Gotham Fans Peeved at Postponement
Soccer fans in and around Brooklyn are not taking very kindly to the postponements of games in which the Bethlehem champions are slated to appear. The Robins Dry Docks, one of the most dangerous contenders for the honors this season, have twice been scheduled to meet the champions and are anxious to have the tilt over with but due to the fact that several of the Bethlehem stars are still abroad the officials have sanctioned the postponement of the game. It is also hinted that the Bethlehem management fully realize the strength of the opponents and want to muster together their full strength before going to the turf. Commenting on the game, the New York Times says:

"The soccer game between the Morse Dry Dock Brooklyn soccer team and the Bethlehem eleven, scheduled for next Sunday in Brooklyn, has for the second time this season been postponed at the instance of the Bethlehem management. The postponement is keenly disappointing to Brooklyn and New York soccerites, as well as to the Morse management, which had advertised the coming championship contest. While Charles Menzles, Secretary of the Morse Club, was informed by Bethlehem that it had not yet assembled the team which returned from the exhibition tour of Norway, Sweden and Denmark, the local fans believe that the Pennsylvania team is awaiting the outcome of the Morse team's next national League game. This has been arranged for next Sunday at Morse Oval, and a victory for Morse team will place that team at the head of the National League.
