Elwood S. Levy, Philadelphia, Pa., for appellant.
Isaac S. Garb, Asst. U.S. Atty., Philadelphia, Pa., for United States (Drew J. T. O'Keefe, U.S. Atty., Philadelphia, Pa., on the brief).
James J. McCabe, Jr., Philadelphia, Pa. (Duane, Morris & Heckscher, Richard Rosenbleeth, Steinberg, Richman, Price & Steinbrook, Philadelphia, Pa., on the brief), for third-party defendant Jay Aster, Individually and t/a Wingate Const. Co.
Daniel J. Ryan, Philadelphia, Pa. (LaBrum & Doak, William F. Fox, Philadelphia, Pa., on the brief), for Russell W. and Anthony Morello.
Before McLAUGHLIN and STALEY, Circuit Judges, and LEAHY, District judge.
This case was tried to the court. Our own examination of the trial record shows substantial affirmative evidence in support of the district court's finding as a trier of the fact that plaintiff's decedent was guilty of contributory negligence which was a juridical cause of his death. Appellant's other points are without merit.
The judgment of the district court will be affirmed.
