The news real says the Trotters are playing the Philadelphia Spha's. But I am inclined to think he made a mistake as the Washington Generals had been formed years ago by that time. Although they did occasionally use other names so maybe they still occasionally played as the Spha's.
Whatver name they went by even in this old reel you can tell that the Generals were doing what they did best. Playing solid ball while helping the Globetrotters make the crowd laugh.
