(Testimony of Michael Ralph Paine)

Mr. Paine.
women or even a sensual enjoyment of women would be a form of life that would be contradictory to his ethics.
Mr. LIEBELER. You had no idea that he had been engaged in the Fair Play for Cuba activities while he was in New Orleans?
Mr. Paine.
No; I did not.
Mr. Liebeler.
Did you ever talk to Ruth about Oswald's employment situation in New Orleans?
Mr. Paine.
Not that I can recall--no.. I think I asked her what kind of a job he had found, and that was the extent of it.
Mr. Liebeler.
What did she tell you he had found?
Mr. Paine.
She said he had found the same kind of work he left here--the engraving business--or something like that.
Mr. Liebeler.
Do you remember Ruth ever mentioning that Oswald had said that he had gotten fired from his job in New Orleans because of his activities in the Fair Play for Cuba Committee?
Mr. Paine.
No; I don't remember her mentioning that.
Mr. Liebeler.
I don't think I have any more questions. Thank you very much for coming.
Mr. Paine.
All right.


Maj. Gen. Edwin A. Walker and Gen. Clyde J. Watts

Testimony of Maj. Gen. Edwin A. Walker

Maj. Gen. Edwin A. Walker

The testimony of Maj. Gen. Edwin A. Walker was taken at 4:15 p.m., on July 23, 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.
Let the record indicate that General Walker is being represented by Clyde J. Watts of Oklahoma City.
Would you rise, general, and raise your right hand? 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?
General WALKER. I do.
Mr. Liebeler.
Please sit down. My name is Wesley J. Liebeler. I am an attorney on the President's Commission investigating the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. I have been authorized to take your testimony by the Commission pursuant to authority granted to the Commission by President Johnson's Executive Order No. 11130, dated November 29, 1963, and the joint resolution of Congress No. 137.
Pursuant to the Commission's rules of procedure, you are entitled to be represented by counsel. As the record now indicates, you are represented by counsel, General Watts. I understand that you are appearing voluntarily before the Commission in response to its request to give testimony touching upon certain matters relating to Lee Harvey Oswald and to the assassination of President Kennedy. Is that correct?
General WALKER. That is correct
Mr. Liebeler.
I would like to have the record show that prior to the commencement of this deposition, a discussion between General Watts and General Walker and myself was had in which we reached an agreement under which a copy of the transcript of the testimony which will be taken here today will be made available here at the office of the U.S. attorney for examination by General Walker and by his counsel. They will be given an opportunity to make whatever changes in the testimony may be necessary, so that the transcript reflects accurately what happened here today.
We also agreed and confirmed in a telephone conversation with Mr. Rankin, the general counsel for the Commission, that as soon as a copy can reasonably be made available, within 2 or 3 days after this transcript has been signed by General Walker and approved by me, a copy of the transcript will be made available to General Walker at his expense. It may be purchased from the court reporter here in Dallas. We will make whatever arrangements may seem
