false conflict...

      Erie argued that a false conflict existed.  They argued that
Pennsylvania law should apply, as the place of injury was Pennsylvania.
Regardless, Pennsylvania law had to be applied by the federal court by mandate
of sect. 34 of the Judiciary Act which required the federal court to apply the
law of the state, and this included Pennsylvania statutory as well as common
