Will Meet at Hotel Bethlehem to Whoop Up Interest in New League

Bethlehem soccer boosters will assemble at the Hotel Bethlehem this evening and whoop up interest in the impending clash between the home soccer clan and Providence on the former's field on Saturday afternoon. In view of the fact that this game will be one of the two major attractions in Bethlehem and promises to materialize into a thrilling encounter, the booters look for the biggest turnout in recent months.

With Bethlehem returning to the Atlantic League, a circuit recognized as the strongest professional loop in the East, the old threat of the possibility of losing the club unless the support is in accordance with the brand of soccer dispensed, h as aroused the boosters to action.

In this league Bethlehem expenses practically tripled for guarantees are exactly three times higher than those paid in the Eastern League, but most important is the complaint of the visiting clubs relative to the attendance. It is a rare occasion when Bethlehem playing away does not accept the percentage privilege in preference to the guarantee while visiting clubs playing here invariably take the guarantee.

The brand of soccer again promised merits better support and this is another point the boosters want to stress to their members and any others who are interested in the soccer game. Some interesting matters are to be brought up at this meeting and a big attendance is urged.
