0Iythevtn« (Ark.) Courier News -Friday, May 31,1988 - Pap Km* Daily Record Weather V. Si Weather Bureau Agricultural Service Keiscr, Ark. Genera] Weather Features — Thundershowers are breaking out in widely-scattered areas of the siate this morning from the southeast to the northwest. These thtindershowers will die out later this morning only to reform .late? this afternoon and tonight. They are part of a weather disturbance in the plains which is moving eastward with increasing rainfall probabilities for the entire state tonight and Saturday. Weather Effects on Agriculture — Much of the south delta will be rained out by thundershowers this morning and continuing shower activity tonight and Saturday is likely to add some substantial amounts. This should delay much field work until midweek next week in some areas of heavier showers. In the north delta, shower activity is expected to be delayed jintil late this afternoon and Saturday. This will allow most of a day's field work in many localities.- Increasing shower probability tomorrow will close down opeartions in many localities. The high and increasing shower probability into Saturday would make hay cutting today a very poor risk. Five-Day Forecast — Thursday through Wednesday temperatures will average two to six degrees below normal. Warm through end of the week but turning a little cooler early next week. Normal highs 82 to 87. Normal lows 61 to 67. Rainfall will total near one inch but locally over one-and-one-half inches in heavier thundershowers most numerous over the weekend.

DEMO (Contained from Page One) the : best of their ability.-'' Of the five hopefuls seeking the Democratic nomination for Lt, Gov., three we're present at the rally, and each of the three, Gilbert Leigh, Julian James and Bill Herndon, were content to merely blast the Republican administration, rather than convince the ^oters they must first prove themseves by,defeating one another in the primary before taking on the task of ousting the Republican incumbent. When the gubernatorial candidates finally took their turns it the rostrum, Ted Boswell, managed to bring but a point the previous speakers missed when he said, '"The voters in Arkansas must choose carefully to pick the most competent candidate in the summer primary in order to present the best opposition to the Eepublicans in November, otherwise, the primary election will only be an exercise in futility. "What Arkansas needs is new solutions for old problems, and I am here'to ask you to help me win to make the Party one of progress. •. "During the campaign," Boswell said, "I encourage the voters to ask me ; for answers to questions, but," he cautioned "if you don't want a direct answer to a direct question, ; then don't ask Ted Boswell." Marion Crank, who has been Fullerfon Rites Are 2 Saturday Mrs. Melba Fullerton, 38, wife of Richard L. Fullerton of 416 E. Kentucky, died yesterday morning in Memphis' Baptist. Hospital. She was a. pathologist's assistant at Chickasawba Hospital.:. Born in Blytheville, she had lived here all of her life. She was Noble Grand of the Joy Rebekah Lodge of Blytheville. She was also a Methodist. . In addition to her husband she leaves her father, Erby Shelton of Blytheville; Two sons, Ricky Fullerton and Mike Fullerton, both of the home; A sister, Mrs. Bobby Sweet of Bridgeyiew, Dl.; Two brothers,-Ernest Shelton of Los Angeles, Calif., and Billy D.

Pallbearers will be Ronald Jones, James Jones, D e w e y Jones, Stan Jones, Boyd Shelton and Noble Shelton. labeled the candidate of the eld guard and the helr'to theiFau- bus administration by some observers, lamented for the umpteenth time the spending of the Rockefeller forces s a y i n g, "when this administration took office there was $40 million I available to them for the oper- I'ation of the state government, $24 million of which could be spent in any.way that they desired, but now it is all gone and they (the Republicans) are calling for new taxes." The veteran of some 15 years in the Arkansas legislature then .stated that before he would ask for a raise in taxesj he would tell the voters where the tax money would be spent, rather than waiting until the state's finances were in jeopardy before making he request'. In making such a statement, Crank did not say. that he WOULDN'T raise taxes, only that he would go about it in a different way. * * *. : Possibly the most thought- provoking speech of the day was made by Frank Whitbeck, the tittle Rock businessman seeking the governorship. Whitbeck told the crowd, "I believe a businessman is needed in the governor's office, and I am going to give the people a clear-cut choice in what they want for .the state. "We have made many advances in the state, but we find ourselves in a position today, where it;has become possible that we .will get to. the moon before we can learn to live together in peace. "Only by working together can we hope to build bridges of progress instead of walls' between us. "The voters have a choice now between success or failure, the Democratic or the Republican party, lawlessness or anarchy, and sobriety or carelessness. "I am asking the voters of Arkansas to make this choice for me, simply because' I love' Arkansas. "As a businessman, I know ho* many pennies are in a dollar and I know how to sweep the spendthrifts .out of the capital in Little Rock and to build for the future .of Arkansas." *.-•*• * Alexander's . speech, which had been billed by one of his spokesmen several days earlier as "a major address on the critical issues of the campaign" for the nomination to the First District's house seat in Washington, came on 'like warmed over hash after being promised sirloin steak.. He repeated what he has said on previous occasions about being concerned with the loss of population in Eastern Arkansas to the large metropolitan areas and cited the need to develop natural resources and attract agriculturally - related industry to stem the . outward flow of manpower. "We must meet .the chalenge of our times," Alexander explained as he discussed his views of the ria/ional scene say- STRIKE (Continued from Page One) went into effect at midnight. The government announced that it was reimposing strict controls over exchanges and movement of capital "to assure the defense of the national interest." export of all capital- money, checks and gold—was forbidden except with Finance Ministry approval. The government ended a 16- month period of free exchange after mistrust of the franc drove it to its bottom level of 4.9740 to the dollar, at which point the Bank of France is obligated to intervene. Though De Gaulle showed he was. willing to subject the government's case to an electoral test, he warned that he would use force if necessary to regain control of the divided country. If there is a situation "where force is being used I will have to take. ..other paths than the immediate polling of the coun- .try," he said. The Communist party's political bureau replied, "To those millions of Frenchmen who want' a change of policy, De Gaulle replies with a veritable ing that an end must be brought about to the conflict in Vietnam, in addition to cutting foreign aid to those countries which are not serving the best interests of the United States. Alexander called for a return to the old fashioned principles of patriotism, and an end to the voice of dissent now being raised by. many American students throughout the country. "I will represent all of the people of Eastern Arkansas, not just a certain segment, because I understand the needs and wants of the people of Eastern Arkansas," Alexander said in closing the rally. declaration of war." Francois Mitterrand, leader, of the non-Communist left, said, "Gen. De Gaulle's latest act is an appeal to civil war." Meanwhile, the, trade unions said the general strike begun two weeks ago would continue despite overtures by government officials to get the workers back on the job. There was no indication that De Gaulle was prepared to use force to dislodge workers from occupied plants, shops and offices. The Defense Ministry denied reports that troops were being moved from West Germany back to France. But military sources said a number of army units that have been on maneuvers are' returning to their bases. There was no indication whether the maneuvers were cut short.
