Before CLARK, PRETTYMAN and WASHINGTON, Circuit Judges.
This case concerns a claim for compensation under the District of Columbia Workmen's Compensation Law.1 Our present appellant filed a claim alleging that subsequent to July 15, 1946, she had suffered disability resulting from an injury incurred March 12, 1946. After hearing, the Deputy Commissioner made a finding of fact "that subsequent to July 9, 1946 the claimant has suffered no disability attributable to the injury of March 12, 1946". We have examined the record as a whole and find ample evidence to support that finding. That is as far as our authority permits us to go.2
