And for the state as a whole the death toll today had climbed to 16. with 320 cases listed in Arkansas. Mrs. Annabel Fill, North Mississippi County health nurse, said that only one new ca.se had been li&ted here since noon Saturday, She said, however, that sometimes she docs not receive hospital reports for several days so there is no completely accurate record of week-end cases.
