The University of Detroit base-

In the five and two thirds in-

six runs on seven hits against
pitcher Tom Fleszar to hand the
Wolverines the loss. Fleszar
went the whole way for the Michi-
gan team.

Detroit got to Fleszar in the
second inning for four runs to
jump to an early lead they
never relinquished. Left fielder

runs with a double with the bases

Cowboys trade Rentzel,
gain A lworth and Truax

DALLAS (P) - The Dallas
Cowboys of the National Foot-
ball League traded troubled
flanker back Lance Rentzel to
the Los Angeles Rams yesterday
in a whirlwind series of wheel-
ing and dealing. that also saw
tight end Pettis Norman and
tackle Tony Liscio and Ron
East leave the Cowboys.
Rentzel was traded to the
Rams for tight end Billy Truax
and wide receiver Wendell
Norman, Liscio and East went
to San Diego for wide receiver
Lance Alworth.
Rentzel, who received a five
year probation sentence last
month on a guilty plea of expos-
ing himself to a 10-year-old girl,
missed the last five games of
the regular season in 1970 and
the NFL playoffs because of the
Cowboy Coach Tom Landry
said "We4know we are giving up
one of the top flankers in the
league Rentzel, but I thought
he would be better off in anoth-
er city where he had the same
opportunity regularly,
"We found this in Los Angeles
and it was one of the teams
Lance had said he wanted to be

traded to if he were traded."
Landry said Alworth's record
"speaks for itself. You zsan look
at all the receivers in the 1960s
and you have to rate Alworth the
top receiver for that period. We
feel he has several outstanding
years in him."
Coach Tommy Prothro of the
Rams said: "I'm tremendously
pleased with the trade, despite
having to give up Billy Truax,,
since I believe Rentzel is an out-
standing wide receiver. This is
a position in which we needed
help the most."
"This was a difficult decision
made in the best interests of the
team," said Sid Gillman, head
coach and executive vice presi-
dent of the Chargers.
In San Diego, he said the
straight p l a y e r trade, an-
nounced jointly with Cowboys'
President Tex Schramm in Dal-
las, will improve the San Diego
team "in areas where we need
it most."
Referring to the trade, Gill-
man said "It was made for only
one reason-to help the- Charg-
ers win. We obtained three ex-
cellent players in positions in
which we need help. Our club
will be stronger for the trade,"

The loss brought the Wolver-
ines record to 21-12. with four
games left to play.
In Tuesday's action, f o u r
Michigan errors in the first four
innings of play with Western
Michigan cost the Wolverines
three unearned runs and a win
in extra-inning play.
With the score knotted at 3-3
in the ninth, Leon Roberts un-
loaded a single and stole second
base. Advancing to third on a
wild throw, the Wolverine center-
fielder scored on second base-
man Jim Kocolowski's single to
give Michigan the lead.
However, the Western team
tied the score in the home half
of the inning to send the clash
into extra innings.
With two outs in the bottom of
the tenth, Bronco centerfielder
Mark Orr singled and then stole
second. After moving to third on
a wild pitch, Orr scored the de-
ciding run on a single by teain
mate and shortstop Greg Geyer.
The Wolverines now face two
crucial conference doubleheaders
at Illinois and Purdue this week-
end before closing out their sea-
