California treats men and women much tho «amo both as to their property rights and their wills. With a will you can dispose of your estate largely ns you . like. You can chooio your executor. You may allow him to serve without being bonded. You may name a guardian for your minor children, even without an estate to bo probated. If you leave an estate (real property, securities, bank accounts, etc.), you can «et up a trust for your children. Without a will, the law acts for you In these things--for your estate has to bo settled one way or another--and the outcome may or may not be what you want. * · · · WITHOUT A WILL nil com Can't be beaten for wonderful eatin'! sunshine I n H Y D R O X . - . a n d o n l y In HYDROX ... you enjoy the marvelous merging of richest chocolate wafers and the most thrilling vanilla cream-filling... aa dessert... with dessert.... doubly delicious! toe ORIGINAL cream-filled chocolate cookie.. *"--·.* _ .FINEST EVER MADE! munlty property goes to the spouse who survives. And most want It this way. But what if one has children by a prior marriage and leaves no will? This may cause trou hie. A husband or wife may dispose of up to half the community property by will. You get separate property be- 'oro marriage or by gift or la icrlt^nce, ' Often a wife wants ler husband to have hers, anil he wants her to have his. Dut unless they both say so in their wills it won't work out that way. For If there are no children, the separate property will go half to the survivor and the rest to the deceased's parents, brothers, sisters, nephews', nleces,«and on down the line of succession. WITH CHILDREN the surviving spouse gets one half the separate property and the children share the rest. Take Mrs. Bumble. She Inherited her husband's half of j their community property. Unmarried and with no children, she fondly thinks her beloved niece will receive her whole es- tute since she is her only blood relative. But unless her will says otherwise her niece will get only half, and Mrs, Bumble's In-laws will get the rest, as with separate property. Widow Brown, however, has made a will, leaving everything to her children. When she rc- mirried, she does not Intdhd to leave anything to her new husband. Hut unless she makes a new will mentioning this wish, the law will consider the old one I partially revoked, and her hus- 'band will take his share under the law of Intestate succession. You may well think your affairs are such that you don't need a will, but why not (heck up and see? (This column is prepared by the State and Long Beach Bar Assns.)
