(Testimony of Marvin E. Hall)

Mr. Hall.
part of the waiting period. It was in the early part of the waiting period, and I feel that 3 to 5 minutes was a fairly accurate estimate.
Mr. Hubert.
Did you converse with this gentleman?
Mr. Hall.
Briefly; we shook hands, smiled at each other, and sat there.
Mr. Hubert.
He stayed there until after the shot was fired?
Mr. Hall.
He stayed in the truck until we pulled over across the street and until after the ambulance had gone by.
Mr. Hubert.
I think you said he was in uniform?
Mr. Hall.
Yes; definitely.
Mr. Hubert.
Were there any kind of records kept by your company concerning the movement of the trucks?
Mr. Hall.
Normally; yes, sir. This Sunday morning adventure was such an unusual thing and participated in by two administrators of the company, that we made no formal truck report as you normally would when you come in off a run. We made an informal memo report, I did, and mailed it to our home office in Fort Worth, Monday morning, describing the situation, just for the file.
Mr. Hubert.
Did that report contain any reference to the various times that we have discussed? For example, today, and particularly the time of leaving the terminal and returning to the terminal?
Mr. Hall.
No; it was just a rough informal memo to Mr. Mastin, the president of the organization, putting on paper what we had done.
Mr. Hubert.
Was any charge made to the city for this service?
Mr. Hall.
No, sir; we were available to the city for emergency use. Couldn't very well charge when we don't accomplish our mission.
Mr. Hubert.
Well, I think that is all I have; sir. I now would like to ask you this question so the record may be clear. There has been some informal discussion between you and me since you came in, but I believe, and I ask you whether you concur in this, that all that we discussed informally has been again discussed formally in the sense that it has been recorded?
Mr. Hall.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
All right, sir; I think that is all, and thank you very much indeed.
