(Testimony of Robert G. Klause)

Mr. Klause.
I am glad I can do what I can do. Straightened out. I feel real guilty about it.
Mr. Jenner.
Is there anything you would like to add, Mr. Klause?
Mr. Klause.
No, sir; except that it is a mess, and that I am just a poor country boy, I guess you would say, that got caught up in the mess, and I strictly learned my lesson on this.
I have hurt a bunch of people, especially my folks, and I have caused a lot of trouble. I just feel real bad about it. That is all. If I had taken time to have read the thing actually I don't think I would ever have done it.
But like I said, it was late at night, and I was in a hurry, and I wanted to get it on and off.
Mr. Jenner.
And you needed the money.
Mr. Klause.
And I needed the money; yes, sir.
Mr. Dulles.
What did you net on this?
Mr. Klause.
$40. Actually, I think the stock was somewhere around $20. I paid for the stock, and he in turn paid for the stock.
Mr. Dulles.
$40 was your profit on this?
Mr. Klause.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
$40 was the full profit to you?
Mr. Klause.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Dulles.
Have you anything further, Mr. Jenner?
Mr. Jenner.
No; I have not.
Mr. Dulles.
The Commission will stand adjourned.
(Whereupon, at 4:15 p.m., the President's Commission recessed.)

Mark Lane
Thursday, July 2, 1964

Testimony of Mark Lane Resumed

The President's Commission met at 2 p.m., on July 2, 1964, at 200 Maryland Avenue NE. Washington, D.C.
Present were: Chief Justice Earl Warren, Chairman; and Representative Gerald R. Ford, member.
Also present were J. Lee Rankin, general counsel; and Norman Redlich, assistant counsel.
The Chairman.
The Commission will be in order.
Mr. Lane, the last time you were here, we excused you as a witness. You should be sworn again as a witness.
Do you solemnly swear that the testimony you shall give before this Commission will be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
Mr. Lane.
I do.
The Chairman.
You may be seated, please. Mr. Rankin will ask you some questions that were not entirely cleared up when you were here last time. Would you proceed?
Mr. Rankin.
Mr. Lane, you testified before the Commission the last time on March 4, did you?
Mr. Lane.
Yes; I did.
Mr. Rankin.
And you recall your testimony at that time?
Mr. Lane.
Well, it was rather long testimony. I recall portions of it; yes, sir.
Mr. Rankin.
Yes. Do you recall that you were asked about an interview with Helen Markham?
Mr. Lane.
I recall testifying to that; yes. I don't know if I was asked about it specifically, but I do recall testifying in reference to that interview.
Mr. Rankin.
If you would care to refer to your testimony at any time, you are free to do so.
