(Testimony of Robert Edwin Edwards)

Mr. Belin.
What did Fischer say to you?

Mr. EDWARDS. I don't recall what he said, but I know that we said a few things. It wasn't of any importance at the time. And we looked up at him, both of us.
Mr. Belin.
How long did you look at him?
Mr. Edwards.
Just a few seconds.
Mr. BELIN. Then what took your attention away, if any, or did you Just start looking somewhere else?
Mr. Edwards.
Started looking somewhere else.
Mr. Belin.
How long after that did the motorcade come by?
Mr. Edwards.
Thirty seconds or a minute.
Mr. Belin.
Anything else that you can remember that you or Ronald Fischer
Mr. Edwards.
Mr. Belin.
Anything else you can think of that might be relevant at all?
Mr. Edwards.
Mr. Belin.
How many shots did you hear, if you remember?
Mr. Edwards.
Well, I heard one more then than was fired, I believe.
Mr. Belin.
You mean you said on the affidavit you heard four shots?
Mr. Edwards.
I still right now don't know how many was fired. If I said four, then I thought I heard four.
Mr. Belin.
If you said four, you mean the affidavit-maybe we'd better introduce it into the record as Edward's Deposition Exhibit A. Where do you think the shots came from?
Mr. Edwards.
I have no idea.
Mr. Belin.
In the affidavit you stated that the shots seemed to come from the building there. Did you really say that or not?
Mr. Edwards.
No; I didn't say that.
Mr. Belin.
All right, anything else you can think of?
Mr. Edwards.
Mr. BELIN. I want to thank you for coming down here. You have an opportunity, if you want, to come back and read this deposition and sign it, or else you can waive the signing and reading of it and it will be sent directly to Washington by the court reporter. It makes no difference to us. You can read and sign or can waive reading and signing.
Mr. Edwards.
I don't want to make an extra trip.
Mr. Belin.
Do you want to waive it then?

Mrs. Jean Lollis Hill
Mr. Edwards.

Mr. SPECTER, May the record show that Mrs. Jean Lollis Hill is present at this moment in response to a letter request that she appear and give a deposition to the President's Commission investigating the assassination of President Kennedy.
