Plaintiff railway company deposited funds in the national bank of the defendant receiver. Dissatisfied with the guaranty of his deposits by surety bonds, the plaintiff demanded and received from the bank Liberty Loan Bonds, which were deposited with the trust officer of the bank to be held as security for the repayment, on demand, of the deposits. On the insolvency of the bank, the receiver refused to turn over the bonds, whereupon the plaintiff brought an action on the contract of pledge. Held, that the contract of pledge of the bank's assets to secure the private deposit was invalid and unenforceable. Texas & P. Ry. Co. v. Pottorff, (C. C. A. 5th, 1933) 63 F. (2d) 1.
