Gridders Vote to Accept Blacks Back Syracuse, N.Y. The members of the Syracuse University football team have voted to accept eight suspended black athletes back on the squad, apparently amid suggestions their failure to do so would force cancellation of home against Kansas.

Among the eight were last two leading ground gainers, A1 Newton and Greg Allen. Three weeks ago Chancellor John E.

The annonncement said head football coach Ben Schwa rtzwalder the reinstatement to the chancellor. Schwartzwalder told the Associated Press, however, that Tuesday team meeting had been recommended by university officials. He said the unnamed officials predicted that if the team voted to accept the eight back on the squad might have a chance to play the A statement by the 68 team members was carefully worded, Schwartzwalder said.

The suspension followed a boycott of spring practice by the eight players. They said the action was taken to protest what they called the racist attitudes of Schwartzwalder and his coaching staff. CJorbally denied the formal charges filed with the local human rights commission, but offered to reinstate the players in August if they made a commitment to the coaching staff and the team and accepted responsibility for their suspension.
