Three members of Howard University's D.C. Soccer Association championship squad were named to the 1959 All-Southern Soccer Team announced last week by Duke University. They are McDonald Gibbs, inside right; Alex Romeo, outside left; and Peter Hezekiah, right halfback.

Gibbs, who is a repeater from last year's All-Southern team, also was named to the 1958 All-American squad. He is a senior from Trinidad, West Indies. Hezekiah, another Trinidadian, is a junior; while Romeo, a native of Bermuda is a freshman.

THREE OTHER Bisons received honorable mention on this year's team, which included players from 14 colleges in the Maryland-Virginia-North Carolina area. They were Carlton Hinds of Port-au-Spain, W.I., outside right; Winston Cooke of Jamaica, left half-back, and Victor Henry of Trinidad, right fullback.
