(Testimony of Ray Hawkins)

Mr. Ball.
Did you ever examine them closely?
Mr. Hawkins.
I looked at them and one of them appeared to have a small indentation where it looked like it might have been struck and did not fire.
Mr. Ball.
I think that's all, officer.
Now, this will be written up and you can read it and sign it, or you can waive signature just as you wish--which do you prefer?
Mr. Hawkins.
I would just as soon sign it.
Mr. Ball.
All right, we will have you sign it.
Mr. Hawkins.
All right.
Mr. Ball.
Thank you very much.
Mr. Hawkins.
Will you notify me when you want me to sign it?
Mr. Ball.
We will give you a telephone call.
Mr. Hawkins.
You will give me a telephone call?
Mr. Ball.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Hawkins.
All right.
Mr. Ball.
Thank you very much.

Well, sir; some of that was in there yes, sir. Mr. Griffin took it.
