Ga., tn — Unbeaten Maryland and Georgia, whose offensive teams may slow down but seldom stop, run head on Saturday. The wreckags they cause Is pretty sure to be delightful for modern football fans who think defenses are signs of an inferiority complex. This is Dixie's premier game of the week — maybe the month. From It may come a bowl team and you can be fairly sure the winner will be in the top ten team poll next week. Maryland is fourth nationally In the Associated Press poll and B big victory over a top flight club like Georgia is needed to move tho Sugar Bowl champions back around the No. 2 snot where Jim Tatum'.i Terrapins were when the season opened. A couple of ding dong battles with Missouri and Auburn deflated Maryland somewhat. Last week, however, Maryland plastered « good Clemson team. 28-0, to prove that all is well once again. Georgia cut up Vancierbilt and North Carolina State and gave Tulane a whipping. Georgia's forte fs diversification—Zeke Bratkow- skl's brilliant long or short passing and the running of any one of three or four j]i6,;;jm sized backs.

W)—The ex phnation of why Navy has bee., able to tnke a pickup team this year and do better than bst sra«on so far Is simple to coach Ertrtic Erclclatz but nt the same time he renlizes it's hard to fathom. "We just have a more coachable team, a hunch of guys who will do exactly what they are told and have more desire to win." he said today. "I knou- It's hard to explain how it seems we had better Individual players last ypnr ,inri look better this year." continued Erdelntz. "But this bunch Is the kinrt who will do exactly what you tell them—this is a great team job by tfli.vs who are willing to listen and have faith in whit we tell them." Navy has been strong In Its first two games, handcuffing Yale nnd Cornell by big scores. The Middies currently rank as the top defensive crew among the nation's major college football teams.

Worth yesterday, was administered an injection to dissolve possible blood coagulation and his arm encased in fee. McKown's arm was Injured In the same manner in last week's 13-7 TCU victory over Arkansas and Trainer Elmer Brown feared the recurrence might cause a calcium deposit.

Otherwise, Coach Ray George concentrated on defense and sent his offensive linemen against Michigan State defensive lineups in an attempt to overcome the weight advantage held by his Saturday opponents. Rice had a lighter drill on tap today after two days of the heavy work ended yesterday. Coach Jess Neely sought to get his ground game working for the UCLAns before leaving Houston by chartered airliner tomorrow. The Frogs were in top shape physically.
