1. There were five possible locations for the Dallas luncheon, but the Sheraton-Dallas Hotel and Memorial Auditorium refused on various pretenses to play host to the President, the Market Hall was occupied by a bottlers' convention, and the Womens' Building was vetoed by local authorities as being too drab and impractical for serving a luncheon. That left the Trade Mart.

At Curry's urging, Sorrels approved the choice of the Trade Mart on November 4 and advised Behn at the White House.

DPD Chief Curry needed the location to be the Trade Mart to reverse-engineer the motorcade route to go down Elm street after the 90 and 120 degree turns...DPD already had LHOwhoever working at TSBD as patsy with forged look-at-me-with-a-gun photos.
