Before BRYAN, WINTER and CRAVEN, Circuit Judges.


The factual determination of the district judge made at the trial when he admitted defendant's statements in evidence against him that the statements were freely and voluntarily made in full knowledge of defendant's rights under Miranda v. State of Arizona, 384 U.S. 436, 86 S. Ct. 1602, 16 L. Ed. 2d 694 (1966), and Escobedo v. State of Illinois, 378 U.S. 478, 84 S. Ct. 1758, 12 L. Ed. 2d 977 (1964), was not clearly erroneous. We affirm the conviction and judgment entered thereon.
