A car entrance displays a jesting sign on its front bumper: "Refugee from Occupied Arkansas." The last time you arrivec. at this airport, on Sept. 24, no one was making jokes about military occupation.

A cruising jeep with two guardsmen in it completes the deployment of military force outside the building. First Sign of Tension Newspapermen are not allowed inside Central High, salesmen" are.
