Testimony of Jimmy Turner

The testimony of Jimmy Turner was taken at 9:45 a.m., on March 25, 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.
All right, this is the deposition of Mr. James Turner.
Mr. Turner.
Jimmy Turner.
Mr. Hubert.
Jimmy Turner. Fort Worth, Tex. Mr. Turner, my name is Leon D. 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 the President's Executive Order No. 11130, dated November 29, 1963, the Joint Resolution of Congress No. 137 and rules of civil procedure adopted by the Commission in conference with the Executive order and the joint resolution, I have been authorized to take a sworn deposition from you, Mr. Turner.
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 to the subsequent violent death of Lee Harvey Oswald. In particular to you, Mr. Turner, the nature of the inquiry today is to determine what perhaps you know about the death of Oswald and any other pertinent facts you may know about the general inquiry. Now, I think you have appeared here today as the result of the receipt of a letter from Mr. Rankin.
Mr. Turner.
That's right, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
When did you get that letter?
Mr. Turner.
It arrived last Monday, which was the 22d of March.
Mr. Hubert.
Now, under the rules of the Commission, you are entitled to a 3-day notice prior to the taking of this deposition. That probably dates from the day the letter was sent, which would be over 3 days, but just to be certain, the rules also provide that you can waive the 3 days on this if you want to. Are you willing to testify now, or do you want to wait until the 3 days have passed?
Mr. Turner.
Well, I might as well, now that I am here.
Mr. Hubert.
Well, you do waive the 3-day notice?
Mr. Turner.
I certainly do.
Mr. Hubert.
Then will you stand and raise your right hand and be sworn.
Do you solemnly swear to ten the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
Mr. Turner.
I do.
Mr. Hubert.
Will you please state your name?
Mr. Turner.
Jimmy Turner.
Mr. Hubert.
The name "Jimmy," is your correct name? It is not "James"?
Mr. Turner.
That's right, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
Where do you reside?
Mr. Turner.
3637 Norma Street in Fort Worth, Tex.
Mr. Hubert.
What is your age, please?
Mr. Turner.
I am 38, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
What is your employment?
Mr. Turner.
I am TV director at WBAP-TV at Fort Worth.
Mr. Hubert.
How long have you been so employed?
