SEPTEMBER 24, 1963

"It is interesting to note," wrote Doug Horne, the chief military investigator for the Assassinations Records Review Board (ARRB), in a memo (dated April 16, 1996), that three events — Oswald's departure from New Orleans…Angel–Leopoldo visit to Sylvia Odio in Dallas,…and the Oswald visits to the Cuban Embassy in Mexico City all occur immediately after un-named White House sources report to the press that on September 24, 1963 a final decision was made to visit Texas on a 2-day trip scheduled for Nov. 21–22, 1963…The Secret Service Protective Survey Reports…which were destroyed in 1995, commence with trip files starting on this same date: September 24, 1963."

In an FBI Report Dated 11/25/63, SA JAMES W. BOOKHOUT wrote: On November 22, 1963 Captain J.W. FRITZ, Homicide and Robbery Bureau, Dallas Police Department, furnished photographs of all of the articles contained in the wallet of LEE HARVEY OSWALD at the time of his arrest, November 22, 1963. Said photographs are listed as follows:

1. Membership card of the "Fair Play for Cuba Committee, New Orleans,

Louisiana, in name of L. H. OSWALD, bearing the signature LEE H. OSWALD, issued June 15, 1963, signed by A. J. HIDELL, chapter president………"

"11. Front and back, street map, compliments of Ga-Jo-Enkanko Hotel,

bearing telephone number ED 50755, and figure or telephone number 92463."

[ BK: Can anyone lead me to the WC Exhibits or any assassination records where the photograph of this record of the Ga-Jo-Enkanko Hotel map can be found? ]

It is also noted elsewhere that, "Richard Case Nagell knew an awful lot about Oswald. He once offhandedly mentioned in a letter to Dick Russell that Oswald "once stayed at the Enlisted Man's Kanko Hotel in Tokyo." When arrested in New Orleans on August 9, 1963, and also in Dallas on November 22, 1963, Oswald's wallet contained a calling card from a Japanese hotel, written in Japanese but for the words, "Compliments of the GA-JO-ENKANKO HOTEL - A Special Services Hotel." On the back of the card was handwritten, "ROSA" and the number "92463," which some researchers have interpreted as September 24, 1963, a day on which Oswald's whereabouts are unknown."

Mary Ferrell, in the Mary Ferrell Chronologies – Volume 4 – November 22, 1963

asks the question, "….Was card with 92463 in his wallet or pockets? 9/24/63 – First day OSWALD 'free' in New Orleans. JFK's decision on Texas trip announced? On note 'detained' by NOPD in August."

Besides noting the date September 24 is the date the decision on the Texas trip was announced and that "Ferrie called Chicago WH 4-4970 (same number reaching Lawrence Meyers' friend, she also mentions that the date appears on note when Oswald was 'detained' by New Orleans PD in August.

Indeed, Lt. Francis Martello did notify the Secret Service that he interviewed Oswald after his August arrest, kept notes of the interview and samples of Oswald's literature, and accidently kept a piece of paper Oswald had in his wallet.

Martello writes, "....Oswald was then returned to his cell block.....I then took my notes, along with several copies of the literature of OSWALD, and placed them in this file folder, in the file cabinet. The day after the assassination of PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY, Mr. ADRIAN G. VIAL, U. S. Secret Service, who had spoken to me earlier about 3 a.m. Saturday morning, November 23, 1963, wherein he had obtained information regarding my interview with OSWALD, came to the First District Station on Saturday, November 23, 1963 at about 3 p.m. and told me the Secret Service was conducting an official investigation regarding the assassination of the President of the United States. At the outset of the interview I got out the original file folder on LEE HARVEY OSWALD, opened it and gave Mr. VIAL all of the literature I had obtained from OSWALD, which consisted of some pamphlets, leaflets and booklets put out by the Fair Play for Cuba Committee headquarters."

"Upon going through these pamphlets I discovered a photograph of LEE HARVEY OSWALD which appeared to be a passport photograph, and a small piece of white paper containing handwritten notes on same. This photograph and paper had inadvertently become misplaced with the literature during the interview I had with OSWALD. This piece of paper, which was folded twice and was about 2" by 3" in size, contained some English writing and some writing which appeared to me to be in a foreign language which I could not identify. Before I gave this paper to Mr. VIAL, I made a copy of the information, which is as follows:

FBI Agent John L. Quigley report on interview with New Orleans Lt. Francis Martello.

http://www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/...bsPageId=515474

"The following investigation was conducted by SA John L. Quigley at New Orleans, Louisiana, November 29, 1963.

