PER CURIAM.

1

This is an appeal from a denial by the District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania of the appellant's petition for a writ of habess corpus. He claims that he should be given credit on his sentence for time spent in serving a term in the custody of authorities of the State of New York. The trial judge referred to the governing statute, 18 U.S.C. 3568, and cited the appropriate authorities.

2

The judgment of the district court will be affirmed on the authority of the memorandum filed by Follmer, J., District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, 198 F.Supp. 748.
