Rainfall reports for the 24- hour period ended at 7 a.m. include .05 at El Dorado. The Weather Service said a weak tropical depression moved into south Texas Sunday night and was moving northeast. In addition, a cold front was drifting slowly southeast and was expected to approach extreme northwest Arkansas by sunset Tuesday. The approach of the cold front and the northeast movement of the tropical depression account for the increased shower probability. The Weather Service said the increasing cloudiness produced by the weather pattern would bring some relief from the warm afternoon readings. Highs today and Tuesday should be near 90. Ix)ws tonight are expected in the low 70s. Overnight lows include Pine Bluff 68, El Dorado 72, Texarkana 72, Fayetteville 65, Harrison 72, Jonesboro 72, Memphis 74, Little Rock 71 and Fort Smith 71. The extended outlook calls for a chance of showers Wednesday through Friday. Temperatures should be near seasonal normals during the period.

(Photograph by American Hereford Association) Church laws criticized by woman priest MORRISTOWN, N.J. (AP) "The laws of the Episcopal church are inconsistent with the gospel of Jesus Christ," said Nancy C.H. Witteg in her first sermon since her controversial ordination as a priest. Mrs. Witteg, 28, one of 11 women whose ordinations in a Philadelphia slum church on July 29 were invalidated by Episcopalian hierarchy, spoke from the pulpit at St. Peter's Episcopal Church here on Sunday. "I was ordained as a priest in the church of God by a great bishop of the church," said Mrs. Witteg. The denomination's House of Bishops invalidated the ordinad tions at an Aug. 15 emergency session in Chicago. Her husband, the Rev. Richard Witteg of Mt. Horeb Methodist Church in Warren Township, watched from the altar as Mrs. Witteg told 150 parishioners the House of Bishops' resolution was "the last bastion of male arrogance." After the service, however, she said that although she believes she is a priest she will act as a deacon for now and ' not perform the priestly duties of consecrating the Holy Eucharist and giving absolution and blessings. them back sometime this Fall. The Spirit of the Lord really moved and blessed during the concert. I even got to sing with them which really thrilled me." Charles E.
