Q. The G.A.O. audit of your travel during the 89th Congress was unable to turn up any record of your transportation to and from Miami for the period we have been talking about. Can you account for the absence of any record of your travel?
A. No, I cannot.
Q. Did you travel on that occasion on an air line ticket purchased with Committee funds?
A. I would assume so.
Q. Mr. Schwartz, I now hand you what has been marked “Witness Schwartz Exhibit Number 4" for identification, being a spread sheet prepared by G.A.O. showing the partial results of the audit of your travel and specifically reflecting the trips we have discussed here today and also showing certain travel by air where where part of the air line ticket has not been used or returned for refund according to air line records. Would you examine the exhibit and tell us whether you have any objection to the exhibit being introduced into the record at the hearings which the Special Subcommittee on Contracts of the Committee on House Administration will hold beginning December 19? A. I have no objection to this exhibit being introduced into the hearing record.

A. I do recall it, but I cannot remember what was connected with it at the time. As I told you before, I did not even remember signing the voucher.
Mr. Hays. But you did go to New York and return and the claim is for a trip that you actually made.
