£age Two - Blytheville (Ark.) Courier News - Thursday, June 8, 19M Ky Forces Capture Hue, Last Buddhist Stronghold By GEORGE MCARTHUR SAIGON' South .Viet Nam ,AP) — Premier Nguyen Cao Ky's troops took over the Buddhist stronghold of Hue today without any resistance from the Buddhist-led mobs and antigovernment troops that have held the northern city in open rebellion since mid-March. The junta's forces seized Hue's radio station and other strongpoints in the .city 400 miles northeast of Saigon a day after the ruling generals came to a political agreement with their Buddhist opponents in Saigon.

After weeks of street disturbances by Buddhist youths, Saigon took an unnaturally calm look. However, some radical Buddhist element* protested the Buddhist-government compromise agreement to add 10 civilians to the ruling directorate of 10 generals. Following up its seizure on May 23 of Da Nang, the other Buddhist stronghold, the junta's troops swept into Hut without a shot after the departure of units of he dissident-riddled 1st Vietnamese division.

The 30- day outlook invisions near normal temperatures and precipitation patterns for the month of June. Four to six inches of rainfall is likely to fall mainly as afternoon and evening thundershowers with the higher amounts likely in the extreme southeast. Water loss through evaporation is high in June and is likely to exceed rainfall by two to four inches. Supplemental irrigation will be necessary in some localities where these facilities are available. The main operation now scheduled for much of the delta is soybean planting. A substantial acreage of soybeans will now be planted in land originally scheduled for cotton but now diverted due to excessively wet w.eather. Rainless weather js expected today and much of tomorrow in the rainless Delta but scattered thundershowers will develop in the afternoon and evening. In the south Delta showers are expected to hold off until Saturday. Increasing shower activity forecast for this afternoon and Friday in northwest Arkansas should sound, a warning note for those who have early cuttings of hay down.
