Would you examine those travel vouchers or those airline tickets and tell us, one, did you make the travel; and second, on certain tickets there is a signature. Is that your signature on those tickets?
A. Well, immediately, I know I did not use I did not travel at all during that time.
Is the signature supposed to be up at the top?
Q. The signatures on yellow shuttle flight tickets. Yes; that is supposed to be a ticket.
A. That is not mine, that is not my signature.

Mr. Hays. Just check them all and if you find there is one that you have signed, otherwise you can say you signed none of them, if that is the fact.
Off the record.
By Mr. O'CONNOR: Q. None of the signatures appearing on those airline ticket receipts were made by you?
A. That is right, none of them. Mr. O'CONNOR. Will you please admit these as Derrickson exhibit No. 1 in the records?
