Syllabus

In determining a net estate for federal estate tax purposes, a deduction may not be made under § 812(d) of the Internal Revenue Code on account of a charitable bequest that is to take effect only if decedent's childless 27-year-old daughter dies without descendants surviving her and her mother. Humes v. United States, 276 U. S. 487. Pp. 348 U. S. 187-200.
