OGDENITES CAN EXPECT FAIR WEATHER FRIDAY Ogdenites can expect fair and mild temperatures through Friday with cooler weather over the weekend but continued sunny skies. The annual smoke problem that plagues lower . elevations during autumn and early winter, is expected to become more acute during the next few days due to temperature inversions, the National "Weather Service said. Except for periods when skies are cloudy and rain or snow falls, the haze is expected to fluctuate from light to heavy, depending .upon temperatures near the earth's surface. The forecast for Friday calls for highs in the middle 70s with lows in the middle 40s and no chance for moisture. Highs Saturday through Monday however, will be in the middle 60s with lows between 35 and 45 degrees. Ogden's maximum Wednesday was 75 while the low at 7 a.m. today registered 46 degrees. Maximum at Pine View Dam was 70, the minimum, 35.

A rodeo on Nov. 18-20 and a junior miniature-rodeo Nov. 1011 will be major features;of this year's 'Golden Spike National Livestock Show.

' . Mr. Entzminger comes to the Ogden office after serving as Florida National Forest supervisor for some four years.- In that capacity, the forester was responsible for outlining an innovative master plan to be used- on the sprawling Ocala National Forest. Transferred before the plan was put into effect, Mr. Entzminger has indicated that some conservationists felt he was being cashiered and punished for developing the use plan. •"This is untrue," he told newsmen in Park City Wednesday where he is participating in a regional planning confer e,n- c e preparatory to taking over his new post. Mr. Entzminger said he was honored by the conservationists efforts to keep him in Florida tiiat tiie will con- but pointed out programs he began tinue as planned. Regional Forester Vern Harare welcomed his new assistant and said "Bob Entzminger has encouraged public participation in several environmental issues of national significance. "I personally selected him for this position because : of his proven ability as an administrator," Mr. Hamre continued, "and I feel that his new position will be a stepping stone to top Forest Service management positions." . The Regional. Forester indicated Mr. Entzminger's efforts will be directed to a far greater geographic area than Florida. A native of Santa Rosa, Calif., Mr. Entzminger earned his first bachelor's degree in forestry from Oklahoma State University and won a second B.S. in foreign trade from the American Institute for Foreign Trade in Phoenix, Ariz. He is a 15-year veteran of the Forest Service and has served in a number of ranger districts in California.
