We have carefully considered appellant's contentions that there was insufficient evidence to support his conviction for attempted escape, 18 U.S.C.A. Sec. 751(a), that he was denied his constitutional right to a speedy trial, and that the trial court erred in excluding certain testimony and in denying a motion for a new trial based on newly discovered evidence. We find all these contentions to be without merit.
