A Tentative Schedule Calling for Ten Games Abroad Has Been Arranged

Ten games appear upon the tentative schedule arranged for the Bethlehem Steel Football Club, American soccer champions, on its invasion of Scandinavia, beginning next month. The team which will sail from New York next Monday to play exhibition contests abroad under the auspices of the United States Football Association, will probably proceed to South America after the Scandinavian tour. It is understood that Secretary Thomas W. Cahill, who made the arrangements and selected the players for the tour, is in touch with the authorities in Brazil and that the trip is assured.

Dates for the games to be played in Norway have yet to be arranged by the Swedish Football Association, which is working out the schedule. A baseball team selected from the ranks of the seventeen footballers making the trip will play a series of intermediate dates in the Stockholm Stadium agaisnt the strong Vasteras Baseball club, at Bassteeras, and possibly also at Gothenburg.

While in South American, the team will play a six-game series in Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Santos, Brazil, under the auspices of the Brazilian Federation of Sports. The terms of the Brazilian organization have been accepted, but no dates have been announced. The United States champions may meet in Brazil the famous Flumenese Club, which recently won the championship of South America in a series in which Argentina and Chile were strong competitors.
