In this case the District Court denied the appellant's motions under 28 U.S.C. § 2255 without making findings of fact and conclusions of law, as is required by the provisions of Rule 52(a), F.R.Civ.P. See Welch v. Beto, 5 Cir., 1968, 400 F.2d 582; Waters v. Beto, 5 Cir., 1968, 392 F.2d 74. Therefore the case is remanded to enable the District Court to state its findings and conclusions, and certify them to this Court by a supplemental record. The District Court may receive and consider such memoranda, briefs, or arguments with respect to the findings of fact and conclusions of law, proposed or adopted, as it deems appropriate.
