"A sequence $S$ is potentially $K_4-e$ graphical if it has a realization containing a $K_4-e$ as a subgraph. Let $\sigma(K_4-e,n)$ denote the smallest degree sum such that every $n$ -term graphical sequence $S$ with $\sigma(S)\geq\sigma(K_4-e,n)$ is potentially $K_4-e$ graphical. Gould, Jacobson, Lehel raised the problem of determining the value of $\sigma(K_4-e,n)$ . In this paper, we prove that $\sigma(K_4-e,n)=2[(3n-1)/2]$ for $n\geq7$ and $n=4,5$ , and $\sigma(K_4-e,6)=20$ .''
