where Canon 35 has not-- been in efTecl. 

As you know, it is the practice in Texas for judges to have the au- 
thority to permit cameras in their court. Mr. Hill has supported the 
press in this position down through the years and in many other of the 
fights down there. lie has consistently been a defender of the press. 

Mr. Hill is a gradmitc of Baylor University. He b«is been a director 
and vice president of, the State Bar of Texas. In addition to his chairr. 
manship of the I'ublic Relations Committee, he has served as a 
member of the special committee that determined this policy of the 
bar on Canon 35. 

In 19C0, he received from the Texas Sigma Delta Chi nn award for 
service in journalism in Texas for outstanding contributions to freedom 
of information. 

So he comes to us with good credentials as our friend. ^ 

Early this year, Mr. Hill, in a letter to President Herb BruckefTKoidT ^ 
"The news media was very guilty of putting public officials under pres- 
sure and detailing evidence in such a manner that it would almost have 
been impossible to have ever given Lee Oswald a fair trial within the 
United States." 

He is concerned about the ramifications of this in Texas. He sees ua 
in danger of losing some ground that has been gained down there. We ■ 
are very glad to have Mr. Hill with us to detail the progress itself. 

Mr. Homa Hill: I am glad that I. was introduced as a friend of 
the press in the past. When I get through here today, though, there 
may be those who wonder. 

I hope I come out as well as Mf. Brucker did a few years ago 
when he came to Texas as chairman of your Freedom of Information 
Qommittee and made a speech. The first half of his speech was devoted 
to freedom of the press, the second half was to a defense of the Supreme 
Court of the United States at our annual convention of the State Bar. 
Many of the people were represented in their thinking by a man next 
to me who, at the conclusion of Mr. Brucker's remarks, said, "I don't 
agree with a damn thing he has said, but I accord him the right to say 

We look forward in July at our State Bar convention to hearing Mr. 
Ralph McGill. I think it is well that we hear each other at times. 

I am glad to come here today to associate with men who exercise 
such responsibility in molding public opinion in the United States. I 
have had the good pleasure of working with news media through many 
years. I had a good beginning back in college when I had the job of 
being chauffeur, butler, and valet to distinguished guests who visited 

the Baylor campus. For some six hours one day I had the pleasure of • -V 

being with William Allen White, George B. Dealey and Dean Walter ^, 1 'v 

Williams of the School of Journalism at the University of Mis.souri. So 
I have always thought of you and the men who comprise the editorial 
profession as being men of that caliber.

thing. I myself think there is never any harm in study and would like

But I think this is a pretty serious matter of state that you have 
raised and we had better not leave il to a momentary opinion but bet-

Mr. Black: I might say this is one area in which we very much 
look forward to the counsel and advice of Mr. Rogers. 
Do we have other questions for members of our panel? 
Mr. David E. Gillespik, Charlotte Observer: Mr. Chairman, any 
of the members of the panel might want to comment on this q.'cstion. 
since I am sure all of them are familiar with the problem that Eric 
Sevareid wrote about in his analysis of what happened to the break- 
down of justice and order in Dallas. 

His theory was that Dallas, although it is metropolitan in area, has 
not developed a metropolitan scn.-.t' of the dispensation of justice in the 
, J -iTj^gJL contact of its officials with the press and with the public. 
^ fji^f*^^^^ We may have seen sonu- of this perhaps in interviews with the judge 
^ui'tnni — Belli we can discount of course — but is there not something 
Jo (ic snid in this case for the haiulling of the press and the public by 
th'^ individuals involved — the police chief, district attorney, the judge 
j;! i so on? Is thire anythis'.j; to be said on this side? 

"Ir. M( Knight: I made myself a promise and I will attempt to keep 
it. I ilid read this piece, and I don't remember all of it now, of course. 
But I would like to confine any remarks 1 have to the press aspect of 
ti.ii-' sti>ry and not to the problems of my study. 

1 come here, I suppose, wit'i a certain amount of sin and guilt, as 
any other i>erson docs in the room. We are not pure. A<lmittedly we 
i'!:!i!i- many mistakes, but 1 would prefer not to debate them unless you 
have si)ecific points in any areas. 

Mk. Bl.\< k: I'erhaps Captain King could comment on that as far 
as the police are concerned. 

('.viT.MN King: I think it probably would be improper for me to 
t<.iiiiiii-nt on il even before the other members of the panel. As a mem- 
ber of uu oilicial organization of the city of Dallas, the comments that 
he made were to a large extent, or did to a large extent, concern my 
(lepail iiienl. 1 -am likely to be biased in my viewpoint. 

Mh. Bi-ACK: Mr. Ilill, would you care to comment on il? 
i slio Id say, which 1 didn't in my introduction, that Mr. Hill is not 
from Dallas but from Fort Worth. You must take this into account 
oil aiiylliing he says about Dallas.- 

Mr. Hill: As an active member and committeeman of the Fort 
Worth Chand)er of Commerce, one week after the CAB Examiner held 
against us on the regional airpjorl, I might be a little prejudiced in my 
.einarks. But I am inlercsled in what the j;entlemaii was saying about 
the city of Dallas not being c()sino|)olitan. Uvor in Fort Worth, where 
we wear shirt sleeves to the Fort Worth Ciub, we consider Dallas as 
sort of an Eastern city. The lawyers when lliey have parties over there, 
lliey wear tuxes; we don't. 

I had some remarks which I was going to make about the city of 
Dallas and deleted them. But Fll say this, as a citizen of Fori Worth 
and living nearby, we furnished Le-e Oswald to Dallas. We got him 
secondhand though from New York — but it could have happened any- 
where, as the man from San Francisco said. J will say this, I do not 
know of any city in America which is more intelligenl, more .cidtured 
and with finer solid citizenry than the city of Dallas.

I v;in tJvt to «lure lie .stop.s talking. Captain King, 1 don't know wliclher 
\,ni read a ni.igazine called "Connnentary." But there are constantly 
.irli.'.es and rumors coming out that we don't really know the story of 
November i-i. "Commentary" has carried the most detailed account. I 
am going to ask you a question. If the answer is "yes," that is all I want 
to know. 

Is there anything, that gives you reason to have doubt about these 
events of November 22? 

Captain King: You didn't reach that point with this one fell 
swoop, but I will take a stab at it. 

There have been so many things reported, in the press that if I say 
"yes, the things that have been reported in the press are true," then I 
am saying all sorts of things that contradict each other are i)robably 
true or that we believe them to be true. 

The things that have been generally published, the things that have 
been given the widest distribution, the things that are generally, I think, 
throughout the United States held to be true are, I believe, tfue. I don't 
really expect anything of a startling nature to come forward. 

Mr. William Hill: Well, for instance in this particular article to 
which I have reference, it was implied that it is not known for sure that 
Oswald did kill Tippit. 

Captain King: The way you can become legally sure of anything 
is to have a trial. There was not a trial here and, very obviously and 
very unfortunately, there can't be one. So there will forever be this 
absence of legal determination. In my opinion, the only absence of 
determination is a legal one. 

Mr. Willi.^m Hill: Well, for instance, at the time that the descrip- 
tions were picked up, whoever it was that did kill Tippit — I am being 
the devil's spokesman now — the article indicated a description of the 
man who did kill Tippit tlid not match Osw;dd's. 

Captain King: It didn't match in all details but it matched up verj' 
closely. The height might be a little bit oil. But a doscri]>tion is not an 
exact thing and, in my opinion, based on my experience as a police 
ofRcer, this was not a description that was at all out of line. We get 
eye-witness descriptions in all kinds of offenses that arc inaccurate in 
certain details. The description that I heard broadcast was not far from 
the truth. 

Mr. McKnight: May I rescue the Cai)tain on one point, knowing 
the restrictions around. There are two points I think, should be made. 

First of all, all of you will recall that Oswald went home and changed 
,clothing after the assassination of the President and before the murder 
of Officer Tippit. 

Number two, probably Captain King couldn't say this, but I think 
there are witnesses to the Tippit shooting. I don't know whether "Com- 
mentary" mentioned this. 
^Tn Ri . - c '- .;-?^!..r.,:>-yoq7-&3rb-L.-.K?v:-3-!;s 3 a ViUeslit TTT? 


Mr. RoBi;RT W. Lucas, Hartford Times: Captain, you said you were 
not at liberty to say how Jluby got into the basement. Later you said 
that the pressure of the newsmen made it^iOwUiieMor hnii to get mto 
the basement. Then you also said that something happened at one of 
the locations where you apparently had guards. Can you tell us any- 
thing more about that? 

Captain Kino: I don't recall having said the pressure of the news- 
men made it possible for him to get into the location. I said sor.Kthing 
had occurred that distracted the attention of one of the officers on his 
tasi^ned position and made it possible.

the efforts of the newsmen. 

As a matter of fact, I can say this additional thing. There has been 
speculation that he came in through collusion with a i.ulice ofTucr. There 
has been speculation that he came in through collusion with newsmen y^ 

or a newsman. The facts as we believe them to e.\ist indicate that this ,'^ 

is not true, that there was not collusion with either a police officer or ,' / 

with a newsman. 

Mr. Hemiy Schulte, Savannah News-Press: We have spent the 
morning chastizing ourselves because of a potential miscarriage of jus- 
tice, but I think what we are all overlooking is the fart that this was 
the story of the century and that people like us, editors all over the 
country and the world, wanted everything they could got out of Dallas. 
I for one wanted everything. 

Now in view of this, and with this in mind, I'd like to ask Mr. Mc- 
Knight, as a newspaperman who was on the scene, if you had this to do 
over again, how might you have done it differently antl still perform 
your mission as a newspaperman? 

Mr. McKmcht: It is a good question, and I agree with what you 
say. I would not change a thing. I didn't have time to change anything. 
I had four hours and a half that afternoon to get out three editions. 

We are not challenging what was written, and that is the reason I 
prefer to stay out of that area. I am only challenging the manner of 
coverage. That is our problem more than what was written. 

Yes, I think you were entitled to every shred of information out of 
Dallas, and we certainly attenii)ted to give it to you from the local 
sources. I only raised the question for the future — what do we do with 
this problem of "the regiments," as I believe Herb Brucker termed it? 
It is a problem of coverage, not what is written. I would not challenge 
one line of copy that went out of Dallas or I wouldn't change it if we 
had to do it over again. 

^|n TKi Af-T.-- A lief -rou-ctinii frnyn Al Fripnilly^ 

Mr. Alkked Frik.ndly, Wa.shington Post: I would like to direct this 
question to Captain King. 

You say at one point that you examined the credentials of the press 
in the police station at the time of the Oswald transfer. We, on the other 
hand, heard this was vcyy perfunctory. 'I'hcre is one story that a fel- 
low went into the basement, and did not have proi)cr creilentials. They 
invited him in merely on the say-so of another man who identified him. 
The other man had never seen tin- jxilicc olTlcer before. My question is 
are you satisfied tnat inspection of the credentials of the press was sys- 
tematic and exacting? 

Cai'tain King: I think really to answer liiis properly you have to 
take into consideration the conditions and circumstances. If we had 
had time to set up a system wlureiiy we established [Kjsitive idcntifica- . "' ' 
tion for the iu;wsmen, this probably wouldn't have been adequate, -'"i ' v^- ^

Newsmen came into the city of Dallas who had no idcatificntion locally. 

Obviously, for many of them, it was the first time they had ever 
been in Dallas in their lives. So they arc not going to have local identi- 
fication and they are not known personally to us. Many of them came 
in whom we were able to identify and who didn't have any identifica- 
tion with them. They had come down and had left it in their hotel, 
something like this. 

It has been our experience in the past that the newsmen are the 
best allies you can have in keeping merely interested bystanders away 
from the scene of a police incident. At the scenes of our automobile 
accidents, at scenes of burglaries and robberies and all of these offenses, 
if a newsman comes up to one of our officers whom he does not know 
and the officer doesn't know him and the newsman does not have his 
identification with him, we tell the officers to check with other news- 
men. If the other newsmen present arc willing to identify him and are 
willing to verify the fact that he is a newsman, then he is admitted. 
We feel newsmen don't want outsiders in. 

This did occur probably. So far as a positive identification of the 
newsmen, no, we didn't, we couldn't, I think. We did check credentials 
on them and we did, I think, use reasonable methods. 

Mr. Black: Is Jack Kruegcr still with us? 
CNo rofiponne-V 

A Member: He slipped out a few minutes ago. 

Mr. Black: I wanted to ask him if he wanted to participate in this

I want to thank the members of our panel for a very stimulating 

\ An Address by The Honor adle Arthur J. GoLDnERC, 
^Associate Justice, Supreme Court of the UNiTf;D States 

Mr.^Iiles H. Wolff, Greensboro Daily News, presiding: When 
I was asked to introduce Justice Arthur Goldberg, I had every intention 
of sticking to truly biographical data. \ 

I was going to tell you that he was horn in Chicago, attended 
public schools there and wound up receiving his B.S. and Doctor of 
Jurisprudence degrees from Xorthwestern. 

I had intended >o tell you, further, that he practiced law in Chicago 
and gradually moved^'into the labor union field to the exclusion of other 
work. He became General C<iunscl for the CIO, General Counsel for 
the United Steel WorkerSvof Ann'rica and then Special Counsel for the 

As you can see, he was ton man in his field. 

All of these legal jobs, aiuKtliey were good ones, too, came to an 
end in 1961 when President KcOiicily ai>i)ointed him to the high post 
-of Secretary of Labor. _ \ 

The President did not leave him^Jlurc long. In" 1962, he asked the 
Secretary of Labor to move on to Ihl Supreme Court as As.sociate 
Justice. 'VS. 

At this point I could have stopped, H^a unfortunately, I started 
reading the clips on our speaker. They weru. fascinating, and I felt 
constrained to pass a few choice items on to you. \^ 

For example. Time Magazine had this to report\Goldbcrg gradu.ited

year-old, he was admitted to law s(h(i<il at Norths estern\l'niversity

scripts represented the work of only one person.

Glen D. King Exhibit f^ 

Gentletaen, 1 ara grateful for the opportunity to tell you in brief ^ 

de' iil some of the problems faced by the Dallas Police Departracnt, before, ^ 

at the tine of and subsequent to the assassination of President John P, -j- ] 

Kennedy. Because of the nagnitude of the criwc it is difficult for ne to . < ,>^ 

know exactly what to include and what to orait. In approxinately fifteen '^^ ■■ 
minutes I must try to summarize the days of preparation of the President's .x*^ 
visit to Dallas, and the weeks of investigation followin^j his assassination'^ 
there. « "-■ 

% remarks are necessarily going to be to a certain extent incoherent./". 

An account of all that has occurred would take hours rather than the few /• ,., 

'' "^> 

minutes I have. My task is primarily one of selection and I apologiza to -* , 
you in advance if i fail to address points in which you are particularly ? ^ 
interested. ^ 

Another thing 1 must explain at the outset - investigations into the 
circumstances surrounding the assassination continue. While we have no 
indication of exactly when they will be completed we confidently expect 
that everything that can be learned will be learned and will eventually 
be made public knowledge. At the present time certain information in 
possession of investigative agencies has not been released. It has been 
indicated to the Dallas Police Department that the Warren Commission, 
studying the assassination, would prefer that no comments be made regarding 
certain evidence accumulated against Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby. So, 
to a degree I am here under limitations. Certain things I am not permitted 
to discuss. I must honor the limitations placed upon me. At times I might 
seem inconsistent to you, for I may discuss parts of a question and must 
decline comraent on other parts. Perhaps I might err in my appraisal of 

King Exhibit No. 5 


what is proper for discussion and what is not. I have to be the one who 
decides how far I go, I do proraise you this - I will not fail to answer 
any question you pose because of a desire to be evasive. I will not refrain 
frora answering merely because I think ny answer will not reflect favorably 
on rac or ny Department. If I fail to field one of your questions because 
I think it is too hot to handle 1 will very frankly tell you so. 

The activities of the Dallas Police Department, so fax as this subject 
is concerned, fall into rather clearly definable categories. One is our 
preparation for the visit of President Kennedy to the City of Dallas on 
Novetaber 22, 1963. 

The Police Departwent first beczirac officially aware of his impending 
visit on November 13, nine days prior to his arrival. Of course, we knew 
from newspaper accounts in advance of this date tliat he was coming. It was, 
however, on V.'ednesday, November 13, that we first iset v/ith members of the 
Secret Service to receive authoritative notification that the President 
would visit Dallas. From that tine until November 22 there were at least 
daily conferences and on most days several conferences were held. 

I night point out here that at that tine the position of the Dallas 
Police Department was purely supportive. Tlie Air Force had primary 
responsibility for seeing that the President arrived ih Dallas safely, 
and the Secret Service had primary responsibility for his continued safety 
after his arrival. It was the responsibility of the Police Department to 
assist the Secret Service in any manner possible. 

Our plans for security called for attention to three specific locations - 
first, the airport at which the President would de pliuie; second, the route 
his motorcade would follow to the Trade Mart, the location at which he was 



King Exhibit No. 5 — Continued 


to speak, and; third, at the Trade Mart itself. 

To provide as £;rcat a decree of safety as possible a Deputy Chief and 
fifty-four raenbcrs of the Pallas Police Dcpartnient v/cre at Dallas Love 
Field when the President's plane arrived. They assisted in crowd control 
i\t that location and did those tilings necessary to insure that the President's 
Kotorcade left the airport on tine. 

An additional 178 men were assigned to the parade route. As a part of 
the planning process raeiiibers of the Police Department and representatives 
of the Secret Service traveled over the parade route and decided at what 
locations officers v/ould be needed. At tlie request of the Secret Service 
we assigned an officer at each signalized intersection through which the 
motorcade would pass. Additionally, we assigned from two to four men at 
eacli intersection where a turn would be made, because of the belief tliat 
at these locations the crowd would be heaviest. We assigned men to all 
locations where the motorcade would pass under a bridge or railroad trestle. 
Without being asked to do so we assigned plain-clotJies detectives and 
uniform officers to patrol blocks where the crowds were expected to be the 
heaviest, . " ■ 

At the Trade Mart we assigned 63 men to work the parking area outside 
and 150 men under the command of a Deputy Cliief to provide security inside. 

