"DETROIT (AP)- Joe Frazier, a king fighting for universal ac ceptance, and Bob Foster, a king who has turned his back on the class he rules, meet to night for the heavyweight cham pionship of the world. The scheduled 15-round fight is set for 10:30 p.m., EST, at Cobo Arena and will follow, as part of a closed-circuit television dou-bleheader, a scheduled 10-rounder betweenheavyweights George Foreman and Boone Kirkman in New York's Madison Square Garden. Although Frazier is the heavyweight champion and unbeaten in 25 pro bouts, he fights in the shadow of Muhammad All, also known as Cassius Clay. By CHARLES R. HORNICK CLEVELAND (AP) A special federal grand Jury was expected to hear from out-of-town witnesses today in the third day of Its Investigation Into affairs of the National Football League.

Except for Tom Fears, who recently was fired as coach of the New Orleans Saints, the jury has spent the first two days hearing testimony from representatives of the Cleveland Browns front office and coaching staff. The investigation Is being conducted under strict secrecy by the Cleveland office of the U.S. Justice Department's Antitrust Division, but it was reported that today's witnesses would include representatives of the St. Louis Cardinals and Bernie Par-rish, a former member of the Browns' defensive backfield. Parrish, now an official of the I Teamsters Union in St." Louis, and Walter Beach another former i Browns defensive back, claimed they were blackballed other NFL teams after be- Besides the history of a light heavyweight champion never winning the heavyweight title, Foster's record also is against him.

Three of his four losses in 45 fights have been to heavyweights. Foster points out that he was not properly conditioned for those fights and that a loss to Zora Folley in 1965 was his last defeat. Foster has scored 35 knockouts in his 41 victories including a four-round triumph over Dick Tiger that brought him the light heavy title in 1968. Scoring for the fight will be under the 10- point must system, with 10 points to the win ner of a round, nine or less to the loser and 10 each for an even round. The three-knockdown rule has been waived and a fighter on the floor at the bell must beat the count which will continue.

AIRMEN SHARE BACK HONORS By HERSCHEL NISSENSON Associated Press Sports Writer The space-program at the Air Force Academy is in full flight thanks to pilot (i.e., quarterback) Bob Parker and navigator (i.e., flanker) Ernie Jennings. The pair of R-footers teamed up for three touchdown passes Saturday to outshine Stanford and its heralded Heisman Trophy candidate Jim Plunkett as the Falcons made off with a 31-14 victory that put them in the Sugar Bowl. Parker, In his first year as a regular, completed 16 of 30 passes for 229 yards Jennings, a 9.6 sprinter, caught 13 for 174 yards. Those performances earned the senior battery joint honors as National College Backs of the Week from The Associated Press. Nebraska TOPS IN FOUR Huskers dominate stats in Big Eight atrlce.

(Sun So, if Frazier beats Foster he 1 is the 5-1 favorite it wffll be another step toward stamping out the shadow of Ali because it will bring closer to realization a Fra-zier-Ali fight. As for Foster, he has said no matter what happens in the Frazier fight he will not defend his light heavyweight championship again. Foster, who was expected to weigh from 185 to 190 pounds for tonight's fight, says he cannot make the light heavyweight limit of 175 any more. It also is possible for a fighter to make more money as a heavyweight contender or trial horse than as the light heavyweight champion.

"I don't see where I can miss once I'm under his arms," says Frazier who usually fights at a height and reach disadvantage In his 25 victories, Frazier has scored 22 knockouts, including the one of Jimmy Ellis when he won the championship in his last fight in February.

The information spread around the campus while the 5-foot-11, 195-pound junior from Johnstown, was replenishing his wardrobe. When he returned to the campus he passed by a group of students in the lounge of the administration building. They told him, but Stetz didn't believe them. "I thought they were kidding," he explained. From, there, he went to his dormitory and again he was told of his honor.

This time he believed. "I never 'dreamed this would happen to me," he beamed, add ing, "without those guys up front clearing the way it wouldn't have happened. They deserve the credit." An ample share of the credit belongs to Stetz, of whom Coach Cal Stoll said before the season, started, Stetz has the ability to come up with the big play."

The young, strong catcher received 22 of the 24 first-place votes and a total of 326 points Billy Williams of the Chicago Cubs was second with the other two first-place votes and 218 points. Bench's slugging teammate, third baseman Tony Perez, finished third in the balloting with 149 points while another member of the Reds, outfielder Pete Rose, also cracked the top 10, finishing seventh with 54 points. Bench Is only the second player in the 40-year history of MVP balloting to win the award at the age of 22. Stan Musial was 22 when he won in 1943, but Mu-sial's birthday falls on Nov. 21 and Bench's on Dec.

7. Musial, however, still retains the honor of having won the MVP earlier in his career than any other player. He was only in his second season when he won the National League award.
