(Testimony of A. C. Johnson)

Mr. Johnson.
No; because I didn't see, him that day.
Mr. Belin.
You didn't see him that day. Well, on any day--for instance, here's another exhibit here kind of a. dark blue-jacket-- Exhibit 163. Have you ever seen Oswald wearing Exhibit No. 163?
Mr. Johnson.
I couldn't say.
Mr. Belin.
Well, we certainly thank you, Mr. Johnson, for all of your cooperation. I know this has been time consuming on your part here?
Mr. Johnson.
Well, we've always tried to cooperate because. you know they've brought so much publicity down on us there and we've kinda felt bad about it. So we've just thought the thing. out and thought that it could happen to anybody that deals with the public, you know--rents rooms or anything.
Mr. Belin.
By the way--I don't know if I asked you. You can sign the deposition or you can waive the signing of it and just have the court reporter record it as she has it recorded here.
Do you want to sign it or do you just want to waive the signing of it?
Mr. Johnson.
Well, it doesn't make any difference because it's----
Mr. Belin.
Well, if it doesn't make any difference to you, will you just then waive the signing of it and save your coming down the second time here?
Mr. Belin.
Well, we want you to know that .we appreciate the fact that you've had people in and out of your house and everything else.
Mr. Johnson.
We're glad to help in any way we can, you know.
Mr. Belin.
By the way, I might .ask you one question that we forgot. When the police first came on November 22, did they have a search warrant at all or not? Or don't you remember?
Mr. Johnson.
Uh--they didn't have one at the time; but they called and got one before they went into his room.
Mr. Belin.
They called and got a search warrant before they went in his room?
Mr. Johnson.
Yes. They called over my phone.
Mr. Belin.
Over your phone? You heard them call?
Mr. Belin.
All right. I believe 'that's 'all. Thank you very much, sir.

Mr. Jenner.
Would you rise and take the oath, please?
Mr. Jenner.
Do you swear in your testimony to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth?
Mr. Shasteen.
I do. Now, I want to tell you before I start--there is some question---I just have to go back from memory.
Mr. Jenner.
That's all right. All we mean when we say "the truth" is just to the best of your ability.
Mr. Shasteen.
When I ever talked to him, I never dreamed I would ever see him again--you see?
Mr. Jenner.
Sure. Did you receive a letter from Mr. Rankin; the General Counsel of the Commission?
Mr. Shasteen.
No; the chief of police came out yesterday afternoon. He's a good friend of mine. and he came out yesterday evening and had me to call----
Mr. Jenner.
The Secret Service--Mr. Sorrels?
