(Testimony of Capt. Maurice Solomon James)

Mr. Hubert.
Captain, do you know anything about this matter other than what we have talked about, that you would like to put into the record, sir?
Mr. Solomon.
No, sir; I do not.
Mr. Hubert.
All right. Now, have you been interviewed by any member of the Commission staff?
Mr. Solomon.
No.
Mr. Hubert.
As a matter of fact, before the commencement of this deposition, I did not interview you?
Mr. Solomon.
No.
Mr. Hubert.
I think, Captain, that I mentioned the word "pistol" a moment ago in connection with arming of the reserves?
Mr. Solomon.
Did you? I didn't recall it.
Mr. Hubert.
You indicated to me that actually these men are not armed with firearms ?
Mr. Solomon.
No; they are not armed. Would you Want to make part--this part of the record? This is what I call an information sheet about what the reserve is. A lot of times a citizen calls me and wants to know something
about it, and I mail them that. ( Hands to Mr. Hubert. )
Mr. Hubert.
All right. I will accept this. I will mark on the front page, "Dallas, Tex., March 26, 1964, Exhibit 5107." You call that a brochure?
Mr. Solomon.
I call it an information sheet. We generally refer to it as a poop sheet.
Mr. Hubert.
I am writing on this sheet, "Exhibit 5107, deposition of Capt. J. M. Solomon." I am signing my name, and for identification, if you will sign yours?
Mr. Solomon.
Yes. That just gives a little more detail than what I told you about it, and I had forgotten that. That might be important that they are not armed. That is why we don't let them work in any capacity unless they are in the company of an officer.
Mr. Hubert.
On the day in question, to wit, the 24th of November 1963, the reserve officers were in uniform but of course not armed ?
Mr. Solomon.
That's right.
Mr. Hubert.
I notice that this Exhibit 5107 contains information about the minimum standards that are required?
Mr. Solomon.
Yes.
Mr. Hubert.
For admission and maintaining the status of a reserve officer, is that correct?
Mr. Solomon.
Yes.
Mr. Hubert.
Can you state that these minimum standards are in force?
Mr. Solomon.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
One other question. Can you state that the reserve officers that were on duty on the 24th did meet these minimum standards?
Mr. Solomon.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
Do you have anything else to say?
Mr. Solomon.
Well, I don't suppose you want to know that we had some on duty during the Presidential Parade? Is that important?
Mr. Hubert.
It might be in another aspect of the matter, but the one I am inquiring about, it is not. However, I am sure that the information that you have given me, generally speaking, should be made a part of the record, and
that is why I have done that. Thank you very much, sir.
Mr. Solomon.
You are so welcome.
Mr. Hubert.
I appreciate your coming down.
Mr. Solomon.
All right. Thank you very much, sir.
