(Testimony of Mrs. Arthur Carl (Gladys J.) Johnson)

Mr. Ball.
I think that's all. Now, you can look this over and sign it, if you wish, or you can waive your signature and we will have it written up and send it on to Washington.
Mrs. Johnson.
How is this?
Mr. Ball.
If you wish, we will have this written up and you can read it over and sign it or you can waive signature, if you wish, and you won't need to read it over and Sign it. What do you prefer?
Mrs. Johnson.
I would think that you people of course, the way I worded it, it probably sounds terrible.
Mr. Ball.
I thought it sounded very good.
Mrs. Johnson.
I put it just as straight as I could because we did know such a little about this man but you know I have rented rooms a long time and find people, around boys, especially, about this age, some of them are shy. They don't prefer a lot of yakking and you will get-to where, actually, you appreciate a person that goes in his room and takes care of his own business rather than sit around and quiz and ask personal questions and wants to change from one television program to another. You get tired of that.
Mr. Ball.
Are you satisfied to waive your signature, Mrs. Johnson?
Mrs. Johnson.
Why, yes.
Mr. Ball.
And leave it just as you said it?
Mrs. Johnson.
I have said the truth, nothing but the truth.
Mr. Ball.
Then, you won't have to sign it. We will send it on to the Commission this way.
Mrs. Johnson.
I have told you the truth.
