The receiver of a bank deeded land "to Alfred Carothers and Delarma Hackett, or survivor." Plaintiff, Hackett's grantee, brought an action for construction of the deed. On appeal, held, the deed conveyed a moiety to each for life with remainder to the survivor in fee, and neither grantee, by a conveyance during his lifetime, could cut off the contingent remainder. Rowerdink v. Carothers, 334 Mich. 454, 54 N.W. (2d) 715 (1952).
