Oregon State blacks' transfers
aided by Washington alumni


SEATTLE P() - Black Alumni
of the University of, Washington
have petitioned the Pacific Con-
ference to change its transfer
rules so athletes planning to leave
Oregon State University can en-

without loss of eligibility.
Joe Jones, president of t h e

athletic events two weeks ago af-

beard and mustache.
Jones wrote that Oregon State
black athletes have expressed in-
terest in transfering, but would
be 'ineligible for two years for par-
ticipation in athletics at another
Pac-8 institution.
"We feel, in view of the racist
attitude at Oregon State Univer-
