(Testimony of Earle V. Brown)

Mr. Ball.
It will be a week or so.
Mr. Brown.
Oh, yes.
Mr. Ball.
Which do you prefer?
Mr. Brown.
What preference do I have?
Mr. Ball.
Well, it will be written up and you can come in and sign it---
Mr. Brown.
Yes.
Mr. Ball.
Or you can waive signature and you don't need to come in and sign is your option; you can do either way.
Mr. Brown.
I will be glad to come in and sign it.
Mr. Ball.
She will notify you. Thanks very much.

Testimony of Earle V. Brown Resumed

The testimony of Earle V. Brown was taken at 2:15 p.m., on April 8, 1964, in the office of the U.S. attorney, 301 Post Office Building, Bryan and Ervay Streets, Dallas, Tex, by Mr. Joseph A. Ball, assistant counsel of the President's Commission.
Mr. BALL. You have been sworn, so we will just continue with your deposition, and your name is Earle V. Brown?
Mr. Brown.
Right; E-a-r-l-e (spelling).
Mr. Ball.
Mr. Brown, I have had a map made here which I would like to have you inspect here. The railroad overpass is shown---that runs in a north and south direction?
Mr. Brown.
Yes.
Mr. BALL. And Stemmons Freeway overpass is shown---that runs north and south, doesn't it?
Mr. Brown.
Right.
Mr. Ball.
Were you on either one of those overpasses?
Mr. Brown.
Either one of those two there?
Mr. Ball.
Yes.
Mr. Brown.
No, sir.
Mr. Ball.
Where were you?
Mr. Brown.
On this overpass here this TP Railroad overpass.
Mr. Ball.
The overpass that runs in an east and west direction?
Mr. Brown.
Right-yes, sir.
Mr. BALL. Now, will you take this pen and draw on there your position on the overpass?
Mr. BROWN. Well, you see, on this overpass, of course, there are the tracks and then there is a railing and then there is a catwalk on each side and we walked the catwalk, and we would come around on each end and we would walk the tracks and come around there.
Mr. BALL. Where were you when you saw the President's car turn on Houston and Elm Street?
Mr. Brown.
I was on the catwalk.
Mr. Ball.
Can you mark your position?
Mr. Brown.
I would be approximately in the center. (Instrument marked by the witness, as requested by Counsel Ball.)
Mr. Ball.
Have you marked the place where you were?
Mr. Brown.
Yes; it would be about the center of that.
Mr. Ball.
Is that where you were when you heard the shots?
Mr. Brown.
Yes.
Mr. Ball.
And did you see anybody out on the railroad overpass?
Mr. Brown.
No, sir; I didn't see anybody there.
Mr. BALL. You don't recall seeing anybody that would either be where Elm goes under the overpass or where Main goes under the overpass---you don't recall seeing anybody?
Mr. Brown.
No; I don't recall seeing anyone there.
Mr. BALL. You told me yesterday you saw some officers.
