The pitching staffs and Two Await Winner Tonight By HAROLD V- RATUFF HOUSTON (AP) - Embattled Doug Jones makes his second attempt at a championship tonight when he pits his speed and strong punching against the Finesse and feared left jab of Ernie Terrell, who holds the World's Boxing Association heavyweight title. Jones tried for the light- heavyweight crown in 1962 and lost to Harold Johnson in 15 rounds. Since then, he has fought the best heavyweights he could find, including Cassius Clay, the generally recognized champion, who was just coming up then. Clay outpointed him, but many claimed the decision went the wrong way. * * * So now, Jones goes against (lie fellow who thinks he should be the recognized champion since he represents the only world's association but realizes that Clay, although suspended •while he was WBA champion, still is regarded as the big man of the game. Each predicts victory, and Jones bravely forecasts that he will knock out the taller and stronger Terrell, whose superior height and reach have made him a 6 to 5 favorite. Terrell only says he will "beat him bad, maybe knock him out." * * * The twe come together in a match scheduled for 15 rounds and expected to start about 11 p.m., EOT. A crowd approaching 10,000 and paying $130,000 is expected to be in Sam Houston Coliseum. Whoever wins, he has two offers of future fights, Irving Ungerman, manager of George Chuvalo, who was beaten by Terrell in November, made a bid of $75,000 to the winner of the Terrell-Jones fight. Red Joins Costello Tonight The National League finally ook the lead in the series last summer by winning the game at Minnesota for an 18-17-1 edge. The Nationals have Won three in a row and seven of the last eight decisions. Starters were selected by the ;ote of players, managers and coaches in each league. Nobody was permitted to vote for a ilayer on his own team. Due to ,he varying numbers of players on the rosters when the player representatives conducted their balloting last week, there were 294 ballots in the National and 287 in the American. * * * The closest contest was between Knoop and Bobby Rich- cardson for second base in the American League. Robinson won in a landslide and both Scott and McAuliffe had comfortable margins. Santo beat Jim Ray Hart of San Francisco 151-125 in the third base competition in the National League, the closest contest. McCovey was a lopsided winner over Bill White of Philadelphia, Cardenas had a solid edge on Maury Wills of Los Angeles and Morgan beat out Jim Lefebvre Oi the Dodgers. 144-94. Homer Is Trav Margin AUSTIN, Tex. (AP)-Arkansas combined Larry Stubing's home run with Hal GUson's four-hit pitching Monday night and defeated Austin 1-0 in a Texas League baseball game.

Al Costello, who represents one half of the world championship tag team, has a new partner tonight. He's not a new wrestler, though. He's the veteran Rowdy Red Roberts, a professional heavyweight who har heard about as many jeers as cheers in his colorful career. * v * Costello and Roberts are lined up to tackle Luke Graham and Chin Lee in the main event st Legion Arena. The other portion of the world tag title belongs to Blytheville promoter Herb Welch. Fans have been beseeching him to team up with Costello here but Herb says: "It's sort of against the rules for a guy to wrestle where he promotes.' * * * In the first mitch at 8:30 handsome Billy Wick.-, and Treacherous Phillips are opponents.

By RON RAPOPORT NEW YORK (AP) - If the United States regains the superiority in track it lost to the Russians in Kiev last year, much of the credit will belong to youngsters.
