Mr. Hubert.
Mr. Vaughn, my name is Leon Hubert. I'm a member of the advisory staff of the general counsel of the President's Commission. Under the provisions of Executive Order 11130, dated November 29, 1963, and the joint resolution of Congress No.. 137, and the rules of procedure adopted by the Commission in conformance with the Executive order and joint resolution, I have been authorized to take a sworn statement from you.
I state to you now that the general nature of the Commission's inquiry is to ascertain, evaluate, and report upon facts relating to the assassination of President Kennedy and the subsequent violent death of Lee Harvey Oswald.

,In particular to you, Mr. Vaughn, the nature of the inquiry today is to determine what facts you know about the death of Oswald and any other pertinent facts you may know about the general inquiry, and more particularly about the entry or possible entry of Ruby into the basement through the Main Street ramp. Did you get a letter directed to you?
Mr. Vaughn.
To appear here?
Mr. Hubert.
Yes.
Mr. Vaughn.

Mr. Vaughn.
Yes.
Mr. Hubert.
Was that letter received by you more than 3 days from this day?
Mr. Vaughn.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
Will you rise and take the oath?
Do you solemnly swear the testimony you are about to give will be the the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
Mr. Vaughn.
I do.
Mr. Hubert.
Will you state your name ?
Mr. Vaughn.

Almost 6 years.
Mr. Hubert.
What rank or rating do you hold now ?

Mr. Hubert.
You were on duty at the police department on Sunday, November 24.
Mr. Vaughn.
That's correct.

I'd say at approximately 9 a.m. we got a call to call the patrol office.
Mr. Hubert.
You mean your normal station was not at headquarters?
Mr. Vaughn.
Oh, no, sir.

At this particular month, being the month we worked days, and I work relief--I don't work any certain district--and I work just more or less wherever I am needed.
Mr. Hubert.
So, they let you know at your home in some way?
Mr. Vaughn.
No, sir: I had already reported for work. I was working with squad 105 that particular morning, which is in the downtown area.
Mr. Hubert.
That's a patrol car?
