Judge Hughes: There was a little road that turned off to the right. There were some police officers stationed there. I had seen them and they knew me. Campaigning with police officers is always something you must do because you know they’ve got a vote.
So I knew who they were. I told them what I wanted and one of them who was on the motorcycle went out to the plane to check and then led me in in the car. I met—as I got out of the car-
Interviewer: You drove right up to the ramp?
Hughes: Close to it, yes. As I got out Chief [Jesse] Curry was there (he’s the chief of police) and he said “Mr. Sanders wants you to call him.” Well, I knew that Barefoot had the oath by then, but I said “Well, I know what the oath is.” So in place of calling him I went on up the ramp.
And somebody, I don’t know who it was, met me and I then said “I don’t need the oath of office; I know what to say.” But in just a moment somebody handed me a copy of the oath. I understand that someone had telephoned to the Attorney General and had gotten a copy of the oath.
I wasn’t told that but anyway I was handed it.
Interviewer: Barefoot didn’t dictate it to someone.
Hughes: No, he didn’t dictate it. And then somebody handed me a book and said “This is a Catholic Bible.” I walked on into the second compartment and there were a lot of people there; the Vice-President and Mrs. Johnson were there and neither—none of us said anything.
I embraced both of them and then the Vice-President said, “Mrs. Kennedy wants to be here. We’ll wait for her.”
Interviewer: She hadn’t come from the hospital?
Hughes: She had come from the hospital and was in the rear of the airplane. So we waited a few minutes and she did come out and he, Vice-President Johnson, told her to stand on his left and Mrs. Johnson on his right. And I leaned over to her and said “I loved your husband very much.”
Mr. Johnson turned to her and told her who I was; that I was a district judge who had been appointed by her husband. Then I repeated the oath of office and the Vice-President repeated it after me, he had his hand up—one hand up, and the other on this book.” —
I just turned in my last essay of this degree. Now I am sitting on my bed, totally zonked, listening to the wind try to break my window down. Yeah buddy!!!!
