Background and Education
I believe that I shall be compelled by matters of personal conscience to refuse to answer the question and state that I am
doing so because of personal conscience, and I'd like to assure you that there is nothing that I have belonged to that I am
not completely proud and that my personal record wouldn't make me proud to state, but I do not feel that I want to answer
this question and, if necessary, I would hold that to answer such a question might in some way incriminate me.
