(Testimony of George Jefferson , Jr. Applin)

Mr. Ball.
You don't have to if you don't want to. In other words, but you may if you want to.
Mr. Applin.
I can sign it. If I sign it then you won't have any trouble with it, will you?
Mr. Ball.
Well, no.
Mr. Applin.
Well, then, I will sign it for you then.
Mr. Ball.
Okay, fine, that is all, Mr. Applin.
Mr. Applin.
But, there is one thing puzzling me.
Mr. Ball.
What is that?
Mr. Applin.
And I don't even know if it has any bearing on the case, but there was one guy sitting in the back row right there where I was standing at, and I said to him, I said, "Buddy, you'd better move. There is a gun." And he says--just sat there. He was just back like this. Just like this. Just watching.
Mr. Ball.
Just watching the show?
Mr. Applin.
No; I don't think he could have seen the show. Just sitting just like this, just looking at me.
Mr. Ball.
Did you know the man?
Mr. Applin.
No; I didn't.
Mr. Ball.
Ever seen him since?
Mr. Applin.
No, sir; didn't. I tapped him on the shoulder and said, "Buddy, you'd better move," and----
Mr. Ball.
Were you scared?
Mr. Applin.
Well, when I seen the gun I was.
Mr. Ball.
Did you tell the police officer about this man?
Mr. Applin.
No, sir; at the time, I didn't think about it, but I did tell--I didn't even think about it when I went before the Secret Service man, but I did tell one of the FBI men about it.
Mr. Ball.
Okay. I guess that is all, Mr. Applin. Thank you very much.
Mr. Applin.
All right.
