(Testimony of Alwyn Cole)

Mr. Cole.
That is a possibility. I think most people find the act of writing, especially writing a signature, a pleasant thing to do. I think that is one reason why people develop a somewhat higher skill.
Mr. Mccloy.
It depends on whether it is an endorsement of a check or a drawing of the check.
Mr. Cole.
That could make a difference.
Mr. Mccloy.
Well, thank you very much.
Mr. Cole.
Yes, sir.
(Whereupon, at 2:30 p.m., the President's Commission recessed.)
Mr. Cole.
