with the Association.
Last night Mr. H. Williams on behalf of the Northcote club moved that Perkins be re-registcred. The motion, which was seconded by Mr. J. Leith (Coburg) was agreed to by five votes to four.
The chairman of the committee (Mr. S. Power) told the secretary of the North- cote club (Mr. Ivo Gibson) that Perkins had been re-registered but he added that it was the opinion of the committee that if ever Perkins appeared before the tribu- nal again on a charge and was convicted he would be disqualified for life.