On August 10, 1963, Lieutenant FRANCIS L. MARTELLO, Platoon Commander, First District, New Orleans Police Department, advised that on August 10, 1963, he interviewed LEE HARVEY OSWALD at the First District Station, New Orleans Police Department, following his arrest on August 9, 1963, for creating a disturbance while distributing Fair Play for Cuba Committee literature on Canal Street, New Orleans.

Lieutent MARTELLO stated during the questioning of OSWALD, he examined contents of his wallet. Among items found in the wallet was a piece of paper which, upon examination, disclosed handwriting and handprinting in Russian as well as English. At the conclusion of the interview, this piece of paper became mixed up in his notes and it was never returned to Oswald since he did not discover it until after Oswald's release.

Lieutenant MARTELLO stated that the original of this piece of paper had been turned over to the Secret Service, New Orleans, Louisiana, however he made an exact reproduction of the contents of this paper and which he furnished to Agent.

A review of this document reflected among other notations thereon, the name of ROBERT, 7313 Davenprot Street and 757 French Street, Murret.

A review of the New Orleans FBI files disclosed that the address 7313 Davenport Street was the former address of ROBERT LEE OSWLAD, brother of LEE HARVEY OSWALD, as furnished to FBI New Orleans by FBI, Dallas, on August 14, 1962.

The address 757 French Street, according to FBI, New Orleans files, is that of Mrs. CHARLES MURRET, who is the aunt of LEE HARVEY OSWALD.

It should be noted on this document appearing in English was "United Press 726681", behind the names "GOLDBERG AND MOSBY, and "Ass. Press 776430", followed by the name "JOHNSON".

Mosby and Priscilla Johnson interviewed Oswald in Moscow shortly after his defection. Goldberg is Priscilla Johnson's editor at NANA, the North American Newspaper Alliance, which distributed Johnson's story on Oswald's defection. He worked under NANA European Editor Ian Fleming and Ernest Cuneo. Goldberg is married to Luciana Goldberg, who famously instigated the Pentagon secretary (Tripp) to surrepticously tape record Monica Lowenski confessing about her affair with President Clinton.

[Howard Weisberg Notes: "This is part of the very large and largely still suppressed File 75. The pages numbered 364-73 only are printed as Exhibit 1942 (23H 736-40). .....This is a copy of the original slip of paper taken from Oswald's wallet by New Orleans Police Lt. Martello on August 10, 1963, is a copy of the copy made by the FBI, its Exhibit D-229. It is here reproduced in its actual size. The copy made by Lt. Martello appears in the preceding file. The Commission never interested itself in Martello's great concern for this slip of paper, so great that he gave the original to the Secret Service the day after the assassination and thereafter, while carefully preserving a copy for himself, gave an additional copy to the Secret Service. These are entries culled from Oswald's pocket address book, to which I laboriously traced them. They are consistent with the establishment of a 'cover'. They seem to connct Oswald with the Soviet Union in an anti-American way, the last thing a genuinely pro-Castroite would want on him when arrested in the United States. It is consistent with Oswald's connection with violently anti-Castro Cubans and the CIA. The Commission's failure – refusal – to investigate this is in accord with its pretense, in opposition to its own unassailable evidence, that Oswald was pro-Soviet and pro-Castro. The initials in the lower right-hand corner of the right-hand piece of paper, or the reverse side of the angle slip in Oswald's wallet, are those of Adrian G. Vial, the Secret Service agent to whom Martello gave it, the date November 23, 1963, the day on which it happened, and the second set of initials seem to be those of Martello."

It's hard to pin point where to begin a chronology of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, but there are few dates that stand out quite as significantly as September 24, 1963.

As Doug Horne points out in the memo, there are number of significant things that occur on, shortly before and immediately after September 24, 1963.

