SIXTEEN EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD., TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1955 Dial PA-2-4600 for a WANT AP Another Cumberland high school gridder has been added to the list of college football captains with the announcement of Don Stine's election as top general of the Washington and Lee Generals. Don is a senior at the -Virginia university which has re- iumed the sport following a layoff period to de-emphasize. The former Fort Hill star is a senior, having been given a football scholarship before the decision was made to go "little time." Stine, a fullback, is Washington and Lee's leading ground gainer and is also a captain hi ROTC. Don played the same position at Fort Hill where he gained 1951 All- City honors, along with teammate Dickie Beard who is also captain of the Virginia Tech football team. Stine was given honorable mention on the Jaycees' 1951 'All- Maryland and honored on their third All-Counties team. Stine joins other Fort Hill players who have gone on to captain collegiate teams. Others were Fred Davis and John AI- derton at Maryland and Eddie Siebert at Shepherd College. 'A Tribute To Cliff •• That was a nice gesture on the part of the Frostburg Church Basketball League to change .its name to the Fearer Memorial circuit out of respect for Cliff Fearer. Cliff, who died in that tragic highway mishap last month in LaVale,.along with four other persons, was the guiding hand'behind the league. He worked long and hard in an effort to organize the loop but worked longer and harder in keeping the wheel moving. Norm Gerdeman, who played on the same football team with Cliff at Allegany High in 1934, read about the accident in Reno, ,Nev., where he now resides, and pays a nice tribute to him in a letter to this department. "He was a fine fellow, never out of line, and, as you stated in your column, was a hard worker," states Gerdeman. "He was like that in school; never an outstanding player, but not too bad, either. He worked harder than most of us on that 1934 team. "I knew ot the good work that Cliff was doing in Frostburg and he really deserved a lot of. credit. That's the trouble with the human race; • people find out too late what a person Is trying to do." Sports Keg Residue A seven-year-old Cumberland youngster received a top thrill in hi.« young life two Saturdays ago when he made a trip to Washington with his dad to see the vaunted Boiling Air Field football team in action. . .

Terps Retain Lead In AP Poll By Scant Margui Sooners Lag By Only 34 Total Points Michigan Still Third While Notre Dame Hops To Sixth Place By The Associated Press Maryland, Oklahoma and Mich- gan, continuing a race that's knot- ed up like a coach's nerves on the eve of a big game, still 'are 1-2-3 n the national college football rat- ngs.

Maryland first moved to' the top iis year in the second regular- eason poll after beating UCLA 7-0.

He attended Cornell University. Cook gained prominence as a Eist sacker with many teams of the tri-state area, chiefly Hyndman Clubs. He was a smooth fielder left-handed thrower and was re garded as a good hitter. "Pete" probably stayed longer in basebal than any other sandiotter; playing approximately 25 years before quit ting in the late 1940s. He also man aged several teams.