In all 447 men were used on specific assignments associated with the 
President's visit. The very great majority of these men were off-duty 
personnel* Approximately 400 off-dut^' men were brought back on duty to 
supplement the regularly assigned details. Of 1100 total strength of the 
Department nt least 350 were on duty at the time of the President's arrival. 

1 mentioned that the role of the Pallas Police Department in preparing ' 

. 3 

King Exhibit No. 5 — ContiiuiP'^' 


for the visit of the President v;as a supportive one. In the few seconds' 
it tool; to fire the shots that took the President's life the role of the 
nepartruent chanced from one of support to one of primary jrcsponsibility 
for tha invcotication of his death. 

At the location of the assassination investigators were able to quickly 
determine that an employee had been at uvirk prior to the assassination, but 
was raissinn; after the offense. A description of this nan was secured and 
was broadcast on the police radio. The description was "A slender white 
male, about 30 years of age, about 5' 10" tall, weighing about 165 pounds, 
carrying what looked like a 30-30 rifle or sorae type V>'inchester." 

At 1;18 p.ra, a citizen cane on the police radio, to report that an 
Officer had been shot in the 400 block of east 10th street, 
2 miles from the scene of the assassination of the President. 

Later investigation revealed that Dallas Police Officer J. D. Tippit 
had approached a man subsequently identified as Lee Harvey Oswald, and had 
been killed by Oswald, Since both Officer Tippit and Oswald arc now dead, 
v/e can only speculate on wliat probably happened at the scene of the Officer's 

Officer Tippit was driving his squad car east on Tenth Street, when 
he observed Oswald walking west on tlie south side of the street. The 
Officer pulled alongside Oswald, and talked to hira briefly across the front 
seat of the police car. The Officer then got out of the car and walked 
around to the front of it. When he reached the front of the car Oswald 
opened fire. His three shots struck Officer Tippit in the temple, the 
forehead and the chest. Any of the three would probably have been fatal. 
Oswald fled the scene on foot, and a short time later the Dcpartnwjnt received 


King Exhibit No. 5 — Continued 


information that he had entered a theatre in the 200 block of West Jefferson, 
seven blocks from tlic scene of the Officer's death. Policcracn converged on 
the theatre, and a searcii was bcgiin. Officer M. N. McDonald approached a 
man later identified as Oswald in the contor section of tho thoatco, thrao 
rows fron the back. As he approached, Oswald said, "This is it," and 
attempted to draw a gun. Officer McDonald grappled with him, disarmed hira 
and placed hin under arrest. He was ironediateiy taken to the Central Police 
Station for interrogation by rccmbers of the Homicide and Robbery Bureau. 
He arrived at Police Headquarters approximately an hour and ten minutes 
after he killed the President. 

Vuien Oswald arrived at the police station it was already cro-^ed with 
newsmen. They had begun to arrive within minutes of the assassination, 
and within an hour the hallways resembled the scenes you saw on your 
televisions and in your newspapers. From that time until many hours after 
the murder of Oswald tlie hallways were congested by newsmen. 

We have been severely criticized by a great number of people for 
permitting newsmen to remain in the hallways of police headquarters. Perhaps 
this criticism is justified. At that time v;e felt a necessity for permitting 
r' the newsmen as much latitude as possible. V/c realized the magnitude of the 
\ incident the newsmen were there to cover, V/e realized that not only the 
nation but the world would be greatly interested in what occurred in Dallas. 
We believed that we had an obligation xo niake as v/idely known as possible 
everything we could regarding the investigation of the assassination and 
the manner in wliich ve undertook that investigation. i 

We realized that if we hid the most important prisoner of the century 
from the public eye, accusations would be made that he actually did not ^, 



King Exhibit No. 5 — Continued 


co.-Mit the offense with which he was charged and that we had fabricated 
a suspect. 

VVe realized that improper investigation procedures could be charged 
against us. As a matter of fact, even with the openness v;ith which we 
uptoroachod tho inveatics^tion we heard murmur a in thla vain. \a short tine 
after Oswald's arrest one newsman held up a photograph and said, 'Tlhis is 
v/hat the nan charged with the assassination of the President looks like. 
Or at least this is what he did look like. \ie don't know what he looks 
like after an hour in the custody of the Dallas Police Department." 

I believe that what was a whisper would have been a deafening roar 
of protest had we failed to make available to the public all possible 
information concerning our investigation. Many persons who criticized 
us for permitting newsmen to remain at the scene have admitted that they 
lived in front of their television sets with their newspapers in their 
hands. We were, I am sure, in a position of being "Damned if we did and 
damned if we didn't.** 

' V.'e have been further criticized for announcing to the press the time 
of tlie anticipated transfer of Oswald. Without in any way attempting to . 
evade responsibility for any action which we took, let me briefly explain 
how the statement of a 10 o'clock transfer came about. 

On Saturday night some of the newsmen, who had been at the station 
constantly since shortly after the assassination, approached our Assistant 
Chief and asked if they would have time to get soraething to eat before 
Oswald was transferred. They were told that if they were back by 10 o'clock 
the next morning, they would be in time for the transfer. This statement 
did indicate to the newsmen our intention to transfer Oswald sometime after 


King Exhibit No. 5 — Continued 



10:00 a.n. Sunday ind it did indicate our | intention to permit thera to be 
present when the transfer was made. VJe didn't know exactly at v;hat tine 

we could effect the transfer. V.'e were sure it would not be prior to 

""1 ■ , 
10 o' clock.. j 

V/c l;avc been oskcd why we did not transfer hin under cover of darkncoa 

when the police station and the streets were empty. In the first place, 

visibility at nipht is greatly reduced and we felt that we needed as great 

a degree of visibility as possible to provide as great a degree of security 

as possible. We felt that darkness would work against us and v;ould serve 

as an ally to anyone who might choose to attack from that darkness. 

I Also, so far as the crowd at the City Hall was concerned there was 

little difference between 3:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. At no hour were the 

hallways clears I am sure that if we had waited a week to make the 

transfer there would have still been a large number of newsmen in the 

police station around the clock. 

Again, this is not an attempt on my part to evade responsibility. 

Obviously, the newsmen were in the police station because we permitted 

them to be there. They were exercising a privilege we gave thera^ 

' The attempted transfer of Oswald to the County Jail was not 

accompanied by the lackadaisical attitude with v;hich we I;ave been 

frequently charged. We took far greater precautions than we believed 

to be necessary. Prior to the transfer members of our Department went 

into the basement and required everyone there to leave. With flashlight^ 

they then searched every nook and cranny where anyone might hide. They 

searched every automobile there to be sure that no one had concealed 

himself, even opening the trunks to make sure that they were not occupied. 


King Exhibit No. 5 — Continued 


Man were s-fcationed on every stainvay , every elevator, eveiy ranp and 

every doorway leading to the parking area. Then -^'j newsmen were permitted 

to cone back into the parking area after their credentials had been checked. 

I am not permitted to say how Jack Ruby gained entrance into the 
police bascr;cnt. Wc arc convinced wc know exactly how it waa done, but Z 
have been asked not to coruncnt on it, I will say that it v;as a momentary 
breakdown of security at one specific location and th^t Ruby did not gain 
entrance by collusion either with a newsman or a policeman, both of which 
possibilities have been frequently voiced. 

' There is no question that the presence of a large number of news 
media representatives in the basement made it possible for Kuby to enter 
and murder Oswald. Again, tliis is not an attempt on ray part to place 
responsibility on the shoulders of the press. The newsmen were in the 
basement because we permitted them to be thcre._^

Union Fidelity Building, Room 1104, 1511 Bryan Street, at which 
time he advised he is self-employed as a .Certified Public 
Accountant and has resided in the Dallas area for the past 
59 years o 

He stated he first met JACK RUBY around 1952 and has 
knoTiiTn hira on a casual basis for at least 10 years. KLEIKIIAN 
was unable to recall the. exact circumstances surrounding their 
acquaintance, but stated he has been in the Dallas area for 
a long time and is acquainted with moat of the busitessmen 
in this area. He related his association with RUBY was 
more or less a business acqiwlntance rather than a social 
acquaintance and explained this by saying that he had never 
been \dLth RUBY on any social excursions; however, has done 
a certain amount of accounting for RUBY in connection 
with ruby's night clubs. Carousel and Vegas Clubs, both 
of wtibh he described as being local night spots in Dallas. 

KLEINMAN stated RUBY first contacted him back in 
1956 and requested some accounting work in connection with 
the Carousel Club. He could recall doing very little accounting 
work for RUBY at that particular time and related he has h^d no 
other busirsss connections with RUBY until this past year. 
It V7as sometime in October of 1962 that RUBY contacted him 
again and requested that he handle the accounts for both the 
Carousel and the Vegas Clubs. In connection with this, Mr. 
KLEINl'IAN stated he h-^s prepared and filed the tax returns 
for the Carousel Club but ha.s been unable to prepare the Vegas 
Club account to present. Ke vyent on to say tnat he had considerablei 
difficulty with the records of the Carousel Club and explained 
this by saying that RUBY m^aintained very few records and as 
a general rule, hisd carried the business on a cash basis. 

In regard to RUBY°s business » KLEINMAN advised all 
the records* pertaining to both the' Carousel and Vegas Clubs 
are presently in the hands of Mr. BOB KLEIN of the Internal 
Revenue Service, located in Dallas, Texas. He added that the

records should be returned within a v;eek or so and if desired, 
he would make them available to the FBI at this time. He 
stated the records revealed all employees of both the Carousel 
and Vegas Clubs, but that the records containing these names 
were also turned over to the Internal Revenue Service, Dallas. 

In regard to RUBY's background, Mr. KLEINMAN stated 
his acquaintance was a casual one and knev; of nothing specific 
concerning RUBY's political convictions, his personal character 
or personal desires. He added that the only individual who 
ppeared to be close to RUBY v;as an individual by the name of 
RALPH PAUL, who, according to RUBY, was the President of the 
Vegas Club. He further stated that JACK RUBY had told him that 
EARL RUBY was the Vice-President and JACK RUBY was the 
Secretary-Treasurer of the Vegas Club. 

Mr. KLEINMAN further added that JACK RUBY appeared 
to be an emotional person but explained that RUBY v/as always 
courteous in connection with their business dealings. He could 
recall one specific incident concerning the emotional and sensi- 
tivity of RUBY which occurred sometime, he believed, on November 
23, 1963. Sometime that day, exact time he could not recall, 
Mr. KLEINMAN saw RUBY for a very brief time in the Sols Turf 
Bar and could recall RUBY having some report or a pamphlet 
concerning "Impeachment of Earl Warreno" He advised he could 
not recall the specific conversation that took place between 
nimand RUBY, but he gained the impression that RUBY was pretty 
much aggravated concerning the pamphlet. He could not recall 
discussing the assassination of President KENNEDY with RL^Y at 
this time, but stated the conversation may have been associated 
in some way with the assassination. He was unable to relate 
any other information pertaining to this particular conversation 
that had taken place between him and RUBY on that day. 

Mr. KLEINMAN further stated he has ne\^ discussed 
any political aspects with RU'BY that he could recall and 
v/as under the impression that RUBY was not particularly con- 
cerned over the political 'views of the country. He was unable 
to furnish any information as to why RUBY hacf shot LEE HARVEY 
OSWALD on November 24, 1963.

KARVEY OSWALD prior to the assassination of President KENNEDY 
and could not recall ever hearing the name. He further 
added that to the best of his knowledge, JACK RUBY had never 
mentioned the name of OSWALD in his company.

accounting work that he has done. He stated he received 
checks from RUBY drawn on, the Vegas Club account and had received

"November 26. 1963 

"Mr. J. E. Curry 
"Chief of Police 


'On Sunday, November 24, at approximately 9:45 A.M., I 
arrived at the basement of the City Hall and reported to 
Captain Arnett. They had just completed searching the 
basement, I had no specific assignment. I was told to 
stand around ind keep my eyes open, to let no-one in 
the part of the basement where the cars come and leave 
unless they had a Press Card. 

'I noted every car that came into the basement was thoroughly 
searched by the regular officers. 

"At different times I walked up both ramps to observe the ^ 
crowds thdt were gathering, and talked to the officers 
standing at both entrances to the basement. 

"I was constantly bothered by reporters, asking questions 
and wanting information which I did not know. 

"1 was told rumors were that there were several threats 
going around, and that was the reason for all the security. 

"Prior to Oswald's arrival from the Jail Of lice \.e v-erc told 
to keep the Press against the railing and to keep one side 
clear, which we did. In a few minutes Oswald cams out of 
the door and had just rounded the corner. I was looking at 
his face, and in just a fraction of a second later I saw a 
blur, ray thoughts were that some reporter was attacking him 
(Oswald). 1 then heard a muffled shot, and heard someone 
say 'get the Doctor." I saw Captain Arnett grappling in 
the crowd and ran to his aid, but saw he was O.K. Then, 
heard someone holler not to let anyone out, so I ran halfway 
up the North ramp and stood there. No-one passed. 

"I did not know the subject Ruby and had never seen him to 
the best of my knowledge.

OSY/ALD, he jerked on OSTfALD's handcuff at approximately 
the exact time of the shot and pushed RUBY back with his

GRAVES at the same time grabbed RUBY's .hand and took

L'C?.r 1*^16 nd: ; 

Thanlc you for your prompt reply. Enclosed are your uard and receipt, along I 

v/ith our thanks and welcome. 

Your interest in helping to form an FPCC Chapter in '^'"'ew Orleans is grateiflully 
raceived, I shall try to give you some basic information now -so that you may have 
a better picture of what this entails. 

For one thing, I- an enclosing a copy of our Constitution and By-LaiTs for all 
Chapters and Student Councils, You will note that there is considerable autonomy 
for an organization our size. Vie try and let all Chapters operate according to the 
local requirements. Naturally, there a minimul regulations which must be met, 

/ All Chapters can receive literature in bulk at a discounted rate and resell at 
the retail price and use the proceeds for further Chapter activities,'^ Credit is 
extended and payment is not required vrith the order. We do expect payment within a , 

reasonable period so that we may continue our end of the operation. 

It w.Tuld be hard to concieve of a chapter vath as few members as seem to exist 
in the \'ew Orleans area, I have just gone through our files and find that Lousiana 
seems somewhat restricted for Fair Play activities. However, with vj-hat is there 
perhaps you could build a larger group if a fe\T people would undertake the disciplined 
rfisponsibility-of concrete organizational work, 

Vfe certainly are not at all adverse to a very small Chapter but certainly would 
expect that thero would be at least twice the amount needed to conduct a le^al executive 
board for the Chapter, Should this be reasonable, we could readily issue a charter for 

I "" V.T. Lee Exhibit 3 *" 

Lee (Vincent T.) Exhibit No. 3

a "ew -'rlRans Chapter of FPCG. In fact, we vfould be very, very pleased to see this 
take place and -would like to do everything possible to assist in bringing it about. 
7fe feel that the south-east is a very difficult area to work because of our lack of 
contacts. Our only southeastern Chapter right now is that in Tar.ipa, Florida which 
I originally organized before coming up to work in the National Office, 

I for one am convinced of the possibility of such an enterprise but know from 
experience that it is quite a- problem and requires some sacrifice on the j>art of 
those involved. 

You must realize that you will come under tremendous pressures with any attempt 
to do FPCG work in that area and that you vdll not be able to operate in the manner 
which is cinventional here in the north-east. Even most of our big city Chapters have 
been forced to abandon the idea of operating an office in public. The national office 
here in New York is the only one in the country' today and the' Hew York City Chapter 
uses our office too so it is the only Chapter with an office. Most Chapters have dis- 
covered that it is easier to operate semi-private ly out of a home and maintain a P.O. 
Box for all mailings and public notices. ^(A P.O. Box is a must for any Chapter in the 
organization to guarnatee the continued contact with the national even if an individiaial 
should move or drop out.)) '7e do have a serious and often violent opposition and this 
proceedure helps prevent many unnecessary incidents which frighten av/ay prospective 
supporters. I definitely would not recommend an office, at least not one that will 
be easily identifyable to the lunatic fringe in your community. Certainly, I would not 
recommend that you engage in one at the very beginning but wait and see how you can 
operate in the community through several public experiences, 

Vie vdJLl be able to give you some assistence from here, but not much. It is up 
to the local Chapters t o_handle thoir ctto affairs. You^shaou ld have at least access 

"" V.T. Lee Exhibit 3 ' -,^-~ 

Lee (Vincent T.) Exhibit No. 3 — Continued 




799 BROADWAY NEW YORK 3. N. Y. ORegon 4.829> 

to a mimeo machine to prepare public material if you are going to operate, A 
fc^ood typeivritiE is essential and above all pecple that will carry out the million 
and one mechanical functions necessary to make it a going operation, 

V Note: when you contact people by mail we recommend that only first class be 
used and that no full name go on the return address on the outside of the envelope, J • 
You will notice how we work our's here on the national level. Many people will re- 
spond better with this type of protection against nutty neighbors and over curious 
postmen* These may sound like small things to you, but I can assure you that we havei 
gone through thi a thousand and more time the length and breadth of the country and 
have learned a great deal over the last three years through some bitter experience. 

Naturally, I would like to communicate with you a great deal more concerning 
yourself so that we can get to know you and possibly be of some assistence to you 
as we get more information, 

17e hope to hear from you very soon in this regard and are looking forward to 
a good ^TO^king relationship for the future. Please fell free to discuss this matter 
quite thoroughly ivith me.

