The American Ort will take part in the direction of the forthcoming tour of the Hakoah Club of Vienna in the United States, a statement from the headquarters of the Ort declared. By arrangement with Mr. Nathan Agar, owner of the Brooklyn Wanderers, which is sponsoring the tour, the Ort will participate in the coming visit of the Jewish players, which is scheduled for April and May of the coming year. Preparations are already being made in Vienna, and the Club has been strengthened by the acquisition of several Jewish stars noted throughout Europe.

The last tour of the Hakoah, which gave much impetus to Jewish participation in athletics, was sponsored by the American Ort. Out of this tour has grown a persistent demand for the return of the Vienna players, culminating in an invitation extended by the United States Football Assn., and addressed to the Hakoah and to the Oesterreiches Fuss-ball Verband.

The coming tour will include visits to Philadelphia, Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago, Toronto, Montreal, Boston, Newark and New York.
