AREND, Justice. On August 9, 1962, John C. Rivett, as defendant in the superior court, pleaded guilty to charges of (1) being
in possession of a concealable firearm as a convicted felon, (2) theft of two checks, and (3) two counts of forgery of these
checks. Five days later he was given certain concurrent sentences requiring him to spend a total of five years in prison.
He now attacks the sentences on a multitude of grounds, including charges of illegal search and seizure, involuntary confession,
and confession rendered while under the effects of drugs. Additional details pertinent to the appeal are as follows: Acting upon information that a person named John Rivett had stolen some checks and was about to leave Alaska by airplane
from Ketchikan, two state police officers on August 1, 1962, proceeded to the Ketchikan Airport -- actually a dock for float
planes -- where the defendant was pointed out to them. They identified themselves to the defendant as police officers and
asked him his name. At first he claimed to be M. E. Brown and produced his airplane ticket issued to that name; but, upon
being asked for further identification, he admitted that his name was Rivett.
