Before SWAN, Chief Judge, and AUGUSTUS N. HAND and FRANK, Circuit Judges.


Having examined the record we are satisfied that the trial judge committed no error of law and made findings of fact which the evidence amply supports. See United States v. Johnson, 327 U.S. 106, 66 S. Ct. 464, 90 L. Ed. 562; United States v. On Lee, 2 Cir., 201 F.2d 722. The order is affirmed. The motion for stay of execution is denied.
