OPINION OF THE COURT

PER CURIAM:

view counter
1

Appellant was convicted of having refused to perform alternate civilian service at the Williamsport Hospital in lieu of military service. He had been classified 1-O by his local board despite his assertion of entitlement to a ministerial exemption.

2

Appellant asserts that there was no basis in fact for his 1-O classification and that the local board which classified him was composed of members from his county but that several members did not live within his area.

3

We have carefully considered each of appellant's arguments and find them to be without merit. See United States v. Tobias, 447 F.2d 227 (C.A.3, 1971).

4

The judgment of the district court will be affirmed.
