(Testimony of Dr. Ronald Coy Jones)

Mr. Specter.
Dr. JONES. Yes.
Mr. Specter.
And what is your status on your progress with that, generally?

Dr. JONES. I will finish my formal training in surgery in July of this year, which will complete 5 years of general surgery residency.
Mr. Specter.
How old are you at the present time, Dr. Jones ?
Dr. JONES. Thirty-one.
Mr. SPECTER. Have you discussed this matter with any representatives of the Federal Government prior to today ?
Dr. JONES. Yes, I believe the Secret Service has been here on at least two occasions.
Mr. Specter.
And what did they ask you on those occasions?
Dr. JONES. I think, primarily, to verify that what I had written was true and that I had been one of the first doctors to be in the room with the President.
Mr. Specter.
Did they ask you anything else other than that?

Dr. JONES. On one occasion they asked if there were any other pieces of paper that had been written on as to the care that had been administered to the President that I had not turned in, and I told them "No."
Mr. SPECTER. And did you and I sit down and talk for a few minutes before we went on the record in this deposition, with me indicating to you the general purpose and the line of questioning, and you setting forth the same information which we have put on the record here today?
Dr. JONES. Yes, sir.
Mr. SPECTER. Do you have anything to add which you think might be helpful to the Commission in any way?
Dr. JONES. No, sir.
