Cason was the widow of Jack C. Cason, who was president of the Texas School Book Depository in 1963. The Casons, a conservative family, feared for President Kennedy's safety during his visit to Dallas. Recorded September 29, 2005.
In the Spring of '61, Gladys Cason had gotten drunk and told dinner guests that "someone should shoot President Kennedy".
Jack Cason had been a former Commander of the American Legion, Post #53 in Dallas.
The American Legion Contact Program was uncovered by the Church Committee. It ran from 1940 to 1954. This program used Legion members as confidential sources on subversive matters. Even though the program officially ceased in 1954, FBI Field Offices were instructed to maintain contact with American Legion officials in their areas.
(Somewhere in there is the real story of Joe Molina...)
It is noted in The Establishment in Texas Politics: The Primitive Years, 1938-1957 that in 1945, there had been correspondence between Cason and LV Ulrey, a politician associated with Gerald LK Smith.
The Pappy O'Daniel mentioned was a Dixiecrat, anti-segregationist radio host, musician and bible thumper. He was also the only person to ever defeat LBJ in an election...
Through his radio show and music, he was in tight with Ruby friend, Bob Willis.
I should add that the "anti-violence" bill pushed by Ulrey and O'Daniel (based on a Smith suggestion) was actually a bill aimed at outlawing strikes and picketing.
Australians don't mind criminals: It's successful bullshit artists we despise.
The Cold War ran on bullshit.

seems that local hoodlum-types had a sixth sense for where the Dallas-area perpetrators were located.
