This is an appeal from a conviction for robbery. Appellant urges the insufficiency of the evidence and the ineffectiveness of trial counsel, the latter as a means of raising a question as to the legality of his arrest and the consequent legality of subsequent occurrences, a point not raised in the trial court. Despite the earnest and skillful presentation by Court-appointed counsel, we find no error affecting appellant's substantial rights.
