(Testimony of Mrs. Frank H. (Valentina) Ray)

Mrs. Ray.
want to go so he gave up on her but he has always been very, very helpful with people.
Mr. Liebeler.
Did you ever get the feeling Oswald was resentful--thought Bouhe and these other friends of Bouhe were trying to interfere with his marriage?
Mrs. Ray.
I do not know whether he was resentful about that. I do not think he liked it too well but what would we do? See another Russian thrown out in the street. We had to help her; it was not interference with the marriage. It was necessity of keeping roof over her head and food for her baby.
Mr. Liebeler.
My question was did you ever have any feeling that Oswald resented the help; do you think it was just because he was resentful of taking things from people or do you think these people were trying to interfere with his marriage is what made him resentful?
Mrs. Ray.
I think he resented taking things from people because when she went back with him he was very unfriendly when I brought clothes to the house. I think he resented more people just gave them anything. He resented any kind of help, I think. I got the impression he was a bitter man because, I imagine when he defected to Russia, it was comedown. He expected them to give presidency job; he was American and should have a job like that and I think his hopes went down drain. He seemed like bitter man to me. He thought he wasn't getting his full share of things he should be getting and I do not know what that could be and I really did not know him well enough to add anything else to it because I spent, all in all, I don't think I spent an hour actually talking to him alone.
Mr. Liebeler.
If you cannot think of anything else that you think you would like to tell us, I have no further questions.
Mrs. Ray.
I do not know.
Mr. Liebeler.
Can you think of anything else?
Mrs. Ray.
No; I cannot think of anything.
Mr. Liebeler.
I want to thank you very much for coming down.
Mrs. Ray.
You are certainly welcome.

Mrs. Igor Vladimir Voshinin

Testimony of Mrs. Igor Vladimir Voshinin

The testimony of Mrs. Igor Vladimir Voshinin was taken at 11:35 a.m., on March 26, 1964, in the office of the U.S. attorney, 301 Post Office Building, Bryan and Ervay Streets, Dallas, Tex., by Mr. Albert E. Jennet, Jr., assistant counsel of the President's Commission. Robert T. Davis, assistant attorney general of Texas, was present.
Mr. Jenner.
Mrs. Voshinin, will you stand and be sworn, please?
Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth in this deposition which we are about to take?
Mrs. Voshinin.
I do.
I want to add only that I will--some of my statements---or even the majority of it, will be to the best of my knowledge.
Mr. Jenner.
Yes; we don't expect you to say any more than that. And, as a matter of fact, we would appreciate it that you would indicate as you testify that which you know of your own knowledge and that which came to you by rumor or that which came to you by way of statement made to you by somebody else as to what somebody else had said or done---which we call hearsay.
Mrs. Voshinin.
All right. And something else---some of the statements, they might have been made such a long time ago that they won't be entirely correct. The sense will be correct, but not the exact words. You realize that?
Mr. Jenner.
I do--but you're going to give us the best recollection you have?
Mrs. Voshinin.
Mr. Jenner.
We don't expect any more.
Mrs. Voshinin.
All right.
Mr. Jenner.
We don't want any speculation on your part----
