First my usual UUCP advice. Get a copy of O'Reilly's Nutshell Handbook
"Managing UUCP and USENET". It will answer all your UUCP/NEWS questions.

And now for the real answer:
Here is my Devices file (I have two modems on my LINUX system):
HST /dev/cua - 19200 hst
Trailblazer /dev/cub - 19200 tbplus
As you can see, there are 5 fields to each entry:
"type" The name of the device. Also used in your Systems file.
"data-port" The pathname of the serial device for dialout.
"dialer-port" Obsolete. Needed by old modems with external dialers.
"speed" The baud rate of the serial port.
Each pair indicates a Dialer and an argument to that Dialer.
Generally, each of your dialers is listed in your Dialers
file. My entries take no arguments. (My Dialers file
assumes it will be passed the telephone number.)
