SOCCER GOAL JUDGES ARE NOT POPULAR
League Officials Will Probably Discuss Question on Friday Night
REFEREES ARE OPPOSED

That goal judges in American League soccer this year will shortly be tabooed is the belief of those more closely associated with the activities of the circuit. Sentiment throughout the league seems to have arisen against the goal judges, and when the representatives of the league meet in Providence on Friday night of this week, it is believed the question will be one of the chief subjects for discussion.

Even the referees have gone on record as being opposed to goal judges. However, the big kick comes from the club owners, contending that the responsibility of the referee is taken away. Also that a goal judge who is most often selected from among former players or executives of the home town might have a tendency to prejudice on a decision.

Mike Kelly, of New York, Bethlehem's representative, will attend the meeting.
