Terriers, Marion And H'burg Annex Tourney Crowns By JOHN RACKAWAY Mt. Vernon's 60-52 kayo of Quincy's top-rated Blue Devils highlighted southern Illinois prep basketball on the weekend, but other South Seven teams, notably Carbondaie, gained major tourney victories. Coach Walt Moore's Terriers, carried by the sensational scoring of Les Taylor, picked up three triumphs in capturing the Salem Invitational crown. Carbondale's tourney win, boosting its record to 15-2 for the season, set up southern Illinois' game-of-the week this Friday night when the Terriers invade Vernois Gym. Mt.

Carbondaie had three big scoring nights in annexing the whole hog at Salem. The Terriers rapped Greenville 93-65 an dropped Effingham 78-63 before spilling Centralia. Taylor, who set a tourney record with 49 against Fffingtaani, came back with a 43 • point effort against Centralia in the final.

Practically no defense was played in the Carbondaie - Centralia final in which the Terriers jumped to a 32-23 lead in the first quarter. Orphans Blow Lead Centralia fired back to claim a 75-70 advantage with less than four minutes to play in the game.

Centralia had upped its season mark to 13-3 by bashing Olney 97-61 and Pinckneyville 92-67 before running into the Carbondaie trap. Marion's Wildcats posted two weekend wins by capturing the 27th annual four- team Pyramid tunirney involving West Frankfort, Johnston City and Herrin.

In Bowie Handicap Barbs Delight Tops Salerno By A Neck By ED SCHUYLER JR. Associated Press Sports Wrter Jockey Ray Broussard thought he was done wrong at Hiahleah, so he appealed to the stewards, the FBI of racing. Meanwhile the real FBI was observing the goings-on at Bowie —purely as a matter of relaxation. Broussard claimed his mount pp.ppa Steve, was bumped by Royal Exchange, ridden by Angel Cordero Jr., during the stretch run of the $32,350 Royal Palm Handicap last Saturday, which was won by Royal Exchange. The stewards ruled that the bumping did not affect the outcome of the race. While the stewards were overruling Broussard, J. Edgar Hoover, the director of the FBJ. was watching—as a spectator— the $27,850 Bowie Handicap. What he saw was Barbs Delight pounding home for a neck victory over Salerno.

The second stanza format included a wild, exciting brand of basketball throughout. With Waugh's Warriors trying to maintain leads which amounted to as little as one tally, at 47-46, and as much as ten, 60-50, the Blue Knights tried desperately to gain control.

Vernon By DICK COUCH Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) — The pickings will be easy for the Buffalo Bills at the outset of Tuesday's pro football draft. After that, O.J. Simpson's apparent employers-to-be could run into double trouble: —Getting O.J.'s signature on a Buffalo contract. —And finding a top flight quarterback to complement the brilliant ball carrier from Southern California. With the American and National football leagues' third combined draft session less than 24 hours away, it's a foregone conclusion that the Bills will make Simpson the No. 1 selection. Then they'll have to meet the Heisman Trophy winner's price •—more than 5600,000, according to his business manager. And even with O. J. in the backfield they still won't go places in the AFL without a skilled quarterback, according to Joe Namath. Chuck Barnes, president of Sports Headliners, Inc., said last weekend he and Simpson have a figure in mind in excess of the $600,000 bonus-salary package given Donny Anderson by the Green Bay Packers in 1964. "We're not talking about anything as long term as 10 years," Barnes said. "I don't think O.J. Wants to nlnv font.holl tV\at Inner. He is interested in going into social work after football. "If the Bills were unwilling to meet our price, we would be willing to negotiate. Our No. 1 responsibility will be to work out the best arrangement we can for O.J. "We know how much we're thinking about, but we don't want to end up doing our negotiating in the papers." Namath, the New York Jets' $400,000 quarterback, paused between planes on a trip to the Far East and said he expects the only trouble Simpson will have with the Bills will be "figuring out how to spend his money." Quarterbacks might be at a premium in the two-day draft session, during which 42 college players will be selected over 17 rounds by the 16 NFL and 10 AFL clubs. The Los Angeles Rams will have three first round selection as a result of earlier trades. The San Francisco 49ers and San Diego Chargers will get two No. 1 picks apiece. By the time Buffalo, given the top pick because its 1-12-1 record last season was the poorest in either league, gets a second shot, the quarterbacks rated highest by pro scouts—Notre Dame's Terry Hanratty, Kansas' Bob Douglass, Cincinnati's Greg Cook—figure to be long trnna.
