Before CHAMBERS, BARNES and HAMLIN, Circuit Judges.


The defendant's in-custody confession was inadmissible for lack of a Miranda-type warning, inasmuch as his trial was commenced post-Miranda. Miranda v. State of Arizona, 384 U.S. 436, 86 S. Ct. 1602, 16 L. Ed. 2d 694 (1966).

The judgment of conviction is reversed and the case remanded for a new trial. Johnson v. State of New Jersey, 384 U.S. 719, 721, 86 S. Ct. 1772, 16 L. Ed. 2d 882 (1966). Cf. Groshart v. United States, 392 F.2d 172, (9th Cir. 1968).