If the assassination of President Kennedy was the random act of a madman, it would be a totally disconnected act, and not fit in with the other historical events of the day, a falicy that the chronologies of the assassination clearly bring out.

The actions and activities of John F. Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald appear divergent, except for their mutual interest in Cuba, but do they converge elsewhere, other than at Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963?

It appears that September 24, 1963 was a big day for both the President and Oswald.

Oswald may have enscribed the date on papers that were found in his possession at the time of his arrest in Dallas on November 22, 1963, and when he was arrested in New Orleans on August 10, 1963.

For Oswald, Tuesday, September 24, 1963 was important because he woke early, before dawn, and abandoned his 4907 Magazine Street apartment in New Orleans owing a weeks rent. Early that morning he stopped by the Department of Unemployment Security claims office and filled out the forms to receive a check (23.715/23:772), and also sent a change of address form to the post office closing P.O. Box 3061 and arranging for his mail to be sent to 2515 W. 5th Street, Irving, Texas, home of Ruth Paine.

The day before Oswald had packed up his families belongings, including the rifle, in Mrs. Paine's station wagon, and while they drove to Dallas, he made his way to Mexico City.

It is also the day, as Mary Ferrell indicates in her chronologies, that David Ferrie or someone in the law office of G. Ray Gill (17 floor, Pierre Marquette Office Building, New Orleans, La.) called the Chicago hotel/apartment of Jean Aase, who also received a call at the same number from Jack Ruby's friend Lawrence Meyers. Aase then accompanied Meyers to Dallas over the assassination weekend. They stayed at the Cabana Hotel, where Jim Braden was also registered when he was arrested as a suspicous person in the Dal-Tex building immediately after the assassination. After being released, Braden traveled to Houston and then New Orleans, where he shared office space with oil geologist Vernon Main, on the 17th floor of the Pierre Marquette office building, just down the hall from G. Ray Gill's office.

While it was an imporant day for Oswald, leaving New Orleans for Mexico City, it was also a busy day for the President.

President Kennedy signs into law a bill (HR12) as the Health Professions Educational Assistance Act, authorizing a three-year, $175 million program of matching grants for construction of facilities to train physicians and other public health personnel. (PL88-129).

President Kennedy signs into law a bill (HR6012) authorizing the President to accept and implement international regulations to prevent collisions at sea. (PL88-131).R5623) replacing the Coast Guard's promotions system from a seniority basis to one in which best qualified officers are promoted. (PL88-130).

After a 32-minute conference with President Kennedy, Secretary of Defense McNamara and Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, flew to Saigon yesterday. (1:5)

President Kennedy names General Wallace M. Greene to succeed General David Shoup, the retiring Commandant of the Marine Corps.

Gen. Shoup does attend the September 24, 1963 meeting of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, during which they are briefed on developing Cuban operations by CIA official Desmond Fitzgerald. (See: Higgins memo).

Also in Washington, William Attwood met today with Robert Kennedy - concerning the backchannel communications with Fidel Castro and Castro's desire for discussions with the U.S.

Alex Rorke and copilot Geoffrey Sullivan leave Miami in a rented twin-engine Beechcraft heading for Honduras for a "lobster-hauling business deal." This same day, they arrive in Merida, Mexico. (Alex Rorke is a photographer, journalist, pilot, rabid anti-Communist, former FBI employee and the wealthy son-in-law of Sherman Billingsley, the celebrity owner of New York's famous Stork Club. Rorke also works closely with Miami millionaire William Pawley, the ultra-right wing who fronts and funds a number of agency operations.

Notes are made today concerning a meeting about Cuba Contingency Plan. The Coordinator asks for a "draft contingency papers" to be transmitted to him by October 1, 1963. He says they should be prepared "in the form of scenarios wherever the subject matter readily lends itself to this treatment." "Attacks against US officials…in the US" dropped from the list because it is considered unlikely.

Early in the afternoon the President visited Midford, Pennsylvania for the opening of the Pinchot Dedication of the Pinchot institute for Conservation Studies in Milford, Pennsylvania

In Milford, Pennsylvania President Kennedy issues a statement following the 80-19 Senate vote to ratify the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty. After a grueling day of cut-and-thrust debate and roll-calls, the Senate cleared the way for a final ratification vote today on the nuclear test-ban treaty. All proposed reservations to the pact were rejected. JFK's limited Test Band passes the Senate today. Eleven Democrats oppossed, all southerners.

