(Testimony of Ralph Paul)

Mr. Hubert.
In other words, you spoke to them and told them that you had talked to Jack, but that was after you knew Jack had shot Oswald?
Mr. Paul.
No--I told them that he called me on Saturday night a few times.
Mr. Hubert.
But did you tell them that before you knew that Jack had shot Oswald or after?
Mr. Paul.
Mr. Hubert.
All right, Mr. Paul. I don't believe we have talked about anything today that has not been made a part of the record, is that correct, sir?
Mr. Paul.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
I certainly thank you for coming again, Mr. Paul.
Mr. Paul.
Okay--my pleasure.

Harry Tasker

Testimony of Harry Tasker

The testimony of Harry Tasker was taken at 7 p.m., on August 24, 1964, at the Federal Building, Forth Worth, Tex. by Mr. Leon D. Hubert, Jr., assistant counsel of the President's Commission.
Mr. Hubert.
This is the deposition of Harry Tasker.
Mr. Tasker, my name is Leon Hubert. I am a member of the advisory staff of the general counsel of the President's Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy. 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 Commission in conformance with that Executive order and that joint resolution, I have been authorized to take this sworn deposition from you.
I state to you 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. Tasker, the nature of the inquiry today is to determine what facts you 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 so forth.
We are also inquiring into the circumstances of the presence of Jack Ruby in the basement of the police department and his movements and so forth on November 24.
Now, Mr. Tasker, every witness is required by rules adopted by the Commission to have 3-days written notice to appear and give their deposition, but the rules also provide that if the witness is willing, he may waive that written notice and can go ahead and testify.
Mr. Tasker.
I guess I can answer your questions or what you want to know--what's the use of waiting 3 days ?
Mr. Hubert.
You are willing to testify right now, as I understand?
Mr. Tasker.
Mr. Hubert.
All right, will you rise so I can administer the oath.
Do you solemnly swear the testimony you are about to give in this matter will be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
Mr. Tasker.
Mr. Hubert.
Will you state your name, please?
Mr. Tasker.
Harry T. Tasker.
Mr. Hubert.
Where do you reside?
Mr. TASKER, Right now I'm living at 4396 Percy Street, Lancaster, Tex. I've bought me a home out there. It's in Dallas, but my mailing address is Lancaster, Tex.
Mr. Hubert.
What is your occupation?
Mr. Tasker.
I drive a taxicab.
Mr. Hubert.
How long have you been so doing?
Mr. Tasker.
Two years.
