(Testimony of M. W. Stevenson)

Mr. Hubert.
Well, let me correct you. You were interviewed by me Just before the beginning of this deposition?
Mr. Stevenson.
Yes; I was. I answered too quick then.
Mr. Hubert.
That interview took place this afternoon for about an hour a half, I think, immediately preceding the time that we started to take the deposition?
Mr. Stevenson.
That's right.
Mr. Hubert.
You have not been interviewed by any other member of the Commission staff except that interview with me ?
Mr. Stevenson.
No, sir; I have not.
Mr. Hubert.
Can you tell me whether you perceive any inconsistency between the deposition you have given and the interview that I conducted with you prior to the taking of the deposition?
Mr. Stevenson.
No, sir; I don't believe I can see any inconsistency. I did do this at your request, or I say with your permission I looked over some of my notes before the taking of this, and .the only thing that I think was any change made was in answer to Captain Talbert's question as to what the route of transfer would be. I think when I discussed it with you prior to the taking of this deposition, I told you that we told him we thought it would go down Elm. When I reviewed my notes, it was Main Street that we had told him.
Mr. Hubert.
Now do you know of any other material information that was covered in the interview that preceded this deposition which has not been developed during the deposition?
Mr. Stevenson.
No, sir; not that I recall.
Mr. Hubert.
I think that is all unless you have anything else.
Mr. Stevenson.
I don't recall a thing else, Mr. Hubert.
Mr. Hubert.
Thank you very much.
