(Testimony of Gertrude Hunter)

Mr. Liebeler.
You don't think he resembles the man that was in the store?
Mrs. Hunter.
No; that's not him, and that's Mrs. Oswald. That may be a brother, but that's not him. I never did see his brother because I didn't watch none of that. I just didn't want to live with it.
Mr. Liebeler.
Now, I show you a picture that has been marked Garner Exhibit No. 1 and ask you if that looks like anybody you have ever seen before.
Mrs. Hunter.
Well, now, looking from up this way it could be--from here up--it could be.
Mr. Liebeler.
You think that that resembles the man who was in the store somewhat?
Mrs. Hunter.
I would say he's kind of built that way.
Mr. Liebeler.
What about Pizzo Exhibit No. 453-C, does that look like the man who was in the store?
Mrs. Hunter.
Well, it could look like him some, but he was not dressed that way.
Mr. Liebeler.
You are not sure that that was him?
Mrs. Hunter.
No; I wouldn't say it was with him dressed that way because I didn't have that much hankering to really tell what he really looked like and it has been so long since I've seen it on the television that I wouldn't guarantee that--not looking for nothing.
Mr. Liebeler.
All right, thank you very much. We will see you on Friday.


Edith Whitworth

Testimony of Edith Whitworth

The testimony of Edith Whitworth was taken at 5 p.m., on July 22, 1964, in the office of the U.S. attorney, 301 Post Office Building, Bryan and Ervay Streets, Dallas, Tex., by Mr. Wesley J. Liebeler, assistant counsel of the President's Commission.
Mr. Liebeler.
Would you stand and take the oath, please?
Do you solemnly swear that the testimony you are about to give will be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
Mrs. Whitworth.
I do.
Mr. Liebeler.
My name is Wesley J. Liebeler. I am an attorney on the staff of the President's Commission investigating the assassination of President Kennedy. I have been authorized to take your testimony by the Commission pursuant to authority granted to it by Executive Order No. 11130, dated November 29, 1963, and by joint resolution of Congress No. 137.
Under the Commission's rules relating to the taking of testimony by the Commission, you are entitled to have an attorney present at this or any other hearing at which you may appear before the Commission and you are entitled to 3-days' notice of your appearance here. You are also entitled to exercise the usual privileges with regard to self incrimination and so forth as far as not answering questions is concerned. I assume that since you are here without an attorney, that you do not wish to have your attorney present at the session. In fact, very few witnesses do have their attorneys present. Am I correct in that understanding?
Mrs. Whitworth.
Well, I assume that--I don't see any use of me having one.
Mr. Liebeler.
Would you state your name for the record?
Mrs. Whitworth.
My name is Edith Whitworth.
Mr. Liebeler.
Where do you live?
Mrs. Whitworth.
I live at 315 South Jefferson, Irving, Tex.
Mr. Liebeler.
And you are married; is that correct?
Mrs. Whitworth.
Mr. Liebeler.
How many children do you have?
Mrs. Whitworth.
I have two.
