(Testimony of Daniel Patrick Powers)

Mr. Jenner.
A marine by the name of Erwin Donald Lewis?
Mr. Powers.
No, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
I think I asked about Murray, David Christie Murray. Murphy's name was Paul, Paul Edward Murphy.
Mr. Powers.
Yes, yes.
Mr. Jenner.
You remember him in the Far East?
Mr. Powers.
Yes, he was in the same crew that I was in.
Mr. Jenner.
Osborne's first name was Mac, M-a-c.
Well, that completes my examination. And any further reflections which I will ask you to do as you sit there now, can you think of anything that you think might be pertinent here to the Commission in its overall investigation, calling on your experiences during the period that you had contact with Oswald?
Mr. Powers.
No; I don't think there is really anything that I can add. I think that the problem is that there are hundreds of kids running around like him today that can be easily influenced.
Mr. Jenner.
All right. Now, in the taking of these depositions, and you find in most regulations and rules that we adopted, you have the right to read your deposition over and make any corrections in it if you wish, and to sign it. You may waive that, if you wish also.
Mr. Powers.
I waive it; there is no reason why----
Mr, JENNER. As far as you're concerned----
Mr. Powers.
As far as I'm concerned.
Mr. Jenner.
You rely on the accuracy of the reporter?
Mr. Powers.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
Thank you.

Would you stand, please?
Do you solemnly swear that the testimony you are about to give will be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?

I do.
Mr. Ely.
Please be seated. My name is John Ely.

The rules of the Commission require that I give to you a copy of the Executive Order No. 11130, which is the President's order creating this Commission, a copy of the Joint Resolution of Congress, and a copy of the Commission's rules which relate to the questioning of witnesses.
Is it correct to say that I have given you a copy of each of these documents?
Mr. Donovan.
You gave them to me, and I gave them a cursory reading.
Mr. Ely.
Would you state your full name, please?
Mr. Donovan.
