Before GOODRICH, McLAUGHLIN and HASTIE, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM.


This is a suit to recover for a tax payment which the taxpayer says was not properly exacted from it. It has to do with the question whether a loss was to be treated as an ordinary loss or charged as a capital loss. The district court decided the case against the taxpayer and rendered a thoroughly considered opinion in so doing, D.C.E.D. Pa. 1953, 115 F. Supp. 594. We do not have anything to add to that opinion.

The judgment will be affirmed.
