(Testimony of Mr. Jack Ruby)

Mr. Ruby.
Chief Justice WARREN. You take my word for it and the word of Representative Ford, that we will do this thing at the earliest possible moment, and that it will be done in time. It will be done in time.
Mr. Ruby.
Well, you won't ever see me again, I tell you that. And I have lost my family.
Chief Justice WARREN. Yes?
Mr. Ruby.
No, no; you don't believe me, do you?
Chief Justice WARREN. To be frank with you, I believe that you are not stating now what is the fact.
I don't say you don't believe it, but I believe that I will be able to see you again and that we will be able to take this test that you are speaking of.
Well, I think we have tired Mr. Ruby. We have had him here for close to 4 hours now, and I am sure our reporter must be equally tired, but we appreciate your patience and your willingness to testify in this manner for us.
Mr. Ruby.
All I want to do is tell the truth, and the only way you can know it is by the polygraph, as that is the only way you can know it.
Chief Justice WARREN. That we will do for you.
(Whereupon, at 2:50 p.m., the President's Commission recessed.)
Mr. Ruby.
Monday, June 8, 1964

No, sir.
