[ 42 Pa. Commw. Page 569]

On January 4, 1979, this Court issued an Order in this case which provided, inter alia :

3. With respect to Adams' challenges to the failure of the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole to credit him with the time spent on parole in good standing in its recomputation of his recommitment as a technical parole violator, summary judgment is entered in favor of Alexander Adams and the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole is ordered to recompute the maximum expiration date of his sentence so as to give Adams credit for that period of time from May 13, 1977 until October 26, 1977.

Mr. Adams' new maximum expiration date of April 18, 1979 was correctly computed by adding four months and 20 days which Mr. Adams spent on parole in delinquent status to his previous maximum expiration date of November 28, 1978.

We therefore vacate the portion of our Order of January 4, 1979 heretofore quoted and substitute therefor the following new section:
