(Testimony of Eddie Piper)

Mr. Piper.
Saturday.
Mr. Ball.
Did you go to the sheriff's department?
Mr. Piper.
I went to the county---yes, sir.
Mr. BALL. And did you tell them at any time that you saw Lee about 12 o'clock?
Mr. Piper.
Yes.
Mr. Ball.
And that Lee said, "I'm going up to eat?"
Mr. Piper.
He said either "up" or "out"---that's the way I reported it.
Mr. Ball.
That's what you told them?
Mr. Piper.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Ball.
Now, on that day, did you tell them that the shots that you heard seemed to come from inside the building?

Mr. PIPER. Yes, sir.
Mr. Ball.
You did tell them that?
Mr. Piper.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Ball.
Was that your best impression then?

Mr. PIPER. Yes; they seemed like they did come from the building, you know, by the vibration of that window---it seemed like nobody had shot in the window from the outside---it might have been coming from the building-is what I figured.
Mr. BALL. You told them that day that you thought it came from inside the building?
Mr. Piper.
Yes.
Mr. Ball.
From inside the building?
Mr. Piper.
Yes.
Mr. Ball.
Now, this statement you made to the sheriff's department, I'll show it to you--that's a copy there and is that your signature?
Mr. Piper.
Yes; that's my signature.
Mr. Ball.
We'll attach that as Exhibit A to your deposition.

(Instrument marked by the reporter as "Piper Exhibit No. A," for identification.)
Mr. Ball.
This deposition will be written up and you can come down here and look it over and sign it, if you wish.
Mr. Piper.
All right.

Mr. BALL. Or, you can waive your signature, just as you wish. Do you have any choice which had you rather do?
Mr. Piper.
Well, what is supposed to be done---I don't really quite understand?
Mr. Ball.
You can do it either way. You see, we are going to write it up--- this young lady will write it up and if you want to come down and sign it, you can come down and sign it, or you don't need to sign it. You can waive your signature and we will send it on as it is written up. It is up to you which you would rather do.
Mr. PIPER. Well, I can sign it, but I don't know when I am supposed to come back to sign it.
Mr. BALL. Well, you will be notified.
Mr. Piper.
All right. I'll do that.
Mr. Ball.
All right, she will call you and ask you to come back and sign it.
Mr. Piper.
All right, I'll come back and sign it.
Mr. Ball.
All right, thank you very much.
Mr. Piper.
Thank you.
