(Testimony of John Edward Pic)


Unfortunately, Mr. Pic, this application, for some reason by oversight was not signed by your mother. Do you remember a pastor by the name of Rev. J. H. Nau?
Mr. Pic.
No, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
At the Redeemer Lutheran Church?
Mr. Pic.
No, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
By the way, Mr. Reporter, for purposes of the record, there appears on this application the fact that the marriage of Sergeant Pic's mother Marguerite and his father Edward John Pic, Jr. was at Gulfport, La.
Mr. Pic.
Mississippi.
Mr. Jenner.
No, it says Gulfport, La. here and should have been Gulfport, Miss.?
Mr. Pic.
Yes; Mississippi.
Mr. Jenner.
Do you remember a pastor by the name of Reverend Scherer?
Mr. Pic.
No, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
The Trinity Evangelical Church.
Mr. Pic.
No, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
Do you remember a Rev. M. R. Lecron?
Mr. Pic.
No, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
Of the Redeemer Church?
Mr. Pic.
No, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
By the way, all you boys were christened in the Lutheran church, faith, were you not?
Mr. Pic.
I don't know or remember if Lee was. I don't know about Lee.
Mr. Jenner.
The record of the Bethlehem Children's Home show that he was baptised by the Rev. M. R. Lecron of the Redeemer Lutheran Church. The exact date, however, is not given.
Mr. Pic.
They even have his birthday wrong there.
Mr. Jenner.
1 day. They have it as the 19th whereas it was 18th. As a matter of fact, your mother on one of her papers fixes it on the 19th.
Mr. Pic.
So does one of the letters.
Mr. Jenner.
I offer John Pic Exhibit No. 5 in evidence.
(John Pic Exhibit No. 5 was marked for identification.)
Mr. Jenner.
We will adjourn now and reconvene at 3 o'clock.
(Whereupon, at 12:25 p.m., the proceeding was recessed.)

Testimony of John Edward Pic Resumed

Mr. Jenner.
The proceeding was reconvened at 3:25 p.m.
Mr. Jenner.
All right, Sergeant.
Do you recall along about this time that you were in the Bethlehem Orphanage your mother became acquainted with a man by the name of E. A. Ekdahl and subsequently married?
Mr. Pic.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
And it was about this time, around 1944, that you boys were withdrawn from the Bethlehem Orphanage and taken to Texas?
Mr. Pic.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
Now, I will go back a little bit because I want you to put it in sequence. Before we adjourned for noon recess, I covered the matter of the period of the birth of Lee, the death of your stepfather Lee Oswald, and then brought you up to the Bethlehem School and stopped there.
To the extent you have impressions commencing with, let us say, your entry into grammar school, at that time your stepfather Lee Oswald was alive.
Mr. Pic.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
You were, when you entered grammar school that was kindergarten you were only four and half years old.
Mr. Pic.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
Do you recall moving from place to place before you finally settled in--
Mr. Pic.
I just remember one residence prior to Alvez and Galvez.
Mr. Jenner.
I see.
