Mr. Liebeler.
Would you please rise, I will swear you as a witness.

Yes, sir.
Mr. Liebeler.
Please be seated. My name is Wesley J. Liebeler. I am a member of the legal staff of the President's Commission investigating the assassination of President Kennedy. Staff members have been authorized to take testimony of witnesses by the Commission pursuant to authority granted to it by Executive Order No. 11130 dated November 29, 1963, and joint resolution of Congress No. 137. The Commission has adopted rules of procedure in conformance with the Executive order and the Joint resolution. I understand that Mr. Rankin. the general counsel to the Commission, wrote you a letter last week and told you that I would contact you to take your testimony this week. He sent with that letter, I understand, a copy of that Executive order and joint resolution together with a copy of the rules of procedure adopted by the Commission for the

taking of testimony of witnesses. You received that letter?
Mr. Ryder.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Liebeler.
And copies of the papers I referred to?
Mr. Ryder.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Liebeler.
Today we want to examine you briefly concerning the possibility that you did some work on a rifle for a man by the name of Oswald who may in fact have been Lee Harvey Oswald. Before we get into that, we would like to have you state your full name for the court reporter.
Mr. Ryder.
