A member of the Maryland Board of Contract Appeals whose impartiality was challenged by Baltimore attorney Peter G. Angelos is resigning and will not hear Angelos' $1 billion claim for handling the state's tobacco lawsuit. Anne T. MacKinnon, who has served on the board since June, will step down effective Dec. 25, said board member Robert B. Harrison III. He gave no reason for the resignation. MacKinnon could not be reached for comment. The revelation came at a board hearing on Angelos' demand that MacKinnon and Chairman Randolph B. Rosencrantz recuse themselves from his fee dispute because of ties to Gov. Parris N. Glendening.

At a prayer breakfast in Baghdad, Iraq, last week, Col. William Wood tearfully promised soldiers in the California National Guard battalion that the killing and wounding of soldiers in his battered unit would come to an end. No more soldier photographs, he pledged, would be added under his watch to the already crowded wall at Forward Operating Base Falcon where the battalion honors its dead. Less than 48 hours later, Wood, 44, died in a roadside bomb explosion when he came to the aid of a fallen comrade.

Parris N. Glendening, legislative leaders and the party chairman, Peter Krauser.But Glendening and Krauser moved quickly yesterday to say that MacKinnon's departure from the party post had nothing to do with testimony before a committee in which she opposed a bill the governor supports.

The police always say that family fights are the most apt to turn ugly. Nothing is better proof of that than the recent split in the feminist movement over whether it is possible to have both sex and sexual equality at the same time. On one side are the forces of Catharine MacKinnon and Andrea Dworkin, claiming that virtually all sexually explicit materials are inherently degrading to women. On the other side stand Nadine Strossen and the American Civil Liberties Union, claiming that not only can women have both cakes and ale, but that to deny society access to pornography is to deny it access to its deepest wellsprings of self-expression.

Curry has withdrawn his formal offer to help the Washington Redskins build a stadium near Landover, a serious setback for the project but one that the team insists does not end the matter.Mr. Curry sent team owner Jack Kent Cooke a letter Tuesday saying that the county's proposal was "nullified" by Mr. Cooke's rejection last week of a proposed letter of intent. In his letter, Mr. Curry invited Mr. Cooke to send a counterproposal "advancing a palatable way to facilitate" the project.

Washington.--Catherine MacKinnon, author of ''Only Words'' and campaigner in the culture wars on campuses, is more than just another full-time victim, ubiquitous and loud in proclaiming that she has been silenced. This professor at the University of Michigan law school also is a leader of the most radical assault on free speech in American history.McCarthyism, the ''red scare'' after the First World War, and the Alien and Sedition Acts were the products of political factions with familiar kinds of interests and passions.

I just want to write. Ultimately, I just want my efforts to stand or fall on their own merits. A recent story in The Hollywood Reporter entitled "TV executives admit in taped interviews that Hollywood pushes a liberal agenda," reminded me all over again how difficult it has been to meet that simple and fair standard. I am in fact a former Republican who now labels myself an independent conservative. Beyond that, I've been a fairly successful author and novelist and have sold tens of thousands of books.
