Since Beck's first trial in December, 1961, for smuggling marihuana in violation of 21 U.S.C. Sec. 176a, enough has already been written1 and more than enough time has elapsed since the offense for which he has now been twice convicted by juries.


The extremely technical and insubstantial questions now presented do not justify writing more, or delaying further the execution of the sentence imposed.


The conviction now appealed from in ordered affirmed.
