(Testimony of )

Mr. Mcmillon.
testify to this, that and the other, did you hear it?" It came up in a couple of days, but, as far as I know, I didn't sign an affidavit.
Mr. Griffin.
Did you testify at the trial?
Mr. Mcmillon.
Yes.
Mr. Griffin.
Did you testify about having heard this statement?
Mr. Mcmillon.
How he entered the basement?
Mr. Griffin.
Yes.
Mr. Mcmillon.
Okay. I believe you are going to be a little more briefed on it when you get the fourth report. It is covered.
Mr. Griffin.
All right.
Mr. Mcmillon.
There is four reports, he only has three, but anyway that is the statement that I made at this departmental investigation.
Mr. Griffin.
Let me hand you an exhibit marked 5015. That is something you prepared, diagram, Commerce, Main, Pearl, and Expressway. Would you sign that and date it? Let me hand you what has been marked as Exhibit 5020, which is a copy of a copy, which you provided us of your original hand-written statement of November 24 to Chief Curry. Would you look that over so you are certain that that is a true and accurate copy and then, if you feel it is true and accurate, would you sign it and date it? Would you prefer to do that out in the hall?
Mr. Mcmillon.
It won't be but just a minute here.
Mr. Griffin.
Okay.
Mr. Mcmillon.
Okay.
Mr. Griffin.
Listen, Tom. I appreciate your coming up here.

Mr. Hubert.
Mr. Sorrels, my name is Leon Hubert. I will be taking your deposition this afternoon, and so will Mr. Samuel Stern. We are both members of the advisory staff of the General Counsel of the President's Commission, that is to say Mr. Rankin.

Under the provisions of Executive Order 11130, dated November 29, 1963, the Joint Resolution of Congress, No. 137, and rules of procedure adopted by the Commission in conformance with that Executive order and that joint resolution, both Mr. Stern and I have been authorized to take a sworn deposition from you, Mr. Sorrels. Of course you will take an oath a little later on. Is it understood between us that this statement of my authority and of Mr. Stern's authority is sufficient to carry for both depositions--in other words, it will be really a continuation of the deposition by Mr. Stern on another area. Is that understood?
Mr. Sorrels.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
Is it understood also that the oath you are going to take will be applicable to the testimony elicited from you by me, as well as that elicited from you by Mr. Stern?
Mr. Sorrels.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Hubert.

In particular as to you, Mr. Sorrels, the nature of the inquiry today is to determine what facts you know about the death of Oswald and other pertinent facts which you may know about the general inquiry.
