(Affidavit of M. Waldo George)

Gray, called me and informed me that the man in the upstairs apartment was beating .his wife. I made no inquiry into this subject matter.
5. Two or three days later, myself and Mrs. George called on the Oswalds in their apartment and invited them to attend Gaston Avenue Baptist Church With us. He informed me and Mrs. George that he attended the Russian Orthodox Church although they were not regular in their attendance, because they had to depend on their friends to take them.
6. During this visit Oswald stated that he had met his wife while he was serving in the United States Marines as a guard at .the United States Embassy in Russia, and had married his wife in Russia. I made direct inquiry of him as to whether he had had any difficulty in getting out of Russia with his Wife and he said that he had had no difficulty whatsoever.
7. Neither myself or Mrs. George saw Oswald again at any time thereafter. Oswald did not pay rent for the succeeding rental period of May 2 through June 2, 1963. Because my attention was diverted by other matters, I did not go by the apartment to collect ,the rent for that period until several days after May 2, 1963. When I arrived at the apartment I found it vacant.
Signed this 12th day of June 1964 at Dallas Texas.

Testimony of William Kirk Stuckey

The testimony of William Kirk Stuckey was taken at 9:35 a.m., on June 6, 1964, at 200 Maryland Avenue NE, Washington, D.C., by Mr. Albert E. Jenner, Jr., assistant counsel of the President's Commission.
Mr. Jenner.
Do you solemnly swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, in your deposition which you are about to give?
Mr. Stuckey.
I do.
Mr. Jenner.
Be seated. State your full name?
Mr. Stuckey.
William Kirk Stuckey.
Mr. Jenner.
I regret, Mr. Stuckey, that we have to inconvenience you to have you back to have your deposition taken again. But through some happenstance in New Orleans, the transcript of your deposition never went beyond the U.S. attorney's office apparently, and. we appreciate your willingness to come up here and be with us today so that I can depose you again. When I took your deposition before you had received a letter from Mr. Rankin, had you not?
Mr. Stuckey.
Mr. Jenner.
I guess I called you when I was down there, didn't I?
Mr. Stuckey.
Yes; that is correct.
Mr. Jenner.
And I explained to you at that time, the time before when I took your deposition, however, the legislation under which the Commission was authorized and the Executive order of the President creating the Commission and the rules and regulations of the Commission on the taking of depositions?
Mr. Stuckey.
Yes; I understand that.
Mr. Jenner.
Thank you. In effect, we want to inquire of you in particular with respect to the course of events in which you interviewed Lee Harvey Oswald while he was in New Orleans in 1963 at some radio broadcasts which you, in your professional capacity, that is, your professional business, had organized, had put on, and you had some fairly extended acquaintance with Oswald in a professional sense.
Mr. Stuckey.
Yes. Would you like me. to tell you from the very first?
Mr. Jenner.
Well, I think for the very first, for the purpose of the record, identify yourself, who you were then and who you are now, and your profession and business and associations.
Mr. Stuckey.
Fine. At present I am employed at Tulane University as a special writer. In this capacity I write a syndicated column on higher education which Tulane distributes to 85 newspapers throughout the country. In August 1963 I was a broadcaster with WDSU Radio, New Orleans. This is
