(Testimony of John Henry Branch)

Mr. Hubert.
You have had experience along that line?
Mr. Branch.
Yes; that's why all the musicians was quitting--on account of her. They worked for him, but they don't want to work for her, but he put her over there and so they just stayed along.
Mr. Hubert.
Was there anybody with Ruby on the night you saw him?
Mr. Branch.
No, sir; he was by himself.
Mr. Hubert.
When did you first learn that he had shot Oswald?
Mr. Branch.
When I was looking at television.
Mr. Hubert.
Did you recognize him?
Mr. Branch.
No, sir; not at first, because he was just like that--I was a little surprised.
Mr. Hubert.
Did you know Andy Armstrong who worked over there at the Carousel?
Mr. Branch.
No, sir; I don't know nobody over at the Carousel at all. I knew Joe Johnson and all the and that worked up them.
Mr. Hubert.
Did you know Mr. Ralph Paul?
Mr. Branch.
I'm trying to think of who that is--I didn't know him. I know Miss Grant and I knowed nothing but the band.
Mr. Hubert.
Do you know Mr. George Senator, a roommate of Ruby's?
Mr. Branch.
No, sir; I didn't know him at all. I have never seen him. I have seen some men with him sometimes but I didn't know who it was. You see, he would get out of there he'd get out when he'd drive up there, and a lot of times I'd see him pass and call him and he wouldn't stop, and I wouldn't stop him.
Mr. Hubert.
All right, just to close this--is there anything more you want to say?
Mr. Branch.
No, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
There has been no conversation between us other than what's been recorded in this room, is that correct?
Mr. Branch.
Yes; that's correct.
Mr. Hubert.
Thank you very much, Mr. Branch. I appreciate your coming by.
Mr. Branch.
Thank you, I appreciate it too.

Mr. Hubert.
This is the deposition of William Glenn Duncan.

Mr. Duncan, my name is Leon Hubert. I am a member of the advisory staff of the general counsel on the President's Commission. Under the provisions of Executive Order 11130, dated November 29, 1963, and the joint resolution of Congress No. 137 and the rules of procedure adopted by the President's Commission in conformance with that Executive order and that joint resolution, I have been authorized to take a sworn deposit on 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 relative to the assassination of President Kennedy and the subsequent violent death of Lee Harvey Oswald.
In particular, as to you, Mr. Duncan, the nature of the inquiry today is to determine what facts you may know about the death of Oswald and any other pertinent facts you may know about the general inquiry, and about Jack Ruby and his operations and movements and associates and so forth.
I think you appear here today by virtue of a letter written to you by Mr. J. Lee Rankin, general counsel of the staff of the President's Commission asking you to be present, is that correct?
