Blythevllle (Ark.) Courier News - Thursday, June M, im - Page TTirtr Daily Record Wtathcr U. 8. Weitter Bonn Acriculturu service Reiser. Ark. A slow-moving front pushing southward out of the upper plains offers the next hope of substantial shower activity in Arkansas. However, its movement into the area is by no means assured. High pressure continues over the state and only isolated and insignificant thundershowers are expected over the west and south border areas Friday afternoon. Parts of the state are expected to benefit from increasing weekend shower activity but even then the average will be spotty and amounts quite light. Yesterday's highs were in the mid 80s in the northwest hills and in the upper 80s to mid 90s elsewhere. Overnight lows were generally in the 50s in the north hills and 60s elsewhere. The dry weather continues to be a critical factor for agriculture in the state. Reduced yields may be expected from soybeans planted this late. Showers needed to even start this late soybean seeding are not likely to materialize until the weekend and even then coverage will be spotty. It is likely that due to these conditions that a good deal of soybeans will not even be planted due to insufficient topsoil moisture. Weed and insect control practices will continue to occupy most of the far mer's efforts as he hopefully waits for rain.

As the maiden effort, this is he appropriate place for any explanations either of method or of purpose. Perhaps the best way of mak- ng these explanations is to describe how the germ of this column was planted. I have for some time been in the habit of making extended daily conversation with my rlarried, Although Nevertheless Kindly editor (henceforth referred to as H.A.N.K.). This conversation usually takes place in the afternoon and has run, depending on the mood and the material, from metaphysical to moonshine. Alternalingly earnest comic, this talk has enriched many a deadly afternoon for decision. Recent controversial developments, such as the insurance case, have justified his fears, he said. Faubus said grets about the decision not to run, but he added that he thought he could get the 90,000 or so petition signatures which could qualify him as an independent candidate for governor.

He said the state Insurance Department isn't large enough to analyze every rale increase application while it is on file. The Rating Bureau, on which the department sometimes depends, "is made up of people who are in the insurance business or are connected in some way with insurance, who benefit from a rate increase," the governor said. "The main problem in this thing is how to find an impartial body to act as a rating group," he said.
