Hoping that the rain would subside the Newark booters, headed by Tom Adams, were invited to come to Bethlehem when field conditions looked doubtful early in the morning. As a result the Newark clan and Bethlehem players were on hand but did not get into action.
The Bethlehem team will be away for two games over the weekend. On Saturday afternoon Bethlehem will clash with the Philadelphia Centennials on the latter's grounds and on Sunday will oppose the much improved Celtic team in a game to be played on the latter's new grounds at Paterson, N. J. The visit of Bethlehem to the new soccer city in the Eastern League is expected to draw a capacity crowd.
The game scheduled to be played in Bethlehem was not the only one washed out. All games scheduled in the Metropolitan district in the two leagues were canceled for the same reason.
