Conqueror and conquered clash on the steel field tomorrow afternoon in one of the big local major attractions when Bethlehem Steel F. C. squares off to oppose New Bedford in the first visit of the latter team here this season and the second meeting between the two clubs.

It was New Bedford by its victory over the steel workers three weeks ago that is responsible for Bethlehem battling in fifth position instead of second and tied with Fall River. Had Bethlehem conquered the Steel Workers would now be within one point of the total rolled up by Boston, the league leading club at this date.

With this in mind, the Steel Workers have worked with a determination this week in hopes of avenging that disastrous setback and in a manner that will be convincing that the Steel Workers, a superior soccer aggregation, were caught napping in bowing to the New Bedford club.

Although boasting of no individual stars, the New England dribblers comprise a scrappy makeup, a team that is probably strongest on the defense but occasionally find opportunity of sneaking through with an offensive movement that threatens. However, Bethlehem's experience in the last game has served as a warning against reacting in their efforts and the team to meet the visitors tomorrow will be one that will be on its toes and doing things from the opening to the final blast of the whistle.

New Bedford comes to Bethlehem including in their lineup a former local player. He is Duncan Cameron, a forward, who will play at inside left for the visitors. Cameron joined Bethlehem early in the season, coming here from Canada, where he was reputed as one of the best forwards in the Dominion. He represented Bethlehem in several games, but when New Bedford made a bid for his services, the local management, with practically two sets of forwards, consented to the transfer.

The Steel Workers, according to an announcement made this morning, will field their strongest club, the club that was successful in jolting Fall River on the visit here last week by the score of 2 to 1. The kickoff will be promptly at 3 o'clock with J. Walders of Philadelphia the referee.
