The government is ready to permit the International Harvester Company voluntarily to readjust its organization to conform to recent interpretations of the Sherman law. Pending the result of conference between Attorney-General Wickersham and attorneys for the company, the threatened dissolution suit is being delayed. The government, however, will not drop its proposed suit upon a mere agreement of the company to reorganize, but will insist that the reorganization come as the result of a decree of a circuit court, thus placing the company in the position of acting in contempt of court should it violate any of the provisions of the reorganization scheme.

The trustees of the Connecticut Woman's College at New London, Conn., have received the one million dollars which Morton F. Plant, chairman of the board of trustees. gave the institution. The gift is in securities which have an interest-bearing value of at least four per cent, assuring the college of an annual income of forty thousand dollars. A gift of ten thousand dollars from Edwin Milner of Moosup was announced. This is the first donation toward a second million dollars which it is planned to raise. Of the one hundred and thirty-five thousand dollars raised by subscription in New London, eighty thousand dollars has been paid in.
