(Testimony of Mrs. Bennierita Smith)

Mrs. Smith.
There were rumors that some of them took dope. Of course, I don't know how true it is, but that is what they say.
Mr. Liebeler.
You never had any knowledge of anything like that or heard any rumors about that at Beauregard, did you?
Mrs. Smith.
No; I never have.
Mr. Liebeler.
If you can think of anything else about Lee Oswald that I haven't asked you about, we would appreciate it very much if you would set it forth on the record now. Can you think of anything else that we haven't covered?
Mrs. Smith.
There isn't anything else I can think of.
Mr. Liebeler.
I have no other questions at this point. I do want to thank you for coming down and cooperating with us to the extent that you have, and, on behalf of the Commission I want to thank you very much.

Frederick S. O'Sullivan

Testimony of Frederick S. O'sullivan

The testimony of Frederick S. O'Sullivan was taken on April 7-8, 1964, at the Old Civil Courts Building, Royal and Conti Streets, New Orleans, La. by Mr. Wesley J. Liebeler, assistant counsel of the President's Commission.

Frederick S. O'Sullivan, having been first duly sworn, was examined and testified as follows:

Mr. Liebeler.
My name is Wesley J. Liebeler. I am a member of the legal staff of the President's Commission investigating the assassination of President Kennedy. Staff members have been authorized to take the testimony of witnesses by the Commission pursuant to authority granted to the Commission by Executive Order No. 11130, dated November 29, 1963, and Joint Resolution of Congress No. 137.
I understand that Mr. Rankin wrote to you last week telling you that I would be in touch with you concerning the taking of your testimony, and that he enclosed with his letter a copy of the Executive order and the joint resolution just referred to, as well as a copy of the rules of procedure of the Commission relating to the taking of testimony of witnesses. Did you receive the letter?
Mr. O'SULLIVAN. Yes, sir.
Mr. Liebeler.
The documents I referred to were enclosed with it; were they not?
Mr. O'SULLIVAN. Yes, sir.
Mr. Liebeler.
One of the things the Commission is interested in is the background of Lee Harvey Oswald, the alleged assassin, to the extent that knowledge of his background can assist the Commission in evaluating Mr. Oswald's possible motive, if it is true, as it was alleged, that he was the assassin. Before we get into the knowledge that you may have of Oswald, would you state your full name for the record.
Mr. O'SULLIVAN. Frederick Stephen Patrick O'Sullivan.
Mr. Liebeler.
What is your address, Mr. O'Sullivan?
Mr. O'SULLIVAN. 413 Heritage Avenue, Gretna, La.
Mr. Liebeler.
You are a member of the New Orleans Police Department, as I understand. Is that correct?
Mr. Liebeler.
You are a detective on the vice squad?
Mr. O'SULLIVAN. Right.
Mr. Liebeler.
How long have you been with the New Orleans Police Department?
Mr. O'SULLIVAN. Six years.
Mr. Liebeler.
You were born here in New Orleans? Is that correct?
Mr. O'SULLIVAN. I was.
Mr. Liebeler.
And how old are you now?
Mr. O'SULLIVAN. Twenty-six.
