The recent case of Gray v. Ward calls attention to the problems which arise in the application of the Missouri statute abolishing estates tail as created by the statute De Donis Conditionalibus. It is believed that all of these problems have not been solved in the decisions of the Missouri Court and this study is undertaken to determine what principles have been adopted, and what further principles should control the Court in the application of this statute of entails.
