(Testimony of Martin Isaacs)

Mr. Isaacs.
Oswald was. She said she was calling Miss Bloomfield, who is her--the field supervisor, and they said that--Mrs. Ruscoll said that she's pretty certain that this is the person that we had met and helped to return to Texas, and it was that--I think it was that telephone conversation that was responsible for her having the case record pulled the very next morning by our central office. Miss Bloomfield works out of central office, and she---the case was no longer there, and she gave it to the commissioner, as I remember it, and, of course, then I read it in the newspaper that the commissioner had given this record to the FBI.
Now, beyond that, I really--I wish I could be more helpful, but I am sorry to say that this is all I know about the case.
Mr. Liebeler.
You have been very helpful, Mr. Isaacs. On behalf of the Commission I want to thank you very much for coming in this afternoon and giving us the testimony and producing the records that you have. It is another example of the way in which the City of New York has cooperated with the Commission and with the FBI in its work. We appreciate it very much.
Mr. Isaacs.
We are only too happy to help.

Pauline Virginia Bates

Testimony of Pauline Virginia Bates

The testimony of Pauline Virginia Bates was taken at 5:32 p.m., on March 25, 1964, in the office of the U.S. attorney, 301 Post Office Building, Bryan and Ervay Streets, Dallas, Tex., by Mr. Albert E. Jenner, Jr., assistant counsel of the President's Commission.
Mr. Jenner.
Mrs. Bates, will you stand and be sworn, please?
Do you solemnly swear in your testimony which you are about to give, to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
Mrs. Bates.
I do.
Mr. Jenner.
It's Mrs. Bates, is it not?
Mrs. Bates.
It's Miss. I'm not married. It's optional--I have been. My name is Pauline.
Mr. Jenner.
Pauline Virginia--isn't it?
Mrs. Bates.
Mr. Jenner.
This is Pauline Virginia Bates.
Mrs. Bates.
I am Albert E. Jenner, Jr. I am a member of the legal staff for the Presidential Assassination Commission and have been authorized by the Commission to depose you--take your deposition, make inquiries of you with respect to the subject matter of the inquiry of the Commission.
Did you receive, oh, last week, I would think, a letter from J. Lee Rankin, general counsel for the Commission?
Mrs. Bates.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
And enclosed with that letter is a copy of the Executive order of President Lyndon B. Johnson on November 29, 1963, Number 11130, and a copy of the Senate Joint Resolution, Number 137, authorizing the creation of the Commission, together with a copy of the Rules of Procedure of the Commission?
Mrs. Bates.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
And, Mrs. Bates, you appear voluntarily at our request?
Mrs. Bates.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Jenner.
The Commission, as you have noted from those enclosed papers, has been ordered, directed to inquire into all facts and circumstances surrounding, leading up to, and those appearing after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the President of the United States, and any contacts on your part with any of the parties.
We understand that you, during his lifetime, had some contact with Lee Harvey Oswald and I think, in fact, transcribed some manuscript notes of his?
Mrs. Bates.
They weren't transcribed; they were copied.
Mr. Jenner.
You copied them?
Mrs. Bates.
