Real property is given by deed
or will to Sam Smith for life
and upon his death to John
Jones. May Sam Smith sell his
Yes. Sam Smith has interest
in the laiid which he may sell
or give by deed to another. He
does not need the consent of
John Jones to do so.
Smith is called the '’life ten
ant” a.nd Jones is called the “re
mainderman.” Jones does not
take over the occupation and
complete ownership of the land
until after the death of Smith.
If Smith should transfer his
life estate to Jones, this would
make Jones the sole and abso
lute owner before the death of
Smith may rent the property
to another for a term of years.
But if Smith should die before
the expiration date of ihc lease,
the lease necessarily comes to

W. Hancll in his column of
a couple weeks ago was dis
cussing ihe difficulty of writing
as a profession. Well. I’m far
from being a professional writer,
but I do enjoy tossing off a few
thoughts and ideas on paper.
One trouble, though, is that
when you're in the mood to
write, you lack for ideas . . .
conversely ... when you have
a terrific idea, you're not in
the mood for writing. As I
write this. I'm in the former
category, in the mood to write,
but lacking for ideas. So. I
asked around. Somebody says to
