         by El Salvador players; protests in San Salvador on the alleged mistreatment of 
         their players reportedly resulted in one death; the result apparently stood]
14- 3 Guatemala       n/p Honduras    
        [it was reported on March 14 that Honduras withdrew in solidarity with El Salvador
         but according to the March 15 edition of La Nación a match was played between 
         the two teams, Honduras winning 1-0; in any case it appears that this match was
         not considered official by the organising committee, which according to the
         Amigoe di Curaçao (edition of March 18) refixtured the match for May 7; however,
         it was not played on that day either; the same newspaper reported on August 23 
         that Guatemala and Honduras had been due to play each other on May 17 but that
         the match had been cancelled]
