PER CURIAM:

1

The legal and factual issues raised in this appeal are indistinguishable from those raised in the companion case of Fidelity & Deposit Co. of Md. v. Scott, etc., 5 Cir. 1972, 461 F.2d 640. The teachings of the opinion in that case compel that we reverse the judgment of the District Court with directions that judgment be entered in favor of The City Bank of Goodwater.

2

Reversed and rendered.
