Still in the running for the league honors, and certain of second place, the Bethlehem Steel F. C. will continue to plug away in hopes that a break may occur to enable them to overcome the three point lead Fall River holds in the club standings. Both clubs have a number of games to play and incidentally each will have to meet some of the strongest teams in the league.

The weekend games ran true to form with the teams favored in the going come through with victories. Fleisher Yarn somewhat upset the dopes in the Saturday tilt when they took over Indiana Flooring by the score of 6 to 3. In the return game on Sunday Indiana Flooring avenged that defeat.

Fall River is not only leading in the league race but has advanced to the final round in the league cup tie competition. In the semi-final played on Sunday the National champions defeated New Bedford, the team which eliminated Bethlehem, by the score of 3 goals to none.

Bethlehem is strongly entrenched in second place in the club standing, topping Brooklyn by a margin of six points and with two games less played than the Brooklyn Wanderers. Boston with 39 points is really the most dangerous contender for third place, for the Hubmen have three more games to play to catch up to the total number played by Bethlehem. The standing of the clubs with the games over the weekend included is as follows:
