The showers are expected to move eastward across the state today.

The moisture added to the low pressure trough enhances the chances for rain.

Art Instructors were then Invited to pursue what* ever mood struck them.

Cypriots exchange captives NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) Greek and Turkish Cypriots exchanged sick and wounded prisoners today in the first major release of captives since the cease-fire a month ago. On the Greek side of Nicosia, shouting and weeping men and women jammed the streets and joyously mobbed four buses carrying the ragged-looking Greek Cypriot prisoners. Most of the freed captives — 129 Turkish Cypriots and 116 Greek Cypriots — were civilians and all appeared in good condition. A few were barefoot and all were dressed in shabby civilian clothes. Only two stretcher cases were seen loaded into an ambulance. The prisoner trade was held in a parking lot of the war- damaged Ledra Palace Hotel, now a U,N. military barracks between the battle lines hi Nicosia. Swiss Red Cross officials handled the exchange and Canadian U.N. troops, heavily armed and wearing flak jackets, guarded the zone. Barbed wire sealed off the parking lot and the Greek Cypriot prisoners' families were kept almost half a mile away, beyond the sandbagged defenses of the capital. Few of the Turkish Cypriot prisoners were from Nicosia and waiting crowds were smaller in the walled Turkish quarter of the city. The exchange was agreed upon by President Glafcos derides, the Greek Cypriot leader, and Vice President Rauf Den- ktash, the Turkish Cypriot leader, as a prelude to the release of 5,693 prisoners, detainees and hostages from the war. derides and Denktash have not yet agreed on a full prisoner release, but teen-agers, students, teachers, doctors and men over 50 are to be freed after all the sick and wounded have been exchanged. Tom Hays to head area council work Tom Ed Hays, a member of the Hope School Board, leader in education and civic affairs, president and trust officer of Hope's First National Bank, has been appointed chairman of Hempstead County for the Arkansas Council on Economic Education. Don Stone, the Council's board chairman and vice president of Simmons First National Bank in Pine Bluff, said, "The Council is fortunate in having Mr. Hays represent the Council in his area. On behalf of the Council, he will be working with schools and other concerned groups. Fund raising is, of course, one of his important assignments and I am sure he will have the full support of business, industry, agriculture, and labor to help reach this year's state-wide goal of $98,500." Hays said, "As our society and its problems become more complex, the need becomes greater for everyone to have a better understanding of Economics. We are more interdependent than ever before; whatever affects one segment of our society usually affects all segments—so it's everyone's job to understand Economics if we are to help preserve our economic system. "Our economic system has been called the Eighth Wonder of the World; the Ninth Wonder, our ignorance about this great system and how it really works. In Arkansas, our Council, through wide public support, has helped to remove some of this lack of knowledge—our problem has been named the nation's best—and today it's up to us to keep this great program on the move," Hays urged. Dr. Bessie B. Moore, Council executive director, said, "We have just completed our most successful year of summer workshops offering graduate credit for teachers and administrators. These participants will be prepared to help young people understand our economic system and how to function in it. This on-going program is a good investment in the future."

Ireland Cypriot , eader reg . gng BELFAST, Northern Ireland (AP) -T-Irish Republican Army teirorists assassinated two Northern Ireland judges in their homes today and a business executive was reported killed by a bomb at his factory. The two judges shot to death in Belfast were Roger "Rory" Conaghan and Martin McBirney, both Roman Catholics accused by the Irish Republican Army of collaborating with the British. The Provisional IRA wing claimed it ordered the killings. Politicians and legal figures condemned the slayings, and courts all over the province were adjourned to honor the two slain judges. In Pomeroy, County Tyrone, west of here, informed sources said a booby trap bomb went off when businessman Michael McCourt entered his office and he was killed. The three deaths raised to 1,063 the official death toll in five years of violence in the province. Police officers said Conaghan, 54, a judge since 1965, was shot by a lone gunman when he answered a knock at his front door at breakfast tune. "He was shot through the heari and died almost in- slantly," one source said. McBirney, 56, was shot by a gunman who burst into the kitchen of his home in nearby Belmont Road as he was cooking breakfast, police said. McBirney was a leading prosecutor before he was appointed a magistrate in 1969. He was a former chairman of the province's Labor party and made an unsuccessful race for the British Parliament 10 years ago. "Both men were warned time and again that they were part of the British war machine and as such were liable to suffer the consequences," said an IRA statement on the two judges. The Northern Ireland' Civil Rights Association, a Catholic- dominated group, declared: "Such killings never advance any political cause one iota, but can only have the effect of opening up yet again the floodgates to sectarian murder and bestiality." Amtrak stops at Walnut Ridge WALNUT RIDGE, Ark. (AP) — John Mills, district service manager for Amtrak, said Sunday night that with a little luck passenger trains would be stopping here indefinitely. "As long as the people are riding, we'll keep the service," Mills said. About 60 Walnut Ridge are residents boarded a train here Sunday night for the first time in the city's history. Previously, all passenger trains stopped at nearby Hoxie. Walnut Ridge currently is an Amtrak test stop. Mills said the Walnut Ridge stop will provide triweekly service and "will not be based solely on revenue because it wouldn't be fair. We don't have a ticket agent here yet." Mills estimated five to 10 passengers per stop "would be doing real good" and likely would mean continuation of the passenger service in Walnut Ridge. Rep. Bill Alexander, D-Ark., also was on the train. Most of the 60 persons who boarded at Walnut Ridge got off at Newport. Two buses at Newport carried the people back to Walnut Ridge. ANKARA, Turkey (AP) Premier Bulent Ecevit announced today he would resign in the next few days because of a split in his coalition cabinet. Political observers believe that Ecevit, a. national hero since Turkey's triumphal invasion of Cyprus, would be asked to form another coalition or a minority government. Conflict between Ecevit and the allied National Salvation party has been brewing for some time. The premier said recently that there were "almost irreconcilable differences" between the Salvation- ists, an orthodox Moslem party, and his own leftist Republican People's party. Two days ago Deputy Premier Necmettin Erbakan, the leader of the Salvationists, said his party would not endorse a visit Ecevit is scheduled to make to Scandinavia. Ecevit's party is the largest in the National Assembly with 185 of the 450 seats. The Salvationists have 49 seats. The coalition was formed eight months ago after elections that failed to give any party a majority in the assembly. All Around Town .8y The Star Staff.
