Leonard Speakes, appellant pro se.
Before JAMES DICKSON PHILLIPS, WILKINSON and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.
A review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal from its order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. Sec. 2241 is without merit.* Because the dispositive issues recently have been decided authoritatively, we dispense with oral argument and affirm the judgment below on the reasoning of the district court. Speakes v. United States, C/A No. 88-12-E (N.D.W.Va. Jan. 22, 1988).
We note that the parole commission correctly determined that appellant's prior conviction did not meet the requirements of the ancient prior record exception
