(Testimony of Mrs. Bertha Cheek)

Mrs. Cheek.
I don't think so.
Mr. Griffin.
I did meet you out in the hallway?
Mrs. Cheek.
Yes, sir; I met you.
Mr. Griffin.
But I didn't ask you any questions?
Mrs. Cheek.
No; you didn't.
Mr. Griffin.
Now I will ask you this, too. Do you have any information that you consider to be of any importance in connection with what this Commission is doing, that you haven't provided us so far?
Mrs. Cheek.
I don't think I have any information at all that I could give you. If I had, I had already called someone and told you about it. If I had ever talked to anyone or anyone mentioned anything about this, I just, like my sister, if she got a letter through the mail, I said, "You call the FBI immediately and turn it in." "Turn everything in."
She would get letters through the mail from different people and the people would be coming out interviewing, and I said, "Call immediately and tell them,"
Mr. Griffin.
If anything comes to your attention----
Mrs. Cheek.
I Will call you and tell you, surely. I will try to be as helpful as I can be, because I don't understand it, like everyone else.
Mr. Griffin.
We certainly appreciate that, and we are trying to get as much as we can.
Mrs. Cheek.
I can't feature Ruby killing Oswald, and I can't feature the President being killed.
Mr. Griffin.
Well, you are not the only one.
Mrs. Cheek.
It shocked me.
Mr. Griffin.
Again, I want to thank you for coming down here. It has been a pleasure to meet you.
Mrs. Cheek.
It is a pleasure meeting you.

Testimony of Curtis Laverne Crafard

The testimony of Curtis LaVerne Crafard was taken at 9:05 a.m, on April 8, 1964, at 200 Maryland Avenue NE., Washington, D.C., by Messrs. Burr W. Griffin and Leon D. Hubert, Jr., assistant counsel of the President's Commission.
Mr. Hubert.
This is the deposition of Curtis LaVerne Crafard.
Mr. Crafard, my name is Leon Hubert. I am a member of the advisory staff of the President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy, and I have been authorized by the Commission in accordance with law and regulations to take a sworn deposition from you.
The general nature of the Commission's inquiry is to ascertain the facts relating to the assassination of President Kennedy and the subsequent violent death of Lee Harvey Oswald.
In particular as to you, Mr. Crafard, the nature of the inquiry is to determine what facts you know about the general inquiry, the death of Oswald and what you know about Jack Ruby.
Now, you have appeared-here today by virtue of a subpena dated April 3, 1964, and issued by the Commission to you to appear here in this building, room 400, Veterans of Foreign Wars Building, 200 Maryland Avenue NE., Washington, to be deposed.
When was this subpena served upon you?
Mr. Crafard.
Last Saturday.
Mr. Hubert.
I think that would have been the 4th.
Mr. Crafard.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
The 4th of April. Would you rise and be sworn, please?
Raise your right hand. Do you solemnly swear the testimony you are about to give will be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
Mr. Crafard.
I do.
