The cause is remanded to the Court of Common Pleas of Chester County for further consideration and appropriate proceedings in the light of Gideon v. Wainwright, 372 U.S. 335, 83 S.Ct. 792, 9 L.Ed.2d 799, in order that Lawrence Gibbs may have an opportunity to establish by evidence the material averments of his petition and the Commonwealth may have an opportunity to affirm or deny or rebut this evidence. After hearing the evidence, the Court of Common Pleas of Chester County shall make its findings and enter an appropriate order of judgment consistent with the evidence and the law, and the opinion of the Supreme Court of the United States in Gideon b.

The reasons for this action are to be found in our recent opinion filed June 23, 1964, in Commonwealth ex rel. Goodfellow v. Rundle, 203 Pa. Superior Ct. 419, 201 A.2d 615.
