This appeal presents the single question of the competency of trial counsel. We discern from the record no errors of judgment to support the allegation and affirm the judgment below.


During oral argument appellate counsel suggested to us matters outside the record that can best be developed, if true, in a proceeding below pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2255. Our decision herein is without prejudice to the right of the appellant to seek collateral relief under § 2255.
