PORT OF SPAIN, Sept. 21 (Canadian Press)—The heaviest punishments in the history of local soccer were meted out yesterday to three players for Everton and one player for Casuals, following the decision of the Trinidad Amateur Football Association's "football court" which inquired into the recent football riot here.

Alfred Charles, Everton's captain was suspended until 1935; Frank Charles, Everton's centre forward was suspended until 1935; Leo Morris, Everton's centre half was suspended until 1934 and Noel Lewis, Casuals' right half back was suspended until 1934. Alfred Charles said, "I have to abide by the court's decision but I will pay more attention to cricket concentrating on batting". Lewis of the Casuals said "I don't desire to say anything. I will play Rugby Football".
