John Jones lives on a farm
which he owns and cultivates.!
He sells the farm to Joe Smith.'
Does Smith become the owner
of the growing crops on the land
at the time of the sale?
Yes. The general rule is that
a deed to land passes the grow
ing crops thereon to the grantee]
of the deed in the absence of a
reservation to the contrary. This 1
is true even though the crops j

i buyer of land, the law consid

The principle applies to cot

, kinds of vegetables, fruits, and
I berries that have not been har-

! May there be an oral agree

Yes. Although a conveyance

law of North Carolina permits 1
jan oral reservation of the an-|
nual crops to the seller.
But there cannot be an oral]

on the farm as of the time of

Mary Barnes become the owner

No. In the absence of a

New track-to-body proportion! The track is the width between the
wheels. Pontiac is the only Wide-Track car. Body width is reduced,
shaving side overhang, balancing more weight between the wheels.
Best relationship of body width to wheel width ever tailored. Lean
and sway are ancient history.
Announcing the new Pontiac Trophy V-8 Engine! We’ve improved

spves gas by using more air in the gasoline mixture. This makes the
engine breathe more efficiently, giving you better acceleration.
Ejeveq versions to choose from. Horsepowers range from 215 to
548. For best economy, specify the Trophy Economy V-8. Its lower
compression ratio lets you use regular gas.

Teachings of Christ Jesus are I
featured in the Bible selections:
which include his admonition
concerning the “corrupt tree
(which) bringeth forth evil fruit”
(Matt. 7:17). The subject of the
Lesson-Sermon is “Are Sin, Di
sease, and Death Real?”
This correlative passage from
"Science and Health with Key
to the Scriptures” by Mary
Baker Eddy will follow (343.14):
“Jesus strips all disguise from
error, when his teachings are
fully understood. By parable
and argument he explains the
impossibility of good producing
evil; and he also scientifically
demonstrates this- great fact,!
proving by what are wrongly
called miracles, that sin, sick-!
ness, and death are beliefs—il- ]
lusive errors—which he could
and did destroy.”
