(Testimony of Nancy Monnell Powell)

Mr. Griffin.
not, to her knowledge, a gambler, and to her knowledge, never associated with carnival people?"
Mrs. Powell.
Yes; because at one time he had invested in a carnival show. They asked me if I knew this Slayton, and I told him I thought I knew him. Down here it says I said that I believed Ruby formerly had an associate named Joe Slayton. They asked me if I knew Joe Slayton, and I said I thought I did, that I thought he was a partner or something at one time. I never knew Joe Slayton at all.
Mr. Griffin.
Let me ask you, then, if you don't have any other questions in that, to sign that.
Mrs. Powell.
I don't like the way they said that, "An acquaintance with an exotic dancer." Where do you want me to sign this?
Mr. Griffin.
Up at the top.
Mrs. Powell.
Right here?
Mr. Griffin.
Mrs. Powell.
Mr. Griffin.
I am going to hand you what I have marked as Nancy Powell Deposition, July 25, 1964, Exhibit No. 3. That is a 3-page document which is a report of an interview that two FBI agents, Gary K. Wilson and Joseph G. Peggs, had with you on November 24 in Dallas.
Mrs. Powell.
I sure wish I had a cigarette. I didn't know really I was going to be up here 10 hours. Very well, where do you want me to sign this?
Mr. Griffin.
Sign on the first page at the top.
Mrs. Powell.
(signs name).
Mr. Griffin.
Would you initial each of the other pages?
Mrs. Powell.
Mr. Griffin.
Okay. Do you have any questions, Tammi?
Mrs. Powell.
Mr. Griffin.
I want to thank you very much for spending all this time and coming all the way from Oklahoma City.
Mrs. Powell.
Well, tonight I will hate you. A little later I will be real mad.
Mr. Griffin.
Are you working tonight?
Mrs. Powell.
Sure. I didn't get off until 3 o'clock this morning.
Mr. Griffin.
Are you going to be able to make it back?
Mrs. Powell.
I have to do three shows tonight. I will get back just in time to go to work, and I have to do three shows. I don't have to work tomorrow, though, Sunday. I am going to rest up all day and go out and see all the other people that have to work on Sunday. And I have to write a letter to the Commission.
Kenneth Lawry Dowe

Testimony of Kenneth Lawry Dowe

Mrs. Powell.
The testimony of Kenneth Lawry Dowe was taken at 9:45 a.m., on July 25, 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 state for the record again, my name is Burt Griffin, and I am a member of the general counsel's staff of the President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy.
Routinely we explain to the witness before we proceed with your testimony, a little bit about what is going on here.

Under those two official acts, the Commission has been directed to investigate the assassination of President Kennedy and the death of Lee Harvey Oswald, and to report back to the President on all the facts that we find.
We have asked you to come here today in particular because you have had some contact with Jack Ruby. Of course, we are interested in anything you
