Ron Cooper returned to the team for his first senior game for the year. Cooper had been suspended by the Carlton committee, at the committee's pleasure, for striking Jim Francis in a practice match. After he had missed the first three games, the suspension was lifted. He resumed training and played his first game last week in the Reserves. (see Herald May 19 p30)
