LOS ANGELES (P) - Quarter-
back Bill Munson and a third
round draft choice were traded by
the Los Angeles Rams to the' De-
troit .Lions yesterday for three
players and a first round choice.
The Rams announced they got
quarterback Milt Plum, flanker
Pat Studstill and halfback Tom
Watkins in the National Football
League deal.
Munson, 26, from Utah State,
has been a reserve behind Roman
Gabriel with the Rams and
played out his option last season..
He became a free agent on May 1.
Reportedly, he receives a long
term contract with the Lions and
a promise of a starting job.
Sports Editor Bud Furillo of the
Los Angeles Herald-Examiner said
the contract for Munson calls for
an estimated $365,000 over the,
"We had to give up a lot to get
him," said Joe Schmidt, head
coach of the Lions at a news con-
ference in Detroit. "But I defi-
nitely felt that we needed a new
quarterback and in my book, Mun-
son was the best one available.
"We realize that we have given
the Rams some players who will
help them this year. But we are

Arthur J. Bergstrom, assistant
executive director of the NCAA
told reporters the Wichita State
case "was one of the most wide-
spread and willful violations ever
to come before the council."
He praised the university ad-
ministration and the Missouri Val-
ley Conference for "drastic, imme-
diate and effective" steps taken in
the case. These included the dis-

charge of the director of athletics,
the head football coach and two
assistant coaches.
The conference ruled last month
that Wichita State would not be
eligible for post-season football,
competition in '1968 and 1969 and
could not app'ear on any NCAA
football television program for
three seasons, beginning this fall.
The NCAA council said it will
go along with these sanctions.

The council decided to send two
representatives to organizational
meeting of the proposed U.S. Ama-
teur Wrestling Federation. This is
tentatively scheduled for late July
or August, probably in Chicago.

Detroit, which posted a 4-7-2
mark in Schmidt's first year as

yards passing last year, a 33 per
cent drop from 1966, when the
team compiled 2,752 yards passing.
Schmidt indicated, all winter
that the team would need a new
quarterback in order to win and

three months.
