What is your age, Mr. Voebel?

Mr. Jenner.
You received a letter from Mr. Rankin, general counsel of the Warren Commission, did you not?
Mr. Voebel.
Yes, sir.

And enclosed with the letter were a copy of Senate Joint Resolution 137, authorizing the creation of the Commission to investigate the assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy; is that right?
Mr. Voebel.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
And Executive Order No. 11130, of President Lyndon B. Johnson appointing that Commission and fixing its powers and duties; is that right?
Mr. Voebel.
Yes.
Mr. Jenner.
And a copy of the rules and regulations under which we take testimony before the Commission and also by way of deposition, such as this one. You received that also?
Mr. Voebel.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
I take it you gather from those documents that the Commission is enjoined to investigate all of the facts and circumstances surrounding and bearing upon the assassination of the late President John Fitzgerald Kennedy.
Mr. Voebel.
Yes.
Mr. Jenner.
