FIGHT IS NEAR END Final Argument in Action Brought by Hood Against Wife Is Heard. Final argument in the suit brought by Richard Haden Hood, a wealthy civil egineer of Plainfield, to recover real estate and personal property worth *100,000 from his wife was heard today before Vice-Chancellor Stevens. Mrs. Frances Sparks Hood, the defendant, was represented by former Attorney-General Robert H. McCarter. Former Judge Gilbert Collins, at torney tor Hood, opened the argu ment today in Chancery Court. Mr. Coliins spent little time in discussing tho personal property at "The Roses,” as tho Hood homestead at Plainfield, is called. The furnishings, costly paintings, rugs, statues and other property, he claimed, were unques tionably the personal belongings of the husband. , In arguing for' the reconveyance of the real estate property at Plainfield former Judge Oollfns repeated in de tail the testimony which had been of fered a week ago. Although the land and house was deeded to Mrs. Hood, the latter promised to reconvey It at any time her husband requested her to do so, said the lawyer. This trans action placed tho property in Mrs. Hood’s possession as a trust and was not a settlement upon her, argued the counsel. Former Judge Collins's argument took up the entire forenoon session of the court and left the afternoon tq Mr. McCarter. Mrs. Hood has brought •ult for divorce against her husband, making sensational charges. The evi dence in the divorce action has all been taken, but the court’s decision has not been announced.
