Appellant Beere, who admittedly refused to submit to induction into the Armed Forces, contended, in defense to an indictment in the District Court for Connecticut, that the Local Board improperly rejected his claims to exemption as a conscientious objector and a minister. Judge Blumenfeld rejected his contentions in a careful Memorandum of Decision, embodying findings of fact and conclusions of law. We perceive no error in his decision and affirm the judgment.
