Dangerous Rival in Drydocks Team
With the National Soccer league well under way, the most dangerous rival in contesting the coveted championship honors of the Bethlehem Steel team, appears to be the Robins Dry Docks team of Brooklyn, N. Y. Thus far this season the Dry Dockers have completely outclassed their opponents in the first two games and in contests have rolled up overwhelming scores. Reports are also current that the Dry Dockers will be still further strengthened by the signing of several players of the championship Bethlehem team. "Bob" Millar, one of Bethlehem's shining stars, is already a member of the squad and is staging a brilliant game. "Neil" Clarke, who as late as last week was employed at the local plant is also playing regularly with the Dry Dockers and although seldom appeared in the Bethlehem lineup during his stay here, is playing a strong game for the Brooklyn team.

Ratican Not Yet Signed
Harry Ratican, the St. Louis product, who last season occupied permanently the center forward berth on the Bethlehem team and accompanied the club on its Scandinavian voyage, has not yet signed his form to play with Bethlehem this year, according to reports. It is understood that Ratican is planning to go elsewhere and the team he has in view is the Robins Dry Docks. It is also understood that Heminsley and Blake, two of the players who featured in the Sweden contest have already decided on their future and that the team they selected will not be Bethlehem. Should Ratican elect to join the Brooklyn squad, their chances of grabbing the American honors becomes brighter. Paired off with Millar, the two would make an excellent couple for any team.
