Light rain was wide spread over Arkansas Thursday night. However, it was light with the amounts mostly less than one- tenth of an inch. Most of the measureable amounts were in the south part with Texarkana and El Dorado reporting .03 inches and Little Rock reporting .02. Other stations with rainfall included .10 at Pine Bluff and .04 at Jonesboro. Overnight lows included 57 at Fayetteville and Harrison; 58 at Fort Smith; 61 at Jonesboro; 62 at Little Rock, El Dorado and Texarkana; and 64 at Pine Bluff. A part of the low pressure in the Gulf broke off from the main low and moved northward into the southeast part of Arkansas Thursday night and is now covering Eastern Arkansas. The low brought with it some moisture and caused the light rain and drizzle during the night. Most of the low pressure area continues to move on to the east and is now in the eastern part of the gulf. The high pressure also is moving on to the east slowly which allows for another system — a cold front to the northwest — to move towards Arkansas. Experiment station report for 24 hours ending 7 a.m. Friday, high 68, low 58.

"Woman V," an oil and charcoal painting, was purchased this week by the Australian National Art Gallery in Canberra, Robert Gray, a Chicago art dealer, confirmed on Thursday. The price reportedly was $850,000, about $300,000 more than the previous record sale of a Pablo Picasso painting before his death- Gray, however, declined to confirm the sale price. "Values of paintings have been affected by worldwide inflation," Gray said.

Judge G. Thomas Eisele of U.S. District Court at Little Rock ruled recently that the board must set constitutional standards by today or reinstate the students who were suspended Sept. 13 after fighting broke out at North Little Rock Northeast High School. Supt. George E. Miller said the procedures would be filed today in U.S. District Court. Eisele's order was in response to a suit filed Sept. 19 by John W. Walker, attorney for seven black students suspended after the fighting. The suit sought reinstatement of the students and dismissal of criminal charges against Use seven students. On that same day, Gary P. Barket, attorney for one of the white students suspended and charged criminally, filed suit seeking reinstatement of his client. Fourteen students were suspended after the fighting and charged with disturbing the peace and assault and battery in warrants obtained by school officials. One major policy change is that school officials who suspend students first must hear the students' side. Another is that any suspension must be for a definite duration. chosen 1974 Farm Family The T.Ji Goodwin family, whose farm is two miles south of Bodcaw, b/»s been named Farm Family of the Year in Nevada County for 1974 and was awarded the Nevada County plaque by the Bank of Prescott at the Kiwanis club meeting last week in Prescott.
