A Swing Along Athletic Row

Big Leaguers to Coach Youngsters
The fine points of soccer are not at the beck and call of the public school youngsters. That is, if the athletic authorities deem it advisable to accept the liberal offer of the Bethlehem management. Soccer is a popular sport among the school youngsters and is played probably more extensively here than in any other public school in the state. In line with the work planned by the Bethlehem Boosters, particularly insofar as the development of the game among the youngsters is concerned, the management of the Bethlehem team has presented an offer to allow its players to coach the school boys. One player would be assigned to a school t stated periods. It is an offer that should be given weighty consideration.

Fall River's First Defeat
In opening the league season a week ago, Fall River had the unusual experience of going down to defeat in an early game. Springfield turned the trick and Springfield being the new member in the circuit, the feat was heralded as an accomplishment extraordinary. Any Fall River defeat is always interesting to Bethlehem fans. More significance, however, is attached to t he setback at the hands of Springfield. Two former Bethlehem players were in the lineup of the team to take the measure of the league champions. Neil Turner, with New Bedford last season, was transferred to Springfield and was at his accustomed outside right position. Dave Carson, release at the close of last season, was between the uprights for the baby member of the league.
