Count 2 was based on 18 U.S.C.A. § 2422. It charged that appellant had knowingly persuaded, induced and enticed a woman or girl (Beverly June Allen) to go from Seattle, Washington, to Portland, Oregon, with the intent on his part that she should engage in the practice of prostitution and debauchery, and had thereby knowingly caused her to be transported as a passenger upon the line and route of a common carrier in interstate commerce. Appellant was arraigned, pleaded not guilty, was tried, convicted and sentenced on both counts and has appealed. No error appearing, the judgment is affirmed.
