Extensible implies normal

This article gives the statement and possibly, proof, of an implication relation between two automorphism properties. That is, it states that every automorphism satisfying the first automorphism property (i.e., extensible automorphism) must also satisfy the second automorphism property (i.e., normal automorphism)
