In respect to the Senior league, enhancing the standard of our football requires distribution of our best players among as few teams as possible. It is essential, therefore that the number of competing clubs be cut from the ten of last season to the old five or six of the past. It is imperative that this be confirmed if we hope to be strong in quality to meet Trinidad in January, and cut no poorer a figure than we did in 1935-36. Our footballers, as in the case of our cricketers a couple months ago, have that last visit defeat to avenge.

His successor Mr. Granville daCosta needs no introduction; in fact I think I have dealt with the abilities of both himself and Mr. Judah when I proposed the former as the most logical successor to the latter in my article appearing last week Tuesday. He is an able organizer with ideas, and the visit of the Trinidad team should provide him with more scope for his ability.

A news article in a recent copy of the "Trinidad Guardian", of Port of Spain, reveals that the proposed visit of an English professional team to the West Indies has been cancelled, at least for the time being. Lieut-Commander Chas. Hayward, the Trinidad President, had worked hard in the endeavour to bring off the project, which would be the equivalent to say an M. C. C. cricket tour of the West Indies.
