s i l iar
Loh--- I remember aVca se in the Apellade Division(iAiso.) where one
o6'_af y ass ciates said  there was treapass in such a case and I laughed
,hil out of it(the case in the reports is only discussed froi. a negiligence
,standpoint),
8---that is archaic law of. course but we must appreciate the fact th t
one cannot abandon thirWs. Supposei someone told the ojner thit his
car was at the bottoA of the hill and he failed then to take care of
it so that it injured' the pla.ntff---tight well be liable.
