Decided February 26, 1965.

Terry H. Davis, Jr., Norfolk, Va. (Taylor, Gustin, Harris, Fears Davis, Norfolk, Va., on brief), for appellee.

Before BOREMAN and BRYAN, Circuit Judges, and NORTHROP, District Judge.


Our review of the record convinces us that the judgment of the District Court upholding a verdict for the defendant represents a just disposition of the case. While in part the Court’s charge may be subject to some question, we do not think it serious enough to justify a disturbance of the verdict which we find firmly supported by the evidence.
