Wilson Evokes Wrath of Umps
Jimmy Wilson, the same Jimmy who years back booted the ball with the Bethlehem Steel soccer team and played baseball in the Industrial League, was among a crowd of big league celebrities who not only evoked the wrath of the umpires but was sent down with a fine. The windup of the Phillies-Cincinnati game played on Saturday came near resulting in a riot when the umps' decisions were questioned. Wilson was accused of using abusive language and of shoving the umpire and trying to step on his feet. For the part he played he was plastered with a $200 fine, which no doubt is not worrying Wilson as much as the indefinite suspension.

Another for Hakoah
The Hakoah All-Jewish soccer team will shortly invade the East to complete its American tour. Detroit on Sunday was the last mid-Western stand and in which the Vienna aggregation defeated a Michigan All-Star eleven by the score of 2 to 0. In the East is where the Jewish team will find the stiffest competition. The Hakoah eleven has now played eight games in this country. The tourist have scored a total of 11 goals while their opponents have registered one less. The team has played before more than 85,000 persons thus far on its tour, and with as many more games yet to be played, the total attendance will probably soar close to the 200,000 mark.
