MARINE NATIONAL BANK OF ERIE, EXECUTOR OF THE ESTATE OF WILLIAM A. CAREY, DECEASED, PETITIONER,
COMMISSIONER OF INTERNAL REVENUE, RESPONDENT.
Before MCLAUGHLIN and O'CONNELL, Circuit Judges and LEAHY, District Judge.
We agree with the Tax Court that the bequests to the charities in this case were void and that upon the death of the testator, the residuary legatees by operation of the Pennsylvania charitable bequests statute then in effect*fn1 became vested with the property described in clauses IV, V, VI and VII of decedent's will. See Selig v. United States, 3 Cir., 166 F.2d 299.
The decision of the Tax Court, 9 T.C. 1047, will therefore be affirmed.
