NEW YORK (AP)—New York Generals of the National Professional Soccer League almost lost two starters Thursday to U.S. immigration authorities and red tape.

Warren Archibald and Jan Steadman, natives of Trinidad, were advised by immigration authorities that if they made the trip to Toronto for a game there today they might not be able to re-enter the United States.

It took a trip by business manager John Smith to the bureau of immigration in Washington to straighten out the matter.
