We selected 660 E+A galaxies with 4.0Å<Hδ EW at a redshift of <0.167 from the Data Release 5 of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). We selected their companion candidates from the SDSS imaging data, and classified them into true companions, fore/background galaxies and companion candidates using the SDSS and our KPNO spectra. We observed 26 companion candidates of E+A galaxies at the KPNO to measure their redshifts. Their spectra showed that 17 targets are true companion galaxies. Description: We used the GoldCam spectrometer attached to the 2.1-m telescope at the KPNO. Our observation was carried out in three semesters. We observed 26 companion candidates on 2005 September 22-24, 2006 June 28 and 2007 May 17-21. File Summary:

Note (1): [YYG2008] 25 and [YYG2008] 26 represent the same pair, i.e. for [YYG2008] 25, companion galaxy is E+A galaxy of [YYG2008] 26, for [YYG2008] 26, companion galaxy is E+A galaxy of [YYG2008] 25. Note (2): Magnitudes and absolute magnitudes with reddening and K-correction by KCORRECT.V414 (Blanton et al., 2003AJ....125.2348B).
