The Globe -- Bethlehem

A Swing Along Athletic Row

A Perfect Slate
With four games played and these still in the process of experimenting, the Bethlehem Steel F. C. can boast of a clean slate. All of which forecasts that when the machine gets rolling the American Soccer League champions are again going to be very much in the major league. Bethlehem launched its season with two games in Canada, turning in a victory at Hamilton and tying with United Ulster in Montreal. Over the weekend and under extreme adverse weather conditions the Steelmen showed a pronounced superiority over the Brooklyn Wanderers, defeating Nat Agar's pets decisively in both games.

No Lineup Intact
With a wealth of new talent it will be several weeks probably before the Steel soccer management decides on a permanent club and then not definitely, for the plan of the coming campaign is to spare players as much as possible and with the big list of talent the men will alternate frequently in the weekend double-headers. In the four exhibition games played thus far, the club has experimented with the new talent and the newcomers as well as the veterans have acquitted themselves favorably. Another exhibition game is on tap next Sunday, when Bethlehem will meet the New York Giants in a game which will dedicate the new Starlight Park, the home of the Gotham booters for this season.
