Honorarium of $1,500—the biggest ever—was voted Mr. Eric James, Secretary of the Trinidad Amateur Football Assocation, at the annual general meeting of the Association on Friday night.

The Association was able to vote their secretary this handsome sum because they are in a very healthy financial position.

It was revealed at the meeting that the reserve fund of the Association has now reached $10,288.

High praise was showered on Mr. C. G. Bulger, newly appointed coach from the United Kingdom, for the able and efficient manner he was conducting his duties.

The meeting also paid great tribute to Mr. Victor Richardson, for the way in which he managed the Trinidad team that toured Jamaica earlier this year.

Officers were appointed as follows: Mr. George Rochford—President; Lt. Commander Charles Hayward, 1st Vice President; Mr. E. C. Crawford, 2nd Vice President and Mr. Eric James, Secretary.
