In the contest last evening, played before some 1,200 fans, the Ram^ started the fireworks quid when Robert Mossey intercepted a Bulldog pass on the fifth play of the game. After a fumble and an incomplete pass their charge was stopped cold when an attempted field goal was short of the mark. On the runback, the BuUdogfS took possession of the ball on their own 30 yard line, but covildn't muster up c potent attack. Rod Bollinger was forced to kick and the fine Bulldog pamter let loose a towering 75 yard punt. After that botli clubs seemied unable to gain much ground and exchanged possession of the foot ball quite readily. The fu-st quarter ended without either club hitting the score sheet. The Rams started the second quarter with the ball on their own 53 yard Mne and in six plays marched over the f - r s t touchdown of the game. Nathan Schoepp capped the 57-yard march by orashiing over from the six yard line and put the Rams ahead W). Norbert 'Drambowsky failed on tlie convert attempt. The Bulldogs hit back quickly taking the ball on theh" own 25 yard line after the kick off and march 85 yards in 14 plays to even the score. Fighting for the touchdown both Brian Veres and Bollinger failed to crash the Rams goal line stand. With a third down goal to go situation Bollinger attempted an end sweep, but was caught behind the line^of scrimmage and some how managed to lateral the ball to Stu Dow before being dropped. Dow broke around the opposite end and went over the goal line standing up. The convert attempt by Greg Hamilton hit the ci'oss bar and bounced away leaving the score tied 6-6. Botli clubs played much tighter football after that until the gun went off to end the first half of play. Midway throught the third quaTter, with the score still 6-6 BoUinger bemg chased by two Ram defenders threw a beautiful pass to Rudy Degroot on the i-un for tlie go ahead points. The play covered some 60 yai-ds. Doug Howes quickly led his club down field 77 yai-ds in eight plaj's to hit pay-dirt. Rick Las-tuka capped off tlie march when he pulled in a perfect pass from quarterback Howes in tine Bulldogs end zone. The convert attempt was good by Norbert Dambrowsky, but was nullified because the Rams were off-side on the play. Dambrowsky tried the convert over 10 yards further and failed to put the ball over. Winston Churchill will face the Cougars next weekend and tills encoujiter should be an interesting affair. , - By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Chicago Cubs are a little bit richer today, thanks to Ferguson Jenkins, and Philadelphia Phillies, got a lift from Oscar Gamble to escape the embarrassment of the basement as the National League regular season came to a close. Jenkins, the Cubs' hard-throwing right>-hander, mowed down New York Mets Thursday nifilit on a two-hitter, naiUng down second place In the East by a game over the defending world champions with a 4-1 victory. The second-place fmish Is worth approximately $1,300 per man while third is worth $400. Jenkins, 22-16, a 20-game winner for four consecutive sea-sons held tlie Mets hitless for six mmngs before Ken Singleton doubled opening the seventh. Singleton also doubled in the ninth. The Cubs got a two-nui single from Randy Hundley and Joe Pepitone's 26th homer, a two-run shot, in support of Jenkins, who struck out eight and walked two.

The triumph lifted the Phils into fifth place, one-half game ' ahead of the Expos, who finished last. Philadelpliia moves into a new park next season.

Umpires Close To Terms Strike To Be Averted Gonzales Bows Out In Style VANCOUVER (CP'-Pancho Gonzales, at 42 known as the grand old man of tennis, went out in ^and old style Thursday in a third-round match of a $40,000 international tournament the near-capacity crowd of 3,000 will remember for a long time. His opponent. Rod Laver of Australia, defeated him 6-4, 7-6. Laver, 10 years Gonzales' junior, is this year's leading money winner on the professional circuit. Gonzales, clearly the c^o^vd favorite, got into trouble in the second set when Laver broke his service and took a 4-2 lead. And the shot which gave Laver his point was made by Gonzales, a close-to-the-net volley which Pancho put into the net. CHICAGO (AP) - Repre-s e n t a t i V e s of the Major League Umpires Association and their attorney, John Reynolds, met Thursday night in a Chicago hotel, apparently to discuss baseball's latest pay offer to prevent a threatened strike. The Chicago S'un^Times saild the new offer was for $3,000 for the playoff series starting Saturday "It seems quite likely tiiat a strike will be averted ... A compromise of $4,000 for the playoffs and $8,000 for the series may be acceptable to the umpires group." Neither Reynolds nor an umpire representative could be reached while their private meetmgs were gomg on. The umpires, paid $2,500 for playoffs and $6,500 for the series last year, are askmg $5,000 and $10,000. CALL MEETING They have called a meeting of all 50 members gathered at the hotel for today, presumably for a strike vote or a vote on any compromise. Meanwhile, baseball commissioner Bowie Kuhn in New York, said "every effort is being made to reach an agreement . . . Whatever the outcome, the league championships and World Series will be played as scheduJed." The best-of-five league playoffs open Saturday with Baltimore Orioles at Minnesota Twins for the American League title and Cincinnati Reds at Pittsburgh Pirates for the National League crown. The best-of-seven World Series will open Oct. 10. Twelve umpires, six in each league, are assigned to the playoffs. Six, three from each league, are assigned to the '- World Steries. Beman Takes Lead By Two WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) -Deane Beman charged in with a record-equalling eight-under-par 63 to grab the first-round lead by two strokes in the $60,000 Azalea Open golf tournament Thtjrsday. Beman, 32, of Bethesda, Md., winner of the Milwaukee Open earlier this year, had eight birdies and 10 pars in his 30-33 round to tie the Cape Fear Country Club course record. In case of a walkout, it was suggested imipires may be re-cruited from the minor leagues, whose umpires are not members of the association. WON'T BREAK STRIKE Augie Donatelli, a National League umpire who is a director of the association, said a spokesman for the minor league umps had assured him that they would not engage in strike-breaking activities. Meanwhile, Marvin MiUer, executive director of the Major League Players Association, said that "the players would be disturbed to have something less than the calibre of major league umpires working the games." He indicated that in case of a strike the players couldn't ^ve much more than sympathy and moral support. The angriest Angel poked two early liits before sitting out the last eight innings of California's 5-4 season-closing victory over Chicago White Sox Thursday night and nipped three-time titl-ist Carl Yastrzemski of Boston Red Sox by a whisker in the league's closest batting race in 17 years. Johnson, removed from the ' game after beating out an in-field tap in the fifth inning for his second hit in three at-bats, finished his first American League season with a .3289 average. Yastrzemski went l.for-4 in the Red Sox' final game Wednesday night for a .3286 windup. Acquired from Cincinnati Reds last winter in an inter-league deal, the reticent, 27-year-old outfielder feuded with sports writers and fought with team-mates on the way to nis dramatic conquest. But when he trotted off the field after hi.s decision scratch single, the press box denizens joined an Anaheim crowd of 5,689 in a long, standing ovation. In other regular season finales, Baltimore Orioles shaded Washington Senators 3-2 for a club-record winning streak of 11 games; Minnesota Twins blanked Kansas City Royals 4-0; Detroit Tigers squeezed past Cleveland Indians 1-0 and Oakland Athletics beat Milwaukee Brewers 5-4.
