The decision in Taylor v. Louisiana,419 U. S. 522, wherein it was held that the Sixth and Fourteenth Amendments require petit juries to be selected from a source fairly representative of the community and that such requirement is violated by the systematic exclusion of women from jury panels, is not to be applied retroactively, as a matter of federal law, to convictions obtained by juries empaneled prior to the date of that decision. DeStefano v. Woods,392 U. S. 631.
297 So.2d 417, affirmed.
