QUEENSLAND BRITISH ASSOCIA-
The annual meeting ot the Q.B.F. Association was held on Wednesday. Mr T. W. Crane presided over a fair repre-
sentation of clubs. The secretary's report showed that 31 clubs played in the various competitions last season, comprising over 600 registered players
Out of this number, as far as could be gathered, something like 200 had enlisted in the Expeditionary Forces. Considera- tion was given to a resolution passed at a delegate meeting held recently, that no competition be held in the Senior, First, or Second Grade competi- tiona, and that no player of military ago be allowed to take part in a lower competition " After some discussion this was carried. It was suggested that an ot the Senior, First, or Second Grade clubs who might form should be allowed to play friendly matches. It was also agreed to get into communication with the military forces, as it is known that there are many 'Soccer' players in the various camps, and matches will, if pos- sible, be arranged by the executive. It was unanimously decided that the office bearers of the association who were elected last year should continue in office for the ensuing year. These are -Patron, his Excellency the Governor, president, Hon.
E. J. Stevens, M.L.C., hon. secretary Mr S. I. Ross, hon treasurer, Mr Wm. McArthurs, chairman of committee Mr T. W. Crane.

It was pointed out by the secretary (Mr Ross) that the decision arrived at was similar to the decision of the coun- il of the English Football Association,
with which the QBFA is affiliated, and also to the decision of the Southern "Soccer" associations of the Common- wealth
