Gleaner Special Service. LONDON, Feby. 22:
RON HECKMAN, 24-year-old Bromley and England inside forward, came off his job in a London brewery yesterday and heard the news that he had been picked for the Football Association's "dream" tour of the West Indies in May.
"Boy, oh boy, a 'Royal Tour'!" exclaimed Ron. "Just think of all that wonderful sunshine. It's a great honour.
"Thank goodness I have got good employers. They agreed to give me leave should I be picked."
Heckman is one of the best young inside forwards in England. An amateur with the Spurs, he has refused repeated offers to turn professional.
