(Testimony of Robert Edward Oswald Lee Resumed)

Mr. Dulles.
I wonder if to save time we could ask him to review that memorandum and to report if he finds that there are other calls that were made.
Mr. Jenner.
Will that be acceptable to you Mr. McKenzie?
Mr. Mckenzie.
Fine.
Mr. Dulles, it is a quarter of one. Being as how it is a quarter of one, I know you have a luncheon meeting to go to. Our plane does not leave until 5 o'clock. We have to leave here no later than 3:30. We will be glad to have lunch and come back, if it would suit your convenience.
Mr. Jenner.
There are a couple of things, in the interests really of Mr. Oswald, that have turned up, when I studied the memorandum last night, that I am sure Mr. McKenzie would like to have.
Mr. Dulles.
Yes; I would like to give Mr. McKenzie plenty of time.
If the car is there, I can wait another 5 or 10 minutes. But I think that it would be better if I were to come back.
We will recess at this time until 2 p.m.
(Whereupon, at 12:45 p.m., the President's Commission recessed.)
Mr. Dulles.
Afternoon Session

Testimony of Robert Edward Oswald Lee Resumed

Mr. Dulles.
The President's Commission reconvened at 2 :30 p.m.
Mr. Dulles.
The Commission will come to order.
Mr. Jenner.
Returning to page 1 of your memorandum, as I recall your recording of the events of that day, November 22, 1963, you first learned of the assassination or attempted assassination as of that moment of President Kennedy while you were at lunch with some fellow workers.
Mr. Oswald.
That is correct.
Mr. Jenner.
And would you identify those fellow workers, please?
Mr. Oswald.
If I might----
Mr. Mckenzie.
I ask you to withdraw that.
Mr. Jenner.
All right. You don't like the expression "fellow workers"?
Mr. Dulles.
You object to the whole question, or just the way it was phrased?
Mr. Mckenzie.
Let's rephrase it, Mr. Dulles, if I may, please.
Mr. Jenner.
I will yield to you, Mr. McKenzie. Fellow employees.
Mr. Mckenzie.
That is fine.
Mr. Jenner.
You were at lunch with fellow employees of Acme Brick Co.?
Mr. Oswald.
That is correct.
Mr. Jenner.
Would you please identify those gentlemen?
Mr. Oswald.
They are Mr. Bill Darwin, the director of marketing of the Acme Brick Co., Mr. Burnett Henry, director of plants and transportation of the Acme Brick Co., Mr. Bob Oech, who is the Texas division plant manager.
Mr. Jenner.
Acme Brick Co.?
Mr. Oswald.
Of Acme Brick Co.
And Mr. Bud Adams, who is the plant manager of both the old and new Denton plants.
Mr. Jenner.
And it was at this time and on this occasion at lunchtime that you first heard any intimation or otherwise of the assassination or attempted assassination of President Kennedy?
Mr. Oswald.
Yes, sir. At the completion of our lunch, as we were departing from the restaurant, as noted in my memorandum, page 1.
Mr. Jenner.
Now, you speak on that page of driving in an automobile, either all or some of you gentlemen.
Whose automobile was that?
Mr. Oswald.
All of us were in one automobile, and we were in Mr. Burnett Henry's automobile.
Mr. Jenner.
And I take it--did the automobile have a radio in it?
Mr. Oswald.
Yes, sir; it did.
