Booting Throughout the Summer

While opinion is practically unanimous among the managers of the American Soccer League clubs that to obtain best results players should be rested during the summer after the usual strenuous season's grind, Nat Agar manager, owner and angel for the Brooklyn Wanderers apparently disagrees. To Agar the commercial end of his enterprise is more alluring than the sporting element and as a result he has been drawing dividends during the summer while all the other clubs were idle. He has kept his team intact and has played off and on throughout the summer, with a game as recent as last Sunday. Other managers are not entirely in accord with this policy, contending that no club can play the year round and predict that his team is certain to crack when the grind of the league season commences. However, that's Agar's funeral, for if his team flivvers and fails to attract in his home camp, the arrangement of the gate division on the road will contribute very little in paying the freight.
