(Testimony of John M. Murret)

Mr. Liebeler.
You don't remember what color it was?
Mr. Murret.
No, sir.
Mr. Liebeler.
If you can't think of anything else that you can remember or that you think would be helpful, I have no more questions at this point.
Mr. Murret.
Mr. Liebeler.
I want to thank you very much.

Edward John Pic, Jr.

Testimony of Edward John , Jr. Pic

The testimony of Edward John Pic, Jr., was taken on April 7, 1964, at the Old Civil Courts Building, Royal and Conti Streets, New Orleans, La., by Mr. Albert E. Jenner, Jr., assistant counsel of the President's Commission.

Edward John Pic, Jr., No. 6 Jay Street, Lake Vista, New Orleans, La., after first being duly sworn, testified as follows:

Mr. Jenner.
You are Edward John Pic, Jr., is that right?
Mr. Pic.
Mr. Jenner.
What is your address, sir?
Mr. Pic.
No. 6 Jay Street, Lake Vista.
Mr. Jenner.
Is that J-A-Y?
Mr. Pic.
Mr. Jenner.
Is Lake Vista a suburb of New Orleans?
Mr. Pic.
Yes; it's on the Lake Pontchartrain frontage.
Mr. Jenner.
Are you aware of the existence of the Warren Commission, Mr. Pic?
Mr. Pic.
Well, I knew, you know, an investigation was started.
Mr. Jenner.
Mr. Pic, the Warren Commission was authorized by Senate Joint Resolution No. 137. That legislation authorized the President of the United States to appoint a Commission to investigate all the facts and circumstances surrounding, and pertinent to, the tragic event of November 22, 1963, which was the assassination of our President John Fitzgerald Kennedy.
Mr. Pic.
I understand.
Mr. Jenner.
Thereafter President Johnson, under Executive Order No. 11130 did appoint that particular Commission, of which His Honor, the Chief Justice of the United States, Earl Warren, is Chairman. That Executive order, pursuant to the legislation, directs the Commission, upon its creation, to investigate all the facts and circumstances surrounding the tragic event of November 22, 1963, and also the subsequent death and course of conduct of Lee Harvey Oswald and of Jack Ruby.
The Commission was authorized to create a legal staff, and one of our duties is the taking of testimony, both in person before the Commission itself and by deposition, such as we are doing here today, of anybody who might have touched the lives of these people in any manner or in any capacity. Do you understand what we are doing now?
Mr. Pic.
Yes; I think so.
Mr. Jenner.
Now, I must confess candidly that up until yesterday I was under the impression that you were deceased, or at least no one knew where you were, and then a witness whom I examined yesterday told me, to my surprise, that you were very much alive?
Mr. Pic.
I certainly am.
Mr. Jenner.
You have been seen occasionally by this witness on the street. He said he had no occasion to speak to you, but that he recognized you. Now, had I known that before, I would have transmitted to you in advance a letter through the general counsel of the Commission, Mr. Rankin, in which you would have been advised of the Commission's authority to take your deposition, and you would have also received, enclosed with the letter, a copy of Senate Joint Resolution 137 authorizing the creation of the Commission to investigate the assassination of President Kennedy; a copy of the Executive Order No. 11130,
