Plaintiff was employed by defendant to assist in the work of redecorating defendant's building, and was injured because of defendant's alleged failure to provide a suitable place to work. To plaintiff's plea for damages defendant answered that since it was a charitable corporation it was, therefore, immune from such action. Held, charitable corporations are not immune from liability for torts by reason of any exemption accorded them on the basis of the purposes for which they were incorporated. Gable v. Salvation Army, 186 Okla. 687, 100 P. (2d) 244 (1940).
