(Testimony of Frankie Kaiser)

Mr. Ball.
You turned these over to your boss?

Mr. KAISER. You see, I went down and got them and they went down and got them and they handled them.
Mr. Ball.
That's all, Mr. Kaiser, and thanks very much for coming up. This will be written up and you can come down and read it over and sign it if you wish, or you can waive your signature, if you want to, and we can send it on without a signature.
Now, we will mark these pictures we've been talking about here in your deposition as Kaiser Exhibits Nos. A. B, C.
(Marked by reporter as Kaiser Exhibits Nos. A, B, C, for identification.)
Mr. Kaiser.
Anything else I can do, let me know.
Mr. Ball.
Do you want to waive your signature to it?
Mr. Kaiser.
Yes, I'll waive it.
Mr. Ball.
Fine. That's okay.
Mr. Kaiser.
All right.

Testimony of Frankie Kaiser Resumed

The testimony of Frankie Kaiser was taken at 3:40 p.m, on April 8, 1964, in the office of the U.S. attorney, 301 Post Office Building, Bryan and Ervay Streets, Dallas, TEA., by Mr. Joseph A. Ball, assistant counsel of the President's Commission.
Mr. Ball.
Frankie, we have already taken your deposition and I just wanted to ask you a few more questions and you are still under oath.
Mr. Kaiser.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Ball.
Now, Frankie, that clipboard you found describe it--what was it?
Mr. Kaiser.
It was made out of paper and tape and a little piece of pasteboard.
Mr. Ball.
Who made it?
Mr. Kaiser.
I did.
Mr. Ball.
When?
Mr. Kaiser.
Well, right after I started there it had been a long time ago.
Mr. Ball.
And how was it you weren't using it on this day?
Mr. Kaiser.
You see, when he first started there
Mr. Ball.
Who is "he"?
Mr. Kaiser.
Lee---when he first started to work there he got my clipboard and started using it.
Mr. Ball.
Did you give it to him to use?

Mr. KAISER. No, he just picked it up and started using it and I just went and made me another one.
Mr. Ball.
You recognized that clipboard when you saw it?
Mr. Kaiser.
Yes, because my name was all over it.
Mr. Ball.
Your name was on it, too?
Mr. Kaiser.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Ball.
You put your name "Frankie Kaiser" on it?

Mr. KAISER. You see, it don't do no good to get a clipboard around here everybody is always running off with it.
Mr. Ball.
That's the reason you put your name on it?
Mr. KAISER. He come up and got it and started using it and I just let him keep it and made me another one.
Mr. BALL. Now, here is a picture which is marked in a group of pictures as No. 36, but which I will mark as Exhibit A to your deposition.
(Instrument marked by the reporter as Kaiser Exhibit A, for identification.)
Mr. BALL. Does this show the place where the clipboard was found, or do you know?
Mr. Kaiser.
It wasn't found there--it was found on the floor.
Mr. Ball.
Where on the floor?
Mr. Kaiser.
Behind these cartons--between there and the wall.
Mr. Ball.
Behind which cartons?
Mr. Kaiser.
Right in here (indicating).
