The Usual Break
Trailing in fourth position with two games fewer than either of the top notch clubs, Bethlehem Steel has a tough assignment cut out for the weekend jaunt to the New England states. It is to meet in the final encounter, Fall River, twice league champions and at present tied for the league honors with Providence. Most significant of the weekend program is that Fall River is not scheduled for a Saturday tilt and will rest up for the invasion of Bethlehem on the home grounds on Saturday. Bethlehem Steel is not as fortunate. Two games are the lot for the Steel Workers, the preliminary of which will be against Shawsheen Club, the new member of the league. Shawsheen has been a more or less in-and-outer thus far this season, but not so brilliant on other occasions. When Shawsheen met Fall River, the two-time champions, in an early season game, the club was apparently in the right mood, for it has been the only club thus far to set down Fall River with a defeat. Shawsheen is on the heels of the Steel Workers for fourth place, and incidentally with one game less than Bethlehem, which virtually places the club on the same basis with Bethlehem. One point is the margin of difference in these positions.