Mary Pinchot Meyer, Cord Meyers' wife, accompanies the President and introduces him to her mother, the staunch Pennsylvania Republican. A photograph of them by the helicopters is one of the few of Mary Meyer and the President together and was taken on this day.

Later in the afternoon President Kennedy departs on a 5 day, 11 state trip to visit conservation projects and discuss conservation policy. President Kennedy makes remarks at the airport in Ashland, Wisconsin after a flight over the Apostle Islands in Lake Superior.

President Kennedy addresses delegates to the Dept. of Agriculture sponsored Northern Great Lakes Region Land and People Conference in the field house at the University of Minnesota, Duluth. The President supports economic development of resources in Minnesota, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

JFK departs for Wisconsin this day to make a speech in Ashland, Wisconsin as part of a nationwide conservation tour. It has been speculated that an assassination attempt was to be made during this visit. Lee Harvey Oswald's name is later found in a Wisconsin hotel registry. The signature is later determined not to be LHO's. JFK spends tonight in Duluth, Minn.

The Dallas Morning News, September 26, 1963 states (reporting from Jackson Hole, Wyoming): "White House sources told the Dallas Morning News exclusively Wednesday night that President Kennedy will visit Texas Nov. 21 and 22 … The final White House decision to make the trip to Texas came late Tuesday night [sept. 24], these sources said … "

(23 H 409; 3 H 10; WR 651; Time, December 6, 1963, p. 33A)

Besides noting the date September 24 is the date the decision on the Texas trip was announced and that "Ferrie called Chicago WH 4-4970 (same number reaching Lawrence Meyers' friend, she also mentions that the date appears on note when Oswald was 'detained' by New Orleans PD in August.

The decision was not announced until September 26. The announcement included the information that the decision was made late on the night of September 24. So the September 24 date would have been of immediate importance to conspirators only on the basis of inside information before the announcement. Such inside info would have to come, I assume, from someone like Lyndon Johnson. But even then, since the decision was made late on the night of the 24th, September 25 would seem to be the earliest that word would have gotten around and anything put into play as a result of the decision.

Except from JFK EXHIBIT F-17 (in Connally testimony):

Out of curiosity, I decided to see if there was an entry for the word Ga-Jo-Enkanko, the NARA site did not reveal a hit for anything just entering GA-JO-ENKANKO Hotel, but under a simple search using the word Japan, there were about 120 hits.

I can't really suggest where any correlating documents would be, if any regarding the Hotel, but would merely point out that according to Dick Russell, in a letter correspondence with Richard Nagell, he told him that Oswald had "once stayed at the Enlisted Men's Kanko Hotel in Tokyo."

I have spent a lot of time researching the Japanese connections to the assassination, for lack of a better description. And I am a believer in Nagell's bona fides, besides Dick Russell, Larry Hancock also did some research on him, as you probably know......

There are a couple of things that strike me about all of it, there are the Schrand and Dugan deaths, Dugan if I remember Russell's book correctly postulated that Dugan may have been doubled and died at the hands of a group that was not foreign in any sense of the word, meaning Field Operations Intelligence. Des Fitzgerald, was very much a part of Nagell's account of his assignments, and to tell you the truth, I do not find that very hard to believe.

The last item is a little on the esoteric side, but Russell noted that Professor Fujisawa had written a couple of books, [one was actually a pamphlet] published during WW II and another years later. The pamphlet was On the Divine Mission of Nippon, which promoted the idea of a Nazi-Fascist alignment, and then a book Zen & Shinto: The Story of Japanese Philosophy, Eng. trans. - 1959. The reason I mention this, is that, as Russell wrote in describing the book, that Fujisawa felt that "Japan should refrain from siding politically either with the U.S.A. or with the Soviet Union holding fast to her supreme position transcending all conflicts and divergencies."

I was struck by how accurate that admonition was as far as Japan's foreign policy has been overall since that book was written. Then Russell goes on to mention the Shinto International Academy, which Fujisawa mentioned in his book, in the very next paragraph, Russell picks up his quoting of Fujisawa, from the above paragraph, "as a preliminary step towards the effectuation of this global project," the Shinto International Academy has been established "for the planetary conciousness, while fostering frequent personal contacts between ideologically conflicting parties."

