NOTE §: USS Colorado game mentioned in Flushing Evening Journal, not Staten Island Advance. In the latter newspaper an angry reader complained that the November 18 Stape game went unreported. The answer was that they only had so many reporters and depended on reports from the teams themselves at times. And the Stapleton team oddly reported nothing about the game, even two days later. In Flushing a local team was to play the team from the USS Colorado who “recently beat the Stapleton team 3-0”]
