punctuated by a series of stun-

was tackle Dan Dierdorf who went

An altered Michigan hockey
team takes to the ice tonight
against the nationally third
ranked Minnesota-Duluth Bull-
dogs, in an attempt to break its
three game losing streak and break
out of the Western Collegiate
Hockey Association cellar. Head
coach Al Renfrew has again jug-
gled his lines in an attempt to
get his icers back on the win-
The Paul Gamsby-Brian Slack-
Merle Falk trio, the highest scor-
ing Wolverine line, is the only
one which remains intact.
Tom Marra, who played on a
forward line last week, is back on
the defense, while Michael Jarry
takes Marra's place on the Bernie
Gagnon-Rick Mallette line. Two
centers switched linemates: Julian
Nixon now plays between Bucky
Straub and Gary Connelly, while
Rene Desmarias anchors Bob Fal-
coner and Rick Jackson.
A fifth line, which probably will
only be used sparingly by Ren-
frew, sports Roy Ashworth, Bill
Pritula and Dave Gubow.
Renfrew, like most Michigan
fans, is unable to fully explain the
Wolverine's last place position in
the standings. "You can't win
when you're playing, bad hockey,"
Renfrew admits, "but, except for,
about 30 minutes in the last game
against Denver, we've really been
playing some good hocky.
We've got to keep going but we're
not playing bad hockey,".
Aside from changing his lines
slig tly, Renfrew is not doing
anything special for the game. "All
wefk long," he admits, "we've
been working hard. We've probab-

PHILADELPHIA (P) - Corky
Calhoun made a desperate 25-foot
jumper with two seconds left in
regulation play to tie Princeton
and the fourth ranked University
of Pennsylvania went on to a 66-
62 basketball victory last night.
The victory was the 16th
straight for the unbeaten Quakers.
It was Princeton's ninth loss
against five victories.
Rams was not renewed following
the 1970 season ,sent only one
player-linebacker Marlin McKee-
ver-to Los Angeles in return.
But he parted with the Redskins'
No. 1 and No. 3 choices this year
and their third through seventh
draft picks next year.
Before the round ended, trades
involving three quarterbacks were
announced, Philadelphia acquir-
ing Barton in a trade with De-
troit and sending Snead to Min-
nesota. Horn was traded by Green
Bay to Denver.
Despite the trades, the selec-
tion of Plunkett undoubtedly at-
tracted most of the attention, cen-
tering as it did around Boston's
dilemma of whether to select the
Stanford passer or accept one of
the 17 trades offered in exchange
for the No. 1 pick.
Plunkett, the most highly pub-
licized collegian since O. J. Simp-
son two years ago and a candidate
for a contract in the $200,000
neighborhood, said he was going
to await Boston's first offer before
even thinking about money.
The Jets, interrupted by the an-
nouncement of the Rams-Redskin
trade, tapped John Riggins of
Kansas as the first running back
,picked. Atlanta then took Joe
Profit of Northeast Louisiana and,
following Pittsburgh's selection of
wide receiver Frank Lewis of
Grambling, Green Bay picked
John Brockington of Ohio State.
In the trade with the Vikings
for Snead, the Eagles acquired
tackle Steve Smith and Minneso-
ta's No. 2 and No. 6 draft choices
this year and No. 3 pick in 1972.
In the Detroit trade, the Eagles
gave up their No. 2 pick in this
draft and two choices next year
DETROIT () - Rene LeClerc
and Frank St. Marseille scored
early goals last night and then
the goal keepers and defenses took
over as the Detorit Red Wings and
St. Louis Blues played to a 1-1
National Hockey League tie.
Detroit scored on a powerplay
set up by passes from Garry Unger
and Tom Webster, with LeClerc
snapping the puck home from in
front of Blues goalie Glenn Hall.
St. Marseille tied it 30 seconds
into the second period when he
broke past the Wings defense to
take Jim Lorentz' rebound off the
backboards and fire it past Detroit
goalie Roy Edwards for his 10th
goal of the season.