I thought about the interview you did with Arthur Young, when I read that passage.

Also, I don't have the document RIF but one of the Japan documents I browsed admitted that when Oswald was stationed at Atsugi, he did not have the type of security clearance needed to access the only part of the base where classified conversations took place about the U-2 program, the area referred to was JTAG.

And I saved what could be the most compelling information for last. I want you to think really hard about this, on a totally unrelated subject I was searching through WCD 1072 Hyman Rubenstein's Daybook, it begins in January 1963 continuing through the end of the year, call it synchronicity or what have you, but the dates September 20, 1963 through September 25, 1963 were ommitted.......

WC Testimony of Hyman Rubenstein - June 5, 1964....

Mr. Griffin.

When did you begin to work for the Davidson-Uphoff Co.?

Mr. Rubenstein.

Last month.

Mr. Griffin.

I see. So between approximately last January and last month or January 1963 and last month, you were employed for yourself, is that correct?

Mr. Rubenstein.

Practically.

Mr. Griffin.

Practically?

Mr. Rubenstein.

I mean because I haven't done much work since the incidents down in Dallas.

Mr. Griffin.

I see. When you were employed for yourself did you travel in any States other than Michigan?

Mr. Rubenstein.

Yes; Illinois and Wisconsin.

Mr. Griffin.

How much of your time was spent in each of those States?

Mr. Rubenstein.

For one trip complete? In other words, if I had to make a State complete time, how much time would I spend in that State?

Mr. Griffin.

In a typical 3-month period, for example.

Mr. Rubenstein.

I could cover a State in 3 months.

Mr. Griffin.

Do you recall where you were traveling in the fall of 1963, what State?

Mr. Rubenstein.

Yes; I had just come back from Michigan.

Guess it's just one of those strange coincidences.........

Then Russell goes on to mention the Shinto International Academy, which Fujisawa mentioned in his book, in the very next paragraph, Russell picks up his quoting of Fujisawa, from the above paragraph, "as a preliminary step towards the effectuation of this global project," the Shinto International Academy has been established "for the planetary conciousness, while fostering frequent personal contacts between ideologically conflicting parties."

I thought about the interview you did with Arthur Young, when I read that passage.

Also, I don't have the document RIF but one of the Japan documents I browsed admitted that when Oswald was stationed at Atsugi, he did not have the type of security clearance needed to access the only part of the base where classified conversations took place about the U-2 program, the area referred to was JTAG.

WC Testimony of Hyman Rubenstein - June 5, 1964....

Mr. Griffin.

When did you begin to work for the Davidson-Uphoff Co.?

Mr. Rubenstein.

Last month.

Mr. Griffin.

I see. So between approximately last January and last month or January 1963 and last month, you were employed for yourself, is that correct?

Mr. Rubenstein.

Practically.

Mr. Griffin.

Practically?

Mr. Rubenstein.

I mean because I haven't done much work since the incidents down in Dallas.

Mr. Griffin.

I see. When you were employed for yourself did you travel in any States other than Michigan?

Mr. Rubenstein.

Yes; Illinois and Wisconsin.

Mr. Griffin.

How much of your time was spent in each of those States?

Mr. Rubenstein.

For one trip complete? In other words, if I had to make a State complete time, how much time would I spend in that State?

Mr. Griffin.

In a typical 3-month period, for example.

Mr. Rubenstein.

I could cover a State in 3 months.

Mr. Griffin.

Do you recall where you were traveling in the fall of 1963, what State?

Mr. Rubenstein.

Yes; I had just come back from Michigan.

Guess it's just one of those strange coincidences.........

Thanks for that one Robert, I had missed it.

There are probably other September 24th incidents that I'm also missing.

Ruby's other brother Sam owned a dry cleaning business in Chicago and made a phone call or sent a telegram to Havana, which he didn't recall when interviewed about it.

http://www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/...absPageId=79370

Gee Greg, That's terrific!

I wonder what kind of "special services" they provided?

And where's the notation: 92463?

