Before HAYNSWORTH, Chief Judge, MARVIN JONES,* Senior Judge, and BUTZNER, Circuit Judge.
While we think the District Court had jurisdiction to inquire into the matter, particularly to determine the bona fides of the partnership in which the bankrupt was a limited partner, we agree, for the reasons stated in the opinion of the District Court, filed on July 6, 1967,1 that the bankrupt's interest as a limited partner gave the bankruptcy court no power to administer real estate owned by the partnership or to enjoin its sale under foreclosure by the mortgagee.
