(Testimony of Gerald Dalton Henslee)

Mr. Henslee.
That is the number assigned to Inspector J. H. Sawyer.
Mr. Belin.
Different numbers are assigned to different people?
Mr. Henslee.
Yes.
Mr. Belin.
If an officer is patrolling a district, does he have the number assigned to a district if he is not a high officer in the Department?
Mr. Henslee.
That's correct.
Mr. BELIN. For instance, I see the No. 78 here. Does that appear to be the number of J. D. Tippit?
Mr. Henslee.
On that particular day it was.
Mr. BELIN. All right, anything else you can think of, Sergeant, that might be relevant to the investigation into the assassination of the President or the shooting of Officer Tippit?
Mr. HENSLEE. No. The only thing I have is what I observed over the police radio that day. That is all the knowledge I have at all.
Mr. Belin.
All right, sir; we thank you very much for your cooperation.
One other thing, you have the right to read this deposition and sign it before it goes into Washington, or else you can waive the reading and have it go directly to Washington.
Do you have any preference?
Mr. Henslee.
Yes, I would like to read it before I sign it.
Mr. Belin.
That is all right. It makes no difference to us. And again, we thank you.
Mr. Henslee.
What else can I do for you?
