(Testimony of Mrs. Lee Harvey Oswald Resumed)

Mr. Dulles.
Those were the new rubles, revalued rubles, that is about $90; is it not?
Mrs. Oswald.
$90 or $80.
Representative Ford.
While you were married did you know of any extra money he was getting?
Mrs. Oswald.
He didn't receive any--he didn't receive any extra money while we were married, he had a little bit left over from what he was getting before, that is all.
Representative Ford.
Did he handle all of the money that he received or did he give you some while you were in the Soviet Union?
Mrs. Oswald.
I was working at the same time, and I gave him my salary and he in turn would give me some money every now and then to buy groceries with and that sort of thing, but I didn't ever get any money from his salary.
Representative Ford.
So the only income that you know about was the money you earned and the money that he earned?
Mrs. Oswald.
Yes.
Representative Ford.
And how much did you earn?
Mrs. Oswald.
45.
Representative Ford.
45 rubles a month?
Mrs. Oswald.
A month.
Representative Ford.
There were no other funds, to your knowledge, that he received after you were married?
Mrs. Oswald.
No.
Representative Ford.
He paid all the bills?
Mrs. Oswald.
Yes. You didn't have too much bills in Russia.
Mr. Dulles.
Did he take your money, too? What was your rent, do you recall at that time, rent of the apartment?
Mrs. Oswald.
Seven rubles and 50 cents, kopeks.
Mr. Dulles.
Was it 7 rubles and 50 kopeks? A week?
Mrs. Oswald.
A month; the rent in Russia are usually about 10 percent of wages a month.
Mr. Mckenzie.
Wages are low, too.
Mrs. Oswald.
Of course, people who get more, higher wages have bigger apartments.
Mr. Dulles.
Mr. Rankin, I think, is it all right to adjourn at this point? We will reconvene at 2 o'clock.
(Whereupon, at 12:50 p.m., the President's Commission recessed.)

Harris Coulter
Afternoon Session

Testimony of Harris Coulter

The President's Commission reconvened at 2 p.m.
(Members present at this point: Chief Justice Warren and Representative Ford.)
The Chairman.
The Commission will come to order. You may proceed, Mr. Rankin.
Mr. Rankin.
Mr. Chief Justice, Mr. McKenzie has asked that we develop in the record a little bit about the qualifications of Mr. Coulter as an interpreter, so it would be clear that he is able to translate back and forth.
The Chairman.
Very well.
Mr. Rankin.
Mr. Coulter, I think you should be sworn for this.
The Chairman.
Would you rise and be sworn, please? Do you solemnly swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
Mr. Coulter.
I do.
Mr. Rankin.
Will you please state your full name?
Mr. Coulter.
Harris Livermore Coulter.
Mr. Rankin.
Where do you live?
Mr. Coulter.
Glen Echo Heights, Md.
Mr. Rankin.
Do you have a position in the Government at the present time?
