Submitted Jan. 29, 1988.
Decided April 21, 1988.

Tracy Sylvester Eanes, appellant pro se.
Before JAMES DICKSON PHILLIPS, WILKINSON, and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.
Tracy S. Eanes appeals the district court's dismissal of this 42 U.S.C. Sec. 1983 action for failure to pay the assessed filing fee. Finding that the district court properly complied with the procedures approved in Evans v. Croom, 650 F.2d 521 (4th Cir.1981), cert. denied, 454 U.S. 1153 (1982), and did not abuse its discretion in dismissing the action without prejudice, we grant leave to proceed in forma pauperis and affirm the district court's order. We dispense with oral argument because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively.
