In the second quarter, halfback Mike Erwin sped 65 yards for a touchdown after recovering a'bouncing forward fumble by-Penn State's Bill Retlig. Rettig was hit about the 17 shortly after crossing the line of scrimmage on the freak play, which covered 86 yards. The Lions made it 10-0 with a 39-yard drive capped by an eight-yard burst through the line by Dick Nye in the third period. Maryland's lone touchdown came in the fourth quarter on a 28-yard pass from Jim Corcoran to wingback Bruce Springer, who caught it between two Penn State defenders at the two and went into the end zone. Early in the quarter the Terrapins lost a touchdown when tailback Ernie Torain fumbled at the goal line after carrying from seven yards out. It was the end to a dismal season for both teams, which had started the year with bright prospects. Penn State ended 5-5, marking the first time in 16 years that Coach Rip Engle has not had a winning season. Maryland's finish was 4-6 and was likely to increase the already broad speculation that it was Coach Turn Nugent's last year with the Terps since corning here from Florida State in 1959. His seven-year record is 36-34. For most of the first half, viewers on NBC saw a split- screen view of the game and preliminaries o! the space shot at Cape Kennedy. The television network cut away from the football game for the Gemini launch alone, returning to the contest in the third period. By GARY SNYDER American P.-css Sports Writer A leader in school as well as on the field. This is Sid Jones, the American Press sports department's choice for the 1965 Outstanding Football Player of Calcasieu Parish. The 196-pound senior quarterback becomes the third Landry player so honored and the 13th recipient of the award. There is no question as to Jones' tremendous value to the 1965 Tiger football team but as equally impressive are the comments passed on by not only his coaches but teachers and players as well. Besides being chosen the outstanding football player of District 4-A this year, Sid has led the Tigers into the semifinals of the state playoff. Not an exceptionally fast runner, Jones makes up the difference with tremendous balance and an exceptional change of pace. He has used these gifts to holch 1491 yards in 213 carries in 12 ball games an impressive seven yards per attempt. The well-built youth has notched 19 touchdowns and one extra point and it was his three touchdowns last Friday night that gave Landry a 19-14 triumph over Oak Grove. Jones is a B student, vice president of the student council, president of the Inter-act Club and a member of the Irritation- Penn StoU , o 0 0 — PS^McNouoMon's Vun"(Sherman kick) PS—Erwin 65 run with recovered tumble (kick failed).

(AP) - Little Charles Durkee kicked a 35- yard field goal in the final two minutes'Saturday to give Oklahoma State a 17-16 victory over traditional rival Oklahoma and end 19-years of football f lustra- tion fop : the Cowboys. Durkee's field goal gave the Cowboys their first victory over the Sooners since 1945 and nullified a brilliant effort by Oklahoma's Ron Shotts. Shells, a 206-pound halfback with flashing speed, gained 163 yards on 28 carries and appeared to have assured the Sooners of continued supremacy in the series when ho booted a 27-yard field goal with 3:56 left in the game. However, the Cowboys came back on the passing of quarterback Glenn Baxter to move within field goal range for Durkee's climactic kick. A leaping catch of a Baxter pass by end Lynn Chadwick set up the three-pointer. Chadwick leaped high between two Sooner defenders to grab the 24-yard aerial, putting the Cowboys on Oklahoma's 26. Three plays later, Durkee hooted the field goal from a slight angle. Durkee, a 155-pound senior, tied tho Big Eight's career field goal record with Ins Ifith career field goal, eight of which came tills season. Prior to Chadwick's spectacular catch and Durkce's ensuing kick, the Sooners had appeared on their way to a 20th straight victory over the Cowboys.

Oklahoma State fullback Walt Garrison gained 76 yards in 20 carries to become only the third Cowboy in history to gain more than 2^000 yards in a career. He wound up with 2,041 for his three varsity seasons, but his 924 total this season fell 13 yards short of the league's rushing crown. Garrison, who won the league's rushing title last year, wound up second to Missouri halfback Charlie Brown, who gained 937 yards this season.

The quiet, reserved Jones is a natural leader and very popular among his teammates. He serves as co-captain, along with Lynn Forct, for the Tiger football team and was last year president of the junior class. Besides being an outstanding offensive player, Jones is one of the better linebackers in the state. Coach Carl Blanchard believes Sid will make some college a good end or slot back. Jones' strongest point is his fine blocking. No matter what gauge one uses to measure football players with, Jones stacks up as one of the best all-around football players to come out of Calcasieu Parish in quite a while. His selection this year came in a tight race over Sulphur tackle Arthur Davis.

The little Jeff Davis Parish school began winning in a big way during the 1959-60 season and has hardly stopped to draw a deep breath since. During this period, the Cardinals have won just about everything in sight — except the local tournament, a prize second only to the state championship in the eyes of Southwest Louisiana teams. Lacassine came close last year, reaching the finals before losing a close 51-4C decision to LaGrange. While the Cardinals have been tough for almost seven seasons, they have been at their best during the tenure of coach Roy (Bubba) Singletary, who carried a fabulous 162-20 record into this weekend's play. Singlelary has guided the Redbirds to virtual permanent lock on the District 11-C title, two straight Southwest Regional titles, the state championship two seasons ago and to the state semifinals last year when they bowed to eventual champion Belmont. This season has been more of the same. The Cards took a 13-1 record into Friday's play losing to Singer by four points and coming back later to avenge the defeat by 23 markers. This year the Redbirds are doing it without an ingredient deemed essential to whining basketball - height. Having lost big all-stater Shannon Cary via graduation, Singletary doesn't have a single sis-footer on the team, but he isn't exactly destitute when it comes to star players. His duo of Danny Sheridan and Dewey Stanton can play for anybody — including a few colleges. Both stand 5-11, are outstanding shooters, solid re- bounders, tenacious defenders and both are veterans of two state tournaments. Stanton was a second-team all - stater last year and is better than ever, averaging 20.8 points a game. Sheridan, the team's quarterback, has really blossomed put this season. He not only is scoring at an 18.9 clip, but averaging 14 rebounds per contest. Other starters are senior Howard Fonlenot (5-10), who has a 9.8 average; junior Henry Fontenot (5-11) with an 8.6 norm; and junior George Daigle (5-9), I Mens All-Weather Zip-out Lined Top Coats 19.98 Value 11 99 Wear it in cool weather as o top coat . . in damp weather as a raincoat . . . just zip-out the Orion Acrylic Pile lining K* . . .

The three key Redbird re serves are junior Gerald Dai-j gle (5-11), senior Ronnie Cormier (D-10) and junior Larry Fruge (5-6). Singletary, as pleasant a young man as you will find in 'the coaching profession, professes honest amazement at his team's showing this year. "They've really come along," he enthused. "I was so afraid we would miss the big boy (Cary), and there are times when we do, but the kids have just been tremendous." Far from being a poorer team, the Cardinals may even be better. "We have a better bench and we're hustling more," Singletary continued. "You know, it wouldn't surprise me if we went a long way before the season is over." Fifteen other teams are fearful that this "long way" just might include a trip to center stage next Saturday night when the trophies are passed out at the conclusion of the touma ment.
