298   Most Texas Employment Commission records relating to Oswald





On Monday morning, September 23, 1963  as Ruth Paine and Marina were preparing
to leave New Orleans, Mr. Olin Benjamin Hamilton telephoned the Texas Employment
Commission (TEC). Hamilton requested that applicants for the position of warehouseman
be referred to his company, Semtner Drug Depot (2416 South Central Expressway,
Dallas), for possible employment. One of the applicants sent by the TEC was Lee
Harvey Oswald, who he remembered as a white American, age 27, 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-8,
slender build, dark hair, and wearing a suit.




(From the FBI report on the Hamilton interview)


When Hamilton told Oswald that warehousemen were paid $1.35 per hour,
Oswald said that he would not take less than $1.50 per hour as he had a wife and two
children to support (Oswald's 2nd child, Rachel, was not born until October 20). Lee Harvey
Oswald failed to make a good impression with Hamilton, who remembered that he was
arrogant and unfriendly.


NOTE: The TEC office that interviewed applicants for warehouse positions was the
industrial office at 1206 Ross Blvd. Nobody from this office, including Harry Sanderson
who remembered Oswald, was interviewed by the Warren Commission. Most of the TEC
records relating to Oswald disappeared after they were turned over to the FBI, and none
of the surviving documents show that Oswald was referred to the Semtner Drug Depot.

(John Amstrong, Harvey & Lee, p. 601)

299          "The Estes Tapes"




“From his own words, its obvious that, as stated above, a convicted felon and liar like
Estes—who was actually conviced of fraud twice-- had personal motives to implicate a
dead President in the murder of JFK. Therefore we cannot take for granted the word of
someone with a damaged reputation, little credibility, a criminal past and evident
personal self-interest like Billie Sol Estes. In furtherance of this, if, as he said in his
book (pgs 138, 143, 150, 152-3, 165) he had tapes of Carter talking about his carrying
out LBJ’s orders in the Kennedy murder, he could make a million selling them. He never
did so. And the reason he says he has tapes is probably to neutralize the fact that there
is no other credible corroboration for his late arriving story.”

I believe that Estes became a honest man while in prison......   There's no doubt that he was a scoundrel on LBJ's pirate ship ...but he saw the light.

I KNOW that Billie Sol Estes went and talked to Marina shortly before he died....  I've never learned what he told Marina.
