The record demonstrates that appellant adequately preserved an exception to the court's failure to give a requested instruction on insanity. Oral argument demonstrated that the case must be reversed and remanded for retrial under Blake v. United States, 5 Cir. (en banc) 1969, 407 F.2d 908 and it was so ordered from the bench.


Reversed and remanded.
