Bid for Big League Fame
Soccer fans who attended the Bethlehem-Hispano game here on Saturday afternoon were much impressed with the playing of Richard Marshall, former Penn State star, who made his professional debut as a member of the Bethlehem team. On the heavy going it was unfair to judge relative merit but in spite of this handicap among others experienced by the young collegian he showed promise of developing into a star player. Marshall is fast and possesses unusual stamina in going the full route. He can flick the ball with either foot and had several stinging drives at the net. He was idle since the close of the college schedule last December and partook in no training due to the attention he game the mid-year examinations. There is probably only one obstacle to overcome in determining his future. He is not of the stocky physique characteristic of big league players, an asset which is essentially important in standing the knocks and bumps of hard playing.
