Testator had properly executed his will in all respects except that following his and witnesses' signatures there appeared a clause appointing executors. New York statute law provided that to be valid a will must be signed at the end by the testator. Surrogate Court had denied probate. On appeal, held, affirmed. The statute was not complied with, for the end of a will is not found until the last word of all the provisions is reached. In re Winter's Will, 98 N.Y.S. (2d) 312 (1950).
