Night time minimum temperatures, although near normal, are on the cool side for rapidly maturing the upper crop of cotton bolls; But daytime temperatures, generally in the 80's will help to start these on the way to maturity; this week. Shower probabilities are low today, and even lower for tomorrow. If insecticide applications are necessary, it would appear a reasonable risk today with even less chance for washing of f in showers tomorrow. The five-day forecast through 6 a.m. Sunday calls for temperatures to average around normal with only minor day to day changes.. Normal highs: 87-91; normal lows:. '62-69: Precipitation will be between one-half and one- inch; over Arkansas, occurring as showers and thundershowers through the period.

GERALDINE LISTON, Clerk By Geraldine Liston Oscar Fendler, Attorney for Plaintiff Leon Burrow, Attorney Ad Litem 8-29, 9-6, 13, 20 One explosion near a U.S. Navy minesweeper caused no casualties and only minor damage to the ship. Sunday a Communist mine sank a small South Vietnamese minesweeper in the Long Tao Channel but the ship went down near the river bank, leaving the waterway open to traffic. Last Tuesday a Communist mine sank the American cargo ship Baton Rouge Victory in tne same channel with a loss of seven lives. In the river attack near Saigon, a Viet Cong mine exploded 15 feet from the U.S. minesweeper, a 57-foot craft with a crew of six. The crew reported receiving small-arms and automatic-weapons fire from the shore but suffered no casualties. U.S. pilots flew 103 missions against the Communist North Sunday, all of them along the Gulf of Tonkin coast and in the southern Panhandle. Pilots struck at seven oil storage depots including one 11 miles southwest of Haiphong. They claimed damage to three depots and probable damage to several others. Pilots also reported they damaged or destroyed 36 barges, 14 bridges, 44 buildings, 26 tricks and 14 railroad freight cars. On the ground, units of the U.S. 173rd Airborne Brigade destroyed 15 enemy bunkers 43 miles southeast of Saigon while pursuing small Viet Cong forces. The airborne troops took light casualties, a U.S. spokesman said, and enemy casualties were not known. American pilots flew 364 sorties over South Viet Nam Sunday and claimed knocking out or damaging 302 enemy huts and other structures, 11 tunnels and 9 bunkers. The Vietnamese minesweeper sank 19 miles southeast of Saigon after hitting an electrically detonated mine in the main i shipping channel to the capital. One Vietnamese crewman was killed and three other persons were wounded, including a U.S. Navy adviser. A government spokesman also reported that a small landing craft hit a Viet Cong mine in a river 54 miles southwest Of Saigon Saturday, causing several casualties. In a continuation of terrorism apparently aimed at undermining confidence in the government before the Sept. 11 elections, the Communists exploded a mine in a newspaper stall only a block from Premier Nguyen Cao Ky's office in Saigon. The blast wounded a Vietnamese cadet from the nearby Thu Due military academy. 1 While Viet Cong terrorism persisted, U.S. military strategists in South Viet Nam were re: ported considering an increase of American forces to 600,000 men in the next 18 months. A Saigon dispatch to the New York Times said the planners were thinking of assigning a third to a half of the GIs to "nation building" pacification projects in densely populated areas, while the rest would b» ised to hit Communist strong- lolds harder. lv " Such an increase would do* )le present troop strength. :,-.'".'; Services B; CM FUNERAL HOME Integrity WILLIAM PERRY LOWOEN, 10:30 a.m Monday, Cobb Chapel. * * * JOELLA WILSON, J p. m., Monday, Cobb Chapel. * * * JOE BOB CUNNINGHAM, 2 p.m., Tuesday, Cobb Chapel.