L. J. LEWIS, 7515 Hunia, Pleasant Grove, Texas, advised 
he- is presently self-eraoloyed as a wholesale car dealer. LEWIS 
advised.. that, on the afternoon of KoveiT.bex'..2 2, 1353, he was on 
the used car lot of Johnny Reynolds Used Cars together with 
KA7;CLD RUSSELL and PAT PATTERSON, during which time they heard 
approxir.ately three or four gun shots coming from .the..,vi.cln.ity 
of Tenth. a:~id ..Patt on Avenue, Dallas, Texas. Approximately one 
minute later he observed a white male, approximately thirty j/ears 
of a'^e, running -south on Patton Avenue, carrying either'-^^'ir "'automatic 
pis'col or a revolver in his hands, and while running was either 
attempting to reload same or conceal the weapon in his belt line. 

Upon' reaching. the. intersection of Patton Avenue and 
Jefferson Street, Dallas, Texas, the individual then proceeded 
west on Jefferson, at which- time LEWIS advised he went into the 
office of Johnny Reynolds Used Cars and called the Dallas Police 
Department to advise them of the fact that the shooting had just 
occurred just north of the intersection of Jefferson and Patton 
Avanue . 

to folic-.-.- -jhe .ind::-vidual, and to the best of his knowledge, HAROLD 
RUSSE'' ' had gone in the direction of Tenth and Patton Avenue to 
c£-.- -.hat had happened. LEV7IS advised he later was informed 
thw .i.s uniform 'police officer had been shot at the inter- 
section, of ?. tton and Tenth Street in Dallas, and that in all 
probability the individual they had seen- running south, on. Patton 
.'.venue with a gun in his possession was the individual responsible 
for same . 

LEWIS was shown a photograph of LEE HARVEY OSWALD, New 
Orleans PD No. 112723, dated August *3 , 1963, at which time 
Kr» LEWIS advised due to the distance from which he observed the 
individual he would hesitate to state whether the individual was 
identical with OSWALD.

corridor to the jail office intersect. 

He estimated that there were betc7een sixty and 
seventy-five Dallas. Police Officers in the basement of 
City Hall and that there t'7ere approximately forty to fifty 
nexv7spaper people, television people and radio people present. 

Captain JONES had stated that only police officers 
and authorized people from the press were to be allowed in 
the basement. Every one of the police officers v7ho were 
not personally Icnoim were Co identify themselves and the 
people from the newspapers , radio and televieion were to 
identify themselves with their press cards. Some of these 
individuals vyore their press cards attached to their lapels 
and others did so by holding them out in their hands. He, 
LGWERY , had no personal knov/ledge of any unauthorized persons 
being allowed in the basement. 

Some three to five minutes before the shooting 
of OSUi'iD, he observed a television Ccimera crew pushing a 
large television caraera, mounted on a tripod and dolly, frca 
TV Station IJPAB, Channel 5, Fort Worth, ccma dc^rTn the corri- 
dor past the door to the jail office and, V7hen diey saw the 
steep ramp and the armored car parked at the exit, one of 
the crew said they couldn't get up that X'yay. They then 
pushed the camera through a crowd of nev7smen on the east 
side of the ramp area and he did not see exactly vjhere they 
V7ent to in the basement;, but presumed it vjas somewhere in 
the garage parking area. ' He did not see these individuals 
identify themselves in any v.iay ^ and one of the men V7a3 
pushing on the leg of the tripod on the left side and had 
his head very low and in such a position that he could not 
see his face; the man on the right side was also pushing 
with his head down, and a t^ixrd individual was somewhere 
behind the camera with his/<^own bet^^/een his arms. He did 
not pay too much attention to this camera crew, but is 
under the impression there were three individuals pushing 
the camera. 

Also shortly before the shooting, a marlosd police- 
car left the basement and v/ent up the wrong direction on 
the Main Street ranp. This police car had its red light j\ 



LowEBY Exhibit No. 5083 — Continued 


DL 44-1639 

flashing and thera were tnjo or three officers in the car. 
He did not renesber or could not say positively who these 
officers vjere. He could not remeru:ber the sequence of 
events at this point, in that he could not recall whether 
he sav7 the television caraera before the police car left or 
vice versa. In any event, shortly afterx-zards scjiecne 
shouted, "Here he comes," and LOIJERY loolced tcuards the 
jail office door and sacj Lieutenant SlIAIN emerge. An 
iiiGtant later, Captain FI^ITZ carie cut and he was follcjed 
by Detective J. R. LEAVELLE with 031JALD. LEAVELLE was 
handcuffed by his left arm to OSlJALD's right arm. These 
handcuffs were designed vjith three cuffs, ti;o of the cuffs 
were on OSWALD'S vjrist and one was on l.ZJ^VZL'L'E'' q xrrist. 
Another plain-clothes officer was holding OSU \LD by the 
left ara. He did not remeaber who this officer was. As 
CSVJALD came through the jail office door, the whole line 
of navsz::'^n and television people seeraed to cone f onward a 
stet). There were numerous flash bulbs popping and newsnen 
yelling at OSVIALD. Juot as OSU/iD end LE>.V»^LLE v;ere passing 
by LOUErvY, al3©Bt a foot or so away, a man lunged f orchard 
with a gun in his right hand, stuck the gun m OSWALD'S chest, 
and fired from a distance of about tijelve inches. Re saw 
the flash of fire from the pistol. The nan only took one 
step and thrust the gun forvjard at the same time and fired 
the shot, practically in one motion. He V7ent dov;n before 
he could fire another with several others on top of him. 
I-:e did not laiow vi^ho this individual was until his Iinti fell 
off in the melee and then saw it was JACK RUBY , whom he has 
loiovTn for several years. RUBY v-as disarmed and carried 
inside tiie jail office, RUBY caitie from the group of newsnien 
diagonally across from LOWERY, from the northeast. As the 
man lunged toward GSU/iLD, he yelled something X-;ith the 
expletive, "Son-of-»a-Bitch' in it. It could have been, 
"You dirty Son-of°a-Bitch." 

After the shooting, there was considerable con- 
fusion and he immediate y thought of the television crew 
who had gone through a fev» moments before and he went over 
in the area where he had la&t seen them. Detective CUTCHSEAU 

\^v ^^^^

apparently bad the sa^ie t'ac-oght, because CU'i.'CHSI-L.U also 
VJent over where they had been and they tallciea to the 
television crew, and both of thei-^i stated there were only 
ti-70 men pushing the carnera. He said he, LOUKRY , could 
not be positive there v;ere three, but thought there were 
three and CUTCESHAW also thought there v;ere three men. 
One of the tv^/o television crew said that they didn't 
Icncu anything about a third man. Lieutenant SUAIN vjas 
nearby and LOIJERY told him about the television crew and 
SUAIN instructed him to hold them and get r.iore details. 
The tV70 men with the cssiera, which LOWERY described as* 
a long-range camera, then wanted to go to the third floor 
and LG'JERY went v;ith them and stayed with them for about 
an hour and a half. He reported this to Lieutenant BAICER 
and was instructed to get the names, addresses and phone 
nu?abers of these t\;o television cre^Tmen, which he did, 
and gave this to Lieutenant BAKER subsequently. He recalled 
tnat one of these television people \j&3 JOHN ALEXAKDER, who 
was v/earing a topcoat, and the other was a thin 
boy, was vjearing a light shirt. He thought it strange 
that the television crevy said there v/ere only ti-70 when both 
ha and CUTCHSi-IAW v^ere under the impression that three men 
were pushing the camera, and he thought it possible that '■"■ 
either RUBY or seme other person could have gotten into *'• 
the area with this dasa. He said he did not pay enough 
attention to the three to tJefinitely state that one of'^thea 
was RUBY. 

Detective LOWtiRY further stated that prior to 
the Lhooting there were three plain, urjaarked police cars 
l2.ned up just off the ramp leading to Commerce Street behind 
tne armored truck. One car had made the turn from the 
garage up^ the south ramp and the nose of the second car was 
just on the ramp and the third c£ll?; was just behind the 
second car. AIL of these cars had drivers. lie remembers 
tnat all three of the drivers were detectives from the 
Kcmicide Bureau and stated that, if his memory served him 
right, the driver of the first was Detective BECK and the 
second driver was Detective DHO;<ITY. He did not remember 
the driver of the third car.

Detective LOUERY has >>nov7n JACK RUBY for seven 
or eight years , having met hiia in connection irL'ch his police 
v7ork. LOWERY has been assigned to the Juvenile Bureau for 
&70 years and last saw RUBY about one year previously prior 
to the shooting of OSWALD. 

LOWERY has never been eraployed by RUBY in any 
capacity, either full tine or part time, and did not kncr.? 
if any Dallas Police Officers had ever been employed by hira 
in :.ay capacity. He stated he did not believe any had because 
of a police regulation to the effect that no Dallas Police 
Officer could be employed in any establishment that sold 
alcoholic beverages. 

Re did not see RUBY tallcLng to anyone and did 
not see or talk to RUBY at any time between November 22 and 
24, 1963. Ee said he had absolutely no information as to 
any association or relationship between RUBY and OSWALD.

McCuLLOUGH Exhibit No. 1 





JOHN Q. MC CULLOUGH, Philadelphia Bulletin newspaper 
reporter, home address 6345 Woodbine Street, Philadelphia, Pa., 
advised he was in Dallas, Texas, covering,. the story of the 
assassination of the President, JOHN P. KENNEDY, from 7:15 p.m., 
Friday, November 22, I963, until approximately 7 p.m., Wednesday, 
November 27, I963. He said that at all times he was at the 
Dallas Municipal Building where Dallas, Texas, Police Depart- 
ment is located and in the vicinity of the rooms used by the 
police department, that he had to use his press card for 
Identification . 

He said that on November 24, I963, he went to Dallas, 
Texap, Police Department headquarters located on the third 
floo. of the Municipal Building and arrived there around ten 
o'clock. He had to show his credentials to gain entrance. 

Chief of Police CURRY, Dallas, Texas, Police Depart- 
ment, was talking to a number of reporters regarding the 
transfer of LEE HARVEY OSWALD from the police department to 
county authorities. Among the things CURRY mentioned, was 
that the police department, during Friday night and early 
Satxirday morning, had received several anonymous telephone 
calls threatening action against OSWALD for having allegedly 
shot the President. One caller said that they did not want 
to hurt any police officers, but they would get the S©Q.B. 

MC CULLOUGH went to the basement where OSWALD would 
be leaving the building about 10:30 a.m. He again had to show 
his credentials when he got off of the elevator. From the 
elevator he went to the basement garage area, where a vehicle 
would take OSWALD to the county authorities. He again had to

Show his cx^dentials when he came Into this Immediate area. 
He also said he noticed the police checking police cars In 
this underbround parking area, to see that no one was In the 
automobiles, and that they were also taking shotguns out of 
the patrol cars, which are normally kept In them. 

An xmknown Dallas, Texas, Police Department sergeant 
was heaz»d by MC CULLOUQH to say these guns had been placed In 
the police department property room. MC. CULLOUQH estimated 
that there were probably fifty police officers In uniform In 
the basement area, some armed with 12 -gauge shotguns. 

He said that a crowd of approximately 100 people were 
gathered outside the entrance to the basement, where the armored 
tinick would leave the building, when It transported OSWALD away. 
Shortly after HC CULLOUQH got to the basement, these onlookers 
were made to go to the other side of the street by the police. 
The crowd was a well-ordered group, according to MC CULLOUQH, 

An unknown police officer told MC CULLOUQH that the 
armored truck that was being used to transport OSWALD was to 
keep OSWALD from being shot with a high-powered rifle which 
could have been used to better advantage If he were being 
transported In a police sedan or van. MC CULLOUQH said the 
clearance for the truck was Insufficient to allow it to get 
completely Into the building, because of heating ducts pro- 
truding from the celling. MC CULLOUQH said he and several 
other reporters attempted to walk over to the truck to examine 
the Inside but were prevented from doing so by a police officer. 

A captain of the Dallas, Texas, police department, 
whose name MC CULLOUQH did not know, briefed the press on the 
procedure that wouJLd- be followed at the time OSWALD was being 
taken throxigh the basement to the armored truck. They were 
toldi'they could stand along the line of the passageway which 
OSWALD would take going from the "booking room" and across the 


c «??r

PH 44-767 

basement to the truck. When notice was given that OSWALD was 
in the basement, the press waa not to follow after him, trying 
to question him or step out in the way of the group. OSWALD 
was to be brought down from the fourth floor cellblock of the 
building on a special elevator that carries the prisoners 
between the fourth floor and the "booking room" in the base- 
ment. MC CULLOUGH estimated that it was approxlmriately fifty 
feet from this elevator to the spot where the truck wa.s 
located. He said that this briefing took place at approxi- 
mately 11 a.m. 

He said there was a police car unmarked, parked 
right behind the truck, and shortly after a green police car 
was parked behind that car. They had both come from the parking 
area in the garage. 

The area of the corridor that OSWALD was to T-^-alk 
through was well lighted as a result of the need for light 
for television cameras. At lis 20 a.m.. Captain J. W, FRITZ, 
Dallas, Texas, Police Department, came from the booking room 
a few feet ahead of OSWALD and the two officers guarding him, 
and surveyed the area as he walked. MC CtJLLOUGH said at tliat 
time he was standing on a railing approximately fifteen fe^t 
away from the passageway where OSWALD would pa 3^. At the time 
OSWALD came out of the booking rc-jffl on his wa^/ to the arKir,T=ed 
truck, the, area from which RUBY" -.ame was cori^ested with tele- 
vision cameras, reporters and ptlioe. However, MC CITLLOUGH 
noted the movement of an individual, who later was identified 
as JACK RUBjT^ moving toward OSWALD as he vra],ked dovm the 
passageway between reporters and police officers. MC CTJLLOIJC-H 
estimated tl-^at by the time RL^BT got to OSWALD, he only had to 
go five to ten feet to put the gim in OSWALD'S stomach. MC 
CULLOUGH did not see miBI^s right hand until he shoved it into 
OSWALD'S stomach. At no time did MC CULLOUGH see RUBZ's face. 

MC CULLOUGH said that immediately after the shooting. 


McCuLLOUGH Exhibit No. 2 — Continued 


PH 44-767 


he heard someone say JACK, you ri— o~ a b . Shortly after 

the shooting. Detective COMBiAST told MC CULLOUGH that It was 
he who said this when he recogrr.i^ed liE&'^T, 

Later that evening, MC CULI.OUGH went hack to his 
hotel and saw pictures of RUBY on television. Ke then recalled 
that on Friday night, Ncverober 22, I963, when he had first got 
to Dallas, Texas, he was at the third floor of the Municipal 
Building outside of the police headquarters. At some time 
around midnight, he stood on a cigarette ash stand to get a 
better view of the area. As he wa.s getting down from the 
stand, he bumped a roan rather abruptly with his elbow. Ke 
turned to apologize to the man and noted that this ma.n was 
carrying a blue and white box with "Alliaaimarl-' stamped on it.' 
This box was about eight inches by five inches and approxi- 
mately three inches deep. After MC CDI-LOUGH had seen RUlTT's 
picture on .television, he was certain that this was the 
individual he had bumped on Friday. He said this individ^Jial 
was wearing at that tim^e a blue top coat and gray pork pie ha.t 
which was wool, rather than felt. This was a different hat 
than RUBY had at the time he shot OSWALD. 

Approximately one h«ur latPi-p that night, whi<^h >^-%n 
proba' ly early Saturday morning, N:ivember 23, I963, the TXalla-'^?, 
Texas, police department had a preE?3 conference at whir-h OSWALD 
was allowed to be photographed and pom.e questions asked by the 
press. The conference was held in the "line-up ro:m" of the 
Dallas, Texas, police department and la^^ted approximately ten 
to fifteen minutes. KG CHLI^OlvaH estimated that there wer- at 
least 100 pe^le present. He did net see RSJBT then, but aftf-r 
WJWf shot OSWALD, Justice of the Feace DAVID L. JOflNSTON. wYi^^ 
handled OSWALD'S arraignment, told MC CIILLOUllH ^f%€^ OSWALD'S 
death, that immediately after this conference, RUFY came ;ip t's 
JOiiNSTON, introduced himself and gave JOItMSTON a busj.ness .--ard 
advertising the "Carousel Club" night spot which RTJTBY ownel. 
MC CULLOTOH said JOHNSTON told him that the dress of KUBI was .

the ssune as MC CTJLLOIKJH had noted approximately an hour earlier. 

MC CUIaLOUGH said that on Sunday, November 24, I963, 
following the shooting of OSWALD, several reporters, whose 
Identities -hJa:* did not know, mentioned that on P'riday night and 
early Saturday morning, RUBY had passed out these same busi- 
ness cards with advertising on thera concerning the "Carousel" 
night club. They were gray cards with red printing. The 
reporters had gotten the cards from RUEY in the Municipal 
Building around the police department, 

MC CULLOUGH, who said he had traveled on campaign 
trips with former President KENNEDY and also on presidential 
trips with fonner president EISENHOVfER, said that in his 
opinion the security maintained by the Dallas, Texas, police 
department during the weekend of the Pi'esident's assassination 
was good, considering the tremendous number of press and tele- 
vision people which were there, and also the great amount of 
coverage given the story through radio and television. He said 
he recalls of no instance of any unauthorized individual being 
around the police department, with the exception of Friday night 
when he accidentally bumped into JACK RUBY. 


MC CULLOUGH said he had no information that anyone 

had conspired with RUBY to kill OSWALD, or that there had bean 

any indication that any police officer had wilfu.lly allowed 

the shooting of OSWALD. 

