Missed His First Game on Sunday
Archie Stark, Bethlehem's premier center forward and leading goal scorer, had the unique experience over the last weekend of missing his first soccer game of the season in the lineup for the Steel Workers. Coming to Bethlehem from New York where the season previous he sported the colors of the New York F. C. the brilliant Stark broke in as a Steel Worker in an exhibition game played late in summer and just several weeks prior to the opening of the league season at Boston. Since then he has been the pivot man of the forward line in every game played. ON Friday when the Steel Workers journeyed to Fall River for an exhibition game it was a strange clan of dribblers making the invasion without Stark. And Fall River patrons were among those who were disappointed when the star kicker of the Bethlehem crowd did not make his appearance. However, the day off was well merited for Stark was one of the most consistent players on the team during the season. Archie took many bumps and there were times when his condition was such as to make his appearance doubtful but drastic treatment on the part of the team's trainers usually brought him around in good shape when the playing day arrived. Stark will be among the players to make the trip to Ohio for the two games which will be the nightcap for the club this season.

Jock a Racquet Mender
If Jock Ferguson, star fullback of the Bethlehem Steel team, proves as adept in the new vocation he has adopted for the summer season as he is on the soccer field, he is certain to be swamped with business. Along toward the close of the soccer schedule Jock got busy, hied himself to New York and grabbed up a swell outfit to mend racquets. Installing this apparatus in the Steel gym, the veteran soccer exponent is about as busy as a one-armed paperhanger with the itch. With all the tennis played on the Steel courts, Jock is threatened with quite a busy summer seasons.
