Vernon's tough Rams come firing bock lost night to whip the Salem Wildcats on Vernois Field, 48-26. It was the eighth triumph of the season for coach Gene Halle's Vemois and the 48- point production <— c o m 1 n g mainly on five toudidomis by Marvin Hendricks—represented Mt. Vernon's bait offensive show of tlie year. High scores have been the rule In Ram-Salem games of recent years and last nights' total, of course, was no exception.

IThe Rams, 8-1 for the cam- Jpalgn, fini^ against Carbon'-dale's potent Terriers next Friday night In piling up his five touch- i downs against Salem, big Marv JKendricks gained 232 yards for :his second best offensive night lof the season. Only against -iVafldalia in the season-opener, -when he pidted up 237 yards, •did Marv find nwre running :room. His averai^e per carry - against Salem was 8.9 yards - on 26 attempts. The five • touchdowns boosted Kendriclcs : to 18 for the year and a totaJ - of 108 points. "That boy is an exceptional football player, really tremendous for high school," said Salem coach Thomas after the game. "Kendricks is by far the best runner we've faced this year—or maybe for several years." Offensive end Dave Burnette, who made two fine catches of Tommy Williams' passes, scored the Ranis' first touchdown of the game, and co-captain Dave | Atkinson kept his remarkable: TD per game streak going with j a six-pointer in the second j quarter. Atkinson has nine touchdowns, one in each outing, for 54 points in the season. End Willie Shields, with Jesse Bond holding, booted six extra points. Salem blocked one attempt. Shields has converted successfully on 23 tries for the season. Martin Gets Fumble Neither club was able to move the ball on opening series, but Greg MEirtin recovered a fumbled punt on Salem's 36- yard line to set up the first score. Kendricks lost a yard ranning, then Williams pitched 37 yards to Burnette for the initial TD. Shields booted for a 7-0 lead with 6:30 left in the quarter. Donoho Intercepts Bob Donoho intercepted a Salem pass on the 42 to get the Vemois on offense again. Rocky Yearwood gained 8 but Mt. Vernon was set back by 20 yards in penalties. Kendricks swept to the right behind good blocks, then outdistanced the Salem secondary for a 70-yard payoff. Shields conversion made it 14-0 with 5:14 remaining in the quarter. Martin racked up a Wildcat and Lee May recovered a fumAle on the succeeding kickoff, but Salem stopped the Ram bid on the 14-yard line and took off on an 86-yard scoring march. Quarterback Louis Vogt passed to Steve Heninger for 36 yards to get the march rolling. Fullback Dick Sproull accounted for several strong gains and eventually scored from four yards out. Shook booted the pomt. Rodney Elliott delivered a key block which sprung Kendricks free on a 6&-yard run for a Ram comeback TD on the next series, and Shields' conversion made it 21-7. Jackson Grabs One Ram senior end Leonard Jackson grabbed a fumble on the next kickoff and Mt. Vernon took over on the 25. A great cateh by Burnette produced a first dovwi on the nine, and Atkinson slammed over on tliree straight carries to make it 277. Kendricks, Atkinson and Yearwood alternated on a 52- yard push, Kendricks going over from two yards out to make it 34-7 at halftime.

Tlie Chargers and Raiders meet in San Diego Sunday and the team that loses can just about count itself out of the Western Division race in the American Football League. Even the winner will not be in an enviable position. The Kansas City Chiefs are leading the division with a 7-2 record and test tlieir three-game winning streak Sunday at home against Miami, last in the Eastern Division. San Diego is in second place with the West with a 54 -1 mark and Oakland is one-half game back at 5-4. Thus, somebody is going to have to knock off the Chiefs if the Chargers or Raiders are going to have a chance for the title. San Diego beat Oakland 29-20 on Sept. 25 and Sunday will have the added advantage of its home field. But the Chargers will have to fight against something of a jinx as far as rematches in the league are concerned. In the 11 repeat contests played so far this season, the team that won the first game was victorious in the second only three times. The only repeat winners have been Buffalo, Oakland and Kansas City. The Chargers will be without Lance Alworth, their superior flanker, who hurt a hamstring muscle last week against the Chiefs. Clem Daniels leads the Raider attack — he's fourth in the league in rushing and tied for 10th in pass receiving — that has cai-ried Oakland to victories in four of its last five games. Kansas City figures to have an easy time of it with Miami, which has won just two games, while losing six.

(AP) Powerful Champaign, Rockford Boylan and Centralia snared major conference titles in IIU- short kickoff by Salem to start the second half and the Rams went 553 yards with Kendricks plowing the final paur, 41-7. Atkinson intercepted a Wildcat pass, then snared a 22-yard pass from Williams moments later to spai-k Mt. Vernon to its final score. The Rams had a first down at the two when Kendricks banged across and Shields kicked for a 48-7 lead. Salem Hits 3 Times Salem finished with a flourish in the closing minutes when Ram reserves couldn't muster an offensive threat. The Wildcats marched 60 yards with Vogt scoring on a four-yard run. A Vogt to Kent Sfaten pass keyed the drive. Salem then ground out 62 yards on then plays with Dick Sproull scoring to make it 48-20. With just seconds left in the game, the Rams elected to gamble on a fourth-down play. Salem kicked a fumbled ball back to Mt. Vernon's 20. On first down, Vogt fired to Steve Heninger who made a great catch in the end zone for the final 48-26 score. SOUTH SEVEN Teim w L Ptt 0pp. Centralia 7 0 231 60 Mt.

The Bills took the Jets 33-23 two weeks ago, burring New York quarterback Joe Namath into five in- terceptable passes and stopping the Jets' ground attadf at just five yards on the ground. The Bills lead the division with a 5-31 mark and New York is tied for second with Boston at 4-3-1. Houston plays Boston, which will try to shake off the effects of its last-play loss to Denver last week. A wet field' held the league's leading rusher, Boston's Jim Nance, to minimal gains last week. Houston is riding a three-game losing streak. In the National Football League Sunday, St. Louis is at Pittsburgh, Baltimore plays champion Tigers.

The loss was the fii-st in eight games for Pekin's Chinks, who could still clinch the title next week with a victory over Peoria Woodruff. Woodruff bowed to East Peoria 51-14 and Peoria Central whipped Peoria Bergan 20-13 in other league ga.mes. Halfback Jack Gleason's extra point proved the winning mai-gin as Springfield Griffin completed its first unbeaten season in history with a 13-12 victory over Mattoon. Griffin wound up with an 8-0-1 slate. Ottawa wrapped up a 9-0 campaign, downing i-ival Ottawa Marquette 21-6.

Nofsmger, who spent the first four years of his NFL career as a backup quarterback at Pittsburgh, is filling in for Charley Johnson, out for the season following knee surgery. The Steelers will get two shots at their former teammate in the next three weeks. The Cards draw a bye next Sunday before entertaining Pittsburgh at St. Louis. Rom Smith, who has replaced injured quarterback Bill Nelsen for the Steelers, and a fired-up defense all but ruined the Browns' hopes for a second straight Eastern title last Sunday. The Steelers, however, have lost five straight to the Cards, who will be favored by a touchdown Sunday. The Dallas Cowboys, trailing St. Louis by 1% games in the Eastern race, invade Washington Sunday while Philadelphia four figures to give them the edge.
