Download PDF for this date

Concluding their good-will tour of the United States, the Hapoel Soccer team last night lost 2 to 0 to a picked team of the American Soccer League. More than 20,000 fans attended the game, which took place at Ebbets Field.

The Hapoel players will leave for Palestine on Sunday with a record of three matches won, two lost and four tied. The gate receipts will go towards building a modern sports stadium in Palestine.
