The Intramural Council Thursday
reversed Kappa Alpha Psi's forfeiture to
Ag Men in the intramural fraternity
basketball playoffs.
The action followed the postponement
of an intramural game between Theta Xi
and Ag Men Wednesday evening when
about 35 young blacks refused to leave
the Coliseum court where the game was
to be played.
Originally the Kappa Alpha Psi team
was to have played the Theta XI team,
since Kappa Alpha Psi defeated the Ag
Men Tuesday evening.
However, the Ag Men were declared
the winner of that game by forfeit. In
tramural officials said the game was
forfeited because the all-black Kappa Alpha
Psl fraternity used Mike Wynn, an ineligi
ble player.
Wynn is a member of Kappa Alpha
Psi, but his name was not on the official
roster turned into intramural officials
before the playoffs.
Intramural rules state that a team must
freeze its regular season roster for the
playoffs. Thus a team can not add any
extra players for the playoffs.
Intramural Director Ray Chatfield pro
posed reversing the forfeiture. Commenting
on his earlier decision to forfeit the game
to the Ag Men, Chatfield said, "Maybe
I did make a hasty judgement."

But the intramural director added, "If
we followed all the intramural rules every
team would be kicked out."
Sherwin Jarmon, Kappa Alpha Psl
president, said at the Thursday meeting
that Wynn's name was not on the roster
because of a clerical error by his fraternity.
However, he said that at the time of the
disputed game with the Ag Men, Kappa
Alpha Psi did not know that Wynn's name
had been omitted from the roster.
Carl Wear, chairman of the Men's
Physical Education department, said, "It
doesn't seem conceivable to me that they
(Kappa Alpha Psi) would jeopardize their
position by knowingly using an illegal
Commenting on the black sit-in
Wednesday night, Jarmon said, "We didn't
want to hold up the game, we wanted
you (Ag Men) to see our position." He
explained that it would have been difficult
for his fraternity to explain their case
after the game between the Ag Men and
Theta Xi had been played.
Gerald Hopp of the Ag Men replied,
"We would just as soon play the game
Kappa Alpha Psi and the Ag Men
agreed to replay the disputed game Thurs
day evening, March 5.
