Gentlemen: In reply to your letter of February 27, 1963, I can tell you that Lovie Edwards is not eligible for admission to Stephen F. Austin State College under the established rules of our Board of Regents. The College was chartered as an institution for white students only and this condition is also stated in the rules of the Board. The Board is making a continuing study of this matter but I am not in a position to say what their ultimate decision will be. There is no way of telling you how much credit Miss Edwards would have if permitted to enroll here because there is no way of evaluating the courses listed with your letter. We would have to have an official transcript to make an evaluation of that kind. Yours truly, R.W. Steen
