Bethlehem Player in Star Selection
A picked American Soccer League team will face the Uruguayan soccer team at the Polo Grounds, New York, on Saturday afternoon and included in the selection to represent the major soccer circuit is Edwards, Bethlehem goalie. The Uruguayans are a temperamental crew, somewhat inclined, it would seem to get "hot under the collar" and give vent to their attitude with the frequent use of swinging fists. Their game against Newark last weekend materialized into a riot in which things looked pretty bad for a time. In the selection of a team to oppose the Uruguayan eleven we suggest that the league officials made a big mistake in passing up "Bill" Carnihan. "Bill" isn't bragging about it, but his friends will tell you that in his younger days he was quite adept with the padded mitts. A couple of players in the lineup of the caliber of Carnihan would be an excellent precaution against handing out pokes if players lean toward pugilistic tendencies. Carnihan is a red-hot boxing fan and although "Bill" hadn't had the gloves on for some time, he keeps in touch with the modern developments in this profession by taking in all shows that are within reach. Edwards is the only Bethlehem player to appear in the all-star selection. The reason perhaps is that the management is not keen on farming out players with a second round National cup tilt to be waged the following day.
