" Per capita, the Free State has had jnore than Us share of national standouts and it was our idea that something should be done to honor these all-time greats, taking u page from the Hall of Fame books of West Virginia and Texas. Now comes the announcement from Baltimore that a Hall of Fame IS being set up for Maryland; Chairman of the selection Sooners Top Terrapins By 167 Points lii AP Vote By The Associated Press Oklahoma, Maryland and Michigan State again are the Big Three in the balloting to determine the nation's top college football teams proving once more that you nol jnly have to win but you have to win big to stay on top. These three retained the positions they assumed last week in the Associated Press poll of sports writers and broadcasters, but easy- winning Oklahoma stretched its lead while Maryland, the leader two weeks ago, barely clung to second place after coming from behind to beat Clemson 25-12.

Right now, they're so close. together at the top of the National rankings it is strictly a toss-up which should be first and which second. You are living dangerous ly- to mention the Terrapins' qualifications ' in"' Oklahoma territory, and you are nothing but a cad; Suh, to suggest to Maryland Ears that the Sooners are better; Bowl Sponsors Lucky The Terps have played what seems to be a slightly more difficult schedule, while the Sooners, gathering momentum as they go along, have been piling up adding- machine scores.

Orange Bowl sponsors are iickier than last year's Rose Bowl committee, which was prevented by the terms of the Big Ten Pacific Coast C o n f e r e n c e agreement from having the two cading national title disputants, UCLA and Ohio State, slug it out. UCLA had played in the postseason game the year before and ivasn't allowed to repeat. Ohio State played Southern California nstead, and the Trojans proved an indifferent-sort of substitute. Small Fly In Ointment There is only 'one smallish fly in the Orange Bowl ointment.

TURKEY-DAY THOUGHTS—Here are the four Thanksgiving Day high school mentors caughf in a pensive mood last night along with Jim Gaffney, center, at the annual dinner of the Potomac Valley Football 'Officials Association at the Old Homestead Hotel in Burlington. Left to right are Norm Geatz, LaSalle; Bill Hahn, Fort Hill, Gaffney; Ray Hull, Beall of Frostburg, and Roy Lester, Allegany. Gaffney is president of the. officials and may have thoughts of his own drifting back to his fullback days for the Campers in the late '30s. Hahn and Lester will guide their teams in the: annual battle at the local stadium while Geatz and Hull will lock wits- in the clash at Frostburg. Geatz is also probably pondering his game against Romney this Friday evening at the Stadium and how to stop LaSalle's'losing streak. b«2t far aB popM* fern IU foil eochido fenle abwrb* ' th* bentinf your fMt wcwld take.
