The fighting in Saigon took a heavy toll of foreign newsmen, with four correspondents killed Sunday and an American photographer-reporter killed today. Three other photographers, including one American, were wounded. Guerrillas held out at three points in Saigon today, and South Vietnamese dive bombers and U.S. helicopter gunshpis pounded them. Viet Cong forces holed up' in a section of shacks and bombarded South Vietnamese troops with mortars and rockets as the government soldiers advanced through the old French military cemetery on the edge of Saigon's Tan Son Nhut air base. The senior U.S. officer estimated an enemy battalion was in the cemetery area. He said the total number of enemy troops in Saigon was small compared to the 3,000-5,000 in the Tet offensive. Another : 10,000 was committed then to attacks in provinces around Saigon. Some of the guerrillas were fighting from stilt houses.along the Saigon River, on the northern edge of the capital, and black smoke from burning shanties rose thousands of feet. Tan Son Nhut itself was shelled, and a South Vietnamese military spokesman 1 said', one person was killed and, wounded. Presumably they were South Vietnamese since the U.S. Command said it had no reports of American casualties or damage at the airport.

The cool high pressure cell which dropped temperatures into the 30s and 40s this morning, is moving eastward and. warmer reading will be the rule today and tonight. A. developing low pressure center in the plains will result in increasing southerly, winds and thundershower activity is expected to begin in west Arkansas tonight and spread eastward over the entire state Tuesday. Weather Effects on Agriculture—The north delta missed the showers which drenched parts of the central and south delta last Friday. After two good drying 'days, parts of the central delta will be ready to work again this afternoon. But the south delta will need more time to dry out wet soils. The probability of showers again in the south delta on Tuesday is a discouraging one. Below-normal temperatures this week will be reflected in cooler soil temperatures.
