Mt. Vernon and Marion, currently tied for the league lead with defending champion Carbondale, play conference foes Harrisburg and West Frankfort Fridy, while Carbondale steps I Benton 0 outside the South Seven for a 1 battle at Cahokia.

Frankfort ....0 1 11 0 3 0 The Rains, regarded by many as the most • likely team to derail Carbondale's South Seven wagon, will get perhaps their first taste of "stiff" conference competition as they host a tough Harrisburg Bulldog club. Considered by many coaches as a dark- horse this season, Coach Ray Harris' Bulldogs own a 2-1 record with wins over I Herrin 0 2 12 0 West Frankfort and Marion both seem to rely upon the running of standout backs. The Wildcats are paced by Gordon Richey, who has accumulated 32 points in his three outings, while the Red Birds have a good open field runner in Don Bolin who has ripped Coach Harry Stewart's crew, after a 47-13 opening game win over Zeigler Royalton, have been on the losing end ever since and can expect nothing but a rough ride in Centralia.

Head- S ame scheduled Friday sends ing the list of standouts will be Herrin's down- trodden Tigers Steve Bundren, a speedy senior j to Centralia. halfback and Randy Cottom, a bullet - armed q ua r terback whose favorite target is another veteran, end Kirk Hess. Bundren, the Bulldogs leading ground • gainer last season, is well on his way to claiming those honors again this season. The bushy* haired workhorse is also one of the area's top scorers this season, with 26 points in three contests. Two other veteran backfield performers, fullback Steve Questelle and halfback Jim Sowles, give the Bulldogs one of the best offensive punches in the area. Marion, after last week waiting until the second half to score against Benton, will travel to West Frankfort in search of a fourth straight victory. The Wildcats are likely to find the going rough in West Frankfort as Coach Ron Winter is hoping to improve over last year's miserable 1-9 record. Marion and West Frankfort have both played a common foe in J o h nston City and if the scores of those games are indicative of the kind of match on tap between the Birds and Cats, fans are in store for a real battle. Marion tripped the Indians 25-0 in the opening game of the season for both clubs while the Red Birds came back the following week in their opener and turned the trick, 19-7.

Benton's Rangers, winless and scoreless in three starts, step outside the conference Friday for a battle at DuQuoin. The Indians, with the south's leading scorer Don Stanhouse calling the signals, have racked up three wins in defense of their Southwest Egyptian Conference crown. In what could prove a tough game for the Terriers, Carbondale goes to Cahokia whose Corn anches battled Centralia to a 6-6 tie last Friday. The Terriers came alive last week, bombing Herrin, 45-0, after barely edging out wins over Cape Gireadeau and Centralia in opening contests.

Carmel at Flora DENVER, Colo. (AP) - To a slender, speedy Negro rookie cuarterb'ack, Marlin "The Magi- Han" Briscoe falls the task of trying to shake the Denver Broncos out of a three game losing slump in the American Football League. Coach Lou Saban said today he will start Briscoe, 5-11, 177 pounds, against Cincinnati at Denver Sunday because of his performance against Boston. With Denver trailing 20-10 and little more than nine minutes to 0 1 play. Saban called on Briscoe to relievo starter Jim Leclair after L'.'clair threw his second pass Q i interception. Briscoe, a quarterback at Omaha but signed by the Broncos mainly for defensive secondary work, threw a 22-yard pass to Eric Crabtree on the first play. He didn't lake I he Broncos into touchdown territory on that u ,; p but after they regained the ball near the close of the game, Briscoe caught the Boston linebackers loose to stop the long pass and ran for long yardage. On the first scamper, he ram- bli.-d for 19 yards to the Boston 12. On the next play, he dashed 12 yards up the middle for a louchdown but time ran out on the Broncos. Briscoe's appearance against Boston was first ever in regular AFL season play by a Negro quarterback. "I was nervous parly in the week when Lou told me I was going to be the backup quarterback," Briscoe said. "But when it came time to go into the game," he said, "I was okay." Until his appearance against Boston, Briscoe's only time in action with the Broncos was for a quarter at defensive corner- back against Cincinnati in a pie-season game.

Phone 548-2470 j By HEESCHEL NISSENSON Associated Press Sports Writer Purdue still is the No. 1 college football team in the country following Saturday's 37-22 trouncing of Notre Dame and Coach Jack Mollenkopf knows why: "My coaching staff—it planned how we were going to take thtm apart. The defense- it rose to the heights. The offensive line—great blocking and dedication to protecing Mike Friipps. The players—they lived up to what we asked of them." While All-American halfback Leroy Keyes was getting the lion's share of the headlines after scoring two touchdowns, passing for a third and covering Notre Dame's Jim Seymour like a blanket, the triumph was a real team effort. "Take the front four (ends Dennis Wirgowski and Bill McKoy and tackles Bill Yanchar and Ron Maree) was so aggressive we didn't have to shoot our linebackers much," said Don Fuoss, Purdue's linebacker coach. Senior linebacker Bob Yunas- ka intercepted a pass and recovered a fumble and the Boilermakers turned both into touchdowns. "Yunaska played his finest game," Fuoss said. "He was graded 87 per cent, highest for a linebacker in a long time." Sophomore linebacker Veno Paraskevas was graded second with 86. Tight end Bob Dillingham caught 11 passes and, when quarterback Phipps was hurt in the first period, Don Kiepert went in and directed the Boilermakers within field goal range. While Purdue was named first on all but three of 45 ballots in The Associated Press' weekly poll, the rest of the Top Twenty t< ok some shuffling. Notre Dame fell from second place to fifth. Southern California, which got two first place votes, climbed from third to second after sliding from second to third the previous week. The other No. 1 vote went to Penn State, which moved up from fourth to third. Florida was ranked fifth, up from sixth. The rest of the Top Ten consisted of Ohio State, Nebraska, Kansas, UCLA and Louisiana State. Comprising the second ten were Alabama, Houston, Miami, Fla., Arizona State, Tennessee, Georgia, Texas A&M, California, Michigan State and Arkansas. The last three made the Top Twenty for the first time this season. Minnesota, Indiana, Texas, Oregon State and Wyoming dropped out.

