Pascual, affectionately known as "El Curvo," won 21 games in 1963 to top his 1962 victor}record by one. He received about $37,500 last season and Friday successfully held out for an estimated $45,000 to complete the Minnesota roster. That's pretty good money for the 30-year-old Cuban righthand­ er, who arrived in this countrj- 13 years ago witli a minor league salary of $175 a month. Pascual has won 113 games in the majors and his 1,523 strikeouts is second only to Walter Johnson's 3,508 on the club rolls. The telephone wires also hummed Friday at St. Louis and Kansas City camps.

'We should have had at least two gold medals in the recent Olympics," claims Corcoran, and traces four tactical errors made by Coach Bob Beattie: 1) not putting Heuga in the seeded group for the slalom in- stad of Chuck Ferries. "Jimmy did phenomenal, finishing third from a 24th starting position. never heard of anybody in Olympic history doing that well.

No one in the world can beat Anderl Molterer at his best. I'll bet $10,000 on it. Corcoran believes that Stein Eriksen, the world's most famous skier, hurts himself by con tinuing to race professionally at 36. "It doesn't help his reputa tion to lose," says Tom "and it keeps him away from his main business, running the ski school at Aspen Highlands.

NEW YORK (UPI) — Promoter Harry Markson announced today he hopes to match heavyweight contenders Ernie Terrell and Doug Jones for Madisoii Square Garden, Jlay 15. despite tall Terrell's difficulties in out- pomting Gerhard Zech of Germany Friday night. Terrell of Chicago is ranked third among contenders; Jones of New York, second. Zech, although champion of Germany, is unrated. He made his American debut. "Because of Terrell's unimpressive performance against Zech," explained Markson, "Jones probably will be willing to fight Ernie now. He didn't want to before." . In a battle of the tallest men ever to compete in a nationally televised fight, Terrell, the 4-1 favorite, floored southpaw Zech twice in the first round but couldn't put him away and had to be content with a imanimous 10-roimd decision. Terrell, 24, weighed 206Vi pounds and towered sLx-feet-sLx. Blond Zech, 25, carried 214 pounds on a sLvfoot-five scaffold. Although Zech is a ponderous man who misses almost as many shots as he lands, he impressed the 3,800 Garden fans with his ruggedness, heart, and explosive body blows. In the sixth round it seemed Gerhard might stop big Eraie. Southpaw Zech staggered Terrell with an unexpected straight right to the chin and when Terrell clinched and held, Zech threw him to the canvas. It was not a knockdown. The three ring officials favored Terrell on a rounds basis: 6-3-1, 6-3-1. 5-4-1.
