neighborhood was somewhat on the seedy side. One time I wascoming home from across the street from a direction I didn'tnormally approach the house from. I had my garbage can out front. Isaw Oswald lift my garbage can cover and throw his trash in mygarbage can. I was angry. It could have occurred other times that Ididn't detect it. Garbage cans were all individually owned, notfurnished by the landlords. I think he had his own can. It wasprobably filled up." Oswald’s landlady, Mrs. Jesse Garner, testifiedthat she watched him stuffing all the garbage cans up and down theblock with his trash. [WC Hearings Vol. X p268] Was Oswald afraidhis garbage might be searched?
DALLAS MAIL FORWARDED TO NEW ORLEANS STREETADDRESS

, Oswaldstarted work at the William B.Reily Coffee Company at 640Magazine Street, oiling coffeegrinding equipment for $1.50 anhour. The CIA reported, “Thefirm W. B. Reily & Co., Inc., for which no address is given, is theSubject of #EE-314. This firmwas of interest as of April 1949.There is, however, noinformation whatever by which the firm can be identified, as being,or not being, that named in Oswald’s address book. The onlyinformation we have regarding the firm is that a James W. Reily wasassociated with it.” My guess is that the CIA was interested in Reilybecause of its international connections or funneled money throughthe Reiley Family Foundation which was known as the LuzianneFoundation in 1949.On

I received a cautionatebut enthusiastic response from V. T. Lee NationalDirector. [WCE 2003]V. T. Lee was sent samples of Oswald’s Fair Play for CubaCommittee literature, but he never authorized him to open a chapter of the Fair Play for Cuba Committee in New Orleans, nor did hesupply him with funds to support his activities there.
