Syllabus

1. Where an award made under the Dent Act for expenses incurred under a war contract was accepted, with payment by the claimant in full discharge of the obligations of the United States under the contract, reformation of the award is a prerequisite to recovery of additional compensation in the Court of Claims. P. 264 U. S. 218.

2. It is not a ground for reforming such an award that the claimant, before accepting it, was advised by army officers believed to be acting under directions of the board that examined the case that acceptance would not waive further claim under the contract. Id.

3. Allegations of a petition held insufficient as a basis for reforming an award on the ground of mutual mistake by the claimant and the United States. Id.

57 Ct. Clms. 623 affirmed.

Appeal from a judgment of the Court of Claims dismissing a petition on demurrer.
