(Testimony of )

Mr. Ball.
You always punch at the end of your destination?
Mr. Mcwatters.
Yes, that is the usual procedure on it.
Mr. Ball.
Now, on one side of Lakewood is Beckley, where is that?
Mr. Mcwatters.
Well, that is on the opposite of town from--
Mr. Ball.
The other side is Capital. Where is that?
Mr. Mcwatters.
Capital, well, Capital is in north Dallas, I believe it is.
Mr. Ball.
Are those Beckley lines listed on the transfer on your run?
Mr. Mcwatters.
No, sir; I don't--you mean on the transfer?
Mr. Ball.
Yes.
Mr. Mcwatters.
Well, that is, in other words, we all--they have so many of the lines listed, in other words, I believe they have two divisions, I believe all the buses that work out of the east Dallas division have--
Mr. Ball.
We can make this pretty simple. You have on this transfer certain names. When you are running Marsalis-Ramona-Elwood-Munger, how many possible punches would--location punches would you make?
Mr. Mcwatters.
In other words, if I was--Marsalis when I left the end of Marsalis out there I would punch my transfer Marsalis, if I left the end of Ramona I would punch them Ramona. In other words, that is so they can't ride them, in other words, they can't ride the transfer.
Mr. Ball.
Now, Lakewood is at one end of your run?
Mr. Mcwatters.
That is right.
Mr. Ball.
And Marsalis-Ramona-Elwood is the other, is that right?
Mr. Mcwatters.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Ball.
So you would punch one of those names?
Mr. Mcwatters.
Going that way, while at Marsalis, I would punch the Lakewood when I would leave Marsalis coming toward Lakewood, I would have Lakewood on the front of my bus but I would punch the transfer Marsalis.
Mr. Ball.
I have no further questions.
Representative Ford.
Thank you very much, Mr. McWatters.
Mr. Mcwatters.
Thank you, gentlemen.

William Wayne Whaley

Testimony of William Wayne Whaley Resumed

Mr. Ball.
Mr. Whaley, I have here an exhibit which I will mark 370.
(The document was marked Commission Exhibit No. 370 for identification.)
Mr. Ball.
370 is a photostat of a manifest of yours, and it is dated November 22, 1963. I mark this 370. Do you recognize that?
Mr. Whaley.
That is the original trip sheet.
Mr. Ball.
In your handwriting?
Mr. Whaley.
Yes, sir; in my handwriting.
Mr. Ball.
I will offer this into evidence at this time, and the original trip sheet as Exhibit No. 382.
Representative Ford.
So admitted.
(Commission Exhibits Nos. 370 and 382 were received in evidence.)
Mr. Ball.
I have here a bracelet which is marked 383. Take a look at it and tell me if you have ever seen it before.
Mr. Whaley.
Yes, sir; as near as I can tell that is the bracelet he was wearing the day I carried him, the shiny bracelet I was talking about.
Mr. Ball.
You mentioned the fact that the man who sat in the front seat of your cab, which you drove from the Greyhound Station on Lamar Street over to 500 North Beckley, had an identification bracelet on him.
Mr. Whaley.
Yes, it looked like an identification bracelet. It looks like this one, sir, it was shiny, I couldn't tell exactly whether that was the bracelet or not.
Mr. Ball.
But it looks like one of them?
Mr. Whaley.
Yes, sir; it looks like it.
Mr. Ball.
Offer this in evidence.
Representative Ford.
So admitted.
(Commission Exhibit No. 383 was withdrawn and a photograph of the bracelet was received as Commission Exhibit No. 383-A.)
