(Testimony of )

Representative Ford.
Cubans at the Cuban Embassy in Mexico. But the Mexican authorities gave us complete and the most helpful cooperation in full investigation of this matter.
The Chairman.
Are there any further questions? Mr. Dulles.
Mr. Dulles.
Had you finished?
Mr. Rankin.
Yes; I have.
(Discussion off the record.)
The Chairman.
Are we ready to go back on the record?
All right, the Commission will be in order.
Mr. Rankin.
Mr. Chief Justice, I should like to offer in evidence at this point Commission Exhibit No. 984 being the communication from yourself as Chairman of the Commission to the Secretary of State, dated March 11, 1964, and the Note Verbale in regard to the inquiries of the Soviet Union.
And Commission Exhibit No. 985 being the responses of the Soviet Union, including all of the medical as well as all other responses together with the transmittal letters from the Soviet Union and from the State Department.
The Chairman.
They may be admitted under those numbers.
(Commission Exhibits Nos. 984 and 985 were marked for identification and received in evidence.)
Mr. Rankin.
I would like to assign, Mr. Chief Justice, Commission Exhibit No. 986, if I may, to those prior communications from the files of the Soviet Embassy in Washington that were furnished to us by the State Department.
The Chairman.
They may be admitted under that number.
(Commission Exhibit No. 986 was marked for identification and received in evidence.)
Mr. Rankin.
Commission Exhibit No. 986 will be the copies of the records from the Soviet Embassy in Washington that were supplied to the Commission earlier by the State Department as a part of the records that were furnished to us by the State Department.
The Chairman.
Those were the ones that were voluntarily offered by the Russians before any request was made of them?
Mr. Rankin.
Yes, Mr. Chairman.
The Chairman.
They may be admitted under that number.
Mr. Rankin.
Mr. Secretary, will you tell us whether you know of any credible evidence to show or establish or tending to show any conspiracy either domestic or foreign involved in the assassination of President Kennedy?
Secretary RUSK. No; I have no evidence that would point in that direction or to lead me to a conclusion that such a conspiracy existed.
Mr. Rankin.
That is all I have.
The Chairman.
Are there any further questions, gentlemen? If not, thank you very much, Mr. Secretary.
Secretary RUSK. Thank you very much, Mr. Chief Justice and gentlemen.

Frances G. Knight

Testimony of Frances G. Knight

The Chairman.
The Commission will be in order.
Mr. Coleman, will you state to Miss Knight, please, the reason we asked her to come here today?
Mr. Coleman.
Miss Frances G. Knight is the head of the Passport Office of the State Department.
Miss KNIGHT. Yes, sir.
Mr. Coleman.
We want to ask her concerning the standard operating notice with respect to the lookout card system which was in effect as of November--as of February 28, 1962, and we also wanted to ask her concerning the decision of the Passport Office that Mr. Oswald had not expatriated himself and, therefore, he should be reissued his passport.
Miss KNIGHT. Yes, sir.
The Chairman.
Would you raise your right hand and be sworn, Miss Knight?
Do you solemnly swear the testimony you are about to give before the Commission
