The latest weather map shows a lart>e high pressure area covering much of the central and eastern portions of the country' with the center over the lower Ohio Valley. A low pressure wave on the old stationary front over the Gulf of Mexico is feeding moisture northward and northeastward over the southwest portion of the high. This condition is producing the light rain over the southeast portion of Arkansas as well as most of the rain over F.astern Texas, Louisiana and portions of Mississippi. The high is expected to move slowly eastward into the middle Atlantic states by late Saturday. To the west, a new low pressure trough and frontal system extends from southern California northeastward across the Great Basin into a low pressure center just north of Montana in Southern Canada. This system is forecast to move eastward into the plains suites by Saturday and help bring more moisture into the slate.

Saturday is Poppy Day In Hope Sirica's appointees will examine Nixon WASHINGTON (AP) U.S. District Judge John J. Sirica said today he will appoint a team of three doctors to examine Richard M. Nixon and recommend whether the former president will be healthy enough to testify at the Watergate cover-up trial. The judge said he hoped to 1 choose the panel, including a heart specialist and an internal medicine specialist, by next week. Sirica acted ori a formal mo* tion from lawyers for defendant John D. Ehrlichman, who have subpoenaed Nixon. One of the Ehrlichman lawyers, William Frates, said Sirica already has a list of "really great doctors who have all agreed to. do this." On Thursday, Nixon's lawyer, Herbert J. Miller Jr., reported to Sirica that Nixon would be unable to do anything as strenuous as answer questions in a criminal trial for at least two to three months. Asked by Sirica to comment on the plan for an independent medical inquiry into Nixon's health, Associate Special Prosecutor James F. Neal said that while he would not resist, the prosecution does not require the former president's testimony. "We don't even concede that Mr. Nixon is a necessary witness for any of the defendants," Neal said. At one point, it appeared that Nixon would be required to authenticate 26 White House tapes the prosecution plans to play for the jury starting next week. At that time, it was the prosecutors who first recommended that Sirica conduct his own inquiry into Nixon's fitness to testify. Sirica said Thursday he may allow Nixon to be cross-examined at his San Clemente, Calif., estate afer the former president is well enough to answer questions abut the cover-up. A videotape of his testimony would be played for the jury. Sirica said then lie believes he could permit videotaped testimony by Nixon without creating a circus atmosphere. It's possible that images of Nixon and H. K. Haldeman, another defendant, will be flashed on a screen at the courtroom sometime during the trial.
