Belli asked whether Ruby said "son of a bitch" in a "normal tone of voice." Said Archer: "At the time of the shooting, the 'son of bitch' was loud. Detective Graves, the first witness on the 16th day of the trial, corroborated the testimony Wednesday of fellow officer J.R. Leavelle who also said he saw Ruby's hand "contracting" on his 38 caliber revolver after he fired one shot. A husky man. sifting on the stand with his fingers entwined, Graves said he reached out and his hand was only sue inches firom Ruby's weapon when the nightclub operator fired the shot that dropped Os wald to the floor of the city jail basement. The prosecution apparently sought to show by references to squeezing the trigger more than once that Ruby deliberately intended to kill Oswald and wanted to make sure he would. The defense, presumably, will hold that this was part of an epileptic spasm during which Ruby was in a "blackout" and did not know right from wrong.

The prosecution said it wanted to end its case at mid-day. "Hell, there's no use prolonging this thing," Asst. Dist. Atty. William F. Alexander said. J. R. Leavelle, the detective handcuffed to Oswald's right hand, testified Wednesday that "not more than a minute" after the shot was fired, he heard Ruby say: "I hope the son of a bitch dies." Leavelle's story, a planned motion picture re-run of the televised slaying and testimony expected today by a police captain who claims Ruby said "You don't thmk I was going to let him get away with it, do you?" were main points in the state's plea for the deatli penalty. The gimlet-eyed, thin - faced relentless Alexander, a prose cutor noted in Texas f o r his rapier methodology in court, has been running tiic questioning of witnesses — with Dist. Atty. Henry M. Wade at his side as mastermind. Wade's office has a record of 23 death verdicts in the past 24 murder cases. The other one got life imprisonment. Millions of television viewers saw Detective Graves go to the floor with Ruby, grappling with him, fighting for the revolver. Leavelle, 44, was the man with the light tan suit, white 10-gaUon hat, and startled face at Oswald's right in the famous newspaper pictures of the shooting. He testified Wednesday that as they fell, scrambl ing. Ruby's "right hand was still contracting on the gun, as though attempting to fire an other shot." ft mummmmu imms: • 79 PC.
