This is an appeal from a denial of a motion filed in the District Court under Section 2255, Title 28, United States Code. Appellant says his trial counsel failed to call a certain person as a witness and that his attorney, after the verdict, argued on behalf of both appellant and a co-defendant, also convicted, in respect to the sentence to be imposed. Despite the earnest and skillful presentation of appellant's points by counsel appointed to represent him on appeal, we find no error.
