The commissioner ruled Kapp cannot even work out with the club until he signs a standard player's contract Kapp said he refused to sign such a contract on the advice of his lawyer, John Elliott Cook of San Francisco.

Fake field goal ivins it Eskimos trick Stamps EDMONTON (CP) A fake field goal and pass by quarter- back Don Trull to fullback Bob Houmard for a touchdown gave Edmonton Eskimos a hair-rais- ing 24-21 win over Calgary Stampeders in a Western Foot- ball Conference exhibition foot- ball game Friday night. The touchdown capped a 32- yard drive started when line- backer Jerry Griffin intercepted a Larry Lawrence pass. Harry Theofiledes took the Eskimos to the Calgary six where the drive stalled. Trull came in apparently to hold for a Dave Cutler field goal attempt with left. However, he passed to Houmard who went into the end zone for tlie touch- down. Other Edmonton scorers were Jim Thomas, who counted two on a 43-yard pass from Rusty Clark and the other j on a nine-yard field goal and a 37-yard single. Calgary looked like a shoo-in lo win the game during the first half after Larry Robinson opened the scoring with a 21- yard field goal in the first quarter. In the second, Lawrence ram bled across from the Edmonton six and Larry Robinson con verted. The half ended with Cal gcry leading 15-0 nnd outplaying Edmonton by a wide margin. Eskimos got their first point of the game on a single by Cut- ler early in the third quarter but four minutes later Fred James snared a blocked Fred Dunn punt and rambled 37 yards for a touchdown which Robinson converted, making tin score 17-1 for Calgary. A Trull pass to Thomas on the Calgary goal line gave Edmon- on its first touchdown and Cut- er converted. Jerry .Keeling then marched the Stampeders rom their own 22-yard line to ihe Edmonton 50, but the de- ence stood its ground and Jim Turlong punted for a single joint. Cutler opened the fourth quarter with his field goal and two minutes later Clark threw a screen pass to Thomas who ran 43 yards for the score. Cutler's convert tied the game 18-13. Robinson kicked a field goal into the wind to put Calgai ahead but that was short-h'vec thanks to Griffin's interceptio and the Houmard-Trull heroics Meanwhile, Toronto Argf nauts edged British Columbi Loins 18-17 in a game playec in Toronto. Fullback Jim Evenson got tw touchdrwns for the Lions, a fea matched by rookie running bac Leon McQuay for the Argos.
