Dist. Atty. Henry M. Wade, facing the 52-year-okl defendant, then read the indictment charging that Ruby did “with malice aforethought kill Lee Harvey Oswald by shooting him with a gun.” The indictment was dated Nov. 26, two days after Oswald was shot and four days after Kennedy was assassinated during a motorcade in downtown Dallas. Defense counsel told Judge Joe B. Brown that the defendant was pleading innocent by reason of insanity. Judge Brown was absent Tuesday with a cold and Judge J. Frank Wilson sat for him while the jury was completed. The return of Judge Brown to the case appeared to be a first in Texas. “I feel better,” Brown said as he walked through a crowd of reporters and photographers outside the courtroom.

Hoffa Jurors Busy' CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) —The jiffy in James R. Holla’s trial on charges of attempted jury tampering tries again today for a verdict that he says will determine his future as a labor leader. The four women and eight men deliberated 2 hours and 35 minutes Tuesday night before U.S. Dist. Judge Frank Wilson sent them to bed at IO p.m. Ha! W. Bulten, 69. a retired sales executive, was elected jury foreman. The jurors are considering six weeks of testimony on government charges that Hoffa, president of the International Teamsters Union, aided and abetted five other men on trial with him in trying to fix the 1962 jury which tried him on a conspiracy charge in Nashville. The Nashville jury, from which three jurors or prospective jurors were excused on grounds that someone tried to contact them, never was able to agree. Conviction could mean up to 15 years in prison and $15,000 in fines for Hoffa. For the others, it could mean up to 5 years and $5,000 each. Maybe In November Dennison Delays Annexation Vote Petitions Snag Phila Rezoning On the vote of members of the New Philadelphia Planning Commission and Board of Zoning Appeals, Mayor Joe Pritz will ask Appeals. Solicitor Donald Zimmerman to I determine the validity of the petition submitted by Byron and Helen Schneiter for rezoning of their 4 lots on the east side of 4th St. NW, between Carrie and Grandview Aves. NW. The action came at the end of a heated public hearing Tuesday night in the Municipal Building, when Richard Rea, planning commission president, flatly refused to consider the petition until Zimmerman had studied it. At the Feb. 23 Council meeting, Zimmerman said the Schneiter petition had sufficient signatures, representing the majority of property owners in the one-block area containing the 4 lots which are asked to be redesignated as ‘‘business lots.” The solicitor instructed Council that the request would have to be referred to the Planning Commission and tile Board of Zoning When Mayor Pritz presented a counter petition last night from residents in the area, it was discovered both petitions in several instances, contained the same signatures, and each had been signed by persons who are now deceased, Mrs. Lulu Benson and Mrs. Eugene Quillen, among approximately 30 persons at the hearing, rose to say they had signed both petitions but wanted to withdraw their names from the Schneiter request. Dominick Ferchill said he also had signed both, but now wanted to withdraw from the counter petition. Rea noted that the Schneiter petition was undated and had been submitted “several” years ago.
