D-4 Thursday, March U, 1976 HONOLULU ADVERTISER sports at a glance V TRIM'S ARENA Scott going hack to school United Preii International Former Detroit Pistons coach Ray Scott was given a four-year contract yesterday to revive the sagging Eastern Michigan University basketball program. The 37-year-old Scott also will enroll as a student in hopes of getting his bachelor's degree while he tries to restore the Hurons to the same level of respectability they enjoyed before reaching NCAA Division I status. He is two years shy of graduating from college. Scott was fired by the Pistons Jan. 26 despite being the only winning coach the club ever had. "After 15 years in the pros, I think I know the game," Scott said. A native of Philadelphia, Scott dropped out of the University of Portland after his sophomore year. At that time, the NBA didn't have a hardship category for players who had not finished school and he played two years in the Eastern League before the Pistons made him a No. 1 draft choice.

Fans in act Kapp case John Elliott Cook, the attorney who advised Joe Kapp not to sign the National Football League's standard player contract in 1971 because he thought the pact was illegal, testified in the former quarterback's damages trial in San Francis- co Federal Court he was lied to by the New England Patriots and threatened by NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle. Cook, now 77 and an attorney for 54 years, said NFL contracts violate the anti-trust laws "because they imply too much authority in one man (Rozelle), leave a player with no court of appeal except to a man chosen by the owners (Rozelle again) and the commissioner's decisions are for all time." Visas suspended The New York Mets disclosed that visas of two players, utilityman Jesus Alou and pitcher Nino Anulfo, both from the Dominican Republic, have been suspended by the U.S. Labor Board for the duration of the baseball squabble between the owners and the Major League Players Association. The ruling aho could affect Canadian pitcher Ferguson Jenkins of the Boston Red Sox and two Venezuelans infielder Manny Trillo of the Chicago Cubs and 'outfielder Dave Concepcion of the Cincinnati Reds. ; Cazzie sued A book publisher is suing Los Angeles Lakers basketball player A $2.7 million damage suit has been filed against the owners of the defunct Denver Spurts hockey team by more than 400 season ticket holders.

The suit claims "false and fradu-lent" claims were made to season ticket holders.
