Mr. G. M. daCosta has come back from the Caribbean Football Association conference with some excellent news for Jamaica, and without having had to commit this country to obligations which it might have found irksome to carry out.

We are to have a visit from a West Indian team in February, and our own team will be visiting the Dominican Republic to take part in a tournament there later in the year, both very attractive propositions.

A West Indian team in this connotation means a team picked from all the members of the Association. Trinidad, Haiti, Dominica, Aruba and should be able to produce a very strong combination.

The tournament to the Dominican Republic will be one in which all the countries will be taking part, and will give us an excellent chance of comparing our strength with theirs.

The difficulty of selecting the best available West Indian team from so many different countries will be largely obviated in this instance by the fact that Mr. Eric James of Trinidad, who is secretary of the C.F.A. has a close acquaintance with all the teams and has been appointed sole selector.
