(Testimony of Mrs. Myrtle Evans)

Mr. Jenner.
As I have told you before, your testimony will not be disclosed other than by the Commission when and if the Commission deems it necessary.
What is your pleasure on that now, Mrs. Evans? Do you want to read and sign your deposition, or do you want to waive that?
Mrs. Evans.
Oh, I will waive it. I have just told what I know about it, and that's all I can tell you.
Mr. Jenner.
You wish to waive the reading and signing and trust to the reporter's ability and competence in transcribing your deposition, is that right?
Mrs. Evans.
Yes.
Mr. Jenner.
All right; thank you again, Mrs. Evans, for appearing here voluntarily, and giving us this information.

Mrs. Evans just left this room after giving her deposition, is that right?
Mr. Evans.
Yes.
Mr. Jenner.
And you live at 1910 Prytania Street, New Orleans, is that right?

Correct.
Mr. Jenner.

Yes.
Mr. Evans.
Well, about 54 years.
Mr. Jenner.
What is your business or occupation, Mr. Evans?
Mr. Evans.
D. H. Holmes; salesman---major appliances.
Mr. Jenner.
How long have you lived on Prytania, at that address?
Mr. Evans.
Let's see---it's going on 15 years now.
Mr. Jenner.
And you are Mrs. Evans' second husband, is that right, sir?
Mr. Evans.
That's right.
Mr. Jenner.
Were you married before?

Mr. Evans.
That's right. I met them for the first time when we were across the lake, around Covington, La.--the three boys and Marguerite, and Pic--no; I mean Ekdahl; that was before she married him.
