On Petition for Review of an Order of the Benefits Review Board. (88-2957-BLA)

Alonzo Cook, Petitioner pro se.

Before WILKINSON and WILKINS, Circuit Judges, and BUTZNER, Senior Circuit Judge.



Alonzo Cook seeks review of the Benefits Review Board's decision and order affirming the administrative law judge's denial of black lung benefits pursuant to 30 U.S.C. §§ 901-945. Our review of the record and the Board's decision and order discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we affirm on the reasoning of the Board. Cook v. Director, Office of Workers' Compensation Programs, No. 88-2957-BLA (Ben.Rev.Bd. June 28, 1991). 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.
