(Testimony of Anna N. Meller)

Mrs. Meller.
he beat Marina and he did one time, I think even Marina told to me that when they moved in apartment the bulb is burned through and she has to put new lamp in it. He demanded when the master is home the bathtub supposed to be full with water so he can take bath before he sit down to eat and one time he come home and it was dark and she has to put lamp in the room, she did not have time to put water in the tub and he find tub was without water and he beat her.
Mr. Liebeler.
Marina told you that?
Mrs. Meller.
I think she told me that or somebody from our group; I do not recall who, but I remember that and I was shocked. I thought that something must be wrong with man if he is every time running to beat her.
Mr. Liebeler.
You never saw or talked to either Oswald or Marina at anytime after the party at the Ford residence around Christmas time, 1962?
Mrs. Meller.
No, never.
Mr. Liebeler.
Is that right?
Mrs. Meller.
No, sir; never and probably passed 1 year and 2 months since we did not hear or did not know from them anything. When it happened--when the assassination happened, it passed 12 to 14 months.
Mr. Liebeler.
You did not hear that they had moved from Dallas to New Orleans and back to Dallas?
Mrs. Meller.
Nothing; not a word, not a telephone call, or nothing. It was the last time at Ford's family.
Mr. Liebeler.
I don't have any more questions, Mrs. Meller. If you can think of anything else that you would like to add, just go right ahead.
Mrs. Meller.
Would love if I remember but so far I try to think if I did not forget anything. I do not think so.
Mr. Liebeler.
Then we shall terminate the deposition at this time. I want to thank you very much for being so cooperative and coming down and giving us the testimony you have and the Commission appreciates it very much. You have been a very good and gracious witness; thank you very much.
Mrs. Meller.
Thank you very much.

Elena A. Hall

Testimony of Elena A. Hall

The testimony of Elena A. Hall was taken at 5 p.m., on March 24, 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.
Mrs. Hall, would you please rise and raise your right hand. Do you solemnly swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth in the testimony that you are about to give?
Mrs. Hall.
I sure do.
Mr. Liebeler.
Mrs. Hall, my name is Wesley J. Liebeler. This is Albert Jenner. We are both of the legal staff of the President's Commission investigating the assassination of President Kennedy.
The Staff has been authorized to take testimony from you and from other witnesses by the Commission pursuant to authority which has been granted to the Commission by Executive Order 11130 dated November 29, 1963, and Joint Resolution of Congress 137.
It is my understanding that Mr. Rankin, general counsel of the Commission sent you a letter last week and included copies of those two documents, as well as a copy of the rules of procedure pertaining to the taking of testimony. Did you receive that letter?
Mrs. Hall.
Mr. Liebeler.
With that letter were included copies of those documents referred to, isn't that correct?
Mrs. Hall.
Mr. Liebeler.
We want to question you today about your knowledge of Lee
