Weather Bnreao Agricultural Service Reiser, Ark, Typical summertime weather with partly cloudy skies and warm temperatures and isolated thundershowers will continue to prevail over the state through Thursday. There are no fronts in our area this morning. The pressure system which has been controlling our weather for the past several days has shown no sign of changes of any magnitude. Until this high pressure ridge does move, our present weather regime will continue. Maximum temperatures yesterday ranged from the high 80s to the mid 90s. Lows this morning remained on the warm side with readings in the 65 to 75- degree bracket. Shower activity over the state yesterday afternoon and last evening was most prevalent over north and central sections. As luck would have it, most of the showers missed the recording stations. Radar reports indicated that varying intensities ranging from less than one- tenth inch per hour to one inch per hour. Most farmers would welcome a shower now, especially those who have planted beans behind the wheat harvest. The chance for showers remains on the order to 20 percent probability for the whole state. Winds are expected to range from 12 to 20 miles per hour today and tomorrow, a little stronger for efficient spraying of herbicides, in some areas. Other weed control activities from machine cultivation to the use of hoe hands are in full swing in most sections.

Even before It went to war, Egypt had a $456-million balance of trade deficit which now will increase as a result of the dim outlook for the country's petroleum production. The Soviet Union may now be reluctant to put up substantial new aid for Egypt. Soviet support for Egypt during the swifl •war was largely verbal, and Nasser's disappointment was reflected in at least four hasty meetings he had with the Soviet ambassador to Cairo, Dimitri Pojadaiev, during the week. Nasser's best hope e ilinuhcs wealthier Arab neighbors as Kuwait, Libya and Bahrain, which may be willing to come through with loans in the name of Arab solidarity. The Nasser regime continues to brainwash the Egyptian population, which so far'has not been told the dimensions of Egypt's defeat. Cairo newspapers are full of accusations against the United States, branded the architect of Israel's victory. Cairo radio directs a steady drumfire of propaganda against the United States. The average Egyptian firmly believes the- United States supplied air support for Israel. Egypt suffers from a disastrous technological gap. The Egyptians had good planes and good radar equipment, but they did not know how to USE either effectively. According to one report, Egyptian pilots at the Abu Sweir airbase were drinking coffee in a ready room when Israeli jets swooped over the field and destroyed all their planes in a napalm raid. The radar was not operting. Nasser has effectively played the United States off against the Soviet Union for many years. But now he has ruptured ties with the United States, and there is dissatisfaction in Egypt because the Soviet Union did nothing practical to aid Egyptian forces in the war. Late last week, Nasser held two meetings with the Chinese Communist ambassador to Cairo. Peking seems eager to step into the vacuum. That would give Nasser a chance to play China against, the Soviet Union. Peking already has given wheat nd a flO-million loan to Nasser, and 1110 million loan to Nasser.
