The order denying a petition under 28 U.S.C. Sec. 2255 without a hearing is affirmed.


On the pleading submitted by Cassidy, we find it was not erroneous to deny a hearing. The court may appraise a petition by what is reasonably credible.


Further, no showing was made as to why the point sought to be made this time was not tendered in connection with prior proceedings.
