(Testimony of Domingo Benavides)

Mr. Belin.
when we were around to see Ted Callaway and he introduced you at Dootch Motors and we chatted for 3 or 4 minutes there?
Mr. Benavides.
Yes; you and two other men.
Mr. BELIN. Today when we met, you came up here and what is the facts as to whether I asked you before the court reporter was able to get here to just relate to me what happened, or did I start questioning you or try to tell you things as I saw them?
Mr. BENAVIDES. No; you just asked me what happened and I described to you what happened.
Mr. BELIN. Is there anything you said before the court reporter got here that is different in anyway that you said after the court reporter started taking your testimony?
Mr. BENAVIDES. Maybe now only in the change of time, or I imagine I added a little bit since she was here.
Mr. BELIN. Is there anything that would be at variance with what you told me before the court reporter got here?
Mr. Benavides.
Well, I don't understand.
Mr. Belin.
What I mean is, is there anything that you said before the court reporter got here that you haven't included after the court reporter got here?
Mr. Benavides.
Mr. BELIN. Anything you have said in front of the court reporter that has been different insofar as being a fact which is opposite or different in anyway from what you told me before?
Mr. Benavides.
Different in wording but---
Mr. Belin.
But are the facts different?
Mr. Benavides.
No; I don't believe the facts are different.
Mr. BELIN. Now you have a right, if you want to, to come back and read the deposition and sign it, or you can just rely on the court reporter's accuracy and waive the signing of it. Do you want to waive it or not?
Mr. Benavides.
I would like to read it.
Mr. Belin.
All right.
Mr. Benavides.
Maybe I could add something I didn't add.

Mr. BELIN. All right, I will ask the court reporter to try and get in touch with you.
Mr. Benavides.
3112 June Drive.
Mr. Belin.
She can reach you at Dootch Motors?
Mr. Benavides.
Dootch Motors.
Mr. BELIN. What is the address?
Mr. Benavides.
501 East Jefferson.
Mr. Belin.
You did get notice of the taking of this deposition here today?
Mr. Benavides.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Belin.
You are here voluntarily appearing in front of the Commission?
Mr. Benavides.
Yes, sir.
Mr. BELIN. Well, we surely appreciate all of the cooperation you have shown here, sir, and if there is anything else that you think is important, we would appreciate your getting in touch with us.
Mr. BENAVIDES. That is the reason I wanted to read this, in case I might have left out something.
Mr. Belin.
Would you please thank whoever is the general manager at Dootch Motors for letting you come here and appear before us?
Mr. Benavides.
That is Mr. Harris.
Mr. Belin.
Thank you very much.
