This is an appeal from the district court's denial of habeas corpus relief to a federal prisoner who is serving a sentence in the United States Penitentiary at Atlanta. He contends that he is entitled to be given credit on his present sentence for time which he served under a prior unrelated federal sentence which has been vacated.


We recently rejected a similar contention in Davis v. United States Attorney General, 5 Cir. 1970, 432 F.2d 777. On Authority of the Davis decision, the order appealed from in this case should be and is hereby affirmed.
