(Testimony of Capt. O. A. Jones)

Captain JONES. I don't know of any, sir.

Mr. Hubert.
I think that is all, sir. Captain, if you have anything else to say
Captain JONES. I will be happy--if there is anything that I can say that will shed some light on the truth, that's what I want, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
Is there anything at all that you haven't said to me, or during the interview, or during any statements that you may have made to anybody which you would like to say now ?
Captain JONES. I can think of none I got I told you the facts as I know them. The book that the Commission has, has a Copy of--has the conclusions that were reached by our Committee, and those are Just opinions based on our investigation of it and certainly we do have opinion on it but I have tried to stay away from my opinion, and--I will answer any questions in the future that you or any member of your Commission wants to know.
Mr. Hubert.
Thank you very much. Let me say that if you should think of anything that has been omitted please feel free to call upon me or any member of the Commission staff to convey that information. Once again I thank you personally and on behalf of the Commission.
Captain JONES. Thank you.
Mr. Hubert.
Just a moment.
( Discussion off the record. )
Mr. Hubert.
Let me say that I am recommencing this deposition about a minute after it finished. You are still under the same oath, of course, that you were before.
Captain JONES. Yes, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
I think that you did prepare, or it was prepared under your supervision, a chart, or diagram that showed the basement area, and by the use of circles and identifying code showed the positions of individuals.
Captain JONES. Yes, sir; that was prepared under my direction by an officer and places people who were not available to our office in this city, where they were placed by the statements, or statements of people who were nearby and said they were there. That was to the best of our ability to determine where they were at the time.
Mr. Hubert.
As I recall it, that was quite a large chart, wasn't it?
Captain JONES. The original that they made.
Mr. Hubert.
And it showed the positions of people like that by circles in which numbers were
Captain JONES. Were numbered.
Mr. Hubert.
And I think you used a color as well?
Captain JONES. Color to denote the occupation.
Mr. Hubert.
Whether reserve officers
Captain JONES. Designated from
Mr. Hubert.
Captain JONES. And those numbers applied to one other, then they applied to the number of the page in the book of the ones they took affidavits from.
Mr. Hubert.
That is to say that these circles with the number in it designating the position of a particular individual, that same number was used to identify his report?
Captain JONES. That's right.
Mr. Hubert.
In your security report?
Captain JONES. Yes, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
But note for the record: The report which Captain Jones is referring has been designated as Commission Report No. 81-A. This is a copy of that, isn't it?
Captain JONES. Yes, sir. That is it.
Mr. Hubert.
All right. So, that the chart really is an estimation based upon the persons involved, what they said themselves, and also as to what other people said as to where they were.
Captain JONES. Yes, sir; we were limited as to the miles and distances of contacting some of the witnesses.
Mr. Hubert.
Once again I thank you for appearing.

Lt. Jack Revill
