Four weeks after Commissioner Fay Vincent summoned three Yankee officials to a meeting about their testimony in the Steve Howe hearing, the Players Association

yesterday filed a grievance against Vincent and the 26 major league clubs seeking to "protect the integrity" of future hearings. Michael Weiner, assistant general counsel of

the association, said the union wanted the arbitrator, George Nicolau, to bar the commissioner from repeating his action and to have a notice sent to all major league

employees telling them that testifying truthfully at a grievance hearing cannot result in discipline.

forcing the Houston Astros to make a four-week road trip. The 28-day, 26- game trip is needed to give work crews enough time to prepare the Astrodome for the convention,

"WE had to make friends with the wild creatures in the camp, especially the spiders, mice and rats, because we were outnumbered. " That description was of a camp at the

Tanforan Racetrack near San Francisco, one of several centers in California where Japanese and Japanese-American residents (Issei and Nisei) were held before being

interned in areas remote from the West Coast. The quote comes from "Citizen 13660," a humorous but pointed account of this reaction to

the bombing of Pearl Harbor that was first published in 1946.

It began, Barbara Gerrish recalls, with a Christmastime job sorting letters. It made her feel somehow patriotic. She was serving her country. She liked the flexible hours.

She saw a good career ahead in the United States Postal Service. And, in fact, she won promotions to executive positions. But she says she didn't expect the ordeal that

followed. Not only was Ms. Gerrish propositioned by one superior and drawn into a sexual relationship by a second, as investigators concluded, but she says she was also blocked
