Appellant asks us to reverse his conviction of robbery. There was ample and substantial evidence to support the jury's verdict. The charge as given was adapted to the issues and clearly adequate for the guidance of the jury. Moreover, there was no objection by appellant to the charge before the jury retired to consider its verdict, Rule 30, Fed.R.Crim.P., 18 U.S.C.A. There is no error.
