(Testimony of Mrs. Earlene Roberts)

Mr. Ball.
It was not 170?
Mrs. Roberts.
The people I worked for was 170.
Mr. BALL. Did you report that number to anyone, did you report this incident to anyone?
Mrs. ROBERTS. Yes, I told the FBI and the Secret Service both when they was out there.
Mr. Ball.
And did you tell them the number of the car?

Mrs. ROBERTS. I'm not sure--I believe I did--I'm not sure. I think I did because there was so much happened then until my brains was in a whirl.
Mr. Ball.
On the 29th of November, Special Agents Will Griffin and James Kennedy of the Federal Bureau of Investigation interviewed you and you told them that "after Oswald had entered his room about 1 p.m. on November 22, 1963, you looked out the front window and saw police car No. 207?
Mrs. Roberts.
No. 107.
Mr. Ball.
Is that the number?

Mrs. ROBERTS. Yes--I remembered it. I don't know where I got that 106---207. Anyway, I knew it wasn't 170.
Mr. Ball.
And you say that there were two uniformed policemen in the car?
Mrs. Roberts.
Yes, and it was in a black car. It wasn't an accident squad car at all.
Mr. Ball.
Were there two uniformed policemen in the car?
Mrs. Roberts.
Oh, yes.
Mr. Ball.
And one of the officers sounded the born ?
Mrs. Roberts.
Just kind of a "tit-tit"--twice.
Mr. BALL. And then drove on to Beckley toward Zangs Boulevard, is that right?
Mrs. ROBERTS. Yes. I thought there was a number, but I couldn't remember it but I did know the number of their car--I could tell that. I want you to understand that I have been put through the third degree and it's hard to remember.
Mr. Ball.
Are there any other questions?
Dr. GOLDBERG. No, that's all.

Mr. BALL. Now, Mrs. Roberts, this deposition will be written up and you can read it if you want to and you can sign it. or you can waive the signature.
Mrs. Roberts.
Well, you know, I can't see too good how to read. I'm completely blind in my right eye.
Mr. Ball.
Do you want to waive your signature? And then you won't have to come back down here.
Mrs. Roberts.
Well, okay.
Mr. Ball.
All right, you waive it then ?
Mrs. Roberts.
Yes. Do you want me to sign it now?
Mr. BALL. No; we couldn't, because this young lady has to write it up and it will be a couple of weeks before it will be ready.
Mrs. Roberts.
Well, will you want me to come back or how?

Mr. BALL. Well, you can waive your signature and you won't have to come back to do that--do you want to do that?
Mrs. Roberts.
Okay, it will be all right.
Mr. Ball.
All right. The Secret Service will take you home now.
Mrs. Roberts.
All right.
Mr. Ball.
Thank you for coming.
Mrs. Roberts.
All right.
