Football Incident Investigated

A charge ol unseemly conduct against B. Woods, of Collingwood, was sustained by the tribunal of the Victorian Football League last night, but he was given the benefit of an element of doubt and no penalty was imposed.

Woods uns reported by n boundary um- pire (L L Baker), who alleged that lie attempted to kick Beames, of Melbourne, lu the second quarter of the match between Melbourne and Collingwood on Saturday. Mr A E Dummett appeared for Woods.

Baker MI id that the incident occurred alter a scrimmage on the Melbourne for vv ard line After the ball had been cleared by n Melbourne pla. cr he saw Woods make a kick at Beames, who was moving away from the icrlmmaßc. Ho had a clear view of the incident, nnd the ball was 30

i yards away. He told Woods immcdiattlv

that he would be reported.

Woods denied that he attempted to kick Beames. Beames, he said, was standing next to him, and If he had attempted to kick the Melbourne player he could not

have missed him.

Beames said that he was on the outskirt of the scrimmage when the ball was kicked toward the centre, and a Colllngwood player loomed up In front of him. ne couid not say whether Woods made a kick at him

or not.
