On this appeal from a judgment of-conviction of possession of narcotics, not in the original stamped package1 and illegally imported,2 and of assaults on both a federal narcotics officer and a District of Columbia policeman in performance of their duties,3 counsel appointed by this court has ably and conscientiously presented the several questions worthy of consideration in determining whether the judgment should be reversed. We have considered each of these questions but find no basis for granting a new trial. The judgment accordingly is
