On separate motions filed respectively by the attorneys for the appellees, T.

By virtue of the authority vested in this Court by LSA-R.S. 13:4441, 13:4442, it is ordered that this case be transferred to the Court of Appeal, Parish of Orleans, the transfer to be made within 30 days after this decree has become final; otherwise the appeal is to be dismissed; the appellants to pay the costs of the appeal to this Court and the costs of transferring the case to the Court of Appeal; all other costs to await the final disposition of the case.
