Syllabus

In a suit by an American citizen under the Trading with the Enemy Act to recover the proceeds of property mistakenly seized and sold as enemy property, which were deposited with the Treasurer of the United States and by him invested in interest-bearing securities of the United States, the plaintiff is entitled to an accounting for the interest derived from such investment, as well as the principal. P. 271 U. S. 300.

4 F.2d 988 reversed.

Appeal from a judgment of the circuit court of appeals which affirmed a judgment of the district court (298 F. 947) dismissing the bill in a suit under the Trading with the Enemy Act in which the plaintiff, Henkels, sought an accounting for interest.
