An athletic club under the name of the Hakoah Athletic Club, was formed in New York.

The new club originates from the Maccabean Athletic Club, which has been in existence for five years.

The Executive of the club consists of Dr. Max Kraus, president; Dr. Eugene Bar, vice-president; Diana Solomon, treasurer; Arthur Hirschler, Arthur Wiener, H. Magid and Harry Feigenbaum.

The Hakoah Athletic Club is a member of the International Soccer League of New York, the Empire State League and the German-American League.

The club plans next season to build up its activities, which will include soccer, wrestling, boxing, fencing, swimming, modelling its work after the Viennese Hakoah.
