Attorneys representing the appellee have filed no brief and failed to appear for oral argument. By letter they advise that the issues have become 'more or less moot', and urgently request an immediate decision.


This appeal is controlled by our decision in Ahrens v. Rojas, 292 F.2d 406 (5th Cir., 1961). For reasons sufficiently stated in that opinion the judgment of the district court is reversed and judgment here rendered dismissing the petition. Let the mandate issue forthwith.
