BETHLEHEM BOOTERS DRAW WITH WHALERS
strong Gale Sweeping Field Dominant Factor in Scoring Both Goals
BLAIR MAKES FINE SAVES

Invading New England territory for the second time this season the Bethlehem booters fared somewhat better than on their initial trip, playing New Bedford to a one goal draw on Sunday afternoon. Tommy Blair, the Whalers custodian, was again at his best and his phenomenal work between the uprights turned back many accurate labeled shots. The game was an Eastern League affair.

A strong southwest wind was a dominant factor, Bethlehem pressing in the first half and New Bedford holding its own in the second half, each side scoring with the aid of the wind. Massie put Bethlehem ahead at the end of twenty minutes with a drive from thirty yards out. Blair misjudged the shot. Four minutes after the change of ends, Howieson tied the score when he connected with a well placed pass by Kelly. The one point obtained by New Bedford enabled the team to keep in the front in the three corner race for leadership with Hakoah and Bethlehem.
