I offer this as "B," then. Mark it as "B" so that we have "A" and "B" now.
Officer, this will be written up and submitted to you for your signature and you can read it over and change it any way you wish, or you may waive your signature at this time, which do you prefer?
Mr. Foster.
Well, it doesn't matter.
Mr. Ball.
Suit yourself. You make the choice.
Mr. Foster.
I would just as soon go ahead and sign it.
Mr. Ball.
All right. We will notify you and you can get in here and sign it.
Mr. Foster.
All right.

Mr. BALL. You did permit some railroad employees to remain on the overpass?

Yes, sir.

Mr. BALL. Now, the Commission was established to investigate the facts and circumstances surrounding the assassination of President Kennedy. We want to ask you some questions about information that you might have that might aid us in that investigation.
I am a Staff officer of the Commission named Ball. Joseph A. Ball. I am authorized to administer the oath to you, to make this inquiry. During the course of our investigation in Dallas we discovered that you and the man that you were working with that day, Mr. J. W. Foster, knew of some facts that might aid us in the investigation. We asked Chief Curry if we could have you come up here and testify, and I guess that is the reason you are here. You are willing to testify, are you not?
Mr. White.
Yes, sir.
Mr. BALL. Tell us whatever you know about it.
