(Testimony of Pauline Virginia Bates)

Mrs. Bates.
Uh-Uh. Well, you couldn't afford to give anybody copies of it.
Mr. Jenner.
Not only can we not afford it, but we would not sell a copy to anybody---other than yourself.
Mrs. Bates.
Oh, no; of my deposition, you mean?
Mr. Jenner.
You may obtain a copy of your deposition by arrangement with the reporter.
Mrs. Bates.
I see what you mean.
Mr. Jenner.
But, you may not do so for somebody else.
Mrs. Bates.
Oh, no; but I mean I want it for my files up at the office.
Mr. Jenner.
And thank you for your time and your cooperation.
Mrs. Bates.
Well, I figured it might help.

Max E. Clark

Testimony of Max E. Clark

The testimony of Max E. Clark was taken at 2:10 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. Wesley J. Liebeler, assistant counsel of the President's Commission.
Mr. Liebeler.
If you will rise and raise your right hand, please, I will place you under oath.
(Complying.)
Mr. Liebeler.
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?
Mr. Clark.
I do.
Mr. Liebeler.
Mr. Clark, 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 11130 dated November 29, 1963, and Joint Resolution of Congress No. 137. I understand that Mr. Rankin sent you a letter last week telling you I would be in touch with you, with which he enclosed copies of those documents plus copies of the rules of procedure pertaining to the taking of testimony. I presume you did receive those documents with that letter, is that correct?
Mr. Clank.
That is right.
Mr. Liebeler.
I want to take your testimony in two basic areas; first, your knowledge of Lee Oswald gained as a result of somewhat limited contact with him, your knowledge of his relations with this so-called Russian community here in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and, two, to some extent, I want to ask you about your knowledge of Mr. George De Mohrenschildt.
Mr. Liebeler.
Would you state your full name, please?
Mr. Clark.
Max E. Clark.
Mr. Liebeler.
You are an attorney?
Mr. Clark.
Yes.
Mr. Liebeler.
A member of the Bar of Texas?
Mr. Clark.
Yes.
Mr. Liebeler.
Any other State?
Mr. Clark.
No, I am licensed to practice in the Federal courts and American Bar Association.
Mr. Liebeler.
And you maintain your offices in Fort Worth, is that correct?
Mr. Clark.
That is correct.
Mr. Liebeler.
What is your home address?
Mr. Clark.
4312 Selkirk Drive West.
Mr. Liebeler.
How long have you been a member of the bar?
Mr. Clark.
Since 1939--now I have to stop and think----
Mr. Liebeler.
That's good enough; that's just fine, and you are a native-born American, Mr. Clark?
