On Dec. 21 the Rams play at West Frankfort. The next week (Dec. 26-27-281 brings the 14th and final Egyptian tourney competition at Harrisburg. So Mt.

Cenlralia, expect edly, and HarrisburR, unexpectedly, jumped to the front in the 1963-64 conference title chase last week. The Orphans side tracked Mt.

Coach Rich Herrin's tall and experienced quintet ha9 spilled Metropolis 58-50 and Johnston City 72-64 in fAvo non-loop starts. Benton lost high-scoring Bobby Crawford and guard Larry Saxe from last year 's starting unit but has an impressive gang returning. Ranger first-teamers are topped by Rick Adkins, 6-7 center, and Will Tennison, 6-4 forward. Bobby Dietz, 6-2, is the other forward, and guards Warren Watson and Tom Gulley each saw plenty of competition last season. Coach Herrin was elated with his Rangers' all-around performance against Johnston City and had special praise for the rebounding of Tennison and the steady leadership of guards Gulley and Watson. Benton received balanced scoring in the Johnston City game with Adkins hitting 19, Deitz 18, Gulley 15 and Watson 14. Mt. Vernon will be up against one of the state's outstanding centers Saturday night when they meet Coach Arlyn Lober's Lanphier cagers at Springfield. The big boy is Cal Pettit, 6 -5, one of the great performers at the Elite Eight finals in Champaign last March. The Rams upset Lanphier 81- 1 70 in Vernois Gym last sea- j son, then the Lions marched | on to compile a 29-5 mark for i the campaign, finally losing to 1 Centralia 50-46 in a semifinal 1 battle in the U. of I. Assembly • Hall. Lanphier lost all of its start-; ers except Pettit, and Peoria ; Central proved last Satuday. night that the big center can 1 be stopped. Peoria ganged up, on Pettit and mauled the Lions i 49-35. j Coach Lober said: "Pettit is our only starter who has seen rugged competition. Everybody knows this, so they just gang up on Cal. Peoria jammed him good. They outshot us, out-defensed us. out-rebounded us find tore us up in general. It's certainly no surprise that they double and triple-team Pettit. I'll only be surprised if somebody doesn't do it!" j NEW YORK (API—Now hear this from Navy's Roger Stati| bach | "1 have a lot to learn nboiti ' passing. I figure I'll leam a lot more about football in the next year and a half. I'm going to work hard next season. I hope we can improve on this sca- i son's record." ; That comforting news for j Navy's opponents came from | the All-America quarterback Wednesday night when he accepted the Meisman Trophy award as the top football player in the country. Staubach led Navy to a 0-1 record, a No. 2 national ranking and a spot in the Cotton Bowl against top-ranked Texas. .

"I have received question- aires from professional football teams but I haven't talked to anyone because I still have a year and a half at the academy and then four years of service." Among the other things, Staubach discussed was the best team he played against this season, and the support he received from the entire N'avy team. "I CHII'I say enough .''.bout the support they gave mr. Tom Lynch would do anything for me on the field or off and I feel tile same way about him. If I hadn't been getting that second block I'd be scrambled eggs." Lynch, the Navy captain, and Coach Wayne Hardin accompanied Staubach to the Heisman awards dinner. They let Staubach monopolize the talk-: ing but Hardin had this to say 1 "I think we have the finest four backfield men ever put to-; gether although I'll admit I never saw the Four Horsemen in action.

They had to run ..or throw," said .Dallas Coach Tom Landry. Brown took the snap from t"ti­ ter. He didn't punt. He passed.

The \ Westerners preferred fancyj passing offenses over solid ground games, Illini backers believed. Coast clubs didn't go in for rugged line play, and frequently tired in the second hall, according to the image. Coach Jim Owens and Wash' ingtnn dispelled the illusion in a hurrv beginning with the late lOoO's. The hard-nosed Huskies knocked off Illini 20-7 in 1901. i and 28-7 in 19R2, and registered [ solid Rose Bowl victories over Wisconsin in 1900 and Minnesota in 19(51. So when Illinois scout Bob Herndon labeled the Huskies "a typical Jim Owens- coached team" it alerted Illini to a tough battle in the 1964 Rose Bowl. Herndon watched Washington defeat Washington State 10-0 in the season finale. "They're hustlers who fire at you everv minute of the game," Herndon says. "They're quick,] and aggressive defensively. Ahovc all, thev like to hit." . •„ - j Jlcriwlon said Washington re- 1 lies greatly on its fullbacks.
