(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

All members of the Hakoah soccer team who visited the United States last season, outside of those who joined American teams, are anxious to return to America.

Negotiations have been started by the players with the directors of the Viennese Hakoah to release them from their contracts in order that they may join an organization termed the American Hakoah. It was stated there that those players who are now members of the Brooklyn Wanderers and the New York Giants will join the proposed new organization.

The Viennese directors of the Hakoah are unwilling to release the players from their contract.
