The judgment of conviction for failure to carry a Selective Service card is affirmed. (Taylor had turned it in to the draft board.)

He was convicted of violating a duty imposed upon him by Selective Service regulations authorized by statute. We hold that the regulation was valid and a violation thereof a crime.

He was obligated to carry some card and he carried none.
