FULLAM, District Judge.
Greyhound Lines, Inc. has filed a reclamation petition, seeking to recover a balance of $36,790.42, representing the net proceeds of bus tickets sold by the Debtor, prior to the filing of its reorganization petition on June 21, 1970, pursuant to an agency agreement between the two companies. The agreement requires the Debtor to submit monthly statements of tickets sold, and to remit monthly to Greyhound the proceeds of such sales, less Debtor's compensation thereunder. The petitioner claims that these balances represent trust funds, and are thus a proper subject for reclamation.
The crucial factor in distinguishing between a trust relationship and an ordinary debt is whether or not the recipient of the funds was entitled to use the funds as its own, and commingle the funds with its own monies. See Scott on Trusts, 3rd ed. § 12.2. The agency agreement in this case specifically provided that:
"For expediency in handling accounts, it is the practice of Railroad to deposit its own funds and those received for users of its facilities in banks or depositories in its own general account; and it is agreed that the amounts collected or received hereunder may be deposited in such general account as may be Railroad's practice, without the necessity of the amounts received hereunder being separately identified or earmarked. * * *"
