Defendant, Lewis, was convicted below, after waiving a jury, for violating 21 U.S.C.A. § 174 and 26 U.S.C. § 2554 (a). He contends that the government's evidence failed to establish his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. We disagree. United States v. Aman, 7 Cir., 1954, 210 F.2d 344, 349; United States v. Holmes, 7 Cir., 1951, 187 F.2d 222. It would neither aid defendant, nor do more than accumulate precedent on well-settled principles, to detail all the facts we encountered canvassing this record. We are satisfied reversible errors are absent and fundamental rights unimpaired.


The judgment of the District Court is affirmed.
