The Eastern Cup Final
If left to a vote of soccer fans in the American Soccer League circuit, it is practically certain that a unanimous decision would have favored New York City as a more central and appropriate location for the Eastern National cup final which the cup committee arranged to be played in Providence, R. I., next Sunday afternoon. In taking the game to the New England district the committee is overlooking the opportunity of doing much needed missionary work in the metropolitan district. Local fans especially are disappointed. In New York an opportunity would have presented itself to witness the game. However, few will take the jaunt to Providence, which would mean losing the better part of three days.

All Set for the Hakoah
With league worries over, cup ambitions will be forgotten by the Bethlehem Steel soccer team for the time being, in priming to oppose the Hakoah All-Jewish eleven in the international clash in Taylor stadium on Wednesday afternoon. The players are in fine fettle for this game and reports from New York indicate that they will have to be to stop the speedy combination representing the All-Jewish aggregation. Much interest is manifest in this game, gleaned in the chatter heard on the coming of the Hakoah team. The game will be attended by many who will probably witness their first soccer game. Plenty of color has been injected as sidelights of the game, with functions arranged for tonight and carrying on practically up to the time the two teams take the field. In this game the Hakoahs face the most severe test of their schedule.
