(Testimony of Roy Eugene Vaughn)

Mr. Vaughn.
don't know how they would specify a large crowd--I said I suppose it was probably half a dozen people standing outside the ramp.
Mr. Hubert.
So, you wish to correct that?
Mr. Vaughn.
I want to change the large---from large to that.
Mr. Hubert.
You wish to change "large crowd at 11 a.m." to "about half a dozen people" ?
Mr. Vaughn.
Mr. Hubert.
Were there any other corrections or modifications on that document?
Mr. Vaughn.
No, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
You have read it through and you believe it correctly represents the content and substance of the interview?
Mr. Vaughn.
Mr. Hubert.
Now; I ask you whether you have any comments or changes or corrections with reference to the FBI report which has been identified as Exhibit 5336?
Mr. Vaughn.
No; that's correct.
Mr. Hubert.
That's correct altogether?
Mr. Vaughn.
That's correct.
Mr. Hubert.
Mr. Vaughn, Would you be willing to state that if a person were to read the three reports that we have identified as Exhibits 5334, 5335, and 5336, and if he were to read your deposition here, that he would have the truth so far as you know?
Mr. Vaughn.
Yes, sir; I would.
Mr. Hubert.
Now, have you ever been interviewed by any other member of the Commission staff?
Mr. Vaughn.
No, sir; I have not.
Mr. Hubert.
Thank you, sir.
Mr. Vaughn.
All right. Thank you.

Detective James C. Watson

Testimony of Detective C. Watson James

The testimony of Detective James C. Watson was taken at 10 a.m., on March 26, 1964, in the office of the U.S. attorney, 301 Post Office Building, Bryan and Ervay Streets, Dallas, Tex., by Mr. Leon D. Hubert, Jr., assistant counsel of the President's Commission.
Mr. Hubert.
This is the deposition of James C. Watson of the Dallas Police Department. Mr. Watson, my name is Leon Hubert. I am a member of the advisory staff of the general counsel of the President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy.
Under the provisions of President Johnson's Executive Order 11130, dated November 29, 1963, a joint resolution of Congress 137 and rules of procedure adopted by the Commission in conformance with the Executive order and the joint resolution I have been authorized to take a sworn deposition from you, Mr. Watson. I state to you that the general nature of the Commission's inquiry is to ascertain, evaluate and report upon the facts relating to the assassination of President Kennedy and subsequent violent death of Lee Harvey Oswald. And in particular, as to you, Mr. Watson, 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. Now, Mr. Watson, you have appeared here today by virtue of a general request made to Chief Curry by Mr. J. Lee Rankin, who is the general counsel on the Staff of the President's Commission. Under the rules adopted by the Commission you are entitled to a 3-day written notice prior to the taking of this deposition, and the rules also provide that a witness may waive his 3-day written notice and I will ask you now if you are willing to waive the notice ?
Mr. Watson.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
Will you please stand and raise your right hand and be sworn?
