(Testimony of Wilma May Tice)

Mrs. Tice.
brought them home and was Just coming in whenever I signed for the letter, and the postman handed me the letter when he walked up to the door.
Mr. Griffin.
When did you receive the telephone call?
Mrs. Tice.
Well, now, I think it was Monday or Tuesday; but I have been so confused because I was up all day and all that night and the next day, and some of the FBI and some of the police said it was Wednesday, but I believe it was Monday.
Mr. Griffin.
Did your husband, when you got that letter from the President's Commission, ask you why you were supposed to testify?
Mrs. Tice.
Yes; he did.
Mr. Griffin.
Did you tell him?
Mrs. Tice.
No; he accused me of having worked for Jack Ruby at one time. He says, "I know you have known him before. You probably worked for him before you and I were married." And he is so unreasonable, and he is just--my husband is kind of jealous, and you can't hardly talk to him. So I just figured, well, I wouldn't say anything to him, because he just goes into a rage.
Mr. Griffin.
Well, I don't have any other questions of you and I appreciate your coming here. I don't know whether you have anything more that you would want to add. I think you probably told us everything there is to tell us.
Mrs. Tice.
Well, that is all I know. And as far as the phone calls, the rest of them didn't say anything. They just hung up.
Mr. Griffin.
Did you get more than one phone call?
Mrs. Tice.
Yes, Sir; I got several phone calls that were just--whenever I wouldn't answer the phone any more, and our little niece had been there, and she is 14 and I would tell her to answer the telephone, and she answered the. telephone, and they would hang up.
Mr. Griffin.
Well, I want to thank you again very much for coming. I hope we haven't inconvenienced you any further.

Wanda Yvonne Helmick

Testimony of Wanda Yvonne Helmick

The testimony of Wanda Yvonne Helmick was taken at 4 p.m., on July 24, 1964, in the office of the U.S. attorney, 301 Post Office Building, Bryan and Ervay Streets, Dallas, Tex, by Mr. Burt W. Griffin, assistant counsel of the President's Commission.
Mr. Griffin.
Let me introduce myself again. I am Burt Griffin, and I am a member of the general counsel's staff of the President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy.
It is our practice to have a few preliminaries here in which I explain to you what the Commission is all about, and what we are going to do. Then we will administer the oath and I will talk to you.
This President's Commission, as you probably know, was set up in November 1963, as a result of an Executive order of President Johnson and the joint resolution of Congress, and under these two official acts, we have been directed to investigate and to evaluate and report back to President Johnson on all the facts that relate to the assassination of President Kennedy and the death of Lee Oswald.
We have asked you to come here today because I understand you have some information that might pertain to Jack Ruby.
Now, under the rules and regulations of the Commission, I have been designated to take your testimony, and I might tell you t.hat the rules do provide that before you are asked to testify, you shall receive 3 days' notice in writing in advance before you come here.
I will ask you right now if you received a letter from us and when you did receive it.
Mrs. Helmick.
I received it yesterday.
