He added: "I don't think this is a claim to which an Ameri- can court can turn a deaf ear." Walter Kennedy, commis- sioner of the National Basket- ball Association, said his sport did not have a play-out-the-op- lion clause, as in pro football. He said the NBA did allow a player under contract for one year to play a second year with- out a contract while negotia- tions are going on. He said some players had "jumped con- tracts" and signed with the rival American Baeketball Asso- ciation. ONE WAS DIFFERENT Kennedy said there had been only one contract, in his recol- lection, in which a player was given the right of veto power over a trade. That was Oscar Robertson's contract with Cin- cinnati Royals. The structure of professional hockey was reviewed by Clar- ence Campbell, president of the National Hockey League, and Alan Eagleson, executive direc- tor of the NHL Players' Asso- ciation. Eagleson said a hockey play- er's contract was "for1 life" but some super stars had special no-trade or no-cut contracts. Campbell said any such special clauses were not recognized by the lea'gue and- were private agreements between player and wner. Campbell said contact dis- putes between players and own- ers always had gone to him for a final decision in the past but a new procedure had been worked out this year to set up arbitra- tion. He said no cases had gone to arbitration yet. The NHL president said a player control arrangement was essential to hockey because "if it were not for that assurance no one would spend that kind of money." Campbell said each NHL club spends about on'player development each year and the league as an entity backed ama- teur hockey with an subsidy. He said a universal amateur draft had been estab- lished in which between 75 and 85 players are selected each year. CAPP INE GOT ME COUBTS ABOUT TUB CAPP --WH4T THINK? LET'S TRY" IT ON VER M3THER.9HE ISN'T FEEDS' TOO Expos Drop Back Into Cellar Dodgers Unleash Power Los Angeles Dodgers, running up their largest run total since moving to California from Brooklyn 12 years ago, demo- lished San Francisco Giants 19-3 in one of seven National League contests Tuesday. All but first baseman Wes Parker, hitless in four trips, and outfielder Len Gabrielson, a late-inning replacement, partici- pated hi the Dodgers' 20-Mt bar- rage in front of San Fran- cisco fans. Elsewhere, Philadelphia Phil- lies scored three times in the top half of the ninth inning at Montreal to down the Expos 3-2, San Diego Padres twice upset the West Division-leading Cin- cinnati Reds, 8-1 and 4-1, New York Mets trimmed St. Louis Cardinals 5-1, Atlanta Braves edged Houston Astros 5-3 and, in the only day game, Chicago Cubs dumped Pittsburgh Pir- ates 6-3. Los Angeles winning pitcher Claude Osteen set the pace for the Dodgers with two singles, a double and a home run. Bill Gfrabarkewitz connected for a single, double and triple and catcher Tom Haller, a for- mer Giant, hit a double and throe singles. Osteen scattered 12 hits as new San Francisco manager Charlie Fox employed 18 play- ers. At San Diego, the Padres used extras-base hits to batter Cincin- nati. In the opener, Nate Colbert drove in four runs with his 15th and 16th homers of the season, then was forced out of action to the first, inning of the second game. The San Diego slugger was struck on the left cheek by a pitch thrown by Cincinnati loser Pedro Borbon, who had just given up a three-run homer to Clarence Gaston. Colbert was taken to hospital, where x-ray results proved ne- gative. Ollie Brown hit a three- run homer for the winners in the first game. Meanwhile Joe Grzenda, in a career dating back to 1955 has made it to the majors for four games with Detroit in 1961, 20 with Kansas City in 1964 and 21 in 1966 and 11 with the New York Mets in 1967 before spend- ing a full season with the Min- nesota Twins a year ago. He was shipping off to the Washington Sentaors shortly be- fore the start of the 1970 cam- paign. Sail, it was a surprise when he stowed up on the mound in Boston's Fenway Park Tuesday night as a starting pitcher, no less. The 32-year-old left-hander limited line bard hitting Red Sox to one hit for eight innings and the Senators earned a 7-5 triumph. "I didn't know for sure I was going to pitch until said Grzenda, who got to start when Casey Cox showed up sick. "I was happy. I always wanted to start in the big leagues. And the surprising thing was that I wasn't nervous. I thought I would be. Cox was well enough to get last two outs after Grzeada surrendered a single to Carl Yastrzemski and a homer to Tony Conigliaro with one out in the ninth. Elsewhere In the American League, Minnesota Twins beat Milwaukee Brewers 6-2, Califor- nia Angels topped Oakland A's 4-2, Baltimore Orioles trounced Cleveland Indians 7-0, Detroit Tigers blanked the New York Yankees 3-0 and the Chicago White Sox defeated Kansas City Royals 3-1.
