(Testimony of Prof. Revilo Pendleton Oliver)

Mr. Unger.
I understand that I have the opportunity to clarify any Points that are in confusion, but I think that the witness and counsel have brought

everything out admirably. I can't think anything that needs to be added.
Mr. Jenner.
Thank you. I have no further questions.
Mr. Oliver.
I would like to
Mr. Jenner.
Is there something you would like to add, sir ?
Mr. Oliver.
Merely to Point out that your opening statement of which I have a copy here, confuses the article with the speech in the reference to the rehearsal for the funeral which, of course, was not made in the article but was made in the speech, and contains a very serious misstatement in saying that in my article I charge that "President Kennedy's assassination was part of a Communist plot engendered with the help of the Central Intelligence Agency." I make no such charge.
Mr. Jenner.
The charge you make is contained in your speech. Whatever You say on that subject is contained in Oliver Exhibit No. 10, your speech, is that correct, sir?
Mr. Oliver.
What I say on that subject is contained in the speech which you have labeled No. 10.
Mr. Jenner.
Are there any other sources for your speech or your article to which we have not yet made reference?
Mr. Oliver.
There would probably be thousands of them if we consider the first two-thirds of the speech in which I discuss socialism and so on
Mr. Jenner.
Doctor, we are only concerned with the subject matter.
Mr. Oliver.
Of the assassination?
Mr. Jenner.
Mr. Oliver.
No, we have covered only the kind of sources that we have used.
Mr. Jenner.
Mr. Reporter, I offer in evidence as Oliver Exhibits Nos. 1 through 12, the documents previously so marked.
(The documents heretofore marked as Oliver Exhibits Nos. 1 through 12, were received in evidence.)
Mr. Jenner.
All right, thank you, sir.
B. M. Patterson

Affidavit of B. M. Patterson

Mr. Jenner.
The following affidavit was executed by B. M. Patterson on August 26, 1964.


I, B. M. Patterson, being duly sworn, depose as follows:
I now reside at Apartment 201, Habana Apartments, 1607 North Carroll, Dallas, Texas. On January 22, 1964, I was residing at 4635 Hartford Street, Dallas, Texas, and was then employed by Wyatt's Cafeteria, 2647 Lancaster, Dallas, Texas.
On January 22, 1964, I was interviewed by Special Agents John T. Kesler and Vernon Mitchem of the Federal Bureau of Investigation concerning what I had seen on November 22, 1963, as it related to Lee Harvey Oswald, the shooting of Dallas Police Officer, J. D. Tippit, and the assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy.
I have been shown the written rePort of the results of this interview by Special Agents John T. Kesler and Vernon Mitchem of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, on January 22, 1964.* While this transcription is basically and materially correct, I desire to make the following clarifications in regard to the contents of this rePort. This modification pertains to the second sentence of paragraph two. I choose to have the second referenced sentence changed to read as follows:
