Better With Each Game
The box office receipts indicate that the Bethlehem Steel Soccer Club has struck a favorable response from Philadelphia soccer enthusiasts. The club in determining to play its remaining league games in the Quaker City has been received with open arms and the moral support has thus far been quite encouraging. The gate for the game last Saturday when Bethlehem defeated Brooklyn was the biggest of the three games played in Philadelphia and forecasts an increased attendance for each succeeding game. The number of cash customers who filed through the gates at the somewhat small field at I and Tioga numbered more than 2,300. With such support the club will pay its own freight. It is surprising, too, the support given an outside team for while Bethlehem has decided to play its remaining games this season in the Quaker City, no effort has been made to change the name of the club to Philadelphia. In recognition of the great prestige enjoyed for years by the Philadelphia team, the wisdom of changing the name is a matter of grave consideration. Still it may come to that for if Philadelphia fans continue to give their support they will undoubtedly want a club to be known as a Philadelphia club.
