Warren and El Dorado received more than an inch of moisture while Ozark, at the other end of the scale, only had .06 to report. The rain activity will decrease today although considerable cloudiness will remain in evidence. The approach of a rapidly! moving cold front from the northwest will likely set up some scattered showers again tonight and tomorrow. Present indications are that we cannot expect any definite clearing trend until about Thursday after the frontal system has moved through our area. During the past 24 hours cloudiness and rain have minimized the range of temperatures. Highs yesterday were generally in (he 50s while lows this morning were mostly in the 40s. Widespread rain yesterday las effectively brought to a halt iiarvest activities over the state. With cloudy skies, cool temperatures and more showers likely some areas of the state will remain too wet for harvest activities to resume before the weekend or early next week.

They have a 16-year- year - old daughter (I'll call her "Jane") who is the age of our oldest daughter. "Jane' spent the entire evening sitting on the arm of my husband's chair. She had her arm around him, fooling with his hair, playfully fishing in his skirt pockets and generally playing up to him. I was horrified as my children watched this exhibition. Jane's parents acted as tho they thought it was cute. When they left I was white with anger. I will say my husband didn't encourage the girl, but he didn't discourage her either. We can't avoid seeing these people, but I can't take another evening like that one. How can it be avoided with- proper parking and Miss Montgomery with failure to yield right of way.

DEAR ABBY: I used to go with a real sweet boy, but I moved away. I tried to make the best of it so I made new friends. Then I got asked to a party by another boy and my first boy friend got real mad. He asked me for his ring and all the love letters he had written to me. I didn't mind giving him back his ring, but I Was wondering about the letters. I know if I send them back to him he will just rip them up because if his mother ever saw those letters he would be in real trouble. I'd like to keep his letters for memories because he was the first boy I ever loved. What do y o u suggest? WANTS MEMORIES Dear Wants: If I. were you, I'd rip up the letters because if YOUR mother ever found them, YOU might be in real trouble. DEAR ABBY: Our daughter (I'll call her Pam) is being married this Christmas and we are planning to give her a lovely big church wedding. Her older sister (I'll call Sue) was married eight years ago at a very simple wedding because that was all we could afford at the time. Our problem is that well- meaning relatives have tipped us off that Sue is very hurt because SHE didn't get anywhere near the kind of wedding we are planning for Pam and we would be wise to hold down the wedding a bit for Sue's sake. Now I am really torn. I love both girls equally and don't want hard feelings in the family. What do you think!
