In this case the district court denied the joint petition of two Louisiana state prisoners for the writ of habeas corpus without making findings of fact and conclusions of law, as is required by the provisions of Rule 52(a), F.R.Civ.P. See Welch v. Beto, 5th Cir. 1968, 400 F.2d 582; Waters v. Beto, 5th Cir. 1968, 392 F.2d 74. Therefore the case is remanded to enable the district court to state its findings and conclusions.
