Neil Hisoka will be the power driver in the fullback slot and will have Ross Allsop near him in the halfback position. Nath- an Schosp will do the tailback duties. The Grad game is more or less a prestige game and both clubs will go all out in order to carry the victors banner. but the closed session with Kuhn had an air of mystery. The commissioner has refused to discuss the situation, saying only: "Information brought to my attention has raised the question of whether McLain's conduct in recent days have been consistent with the re- quirements of the probationary status." McLain was first suspended from baseball April 1 to July 1 by Kuhn for associating with gamblers and has been on pro- bation since. Then the Tigers suspended him for "up lo 30 days" after McLain poured water over the sportswriters last month. The club later made the sus- pension seven last Kuhn stepped in and ordered that McLain not re. join the team until after lie ap- peared at a hearing. Sources close to the commis- sioner indicated he was not happy about the water bucket incident, and some other Mc- Lain adventures in recent weeks. McLain, after his sus- pension by Detroit, sounded off against general manager Jimmy Campbell, a long-time friend. Summoned along with McLain to today's healing were Camp- bell, manager. Mayo Smith, vice-president Rick Ferrell, Tiger player representative Jim Price, director of player person- nel Walt (Hoot) Evers and team physician Dr. Clarence Living- good.

(AP) Quarterback Joe Kapp's lawyer said Tuesday there have been "absolutely no developments" in Kapp's prolonged contract disagreement with Minnesota Vikings. "I haven't had one word, di- rect or indirect, since the Vi- kings general manager, Jihi Finks, sent his ultimatum tele- gram six or eight weeks said the lawyer, John Elliott Cook.

He was voted Expos' player of the month by the Montreal chapter of the Baseball Writ- ers of America Association in June. When the decision was announced, Bateman received a standing ovation from the Montreal fans.

Bateman was the Expos' No. 3 selection in the National League expansion draft in .Oc- tober, 3968. He signed with Houston Astros in 1962 for a paltry He became the Astros' No. 1 catcher in 1966 and hit .279 with 17 home runs and 70 runs batted in, his best season so far in UK major leagues.
