(Testimony of Dial Duwayne Ryder Resumed)

Mr. Liebeler.
investigation that the FBI conducted and the questioning that we have done, that there was never any man in there by the name of Oswald with any gun at all?
Mr. Ryder.
Yeah--like I said--all I've got is that ticket with his name on it and the work being done.
Mr. Liebeler.
Well, at this point I think we might as well conclude the deposition. The Commission will take under advisement Mr. Schmidt's request to have a polygraph examination administered to him, and I am advised by one of the U.S. attorneys here that one of the other reporters over at the newspaper does remember the conversation and we will take his deposition tomorrow. If you want to have a polygraph examination administered to you, after reflecting on this, or if you have anything further to say about the whole thing, contact Miss Stroud here at the U.S. attorneys office, if you want to.
Mr. Ryder.
Okay. Is that all?
Mr. Liebeler.
Yes; that's all. Thanks a lot, Mr. Ryder.
