The New England Tour
With a squad of 16 players the Bethlehem soccer team invaded the New England States, meeting the three top clubs in the former outlaw circuit, and were forced to bow in two games and share laurels in a draw in another. Boston and Fall River were the victors while Providence engaged Bethlehem in a draw. Bethlehem was quite ambitious in tackling a program of three games in three consecutive days against three of the leading clubs in the American Soccer League. However, the mission was more exclusively an expression of good will rather than one to conquer.
Recruiting to Full Strength
In another two weeks it is understood that the Bethlehem booters will be recruited to full strength and by that time some satisfactory solution will probably have been worked out whereby a merger of the Eastern and American Soccer leagues will be amicably effected. Willie Reid, big Irish halfback, is expected to join his mates today or tomorrow. The last of the absentees, Alec Massie, is expected to put in his appearance the following weekend. Johnny Rollo, on the injured list, is hoped will be available for service by the end of this week, but McDonald, a crippled fullback, will likely have to rest up another week before hi is again able to don his togs.
