Mary C. Normand, mother of the late Mabel Normand, and the City Bank Farmers Trust Company as trustees of the motion picture actress estate, filed suit in Supreme Court Saturday to have their account taken as trustees.

It was disclosed that Miss Normand founded the trust fund in 1922, depositing with the bank $50,000 in liberty bonds, the income of which was to go to herself during her lifetime and to be willed to her heirs at her death.

Others named as defendants with a possible interest in the fund were Gladys Normand Sireichert and Claude Normand, sister and brother of the actress.
