(Testimony of Dr. Richard Dulany Brooks)

Mr. Specter.
Then, did you observe any wound in the President's neck at all?
Dr. DULANY. No, I just know that the tracheotomy was in and later I was told that this was a wound when it was first seen--you know, that's the best I can tell you.

Mr. SPECTER. That's fine, Dr. Dulany, thank you very much for appearing here today.
Dr. DULANY. Yes; thank you.
Ruth Jeanette Standridge

Here is a copy of the White House Executive order establishing the Commission, and here is a resolution establishing the rules for taking testimony. Permit me to explain to you that the rules require that we give you 3 days' notice, so that if you would request it now, we could delay taking your deposition until sometime next week, if you would prefer, or if you are agreeable to have us take your deposition, we can go right ahead and take it now.
Miss STANDRIDGE. (reading instruments referred to). Thank you, you can just go ahead if you want to---it's all right with me.
