But Glenn's entry into the Hearing For Ruby To Resume DALLAS (AP) The bond hearing for Jack Ruby is to re- sume Monday with, defense at- torneys saying they want to present evidence that Lee Har- vey Oswald assassinated Presi- dent Kennedy and killed police officer J. D. Tippit. How far the defense will ba allowed to delve into events pre- ceeding Oswald's death will de- pend on Dist. Judge Joe B. Brown, The specific legal point at the hearing is whether Ruby, a 53- year-old night club operator, should be freed on bond until he is tried for murder in the shooting death of Oswald in the Dallas city jail. Oswald had been charged with the deaths of both the President and Tippit. May Last Week If Judge Brown rules that the assassination of the President and the slaying of the Dallas policeman are pertinent to the bond hearing, the court session could last a week. Chief defense Atty. Mclvin Belli is expected to call nearly two dozen wit- nesses. But if Judge Brown rules that the events prior to Oswald's death have no bearing on the Bond hearing, the session could end much quicker. Ruby has been in jail without bond since he was taken into custody seconds after Oswald was killed. Under Texas law a judge may deny bond in a case punishable by death. Insanity Pica The defense has indicated that it will attempt to prove that Ruby was temporarily in- sane at the time Oswald was shot to death. In a conference Saturday with defense and state attorneys, Judge Brown said the psychia- trists will study brain waves of Ruby, while awake and asleep. By studying brain waves, doc- tors are sometimes able to spot damaged areas in the brain. The tests, to be made some- (See HEARING, Page 10) U.S. Caual Right Sharply Rapped.
