Only Decca has prosecuted his appeal in this case. The appeals of Slack and Zinram are dismissed for want of prosecution.


The judgment of conviction and sentence of Decca are affirmed. The search complained of on the motion to suppress evidence was a 'border search,' and as such was legal. See Murgia v. United States, 9 Cir., 285 F.2d 14, cert. denied 366 U.S. 977, 81 S.Ct. 1946, 6 L.Ed.2d 1265, and Mansfield v. United States, 5 Cir., 308 F.2d 221.


The judgment is affirmed.
