(Testimony of S. M. Holland)

Mr. Holland.
No; that is about all of it. If I have been of any help, I am tickled.
Mr. STERN. You certainly have. I appreciate very much your coming here today. Our reporter, Mr. Holland, will transcribe your testimony, and you then have the opportunity of reviewing it and signing it, or if you prefer you can waive your signature and she will send it directly to the Commission. Either one, it is entirely up to you, whichever you prefer.
Mr. Morrison.
I prefer that he read it and sign it.

Mr. STERN. Fine. Then the reporter will get in touch with you as soon as his transcript is ready to read.
Mr. MORRISON. I would like to say---now, you will cooperate with the authorities in any way?
Mr. Holland.
I surely will.
Mr. Morrison.
To clear this up?
Mr. Holland.
I sure will.
Mr. Morrison.
And you and have---you and I have been close personal friends for over 10 years, haven't we?
Mr. Holland.
That's right.
Mr. MORRISON. And you wanted me to come down here because you thought you would be nervous, and if I were with you maybe you would be less nervous?
Mr. HOLLAND. That's correct, because I was real nervous when I went over to that sheriff's office that afternoon.
Mr. Morrison.
I believe that is all.
Mr. Stern.
Thank you.
