OPINION PER CURIAM
On the showing made by the petitioner, the question involved is whether he is now eligible for parole. A petition for a writ of habeas corpus is not the proper procedure for obtaining an adjudication of the petitioner's alleged rights in the premises: cf. Kinsella v. Board of Trustees, 340 Pa. 497, 498, 17 A.2d 882.
