Board of Re gents against M. S. Woodcock, for the purpose of securing land south of j Waldo Hall, have been called off. Rather than be placed in the position of apparently fighting the college, an institution he says he has favored here tofore in every way possible, Mr. Woodcock decided to take several thousand dollars less for his property than he considers it worth, hence the cessation of legal activities. While the papers have not yet been signed by all parties, the G.-T. understands from Mr. Woodcock and the college people that the matter is definitely settled. The property aluded to comprises about forty lots south of Waldo Hall which Mr. Woodcock valued at about $17,500.
