This is an appeal from a judgment of the District Court having to do with the liability of the surety on a government contract which contained the words prescribed for such contracts by the Walsh-Healey Act, 41 U.S.C.A. §§ 35-45. The suit was on behalf of employees of the contractor who had received as dividends only a portion of their wages for a period prior to the contractor's bankruptcy. The District Court held the surety liable. D.C.E.D. Pa. 1949, 85 F. Supp. 573. We agree with the result reached and for the reasons stated in the District Court opinion, upon the basis of which the judgment will be affirmed.
