A rousing reception was accorded the all-Jewish “Hakoah” football team on its return here from England where it defeated the leading football eleven.
At the station, when the train bearing the victorious players rolled in, were representatives of the football teams and athletic “vereinen” of Vienna. A precession of automobiles decorated with blue and white bunting escorted the players from the station of the “Hakoach” club. Each of the players there was given a golden seal ring.
The entire Austrian press is commenting copiously on the success of the Jewish team and the papers are also reproducing in extenso the reports of the game which appeared in the London “Daily Mail” and the “London Chronicle”.
