The judgments are affirmed. The court adopts the opinion of the district court, Jamison v. United States (N.D.Cal.1968), 297 F.Supp. 221. If our decision means the broadening of loop holes in the tax laws, the remedy is by action by Congress and not by judicial fiat.



1 Honorable Warren J. Ferguson, United States District Judge, Central District of California, sitting by designation.
