Waihburn, President aad Editor says rain moved out of Arkansas shortly before midnight with El Dorado reporting some light drizzle early today. A high pressure area currently covers most of Arkansas. A flat low pressure is in the Gulf of Mexico just to the south of New Orleans. This low is far enough to the east of Arkansas to cut off the moisture to the state. With the low pressure area close to portions of Arkansas., some light rain may occur in southeast Arkansas today. With the remainder of the state under the high pressure area, cloudiness will decrease today and it will warm up slowly. Fair to partly cloudy weather will continue through Friday with warmer temperatures. Highs today should be in the 70s, while lows are forecast for the mid 50s to the low 60s.

(AP) The rock band, Black Oak Arkansas, recently bought a full,page, $150 advertisement in the Yellville Mountain Echo to pay tribute to Marion County Judge Billy Rose. The advertisement had a picture of Rose and said, "Judge Billy Rose is one heck of a fair man." The ad was signed, but not by any political committee. Rose, a Democrat, faces no opposition in November. Black Oak makes its home at a resort area near here. Black Oak manager Butch Stone was with the band on a European tour Wednesday, but a Black Oak spokesman explained the origin of the ad. "Butch was just feeling good one day, and we all like Judge Rose," the spokesman said. The group has worked with Rose on some civic projects. By LOUISE COOK Associated Press Writer Rising civilian unemployment and the fadeout of the antiwar movement have prompted new interest in ROTC programs this fall. Enrollment on some campuses is up 25 per cent from last year. An Associated Press survey showed the trend toward increased interest in.Army, Air Force and Navy training programs spreads across all areas of the country. Part of the motivation is economic: Reserve Officers Training Corps candidates get full scholarships, textbooks, subsistence allowarfbes.'duririg part of their .four years in college and a guaranteed job after graduation. In exchange, they agree to serve for two years on active duty and must participate in certain classroom training and drill programs. The end of the Vietnam war also brought an end to the demonstrations and protests that hurt many ROTC programs, forcing some colleges to abandon them completely and causing others to make them voluntary instead of mandatory. "Things are more relaxed now," said Richard D. Van Antwerp, the Naval ROTC commander at the University of California at Berkeley, a center of some of the bitterest antiwar demonstrations. "We can wear our uniforms on campus without any trouble." The Pentagon does not have over-all figures for the school year that just started, since enrollments are not complete. Figures for past years show a steady decline — from 160,900 students in 1970 to 63,200 last year.

The leftist People's Revolutionary Army last week promised "indiscriminate reprisals" against army officers in retaliation for the death of 16 guerrillas it said were executed while prisoners of the army. More than 75 persons have died since July 1 at the hands of rightist or leftist guerrillas. Meanwhile, leftist Congressman Hector Sandier demanded that the United States Embassy be asked to account for the activities in Argentina of the Central Intelligence Agency. He said he made his demand because of the official disclosures last week of the CIA's operations in Chile against Marxist President Salvador Allende. The Argentine Anti-Communist Alliance, an organization of right-wing terrorists, announced that Sandier is its next target for assassination. The group says it has killed five prominent leftists this month. A furlong is an eignth of a mile. Nowadays it is used for little but horse racing distances. March 10.

Star nhoto by Roger Head Peggy Cobb (Continued from Front Page) sand which we eet from the western part of Alabama. It gets its color from the iron-acid springs found in that area. We have a shade of red sand from Arkansas which we think is colored by the iron pyrite in it," says Mrs. Cobb. "We collect sands from the sides of roads, gravel pits, just anywhere it can be found." The sand art is not limited to just Mrs. Cobb and her husband. "We have three children, a married daughter, a son in college and a daughter who lives at home with us, and they all do sand art. And I know of about two dozen others who do it." "I quit work a few months ago, but I've been working harder at this," Mrs. Cobb says. But work or not its a beautiful art.
