Appeal from United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania; C. William Kraft, Jr., District Judge. D.C., 224 F. Supp. 395.

Norman Shigon, Philadelphia, Pa., for appellants.

Howard R. Detweiler, Philadelphia, Pa., for Valley Forge Military Academy.

Pauline B. Heller, Dept. of Justice, Washington, D. C., (John W. Douglas, Asst. Atty. Gen., Drew J. T. O'Keefe, U. S. Atty., Sherman L. Cohn, Atty., Dept. of Justice, Washington, D. C., on the brief), for the United States.

Before KALODNER, HASTIE and SMITH, Circuit Judges


On review of the record we find no error in the judgments entered in favor of the defendants, Valley Forge Military Academy and the United States of America, and they will be affirmed. The jury's finding in answer to Interrogatory 1(a) that the defendant Valley Forge Military Academy was not negligent makes it unnecessary for us to rule on the District Court's dismissal of the action brought by Christine M. LoBianco and Valentine LoBianco in their own right for the assigned reasons that the evidence failed to establish the requisite jurisdictional amount.
