On remand from the Supreme Court, 415 U.S. 391, 94 S.Ct. 1177, 39 L.Ed.2d 412 (1974), the judgment below is affirmed for the reasons stated in Johnson v. Robison, 415 U.S. 361, 94 S.Ct. 1160, 39 L.Ed.2d 389 (1974). Hernandez v. Veterans' Aministration, 467 F.2d 479 (9th Cir. 1972), insofar as it reads 38 U.S.C. 211(a) as precluding judicial review when sought on constitutional grounds, is overruled.