MC CULLOUGH also advised that he had no infoi'mation 
regarding any relationship between RUBY and OSWALD prior to 
the time of the killing of OSWALD.

was OSWALD with Detective LEAVELLE handcuffed to OSWALD'S 
right hand, McMILLON did not recall the name of the detective 
on OSWALD'S left. Another detective, whose name he couldnot 
recall followed OSWALD. Just as OSWALD and the detectives 
passed McMILLON, he turned to his left to follow this group 
knd almost instantaneously saw a man lunge out of the crowd 
about three feet in front of OSWALD and to OSWALD'S left. 
This man appeared to take one step and he was observed to have 
a gun in has right hand. This man was in a crouched position 
and seemed to bring the gun up from below hip level and take 
a step and move in on OSWALD all in one motion. This man 
hollered at OSWALD, "You rat S— of B— -, you shot the President/ 
and at the same time fired one shot. McMILLON stated he 
immediately reached for the gunman's right forearm and ^bout 
the same time several other officers reached the gunman and 
all went down onto the floor. There was a struggle on the 
floor to subdue this man and one of the officers took the 
gun from the man. This man was hollering during the 
struggle, "I hope I killed the S— of B-— . I hope I 
killed the S— of B— ." McMLLLON stated that he and the 
other officers who had subdued this man took him into the 
jail office. En route the man hollered, "Don't you know 
."^ho I am? I'm JACK RUBY J' McMILLON stated he still had 
bhis man by the right forearm all the v/ay into the jail 
Dffice, There they laid him face down on the floor and 
tiandcuffed him behind his back, using McMILLON's handcuffs. 
\IcMILLON recalled that detectives ARCHER and R. C. V/AGNER, 
and other detectives whose names he does not recall were handling 
.^UBY in the jail office. Ka stated they got RUBY on his feet 
bo take him to the jail el&vator and at this time he noticed 
bhat OSWALD was also laying on his back in the jail office on 
bhe floor with other officers around OSWALD, They took RUBY 
bo the jail elevator and to the fifth floor. McMILLON recalled 
bhat detectives CLARDY, ARCHER, and Captain KING and possibly 
Dthers, were in the elevator that took RUBY to the fifth 
rioor. On the fi^th floor RUBY was strioped and searched and,?, ,f? 
Left dressed only in his shorts. About this time, Mr. SORREL'' t 
Df the Secret Service office came to the fifth floor to talk W' 
tio RUBYo RUBY was talking freely and said that he had read 
Ln the papers ttet JACKIE KENNEDY might have to come to Texas 
;o testify and that OSWALD did not deserve a trial for what 
le had done and that he, RUBY, thought he would save the 
-axpayers time, trouble, and money. RUBY said that he was

not trying to be a hero and that what he did he did on his 
own as a spur of the raoraent thing. RUBY said this, meaning 
his shooting of OSV/ALD, could not h-ave been more perfect in 
timing because Just at the time he arrived in the police 
department basement they were bringing OSWALD out of the 
jail door. SORREL^S.V; asked RUBY if he had done this on his 
own and RUBY again stated that no one else was in on the deal 
and that it was a spur of the moment action. 

Those present while SORRELS was interview ingi-,' RUBY 
were Detectives McMILLON, CLARDY;, ARCHER, and possibly some 
of the Jail personnel whose names he did not recall. RUBY 
was also asked how he got into the basement to which he 
replied that he had been to the Western Union Office, had walked 
down IVIain Street to the down ramp in the police department and 
proceeded dovm the east side of this ramp. He, RUBY, entered 
this ramp at the time a police car was coming out onto the 
street. This police car was driven by Lt, PIERCE. While 
going down the ramp an officer, according to RUBY, ha2ilered 
at him and said something to the effect, "Hold it a minute," 
or "where are you going there," but RUBY said he did not 
slow down, ducked his head, and had his hat pulled down and 
walked on, RUBY said he knew he could act like a reporter. 
RUBY continued that Just as he got to the bottom of the ramp 
the police were bringing OSWALD out and he, RUBY, Jumped 
out of the crowd and shot OSWALD. McMILLON continued that 
RUBY also said he was surprised that he, RUBY, only got 
one shot off and that he thought he could get at least 
three shots off. RUBY said the police moved faster than he 
figured . 

McMILLON stated that RUBY was asked how he knew 
OSWALD and had shot OSWALD and not a police officer. RUBY 
replied that he had been to a press conference ^on Friday 
night in the police station show-up room and saw OSWALD 
there. McMILLON stated that he does not recall that RUBY 
was asked how he gained admission to this conference, but 
continued that RUBY said that during this conference District 
Attorney WADE was being interviewed and made several references 
to the Pfeir Play for Cuba and the Free Cuba groups and indicated 
that they were one and the same group but RUBY claimed that he 
corrected WADE, telling him (WADE), that these groups were not 
the same and that they were opposing and conflicting organi- 
zations. McMILLON stated that RUBY was not questioned as to 
how he corrected District Attorney WADE or he, RUBY, had 
knowledge of these organizations.

DL 44-1639 

Sometime during tha lxit^-t'C0:^atl<m of RUBY, SORREL'S::^ 
departed and Agent Ki^L fro.a th^s FBI arrived „ McMILLON stated 
that he vras unable to identify the officers present during any 
given period while RUBY vjas boins interviewed but stated 
that all statements ho has attributed as being made by RUBY 
were made in his (McMILLON' s) presence 

McMILLON continued that because he^ CLARDY and 
ARCKSR we^r® assigned to the Auto Theft Bureau and knex^ that 
ariothar police bureau would handle RlJliYs, they did not attempt 
to interrogate RUBY but stood by to assist in handling RUBY 
while he was being interrogated by SORREL-LS and HALL. McMILLON 
itated that Detectives from the Homicide Bureau relieved the 
aforementioned detectives and himself about 3»30 p.m. 

McMILLON stated tliat he has known RUBY approximately 
aix years and that he first met RUBY at RUBY'S Vegas Club 
that was located on his police beato D-uring this six year 
period he has seen RUBY at other clubs and at other times 
while on police work. McMILLON i:as never vjorked for, RUBY in 
any capacity and knows of no police officer who has itorked 
for RUBY. McMILLON continued that he has heard that police 
officers have been alleged to vjork for RUBY but that a police 
department order prohibits police officers from working on their 
off hours at any establishments vjhich sell liquor. McMILLON 
said that possibly people thought that police officers worked 
at these establishments because they may have seen special 
officers in these places. He explained that the Special 
Services Division - Vice Squad, Dallas Police Department, has 
employees known as Special Officers v^ho are assigned to work 
night clubs, taverns, and other such establishments. These 
employees are part time city employees but are not part of 
the Dallas Police Department and they are regulated by the Special 
Services Division. These Special Officers wear a uniform similar 
to the Dallas Police Department unifoi'm with the exception of 
shoulder patches, insignias, and badges. These Special Officers 
are paid by the City of Dallas and he is of the opinion that the 
city is reimbursed by the establish^nents where the Special Officers 
are assigned. 

McMILLON continued that he knew of no overall security 
measures in effect on November 24, 1963, and handled his assignment 
as directed by Lt. SMART and Captain JONES. He did observe that 
uniformed officers were in the basement v^hen he, McMILLON, and 
other detectives went to the basement and that these uniformed 
officers were checking people there for proper identification.

BILLY JOE MAXEY,- Sergeant, Police Department, Dallas, Texas, 
was interviewed at his rer,idance at 8912 Fr.jeport Drive, Dallas, ho-vie _ 
telephone DA 7-8743. Ke was advised at the outset that he did not 
have to furnish a statement, that any statement he did furnxsh could 
possibly be used against him in court, and of his right to an attorney. 
He furnished the following information: 

He is presently assigned to the Patrol Division of the 
Dallas Police Department and works out of the Northeast Substation at 
8 916 Adlora Lane. He was on duty from 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM on 
November 24, 195 3. -He was aware that LEE HARVEY OSWALD was to be 
transported from the Dallas City Jail to the County Jail on the 
morning of that day. It is his daily routine to visit the Central 
Police Headouarters at least once during the day, and on the morning _ 
of November *24, 1963, he left the Northeast Substation for the ostensibl 
•purpose of delivering some overtime cards to the Central Headquarters. 
He had not received an assignment to do this. ;>, 

He arrived at the Cenxral Police Headquarters in Dallas at ^k 
'about 11:00 AM driving an unmarked patrol car. He drove into the \ 
basement parking lot from the Main Street entrance and at that time _ ,^^ 
observed members of xhe Patrol Division being briefed on their trafric^ 
assignments as regards the transfer of the prisoner OSWALD. Ke was y_ 
wearing his uniform at the time," -> C, 

He parked at the north end of the basement and walked over .p^ 
to a group of officers that he recognized, V7hich included Sgt, J. A..^' ^ 
PUTNAM, Officer P. T. DEAN and Captain TALBERT. When the briefing V ^^ 
was concluded, he told Sgt. PUTNAM that he would help m any way ^e -^v, 
could and was told that everything was in good shape but that he ^ 
could wait for a while with PUTNAM and DEAN. He had no definite ^ 
advance knowledge as to where they were taking the prisoner Dut x" 
assumed it was to the County Jail. He waited for a few moments and vO;^ 
saw a number of police officers near the jail entrance to the parking j 
lot and also approximately thirty-five to forty individuals who he \^' 
assumed were newspaper reporters or radio and TV men. At that time a 
he was standing in the northeast section of the garage. -^ 

A few moments after that, Lieut. PIERCE entered the garage, .. 
driving a' black detective car, and PUTNAM waved to him and said, «i

"Come with us". He walked up to PIERCE and asked if he could assist 
and was told he should go with them as they v;ere going to escort the 
armored car. VJith thr-t he got in the back seat of the car driven by 
PIERCE and seated himself on the left-hand side of the vehicle. The 
vehicle then started to leave the garage by the north entrance leading 
jinto Main Street, but the area was full of reporters and it became 
l^ecessary for PUTNAM to get out of the car. PUTNAM, v;ith the assistance 
bf some Dallas reserve police officers, whose identity he did not know, 
noved the people out of the v;ay and the vehicle was then driven up the 
ramp to Main Street. During this time he saw no other vehicles in, or 
Leave, the basement garage. 

After entering Main Street, the vehicle made a left-hand turn, 
■jent down Main to Harwood, went down Harv;ood to Commerce, and after 
Turning left on Commerce, took a posit:}.on in front of the armored 'car 
vhich was parked in the ramp at that location, leading from the basement. 
^ few moments after the car had been positioned, he and the other 
officers observed police officers apparently making an effort to seal 
•:he exits of the police headquarters and City Hall building. He in 
)articular noticed that there were reserve officers keeping people from 
.eaving the new City Hall building. They then heard a broadcast over 
:he police radio in their car requesting an ambulance be brought to the 
;ity Hall basement. They then moved their car out of the ramp, and the 
irmored car cleared out of the Commerce Street ramp, and a few moments 
,ater an ambulance arrived and entered the basement. He and the other 
)fficers in the car immediately proceeded to' Parkland Hospital and set 
.D secuirity arrangements there where they stayed until it was learned 
hat OSWALD had died. 

At no time did he see JACK RUBY during his visit to the 
;entral Police Headquarters on November 24, 1963. He recalled reading 
'.n the newspaper and hearing accounts of the incident indicating that 
,IUBY had slipped into the basement from the Main Street ramp. If this 
/ere true it must have happened after he and the other officers had 
iriven out of the basement because they saw no one entering the basem.ent 

rem the Main Street ramp while they were driving up it, and it would 
nave been physically impossible for anybody to walk by the car because 
-if the narrowness of the ramp. He recalled as they were leaving the 
; iain Street ramp, Officer R. E. VAUGHN was standing guard at the exit 
:0 his right. He also recalled VAUGHN had made sure of his identity 
^ isually as he drove down the Main Street ramp when he first arrived 

t the Central Police Headquarters, 

He also recalled when they left, that, in addition to- VAUGHN, --(^ 
n ex-police of f icer- by the name of (FNU) DANIELS, a Negro, was standing 
o his left at the exit -of the ramp. He also believed that the head

3 - ■ 

"shine boy", also a Negro, from' tht? Central Police Headquarters, was 
standing in the vicinity of DANIELS (FNU).* 

He did not personally require anybody to identify themselves 
while in the basement, nor did he engage in conversation with anyone 
other than the aforementioned police officers. He had no personal 
knowledge of what security precautions had been taken although he 
certainly felt they were adequate from what he saw in the basement 
of the garage. 

As concerns JACK RUBY," he first met him about two years ago. 
On that occasion he was with his wife and had visited the Carousel in 
downtown Dallas for strictly social purposes. He, of course, was 
dressed in civilian clothes and, as he was leaving the night club, 
RUBY asked him if he liked the showl He told him that he enjoyed it 
and RUBY then asked him what business he was in, and he told him he 
was with the Police Department. He also took his wife to the Vegas 
Club on one occasion, but RUBY was not present at that time. He 
personally does not like to be recognized as a police officer when 
he is nightclubbing and never made it a point to seek RUBY out on the 
two or three occasions he visited his night clubs. He never had any 
occasion to visit them while he was on duty or in uniform and doubted 
very much that RUBY would know who he is at this time. 

He never worked for RUBY, nor does, he know of anyone presently 
with„ the Police Department or in any way connected with the Police 
Department who has worked for him. The last time he saw RUBY was 
approximately one month ago at one of his night clubs, and he has 
not seen him since that time. He did not see RUBY at any time on 
Noveraber 24, 1963, He has heard very little concerning RUBY prior 
to this time, knows nothing of his background, nor has he heard that 
he ever carried a gun. After the shooting of OSWALD, he talked to 

•one of the officers in the Special Services Division, whose name he 
did not know, who told him that RUBY had caused them no trouble. He 
knows nothing concerning LEE HARVEY OSWALD and had heard no mention of 
him- prior to November 22, 1963, He knows of no relationship between 

•■H^iS5E-Y and OSWALD, nor has he heard mention of any such relationship.

DAVE L. MILLER, 5610 Lewis Street, Ap.artment D, who 
received' a letter from JACK RUBY following RUBY' s arrest, 
advised as f oll'ows : 

Mr. MILLER stated that he is manager of the Enquire 
Shine and Press Shop, 1322 Commerce Street, which establishment 
is owned by his brother, ISIDORE MILLER. Mr. MILLER further 
informed that this establishment is located just two doors from 
the Carousel Club where RUBY has been operating a strip-type 
entertainment. He added that RUBY has regularly parked his 
automobile in a garage located between the Carousel and MILLER'S 
place of business. 

MILLER stated that through his employment, he has known 
RUBY for three years inasmuch as RUBY has regularly brought 
laundry and dry cleaning to this place and, as a consequence, a 
regular and continuous acquaintance has been developed. He 
also stated that on two or three occasions he has visited the 
Carousel Club as a customer but has never belonged to any of 
ruby's clubs. RUBY also has dropped in from time to time on 
his way to or from the Carousel Club to say hello and also to 
have his shoes shined by one of the shoe shine boys. 

MILLER advised that he has never discussed politics 
with RUBY and knows him only as a friendly, congenial person. 

MILLER stated that he last saw RUBY on two brief \ 
occasions, the first being about 5:30 PM on November 22, 1963, 
when RUBY stopped by for just a minute or so on his way to or I 
from the Carousel Club. At that time RUBY asked, "What do you 
think about that S.O.B, shooting the President?" referring to 
the assassination of President KENNEDY. He did not mention 
OSWALD'S name and gave no indication that he ever saw or knew 
OSWALD. He gave no indication that he was more upset over the 
assassination than the average individual. 

RUBY last appeared at MILLER' s place of business about 
5:30 PM on November 23, 196 3, when he dropped in and asked MILLER 
not to display a sign advertising the Carousel Club, explaining 
that the club was closed due to the assassination. MILLER 
explained that for som e time he has posted an advertisement for

that RUBY was walking and alone on each of the above-cited 
occasions, but he assumed that RUBY had either just parked his 
car in the adjacent garage or was going to get his car from 
the garage. 

MILLER stated that in the letter he received from" 
RUBY following his incarceration, RUBY asked him to say hello 
to SAM (HICKS) and DWAYNE (ARMSTRONG) and "the other boy", threi 
colored shoe shine boys who knew RUBY only casually and as a 
customer in their shoe shine business. The third boy*s name 
MILLER has forgotten since he is no longer employed. 

MILLER stated that he never knew LEE HARVEY OSWALD 
and never had any reason to suspect that there was a relation- 
ship or acquaintance between OSWALD and RUBY. He added that he 
has no information concerning the shooting of OSWALD by RUBY on 
of ruby's gaining entrance to the basement of the Police Depart: 
ment prior to the shooting.

the identities of Special Agents ROBERT J. UIUCISON and 
EDMOND C. HARDIN. No threats or promises were made to

Ke is employed as a detective in the Dallas Police 
apartment. Criminal Investigation Division, Juvenib 
Bureau, Police Headquarters. On November 24, 1963, he v;orked 
at 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. shift. ' 

A few minutes before the shooting of LEE KARVEY 
03UALD, on November 24, 1963, he vjas on duty in the Juvenile 
Department, Third Floor of • the Police Department. Someone 
said for all officers to go to the basement. He does not 
kncx7 who gave the order. Ke went to the basement, and upon 
arrival, stood around in the hail corridor betvjeen the

> ^vb ATv CUTCHAW, LOI-SRY, HARRISON and GOOLSBY of the Juvenile 
_^ \ '^'/Department were also on duty and all went to the basement

araa Co ha transferred to the County Jail. Detective 
CUTCKAU vjas standing on the other side of the Jail Office 
doorv/ay V7hich was on the VJest side and Detective McMILLEN 
was stationed i-.ext to MILLER. 

As OSVJALD was escorted pc-t, he and Detective 
McMILLEN started to move along the vjall of the Booking 
Office behind OSWALD and the people. The lights frcm the 
TV\ cameras v;3re very bright in the ramp area. A few seconds 
later, he saw a biur out of the corner of his eye, and at that 
instant p. the thought ran through his mind that some . . 
TV or radio man v;as running up to QSVJALD with a microphone. At 
about the same time, he heard a shot. As the shot "sounded, 
CSUALD and the escorting police officers seem to fa LI tov7ard 
the floor or^ ir.ove a little to their right. At the sarr.e time, 
several officers converged upon that spot and someone must 
have hit RUBY, since R.UBY vjas propelled, in his direction. 
MZLLSR was also moving toward the spot of the "shooting. Ke 
grabbed RJ3Y by the neck and believes scr^s other officer had a 
hold of ruby's arm and v;as trying to get a pistol av7ay from 
RUBY, which RUBY was still holding; Ke did not notice what 
type of pistol RUBY had, as he did not get a very good look 
at it. At the same time a large number of officers also converged, 
on. RUBY and RUBY V7as disarmed and taken into the jail office. The 
entire incident took place in a matter of seconds. 

