Building Up a Championship Team
That the management of the Bethlehem F. C. is letting no stone unturned in hopes of building up a soccer team to again capture the laurels of the famed clubs of years ago, is readily apparent by the activities in the last several weeks. No less than three shining stars have been signed to fill the vacancies occasioned by the departing of several of the players and if reputations can be counted upon as a criterion, the loss of the men leaving surely will not be felt. The latest acquisition to the club was the signing of Walter Jackson, a center forward, who will fill the shoes of Dan McNiven. The capture of this individual is believed to be the biggest find ever in American soccer and a player that every first class club in the country would no doubt have paid a big bonus to have his signature affixed to a playing form. References made to Jackson in the European papers, clippings of which have found their way into this office, speak of the Scottish star in the highest terms and likewise of the big loss to European football by his coming to this country.
