Appeal for Ruby
Pressed by Dann
Place of Honor Is Taken by Rabbis in Selma March
Charging that "the prosecutors
already wasted too many thou-
sands of dollars of Dallas tax-
payers' money on scapegoats,"
Sol A. Dann, Detroit attorney, this
week pursued his efforts to secure
a change of venue for Jack Ruby.
Charging discrimination, de-
manding that Ruby be heard and
tried elsewhere than in Dallas,
and not by the judge who has
been sitting in the case, Dann
"A better solution than his
judicial murder would permit a
plea to be quickly entered for
Ruby of 'guilty of murder without
malice, with a recommendation
of mercy' — without fanfare — at
a new trial."
Dann said he plans to take the
- case to the American Bar Associa-
tion and ask for its intervention.
He also is considering an am
peal to the American Psychiatric
Association for its intervention
"because there is no room for dis-
pute regarding Ruby's sanity."

Three national Jewish religious

A Selma Jew, Seymour Pal-

Rabbi Siegel stated:
"We are both Jews whose an-
cestors taught the world the prin-
ciples of justice. We are both Jews
who have suffered too much for
so long. Let us both join in prayer

crimination to acceptance of all
men as brothers; and from passive
indifference to constructive and
courageous action on behalf of all
