D O0 you realize that if you do not dispose of your property by will your estate may be disposed of by law very differently from the way you would wish? The law respecting estates for which no will has been made, can of course take no account of the special personal needs of each beneficiary. Perhaps one of your heirs may not be well qualified to care for his prop erty, and it should be placed in trust for him; or, perhaps circumstances may make it advisable that one heir should receive a larger share than i the others; or, that the property should be given to him in a different form from that given to others. But, unless a will is made, each heir must share the property in accordance with the rigid provisions of the law. When you make your will, why not assure efficient and economical manage ment of your estate by appointing the Bankers Trust Com- = pany as executor and trustee? The Company has all the essential qualifications of a competent trustee, including as S sured existence throughout generations of beneficiaries. It has many qualifications which no individual trustee can S possess. Moreover, the cost of its highly specialized and " competent service is no greater than the uncertain service of an individual trustee. The officers of the Company will be glad to confer with you, or send you information, regarding this important matter, or regard ing any other trust or banking business you may have in mind.
