(Testimony of Frederick S. O'sullivan)

Mr. Liebeler.
You are a detective on the vice squad? Is that correct?
Mr. O'SULLIVAN. Yes, sir.
Mr. Liebeler.
Are you assigned to a particular aspect of vice activities here in New Orleans?
Mr. O'SULLIVAN. No, sir; there are only nine of us to cover the whole city. Therefore, we handle any vice, gambling, prostitution, homosexuals, handbooks. Anything that comes under the vice laws, we handle.
Mr. Liebeler.
You have never had any contact with Ferrie in connection with your activities on the vice squad? Is that correct?
Mr. O'SULLIVAN. No; Ferric lives or he did live in Jefferson Parish. We have no authority in Jefferson Parish. [Deletion.]
Mr. Liebeler.
Now see if you can recall or think back to your experiences in the Beauregard Junior High School, and tell us if you can remember anything else or if there is anything else that you want to add what you have already said about your knowledge of Oswald and his activities at the time he was at Beauregard Junior High School.
Mr. O'SULLIVAN. Well, I have put quite a bit of thought on this ever since it all happened, especially since I have gotten this correspondence relative to what I know about it, and as much as I would like to help you as much as I can, I just can't think of anything else. I don't want to say something I am not sure of. Well, actually, even if I thought of something, I would tell you and tell you I are not sure, but there is nothing else I can think of.
Mr. Liebeler.
All right. I have no other questions at this time, and if there is nothing else that you want to add to the record, on behalf of the Commission, I want to thank you very much for your cooperation.
Mr. O'SULLIVAN. Yes, sir; thank you.

Mrs. Mildred Sawyer

Testimony of Mrs. Mildred Sawyer

The testimony of Mrs. Mildred Sawyer 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.

Mrs. Mildred Sawyer, 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. The Commission staff members have been authorized to take the testimony of witnesses by the Commission pursuant to authority 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 and told you that we would be in touch with you about the taking of your testimony.

Mrs. Sawyer.
Mr. Liebeler.
And that he enclosed with that letter a copy of the Executive order and the congressional resolution to which I have just referred, and also a copy of the Commission's rules governing the taking of testimony of witnesses. Is that correct?
Mrs. Sawyer.
That is correct. At the time that I spoke to your Mr. Gerrets last night, I hadn't gone through some mail that was in my place and had been picked up by my aunt when she came by and picked up the mail on that Saturday morning, and I hadn't even bothered going through it, because most of the time the mail I have is just bills or some advertisements, and it is very inconsequential, so, as a result, after ,hearing that I was supposed to have a letter, I became a little curious and looked, and I found that there was one.
Mr. Liebeler.
Good. Technically, witnesses are entitled to 3 days' notice before being required to appear. I don't think you had quite 3 days' notice,