When the officers were sent to the ramp area prior 
to OSWALD being brought do^ra, there were officers stationed 
on both sides of the ramp. 

Ke had never previously seen OSWALD except on TV 
after the assassination of President JOHN F. KENNEDY. Ke did 
not personally know JACK RUBY and does not believe he had ever 
seen him prior to the shooting. 

Miller (Louis D.) Exhibit No. 5013 — Continued 


DL 44-1639 

When RUBY shot OSWALD, the escorting officers and 
OSWALD were approximately three or four steps from him. However, 
the backs of OSWALD and the officers were to him. He does not 
recall exactly v^hat he v;as looking at when the shot sounded. 

Police Department regulations do not permit officers 
to x-7ork off duty in a place where alcoholic beverages 
are served. Re never worked for RUBY or in any of RUBY's 
night club. He does not know of any police officers who ever v;orked 
for RUBY. -. . • 

There were a large number of police officers in the 
basement earlier prior to the shooting, but he has no idea 
how many officers were present. He had no reason to check anyone 
in the basement since the security checks were made at 
entrances to the basement as far as he knows ,. However , he was not- 
familiar with the security measures that V7ere in effect. He 
does not know of any unauthorized persons that were permitted 
entrance to the basement or of any one permitted to enter without 
shov7ing identification. He saw no suspicious people in the 
biasement prior to the shooting. 

He has no knowledge of any relatriBhip 'between

L. D. MONTGOMERY, Homicide and Robbery Bureau of the Dallas Police 
Department, advised that he arrived on-duty at approximately 8:00 AM 
and was in the Homicide office up uptil they got ready to move 
OSVJALD down to the County Jail. He stated that Captain FRITZ, in 
charge of the Homicide Bureau, instructed him to follow Detective 
LEAVELLE and Detective GRAVES as they escorted OSWALD from the 
third floor down to the basement and out to the. car,- -which was to 
transport him to the County Jail. He advised he did not see the 
shooting inasmuch as OSVJALD and the detectives mentioned were 
directly in front of him. He stated he savT a blur there and they 
were struggling in subduing RUBY. 

u ■ 
He stated they had known RUBY for several years, casually, 
inasmuch as when he v;as in the Patrol Division he used to cover the 
district where the Vegas Club operated by RUBY is located on Oak 
Lawn Street. He advised he had not seen RUBY for at least tv;o years 
prior to the time of the shooting. He stated when they got out of 
the elevators and came out of the jail office, the officers, as v/ell 
as nev7smen, photographers and TV cameramen, were already there and 
he did not pay any attention to them and could not say whether or not 
he knew any of them in the crowd. He stated he was not present when 
these people were admitted to the basement and does not know what means 
were taken to identify them;. He knew nothing of the security measures 
taken other than what his immediate assignment was. He had no infor- 
mation concerning any relationsl^ip between RUBY ai>d OSWALD.

the various areas in the Emergency Room, At approximately 12:33 P.M. I 
answered the phone which was ringing in the Major Surgery Nurses' Station. 
Mrs. Bartlett, the telephone operator, informed me that the President had 
been shot, and was being brought to the hospital. I told her to "stop 
kidding me". She said "I am not. I have the police dispatcher on the line." 
I thanlced her, and immediately hung up the phone. 

I asked Dr. Dulaney, the Surgery Resident, to come xaco Trauma Room # 1, and 
that I wished to talk with him because I did not wish to alert everyone which 
might have caused general pandemonium in the Emergency Room. I informed Mrs. 
Standridge, and she told me that Room # 1 was set up so I proceeded into Room # 2, 
and had opened one bottle of Ringer's Lactate when I heard someone call for 

Seconds later. Governor Connally was brought into Room ^^ 2, I opened his shirt, 
and saw that he had received a gunshot wound of the chest. Mrs. Standridge was 
in the room assisting the doctor so as I walked out of the room co check on the 
President, he was wheeled into Trauma Room #1, I checked in th. room to deter- 
mine what type of injury he had sustained, and was asked by the Secret Service to 
screen all personnel at the doorway leading to the trauma rooms. In the meantime, 
I answered the phone in the Surgery Nurses ' Station,' and Dr, Baxter was on the 
line. He asked what we wanted, I told him that the President had been shot, and 
he said "Yes - what else is new?" I said: "Get down here", and he said: "I'm on 
my way," 

I stood at the doorway with a city policeman and secret service agent, and screened 
each doctor that went into the area, I offered to get Mrs. Kennedy, who was sittiii 
outside of Trauma Room # 1, a towel, and asked her if she would like to remove her 
gloves which were saturated with blood. She said: "No thank you, I'm alright". On 
one occasion she got up, and went into the room the President was in. I went in, 
and asked her if she had rather wait outside, and she said "no". One of the secret 
service men said to let her stay in the room. She came out shortly thereafter. 

Several I^ite House aides and secretaries came in, and embraced Mrs. Kennedy, and 
believe Mrs. Lyndon Johnson was among them. 

Dr, Kemp Clark arrived. The cardio-verter was carried into the room, and Dr. Jenk; 
from Anesthesia came with an anesthesia cart. 

Shortly after Dr, Clark arrived, two priests arrived, and gave the President last 
rites. Dr, Clark came out of the room, and talked briefly with Mrs, Kennedy, The» 
the priest came out, and I talked with the First Lady also, 

I was informed by Dr, Clark of the President's expiration. I asked Mrs. Standridgi 
to obtain a death certificate for Dr, Clark to complete, I asked a doctor with th« 
Presidential Staff as to arrangements he wished carried out concerning the body. 

Nelson Exhibit No. 1 


he President's doctor informed me that arrangements had been made to obtain 

casket for the body. Shortly afterwards, Mr. O'Neal of the O'Neal Ambulance 
ompany, arrived with a bronze casket. Miss Hinchliffe came out, and asked for 
ome plastic to put inside the casket. I sent Mrs. Hutton to the 2nd floor to 
btain a plastic mattress cover. I went in Trauma Room # 1 to determine that all 
as in order while Mrs, Ellis stood in the doorway, I asked David Sanders to 
ssist the nurses in preparing the President's body before placing it in the 
askcc. I Instructed the nurses and attendants to clean up the room, and mop the 

fter Mr, O'Neal, and some of the boys who work with him, (only one of whose name 
knew - Audrey Riker) placed the President in the casket, and closed it. Mrs, 
ennedy went in, and sat in a chair beside it leaning her head on the casket, 

t approximately 2:10 P.M., the President's body was taken out of the Emergency Room, 
rs, Kennedy was walking beside it. All of the secret service apents left the area, 

lortly after they left. Miss Bowron informed me that she took the President's watch 
ff so the doctor could start an intravenous, that she placed the watch in her 
3cket, and did not think of it until everyone had left. She went out front to find 
^meone, and saw Mr. Wright so she gave the watch to him, 

gave a blue coat containing a white envelope labeled "cash" found, and a card with 
16 name "Clint Hill" to one of the secret service men, 

len the presidential staff left, Mr. Price obtained coffee for us, and we went into 
J office, drank about two sips, smoked about two puffs from a cigarette. Then I 
ide ounds, and informed the registration desk that we were seeing all patients. 
:s. Wright came down shortly after that, and I reviewed with her briefly the past 

went to coffee with Mrs. Berger. Then I went to the Nursing Service Office, and 
is told that all supervisors were to attend a meeting in Miss Beck's office at 3:30 


returned to the Emergency Room, and asked all personnel on the 7-3:30 shift to re- 
)rt to my office. Mr. Geilich came in my office while I was talking to them. I 
;ked them not to discuss the past events with anyone, and if any of the nurses were 
iproached by a member of the press that they were to obtain administrative approval 
;fore saying anything. I went back upstairs to the Nursing Service Office to 
:tend the meeting. After the meeting, I returned to the Emergency Room, made rounds, 
id left at approximately 5:00 P.M. 

30 - 10:00 P,M, - I watched television at home, and got ready to return to work at 
/ :00 P,M, 

arrived at the hospital at 10:30 P.M., made rounds in the Emergency Room, reported 
' the Nursing Service Office to inform then that I was on duty. At approximately 

Nelson Exhibit No. 1 — Continued 


12:00 Midnight, Mr, Prall of the New York World Telegram, and Miss Joyce 
Eggington of. the London Observer, came up to the registration desk, and 
said they wished to speak to someone who was on duty when the President was 
brought into the Emergency Room. I told them that there was no one on duty 
at this time, and they would have to obtain any information they needed from 
the Administrator's Office. I instructed them how to get to the Administrator's 
Office. A few minutes later, Mr. Dutton brought them into the Major Surgery area 
of the Emergency Room, showed them Trauma Room #1, and introduced them to me, 
and told them who I was, and that I was on duty at the time. He asked me to talk 
to them. I asked him if I was supposed to. If so, what was I to say? He said; 
"We are telling them all of the facts." He left them with me. 

I ushered them into ray office. They told me they were writing a human interest 
story. They wanted to know what I was doing prior to the phone call stating that 
the President had been shot, and why I answered the phone. What did I say on the 
phone when informed? They wanted to know anything unusual thf.t any of the nurses 
said. I told them I could not recall anything. They asked aboau Mrs. Kennedy's 
reaction. I told them she sat very quietly, and appeared to be ia a state of deep 
grief. They asked if I offered her anything to drink. I then told them I gave her 
water, I also mentioned offering to remove her gloves, and wash her hands. To the 
best of my knowledge, this is all I can remember. Miss Beck came to my office during 
the time I was talking to them. I also mentioned that there was an English nurse on 
duty in the Emergency Room at the time. They asked me her name, but I told them that 
I was not at liberty to give it to them. They asked who they could obtain the name 
from, and I took them up to the Governor's office to talk with Mr. Read. I went into 
the Nursing Service Office, and told Miss Beck what had taken place. Mr. Read told 
Miss Beck he had no objections to releasing the name, but it was up to the hospital. 
Miss Beck called Mrs. Wright at home at approximately 12:30 A.M., and asked her what 
she wished her to do. Apparently, Mrs. Wright instructed her to give them her name. 
Then they wanted to know what part of England she came from so I told them. 

I returned to the Emergency Room shortly afterwards. Several members of the press 
came in between 1:00 A.M. and 4:00 A.M. All were instructed how to get to the 
Governor's office. 

Nothing unusual happened out of the routine between 1:00 A.M. and 4:00 A.M. I left 
the hospital at approximately 4:30 A.M. Saturday morning, went home, and read the 
paper, and went to bed until 10:00 A.M. 

I did not return to the hospital until Sunday afternoon when I heard on the television 
that Oswald had been shot, 

I arrived in the Emergency Room after Lee Harvey Oswald had been taken to the Operatii 
Room. I made rounds in the Emergency Room, talked with Mrs. Standridge concerning 
the treatment Oswald had received in the Emergency Room. I helped screen employees ai 
visitors at the Emergency Room entrance. There were numerous reporters and photograpl: s 
at the registration desk. Mr, Geilich informed me there was going to be a press con- 
ference in Room # 102. I announced this at the triage desk, and most of the press leJ 
the area. 

Nelson Exhibit No. 1 — Continued 



[ was told shortly afterwards that Oswald had expired, and would be brought 
iown from the Operating Room through the Emergency Room to the X-Ray Department, 
[ informed Miss Lozano to pull all curtains on the examining cubicles, and to 
;lear the area. 

Jecret Service men arrived with Oswald's mother, wife, and children. I asked the 
;ecret service men if they would like to talce them in the Minor Medicine and 
lurgery area, and I would have the doctor come and talk with them. I told Dr. 
.ose. Medical Examiner, that they were there. 

,fter they had moved Oswald to X-Ray, Dr. Rose went to Minoe Medicine, and in- 
brmed the family of Oswald's death. The mother and wife came to the X-Ray Depart- 
lent to view the body, I assisted the police in draping him for the relatives to 
iew. I left the X-Ray Department, and returned to the Emergency Room, 

t approximately 4:00 P.M., I left the Emergency Room and went home.

WILLIAM J« NEWru\N, Dallas Reserve Policeman, residence 
10923 Cotillion Drive,, Texas, advised that he was called by \ 
Sgt. SULLIVAN of the Police Reserve to report to the Central Police s^ 
Station as soon as he could get there on Sunday morning, November 21, , 
1953. He stated he arrived 'there between 9;00 and 9:15 AM and was ^ 
told to report to Sgt. PUTNAM of the regular Police Department. 
Sgt. PUTNAM requested that all of the Reserves, approximately 25 7 
in number, assist them in searching all cars and areas in the 5 "> 
basement. This was at approximately 9:20 AM when they began, and at ;i§^ 
about 10:15 AM Sgt, PUTNAM told him to guard the door underneath the 
ramp coming in to the basement from the Commerce Street side where ^ ) 
the armored truck was parked. 'J / 

He advised the door ho was guarding went into the basement, 
which was the engine room. He stated that no one came in or out of ^ 
this door while he was stationed there, and he was there from C^ 
approximately 10:20 until approximately ten or fifteen minutes after j '^ 
the shooting. He advised that he did not see the shooting. He did 1 (""^ 
not know RUBY. He never knew or heard of any officers working for ^A ^ 
RUBY. He stated at the time he went into the basement there were \ 
probably fifteen or tiJenty people already there other than policemen \r 
and that they were newsmen, photographers and TV cameramen. He did ■ 
not know any of them. He stated these people were already there and 
he was not in a position to observe any others coming ih to the 
basement, so that he was unable to say what identification they had 
to show or 'if they were challenged to show any form of identification. 

He estimated that at the time of the actual shooting there 
V7ere approximately fifty people in there other than the police 

■officers. He knew of no security measures taken other than what 
his assignment was but did say that he had heard the armored car was 
going to be a decoy and that OSWALD would be taken to the County Jail 
in another car. He did not recall who told him this. He stated that 
from his position where he was assigned he was unable to see the top 
of the Main Street ramp but could see the lower part of it. He 
stated that approximately one minute before the actual shooting 
occurred he saw a man coming dovm the Main Street ramp but since he 
could just see the lower part of it, he was unable to see whether or 

■•not he was challenged or whether or not he had any identification. 
He could not see the man as there were too many people in between where 
he was stationed and where the Main Street ramp was. He did hot know 
RUBY and had not heard any talk concerning him prior to the shooting.

Mr. JOKN E. ^L4ITGRUM, Vice President and T-easurer, Southlcr.d LiTe 
Insurance Ccaipany,- Southland Center, Dallas, Texas, business telephone 
Riverside I-I32I. She has been employed there for the past sixteen 

She ^avised that she fomerly associated with JACK LEOK RU3Y, 
also knoim to her as Jack Leon Rubenstein. She furnished the followir^ 
inf oriuation regarding thsir relationship end regarding her knowledge of 

She first met RUBY in about 19^1^ when he \ra.z the ii32:ager and 
CTvner of the Silver Spxir Club in Dallas. They star-ted goin^ together 
and continued to date each other until about 195^ oi" 1957; when they 
started drifting apart. They finally stopped seeing each other altogether 
in about 19p9 or i960. She last saw JACK PUEY during the early spring 
of 1963 when he was driving down the street in Dallas. They waved to 
each other; hovrever, since she was walking and he was driving they did 
not exchange greetings or talk with each other. 

From the time she met RUBY until about August, 1952, KJL'f 
operated the Silver Sp\ar Club. In about August, 1952, RUBY sold the 
club to one MARTIM GIMPLE, who was from Chicago, Illinois, and a 
, lifelong friend of JACK RUBY. RUBY then went to Chicago snd retirmed 
to Da3JLas after about six weeks. He then bought the Silver Spur Club 
back from GIMPLE. 1-IARTIN GIMPLE is no;/ deceased. 

Sometime in I95I, JACK EJBY bought the Bob Wills Ranch Souse ' 
Club in Dallas, and he lost this club in the l£.te spring of 1952, 
inasmuch as it was too eiqpensive to operate. She does not believe that o 
RUBY had a partner in the operation of either the Silver Spur Club or 
the Bob Wills Ranch House Club. During the time RUBY operated the 
■ Silver Spur Club after she met him, he had no one associated with him 
by the name of KORI-IA MILLER. She does not know anyone by the of

Durir^ the time she vas associated vith JACK KUBY, RUBY was 
friendly with one J02 BOrJDS trho operated the Sky Club on West Commerce 
Street, Dallas, Texas. She does not "believe that RUBY and BOITOS were 
ever associates in any business. 

Sometime in 1953, RUBY bought the Club_ Vegas from ABE 
WEmSTEIN who operates the Colony Club in Dallas.;; Texas, . 

Sczietime in 1953, RUBY sold the Silver Spur Club to one 
ROCKY ROBU'SON who formerly had operated a club on Hone Street in the 
Dallas area. She does not know whether this club was inside or outside 
the Dallas City Limits. 

She met JACK RUBY's sister, EVA GRAMT, for the first time 
in about 1953 or 195^ when EVA was in Dallas on a visit. It was her 
understanding that EVA had previously lived in Dallas and had managed 
one of ruby's clubs for him. EVA came back to Dal las 
about 1959 or i960 and went to work as the manager of the Club Vegas, 
operated by JACK RUBY. 

Other members of JACK RUBY's family, whom she has met, are 
hisbrot', SAI-rJSL RUBY, who resides in Dallas; his brother, EARL RUBY, 
who lives In Detroit, Michigan; and his sister, MARION, who resides in 
Chicago, Illinois. She also met JACK'S fathe^ who is now deceased. All 
of these people ii-^Dressed her as being good people, and she knows nothing 
which would reflect vuafavorably on the character of any of these people. 

Soma time during 1952 or 1953, JACK RUBY owned for a short time 
a club knam as Hernando's Hideaway, which was located on Greenville 
Avenue, Dallas, Texas. 

