(Testimony of Seth Kantor Resumed)

Mr. Griffin.
What kind of coverage or distribution were the stories that you wrote on the 22d and 23d given by the Scripps-Howard chain?
Mr. Kantor.
They were widely used, I believe; virtually every paper in the chain used the stories.
Mr. Griffin.
Do you have any questions, Mr. Hubert?
Mr. Hubert.
No.
Mr. Griffin.
I have none. Do you have anything further that you would want to say?
Mr. Kantor.
Nothing further.
Mr. Griffin.
Thank you very much.
Mr. Hubert.
We will have those photostated and if you could call in some time tomorrow we will see if we can't arrange to get them to you, or mail them, or do something.
Mr. Kantor.
If you don't mind, I would like to pick them up, but wonder if I could pick them up Friday.

William D. Crowe, Jr.

Testimony of William D. , Jr. Crowe

The testimony of William D. Crowe, Jr., was taken at 2:30 p.m., on June 2, 1964, at 200 Maryland Avenue NE., Washington, D.C., by Messrs. Leon D. Hubert, Jr., and Burt W. Griffin, assistant counsel of the President's Commission.
Mr. Hubert.
This is a deposition of Mr. William D. Crowe, Jr., who also uses the professional or stage name of Bill DeMar.
Mr. Crowe, my name is Leon D. Hubert and I am a member of the advisory staff of the general counsel on the President's Commission under the provisions of Executive Order 11130 issued by President Johnson on November 29, 1963, the joint resolution of Congress No. 137, and the rules and 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 deposition 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 relevant to the assassination of President Kennedy, and the subsequent violent death of Lee Harvey Oswald. In particular as to you, Mr. Crowe, the nature of the inquiry is to determine what facts you know about the death of Oswald or the relationship that there might have been between Oswald and Ruby and any other pertinent facts that you may know about the general inquiry. Now, Mr. Crowe, you appear today, I believe, by virtue of a letter addressed to you by Mr. J. Lee Rankin, general counsel of the staff of the President's Commission, is that correct?
Mr. Crowe.
Yes.
Mr. Hubert.
When did you receive it?
Mr. Crowe.
Friday; Friday, I guess.
Mr. Hubert.
That would have been the 29th of May, is that correct?
Mr. Crowe.
Yes.
Mr. Hubert.
I notice you are looking at an envelope. Is that the envelope?
Mr. Crowe.
Yes.
Mr. Hubert.
That it came in?
Mr. Crowe.
Yes.
Mr. Hubert.
What is the post date on it?
Mr. Crowe.
That is what I am looking for. It has no post date. The thing is blank.
Mr. Hubert.
What is the date of the letter itself?
Mr. Crowe.
May 28; so it must have been the 29th.
Mr. Hubert.
You think you received it on the 29th, last Friday. Is that correct?
Mr. Crowe.
Right.
Mr. Hubert.
All right. Now would you please stand, sir, so I may administer the oath. Raise your right hand. Do you solemnly swear that the testimony
