Vernon's Rams 72-56 here last night in a South Seven opener for both Jeams. While tho Rnms did a highly respectable Job of loldlng Crntralla's publicized 6-foot-8 Cliff Berber (he u-nrcd 10 and he'll average more than that for tho wason), the 6-4 Pulley slipped in 11 field goals on 16 shots. Pulley was sixth man on the Orphans' sensational team of last year. He and Berger were the only returnees for Coach Bob Jones from among the boys who saw much action last season. Guard Terry Gamber and center Gary Jones combined for 31 points to pace Mt Vernon's offense. The Rams got 62 shots Crnm the field as against ."i.I for Centralia, but the locals ran into a frigid niaht of firing when they needed a hot one. The Rams' 16 field goals set tip a .258 average from the field. Centralia tallied 25 for 53 and a .471 shooting mark. Mt. Vernon made 24 of 38 free tosses, while the Orphs basket­ ed 22 of 30 charities. The victory was the second of the campaign for Centralia which started with a 72-46 win ;tt. Carbondale. The defeat was ihc- second for Mt. Vernon after iripping Fairfield in the Opener. C'nncli Itud Bnrnman's K:inis, generally regarded •i> I mm IS to 10-polnt 'iiulenlogs going Into the j nunc, held tho agile Or- ! iliaus in check for almost wo quarters. Centralia jumped to a 3-0 edge but Mt. Vernon took over lends at 6-3 and 11-13. The count was knotted at 16-16 after the first period and was 20-20 in the second stanza when buckets by Eldo Garrett and Berger pulled the Orphans in front to stay. Jones scored 13 in the first half and Bob O'Dell, moved to guard for the first time, chipped In with nine in the early going to keep the Rams in the contest. Jones and O'Dell accounted for nine of Mt Vernon's 10 baskets In the first half. .Tohn Wlelt, who drew a starting berth at forward, had tho other first-half bucket. Mt. Vernon trailed by just six at halftime. 37-31, but a third- quarter drouth brought down the curtain on local hopes. Two-pointers by Rapp, Pulley and Offutt pulled Centralia into a 10-point margin. The Rnms missed their first nine field goal attempts in the third period before Weilt finally connected from the side. When the period ended, Wielt's two field goals and two free tosses by Gamber were all Mt. Vernon had mustered on 17 shots from the field. The Orphs had sailed into control, 53-37. Gamber, after nine consecutive misses in the game, turned on a one-man assault in the fourth period and Mt. Vernon played 'em even, 19-10, clown the stretch. The hard-charging Ram guard got 10 of his 10 points in the final period. However, Pulley cashed in two of his under-the-basket specials and Berger came up with eight points to prevent Mt. Vernon from making a serious threat for the lead. The Rams play at Benton next Friday night. Mt. V.

By BOB MYERS Associated Press Sports Writer LOS ANGELES (AP)-Green Bay's offensive machine was fully assembled for the first time in several weeks and ready to roll against the Los Angeles Rams in their important National Football League game Saturday. The Packers, one-ha|f game behind the Chicago Bears in the Western Division race, were solid favorites to defeat the Rams and keep their title hopes alive. The contest, a prelude to a big Sunday schedule in the NFL, was expected to attract upward of 60,000 and a CBS national television audience. The Sunday bill includes the Bears at home against the San Francisco 49ers, and in the Eastern Division the co-leading New York Giants against Cleveland Browns, the Washington Redskins at New York and Cleveland at Detroit. In other NFL games, the Philadelphia Eagles arc at St. Louis. Pittsburgh is at Dallas and Minnesota invades Baltimore. New York has won 11 straight from the Redskins and figures to make it an even dozen and a season record of 10-3-0. Cleveland faces a jinx at Detroit. In nine regular and postseason games, the Browns have won but once, in the 195-1 championship game. The Lions pinned a 13-13 tie on Green Bay in the last game. The St. Louis Cardinals, 9-4-0, could swing back into a tie at the top with a victory over Philadelphia. Chicago, 9-1-2, cannot afford to take any chances with San Francisco, whose major contribution of the season was a startling upset over the Bears Oct. 20. Green Bay, twice beaten by Chicago and 9-2-1, were back at full strength with a backfield that walloped Los Angeles 42-10 at Green Bay Oct. 6. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SPRINGFIELD, 111.

Vernon's Ramlots, experiencing a field goal drought in both the second and third quarters, dropped a 63-36 decision to the Centralia Sophs in Vernois Gym Friday night. The locals managed to score only 11 points during the pair of cold-shooting periods. Centralia's young Orphans chalked up 36 counters over the same time.

Tills was the solemn promise of Navy's celebrated Roger Staubach, the man on the spot today in the 64th game between the two service academies at Philadelphia Stadium. Perhaps no player in modern times has gone into a game tinder greater pressure than this B-foot-2, 100-pound quarterback from Cincinnati, who has received every major citation as the top college player of the year. The eyes of 102,000 spectators In the stadium and millions of others watching on television screens will be glued on the slender, talented field general of the Annapolis team. Ho is the target of every Army man wearing a helmet. The game, with a 1:15 p.m., EST kickoff, is to be televised nationally (CBS-TV>. It's generally conceded by Army and Navy alike—as well as outside observers — that as Staubach goes, so goes the game. If Army, with its strong interior line and aggressive pursuers, can bottle up the flashy Navy quarterback, then the Cadets have a chance of ending Navy's galling four-game winning streak. If Staubach is permitted to cut loose, as he has in most games this year in which Navy has has won eight and lost only one, I Coach Wayne Hardin stands In | score his fifth in a row over his bitter rivals from West Point— a record for a Navy coach. "We have a great deal of re- s|K>el for Slaubach—he's a wonderful back," says Paul Dletzel of Army, "but we don't think any team is invincible. We think we can win." Navy is favored by 11 points to win this final game and sew up a bid to the Cotton Bowl in Dallas where its opponent would be top-ranked, unbeaten and untied Texas. Cotton Bowl representatives are on hand en masse. The Pentagon is expected to give its okay to a ,lan. I appearance by Navy—if the Midi dies win. With Staubach at quarterback a. master of the peeloff pass and run, and such speedsters as I Pat Donnelly, Johnny Sai and Kip Paskewich to keep defenses honest, the Middies have averaged 32.6 points a game. Staubach himself has rolled up an individual total of 1,738 yards completing 101 of 150 passes for the best completion percentage in the country. When he is unable to find a target, he is a threat to breakaway for a long gain. Army has no offensive punch to compare with him, although Ken Waldrop, a 6-2, 198-pound back with speed and power, is rated one of the most dangerous ball-carriers in college football.
