(Testimony of Dr. Gene Coleman Akin)

Dr. AKIN. Yes; as far as I can remember.
Mr. SPECTER. And before I started to take your deposition, did you and I have a very brief discussion about the nature of the deposition and the questions I would ask you ?
Dr. AKIN. Yes.

Mr. Specter.
And did you give me about the same information, exactly the same information you have put on the record here this morning?
Dr. AKIN. To my knowledge; yes.
Mr. SPECTER. Do you have anything to add which you think might be of assistance to the President's Commission in their inquiry ?
Dr. AKIN. No; I don't think so. I don't know exactly if there is any disagreement or discrepancy in the testimony from the various people who have testified, so I don't know. This is all I saw.
Mr. Specter.
That's fine. Thank you very much, Dr. Akin.
Dr. AKIN. That's all right, thank you.

Dr. Paul Conrad Peters

With that statement of purpose in calling you, Dr. Peters, may I ask you to rise and raise your right hand?
