(Testimony of Dr. Fouad A. Bashour)

Dr. BASHOUR. There was a security officer or something called me on the phone one day and said did I write any note besides this note on the chart, and I said, "No." I don't know his name even.

Mr. Specter.
What note was he referring to?
Dr. BASHOUR. This note here.
Mr. Specter.
He asked you if you wrote what?
Dr. BASHOUR. Other notes than this.
Mr. Specter.
If you had any other notes?

Mr. SPECTER. And do you have any other notes other than the one I have just shown you?
Mr. SPECTER Did the Secret Service agent ask you anything else other than that?
Mr. Specter.
And did you talk to any other representative of the Federal Government on any occasion prior to today?
Dr. BASHOUR. No, sir.
Mr. Specter.
And, did you and I talk for a few minutes about the type of questions I would be asking you during this deposition?

Mr. SPECTER. And is the information which you have given me on the record here and written down by the court reporter the same as you told me before she arrived?
Mr. SPECTER. And, will you give me just an outline of your educational background, Doctor?
Dr. BASHOUR. I got my baccalaureate from French Government in 1941--first part. I got my second part, baccalaureate in mathematics and science in 1942, I got my B.A. degree in 1944 from the American University of Beirut, my M.D. degree in 1949, and my Ph.D. in 1957 from the University of Minnesota. I came back to this country in 1959 from the American University of Beirut, as an instructor, and from 1959 to 1963 I jumped from instructor to assistant professor to associate professor in February 1963.
Mr. Specter.
Do you have anything to add which you think will be helpful in any way to the President's Commission?
Dr. BASHOUR No, sir.
Mr. Specter.
Thank you very much for coming, Dr. Bashour.
Dr. BASHOUR. Thank you very much.

Dr. Gene Coleman Akin

Mr. SPECTER.

With that preliminary statement of purpose, Dr. Akin, will you rise and raise your right hand, please?