BK

Also please note that Rosa Kuznetsova, the Russian Intourist guide's phone number was apparently 92463.

Out of curiosity, I decided to see if there was an entry for the word Ga-Jo-Enkanko, the NARA site did not reveal a hit for anything just entering GA-JO-ENKANKO Hotel, but under a simple search using the word Japan, there were about 120 hits.

I can't really suggest where any correlating documents would be, if any regarding the Hotel, but would merely point out that according to Dick Russell, in a letter correspondence with Richard Nagell, he told him that Oswald had "once stayed at the Enlisted Men's Kanko Hotel in Tokyo."

I have spent a lot of time researching the Japanese connections to the assassination, for lack of a better description. And I am a believer in Nagell's bona fides, besides Dick Russell, Larry Hancock also did some research on him, as you probably know......

There are a couple of things that strike me about all of it, there are the Schrand and Dugan deaths, Dugan if I remember Russell's book correctly postulated that Dugan may have been doubled and died at the hands of a group that was not foreign in any sense of the word, meaning Field Operations Intelligence. Des Fitzgerald, was very much a part of Nagell's account of his assignments, and to tell you the truth, I do not find that very hard to believe.

The last item is a little on the esoteric side, but Russell noted that Professor Fujisawa had written a couple of books, [one was actually a pamphlet] published during WW II and another years later. The pamphlet was On the Divine Mission of Nippon, which promoted the idea of a Nazi-Fascist alignment, and then a book Zen & Shinto: The Story of Japanese Philosophy, Eng. trans. - 1959. The reason I mention this, is that, as Russell wrote in describing the book, that Fujisawa felt that "Japan should refrain from siding politically either with the U.S.A. or with the Soviet Union holding fast to her supreme position transcending all conflicts and divergencies."

I was struck by how accurate that admonition was as far as Japan's foreign policy has been overall since that book was written.

BK

The report listing the items Oswald had on him when arrested were photographed,

Item 11. "Front and back, street map, compliments of Ga-Jo-Enkanko hotel, bearing telephone number ED 50755, and figure or telephone number 92463."

But they publish only the one side - the map - and I don't see the numbers, so they must be on the back, or am I missing something?

And has the telephone number ED 50755 been traced?

We now know the other figure, which is also on the piece of paper inadvertedly taken from Oswald by Martello, is not a date but most definately a telephone number, the number for Rosa the Intourist guide at the Hotel Minsk.

Now I guess the question is the number on the Hotel map the same phone number in Minsk or is it a date?

I also wonder if there's a connection here with Oswald's dally with the hostess at the Queen Bee?

This is strictly a FYI, but if you search MFF Archive using "Ga-Jo-Enkanko" search results will reveal a book

entitled The Missing Chapter: Oswald in the Far East.

Here is a link that explains the book, apparently he died I located a FOIA request he did from 1979

ROBERT,

That's a classic!

Not only the postcard of the hotel - "US Armed Forces Rest Hotel" and the match books (Sam Spade says matchbooks tell you a lot), but the guy seems to be from Oak Cliff, Dallas. Under "other pictures" by the same photographer - apparently Bill Strause - includes dozens of photos of him and his family in the 20s and 30s in Dallas - Hampton Road and 2312 Waddy Ave. (Oak Cliff?). How odd is that?

There's the photos of Dallas Vice Detective Fred Erler, who must have a Bonnie and Clyde or Dillinger story.

You must have enough feathers for a war bonnet by now.

Was the gajoen-Kanko Hotel in Tokyo, Japan the only one by that name or was there possibly one at Atsugi.

If there was only the one in Tokyo, then that makes it very difficult to believe that Oswald never went there, which, challenges conventionally accepted "facts," about that whole episode, and if you put Oswald in Tokyo, then you are, geographically at any rate placing him closer to a certain scenario that is associated with........

Key factoid

On the day of the assassination, Oswald has a piece of paper in his pocket bearing the telephone number ED5-0755, according to the WC that number was the pay phone located in the lobby of the Rotary Arms Apartments.

http://www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/...mp;relPageId=57

Of course the Rotary Arms Apartments was where Mother Oswald lived, and if I am not mistaken Lee and Marina may have lived there for a very short time, but on the latter I am not sure......