In about 1959 or early in i960, Jack Ruby acquired the Carousel Clui 
in Dallas. It was about that time that she and JACK RUBY parted con^pany

lermanently. The Carousel Club had previously been lmc\m as the 
lovereign Cluh and vas operated as a private club, JACK RUSY converted 
t to a public club and changed the name to the Carousel Club. 

During the time she vent with hin, JACK RUBY told her several 
hings about himself and other things she was able to determine throxjgh 
,er conversations vith him. These things are as xollows: 

He was born at Chicago, Illinois, on March 25, 1911* His 
larents vere either foreign born or were first generation Americans, 
ne of them having been bom in Poland and the other in Russia, She 
.oes not knovr vhich one was bom in Poland and vhich one was "bom in 
Ussia. He was reared in Chicago, Illinois, and the f ciaily was of 
LOdest economic circumstances. His father was a c£:rpenter. JACK was 
.evoted to his mother, and althoiogh he cared for his father he was not 
.early as close to him as he was to his mother. JACK was inconsolable 
'or several weeks after the death of his mother. Sometime during his 
•oung manhood, JACK RUBY went to San Francisco, California, where he 
as engaged in a punch board business. He told her that in San 
'rancisco he met the only girl other than herself whom he would ever 
lonsider marrying. This girl's name was VIRG-IinA FITZGERALD or 
ITZSBMONS, .She does not knar if RUBY has ever maintained any kind 
if contact or correspondence with VIRGUDLA. She does not knc.-r how he remained in San Francisco, California, After he returned from 
an Francisco to Chicago, sometime in the late 1930 's, he worked for a 
abor union in Chicago and was associated in this work with one LEOIT 
LNU), LEON was later killed. JACK adopted the name LEON for his 
iddle name, in honor of this person. During World War II, RUBY was in 
he United States Air Force and worked as a ground crevnnan on an 
ircraft. Shortly after the war when he was discharged from the Air 
orce, he went into business with t^ro or three of his brothers in a 
irm called the Advertising Specialities Coirrpany in Chicago, Illinois, 
e remained in this business for only a short time and then sold out 
is interest in the company to his brothers. At that time his 
ister, EVA, was living in Dallas, Texas, and was operating a night.

cIuTd in Dallas. She apparently had sone trouble in the manageinent of 
this club, and JACK RUBY came to Dallas from Chicago, investing money 
in the club, and they started operating the club together. She 
believes that this club, name \;inknown to her, vas re-named the Silver 
Spur Club after JACK RUBY became associated with it. 

ALICE REAVES NICHOLS furnished thp following information viu, 
regard to friends and acquaintances of JACK RUBY which she can recall: 

MARTDT GBIHCE: Lifelong friend of RUBY who was originally 

from Chicago, Illinois, and who was 
associated with RUBY for a short time in the operation of 
the Silver Sp\ir Club. GIMELE is now deceased. 

RALPH PAUL: A friend of RUBY of many years standing. PAUL 
.loaned RUBY $2,500.00 which enabled RUBY to 
' purchase the Club Vegas in Dallas, Texas. PAuT. now has the 
Bull Pen Drive-In Restaurant in Arlington, Texas. PAUL and 
RUBY apparently first became acquainted throxigh PAUL'S 
patronage of the Silver Spur Club in Dallas, which RUBY 
operated. PAUL did not have any financial interest in the 1 
Club Vegas or any other business of RUBY's as a result of ■ 
having loaned him money. He took a note instead as evidence 
of this debtovred by JACK RUBY. 

- CECIL and JEAN HAMLBT, husband and irife: These people were 

friends of JACK RU 
beginning shortly after he arrived in Dallas, Texas, from 
Chicago, Illinois, and bought into the Silver Spiir Club. Th 
occasionally helped him with the Silver Spur when he needed 
extra help for a special occasion. Their present whereabout 
are unknown, but CECIL HA14LI1T is believed to be associated 
with a meat cutter's union o?: a baker's union in Dallas, Tex

"LITTLE DADDY" IJELSOU: This man is a Negro entertainer. 

Da-iiciTig and druicrdjig in a band are 
his specialities. JACK RUBY managed IffiLSOH for a short tima 
in ahout 195 6> fi^<i on one occasion took hiiu to Chicago, 
Illinois^ vhere he seciared a job for KELSON, in a night club. 
This job lasted for about one month or six weeks after which 
RUBY and NELSON retvimed to Dallas, Texas. 

NED WEISBROD and SAM LASSEN: These men are originally from 

Chicago, Illinois, and it is 
believed their families have been kncR-m to JACK RUBY for ■ 
many years. V7EISBR0D and LASSEN have been around Dallas, 
Texas, for several years in the selling business. They were 
last known to be selling sporting goods, boats and other 
items of that natiire. They frequented the Silver Spur Bar 
while JACK RUBY operated it. They were also habitues of • 
the Club Vegas which was operated by RUBY. 

ADRIAN HIGH; This man was from Tulsa, Oklahoma, and was in 
the oil business. He allegedly has a brother- 
ia-law in Chicago, Illinois, who is very wealthy and who 
formerly a-Tned a night club called the Chez Paree. This 
club is now closed. HIGI was friendly with JACK RUBY while 
RUBY was operating the Silver Spur Club and also while he 
operated the Club Vegas. HIGH was a contemporary in 
association with RUBY of NED WEISBROD and SAM LASSEN. 

JACK RUBY does not have any enemies of any importance to her 
icwledge. The only person she ever heard him express any animosity 
cward was the man who took over the operation of the Bob Wills Ranch 
ouse Club in Dallas when RUBY lost that club. RUBY told her that he 
onsidered this man to be unfair in his dealings and believed he had 

Nichols (Alice R.) Exhibit No. 5355 — Continued 


DL 144-1639 


■unfairly influenced 0. L, WIMS, the ovmer of the property on vhich 
that cluh was located. This unfair influence vas exerted in getting 
JACK RUBY out of "business there. 

She always got the impression that JACK RUBY was vrell 
liked "by his enrplcyees and "by the customers and other people with 
whom he had contact in the operation of his various night clubs. He 
was generous with his eniployees and would help them and other people 
financially whenever they were ?*n need of help. She does not Deliev< 
that such financial assistance ewer smounted to a great deal of money 
in any individual situation, but he was always ready to come to 
someone's assistance. 

During the time she associated with him, she never received 
the inrpression that JACK RUBY was afraid of anyone or anything. She 
never received any impression that JACK RUBY had any criminal or 
underworld connections either in Dallas, Texas, -or Chicago, Illinois 
He never expressed any fear for his well being or safety and never 
gave her any indication through his conversations that he had any 
worries, with the possible exception of his standing with the Federal 
Internal Revenue Service. He sometimes expressed concern about hew 
much money he owed in taxes. 

RUBY gave her the impression that he was not a very good 
business man. She got this impression from the fact that when he 
wo\ild open a club he would operate it until it was doing good businesi 
and then woiild turn his attention to expansion. She does not believfi 
this is a sound business practice, in that a person should build his 
business on a solid foundation before he undertakes a new business. 

She chai'aeterized JACK RUBY as a gregarious, openhanded 
extrovert, and there was nothing mysterious or conspiratorial in his 

Nichols (Alice R.) Exhibit No. 5355 — Continued 



p.;rsoi2ality a-akeup. He has a quick teiaiper and oii occasion can 126001113 
oaysically violent on veiy short notice. Hovrever, he forgets such 
outbursts quickly, and his temper "cools off" quickly. She has never 
^cnow-n him to harhor a grudge against anyone, vith the possible 
exception of the person mentioned above vho took O'/er the management 
Df the Bob Wills Ranch House Club. 

While she knew him and associated with him, he dated other 
rcmen on occasions, and on occasions she dated other men. JACK RUBY 
ras not a woman-chaser, and she kna/s of no prostitutes or even 
promiscuous women with \i'acm JACK HUBY was ever associated. She 
jelieves that there was a limited nusiber of that type person who 
Trequented some of RUBY's night clubs; however, he did not cater to 
ihat kind of trade, and she does not suppose that there were any 
nore of those people frequenting his clubs th an frequent other clubs 
Ln Dallas. 

Over the years, JACK RUBY has lived in several different . 
-ocations in Dallas^ Texas, most of these being apartment houses. He 
las sometimes lived alone, sometimes living with his ^sister, EVA, and 
sometimes had a male roommate. 

JACK EUBY's social and sexual habits and activities were 
loraial, and she has never received any impression, indication or 
^formation to indicate that JACK RUBY has any homosexual tendencies. 

^■Thile she associated with him, JACK RUBY gambled on 
)Ccasions, and this is one of the principal reasons she never seriously- 
considered marrying him. She does not believe he gambled in any large 
■mounts of money, and that he confined the gaiubling activities to card 
;anies. He ne^'er discussed his gambling' activities ojr- preferences with 
ler. The only club operated by JACK RUBY where any gamblers hung out 
ras the Club Vegas. She recalled that one (FMU) MC WILLIE and one 
'OHMiT ROSS, who were both gamblers, frequented the Club Vegas. She

does not "believe, however, that these men had ar:y close friendship 
or acquaintance with JACK RUBY. V/hen RUBY vanted. to gamble he usuall; 
went to the Airtists' Club on St, Paul Street, Dallas, and played in a 
card gaoie which went on .there. The Artists' Club is navf closed. 

She has never known JACK RUBY to ewe acy gambling debt or t 
have any gamblirig debt a^red to him. 

From time to time RUBY enrployed oTf-duty policemen for 
security in the night clubs which he operated. Ee did not allcw 
ra-rdyism of any sort in his clubs, and she has seen him, on a few 
occasions, forcibly remove rowdy people from the premises of his clxib. 
On one occasion while removing such a person, the person bit RUBY on 
one of his fingers and consequently a part of the finger had to be 

JACK RUBY is a healthy physical specimen and keeps himself 
in good shape at all times. He worked out regularly at the YMCA ±a 
Dallas and particularly enjoyed swimming. 

Other forms of recreation enjoyed by JACK RUBY were dinner 
dates, motion pictures and legitimate theater. He is a sports fan 
and particularly likes boxing. Whenever they did date they would 
ehgage in one of those activities. 

RUBY never mentioned to her having had any trouble with 
any individual, group or organization in Chicago, Illinois, or Dallas,,, 
Texas. He would go to Chicago, Illinois, on an average of once a 
year. He always had a specific reason for going to Chicago, such as 
ah illness in the family or a visit. She never knew of any business 
connection. or business reason for his travel to Chicago, IHinois. 

During the time she associated with JACK RUBY she would sea 
him on an average of two times per week. JACK often told her that 

Nichols (Alice R.) Exhibit No. 5355 — Continued 



fee was too good for him or that he vas not good enoTigh for herj hovrever, 
,e vould never tell her why he was mcii±D2 such a statement. He always 
reated her well;, and the only difficulties he had in his personal 
elationships with other people occurred, with employees of the various 
Ight clubs which he operated. 

RTIBY appeared to be interested only casually in politics and 
id not appear to have any strong or definite political pairfcy affiliation. 
hes. never heard him discuss any particular political issues. She never 
eard him express any partic\alar like or dislike for any political figure, 
larty or philosophy. 

She described him as being a highly emotional man^, but she does 
,ot believe JACK RUBY is neurotic. She said he is religious . en-i is very 

oud of his Jewish backgro'und arid heritage. RUBY attends the Temple 
teanuel in Dallas where the Rabbi is GERALD KLEBI and the Temple 
hearith Israel^, which is located on Douglas Street, Dallas, where the 
abbi is HHIEL SILVERMAfl. RUBY does not speak Hebrew or Yiddish 
anguages, and she does not believe he has any kncv/ledge of any other 
oreign languages. 

She advised that she was extremely shocked when she heard . that 
ACK RUBY had shot and killed lEE HARVEY 0S17ALD, and she could think of . 
o reason or explanation for this crime. She said she considered it 
laost unbelievable that JACK RUBY would be capable of such an act, 
nd after having thought much about it she still cannot understand how 
his came about. 

ALICE REAVES KCCHOLS was sham a photograph of LEE EPMEY 
Sy7ALD. She advised that OSWALD is unknown to her, and she does not 
elieve she has ever seen him. She advised further that she does not 
ecall anyone of his likeness or description having been associated 

. ith or acquainted with JACK RUBY during the time she associated with

%w- 'MALICE REAVES NICHOLS, 8797 Redondo Drive, Dallas, 
Texas, telephone DA 1-3687, telephonically advised that on 
Monday evening, January 13, 1964, a J^r ._ nKN<;nN^, who identified 
himself as a private investigator employed by the defense 
.. attorneys for JACK L. RUBY, came to see her and talked to her 
for about one and one-half hours. This was in relation to her 
knowledge of JACK L. RUBY and particularly to any knowledge she ^ 
had of the whereabouts of RUBY on November 22, 1963. She advised 
that she told Mr, DENSON what she knew and after he had gone that 
evening and during the next two or three days she recalled the 
• interview she had had with SAs ALBERT SAYERS and PAUL L. SCOTT on 
November 25, 1963. She said she believed she had not told SAs 
SAYERS and SCOTT about a telephonic contact she had had with 
JACK L. RUBY on November 22, 1963. 

She furnished the following information with regard to " 
that telephonic contact: 

She had been working at her regular job on that date 
and had gone out to lunch between 1:00 and 2:00 PM. She returned 
from lunch at about 2:00 PM and was advised that she had received 
a telephone call from JACK RUBY while she was. out. He had left a 
telephone number for her to call. At about 2:10 PM she telephoned 
the number and the man answering sounded to her like a Negro. She ,: 
said for this reason she believes the number was probably at the 
Carousel Club; however, she does not know this to be a fact. The 
man who answered the telephone told her that RUBY was on another "'-'':'.. 
telephone at the time, and she left her number at the office, 
Riverside 1-1321, and asked the man to have RUBY call her. 

At about 2:15 PM she received a telephone call from JACK 
RUBY. This call lasted for only about one minute and RUBY was 
apparently calling to tell her what a terrible thing he thought it 
was that President KENNEDY had been assassinated. 

RUBY again called her on November 22, 1963, at about 
7:30 PM at her home. This was also a very short conversation, 
and he mentioned to her that he was going to the Synagogue, He 
also told her that his clubs were closed. She does not know from 
where RUBY was calling. This is the last contact of any kind she 
has had with JACK L. RUBY,

January 20, 196U. 

She advised that the only other contact she has had 
other than the interview with SA SAYERS and SA SCOTT and the 
conversation with Mr, DENSON in connection with the JACK RUBY 
case has been a telephone call from SA LEO L. ROBERTSON of the 
FBI at Dallas and a telephone call on December 31, 1963, from a 
newsman of the Associated Press. She did not know that man's 
name and declined to discuss anything with him. She said when 
SA ROBERTSON called he asked her if the names of several people 
were known to her or familiar to her. She recalls that she did 
not know any of the people whom he named.

Jlr. Leon Jav/orski 

Attorney at Lav/ 

Bank of the Scuthv/est Building 

Iloustoa 2, Taxas 

Dear Leoa: 

This v/ill acknowlecJs© receipt of your letter of 
February 5, 1964 v;IiGro you asked that I relate to you 
an account of my visit with Lee Ilarvey Osv;ald while ho 
was ia custody of the City of Dallas police. 

On Saturday afternoon following the assassination 
on Friday, Z was contacted by a lav^yer friend of cine v;ho 
wanted to knov/ whether or not Oswald was boins represented 
by an attorney at the tirae. I told him that I did not 
know, but would uaI:o an inquiry into the matter because • 
it had occurred to mo that soao question nifjht bo raised 
as to his lack of representation during a critical tiae 
nr'te-r his arrest. 

X then contaced a Dallas attorney who is active 
in the practice of criminal lav7 and asked hin to give me 
his opinion as to the roQuircmeats of the State law for 
an appoiatraent of an attorney by the Court. lie advised 
tue that under the State law, there would to no obligation 
for the Court to appoint an attorney until the nan had 
been indicted by a Grand Jury. Since there had been no 
iadictnont at that tiKO, he thought 'xhoro v;as no obliga- 
tion for an attorney to be appointed. 

I then contacted the District .attorney to deteraine 
whether or not he know if Oswald was then represented by 
an attorney. Ho advised mo that so far as he know, Oswald 
T;as not then represented by an attorney, nor had ho made 
any demand or request that an attorney be appointed to 
represent him or taade available to him.

I then contacted a Captain on tlio City of Dallas 
FolicG Force to detoi-aiino v/hotiier or not CGv;alcJ was rop- • 
resonted by an attorney or v/hothcr ho had mado any domand 
for an attorney. This Captain, v;ho is an administrative 
assistant to the Chief oi" Police, advised mo that so far 
as he knev/, Csv/ald was not thcii represented by an attorney, 
and that ho had nado no roqi^ost of the Police that an at- 
torney be made available to him or that ho be periiiitted to 
call any attorney. Ho ftarthor stated that so far as he 
know, when Csv/ald appeared before the liasristrato on Friday 
night, that no request had boon made by Oswald that 
an attorney be appointed. The Captain fui*ther stated that 
he understood that efforts v;ere bains tnado by soacone to 
contact an attorney in New York who might be interested 
in roprcsentins Oswald. I ashed the Captain to advise 
mo that if Oswald desired an attorney and did not have 
one, that the Dallas Ear Association would attor.ipt to see 
that one was made available to hira. The Captain then ad- 
vised me that 2 was perfectly v/elcoino to come down and 
see Osv/ald and detorrsine myself whether or not Oswald 
desired an attorney. I told the Captain that I had not 
yet decided whether or not anything needed to be done, 
but that I would be in touch v;ith hira if I should decide 
to co'^Q down to the City Kail. 

After discussing the matter with tv/o or three other " 
attorneys, I concluded that perhaps it would bo wise if 
I went down to the City Ilall a.nd see Oswald, and see for 
myself that he was not boins deprived of his I'islits to an 
attorney and that if he desired to have the Court or the 
Bar Association to provide an attorney for him. 

