LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The Arkansas Crop and Livestock Reporting Service said Monday that the state soybean crop is expected to be below the 1973 level. The agency forecast increased 1974 production of cotton, rice and sorghum grain. The soybean crop was forecast at 90.3 million bushels, a 22 per cent decline from 1973. Cool, rainy weather helped late bean varieties, but the crop needs sunny weather and a late frost. The agency estimated that the 1974 cotton production would be 1.3 million bales, 25 per cent above the 1973 level. The agency estimated that the crop would yield 471 pounds per acre, down 6 per cent from last year. Cool weather and considerable rain was detrimental to crop development, the report said. The state rice crop is forecast at. 134,560,000 hundred. weight, 36 per cent above the 1973 level. Projected yield per acre is 4,800 hundredweight, up about 1 per cent from last year. Early yields were reported very good. The production of sorghum grain is forecast at 6,720,000 bushels. That is 15,000 bushels above the 1973 level. The yield is expected to be 48 bushels per acre compared with 45 bushels last year. Heavy Particle The negatively charged electron and the positively charged proton are particles of the atom.

"The fire started from the side where they have their cartons and load their eggs out. There were a lot of empty egg cartons...and you know how those things will burn." Faught said a high wind coming from the east also helped spread the fire. Jackson said a receiving dock at the plant was not damaged although the main production room and one of the warehouse areas were destroyed as was a cooler. Another cooler was damaged. South China Sea.'""' ' The Philippine Weather Bureau in Manila reported a tropical depression had intensified into a storm and was headed north toward Mindanao, the .Philippines' largest southern island. "The search is continuing and will continue through the night" for the plane, an Air Force spokesman said today. The missing WC130 Hercules, based at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, disappeared late Saturday while tracking Typhoon Bess. It was last reported about 400 miles north of Clark Air Base in the Philippines. Five Air Force planes and a U.S. Navy support vessel, the White Plains, had searched through the day today but reported no sign of the Hercules or its crew, the spokesman said.
