Mr. McCLOY. Why don't I swear you, Mr. Carswell?
Raise your right hand.
Do you solemnly swear the testimony you will give in this hearing will be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
Mr. McCLOY. You give your name for the record.
Mr. CARSWELL. Robert Carswell. Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Treasury. My address is 3022 Q Street NW., Washington.
Mr. McCLOY. I think it might be well, Mr. Carswell, if you simply indicated some of it, in response to the last question, namely, as to whether or not there was security provided for the Speaker, who is next in line for the Presidency, and perhaps in view of your duties as Assistant to the Secretary of the Treasury you might have some information upon that which would be helpful to us.
Mr. CARSWELL. Yes. After the assassination in Dallas, the Secret Service initiated protection of the Speaker.


The Secretary of the Treasury spoke with the Speaker, and agents were assigned to him. I am not qualified to say exactly the number of agents or the duties they perform but in general they provide protection comparable to that previously provided to the Vice President.
Mr. DULLES. And Mr. Rowley could furnish us any detail the Commission might want?
Mr. CARSWELL. Yes, I would suggest that Chief Rowley is the proper person to furnish that information.
