Deceased deposited money in a saving account entitled, ''Deceased in trust for Plaintiff," and made several deposits and withdrawals. Shortly after the initial deposit she informed the plaintiff of the existence of the account. By a subsequent will deceased left her entire estate to the defendant under circumstances evidencing an intention that the funds in the account not go to the plaintiff. On appeal, held, reversed for defendant. A deposit in such form creates a tentative trust which is not made irrevocable by notice to the beneficiary and which may be revoked by a subsequent will. Brucks v. Home Federal Sav. & Loan Assn., (Cal. 1951) 228 P. (2d) 545.
