Abstract: Let V be an $ n \times n$ unitary matrix. Then V induces an automorphism $ {O_V}$ of $ {O_\infty }$ and $ {O_n}$. It is shown in this paper that $ {O_V}$ is weakly inner. Let $ {F_n}$ be the UHF $ {C^ \ast }$-subalgebra of $ {O_n}$ and U be a unitary operator in the diagonal maximal abelian $ \ast $-subalgebra of $ {F_n}$. Then the automorphism $ {\lambda _U}$ of On defined by $ {\lambda _U}({S_i}) = {U^ \ast }{S_i}$, for each generator $ {S_i}$ of $ {O_n}$, is weakly inner. Any automorphism conjugate to either one mentioned above is also weakly inner.
