(Testimony of Eddy Raymond Walthers)

Mr. Liebeler.
After he had been subdued and they got his gun away from him, he said that?
Mr. Walthers.
Yes.
Mr. Liebeler.
If you can't think of anything else that I haven't asked you about, I don't think I have any more questions. I want to thank you very much for coming in and giving us your testimony, especially being as late as it is.
Mr. Walthers.
I'm sorry if I was a little evasive on some of this, but I didn't remember--it's been quite a while now. Of course, I have the statement that I made---immediately following all this, I guess, they sent you a copy of it. It would probably have a little more of the time and dates on it.
Mr. Liebeler.
We have covered the basic points that I wanted to cover and that's all. Thank you very much for coming.

Testimony of James Thomas Tague

The testimony of James Thomas Tague was taken at 8:15 p.m., on July 23, 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.
Would you rise and raise your right hand? 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. Tague.
I do.
Mr. Liebeler.
My name is Wesley J. Liebeler. I am an attorney on the staff of the President's Commission investigating the assassination of President Kennedy.
I have been authorized to take your testimony by the Commission pursuant to authority granted to it by Executive Order 11130 dated November 20, 1963, and joint resolution of Congress No. 137.
Under the Commission's rules of procedure, you are entitled to have an attorney present, and you are entitled to 3 days, notice of the hearing, and you are entitled to the usual privileges so far as not answering questions are concerned.
Since you are here without an attorney, I presume that you are prepared to go ahead without the presence of counsel?
Mr. Tague.
Yes.
Mr. Liebeler.
Would you state your name for the record?
Mr. Tague.
James Thomas Tague.
Mr. Liebeler.
What is your address?
Mr. Tague.
My address is 700 West Euless in Euless, Tex.
Mr. Liebeler.
What is your employment?
Mr. Tague.
I am a salesman for Cedar Springs Dodge.
Mr. Liebeler.
Here in Dallas?
Mr. Tague.
Dallas; yes
Mr. Liebeler.
When were you born?
Mr. Tague.
October 17, 1936.
Mr. Liebeler.
It is my understanding that you were in the vicinity of the Texas School Book Depository Building at the time of the assassination, is that correct?
Mr. Tague.
That's correct; yes, sir.
Mr. Liebeler.
Would you tell us how you happened to be there and what you saw, and what happened.
Mr. Tague.
I was going downtown to pick up my wife---she was my girl that I was going with at the time---to take her to lunch, and I accidentally came upon the motorcade.
I was not, planning to watch the parade or anything. There were several cars stopped in front of me, and I stopped there myself under the triple underpass
