2. A payment must be in proportion to amounts paid from other available funds (if any);

3. The power is not affected by the existence of a person bound by law to maintain or educate the infant; nor it is affected by the fact that particular sums have already been set aside for this purpose;

4. The power exists whether  the infant’s interest is vested or contingent (provided, in the latter case, that the trust carriers the intermediate income);
