(AP) -- Owners of the World Football League Orlando Blazers met with prospective new owners Saturday in an effort to finish negotiations for planned relocation of the team to Atlanta. "We have in our possession a letter from league Commissioner Gary Davidson okaying the transfer of the Orlando team' to Atlanta," said T.M. Alexander, one of the group interested in acquiring the franchise. "All we have to do is meet three conditions, and we're fairly certain we can do that." The major problem blocking the shift of the team has been finding an adequate stadium. The team has been negotiating with Georgia Tech for the use of Grant Field, which seats 60,000. "Georgia Tech's stadium was offered to the World Football League last year," said Alexander, "and we anticipate no problem getting it this year." The athletic hoard of Georgia Tech .will meet early in the week to consider the Blazers' request to rent Grant Field, Tech's acting-president said. EXPECTS DECISION Dr. Vernon -Crawford said he expects to have a decision «ar- y in the week on. whether the ithletic' board would recom- nend the proposal to the Board of Regents. Earlier, however, Dr. Joseph 'ettit, president of Georgia Pech',-:said he .doubted the Blaz- erS'-.w.oiild. be', allowed to use Tech's, stadium. L. "We.vhave' a real responsi- jilily to?bur own athletic pro!ram and particularly to our ine football team,""Pettit said. 'They use Grant Field in- .ensely all week, all fall. It is lard to imagine that a second .earn could be based in the same facility.*' Pettit added: "I have serious questions as lo the effect on the educational life of the institute of thousands of people coming to the campus during the middle of the week." The team, if the ! proposed t r a n s f e r does materialize. would play its first game in Atlanta on Aug. 28 -against the Memphis Southmen: - ;; The TIMES It On '^; Top of The News ·f*v*n Days a Wcekl Cynthia Hill Wins Amateur SEATTLE (AP) -- Cynthia Hill of Colorado Springs, Colo., defeated defending champion Carol Semplc of Sewicklcy, Pa.. 5 and 4 Saturday in the 36-hole final for the 74th U.S. Women's Amateur Golf Championship.
