WASHINGTON lUPl) Former Presidenl Gerald Ford and the other two surviving members of the Warren Commission insisted Thursday they reached the correct conclusion 14 years ago: Lee H a r v e y O s w a 1 d assassinated John F. Kennedy and Oswald acted alone. Admitting some recently developed information had not been available to the commission. Ford maintained before a House Assassinations Committee hearing, "I do not think our lack of information had any adverse impact on our conclusions." "1 categorically deny that the investigation into the assassination was deficient," he said. "1 have seen no new evidence which would change my view." He said the commission's unanimous findings were: "One. Lee Harvey Oswald was the assassin. "And two. the commission had found no evidence of a conspiracy, foreign or domestic." The other two surviving members of the commission echoed Ford's defense of the panel's independence and conclusions. Former Kentucky Sen. John Sherman Cooper testified "We were not pressured in any way by any person or any organization. We made our own decisions." "We had no rush to judgment." said John McCloy. former U.S. high commissioner in Germany. The commission report "does contain all the essential facts" and "has stood the test of lime." Ford suggested some commission critics and conspiracy theorists were publicity seekers. "Critics who have attained the widest publicity have either deliberately or negligently misled the American people by misstating facts or eliminating facts in their discussions," Ford said.

The former president informed the committee in advance he would not answer questions relating to his tenure as president from August 197-3 to January 1977. Ford defended the commission's dependence for investigative work on the FBI, the CIA and the Secret Service. The Senate Intelligence Committee last year found both the CIA and the FBI had withheld some information from the commission. "In my judgment," Ford said, "the Warren Commission made a proper decision that it was inadvisable to recruit a totally new investigative staff. "And we felt it was far better to employ a limited group of very outstanding lawyers ... to head a staff organization which under f Classified Ads } Get FAST Results! close supervision would work with various investigative agencies of the U.S. government." The commission headed by Chief Justice Earl Warren was established Nov. 29. 1963, by President Lyndon Johnson "to evaluate all the facts and circumstances surrounding the assassination" of Kennedy. The other members were Sen. Richard Hussell, D- Ga,, Hep. Male Boggs, D- La., and former CIA director Allen \V. Dulles. Ford also testified: —He was not a source of leaks from the commission to the FBI as a once-secret FBI memo suggested. —"There was nothing that came from President Johnson or any of his associates in the White House ... to hurry — in an incomplete way — a decision bv 'he Warren Commission." -He did not know of theories at Ihe time about possible Cuban involvement in the assassination, the alleged destruction of a note from Oswald to a Dallas FBI agent, or the possible use of Oswald as a CIA informant. Ford said, however, that had the commission known, it would not have changed its conclusion. TONIGHT-7:15 P.M. I i 1400 BALL HIGH VS. YATES SPONSORED BY...
