UPHOLDS ARIZONA LAW
Members of the Arizona Corporation
commission ; were very much gratified
to receive a copy of a recent decision
cf the Michigan supreme court on the
matter of stock sales without a per-
mit, an issue that has been a bone of
contention in this state. In the case
of Wy S. Edward versus Walter Ioor
the Natinoal Piano company, an Ari
zona corporation and others, ' the
court holds that stock . may not be
sold in Michigan without a permit,
under ia law very similar to the Ari
zona statute and defines sale as a
transfer for any' valuable considera
tion. In this specific case the sale
was an exchange of stock. After the
exchange, the plaintiff demanded the
return of his original stock and wag
denied, and the court holds the de
fendants responsible for its value on
the ground that the stock they issued
in exchange in the Airzona corpora
tion was not sold under a permit in
