Appellant Elkanich was notified that the court was considering summary affirmance, and thereafter appellee filed a motion to affirm, pursuant to Rule 8 of our Revised Rules, effective January 1, 1970. Although appellant was afforded an opportunity to oppose summary affirmance, either as proposed by the court or by the appellee, he has not done so. Nonetheless, examination of the file and records in this cause prompts the conclusion that the questions presented are wholly unsubstantial and require no further argument. Accordingly, the motion of appellee is granted and the judgment of the district court is affirmed for the reasons stated in the Memorandum and Order of the district court, 315 F.Supp. 659 (D.Kan.1970).
