President's Commission on the
Assassination of President Kennedy
200 Maryland Avenue N. E.
Washirn;1ton, D. C. 20002
ATTN: Mr. J. Lee Rankin
General Counsel

Dear Mr. Rankin:.

Skilled cryptologists at NSA carefully_ examined the materials
relating to the Lee Harvey Oswald case provided by the Warren Com-
mission. 'The.results a(e as follows:

a. A detailed examination of the two dictionaries revealed
no indication of their use for cryptographic purposes.

b. In the correspondence, the Oswald Diary, and the other
documert s examined there were no evidences of the use of any type
of cryptography, to include the use of an open code.

c. Certain letters had been removed. from pages 150 and 152
of the Russian novel, GLAZA KOTORYE SPRASHIVAYUT, "Questioning
Eyes." Eight letters had apparently been cut from page 15 2 ·as follows:

Line 10 Ni
Line 11 :ii. , 0
Line 13 M
Line 16 )1
Line 24 fl
Line 26 1;
Line 27 B

One letter had been removed from page 150; however no significance
is attributed to the removal' of this letter since it corresponds in exact
·i
!
, 'i'_xq.> ,.

-· -
.. .,
. . ·.·· ...
position to one of the letters removed from page 152. It was con-
cluded that this letter hac:l been accidently removed by the cutting
process applied to page 152 and that its ren,oval resulted from the
application of excessive pressure on the cuLting tool when the letter
on page 15 2 was taken out.

The sample is considered too small for any 'rnlid conclusions to
be reached as to the purposes for which the abo,·e noted letters were
removed. It is considered most unlikely th1 t this process of letter
removal has any cry'ptographic implication.

d. The Russian "Tourist" portable radio was examined for
cryptologic evidence. The radio appears to be a normal receiver and
there was no evidence of its use for any other purpose.

e. The names appearing in Lee's and Marina's address
·books were checked. No evidence of cryptologic implication was
found.

Although the results of the examination of the materials provided
by the Commission are essentially negative, further study of these
materials will be made. If any results are obtained, the Commission
will be advised. However, it -is considered most unlikely that any-
thing beyond what is reported above will be discovered.

Sii;i.cerely,
