SAN FERNANDO, Sept. 17:—Proposed tour of South Trinidad by British Guiana is set for November and the tourists will arrive here by plane on Tuesday, November 1 for two weeks, leaving on Tuesday, November 15.

British Guiana will tour the South on invitation of the S.A.F.L., in a return visit, the League having visited B.G. last year, when in an additional match after the three Test series had been drawn, the southerners won the rubber.

The B.G. team will comprise 16 players including a non-playing manager, Mr. C. M. Cumberbatch, honorary secretary of the B.G.F.A. At present the B.G.F.A. are considering the
programme of three Tests and four club games, as well as making arrangements for the selection of their team.
