PORT OF SPAIN, Dec. 30:

PROPOSALS for the formation of an Inter-Caribbean Amateur Football Association will be considered at a general meeting to be held in Puerto Rico from February 12 to 14, 1951. This is in line with a decision of the Caribbean Interim Tourism Committee at its recent meeting in Puerto Rico. It follows upon the efforts of Commander Charles Hayward and others.

Mr. Louis S. Law, Executive Secretary of the Caribbean Interim Tourism Committee, will invite territories which have shown interest in the proposal.

The meeting, over which Mr. Law will preside at the outset, is for the purpose of adopting a constitution, electing permanent officers and drawing up a programme of competitions between the member territories in the interest of friendship and better understanding through sport.

The territories to be invited to this first meeting are: Aruba, Barbados, British Guiana, Curacao, Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe, Haiti; Jamaica, Leeward Islands; Martinique; Puerto Rico; Surinam; Trinidad and the Windward Islands.
