Still Hopeful for Game
Executives of the Bethlehem soccer team have not abandoned the hope of meeting the touring Sparta Club in an international clash in New York on October 31. The American Soccer League has said no because Indiana Flooring, a New York club, doesn't want it. In refusing to sanction the game, many soccer followers will doubt the sincerity of the league executives in working for the best interests of soccer. Opinion may differ, but ours is that the game and all others of the like in the future should be encouraged rather than refused. To play the game Bethlehem should be a satisfactory compromise for Indiana Flooring. But to strike a bargain with Mr. Vieberg, who has much to say in regards to Indiana's policy, is going to be a task. Most surprising is the attitude taken by F all River at the league meeting when the Sam Marks' delegation tossed its vote against Bethlehem.
