(Testimony of Warren E. Richey)

Mr. Hubert.
Was that an individual interview?
Mr. Richey.
Not in our case. We were all together in the studio of WBAP.
Mr. Hubert.
You weren't taken aside separately and individually?
Mr. Richey.
Not when the FBI talked to us.
Mr. Hubert.
Each of you gave your story and the FBI agents made notes?
Mr. Richey.
Mr. Hubert.
Did he ever ask you to check the notes or any draft?
Mr. Richey.
No, sir; I have never heard or seen them since.
Mr. Hubert.
You were on duty with the truck during the day of Saturday, November 23?
Mr. Richey.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
Would it be possible that the man you saw and identified as Jack Ruby would have been seen by you on the 23d rather than the 24th?
Mr. Richey.
No, sir; I don't recall seeing anyone that even looked like him on the 23d. That one morning is the only morning that I recall seeing anyone that even looked like him.
Mr. Hubert.
On the 24th, I think you testified the crowd had been moved over on the other side of the street?
Mr. Richey.
Mr. Hubert.
Had that been done on the 23d?
Mr. Richey.
No, sir; no one bothered. There weren't too many around on the 23d. Mostly newsmen was all that was around on the 23d. There wasn't any crowd, really, but they started congregating on Sunday morning on both sides of the ramp.
Mr. Hubert.
It Was after they had begun to congregate that you saw this man you have identified as Jack Ruby?
Mr. Richey.
Yes, sir; and then they moved the other people across, and I still saw him after they moved the other people across the street.
Mr. Hubert.
All right, sir. Thank you very much.

Malcolm R. Slaughter

Testimony of Malcolm R. Slaughter

The testimony of Malcolm R. Slaughter was taken at 7:30 p.m., on April 16, 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.
Mr. Slaughter, my name is Leon Hubert. I am a member of the advisory staff of the General Counsel of President Johnson's Commission On the Assassination of President Kennedy. Under the provisions of Executive Order 11130, dated November 29, 1963, and Joint Resolution of Congress No. 137, and the rules of procedure adopted by the Commission in accordance with the Executive order and the joint resolution of Congress, I have been authorized to take a sworn deposition from you.
I state to you now 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 the subsequent violent death of Lee Harvey Oswald. In particular as to you, Mr. Slaughter, the nature of the inquiry tonight is to determine what facts you know about the death of Oswald and any other perti nent facts you may know about the general inquiry, and particularly what you may know about Jack Ruby and his whereabouts and movements on Sunday, November 24.
Mr. Slaughter, normally the witnesses are required to come before the Commission by a written letter or notice in writing sent to them by a member of the Commission or the general counsel, Mr. J. Lee Rankin. I have such a letter in my possession, but we have been unable to get it to you on account of your work.
Mr. Slaughter.
I have the letter.
Mr. Hubert.
Did you get it over 3 days ago?
