Soccer Notes

Everything is in readiness for the fourth round national cup game at Bethlehem Steel field tomorrow between the Goodyear Rubber Company of Akron, O., and Bethlehem Steel F. C. The Akron team is expected here early tomorrow morning and the latest reports from their training quarters are to the effect that all players are in good condition for the game after the greatest session of training they have e3ver undergone. They are particularly fortunate in having a building so large that they can do all their training indoors and should be in condition to play the full ninety minutes at a fast clip. The Steel Workers have also been training hard for the game and ought to be able to last the pace just as well as their opponents. One big disappointment for Bethlehem came in the announcement from Dr. Shroudy's office of the Bethlehem dispensary that Harry Ratican would be unable to take part in the game owing to a severe attack of tonsillitis. Harry's absence undoubtedly will be felt in the Bethlehem lineup, as his aggressiveness is a great asset in cup games, particularly against teams who play the western style of football. The Steel Workers are fortunate in having capable substitutes who are ready to take to the field at a moment's notice and no doubt the team that will represent Bethlehem will be able to give the visitors the greatest game of their career. The game will start promptly at 3 o'clock and extra car service will be run from Third and New streets. The probable lineup of both teams is as follows:

Bethlehem Steel -- Duncan, Wilson, Ferguson, Fletcher, Campbell, Pepper, McKelvey, Butler, Millar, Forrest and Fleming.

Goodyear Rubber Co. -- Jones, Poynton, Tilley, Mcculley, Simmons, Campbell, McDonald, Valentine, Ainscough, Pidwell and Simplson.

Campbell, the left halfback of the Goodyear team, is a former Scottish internationalist, and it will be interesting to compare his work with Captain Campbell of Bethlehem.

Bethlehem fans will have their last opportunity tomorrow of seeing Bethlehem in action in cup games on Bethlehem Steel field and no lover of the game ought to miss the opportunity of cheering the Steel Workers on to victory. Nothing helps the morale of a team more than enthusiastic fans on the side lines.
