Appellant was indicted below for the crime of murder in the second degree, and on trial was convicted of manslaughter. The court imposed upon him a sentence of four years' imprisonment, two years of which were suspended. The killing grew out of a drunken brawl on the streets.


We see no reason for interfering with the jury's verdict or court's sentence. The judgment, 148 F.Supp. 652, is accordingly affirmed.
