An Important Game For Steel Workers, Who Are Primed to Win

Everything is in readiness for the great national League game, Disston vs. Bethlehem Steel, on Tuesday. The snow has been cleared from the field and stands and the biggest crowd of the year is expected to witness the game. Disston is the only club that lowered the colors of Bethlehem to date and although the steel workers have defeated them since in the Red Cross game that game had no official bearing in the season's standings.

Tomorrow's game means a great deal to the steel workers. To win will give them an equal standing with Paterson at the top of the league, whereas to lose means the practical elimination from the league, therefore, the locals can be depended upon to give of their best for the entire 90 minutes.

The over-confidence that had so much to do with the defeat at Tacony has entirely disappeared, every man realizing that no liberties can be taken with a team of the Disston caliber so that the fans can expect a game brimful of interest from the first sound of the referee's whistle. The Disston lineup will be the same as the one that defeated the steel workers at Tacony on Nov. 10th. The steel workers will lineup as follows: Duncan, Fletcher, Ferguson, Murray, Campbell, Kirkpatrick, Murphy, Pepper, Ratican, Easton, and Fleming.
