PORT OF SPAIN, Feb. 3 (By air mail from the Trinidad Guardian)—J. E. Derek Sealy, the brilliant Barbados cricketer, who ranks next to Constantine as the second best all-rounder in the West Indies, will be lost to Barbados cricket in the future. He will join the staff of Trinidad Leaseholds, Ltd., Pointe-a-Pierre, on the conclusion of the present M.C.C. tour and it is expected that he will appear for Trinidad in future intercolonial tournaments.

Sealy will strengthen not only Southern cricket, for as he rivals J. L. Parris as the best soccer forward in Barbados, he will be of great assistance to the Southern Amateur Football League also.

OFFER CLOSED

Sealy, it is understood has no engagement in Barbados, and closed with an offer of employment made to him by the management of Trinidad Leaseholds.
