(Testimony of Vance Blalock)

Mr. Liebeler.
You must have talked to Philip about Oswald after the assassination.
Mr. Blalock.
Mr. Liebeler.
Did you recall to each other and discuss with each other the meeting that you had with Oswald in the store on Decatur Street at that time?
Mr. Blalock.
I think I was the one that recognized him. I called it to Philip's attention, and the next day at school he said, "Yes, that is the man we met at the store." I recognized Oswald late one night when I was just about going to bed. I told my Daddy, "I went uptown and met that man up there."
Mr. Liebeler.
This was shortly after the assassination?
Mr. Blalock.
Yes; during the time they didn't have any shows but the funeral and----
Mr. Liebeler.
[Exhibiting photograph to witness.] Let me show you a picture that has been marked as Exhibit I to the affidavit of Jesse J. Garner taken at New Orleans, April 6, 1964, and I ask you if you recognize the individual portrayed in that picture.
Mr. Blalock.
Yes, sir; I recognize him.
Mr. Liebeler.
And do you recognize him as the man you met in the store that day?
Mr. Blalock.
Yes, sir; Lee Harvey Oswald.
Mr. Liebeler.
Can you think of anything else now about your contact with Oswald, or can you think of anything else that you know about him that I haven't asked you about and you think the Commission should know about?
Mr. Blalock.
I can't think of anything else.
Mr. Liebeler.
I don't have any other questions. If you can't think of anything else, we will terminate the deposition. On behalf of the Commission, I want to thank you very much.

Mr. Rankin.
Mr. Lee, this deposition is being taken by the Commission under the authority of Executive Order No. 11130 and joint resolution of the Congress No. 137. My name is J. Lee Rankin. I am general counsel for the Commission. Mr. Liebeler is associated with me in this work. You have a right to have a copy of your testimony if you wish to pay for it and you may ask the reporters to make such arrangements.
During the examination you have a right to have counsel, which you have here, and counsel may object to any of the questions. At the close of the examination by myself, if counsel wishes to ask you questions to clarify or make clear any particular part of your testimony or correct it, if you wish to call anything to his attention, why, he is free to do that. Where do you live, Mr. Lee?
Mr. Lee.
37 1/2 St. Mark's Place, New York City.
Mr. Rankin.
You are entitled under the rules of the Commission to 3 days' notice, and I assume since you are here you are willing to waive that and go ahead with the deposition.
Mr. Lee.
Mr. Rankin.
Do you have an official connection with the Fair Play for Cuba Committee?
Mr. Lee.
The Fair Play for Cuba Committee is no longer a functioning organization.
