LEAGUE FOOTBALLERS OF 1950 - THE MEN IN THE CENTRE By PERCY TAYLOR

Argus 3-Jun-1950 p6-7 Weekend Magazine

ARTHUR FOX, who is now accepted as South Melbourne's centre man, is a Red Cliffs boy who returns home at the end of each season. It is almost a case of South shooting at a rabbit and hitting a fox, because Hec. Lingwood Smith, their club secretary, and Jack Graham, who came from the same town to South, went after another player and saw Fox in action. They had no hesitation in bringing him down, and their judgment was not at fault.'

In that season Arthur was runner up to Ralph Shalless (now at Brighton), for best and fairest player in Mildura-Red Cliffs. He played his first senior game in 1948, and up to the end of last season had played in 24 games. Most of his games have been on the wing, and it was as a wing man that he gained selection in the Victorian team.

In the second game of this. season he was sent to the centre after half time, and did such a fine job that it was decided to keep him there. He has fine pace and dash, and his ball control is admirable. –

At home Arthur is a motor mechanic, but during the winter he drives a truck. He is single.
