claims, and the extent to which collateral given or payments made to some of them might be deemed preferences, must be reversed. P. 289 U. S. 435.

P. 289 U. S. 436.

54 F.2d 255 reversed.

Certiorari, 286 U.S. 537, to review the reversal of a decree approving a plan of reorganization in a receivership case.
