(Testimony of Clyde A. Haygood)

Mr. Belin.
Could you read what you said there?

Mr. HAYGOOD. It says, "Get men to cover the building, Texas School Book Depository, believe the shots came from there, facing it on Elm Street looking at the building it will be the second window from the end in the upper right hand corner."
Mr. Belin.
Did you say that?
Mr. Haygood.
Mr. BELIN. Then the transmission made to you, 531 to 142 calling, "How many do you have there?" And you made a response which is?
Mr. HAYGOOD. "One guy possibly hit by a ricochet off the concrete and another seen the President slump."
Mr. Belin.
Were there two more people in addition to the one that you saw?
Mr. HAYGOOD. They are still the same people I was referring to back on the transmission that I made.
Mr. Belin.
How many different people did you talk to? One that was possibly hit by a ricochet?
Mr. Haygood.
Piece of concrete.
Mr. Belin.
Was he the one that saw the President slump?
Mr. Haygood.
Mr. BELIN. Was there someone that saw the President slump, and a third stated it was from the second window from the end in the upper right-hand corner?
Mr. Haygood.
I don't recall how many it was. There was quite a chaos there at that time.
Mr. Belin.
Do you remember if there were two or more than two?
Mr. Haygood.
No, sir.
Mr. BELIN. Do you remember anything about the description of the man that said that the shot came from the second window from the end in the upper right-hand corner?
Mr. Haygood.
Mr. Belin.
Do you remember if he was white or Negro?
Mr. Haygood.
He was a white man.
Mr. Belin.
Man or woman?
Mr. Haygood.
Mr. Belin.
Do you remember whether he was young or medium or old?

Mr. HAYGOOD. That would be a guess on my part. I don't recall. He was just a medium age.
Mr. Belin.
Do you remember if he was dressed in a suit or not a suit?

Mr. Haygood.
Best I remember, just sports clothes. I mean, it consisted of no tie or coat.
Mr. BELIN. Okay, thank you, sir.

Mr. Belin.
Would you stand and raise your right hand.

Do you solemnly swear that the testimony you are about to give will be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
Mr. BREWER. I do.
Mr. Belin.
Would you state your name.
Mr. Brewer.

What is your occupation, Mr. Brewer?