At about 5:00 or 5:30PI3 Saturday afternoon, I then 
went to the City Hall and went to the office of the Cliicf 
of Police. The Chief said that he v;as glad to see rae and 
he personally took cie to the jail v;here Oswald was located. 
The Chief intx-oduced mo to Oswald and offered to make avail- 
able a place for me to talk to Oswald, but I advised hira 
that the cell would be satisfactory. The Chief then stepped 
back so as to permit iao to coaverso with Osv/ald without any 
interference on his part.

TRANSLATOR'S NOTE : It is noted that the original letter is written in a conversa- 
tional and personal vein without regard for proper punctuation. 

Nueva Gerona, Dec. -25, '63 
My Children : 

From the visit of my brothers, I learned about you. It is a consolation to hear that 
our children are taking very good advantage of the time. It is one more compensa- 
tion of Divine Providence for our sufferings. It is difficult to write these days in 
which memories are so vivid and it is almost impossible to coordinate ideas because 
emotion chokes us. It is at Christmas time when sentiments, through the soitow of 
absence, draw us closer to our loved ones. The more presents we have the more we 
are aware of the separation. But the sorrow is not important, my children, and if 
having you always in my heart and thinking intensely of you, it increases, then blessed 
be the sorrow ! Fortunately, we are strong ; a great faith sustains us with the firmest 
hopes of our soon being reunited with the family. Any of the steps that are being 
taken must prosper. Our desires for peace, to live in the company of our children, 
stir us to hope a little for comprehension and assistance. At this time of the year, :>0 
years ago, Mama and I were an engaged couple in love, full of illusions and faith in the 
future. "We were enjoying the preparations for the marriage which happily would 
eternally unite our destinies. We were making at that time many plans, converted 
since into a full and beautiful reality. We were ecstatically dreaming about the great 
adventure of love, and you. my children, were the summation of our dreams. We were 
in ectasy over the prospect of many children, the combination of our flesh, of our blood, 
of our souls in the purest ideals of parents in bloom. Our de.sires were culminated with 
the arrival of such a beautiful group of children exceeding our expectations — our aspi- 
rations — children extremely gifted with the most brilliant qualities and virtues ; — 
honest — intelligent — children who have the love and respect of one another — who adore 
and devotedly admire their parents — children who work hard, study earnestly — who 
make sacrifices whenever necessary. In sum, good children, a benefit to the family 
and to society — loving children who gladly cooperate with one another without com- 
plaint — who go through life joined fraternally in perfect communion with God and 
family. Such are our children for whom today and every day in our prayers we 
humbly thank God. The All Powerful gives you, my children, a glory of a repeated 
verse of a most beautiful descendency ! What else in the world can surpass it? 
Nothing that I may know and it is for this reason that I want to sum in that idea 
my great desire of happiness for each one of my children at this Christmas time. 
On the anniversary, shower Mama with pretty cards, letters, photos and as much as 
can make her happy. It occurs to me, Cesar, that you with Mauricio, could give her a 
good gift. I am not referring now to the marvelous gift of free giving, it is a little 
grand gift. Since he has so many resources and friends, he could arrange that on the 
basis of her 30 years, her photo be published in a newspaper section. It would be 
something to fill us with pride, to do justice to this great wife and mother so that her 
friends may not forget her. That would do us all good and the reason is plausible. 
Not always are so many years of marriage completed encompassed with so many chil- 
dren and grandchildren, nor under the circumstances which surround it. If you do 
not have a good photo, ask Felo immediately for it. (I imagine some persons pale 
with envy, among them some neurotic!) I am not able to give any gift, but I pray for 
(her/your) health and ask for (her/it) so intensely that God is listening to me. 
Freddie is getting along very well in his studies. It has taken him time and work, 
but in the end he will graduate from this course. I always believed that he would, 
but I fear for him for the vei-y hard examinations that await him. Sally also — I do 
not know what career — and I am grateful to Jim because he wishes, as we, that she 
continue studying until receiving her doctorate. He would only desire to offer his 
assistance and inspiration. I received a telegram from Felo explaining the call that 
he made to Cesar after the visit. I am happy that he calmed you. and I am presently

all right, and give yoi; my messages. I know that every one has moved tirelessly and 
that on our negotiations being renewed, we will be in first place. To all, I am thankful 
for Mama who needs to rest with peace and security. My daughters, in spite of the 
problemfi that you have, you have found time to move Heaven and earth and our great 
son with his business relations has succeeded in locating us in a preferable place. I 
received a letter from Sari on Oct. 27, from Silvia, with her photo in the office — the 3rd 
that I received ; of the rest I do not know what they look like now — on Nov. 8, from 
Cesar, Julie and Lolie on Nov. 11. Thus we are able to endure solitude. Thus they 
help us to wait. Mama telegraphed me, content because she already received many. 
Remember that you must take a moment and write to one another. It is sad to read 
that there are times when you do not know about one another "because the telephone 
is expensive now." Annie needs to adopt a firm resolution for the New Year of involv- 
ing herself in the responsibilities of the family. We are proud of your conduct in col- 
lege, in a strange home. We are completely satisfied in having such a good and studious 
daughter who has perfectly fulfilled her obligations. But you have not kept contact 
with your sisters — too often unmindful of their problems when you should share them. 
Therefore, my pretty brunette, you yourself think of the best way to cooperate with 
them. It would be nice for you to share the time with your brothers and sisters. 
Would it be possible, love, for you to spend week-ends and vacations at Silvia's house? 
In this way you could be of great benefit, just as Lolie has been for some time with 
Julie. You are a complete woman. You understand that you have obligations, in 
addition to your studies which you are to pursue with eagerness above everything. If 
what I suggest upsets in any way your school tasks, then you should continue as you 
are and in no way should you neglect them. Understood? I leave it to your own 
judgment, but anyway maintain frequent contact with all the family, and watch out 
for parties and drinking ! Silvia, it is difficult to become oriented with you — who are 
in contact with the atmosphere and who have taken up to now so many intelligent and 
proper steps. You will continue with that vast experience, determining what ought 
to be done on each occasion. It is one more reason for pride for us. Before I forget, 
let me congratiilate you on your fine position. You are worthy of these distinctions. 
Tell me who this is who sa.vs he is my friend — he careful. I do not have any friend 
who might be here, through Dallas, so reject his friend shii> until you give me his name. 
You are alone, without men to protect you and you can be deceived. Grant me, blondie, 
the additional sacrifice of not going out Wednesda.vs with your girl friends. Stay for a 
good time at home. You still are not free — you should avoid everything that might 
affect your good name. Never accept going out with anyone or to the house of anyone 
if you are not accompanied by your brothers. That of Guille is still not definite — he can 
return — I am sure that he loves you and adores his children in his way. He was 
criminally indisposed against you by his neurotic mother. When you have to be under- 
standing, make yourself interested, but be careful not to exceed. Do not abandon 
literature. Persevere, write a good book even though it takes you years. Sarita, love, 
your letters are always interesting to me in that you tell me everything is marvelous. 
It is the best sedative for calming my anxieties for information concerning the family. 
Your letters, as those of all your brothers and sisters, fill my life with joy and hopes. 
They come to be the only light which enters the darkness in which I am living. I 
regret not having received yet a photo of your Jim. Mama was enchanted by him. 
I hope that Cesar furnishes you with spending money in sufficient amount. Do not 
scrape — please — go to your brother. It would please me for the elders to arrange for 
an allowance. I leave it to your judgment. Tell me as much as you can of your activi- 
ties. Lolie, beautiful blonde, you do not tell about yourself even though, in spite of 
being an adolescent, you are already a woman because of the harsh experience through 
which you have live<l. Your labors and sufferings have made you grow intellectually 
and spiritually. I am happy that you have in C. and J. the tenderness of brothers and 
parents. Soon you will again be my little spoiled girl, my heart's desire. Take care of

space left. I am happy with your progress in the program. To Ama, Javier, Jorge,

February 14, 1964 
Dear Reader: 

Mark Twain said that a d'tference of opinion is what makes 
horse races. It is also what makes magazines. 

If we did not disagree with many people on many things 
there would be no point in publishing American Opinion. 
While if we did not disagree among ourselves, we could have 
this magazine written by the office boy. (Which he thinks would 
mean a big improvtment.) 

The core of this discourse is that, contrary to what you 
have recently been told by about half of the press of the United 
States, American Opinion is not the voice of The John_Bircb 
Society. It is not even the voice of your editor, except in those 
paragraphs which are published over my name. In fact, in con- 
nection with the very article in our last issue which caused 
several dozen assorted editorial writers to have apoplexy, I dis- 
agreed with a part of the major premise and with some of the 
conclusions. But I still say, as I did then, that it was a superb 
commentary, which we were delighted to present to our readers. 

Naturally my views are the only completely orthodox ones 
extant. But in this current issue, from what I have seen at the 
galley proof stage, there are enough heresies to start a new 
magazine. For we are not publishing the work of robots, but of 
several of the best informed and most brilliant writers in the 
whole realm of American Conservative thought. 

May you, as Milton would have put it, find their opinions 
helpful in the building of knowledge.

And Its Aftermath 

Congressman Martin Dies of Texas 
served seven years as Chairman of the 
House Committee on Un-American Ac- 
tivities, the historic 
Dies Committee. 
Now practicing law 
in Texas, Congress- 
man Dies remaint 
one of the most out- 
spoken foes of the 
International Com- 
munist Conspiracy. He is author of the 
recent and explosive volume, Martin 
Dies' Story — which we recommend. 

■ In the first chapter of Theodore 
Roscoe's The Web of Conspiracy , which 
is the story of the assassination of 
President Lincoln, Roscoe says that the 
murder of Lincoln by John Wilkes 
Booth could not be concealed by offi- 
cial censorship, or the government's 
juggling of English, or a propaganda 
treatment, or re-writing of history: 

'What censorship, phrase-juggling, 
propaganda, and the doctoring of 
history did conceal was the fact that 
Booth could not have murdered Lin- 
coln had not Lincoln been be- 
trayed. . . . 

The betrayal which permitted a 

■ - lone gunman to walk into a theater 

in the nation's capital and shoot 

down the President was securely 

hidden away. 

This concealment and distortion of 
'the truth is a black chapter in our 
nation's history. Such a thing may be 
far more serious in the tragic case of 

MARCH, 1964 

the murder of President Kennedy. 


It is difficult to understand why 
President Johnson at first approved a 
Texas Inquiry by the Attorney General 
of Texas, and then appointed a com- 
mission headed by Chief Justice War- 
ren, and then yielded to Warren's in- 
sistence — accompanied by a threat of 
resignation — that the Texas Inquiry 
not be held. 

What G)nstitutional authority is 
there for such a Presidential com- 
mission? Why was not the Committee 
on Un-American Activities, or the 
Senate Internal Security Sub-Committee 
permitted to conduct the probe? And 
why did President Johnson ignore the 
proposal of a close personal friend of 
the President and a member of the 
Presidential commission, that a bi- 
partisan Committee of Congress con- 
duct the investigation? Why was it 
deemed necessary to establish a com- 
mission of dubious Constitutional au- 
thority — to say the least — handpicked 
by a President seeking reelection? 

Why was Chief Justice Warren ap- 
pointed chairman of this commission? 
As a member of the Supreme Court he 
may even be confronted with the ap- 
peal of Jack Rubenstein. Though he 
disqualifies himself, his inconsistent 
roles as Chief Justice of the Supreme 
Court and chairman of the commission 
may taint the findings of the com- 
mission, as well as a later decision of 
the Supreme Court. It has even been 
widely reported that Warren is on 
record as opposing the impropriety of 


Oliver Exhibit No. 1 

Olivek Exhibit No. 1 — Continued 


such* a dual role. He did not, however, 
refuse the chairmanship. Why choose 
Warren when there are millions of 
Americans, rightly or wrongly, who do 
not have confidence in the Chief Justice 
because of his persistent defiance of the 
great legal principle of stare decisis (to 
stand by decided cases) ? 

The doubts expressed here are not 
meant to reflect upon the patriotism 
of Justice Warren or the other mem- 
bers of this commission. But, under 
our system of freedom, Americans have 
a right, and it is their duty, to ask such 


Within one hour of the President's 
death the Dallas police arrested Lee 
Harvey Oswald, and the fact that he 
was a pro-Castro s)mpathizer and a 
"Marxist" was made public. Never- 
theless the usual "Liberal" spokesmen 
blamed the President's death upon 
"right-wing extremists" and "hate 
mongers." The Voice of America 
beamed to the world the indictment 
that Dallas was a city "of the extreme 
right-wing movement." Tass, the offi- 
cial Russian News Agency said: "Presi- 
dent Kennedy of the United States has 
been assassinated. His death is blamed 
on extreme right groups." It reported 
that it got this information from the 
Voice of America- 
Even after the news services pub- 
lished the facts about Oswald — his de- 
fection to Russia; his affidavit re- 
nouncing American citizenship; his 
residence in Russia; his record of Com- 
munist beliefs and activities, which 
were well known to our government 
and nationally publicized before the 
murder of the President — the spokes- 
men for so-called "Liberals," and the 
duped or uninformed, continued to link 
"right-wing extremists" with "left-wing 
extremists" as responsible for the mur- 
der. Oswald has almost always been 
dt:scribed as a "Marxist" and not a 

Communist, even after the evidence 
was conclusive that he was a Com- 
munist and that, like so many Com- 
munists, he used the words Marxist and 
Communist interchangeably. While it 
is true that Socialists, Social Democrats, 
and other Left-wing groups, as well as 
many so-called "Liberals," derive their 
social and political philosophy from 
Karl Marx, the only groups whose 
members label themselves "Marxist" are 
Communist. . As. a matter of fact the 
Communists have always contended 
that they are the only true Marxists in 
the world. After all, Karl Marx did 
write the Communist Manifesto. 

To many uninformed people a 
Marxist is much different from a Com- 
munist. It is therefore extrem.ely im- 
portant for the "powers that be" to 
conceal or becloud the fact that the 
President of the United States was 
murdered by a Communist whose 
record of Communist activity was well 
known to our government; whose place 
of work on the day of the murder was 
well known to our government, and 
who was thus — knowingly — allowed a 
perfect opportunity to kill the President, 
The enforcement of our anti-Com- 
munist laws and the most elementary 
precaution could have prevented the 
dastardly act. Our government knew 
about Communist Oswald but it did 
not act as the law required! 


It is equally important for the gov- 
ernment to convince our people that 
Oswald was acting on his own initiative 
and not in furtherance of a foreign or 
domestic conspiracy. (Later I will show 
why there has been a concerted cam- 
paign to disassociate Oswald from 
Communists at home and abroad.) On 
November twenty-third there was an 
Associated Press story from Washing- 
ton which quoted authorities of the 
State Department as saying, "they have 
no evidence indicating involvement of 


Oliver Exhibit No. 1 — Continued 


the Soviet Union or any other foreign 
power in the assassination of President 
Kennedy." The Associated Press said 
on November twenty-third that Oswald 
was a "loner" and kept pretty much to 
himself. This line was followed many 
times in the so-called "Liberal" news- 
papers and on television and radio. 

Stories appeared in the newspapers 
to the effect that, when Oswald was a 
child in New York, a teacher warned 
of his mental condition. The "Liberal" 
columnists and television commentators 
continued to emphasize that President 
Kennedy was the victim of "extreme 
rightists and hate mongers." Minis- 
terial associations, even in Dallas, 
warned against "extremists" and "hate 
mongers," CORE and NAACP issued 
a statement that President Kennedy was 
killed because he championed human 
rights (meaning -the Civil Rights Pro- 
gram). Even President Johnson, in his 
first speech to Congress, warned against 
"extremists and hate mongers." In fact 
the vast majority of "Liberal" leaders, in 
and out of the government, seized upon 
this opportunity to divert attention from 
the all important facts that President 
Kennedy was shot by a Communist,* 
that thirty years of investigation of 
Communism by Congress and by other 
countries proved the basic and ele- 
mentary fact that every Communist 
must accept ironclad discipline and obey 
orders, and that Communists never 
commit political crimes except in obe- 
dience to orders of superiors. 

In the first Report issued unanimous- 
ly by the Dies Committee — composed 
of Democrats, Republicans, "Liberals," 
and conservatives — we found: 

The Communists in the United 
States openly admit their allegiance 
to the Communist International at 
Moscow, and glory in the fact that 
. they obey all the orders issued from 
there immediately and implicitly. . . . 
The following statement appears on 

the 19} S membership card of the 
Communist party, originals of which 
were introduced as evidence before 
the committee: "The undersigned 
declares his allegiance to the program 
and statutes of the Communist In- 
ternational and of the Communist 
Party of the United States of 
America, and agrees to submit to the 
discipline of the party and to engage 
actively in its work." . . . The Com- 
munist International is dominated 
by the Russian Communist party

sinated President Kennedy. 

and Soviet officials, and could not 
e^ist without the wholehearted sup- 
port of the leaders of the Russian 
Communist party and the financial 
backing of the Soviet Government. 

That Report was submitted to 
Congress on January 3, 1939, and a copy 
of it went to every member of Congress 
and of the Executive Branch of the 
government. It was printed in news- 
papers throughout the country and dis- 
tributed to public libraries. The quoted

excerpts have been reaffirmed by every 
Committee of Congress or agency of 
the Executive Branch which has ever 
investigated Communism. This prin- 
ciple of discipHne (unquestioned execu- 
tion of orders of superiors) has been 
demonstrated throughout the world 
upon too many occasions to enumerate. 
It is true that since our investigation 
and exposure of Communists in this 
country the Communist Party stopped 
issuing cards and printing other in- 
criminating evidence. But Communism 
is dogmatic. It may change its tactics 
from time to time to deceive the un- 
wary, but its basic principle of absolute 
Party discipline, and its objective of 
world conquest, never changes. 


Is THKRE any question that Oswald 
was a Communist.'' 

