    APPEAL FROM THE SUPREME COURT OF MONTANA
    No. 70-5376.

    Decided November 16, 1971

    157 Mont. 99, 483 P.2d 720, reversed.

    PER CURIAM.

    The motion of the appellant for leave to proceed in forma pauperis is granted.

    Whether a welfare program is or is not federally funded is irrelevant to the constitutional principles enunciated in Shapiro v. Thompson, 394 U.S. 618 . The judgment of the Supreme Court of Montana is reversed.

    THE CHIEF JUSTICE is of the opinion that probable jurisdiction should be noted and the case set for oral argument. [404 U.S. 70, 71]
