(Testimony of Warren Caster)

Mr. Caster.
Well, I'm not really sure who was there. I think you were there, Bill, and Mr. Shelley was there---and Mr. Roy Truly. The only people that I know about, in any event, were there; there were workers there at the time, but I'm not quite sure how many. I couldn't even tell you their names. I don't know the Texas School Book Depository workers there in the shipping department
Mr. Ball.
In that office, though, Truly's office, how many were there?
Mr. Caster.
We weren't in Mr. Truly's immediate office, we were just there over the counter.
Mr. Ball.
In the warehouse?
Mr. Caster.
We were there in the hall--just right there over the counter in front of the warehouse; that's right.
Mr. Ball.
And did you take the guns out of the carton?
Mr. Caster.
Yes; I did. They were removed from the carton.
Mr. Ball.
Did you handle them?
Mr. Caster.
Yes; I did.
Mr. Ball.
Did anybody else handle the guns?
Mr. Caster.
Mr. Truly handled them and I'm not sure whether Mr. Shelley had the guns in his hands or not; I'm not positive.
Mr. Ball.
How long a time were you there with the guns, and by time, just estimate it.
Mr. Caster.
Well, it couldn't have been more than to minutes.
Mr. Ball.
What did you do with the guns after that?
Mr. Caster.
I put them back in the carton and carried them up to my office. Mr. BALL. And what did you do with them after that?
Mr. Caster.
I left at the end of the working day, oh, around 4 o'clock and took the guns in the cartons and carried them and put them in my car and carried them home.
Mr. Ball.
Did you ever have them back in the Texas School Book Depository Building thereafter?
Mr. Caster.
They have never been back to the Texas School Book Depository Building since then.
Mr. Ball.
Where were those guns on November 22, 1963?
Mr. Caster.
The guns were in my home, 3338 Merrell Road.
Mr. BALL. I think that's all. This will be written up and you will be asked to come in and it will be submitted to you for signature and you can correct it if you wish.
Mr. Caster.
That's all right.
Mr. Ball.
Any corrections you make, make them in pen and ink and initial it and sign it. I want to thank you very much for giving this testimony.
Mr. Caster.
I thank you very much.

Eddie Piper

Testimony of Eddie Piper

The testimony of Eddie Piper was taken at 4 p.m., on May 14, 1964, at the Texas School Book Depository Building, Dallas, Tex. by Mr. Joseph A. Bail, assistant counsel of the President's Commission.
Mr. Ball.
You understand since this is a continuation of your deposition you are under oath still?
Mr. Piper.
Thank you; I appreciate it.
Mr. Ball.
Your deposition has been taken?
Mr. Piper.
Yes; that's right.
Mr. Ball.
I'm going to just ask you a few questions.
Mr. Piper.
Sure, that's all right.
Mr. Ball.
You told us that after the shooting you came out onto the floor?
Mr. Piper.
That's right.
Mr. Ball.
And the first people that you saw on the floor after the shooting was who?
