1) [line 1] MA'ASEH D'VEIS CHORON - The Mishnah (Nedarim 48a) relates an incident that occurred in Beis Choron where a person (the Madir, who we'll call Reuven for convenience) had made a vow prohibiting his father (the Mudar, Yakov) from benefiting from him. When Reuven married off his son, he wanted Yakov to join in the celebration. For this purpose, he gave to an acquaintance a gift of the courtyard where the wedding would be held and the entire meal, but he specified that he was only giving it to him so that Yakov could come to the meal. The acquaintance stated that if the courtyard and the meal were truly his, he was making them Hekdesh to the Beis ha'Mikdash. Reuven objected, saying that they were only given to him for the express purpose of letting Yakov participate in the celebration. The Chachamim ruled that Yakov was still forbidden to benefit from the courtyard and the meal, because it still belonged to Reuven. Rebbi Yosi forbids the Mudar in our Gemara from benefiting from the Madir (a) because he suspects that at times the person will not really Mafkir his possessions (make them ownerless), as in the incident in Beis Choron (RAN to Nedarim 43b DH Ela) or (b) because it does not resemble Hefker but rather it is as if he gave it to him directly, similar to what transpired in Beis Choron (TOSFOS ibid. DH Ela).
