Blyfhevfflt (Ark.) Courlw News - Friday, Jun« », 19«T - Page Wve Daily Record Weather U. S Weather Bureau Agricultural Service Keiset, Ark. Isolated thundershowers bioke out. in northeast Arkansas yesterday afternoon. Elsewhere a warm weaiher pattern persisted. Frontal systems are expected to stagnate to the west of the state during the next several days. Cooler air will likely sag southward early next week to provide somewhat cooler temperatures and a little higher shower probability. In the meantime minor afternoon thundershower activity will develop in isolated spots in Arkansas. Yesterday's highs ranged from 84 at Fayetteville to 91 at Batesville and Calico Rock. Overnight lows were in the 60s and low 70s. The five-day forecast, ,6 a.m. Saturday to 6 a.m. next Thursday, calls for temperatures to average near normal with some cooling early next week and warming again by mid week. Normal highs 85 to 90. Normal lows 64 to 69. Rainfall will average about a half-inch in northern Arkansas and a quarter-inch elsewhere in the state. It will occur mainly as thundershowers most likely about Sunday or Monday. The warm dry week has been a welcome change. Delta farmers are having favorable conditions for planting the remaining soybean crop as well as harvesting winter grains. A shower next week would be •welcome in areas where soybeans are planted following wheat. Thrips control is necessary in gome parts of the delta. Wind conditions will be most favorable early and later in the day with wind speeds too high for good coverage during the day.

Moreover, he added, Mississippi County has a population of some 70,000, while Craighead has approximately 34,000 and Poinsett 29,000. This: means, he said, that in a CAP board formed by a merger of the three counties, Mississippi would have a clear majority. * * * If Craighead and Poinsett want to consolidate, said Jumper, they will have to approach Mississippi County with a formal request for inclusion. Jumper said he had spoken to "War on Poverty" officials in he two counties about the proposal, and that the next move was up to them. He added that here are about 23 other coun- ies in Arkansas which are in he same predicament as are Poinsett and Craighead. No action on the proposal was aken at last night's meeting, mt rather it was introduced so hat the members might begin o make themselves familiar with it. All the counties in Arkansas have had the same chance to form active CAPs, Banks said, and Mississippi County should give very careful considera- !ion befora taking any formal action.

OEO Traffic Deaths Take Sharp Drop CHICAGO (AP) - The nation >s traffic deaths have taken a sharp drop in the first four months of 1967 in comparison to corresponding periods last year. The April death toll was 3,920, compared to 4,360 deaths in April 1966. The four-month total for 1967 was 14,710. This compared with 15,020 last year, a dip of 2 per cent. (Continued from fife One) in the middle-age group. These 50 wil be paid 1 ?1.40 per hour for a 40-hour week, eight hours of which is to be devoted to adult education or training suited to the individual i needs of participants. Initially,! Mainstream will work on improvements within the county drainage districts. According to James Sellers, director of the state Employment Security Division, the chronically unemployed are generally considered to be those persons with a history of several years of annual periods of joblessness lasting 15 weeks or more. » * * Bev. R. W. Raines, appointed by Jumper to administer Mainstream for the three-month trial, told the board ttiat $166,000 had been allpted for the project for that period. Of this sum, he said, 78 percent is earmarked for the wages and services for the enrollees and the remainder is for administration and assorted expenses. The idea behind Mainstream, said Raines, is to upgrade heads of families with a constant history of job failure, for whatever reason, to the level that they will be of value in the labor market. Participants will be required to maintain a savings account for the duration of the program, and also receive basic adult eduction, where needed. The program begins immediately and will run at least through the month of August, at which time the federal government shall decide whether or not it will be extended for a full yar. Jumper also announced the hiring of Jim Mayes as counselor for the program, to work with Raines. Mississippi County has been authorized $240,000 for summer Head Start. The county will have 13 centers with an estimated 885 children enrolled, and some 59 teachers participating, according to Lynn Cox, director. Cox emphasized that Hea<i Start Is not Intended to be Instructional. Rather it is planned to help children make social adjustments which will be necessary when they enter the first grade, and to give them medical and dental treatment as needed. Dr. Nunn told the board that her office was attempting to get some funds diverted to more equipment for the 12 Neighborhood Service Centers now in operation throughout the county. Also, her office was now in the process of hiring aides for each of the centers, with 10 already having been employed. Russell Mosley, director of the Neighborhood Youth Centers, said that the county had been authorized to employ 265 youths in the program for the summer. The program, he said is intended to benefit school-age children from low-income families. All work done by the NYC he said, must be for some nonprofit organization. In response to a motion from the floor, Judge A. A. (Shug) Banks agreed to appoint a committee to inquire into the physical condition of John Bearden, director of the NYC. The reason given for the motion was that, should Bearden be unable to resume his duties in the forseeable future, Mosley shoud be appointed full- time director. Bearden has for ome time been on emergency ick-leave from his position, which is non-salaried. U.N. (Continued from Page One) cus Radio announced that Syria also had accepted the cease- fire. Israel and Jordan had already reached a truce on their front. Iraq was the only active bellig- ernet that had not accepted, but ts troops were on the Jordanian front, and King Hussein said Thursday they, too, were observing the cease-fire. Other Arab delegates were astounded by Egypt's action. Their last word from ek-Kony— jefore he talked to Cairo—was (hat he was going to tell the council Egypt would fight to the ast man. sive activities" and demands hat Israel halt military activities, withdraw behind the armlet ice lines and respect the demilitarized zones. Some dele- jates figured it would get no more than four votes. * * * Jordanian Ambassador We onlygiveour seal to carefully screened local businessmen.

Nasser gave in because lis forces couldn't stop the Israelis and he didn't want to lose any more territory. There was some speculation that the Soviet Union had pressured him into accepting the cease-fire, but Soviet Delegate Nikolai T. Fedorenko appeared to be as surprised as everyone else. Some delegates believed that ih Soviet Union would veto the U.S. resolution. Fedorenko, introducing his own resolution, said the council should "not allow Israel to enjoy the fruits of its criminal aggression." The Soviet resolution "vigorously condemns Israel's aggres- field representative. Toward the end of the meeting, Banks remarked that over for the "War on Poverty" in the county, more than was being spent on the actual operation of the county in a year. he home.
