Call Out the Riot Squad!
Fifty policemen! Get that -- not one less than an even half a century, will be detailed for duty when the New York Nationals and New York Giants lock horns in their second round National cup reply at Starlight Par on Sunday afternoon. Detailed to preserve order and see that the game is completed without interruption. This announcement is not merely a ballyhoo to bring out the case customers but well meant for sometimes feeling does run high when New York teams compete in cup games. The Giants will probably have the most rabid gang of rooters on their side. They usually do, so if the Giants get out into the lead and hold it the patrons will be quite docile. However, if the Nationals toss a threat means anything can be expected. Our guess is that ton the hat-box pitch the Giants will be quite at home and the Nationals will kiss their chances good-bye in further participation in the cup affair.

Hot After the League Bunting
Bethlehem Steel soccer players are gradually recovering from the jolt received here last Saturday when defeated by Boston. The game has been replayed and replayed but somehow or other the one-goal margin which the Agarites defeated them cannot be eliminated. The fur was rubbed the wrong way and probably it is well that it was for perhaps the Steelmen will come back in their remaining campaigning and play in a manner in which the team is capable of. The chance to redeem themselves will be presented on home loam on Saturday afternoon when a determined Providence eleven comes here to tackle them in a league game. Scanning back over the records, the defeat here last Saturday was the first cup setback experienced by the Steelmen in the U. S. F. A. cup tie since that competition was started and that is a good many years back. You can't win them all. That is true, but why not drop the games of no account and win those of most importance?
