The McGill Soccer team will be renewing a pre-war rivalry this week-end when they invade the States to play against Amherst and Dartmouth.

Already in good condition after a month of strenuous practice the Redmen have lined up an impressive team with plenty of foreign talent for the twin exhibition contests. Guarding the nets will be Ted Fainstat of Montreal while Leo Lindo of Panama and Sid Smith from Barbados are the rearguards for the half line. Ian Patterson of London, Hal Dale of Bermuda and Don Wolvin of Montreal, manager of the team have been selected, while the forward line consists of Ilay Ferrier from France, Ron Bernard of Bermuda, Eric Fong of Jamaica and Duke Ellington and Bob Ammon from Trinidad.

The team left Montreal last night via the new McGill bus and will play the first game against Amherst on this afternoon. Saturday they journey to Hanover, N.H. to take on the green sweatered Dartmouth squad, and return to Montreal that night.
