Peace at Last
Sam Marks and a flock of other soccer moguls who took up arms against the United States Football Association have at last been convinced of their folly and in coming back to organized circles are said to be very receptive to the conditions laid down by the parent organization. Without cooperation and loyalty no business can be expected to function successfully and the business of soccer experienced a material drop in the market during the warfare. While generally the reconciliation will be heralded as a boost in further popularizing this rapidly growing sport there may be some opposition from one or two clubs whose sole interest is their individual affair and not the good of the game. Perhaps such an assertion might be unwarranted but knowing that certain clubs, one or two to be exact, reaped a harvest financially during the soccer strive they will undoubtedly be loath to accept an invasion on what they proclaim their territorial rights. The U. S. F. A. has done a fine piece of business in brining about a settlement and the task which now confronts and one that appears is to establish a well meaning harmony in the ranks.
