(AP) — The Springfield Indians of the American Hockey League remained virtually on strike today n protest of what they call 'constant harassement" by owner Eddie Shore, a hard- nosed old pro.

', Later, veteran center Brian Kilrea, a spokesman for the players, was suspended formally by Shore for the same reason. "Speaking for the team, we don't want trouble," Kilrea said. "We feel we should be given the chance to win games and perform as a unit without constant harassment from the management." * * * Shore suspended the Indians' top three defensemen in the wake of a 54 loss to Quebec Saturday night. The defeat was Springfield's fourth straight and left the team with a 4-13-2 record since they opened the season with five victories and a tie. The players say they'll remain away until an agreement over frequent suspensions can he reached. Shore said he was not worried about whether the team would return to practice in preparation for a game with Providence Friday. "It's up to them," Shore said. "I'll bring in enough players to man two more clubs if I need to in order to meet our scheduled requirements." * * * Shore said that he has "no gripes with many of the players, but I do have- some against players who are producing.only 65 to 70 per cent of their capacities."
