This is a suit for civil contempt brought by five Negro firemen against the Railroad and Brotherhood based upon a prior consent injunction prohibiting racial discrimination in the job assignments of Negro firemen employed by Appellee Railroad.

The background facts, analysis of issues, and reasoning have been fully and accurately set forth by District Judge Bootle, and his fact findings amply satisfy the clearly erroneous test of F.R.Civ. P. 52(a), 28 U.S.C.A. Accordingly we affirm the judgment finding no discrimination under these circumstances on the basis of his reported opinion below. Washington v. Central of Georgia Ry., D.C.M.D.Ga.1959, 174 F.Supp. 33. See also Oliphant v. Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen, 6 Cir., 1958, 262 F.2d 359, certiorari denied, 1959, 359 U.S. 935, 79 S.Ct. 648, 3 L.Ed. 2d 636.
