Pag* Twelve - BlytHerllte (Arii.) Courier Wew» - Monilay, June g, MM Daily Record Weather I). S. Weather Bureaa Agricultural service Reiser, Ark. •Monotony of dry weather continues in Arkansas. The short- range forecast does not mention showers, and even the five- day outlook delays the most likely shower period until next weekend. A high pressure is over Michigan and a broad flat area of high pressure covers the southeast states and a mechanism for touching off showers is ab- tent. Yesterday was the warmest day of the year in many places with 100 degrees or higher being recorded at Little Rock, Calico Rock, Judsonia and Morrilton. Overnight lows were in the 60's and low 70's. The five day outlook (to 6 a.m. next Sunday) calls for temperatures to average two to five degrees above normal. Normal highs 89-94; lows: 67-73. Rainfall will be of little consequence and will average one-tenth of an inch or less with a few amounts nearing a balf inch. Thundershowers are most likely near the weekend. Increasing moisture stress is being noted in all crops and growth has slowed nearly to a standstill in much of the central and south delta. Irrigation systems will get a heavy workout this week. The Southeast Branch Experiment Station at Rohwer is in its S6th consecutive day without measurable rainfall and this situation is common through much of the south and east portions of Arkansas.

Immediately after letting loose their heavy bombardment, pilots of the low-level jets radioed they saw huge explosions accompanied by thick black smoke. One flier banked sharply to avoid a glowing orange fireball at 3,000. "An entire hill erupted," another pilot said. While the air blows were being dealt against the North, U.S. pilots killed an estimated 70 Communists, destroyed 460 'buildings and hit 36 river sampans in -South Viet Nam, a spokesman said. An American spokesman reported light casualties over-all in the fighting 13 miles from Hue. However, one Marine company took heavy losses from a Communist mortar barrage Saturday when several Marine battalions began Operation Jay. The Marines were backed up by units of the Vietnamese 1st Division, some of whose men sided with Buddhist rebels in Hue in the weeks of political turmoil in the northern city. In another move to neutralize dissident Buddhists, government troops seized radio equipment in a pagoda where the struggle movement had made antigovernment, anti-American propaganda broadcasts. Though his ranks are divided following Premier Nguyen Cao Ky's firm stand against the militants, the nominal head of the Buddhist Institute voiced a mild threat to boycott the Sept. 11 election for a constituent assembly to draft a constitution. "It is possible we will boycott the elections," the relatively moderate monk Thich Tarn Chau told newsmen. He said a final decision will be made by the institute's council. The institute is the political The party committee studying arm of the United Buddhist Church which claims to speak for two million persons. Thich Tri Quang, Ky's leading Buddhist opponent, entered the 20th day of a sugared-llquld diet 1 at the Saigon clinic where the government placed him alter his arrest in Hue last week. Doctors said the 42-year-old monk was in a state of near exhaustion and could lapse into a coma at any time. He has vowed to continue the fast until the government resigns. The vas U.S. military building program continued to be jeopardized by a strike for higher pay by 13,000 Vietnamese construction workers in the Saigon area, now in the seventh day. They are employes of the American construction combine that handles the Pentagon's projects throughout South Viet Nam. The work affected by the strike includes new runways at Saigon's overtaxed Tan Son Nhut airport, expanded port facilities and construction of a new U.S. Embassy. Marine officers told Associated Press correspondent Bob Gassaway with Operation Jay that the air strikes and cannon fire had forced the Communists into caves and now the Marines would have to dig them out. The U.S. Marine Corps told of the dramatic escape of two young Leathernecks after a month and a half of Viet Cong captivity. Sgt. James S. Dodson, 23, of York, Pa., and Lance Cpl. Walter W. Eckes, 20, of New York City, met to a Viet Cong mountain camp shortly after their separate captures by stray guerrilla bands in the Da Nang area early last month. Fed a daily dose of lectures on communism, Dodson and Eckes began plotting to escape. They got their chance one night while they were eating rice with three guards who had carelessly propped their carbines against a tree. Dodson jumped up, grabbed a gun, cocked it and wheeled around at the astonished guards. "They looked at me, I looked at them," he said. "Then they ran." For four grueling days, Dodson and Eckes marched through snake-infested elephant grass, along mountain trails and across muddy itreams and riv- en. •ally, they saw that they thought was the searchlight of Da Nang air base and the lights of the city. The next morning they stumbled into a government outpost a short distance awav from the Marine base at An Hoa. "Man, it felt good!" Dodson said. FRYERS Cut-up Tray-Pak CAKE MIXES Kroger . . .

Some of the marchers chanted "black power" — the theme emphasized by the more militant civil rights forces partici- paing in he crusade. As Sunday's column passed through a white residential section, a white man in the march shouted out to spectators, "Hello friends." 'Friends, hell," a white woman on a sidewalk yelled back. At the Capitol, King, who heads the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, said the rally "brings to a majestic close our long and turbulent trip through the state of Mississippi. It is the greatest demonstration for freedom in the state of Mississippi to date." He hailed Meredith, saying, "It was his bravery, his majestic scorn of crippling fear that originated this march." Among the whites joining the final day's procession were AFL-CIO Vice President Walter P. Reuther and Justice Michael Musmanno of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. There were no serious incidents reported along the eight- mile route. Some 2,000 whites clustered near the Capitol, impassively watching the rally. They included 50 Ku Klux Klansmen wearing green pants and shirts, with white ties and whit* belt*. "We just came down here to make sure these niggers don't cause any trouble," said a leader, who declined to give his name. "If they don't, we won't." The man said his Klan group was the Black Knights of the Green Forest. American flags fluttered in the hands of many marchers. At Tougaloo, Willie Ricks, a militant leader of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, went down the line of marchers and took American flags from those who would surrender them. The Rev. John Morris, an Atlanta, Ga., Episcopalian priest, tried to stop Ricks. Then one of King's aides took the flags from Ricks, handing them back to the marchers. "Those are our flags," he said loudly. It was Ricks who repeatedly called during the 22-day trek for a black power crusade and hreatened that white blood would be spilled if any more Negroes were killed. Although Meredith, King and the other speakers emphasized unity, the squabbles and dissension that marked the march continued on the final day. The leaders voted to exclude the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and particularly its Mississippi leader, Charles Kvers, from participating in the rally on the grounds that Evers and the NAACP did not lend sufficient support to the march. Evers called the black power theme "just a figure of speech." "It scares hell out of the white people. That's what it's for." "But Negroes, who comprise only 20 per cent of the population in this country, are foolish to talk about black power," he told an interviewer. 'We have got to have power within the power." John Doar, assistant U.S. at- torney general and head of the Justice Dedpartment's Civil Rights Division, stood in the street near the Capitol listening to the speeches. Doar, who has spent much of the past decade roaming through the South in an effort to solve racial problems, accompanied the marchers along most of the route from Memphis to Jackson as an observer.

Remember Pay Your Paper Boy $1.5 Million Grant Offered HendrixCollege CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - Hendrix College has been offered a $1.5 million challenge grant from the Ford Foundation, but must raise $3.75 million by July 31, 1969 to get the grant. The foundation said there would be no restriction on the spending of the funds if Hendrix meets the challenge. Dr. Marshall Steel, Hendrix president, said the money would be used for construction primarily. Bishop Paul V. Martin of the Arkansas Area of the Methodist Church said the two annual conferences in the state have agreed to raise $1.2 million. Hendrix is a Methodist school.
