Both Murray and Millar have recovered from injuries received in the West Hudson game last Saturday.

Bethlehem High school started its first soccer practice yesterday. It is being coached by Duncan of the national champions. South Bethlehem High is expected to follow shortly.

The American champion has several new men who have yet to make appearance before the local fans. These players will probably be given a chance in teh Hibernian game which will be played on Wednesday, October 6 on Taylor field, Lehigh University.

West Hudson at tiems showed more pep and were quicker on the ball than Bethlehem Steel and dangerous to the very end.

Some surprising results happened in the New York and New Jersey district on Sunday and several of the strong clubs had their colors lowered by junior elevens the Brooklyn F. C. with an all-star lineup was defeated 1 goal to 0 by the Alley Boys, a junior eleven of Newark, composed entirely of American born boys.

Babcock & Wilcox of Newark defeated Jersey City on the Jersey City grounds, 4 goals to 2. Ford and Toole, two former Bethlehems players are members ofthe Jersey City club.

Brooklyn Celtic and Yonders F. C. battled 90 minutes to a goalless tie.

Clan MacDonald, Brooklyn, defeated Continental Club, New York, two goals to one.

West Hudson using the same lineup as played against Bethlehem the day before won its opening league game defeating Halycon Thistles 3 goals to 1.

Columbia F. C., New York, which team will visit Bethlehem on October 9 also won its opening game defeating New York Celtic 2 goals to 1.

The Bethlehem team was put through a strenuous training yesterday. The competition for places on the team is very keen and several combinations will have to be tried out before the strongest and most effective lineup can be gotten. Saturday's game showed that there was a lot of room for improvement. The draw for the National Cup will take place in New York City, October 1, and the draw for the first round American Cup, October 2, in the Continental Hotel, Newark.
