The order denying habeas corpus relief on a state conviction is affirmed.


In our view, before we consider whether counsel was ineffective in not seeking a hearing in the California Supreme Court (such a hearing being discretionary with that court), Chavez should show a federal court that he had a point of real substance which was lost. We cannot find it.
