TESTIMONY OF WILLIAM WAYNE WHALEY
The Chairman.
Mr. Whaley, the purpose of our meeting today is to take some further testimony concerning the events surrounding the assassination of President Kennedy, and we understand you have some facts that will bear on it in a way and we would like to ask you questions concerning it.
Will you rise, please, raise your right hand to be sworn?
Do you solemnly swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
Mr. Whaley.
I do, sir.
The Chairman.
Will you be seated, please? Mr. Ball will conduct the examination.
Mr. Ball.
Mr. Whaley, what is your business?
Mr. Whaley.
I am a taxi driver, sir.
Mr. Ball.

37 years.

You worked all that time in Dallas?
Mr. Whaley.
Yes, sir.
