By«DAltRtoMACK UPI Sports Writer .HOUSTON (UPI) - Rick ttauctiel, a big, soft - spoken term boy from Oamp Point, til., has; taken over as the ace of Chicago Cub pitching staff as the Cubs battle their way toward an Eastern Division pennant. ReusdieJ, who came to the majors a year ago this month, shut out the Houston Astros on three hits 3-0 to run his record to 7-4 and lower his earned run average to 1,74, The 6-3 right - hander, whose brown hair lies limp on his forehead like it was combed with the back of his hand, has replaced Ferguson Jenkins as the Cub ace, Jenkins has a 6-4 record and a 3.47 ERA.

Reuschel, 24, had a no-hitter for six innings, the longest he had gone without giving up a htt in his pro career which began in 1970 in Huron, S.D. Doesn't Count Hits "I always know when t haven't given up : any hits," Reuschel said slowly. "I usually stop counting at one." Cesar Gedeno got the first hit, lining a slider to left to open the seventh. With one out, Lee May singled to right to send Cedeno to third. Then Reuschel hung a curve to Doug Rader, but the Astro third baseman /grounded into a double play to end the, inning. Rader said he couldn't have had the ball in a better spot if he had placed it himself. "I was pretty lucky," Reuschel said quietly. "Everything I did wrong came out right." Ken Forsch the Astros starter didn't have much luck although he pitched well for the seventh consecutive time. He had a nc-Mter into the sixth inning When Don Kes-singer grounded a double down the right field line. Hit the Bali Right "I didn't hit the ball good, just in the right spot," Kessinger said. Reuschel sacrificed Kessinger to third and was safo when Forsoh threw too late to catch Kessinger at third. Kessinger scored the first run of the game on Rick Monday's double play grounder. Then Beckert singled up the middle and Billy Williams, who likes to hit in Houston, lined a two-run homer over • the loft certerficld wall to make it 3-0. Forsch left for a pinchhitter after yielding four hits and absorbing his sixth loss to go with six victories. Cedeno got a harmless double in-the ninth.

Howard's Home Run Beats Wood By FRED McMANE Frank Howard isn't the formidable foe he once was but the gentle giant : of the American League still knows how to hurt a guy. Howard, a, parttime. designated hitter with the Detroit Tigers, spoiled Wilbur Wood's bid for victory Tuesday night by hammering his first homer of the year with a man on base in the eighth inning to give the Tigers a 6-5 victory' over Chicago. "I don't hit the-ball'the way 1 used to," Howard said. "Maybe I'm getting older ... I was just trying to keep the ball in play against Wood. He's hard enough to hit as it is." John Hiller received credit for his third victory in five decisions.

UNIFAX Famous Jaw Ali, Norton to Meet Again '- 1NGLEWOOD, Calif. (UPI) The famous jaw is working just fine these days but Muhiaimmad All intends to make Ken Norton pay for imposing that pianfiil period of silence on him. "All I'm thinking of is Norton, Norton, Norton," Ali said as he and Norton signed for a rematch Tuesday. "I remember he's the one who broke my Jaw and put me in the 'hospital. I remember he's the one who shut me up. and you know how I love to talk." The former heavyweight champion met with the 28-year- old Norton to.officially sign for their 12-round rematch ait the Foruin Sept. 10. Ali promised to approach the rematch more seriously than he did their first meeting in- San Diego last March 31. "I've been reading where I'm all washed up," said Ali. "You'll see a different Muhain- mad Ali this time. I'll be damn' serious right from the-beginning." Promoters predicted a record gate of $700,000, $275,000 of which will, go to: Ali. Norton will receive $200,000. Norton said his stunning upset over Ali would make him "more confident" for the rematch. "I'm very positive anyway but I know Ali will be better, so I have to be better. Everything thanks to Muhammad—has changed," he said. "Money is the big thing, of course." Tickets will range in price from $100 down to $12.50 and a live (audience of 18,700 is expected,- to be on hand to see the, self-proclaimed- "No., V* of boxing try to avenge a painful defeat.

"To the best of our knowledge, based on our studies of the fire scene, we have determined that the fire was caused by an extension cord connecting an electrical horse walker 35 feet from barn No. 4 and an electrical receptacle in the barn," said Anderson Township Fire Chief Ed Stagnaro. A horse walker is a device to which four horses at a time can be tied and be forced to walk in a circle. Stagnar said damage to the four barns that were destroyed j and the equipment in them may reach $100,000. The value of the lost horses ranged from $2,000 to $20,000 apiece, he said. One horse, Affluent John, was valued at $20,000. The other horses that perished were identified as Zelma Choice, Reward Road, Hustling Luke, Prince Gunner, Trapp, Grill Girl, Cedar Wink, All Line Miss, Hull's Puck and Hallelujah Chorus. Stagnaro said the electrical cord that started the fire had been draped across ground that contained hay and straw, making it a high fire hazard. Racing was resumed today at the track after the barn area was cleaned up and new stables found for about 80 horses that were rescued from the fire.

National Hockey League President Clarence Campbell told newsmen at the annual NHL meetings Tuesday that the league's, pro-amateur agreement with the CAHA may not be renewed at the end of the month. "The pro-amateur agreement with the CAHA expires on June 30th and the owners are not interested in carrying on unless we get the same right as our competitors," Campbell said. He did not mention the "competitors" by name, but it was obvious he was referring to the World Hockey Association. The long-standing arrangement between the NHL and the CAHA prevents a junior player from being drafted by the NHL before his 20th birthday. The WHA has no such agreement with the CAHA and two weeks ago the Houston Aeros drafted the underage FOR tOW LOW COST AUTO INSURANCE Contact: Tony Lischwe MILLERS MUTUAL INS. 41l BANK Of GALESBUKG BI.DG. 343-1166 or 343-6986 sons of former NHL great Gordie Howe, Mark and Marty, to the chagrin of the National League. Campbell said the league's Board of Governors had discussed the 1974-75 season when the new Kansas City and Washington clubs will make their debut. The NHL will number 18 clubs in 1974 and "we'll be in the same boat as the National Football League was when they went to 26 teams," he said. He added, however, "We'll have to have everything resolved before the All-Star game in January, 1974." Campbell announced also that the Los Angeles Kings will operate the Portland franchise in the Western Hockey League. and Billy Williams hit a two- run homer for the Cubs.
