At a spjfcial spe iai tn mfie te ftair fr frof of oGqQr Georgetown g tPwn
advisory ndVisor board horirdy yesterday steld y it was de ¬
cided to accept the apology ap logy which was
sent out from the University Unlversityot of Vir T ir ¬ I Isent

Graham was instructed nstruct d to Invite Vir ¬
ginia to send as large a delegation as l
possible to the Georgetown GeorgetOWllndoor indoor meet meetat
at Convention Hall next Saturday even ¬ l
ing In = I
This move of the Blue B ueandGray and Gray is I
considered the most important action
taken by the advisory advlsor board since four
years ago when the board approved
the executive committees action in sev ¬
erlng all athletics with Virginia because
of an objectionable obJ cUonable article whic which h ap ¬
peared in the university publication
making light of the religious tenets terietsof otj of
Georgetown men
The advisory board Is the th highest
tribunal in Georgetown Georg town athletics and iti it
Is isbe believed llevedtbat that its It latest action willj will
bring about nboutan an early settlement of the
breach with w1ththe the Old Dominion Dom nion which
hi i ii i existed for four fouryears years years
Only Matter Discussed Discuss d
The Virginia matter was the theonl only af a f ¬
fair that was brought pp ij 1 > for discussion
and when a 3 3v vote v te was finally firtI1UY called ca lIe for
the board was unanimous for accepting
the apology and extending extendin gan an invitation
to renew relations
Yesterdays action was th the first official j
net w which hich Georgetown has taken In re j
gard to a resumption Four I our years have
elapsed e apsecl since the Blue and Gray Gra and
Orange and Blue played the memorable men > rable
footba f Olba ll game in the fall of 1JW1 whic which h
resulted r mltcd in a victory victor for fo the local uni ¬
versity by a ascore score of 17 to 16 the win m ¬
ning touchdown being made mad in the thelnst lust
15 to seconds of play IJla

undergraduates undergra uates roturntd nlurn d to their re ¬
spective ycctlvetn5ti institutions ltUon w when hen rumors r umo of 0 f a
severance S rHnce of relations were set afloat
Malcontents on both sides suid there
were men on the two teams who were
played without regard to tocp1cge college ethics
istme of the charges was y ever prove proved d
and the matter matt r rested rest d for some time
College Papers Comment
Following the account of the football
game une In College Topics t the Virgin VIrginia ia
student publication pu UcaUon there appeared uppenrJda a
paragraph in which it was w wits s said the th
Georgetown players p113 < crl resorted to certain
religious re Hglus practices during the Intermis ¬
aba Including the sprinkling of holy lOi
wuter This light allusion engendered engendc red
an il feeling and after waiting waUngsome some
time the Georgetown advisory advIsor board bQ rd met me
and mddecided decided to sever relations with Vir Vir ¬
ginia giri ta
Virginia did not retract the state ¬
agent m nt that appeared In College Topic
stating statin unofficially that tIS as the paper p
was W as not under r university U n1er it supervision
they thc did d d not feel called upon to bear
responsibility rc ponsbmty for the story
Although numerous efforts have been
made ma e to get the two Sout Southern lleru rivals to ¬
gether It was wH not until the past week
that anything amtlthgd definite fil1itc was wnsc wnscone done l one In a a
letter to a member of the Virginia ath ¬
