In this diversity action for injuries sustained while coasting at a winter ressort the court in effect told the jury that if the rock which appellant testified his sled struck was where he said it was he could recover, but that if there was no rock there at all, as defendant's witnesses testified, he could not. We think this charge was fair and appropriate.


Judgment will be entered affirming the judgment and order of the District Court.
