(Testimony of Capt. Glen D. King)

Mr. Hubert.
Now, I think you have read this galley proof?
Captain KING. I have yes.
Mr. Hubert.
Addressing ourselves now to pages 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11, which is the body of your speech, would you say that this is a correct report of what you said?
Captain KING. I'm sure it is--yes--as I said, I did not read this. I had a prepared text there that I actually didn't particularly follow. I spoke more ex-temporaneously then, and I can't remember exactly my wordage on it, but there is nothing in there I think that I did not say. There is nothing incorrect there.
Mr. Hubert.
Turning to page 17, it appears that a Mr. Black asked you to comment on a point, and there is printed on this galley proof on page 17 what purports to be your comment, and I think that you told, me that you wanted to make some correction as to that comment?
Captain KING. Only in one word only. My answer as listed on this--
Mr. Hubert.
On page 17?
Captain KING. On page 17--it is written here, "I think it probably would be improper for me to comment on this even before the other members of the panel," and I think what I said there, and certainly what I would have intended to say, is, "I think it probable that it probably would be improper for me to comment on this even more than the other members of the panel."
Mr. Hubert.
In other words, your thought was that nobody should comment on it, and you least of all?
Captain KING. Me least of all--yes.
Mr. Hubert.
On other pages there are comments that appeared by you and I understand from what you tell me that these this galley proof fairly represents what is correct as to what you said, as far as you can remember?
Captain KING. Yes.
Mr. Hubert.
Now, I would like the record to show that this galley proof shows some corrections made apparently by some editorial process, and at other places there are some apparent typewriter corrections and some words changed or added by pen and ink and that these various changes and comments were not made by me or by Captain King but are in the same condition as were received by me from the American Association of Newspaper Editors in this way, that by letter dated May 26, 1964. Mr. Gene Giancarlo, G-i-a-n-c-a-r-l-o [spelling], addressed a letter to Mr. Barefoot Sanders, U.S. attorney, enclosing this galley proof, and that Mr. Sanders handed this to me this morning.
Captain KING. Yes.
Mr. Hubert.
All of these comments being relative to Exhibit No. 4. Captain King, is there anything you would like to add to what has been said?
Captain KING. I think not.
Mr. Hubert.
Immediately prior to the beginning of this deposition, I had a short conversation with you in which I showed you the various documents that were introduced. The rules of the Commission require that I now ask you if there was any discussion between us concerning those documents or anything else that is not covered in the deposition?
Captain KING. I recall nothing that was said before that was not covered after the deposition was begun.
Mr. Hubert.
And there is nothing inconsistent between what we spoke of before and what was covered in the deposition?
Captain KING. No inconsistencies.
Mr. Hubert.
Thank you very much, Captain.
Captain KING. Thank you. This is not of any particular value this that I have here but this is what I had prepared.
Mr. Hubert.
Let's get this in the record, Captain, that you have referred to a prepared speech that you went to the American Society of Newspapers conference with, as to what you have already testified, that you used this as a basis but actually spoke largely extemporaneously.
Captain KING. That's correct, sir.
Mr. Hubert.
You have also indicated to me that I may introduce this prepared copy of the text for whatever it is worth?
Captain KING. Yes; sir.
Mr. Hubert.
And I will do that and mark it for identification as follows, to
