And Now a Collegian
Richard Marshall is his name but they call him "Dick." He hails from Homestead, a hot bed for soccer, and is a student at Penn State College. Played on the Varsity for three years, was the highest scorer and honored with the captaincy of the team in his Senior year. The unanimous choice of college coaches as an All-Collegiate forward. This describes the young collegian who on Saturday afternoon will don the Blue and White of the Bethlehem booters and make his first bid for big league fame. If he succeeds he will be the first American-born collegian known to this writer to make the grade in the big show. Marshall will get his change against Hispano for in the tentative lineup announced this morning the name of the Penn State athlete is induced at his favorite position of inside left.

Extending the Circuit
Is Baltimore ripe for big league soccer? If crowds mean anything the Maryland metropolis is fertile and the Eastern Soccer League can hardly make a mistake in recruiting a club to represent the hometown of the Baltimore Orioles. The scribes made much ado over Bethlehem's visit for the cup game last Saturday and were unanimous in stating that the 3,000 or more rabid rooters who turned out for the game was the biggest crowd ever assembled for a soccer tilt in that city. Two and three thousand crowds are paying propositions and an average of such an attendance should guarantee talent to cope with the best in the country.
