(Testimony of C. Ray Hall)

Mr. Hall.
I'm not positive, but I don't believe he testified during it or at any of the hearings.
Mr. Hubert.
Did any of the State officials confer with you for the purpose of using you as witnesses to what Ruby had told you?
Mr. Hall.
No, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
Do you know the reason why?
Mr. Hall.
No, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
I think that's about all, Mr. Hall. Have you anything else you would like to add?
Mr. Hall.
No, sir; I'll try to answer any questions you may have.
Mr. Hubert.
I don't think I have any more. That clarifies it all. Thank you, sir.
Mr. Hall.
Thank you very much.
Mr. Hubert.
Mr. Hall, prior to the beginning of this deposition, you and I had not met in fact nor had we conversed in any way at all?
Mr. Hall.
That's correct. As far as I know, I have never seen you before I entered this room.
Mr. Hubert.
I think we did speak about some of the acquaintances I knew many years ago in the FBI, but we did not speak about anything concerning this deposition at all?
Mr. Hall.
No, sir; we had no conversation concerning this matter that you are connected with at anytime except during the time you were taking this deposition.
Mr. Hubert.
And so that all of our contact as to this whole matter has been a matter of record?
Mr. Hall.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
That's all, and I thank you very much.
Mr. Hall.
Thank you.

Seth Kantor

Testimony of Seth Kantor

The testimony of Seth Kantor was taken at 9:15 a.m, on June 2, 1964, at 200 Maryland Avenue NE, Washington, D.C., by Messrs Burt W. Griffin and Leon D. Hubert, Jr., assistant counsel of the President's Commission.
Mr. Griffin.
Mr. Kantor, as you know, the Commission has been set up pursuant to an Executive order of President Johnson, and a joint resolution of Congress, which was enacted on November 29 of last year. The Commission has been directed to inquire into and evaluate the evidence with respect to the assassination of President Kennedy and the murder of Lee Harvey Oswald. We have asked you to come here today because, from the interview that you have provided to the FBI it appears that you would have some information which would bear upon the activities of Jack Ruby, and the events that transpired between the time the President was assassinated and the time that Ruby shot Oswald. I believe that you received a letter from us.
Mr. Kantor.
I did.
Mr. Griffin.
Can you state for the record when you received the letter?
Mr. Kantor.
I want to make sure. I am not sure whether it was Thursday or Friday morning. The letter was dated May 28. I received it on the 29th.
Mr. Griffin.
Under the rules of the Commission, you are entitled to receive a 3-day notice by mail. and I believe that has been complied with.
Mr. Kantor.
There is something in the letter, though, I would like to bring up. It says, "The Commission is authorized to pay you the same fees as are paid to witnesses whose depositions are taken in connection with" --et cetera. I want to waive any fee which would be connected with this.
Mr. Griffin.
All right. You are certainly entitled to it. It is minimal, I can assure you. Do you have any other questions that you want to ask before we get started?
Mr. Kantor.
No, none.
