A large bieh pressure system, centerd over the Atlantic east of Florida, ridges west across the southweatem states, circulating warm, moist southerly winds across Arkansas. The combination of the low over Missouri, the stationary front across Northwest Arkansas and the southerly flow of moist air is producing the shower activity over the state. The low over southern Missouri is drifting to the northeast and dissipating slowly. The stationary front across Northwest Arkansas is expected to remain in the area due to the high over the southeastern states.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Special Watergate prosecutor Leon Jaworski has drawn even tighter the curtain of silence surrounding his deliberations on the case of Richard M. Nixon. While leaving the next move to Jaworski, President Ford has said he will render the final judgment in any prosecution of his predecessor. In the aftermath of Ford's statements at a news conference Wednesday, Jaworski and his staff not only declined comment but even refused to entertain questions. Ford told his news conference he subscribes to the view of those who hold that Nixon should be spared from prosecution in the Watergate case that forced him from office. Despite that, the President said Jaworski "has an obliga- tion to take whatever action he sees fit ... and that should include any and all individuals." But Ford made it clear that he, as President, would make the final judgment in the case. "I am the final authority," he said. Asked if he would consider a pardon for Nixon if legal action were taken against the former president, Ford replied: "Of course, I make the final decision. Until it gets to me, I make no commitment one way or the other. But I do have the right as President of the United States to make that decision." The matter of Nixon's status as a potential defendant in the Watergate case was the opening question in Ford's first news conference as President. —Be a courteous driver.
