(Testimony of Richard L. Saunders)

Mr. Hubert.
You also mentioned as a characteristic of him that he seemed to have respect for authority?
Mr. Saunders.
Well, in the word "authority" is taken possibly out of context. I should say--well, it's almost the name dropping--anyone with any degree of notoriety.
Mr. Hubert.
And that would include of course people who had actual authority.?
Mr. Saunders.
Right.
Mr. Hubert.
Did he ever say anything concerning any underworld associations he might have had?
Mr. Saunders.
None whatsoever.
Mr. Hubert.
Did he express any opinion with regard to them ?
Mr. Saunders.
No.
Mr. Hubert.
There was no name dropping there ?
Mr. Saunders.
No.
Mr. Hubert.
Or in that area?
Mr. Saunders.
None whatsoever.
Mr. Hubert.
Did he ever express to you any sensitivity or consciousness about his Jewish background or the position of the Jew in society?
Mr. Saunders.
No; not that I recall Many people that I call on are Jewish, in my particular phase of business, and this area is very commonplace with me and never taken offense at or was there any reason to bring it up.
Mr. Hubert.
Did he ever express any sensitivity in that area, or did you observe any?
Mr. Saunders.
No.
Mr. Hubert.
Now, by way of closing this interview, I will ask you first of all if you have anything else you want to say ?
Mr. Saunders.
Not that I can recall. I feel the statement pretty well covers any pertinent facts that I might be aware of.
Mr. Hubert.
Now, there has been a very slight bit of conversation between us prior to the time this interview began, but I want to ask you whether in that slight conversation there was anything covered or mentioned that has not been recorded during the course of the interview?
Mr. Saunders.
None whatsoever.
Mr. Hubert.
Thank you very much, sir.
Mr. Saunders.
Thank you. I appreciate your time.
Mr. Hubert.
That's all right, and I'm sorry to have kept you waiting.
Mr. Saunders.
That's all right. Thank you again.
Mr. Hubert.
All right. Thank you.
