A single-engine airplane that had just aborted a landing at the College Park Airport crashed yesterday afternoon into a fire training building on the University of Maryland campus, killing the four people aboard.Investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board were trying to determine how the four-seat Beechcraft plane suddenly plunged nose first onto the roof of the Maryland Fire and Rescue Institute Training Academy, about 400 yards from the runway."According to eyewitnesses, the plane didn't have enough altitude, and it veered off to the left," said Pete Piringer, a spokesman for the Prince George's County Fire Department.

Michael Leotta had a point to make when he recommended that the Maryland Student Legislature pass a resolution to change the name of the U.S. emblem, the bald eagle, to the "colorlessly headed eagle."His point involved more than the negative connotation baldness has in the United States or that "feelings of humiliation, insecurity, inferiority and discrimination should not be associated with our national emblem.""I proposed this legislation to make us think about what we're doing," said the freshman from the University of Maryland at College Park.

The University of Maryland at College Park, A History By George H. Callcott. Noble House, 177 pages, $24.95. Why, outsiders sometimes ask, is Maryland's main public university off at one edge? Wouldn't a central site, as in other states, have made more sense? The archives may be empty as to this placement scheming and dealing (The saying always went that Baltimore belonged to the Johns Hopkins University); but Professor Callcott, now retired from the U. of M. history department, does show how the small, obscure Maryland State Agriculture College grew and grew, becoming the campus and 30,000-plus students now called University of Maryland at College Park.

Higher education has priority needsThe Sun's Oct. 13 editorial, ''Making higher education a priority,'' certainly caught my attention.I enthusiastically applaud your call for increased state support of higher education and for higher education's greater link to the state's future economic growth, especially in the high-technology sector.As we know all too well, the state of Maryland does not have a history of fully supporting higher education. Unfortunately, decades ago, when other states were building high-quality public systems of higher education, an advisory commission in the state rejected this approach for Maryland.

Maryland was one of only six states that suffered a net job loss last year, according to a new Labor Department report, but strong employment growth in the last half of the year pointed to a much stronger 1994.While job creation picked up in much of the nation last year, Maryland companies cut their payrolls by about 1,000 jobs, or 0.05 percent, according to data released by the U.S. Labor Department. Hardest-hit were the construction and manufacturing industries.But economists said the small statewide job loss belied a clear trend of job gains toward the end of the year.
