Trustees under a will purchased two lots of bonds at a premium, one of which had a call date and price; a callable preferred stock at a price above the call price; and bonds at a discount. The trustees amortized the premium bonds to the maturity date in one case and to the call date in the other. The stock was amortized over a period of five years to the call price. The life tenant claimed the right to be paid discount accumulated on the bonds bought at a discount. Held, that the action of the trustees as to amortization of both lots of premium bonds was proper; that there was no basis for amortization on stock, though callable, as on bonds; that accumulation on bonds bought at a discount could not be paid to the life tenant.
