West Perth Honours Wally Price Wally Price, the West Perth back p6cket player, was pre sented with a life membership medal by Mr. S. Heal, M.L.A., a West Perth vice-president and former captain-coach of the team, at the club's annual re union in the Leederville Town Hall last night. Mr; Heal Said that Price had already played 235 games for the club, and as he was only 27 years of age he should give West Perth' several more years of valuable playing service. Mr. Heal said that, iq addi tion to his worth as a player, Price was valuable as a club man. In reply, Price said that he had beeh lucky in his football career and had received few in juries. Ground Amenities In responding to the toast of the Perth City Council, the Lbrd Mayor (Mr. J. Murray) said that the council realised its re sponsibility for the provision of suitable amenities at Leeder ville' Oval and other sports grounds within the council's boundaries. Because of the scarcity of building materials, many im provements contemplated by the council could not be car ried out as quickly as the coun cil wished. However. the council was pre pared to spend money as soon as materials were available. Mr. Murray congratulated the West Perth team on its high standard of football in recent years. The president of the league (Mr. R. P. Rodriguez) congrat ulated Peter O'Donohue, the West Perth coach, for "his courageous effort" in the grand final last year. O'Donohue went to the full back " position and played against the South Fremantle centre-forward, Bernie Naylor, when the West Perth full back, Ray Schofield, was injured. (Picture, Page 21.)
