Beverly Dennis, III, Chief Counsel, Charlotte Hardnett, Chief, Social Security Litigation Division, Lawrence J.

Adams, Assistant United States Attorney, Baltimore, Md., for appellee.
Before K.K. HALL, CHAPMAN and WILKINSON, Circuit Judges.
Mamie Pratt ("claimant") appeals from a decision of the district court affirming the Secretary of Health and Human Services' denial of her claim for social security disability benefits under 42 U.S.C. Sec. 405(g). Upon review of the record, the opinion below, and the briefs of the parties, we find that the Secretary's ruling is supported by substantial evidence. See Myers v. Califano, 611 F.2d 980 (4th Cir.1980). Accordingly, the judgment of the district court is affirmed. Pratt v. Sullivan, CA-88-3689-B (D.Md. Sept. 22, 1989). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the Court.
