Baker and it was inventoried and did not contain the Hidell Selective Service card in it, then how come Clements "found in lying on a desk" later Friday evening, and it did have the Hidell SS card in it? Two different wallets? Or did somebody add things to the wallet and then left it lying around on a desk for somebody to conveniently find? Steve Thomas So, did Oswald have his wallet on him or not? http://mcadams.posc.mu.edu/russ/testimony/rose_g.htm Mr. ROSE. There were some people in the office from the Book Depository and we talked to a few of them and then in just a few minutes they brought in Lee Oswald and I talked to him for a few minutes? Mr. BALL. What did you say to him or did he say to you? Mr. ROSE. Well, the first thing I asked him was what his name was and he told me it was Hidell. Mr. BALL. Did he tell you it was Hidell? Mr. ROSE. Yes; he did. Mr. BALL. He didn't tell you it was Oswald? Mr. ROSE. No; he didn't, not right then--he did later. In a minute--I found two cards--I found a card that said "A. Hidell." And I found another card that said "Lee Oswald" on it, and I asked him which of the two was his correct name. He wouldn't tell me at the time, he just said, "You find out." And then in just a few minutes Captain Fritz came in and he told me to get two men and go to Irving and search his house.Mr. BALL. Now, when he first came in there--you said that he said his name was "Hidell"? Mr. ROSE. Yes. Mr. BALL. Was that before you saw the two cards? Mr. ROSE. Yes; it was. Mr. BALL. Did he give you his first name? Mr. ROSE. He just said "Hidell"; I remember he just gave me the last name of "Hidell".Mr. BALL. And then you found two or three cards on him? Mr. ROSE. Yes; we did. Mr. BALL. Did you search him? Mr. ROSE. He had already been searched and someone had his billfold. I don't know whether it was the patrolman who brought him in that had it or not. Mr. BALL. And the contents of the billfold supposedly were before you? Mr. ROSE. Yes. http://mcadams.posc.mu.edu/russ/testimony/stovall.htm Mr. STOVALL. Well, I was scheduled to go to work at 4 that day, I believe, but as soon as I heard that I got cleaned up and got ready for work and went on in. Mr. BALL. Were you given an assignment as soon as you got down there? Mr. STOVALL. No, sir; I wasn't--as soon as I got there. I got there and one of my partners, G. F. Rose, got there about the same time. We were talking to a witness that had seen all the people standing out there--he didn't actually see anything, so we didn't even take an affidavit from him because he didn't see anything. While talking to him, the officers brought Lee Harvey Oswald into the Homicide Bureau and put him into an interrogation room we have there at the bureau. After we finished talking to this witness, we went back there and talked to him briefly. Mr. BALL. Do you remember what was said to him and what he said to you?Mr. STOVALL. I don't recall exactly--I went in and asked him for his identification, asked him who he was and he said his name was Lee Oswald, as well as I remember. Rose and I were both in there at the time. He had his billfold and in it he had the identification of "A. Hidell," which was on a selective service card, as well as I remember.
