Before EDGERTON, Chief Judge, and WILBUR K. MILLER and FAHY, Circuit Judges.


On this appeal from a conviction of robbery, the defendant contends his right to a speedy trial was violated and also that the judge erred in refusing to receive, in support of a motion for a new trial, testimony regarding a discussion in the jury room. We find no error affecting substantial rights.
