U. S. F. A. Delegates Gather in Philadelphia To Settle Business And Elect Officers

Forty delegates from all over the United States will be in attendance at the second session of the annual meeting of the United States Football Association to be held today in the Hotel Walton, Philadelphia. In all the years that the United States Football Association has been in existence this annual business meeting has never before been held in the Quaker City.

Most of the delegates arrived yesterday and some business was transacted by the various committees of Finance, Credentials, etc., in order to get things in shape for the real business today.

Among other things take up today will be the election of officers and the formal presentation of the National Cup to the Bethlehem eleven. This session will conclude this afternoon and this evening a dinner, to which all soccer players and followers are invited, will be held in the banquet room of the Walton.

A strong plea will be made to the association for the reinstating of Peter M. MacLaren, W. A. Frost and E. M. Jones the officers of the local American League in the 1914-15 season. These three men were suspended a year ago for a term of four years because they refused to allow the American League teams to take part in the annual benefit matches of the Football Association of Eastern Pennsylvania and district, the local governing body.
