Boosters and Friends Urged to Attend Meeting at Hotel Bethlehem

With important discussion to be held, members of the soccer booster club and all other persons interested in the Bethlehem soccer team, are urged to attend a meeting to be held this evening at the Hotel Bethlehem. The meeting will be called promptly at 7:30 o'clock.

Present at the meeting will be a representative of the Bethlehem team who will make a report on the business transacted at the meeting of the Eastern Soccer League held in New York on Monday night.

This report should be of vital interest to all boosters for it will include alleged activities of the American Soccer League in trying to hinder the success of the new organization.

Rumors prevalent around New York are to the effect that quite a few of the American Soccer League clubs are disappointed with the attendance at recent games and apparently have reason to be by noting the overflow crowds that have attended the games on the home grounds of the New York Giants. The latter club, as well as the New York Hakoah, are now playing before the biggest crowds ever to turn out for a league game.

The league schedule for this weekend will bring another new club to Bethlehem in the New York Hispano, a team comprised mostly of Spanish players with the clever Crilly, star Scotch player, at center forward. Crilly is one of the best goal scorers in the new league and now occupies a position with high scorers.
