This case raises a question concerning the expiration date of an oil and gas lease. We affirm the decision of the district court that the lease in question terminated at the end of a fixed term of 50 years, on January 16, 1976, for the reasons set forth in the Memorandum Opinion of Judge Halbert O. Woodward. 447 F.Supp. 66 (N.D.Tex.1977).

AFFIRMED.
