(Testimony of Earle V. Brown Resumed)

Mr. Brown.
Well, that would be the police officers---would be the only ones saw.
Mr. Ball.
Do you know who those officers were?
Mr. Brown.
No, sir; at the time I did, but I wouldn't know now.
Mr. Ball.
Did you see any officer on Stemmons Freeway where we have positioned (1), (2), and (3) on this diagram?

Mr. BROWN. No, I didn't.
Mr. BALL. Now, the place where you marked your location---we will mark that as Brown Exhibits---the X marks the position of Brown, is that correct?
Mr. Brown.
Mr. Ball.
That's all. Thank you very much.
Mr. Brown.
All right.
