(Testimony of Bruce Ray Carlin)

Mr. Carlin.
with and quit having to come back up here and be embarrassed by my landlord being asked by the federal agents about where I am and questions about me and my friends.
I know it is a job that had to be done, and I feel like I've been questioned and investigated, and I don't care how much they investigate me, but this is enough, and I think it's time now to be left alone.
Mr. Hubert.
We certainly appreciate your feelings. Let me make this statement to you--the fact that you've been recalled is by no means for the purpose of harassing you.
Mr. Carlin.
Oh, I understand that.
Mr. Hubert.
It's just simply that sometimes little points develop that we didn't know about at prior times, and it's just an effort to do it right.
Mr. Carlin.
I understand that. I know everyone is doing their job and I realize that I told you things today that I didn't remember the first time I was here.
Mr. Hubert.
With respect to your loss of pay, of course, I don't think the Government can make that up to you, but there is a per diem which you are entitled to for appearing-- Mr. CARLIN. No; I don't expect them to.
Mr. Hubert.
And if you will check with Mr. Conkle of the Secret Service, I think he can arrange to have you receive the per diem, so you may check with him. I don't know whether it will be material or not but you might check with him.
CARLIN. Well, I'm not asking anything from the Government. I know I had a job to do and I think I've told you all I know.
Mr. Hubert.
But under the law you may be entitled to some stipend, and we want you to have it.
Mr. Carlin.
Well, I have contacted my lawyer here again and he said, "Go again and try to explain to them the situation that you're in." It has made it hard. I was making good money up until this started and it seems that I can't stay anywhere long that they don't recognize her, or an agent is asking questions, or the word gets around as to who I am and who my wife is, and this always means--well, it's jeopardizing my family, and it's nobody's fault but ours, but we're trying to live it down and we can't do it if things like this keep coming up.
Mr. Hubert.
Well, I'm sure the Commission will take that into account. I don't know whether you will be interrogated again--probably not--but I can assure you that if it should come about, it is because it would be absolutely necessary.
Mr. Carlin.
Mr. Hubert.
We really appreciate your position and thank you very much.
Mr. Carlin.
Okay, sir. Glad to have seen you.
Mr. Hubert.
All right. Thank you.

Mrs. Bruce Carlin
