No rapid warming trend is uxpccicd for Arkansas through Saturday. The dense cloud cover in the southern Arkansas river valley is responsible for the warmer temperatures in the central portion of the state. A slight increase in cloudiness may result from the southerly wind pattern that will move into Arkansas as the high pressure area moves northeast. The next weather change in Arkansas may be the result of Hurricane Carmen. Carmen is expected to affect the eastern portion of the gulf and some cloudiness and rain may push into the state from the southeast. The overnight low at Fort Smith of 48 degrees set a record for this date. The previous record low was 49 degrees which was set in 1889. Other lows included 43 at Fayetteville, 50 at Harrison, 55 at El Dorado and Texarkana, 60 at Little Rock and 61 at Pine Bluff and Jonesboro. No rainfall was recorded in Arkansas during the 24-hour period which ended at 7 a.m. today. Experiment station report for 24 hours ending 7 a.m. Friday, high 72, low 49.

Air threat reported on South Viet border WASHINGTON (AP) -North Vietnam reportedly has moved MIG jet fighters close to the South Vietnamese border in what U.S. intelligence calls the most active air threat so far. Meanwhile, reports to the Pentagon indicate South Vietnam's air defenses are in poor shape. U.S. officers say one of the basic problems is that the South Vietnamese air force was designed by the United States mostly to bomb and strafe ground targets in support of South Vietnamese troops. Its pilots have virtually no experience in air-to-air combat, while North Vietnam's air force has seen action against U.S. bombers and fighters during the years of American strikes into the North. To make the air defense situation worse, South Vietnamese radar at the key Da Nang base often is not in working order, Pentagon sources say. Some U.S. experts estimate that MIGs could reach to within a few miles of Da Nang without being spotted. At the same time, North Vietnam has extended its surface- to-air missile coverage across a bell of territory its troops control inside South Vietnam below the old demilitarized zone, intelligence men say. This means any South Vietnamese jets that flew up there to contest MIG intrusions would have to worry about being knocked down by ground fire. Reports of MIGs moving into the Dong Hoi base, some 30 miles north of the demilitarized zone, began reaching here nearly a month ago. Since then, other reports have indicated the planes are remaining there. Miss Texas walks off with swimsuit honors ATLANTIC CITYN N.J. (AP) — Shirley Cothran's pink swimsuit has a few holes in it, but the Texas beauty doesn't have any complaints. She wore the two-year-old suit in competition at the Miss America Pageant preliminaries Thursday night, and for her fifth straight appearance in the suit, she ran off with the swimsuit prize. The other occasions were local and state pageants where the 36-23-36 brunette also swept swimsuit laurels. Miss Kentucky, Darlene Compton, garnered Thursday night's talent award by singing "Mira" from the muscial "Carnival." The duo joined Miss Kansas, Karen Diane Smith, and Miss Tennessee, Deborah Humphreys Kincald, who won the swimsuit and talent awards, respectively Wednesday in the preliminary winners' circle. Two more will be chosen tonight, and afterward 10 semifinalists will be picked to compete in Saturday night's finals. Those holes in Miss Texas' swimsuit were just tiny openings in the seam at the waist, but she said jokingly she was afraid "they might run all the way down and the suit would be off." Miss Cothran, 21, received both her bachelor's and master's degrees in education from North Texas State University, where she completed her undergraduate work in three years. She has been living at her state chaperon's home in Fort Worth, but she hails from Denton, Tex., the same town that produced Phyllis George, Miss America 1971. Miss George is a hostess for this year's pageant. The ballad Miss Kentucky sang is about a small town girl who joins a carnival, but longs for "a street that I can know, and places I can go where everybody knows my name." Miss Compton, who was carrying a suitcase and attired in a blue dress and beribboned straw hat, said she chose the number because "it gives me a chance to show off what I can do vocally." The singer is a 25-year-old lifelong resident of Louisville, where she has spent the last 11 months working for television Station WHAS. She works in the station's continuity department, screening commercials, films and tapes to make sure they are the proper length and meet legal requirements. Miss Kentucky finished her course work for a master's degree in music last year at the University of Louisville and expects to take her oral exams in December—unless she is chosen Miss America, She has been living alone since the death of her father last December. Her mother died in 1966 while she was a senior in high school. Hope Thursday's Sale CATTLE: Estimated receipts 760, last week 691. Compared to last week's sale, slaughter cows steady - 1.00 lower.

(AP) — Miss Arkansas' chaperone says the green-eyed beauty definitely is "a favorite around Atlantic City" — the site of the Miss America Pageant. Miss Arkansas, Rhonda Kaye Pope of Hot Springs, sang a medley of "Friends" and "I'll Gel By with a Little Help from My Friends" in the talent division Thursday night, but Miss Kentucky, another vocalist, took the preliminary honors. Tonight, the 5 foot 5, 119- pound Miss Arkansas will compete in the swimsuit division. "She's very calm — having a yreat, great time," Ann Peyton of West Memphis, Miss Arkansas' chaperone, said. "Every time I go in a shop here and they see I'm Miss Arkansas's chaperone, they say, "She's definitely my choice. I want her!" She's very well-liked by the people in Atlantic City," Miss Peyton said. Fulbright reportedly Ford's choice for ambassadorship WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. j. W. Fulbright, D-Ark., is reported to be President Ford's choice for ambassador to Great Britain. However, it was learned Thursday that Fulbright, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has not said definitely whether he wants the post. Fulbright, who last spring lost a re-election bid in the Arkansas Democratic primary, is currently with a seven-member joint congressional delegation visiting the People's Republic of China. Reached by telephone at his hotel in Peking, Fulbright told The Associated Press that the ambassadorship report was "just speculation." He declined to discuss the matter further. The Associated Press was told that Fulbright's pending nomination has been cleared with key Republicans in Congress and given the nod by the British government. If he assumes the London post, Fulbright, 69, would replace Walter H. Annenberg, a former Philadelphia publisher and longtime supporter of ex- President Richard M. Nixon. In another pending diplomatic change, Peter M. Flanigan, a White House assistant for international economic affairs during the Nixon administration, is reported in line for the ambassadorship to Spain. Flanigan's nomination is awaiting approval by the Spanish government. The delay apparently has been caused by the recent illness of Gen. Francisco Franco, who resumed his post as chief of state only last By The Associated Press Gov. Dale Bumpers said Thursday it would be a great honor for Arkansas if Sen. J. W. Fulbright, D-Ark., were appointed to be ambassador to Great Britain. "I don't think anybody would doubt or deny for a minute that Sen. Fulbright is eminently qualified," Bumpers said. Bumpers defeated Fulbright in the Democratic senatorial primary in May. Fulbright, who ends his 30- year Senate career in January, is chairman of the Senate For- eign Relations Committee. The Associated Press was told Thursday that President Ford had offered the post to Fulbright. It was learned that Fulbright, 69, was at first interested in the post but later said he wanted to think about accepting it. British officials approved the Fulbright nomination and "it was cleared with key Republi- cansn" it was learned. Ambassadors must be approved by countries to which they are assigned.
