The Globe -- South Bethlehem
Wednesday, March 14, 1917

The American League of Philadelphia held a special meeting yesterday in the Inquirer Building and granted permission to the Hibernian management to use several professional and amateur players next Sunday when they lineup against the champion Bethlehem Steel Works team on the Phillies ball ground. One of the "Hibs" new men will be John Lance the well-known local amateur who will play center forward against the champions.

All of the local players came out of Sunday's game in fairly good condition except for a few cuts and bruises and will continue special training this week. One of the biggest attractions of the year will be staged on March 24, when the champions of the United States will clash with the All-American international team on the local field in the first of a series of games to be played in Bethlehem and Newark. It is reported that the men handling the All-American team are willing to wager big money that the internationals will lower the colors of the champions.
