Evening Session

Testimony of James Herbert Martin Resumed

The Chairman.
The President's Commission reconvened at 9:20 p.m.
Mr. Dulles.
The Committee will come to order. Will you continue with the testimony?
Mr. Redlich.
Thank you, Mr. Dulles.
Mr. Martin, at our last session I asked you whether you knew Jack Ruby, and you replied that you did. You indicated the brief contact that you have had with him and the two times, I believe, that you have been to his business establishment?
Mr. Martin.
Yes.
Mr. Redlich.
Apart from your own personal contact with Jack Ruby, do you have any other information about him and his activities which you would like to present before this Commission?
Mr. Martin.
No, nothing that I definitely know about him. It is just he is a city character. He is very friendly to everyone.
Mr. Redlich.
Please understand I am not asking you for rumors or that type of thing.
Mr. Martin.
No, I know. Well, just what I know of him, he seems very friendly to everyone, and he is always around. You are liable to see him anywhere.
Mr. Redlich.
Has he ever been to the motel that you have?
Mr. Martin.
Yes, I mentioned that.
Mr. Redlich.
Oh, yes.
Mr. Martin.
He brought that twist board out there one time.
Mr. Redlich.
Never been there as a guest?
Mr. Martin.
No.
Mr. Redlich.
I hand you a copy of an invoice for a Revere recorder and a 1,200-foot reel of recording tape, and ask you if you have ever seen this?
Mr. Martin.
Yes. That is a tape recorder that I rented and recorded the--
Mr. Redlich.
I will ask you about it shortly. I would just like to know if you are familiar with it.
Mr. Martin.
Yes.
Mr. Redlich.
Mr. Chairman, I am marking this as Commission Exhibit No. 332, and ask that it be admitted in evidence.
Mr. Dulles.
Any objection?
Mr. Leech.
No, sir.
Mr. Dulles.
It may be admitted.
(The tape recorder and tape invoice referred to were marked Commission's Exhibit No. 332 for identification and received in evidence.)
Mr. Redlich.
Mr. Martin, I hand you Commission Exhibit No. 332, and ask you to tell the Commission the conditions under which this invoice arose?
Mr. Martin.
We had Marina's manuscript interpreted by Ilya Mamantov, and this was part Of it. He was only able to interpret about half of it.
Mr. Redlich.
He interpreted it and put it on tape?
Mr. Martin.
And we recorded that on tape as he interpreted it.
Mr. Dulles.
How do you mean interpreted?
Mr. Martin.
He read it in English?
Mr. Dulles.
Oh, I see, translated it.
Mr. Martin.
Yes.
Mr. Dulles.
From Russian into English?
Mr. Martin.
Yes.
