(Testimony of Sheriff J. E. (Bill) Decker)

There may be some others--I can send those to you anywhere-Washington or anywhere, it makes no difference, or I can send them up here to you in the next 45 minutes after I leave here.

Mr. Hubert.
After lunch will be all right.
Mr. Decker.
Fine, I will send them up.
Mr. Hubert.
I will just attach them to this exhibit.
Mr. Decker.
That's all right--they belong in there and I don't know how they got out, but in comparing them, making a new one up, you lose some once in a while--as much paperwork as we do in law enforcement fields this day and time, you lose a heck of a lot of it.
Mr. Hubert.
Now, Sheriff Decker, has any member of the Commission's staff interviewed you other than myself?
Mr. Decker.
No, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
Have you anything further you wish to add?
Mr. Decker.
I don't know why I should take any more of your time. You have practically everything I have that is of value to you. If there is anything further you want--we are available and you have a big job to do
Mr. Hubert.
Well, that's all right--that's what I'm here for.
Mr. Decker.
I know that.
Mr. Hubert.
But if we know all that you know, then that's all right.
Mr. Decker.
That's right--so, there is no reason of going over it.
Mr. Hubert.
Is it your thought that considering your testimony here today and what you have told the FBI and your records--
Mr. Decker.
And my records that I have given to you---turned over to you and what my other deputies have given to you, I don't know of any reason to take up any more of your time, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
All right, thank you very much.
Mr. Decker.
I will be delighted to have you come and see my operation before you leave and it might clear up some things there for you.
Mr. Hubert.
All right, thank you.
Mr. Decker.
Thank you.
