X conveyed land to A for life, remainder to the heirs of A's body. Thereafter, X granted the same land by quit-claim deed to A in fee simple, without any conditions or restrictions whatever. The lower court upheld A's claim to an absolute fee in the property. On appeal, held, reversed. A holds a life estate and the reversion, but the remainder, though contingent, is not defeated. Whitten v. Whitten, (Okla. 1950) 219 P. (2d) 228.
