(Testimony of Earle Cabell)

Mr. Hubert.
It is reasonable to suppose that if any had been recorded, it would have been brought to your attention
Mr. Cabell.
I am sure it would.
Mr. Hubert.
Who has the possession of that tape?
Mr. Cabell.
The police department.
Mr. Hubert.
They still have it?
Mr. Cabell.
I am assuming that they still have it.
Mr. Hubert.
All right, thank you very much, sir. I certainly thank both of you.

Mrs. Earle Cabell

Testimony of Mrs. Earle Cabell

The testimony of Mrs. Earle Cabell was taken at 10 a.m., on July 13, 1964, in the office of the U.S. attorney, 301 Post Office Building, Bryan and Ervay Streets, Dallas, Tex. by Mr. Leon D. Hubert, Jr., assistant counsel of the President's Commission. Sam Kelley, assistant attorney general of Texas, was present.
Mr. Hubert.
This is the deposition of Mrs. Earle Cabell. Mrs. Cabell, my name is Leon D. Hubert. I am a member of the advisory staff of the general counsel of the President's Commission. Under the provisions of Executive Order 11130 dated November 29, 1963, and the joint resolution of Congress No. 137, and the rules of procedure adopted by the President's Commission in conformance with that Executive order and the joint resolution, I have been authorized to take a sworn deposition from you, among others.
I state to you now that the general nature of the Commission's inquiry is to ascertain, evaluate, and report upon the facts relevant to the assassination of President Kennedy and the subsequent violent death of Lee Harvey Oswald. In particular as to you, Mrs. Cabell, the nature of the inquiry today is to determine what facts you know about the death of Oswald and any other pertinent facts you may know about the general inquiry.
Now Mrs. Cabell, you appear today by virtue of a letter addressed actually to you and your husband, Mayor Earle Cabell, by Mr. J. Lee Rankin, general counsel of the staff of the President's Commission, is that correct? That letter was dated either the 8th or 9th, or in any case was received on the 8th or 9th of July?
Mrs. Cabell.
Mr. Hubert.
Now will you stand, please, and take the oath? Do you solemnly swear that the testimony you are about to give in this matter will be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
Mrs. Cabell.
I do.
Mr. Hubert.
Please state your name for the record, please, ma'am.
Mrs. Cabell.
Mrs. Earle Cabell.
Mr. Hubert.
You are the wife of former Mayor Earle Cabell?
Mrs. Cabell.
Mr. Hubert.
You reside with him now at what address?
Mrs. Cabell.
5338 Drane.
Mr. Hubert.
Mrs. Cabell, I think you were with your husband in the presidential parade on November 22, 1963?
Mrs. Cabell.
That's right.
Mr. Hubert.
I wish you would tell us in your own words what you observed concerning the shooting of the President. I might say that your husband has testified that you were in the second or third car behind the President's car--the third or fourth car.

Mrs. CABELL. Third or fourth. We have never been able to be sure about that, because we were under the impression--of course, the chief of police's car preceded the presidential car, and we were under the impression that it was the presidential car, the vice presidential car, the station wagon apparently with Secret Service men, and then our car. There have been other statements made which we have never been quite sure of, that there was a Secret Service car
