The District Court, sitting without a jury, found the appellant guilty of sodomy.1 Motions for acquittal and for a new trial were denied, and the appellant was sentenced to a term of six months to three years. On this appeal he makes several claims as to the sufficiency of the evidence presented by the Government. We have examined both the record and the briefs and find no error affecting substantial rights of the accused.
