Soccer Players Preparing to Vacate
Several weeks ago a quartet of Scotchmen, heralded as finds in soccerdom, arrived in New York and immediately after receiving their clerance in quarantine, journeyed to Bethlehem, where they reported to the Bethelehem Steel management. With the arrival of these men soccer hopes went soaring sky high and it was generally beleived that with the addition of these men to the championship squad, Bethlehem would have little trouble in again annexing National honors. Something apparently went wrong for it is understood that only one of the four displayed form up to expectations, with one other showing possibiliteis able to compete with the men already under contract. The other two it is believed were hopelessly outclassed by the players Manager Sheridan had under contract. The four were given a try out in practice games, after which it was said efforts had been made to sign only two of them. Corrigan, one of the quartet appeared in the game against the Robins at Brooklyn on Sunday afternoon. Now the rumor is prevalent that the other three are preparing to pull stakes and seek other hunting grounds. Morse Dry docks, probalbly a more bitter rival to the Robins than Bethlehem, it is said is urging the men to join their clan.
