However, Belli insisted that the defense table be moved a foot or so forward in the well of the court away from the three sheriffs officers. They are among 21 security guards . on duty in the courtroom. Judge Brown quietly gave his permission for the move, saying: "Push 'em up if you want to." Belli told » newsman later that he had not actually attended the World War II wir- crimes trials ia Nuremberg. but had seen pictures of the court in session. Ruby, operator of a Dallas strip-tease joint, watched the argument impassively, and moved his chair forward with the lawyers. Previously, he had donned horn-rimmed spectacles to peruse some newspaper clippings placed on the table by Belli.
