The present appeal of this appellant based on the assertion that he was denied the effective assistance of counsel due to the presence of two United States Deputy Marshals in the room where he consulted with his attorney prior to changing his plea to guilty on January 4, 1960, is utterly without merit.


The judgment of the lower court will be affirmed on the Memorandum and Order of Judge John W. Lord, Jr. of October 8, 1964, D.C., 243 F.Supp. 401.
