(Testimony of Jack Edwin Dougherty)

Mr. Dougherty.
Well, whatever you want to do---it doesn't make any difference.
Mr. Ball.
Would you like to come down and read it over and sign it?
Mr. Dougherty.
Well, if you've got time I'll sign it now.
Mr. BALL. Well, we have to write it up---this has to be written up and it will be so that you can read it. This young lady will notify you and you can come down and read it over and sign it. Will you do that?
Mr. Dougherty.
All right.
Mr. Ball.
And we will mark these statements as Dougherty Exhibits Nos. A, B, and C, and attach them to your deposition. Thank you very much, and goodby.
Mr. Dougherty.
That's quite all right---thank you.
