THREE members of the Caribbean All-Stars soccer team—Michael Kruin, Humphrey Maynals and Rudie Kamperveen, of Surinam, left the island yesterday morning by KLM airliner for Curacao en route home.

Representatives of the team from Trinidad and British Guiana headed by Mr. Eric James, manager, left Monday morning by BWIA Vickers Viking aircraft. Players from Guadeloupe
and Puerto Rico left Sunday.

Before leaving yesterday Michel Kruin said that on his return to Surinam he would endeavour to see if arrangements can be made for a team from Surinam to visit Jamaica.

Kruin and his colleagues had a very enjoyable stay here. They were very much impressed with the hospitality and sportsmanship exhibited by the Jamaica people, he said.

Mr. W. Meeks, vice-president of the Jamaica Football Association, was at the Palisadoes Airport to see the Surinam footballers off.
