William Stafford, U. S. Atty., Pensacola, Fla., for plaintiff-appellee.

Before THORNBERRY, MORGAN and CLARK, Circuit Judges.


On this direct appeal from his conviction of violating Florida statutes for concealment and possession of stolen property on lands acquired for use of the United States,1  appellant Richard Lee Scott complains (1) that the evidence was insufficient to support the guilty verdict; (2) that the district court failed to grant him an adequate hearing on his physical and mental competency to stand trial; and (3) that the district court erred in its instructions to the jury and in its ruling on objections occurring during the trial. We have carefully examined the record of the trial below and conclude there is no merit to any of the assertions of error. The judgment of the district court is
