AFFIRMED

Before DONALD RUSSELL, WILKINSON and WILKINS, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM:


Hazel Ray seeks review of the Benefits Review Board's decision and order and order on motion for reconsideration affirming the administrative law judge's denial of black lung benefits pursuant to 30 U.S.C. §§ 901 et seq. Our review of the record and the Board's decision and orders discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the Board. Ray v. Masteller Coal Co., 88-1686-BLA (Ben.Rev.Bd. June 29, 1990). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the Court and argument would not aid the decisional process.

AFFIRMED.
