(Testimony of James Herbert Martin Resumed)

Mr. Redlich.
Mr. Leech, would you like to ask Mr. Martin any questions at this time?
Mr. Leech.
Not a word.
Mr. Dulles.
Mr. Rhyne? Mr. Rankin, have you any further questions?
Mr. Rankin.
Mr. Chairman, I merely wish to thank him for appearing voluntarily.
Mr. Dulles.
I do thank you for coming and responding so fully to our questions.
Mr. Martin.
Anything I can do.
Mr. Dulles.
And if anything occurs to you or to your counsel as sometime happens later, we will be very glad if you or your counsel will bring it to our attention.
Mr. Martin.
Yes, sir; I certainly will.
Mr. Redlich.
May I before we adjourn ask another question?
Mr. Dulles.
Mr. Redlich.
Have you ever discussed with Mrs. Marguerite Oswald the question of the guilt or innocence of Lee Harvey Oswald?
Mr. Martin.
No. The only time I was in contact with Marguerite Oswald was at the Inn of the Six Flags in Arlington, Tex., and I don't believe I really discussed anything with her. I was more on the sidelines and didn't enter into any discussions with her at all.
Mr. Redlich.
And have you discussed with Robert Oswald the question of the guilt or innocence of Lee Harvey Oswald?
Mr. Martin.
Yes. Let's see, on one occasion the article by Mark Lane, I think it was in the National Observer, was printed in the National Observer, and I called Robert's attention to that. I believe he cited 15 points where he believed that Lee Oswald was innocent, and I remarked to Robert that in nearly 100 per-cent of those points they were just completely out of line. The brief I believe was taken from newspaper accounts, from various newspaper accounts of the assassination, and a number of them contradicted each other.
Mr. Redlich.
Did Robert Oswald comment on this?
Mr. Martin.
Mr. Redlich.
For the record I believe the publication you are referring to is the National Guardian.
Mr. Martin.
The National Guardian, yes.
Mr. Redlich.
Is that your recollection now?
Mr. Martin.
Yes, National Guardian.
Mr. Redlich.
And Robert Oswald had no comment on this?
Mr. Martin.
Mr. Redlich.
We have no further questions.
Mr. Dulles.
The Commission will stand adjourned, subject to call.
(Whereupon, at 10:20 p.m., the President's Commission recessed.)

Mark Lane
