'LOWEST PAID QUARTERBACK' LMI IMC*, CXII., Frl. Jim It, HU INDEPENDENT-^ C-3 Munson Signs Rom Pact.*. Quietly J^ AHptnnty to""****TM*TM***TM^^TM****** .Bill Munson has signed ·'tils 1966 contract at a substantial raise, but the quiet man from Lodi figures he's still "low man on the club." '"smart when I first signed," "I guess I wasn't very the highly talented quarter/back said. "I had a two! · year contract 'at the same ' salary my first two seasons. I guess no one had heard of ' me during college (Utah .State) so I didn't sign for any fabulous bonus. (Ed note: The Rams must have, they made him their No. 1 draft choice in 1963). "I received a good raise this year, but I'm sure I'm still lowest paid of the Rams' three quarterbacks," Bill noted in reference to veteran Roman Gabriel and rookie Billy Guy Anderson. The quick-armed Munson has fully recovered from the knee injury and ensuing surgery that sidelined him last year for the final four games. "Bill's devotion to therapy work is an example for all athletes," said Dr. Daniel Levinthal, who has kept close watch on Bill's right knee since performing the surgery last November. "Bill refused lucrative off-season employment so that he could devote full time to therapy and, with the fine help of trainer George Menefee, he has done a great job," Levinthal reported. Before giving way to Gabriel last fall, the 25-year-old Munson completed 54% of his passes (144 for 267). His best day came against the Chicago Bears when he completed 27 passes, the greatest number of completions by a Ram quarterback FOOTBALL'S PEACE MAKERS Announcing the peace and merger plan between the two former bitter rivals of professional football are (from left) Tex Schram, president of the NFL and head of the Dallas Cowboys; Pete Rozelle, who will be commissioner of merged leagues, and Latnar Hunt, president of the AFL and Kansas City Chiefs. --AP Wlrephoto Indy Crash Ruled as Blameless in the past 14 seasons.

Guards Don Chuy and co-captain Joe Scibelli and tackle Charlie Cowan, all offensive starters in "65, have signed along with place kicking specialist Bruce Gossett and punter Jon Kilgore. It'll be the sixth NFL season for both Cowan and Scibelli and fourth for Chuy. Gossett has led the club in scoring his two seasons, hitting on 15 of 26 field goal attempts and 30 of 32 PATs for 75 points in '65. Kilgore, from Auburn, took over the punting chores at mid-season when the Rams released Billy Lothridge.

The U.S. Auto Club reported today that no one driver can je blamed for the 16-car pileup at the start of the 500-mile race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway May 30. Driver Billy Foster of Victoria, B.C., came under considerable criticism after the accident, but a statement by Henry Banks, USAC director of competition, indicated Foster was not at fault. "The first-lap pile-up at the start of the 500 this year is Bowl TV contract has seven not the fault of any one driver,' Bank's statement said.

Sogge, Stanford shortstop Frank Duffy and California's s h o r t s t o p Ted Parks were the others. Parks, who now plays for Salta, was named utility infielder.
