Opinion PER CURIAM
ING OPINION BY MR. JUSTICE ROBERTS:
In this case the Court affirms the action of the trial court in entering a non-suit against the decedent's plaintiff on the theory that the decedent was guilty of contributory negligence as a matter of law. I dissent because the record establishes evidence from which the jury could find that the defendant was negligent and the decedent free from contributory negligence.
Mr. Justice MUSMANNO joins in this dissenting opinion.
