Another Tie Game for the Champions
The Bethlehem Steel soccer champions are continuing to prove themselves invincible and although they are not registering a victory in every start, they have been successful in staving off defeat and hold the edge on their Scandinavian opponents. Six gams have been played to date and of this number four games ended in a tie-score while in the other two the American players were returned victorious. The Steel Workers, performing before the largest crowds ever played to, are presenting a brand of football that erases all doubts as to their superiority over all other American aggregations and places them in a class to compete with the greatest soccer elevens in the world. A cablegram from Stockholm dated August 25 says:

"The Bethlehem Steel soccer football team yesterday played a tie game with a combined team from Norrkoping. Each team scored one goal."

When it is considered that the teams opposing the champions are comprised of the best players selected from clubs in the various districts, the feats accomplished by the Bethlehem players loom up even more remarkable. The Bethlehem squad, with the exception of probably two or three players, is practically intact and is battling for international honors with the same combination that waded through the National League, National and American Cup competitions last season for the honors.