The Associated Press in a story from 
Dallas quoted Dallas Police Chief Jesse 
Curry as saying that Oswald admitted 
he was a Communist. Curry added, 
"He didn't try to hide it." In another 
Associated Press story from Dallas, 
dated November twenty-eighth, Dallas 
Police Chief Curry is quoted as saying: 
"He [Oswald] readily admitted he was 
a Communist. Apparently he was 
proud of being a Communist. Last 
year Oswald said in New Orleans he 
was not a Communist but a Marxist. 
But actually Oswald has never drawn 
any distinction between the two." 

District Attorney Henry Wade was 
quoted by the Associated Press as say- 
ing, "There was lots of material (in 
Oswald's room) dealing with Com- 
munism, such as the Daily Worker 
\sic\ and there was even more material 
dealing with Fair Play for Cuba Or- 
ganization." In the same story Chief 
Curry is quoted as saying that, after 
Oswald's arrest, photographs were 
found "showing him standing at at- 
tention with a rifle in one hand and in 
the other a copy of the Communist 

newspaper. The Worker'' 

When Oswald was arrested, accord- 
ing to the Associated Press, "he an- 
nounced he wanted for his lawyer John 
Abt of New York, well known for past 
Communist defendants." 

An Associated Press story dated 
November twenty-fourth reported that 
"When Oswald on November 2, 1959 
turned in his American passport to our 
Embassy in Moscow he presented his 
affidavit which stated: "I affirm that 
my allegiance is to the Soviet Socialistic 
Republic." And he told American Em- 
bassy officials, "I am a Marxist." 

Four years ago, in Oswald's inter- 
view with Priscilla Johnson, on the 
third floor of Moscow's Hotel Metropole, 
he referred to the Soviet Government 
as "my government" and he said: 
"Even if I am not accepted [for citizen- 
ship] on no account will I go back to 
the United States." He said (and this 
was a most significant statement) that 
when he talked to Soviet officials they 
warned that neither Oswald's wish nor 
theirs would determine whether his 
citizenship application was to be ac- 
cepted. They said it depended on the 
"over-all" political atmosphere at the 
moment. Meanwhile they offered Os- 
wald the sanctuary of a prolonged stay 
in the U.S.S.R. 

The husband of one of Oswald's 
landladies (he had a room for his wife 
in Oak Cliff and a room for himself 
near his job under the name of O. H. 
Lee) was reported by the Press as say- 
ing "Oswald talked Marxism, Marxism, 
Marxism. Oswald refused to eschew 
violence as a method for achieving 
ends." [The above statement of Mr. 
Paine was reported by Sid Moody, 
Associated Press newsfeatures writer.] 

There is no dispute about the fact 
that when Oswald was in New Orleans 
he was active in the Fair Play for Cuba's 
local committee, of which he claimed 
to be Secretary. (An investigation and 
Report by the Senate Internal Security 


Oliver Exhibit No. 1 — Continued 


Sub-Committee showed conclusively 
that these groups were largely financed 
by Castro. FBI Chief J. Edgar Hoover 
stated that these committees were heavi- 
ly infiltrated by Communists.) He was 
even shown on a national television net- 
work carrying a pro-Castro placard. 

In a story which appeared in the 
Dallas Morning News, Assistant Dis- 
trict Attorney William F. Alexander is 
quoted as saying that evidence found in 
Oswald's Oak Cliff room proves he was 
"an active worker in the Communist 
Party." He said the evidence included 
letters in which a Communist leader 
thanked Oswald "for past services." 

How much more evidence would be 
required to prove that Oswald was a 
Communist? For years the Communist 
Party has not issued membership cards 
or kept written records. During the 
early years of the Dies Committee we 
were able to secure membership cards 
from the various police departments 
and other sources. We compiled the 
only Hst of Communists in the United 
States that is in existence. The original 
list was left with the Committee when 
I quit Congress in 1945. What hap- 
pened to that list I do not know. I do 
know that, since the Communist Party 
discontinued keeping any written rec- 
ords, there is no evidence more con- 
clusive of Communist membership or 
affiliation than the evidence marshalled 
against Lee Harvey Oswald. 

In my next article, I hope to discuss 
the circumstances linking the Soviet 
Union with Oswald's murder of the 
President. Naturally such evidence 
miist be circumstantial and based upon 
the dogmatic pattern of Communist 
behavior. The Communists are too 
clever to leave any trace of connection 
with Oswald other than certain cir- 
cumstances I hope to discuss. 

I shall also suggest the probable 
answer to the question that is being 



' ' t 

'■ / 





Oswald bragged to Police Chief Jesse Curry 
about being a Communist. 

asked by many people: "Will the 
Warren commission report the truth?** 
This question does not infer that the 
members of the commission are lacking 
in integrity and patriotism. But one 
columnist pointed out we cannot expect 
very much from the commission be- 
cause no member of the commission 
has had any investigative experience 
and the commission must rely upon the 
reports of other groups. In a sense each 
of these agencies is itself under investi- 
gation. This columnist, who writes for 
a large newspaper chain, said that it is 
naive to expect these officers to bear 
witness against themselves or, indeed, 
each other. He commented that it is 
not in the nature of bureaucracies to 
destroy their carefully nurtured fables 
of omniscience. 

I am not prepared to fully agree with 
the columnist. But as I shall explain, 
there are strong and compelling polit'cal 
reasons, as well as present international 
factors, to influence this probe and pre- 
vent a full disclosure of all of the ugly 
facts that have been camouflaged for 

MARCH, 1964

years but have now come to a climax in 
the assassination of President Kennedy. 

It must be remembered that all gov- 
ernments, including our own, suppress 
or distort facts in the name of national 
security or international policy. All of 
us recall that after our U-2 was shot 
down over Soviet territory the State 
Department issued a statement that this 
plane had strayed from its course, into 
Russian territory. When the Com- 
munists challenged our release about 
the plane, our President admitted that 
it was engaged in observation of mili- 
tary installations in Russia. It was 
finally admitted that we had been 
making these flights for some time. 

One must also keep in mind that it 
is not difficult for any Administration 
to persuade any Congressional Com- 
mittee that it must suppress vital facts 
in the interest of national security or 
our international policy. The Congress- 
men have no way of knowing or dis- 
covering whether certain facts will 
endanger our national security or inter- 
national policy. They must rely upon 
the judgment and integrity of the Ad- 
ministration in power, which pre- 
sumably has all the necessary facts upon 
which a correct judgment must be 

Sometimes the request of an Ad- 
ministration is sincere. Sometimes it is 
made for political purposes at home, 
which have nothing to do with national 
security or international policy. Having 
associated wilh politicians all my life, 
frankness compels me to confess that 
the great majority of them are strongly 
influenced by the all-important con- 
sideration of winning elections. Their 
business, whether Congressman or 
President, is getting elected and staying 
elected. Politicians, with very rare ex- 
ceptions, never confess mistakes. An 
Administration will do a great deal to 
prevent the exposure of its blunders. 

Perhaps in these human weaknesses 
politicians are not much different from 

the general run of humanity. The great 
difference is that we have a right to ex- 
pect our public officials to put our 
country's real interests above their own 
political interests. All of them solemnly 
swear to God that they will subordinate 
self in the service of our country. There 
have been many glorious periods in our 
history when the great majority of 
public servants performed their duties 
faithfully in fulfillment of oaths of 
office. These bright periods are be- 
coming increasingly less frequent — to 
the dire peril of our American Republic. 
Will the Warren commission be dif- 
ferent? On January nineteenth, counsel 
for the Warren commission stated that 
the commission will have to consider 
the possible timing of its report. What 
he did not say was that a commission 
which will consider the "timing" of its 
report will likely consider the political 
effect of that report. 


In order to overcome the skepticism 
of millions of Americans who have 
honest doubts about the Warren com- 
mission, the commission must discover 
and publish all of the facts about the 
role of Jack Rubenstein in the assassina- 
tion of President Kennedy. The com- 
mission has at its command the services 
of thousands of intelligence agents and 
police detectives to uncover the truth 
about Jack Leon Rubenstein, who in 
1947 changed his name to Jack Ruby. 
A private citizen has very limited 
facilities. However, I have searched 
some of my records and I have come 
up with certain interesting facts that 
may have no significance. 

I have been informed that the name 
Rubenstein is a common name among 
the Jews. There could be several or 
more Jack Rubensteins. According to 
my records some of the Rubensteins 
spelled their name Rubinstein. At any 
rate there is no question but that in 
1929 a man by the name of Jack Ruben- 


Oliver Exhibit No. 1 — Continued 


stein was on the Executive Bourd of the 
Young Communist League in the 
United States. We have an exhibit 
taken verbatim from the Communist 
Daily Wor\er to prove this fact. The 
Young Communist League is an or- 
ganization for Communists under 
twenty-one years of age. In 1929 the 
Jack Rubenstein, who shot Oswald, 
would have been approximately nine- 
teen years of age. 

According to our records the Jack 
Rubenstein who was a member of the 
Executive Committee or Bureau of the 
Young Communist League also assisted 
in the formation of The Revolutionary 
Youth and the publication Revolu- 
tionary Age. 

I have read in news stories that the 
Jack Rubenstein who shot Oswald has 
a brother Hyman Rubenstein and a 
sister named Ann Rubenstein. Our 
Committee Hearings mention an H. 
Rubinstein and an Annette Rubinstein 
and a Leon Rubenstein. 
- Now all of this may be mere coin- 
cidences and should be given no 
probative force until it is proved that 
the Jack Rubenstein in our records is 
the same person as the Jack Rubenstein 
who shot Oswald. The names Hyman 
and Ann are common names and our 
records only mention an H. Rubinstein 
and a Dr. Annette Rubinstein. I should 
mention, however, that in all my seven 
years of experience in conducting a vig- 
orous probe I found only one instance 
of such duplication of names. If the 
Dallas Jack Rubenstein is not the same 
.person as the Jack Rubenstein who 
was a prominent official of the Young 
Communist League in 1929, the Warren 
commission should produce the real 
Jack Rubenstein or account for his 
whereabouts or death. 

There was a story from Chicago that 
the police records for this period (1929- 
1930) have disappeared. When I held 
Hearings in Chicago they had extensive 
records of Communists, including their 

fingerprints. But even if these records 
are gone, I have furnished one who 
will participate in the inquiry with the 
names of known associates of the Com- 
mittee's Jack Rubenstein. It is reason- 
able to believe that some of these asso- 
ciates are alive. Somewhere there must 
be a photograph of the Jack Rubenstein 
who was in the Young Communist 
League in 1929. 

The H. Rubinstein and Ann Rubin- 
stein could well be different persons 
than the H. Rubinstein and Dr. An-

wise it must be assumed that they are

Communist apparatus. Or does it, Mr. 
Justice Warren?

Executive Bureau of the Young Com- 
munist League in 1929, there are other 
suspicious circumstances about Ruben- 
stein's role in the assassination which 
must be explained. 

According to a story appearing in the 
Dallas Morning News of January 
twenty-first, Jack Rubenstein went to 
Cuba in 1959, about nine months after 
Castro became that country's Com- 
munist dictator. 

A report which appeared in the 
Houston Chronicle December 1, 1963 
said: "Ruby (he had changed his name 
to Ruby from Rubenstein in 1947) was 
born Jack Rubenstein in Chicago, where 
he was known to police as a labor or- 
ganizer, a ticket 'scalper' and a 
gambler with reputed underworld ac- 
quaintances." Victor Riesel reports in 
his column dated November 30, 1963, 
that he had discovered that Ruby's night 
spot at one time was a haunt of Chicago 
hoods who came to Dallas to "case it" 
for a possible "take." He also disclosed 
what he found out about the under- 
world connections of Rubenstein when 
he lived in Chicago. 

Jack Rubenstein has one of the best 
known and highest-paid lawyers in 
America, who announced that $100,000 
in cash had been raised for his client's 
bail bond. At the hearing to determine 
whether to grant Rubenstein a bail 
bond, two psychiatrists testified he 
was mentally unbalanced. One was 
Dr. Walter Bromberg, Clinical Director 
of the Pine wood Psychiatric Hospital 
in Westchester County, New York. 
The other was Dr. Roy Schafer, a psy- 
chologist on the staff of Yale Univer- 
sity. It further appears uncontradicted 
that he cultivated Dallas policemen 
who frequently visited his night club. 
If he is mentally sick and has been for 
many years, even in his childhood, is it 
not strange that some friend, some 
member of his large family, or some 
policeman would not have said or done 
something to indicate that someone 


considered him mentally sick? 


Who is it that is so anxious to defend 
an obscure operator of a third-rate night 
club with the record Ruby is reported 
to have? 

An Associated Press story sum- 
marized the report of the FBI as con- 
cluding that "Lee Oswald was the 
solitary and unaided assassin and that 
]acl{ Ruby had no connection with Os- 
wald or his deadly plan." And, Victor 
Riesel reported that the White House 
was desperately "eager to avoid an 
international incident by appearing to 
give the slightest insinuation of an 
international plot to assassinate John 

It appears fantastic that this operator 
of a cheap night club would receive aid 
from every influential source. I am now 
staring at the headline which appeared 
on the front page of the Houston 
Chronicle of January twenty-first. That 
headline reads, " 'Hero-minded' Ruby 
awaits word on Bail." Another story 
says he cried. Still another reports that 
when he was interviewed on television 
he "broke down" when he spoke of 
President Kennedy. We are told by 
his friends, and some members of his 
family, of his great emotional upheaval 
when he learned of the President's 

At first the defense fed the propa- 
ganda mills the story that his "great 
devotion" to the President produced 
temporary insanity which was respon- 
sible for his act. This "Une" became 
ridiculous in the light of the revelation 
that he did not view the cavalcade, nor 
pay his poll tax, and that he loitered 
around the jail with a gun from the 
time Oswald was imprisoned until he 
had an opportunity to shoot Oswald. 
The "temporary insanity" lasted too 

Of course Jack Rubenstein should 
not be tried in the Press or by anyone

who must rely upon Press stories. That 
is not the American way. But when a 
well-organized campaign, evidently 
supplied with ample money, is con- 
ducted to brainwash the American 
people in advance of the trial we have 
a duty to raise these honest questions. 


I KNOW THAT the great majority of 
our people do not realize that there is, 
and has been since the organization of 
the Communist Party, a gravely men- 
acing and remarkably successful Com- 
munist Conspiracy — in the United 
States and throughout the world. 
Despite more than twenty years of in- 
vestigation and the exposures of the 
Committee on Un-American Activities, 
the Internal Security Sub-Committee of 
the Senate, and the vast quantity of 
literature including the various public 
statements of FBI Chief J. Edgar 
Hoover, our people still do not under- 
stand or believe that there is a sinister 
conspiracy seeking the overthrow of 
our country. 

' One major reason is because few 
people will read or heed the warnings 
of the Red menace. 

Another reason is that revelations 
about this conspiracy are fantastic to the 
Western mind. Many people stooped 
to laugh about serious findings of the 
Dies Committee. Unfortunately, the 
media of information in this country 
have too many times discredited grave 
and truthful revelations as a "publicity 
stunt." And this general disbelief, care- 
fully and shrewdly encouraged by the 
Communists, has greatly facilitated 

■ their conquest of one-third of the 
world's population. But I have listened 
to the testimony of many credible 
former Communists, including the man 
who was in charge of their espionage 
for Western Europe (who himself died 

'in a Washington hotel under mys- 
terious circumstances) and I have 
helped uncover Communist crimes; and

from all this experience, study, and 
observation I can often recognize the 
"fine hand" of the Communist Con- 

If the newspaper reports from which 
I quote in this and the succeeding 
article are correct, certain conclusions 
are inescapable. Since these conclusions 
are based upon newspaper and television 
reports, I do not of course pretend that 
they are in any sense final. If all of the 
sworn evidence available is received 
and released uncensored and undoc- 
tored by the Warren commission, it 
could render my conclusions incorrect. 
But my long study, investigation, and 
observation of the modus operandi of 
the Communist Conspiracy leads mc 
to certain tentative conclusions. 

On the basis of what has been re- 
ported by reliable and trustworthy 
reporters, I believe that Oswald was 
acting under instructions which had 
their original source in Moscow, proba- 
bly relayed through Castro. How Os- 
wald received these instructions I do 
not know. He may have gotten them

when he went to Mexico City ostensibly 
to apply for a visa to Russia by way of 
Cuba, or he may have gone to Mexico 
City to arrange for his escape after the 
murder of the President. He may have 
received his orders through one of the 
numerous Communist couriers who 
enter and leave this country at will. 

I believe that the reason Oswald was 
not granted citizenship, which would 
have been of great propaganda value to 
the Communists, v/as because he was of 
far greater value to the Communists as 
an American citizen than as a Soviet 
citizen. In permitting him to marry a 
Russian girl, to travel freely in Russia, 
a'^d to be issued a work permit, the 
Communists obviously realized that 
they could use him for some purpose. 
He may have been analyzed as useful up 
to a point. I have seen cards the Com- 
munists kept of fellow travelers: Each 
fellow traveler was carefully studied 
and tried and his value to the cause 
stated on the card. 

I believe that Oswald was acting in 
accordance with the carefully con- 
sidered plans of the most successful 
conspirators the world has ever seen. 
Those plans included a method of 
escape. What it was may never be 
discovered. It may well have been that 
the plan included the liquidation of 
Oswald. Of course this part of the plan 
would have been unknown to him. But 
if the Communists believed that Oswald 
would talk under strong pressure the 
plan certainly included his death. 

One thing is certain — the murder 
of the officer was not planned. Com- 
munists, the same as the criminal 
underworld, forbid the slaying of 

policeme"^. under such circumstances 
because they know that the chances of 
apprehension are grealy increased. A 
police force cannot let the murder of a 
policeman escape detection and punish- 
ment because all policemen would be 
in greater jeopardy. It may be, there- 
fore, that the murder of this policeman 
by Oswald was his death knell. No 
Communist is ever permitted to disobey 
an order or -ignore any detail of his 

As to the reason Moscow and Castro 
wanted the liquidation of President 
Kennedy, no one will ever know. Of 
one thing we may be certain: The 
reason, to the Communists, was urgent. 
Further speculation is idle. 

In my opinion it is unlikely that the 
Communist conspiracy
