A trust estate was created by a husband in accordance with a divorce decree, the income therefrom being paid to the wife in lieu of alimony. Provision was made for reversion of the estate on death of the wife and for payment of surplus income to the husband during the duration of the trust. Held, that the benefit arising from the discharge of a legal obligation constituted sufficient basis for trucing the trust income to the settlor. Willcuts v. Douglas, (C. C. A. 8th, 1934) 73 F.
