COMES NOW JAMES F. WYMORE, who being first duly sworn
upon his oath, deposes and says:

That he is, and at all times mentioned herein was, the
Executive Director of the State Committee of the Republican
Party in the State of Arizona and, as such, he know the following
facts:

That during the campaign of 1972, the State Committee
of the Republican Party in Arizona and the Committee to Reelect
the President established a joint campaign headquarters at
333 West Indian School Road in the City of Phoenix, State of
Arizona.

That early in the morning on Friday, September 29, 1972,
this combined headquarters was totally destroyed by fire with
damage to the building estimated at at least $100,000.00, and
an estimated damage to the contents owned by the Committee to
Reelect and by the State Committee to be a total of no less than
$20,000.00.

That on Thursday, September 28, 1972, the State Committee
had received a warning from the Republican National Committee
Headquarters alerting the State Committee to take necessary
security precautions at its headquarters to avert possible dis-
ruptions and/or protests. That the State Committee did not
have time in which to comply with that warning prior to the
destruction of its headquarters.

An extensive and exhaustive investigation of the fire
was conducted by the Arson Squad of the Phoenix Police Depart-
ment, the Phoenix Fire Marshal, and the Federal Bureau of
Investigation. No arrests have been made.
