1938 - League Permit: K. Baxter - Werribee to Carlton2

LEAGUE FOOTBALLERS OF 1950-FULL FORWARDS

Argus 27-May-1950 p7 The Argus Week-End Magazine

KEN BAXTER talked of retiring this year, but he found the call of the game too strong, and is again kicking goals for Carlton. He has had a long and distinguished career since he came from Werribee in 1941. Altogether he has kicked 307 goals in 139 games, despite the fact that he was on war service in 1942, 1943, 1944, and part of 1945.

Ken is sturdily built and has a great pair of hands. He is a left footer, and frequently "slews" his shots, but he still kicks his share. There was a period when he was a centre half-back-and a good one. His good marking and his keen judgment were of infinite value in that position. Many good judges think that he has played his best games there.

There is now another Baxter at Carlton-Bernie, a much younger brother, who has the Baxter facility of holding his marks and the Baxter habit of missing too many shots. Still, Bernie is fast and dashing, and will be a useful player. Ken runs a grocery store in one of the northern suburbs.