(AP Wirephoto) Never Daunted, He Tries Again They Laughed At Swami— And They're Still Laughing Henderson Scores 4 TD's Ram Sophs Go Td Air, Rip Frankfort 39-7 Russians In Training At Mexico City By BILL WEBB Coach Sonny Ellis' sophomore Ramlets relied on a potent aerial attack and a stiff defensive line to tromp West Frankfort's soph crew, 39-7. The Ramleta, following a 27-7 ground victory last week over Herrin. took to the air last night to run away with their second straight win of the campaign, Quarterback David Dude was right on target arid completed a high percentage oc his pass attempts. Ronnie Henderson connected for three completions. Henderson Scores 4 Time* Henderson headlined ihe Ram offensive attack by scoring four touchdowns, including a TD pass from Dude. Larry James also snared a Dude aerial and Larry Mays ran for the linal six- pein ter for the locals. West Frankfort's otJy score came on a pass play fa-cm quarterback John Taylor to end Shane Grotti. Ellis Praises Defense Coach Ellis was especially impressed with the performance of his defensive unit. "John Da- vcy and Del Bradriock were the outstanding defensive lineman," he saM, ."They were really tough." The Ramlets this year have rolled up 66 poir.ts and have limited the opposition to only 14. That's not bad for a team that failed to win a single game as freshmen. Next Monday the sophomore Rams will try to up their record to 3-0 when they take on the Harrisburg Bullpups at Harrisburg. By CHARLES CHAMBERLAIN Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP) — They laughed when the 01' Swami picked Notre Dame, Minnesota and Iowa last week. And they're still laughing. Those losses left him at 14-6 for .700 for the season. Here are some last laughs: Purdue 35, Northwestern 14 — The Wildcats must feel like they are living on a bullseye. Last week they took the shots of 0. J. Simpson. This time it's Leroy Keyes. In case you think the Boilermakers may have a let down after puncturing Notre Dame, remember this is the opener of their BFig Ten title drive. Notre Dame 30, Iowa 17—The Irish won't let up as they try to start a climb in the rankings, and the Hawkeyes' defense is too undermanned to stop them. But Iowa's slam-bang sophs could make it interesting. Rookie Dennis Green cut loose for two long TD runs at TCU before Iowa lost. Michigan State 27, Wisconsin 7 —The Spartans' defense is one of the best and their senior quarterback, Bill Feraco, is kicking up his heels in his first chance as a starter. The Badg- j ers, behind Randy Marks and John Ryan, nearly nipped Washington. Another loss would make it eight in a row—longest in Wisconsin history. Ohio State 34, Oregon 13 — Soph quarterback Rex Kern and Dave Brungard are putting variety in the Bucks' attack. After shaking off Southern Metho- es attempted j they tan be ready for anything. Oregon didn't show much in losing 28-12 to Stanford. Indiana 27, Illinois 14 — The Hoosiers, defeated 38-20 by Kansas, could make it more over the humiliated Illini, who have been beaten 44-7 by Kansas and 44-0 by Missouri. So frustrating is Blinois' attack, Bob Naponic completed only one pass last week. In two games, opponents have amassed 854 yards. Michigan 40, Navy 12 — could be that much. Rich Johnson's rushes and Dennis Brown's passes ripped Duke 31-10. Navy was dropped by Boston College 49-15 after a 31-6 pounding by Penn State. Minnesota 26, Wake Forest 10 —After two close defeats, the Gophers should get well here. The visitors have had an extra week of preparation, however, after settling for a 20-20 tie in their opener with Clemson. SPORT SHORTS By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Yankees gave veteran outfielder Rocky Colavito his unconditional release Monday. Colavito, who has 374 career homers, said ho was uncertain whether he would continue in baseball. MEXICO CITY (AP) - The powerful United States track and field may be thriving in training at Lake Tahoe, Calif., but archrival Russia is getting the competitive feel today right where the action will be in the high altitude 19th Olympic Games. Russia's 72-member squad of men and women track athletes, cavorting at Mexico City 's 7,500-fcot altitude since Sept. 14, engages in a two-day international meet on the same type of plastic surfaced track as the Games will be run starting Oct. 13. "We need a tune up competition now that we have got accustomed to such problems as a rine-hour time change, the Tartan track and watching out stomachs on a diet change," said Russia's veteran Olympic coach, Gabriel Korobkov. Among 15 or more entries in the practice meet, supervised by the International Amateur Athletic Federation, are Great Britain, East Germany, Cuba, Australia, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Italy, Argentina, New Zealand, Belgium and host Mexico. "This is just a warmup, but maybe some records will be broken," said Korbkov, "we may have more practice meets, on Oct. 4 and 5. I think the altitude factor has been overemphasized, except for perhaps the distance races. But what is needed is a competitive test under Mexico City conditions." The U.S. track and field squad's arrival will not be completed until Sunday, Oct. 6, a week before the Games start. Only a handful of Uncle Sam's athletes—cyclists, divers and canoeists—are among the 3,171 arhletes already assembled in t!ie gleaming, gaily-festooned Olympic Village complex, undisturbed by the tumultous student rioting more than 12 miles to the north.
