But the First Stale Bank of Rio Vista, better known to its customers as the Cow Pasture Bank, boasts 12.000 customers and deposits of S21.4 million, up nearly $3 million from a year ago. While many small town bunkers brood over sagging deposits, Lowell Smith Jr. says continuity of management is the of his bank's suc- presicient of the real secret cess. Smith is "-; WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (AP) ^-- Ken Coon, the Republican ·candidate for governor, said 'Tuesday night that David Pryor was afraid to reveal the names of his campaign contributors because many of them had ties with the days ot former Gov. ·Orval E.

Pryor defeated Faubus and · Lt. Gov. Bob C.

"The rescue operation will cease completely by this evening," said an Air Force spokesman at Clark Air Base, 50 miles north of Manila. "We have had no sightings." The spokesman said the six crewmen of the missing WC130 Hercules turbojet would be considered missing and not dead. The search over as much as 12,500 square miles of the South China Sea lasted four days, but the Air Force said it was being called off 'because of the ap- Nuclear Ship Is Allowed Back To Port AOMORI, Japan (AP) -- The Japanese nuclear-powered car- jo ship Mutsu. which drifted in jie northern Pacific for seven weeks, has slipped back into its home port after the government granted concessions to local fishermen concerned about their scallops industry.

The Air Force identified the missing crow members as 1st. Lt. Gary W. Crass of Conway, Ark., aircraft commander; 1st. Lt. Michael P. O'Brian of Bellevue. Wash., co-pilot; 1st. Lt. Timothy Hoggman of Phoenix, Ariz., navigator; Capt. Edward R. Bushnell of Blandinsville, III., weather officer; S.Sgt. Kenneth G. Suhr of Plainview, Neb.., flight engineer, and Sgt. Dell'ef W.

It managed to put to sea Aug. 26 during a slorm, but its reactor developed a radiation leak on Sept. 1, apparently due lo a defective shield, and the government ordered it back for repairs. This time the fishermen refused to allow the 8,214-ton vessel to return. Most crew members were taken off, and the Mutsu drifted helplessly until Tuesday, when the fishermen relented and allowed the Vessel to steam back to port on an auxiliary diesel engine. ) In relurn the government agreed to find a new base for the vessel arid to meet most of the fishermen's demands' for compensation. The government's special en- /oy, Zenko Suzuki, promised local officials and fishermen thai a new port will be named within six months and that the Mutsu's home port will be moved within 30 months. He also pledged that the Mutsu's reactor will be sealed father more than 50 years ago. His father, who "is crowding 80," still is chairman of ti» bank's board. Some novel marketing approaches also help explain the bank's success. First, it's probably the only bank with fly-in service. A customer can land on the airstrip in the pasture behind the bank and walk up to the window lo make a deposit or withdrawal. "Quile a few people fly in each week to make deposits." Smith said in an interview. "I guess it's a convenience other banks don't offer." The strip behind the bank is on the Smith family ranch on the outskirts of town. The bank itself operates from an unpretentious, Western-style building. The interior is decorated with painted scenes and pictures depicting Western life. And then there are the bank checks with a cartoon drawing of a cowboy Irying lo rope a sleer and "making his usual mistakes." "We try to play upon humor and give people a lift in our advertising," said Smith. "People appreciate a little humor in anything. We just try lo give a boosl to Ihe lighter side of life. "Some people put money in our bank just so they can use Ihe checks all over Ihe counlry and the world," he said. The bank has a three-county service area "which is pretty much open country." A substantial amount of business comes from farmers and ranch- Cave Springs Man Is Dead Of Rifle Bias} CAVE SPRINGS -- A Cave Springs man is dead and his wife hospitalized following a Tuesday night shooting incident, according to Cave Springs Police Chief Travis Barnett. Barnett identified the dead man as Don Thatcher, age unknown. B a r n e t t said Thatcher wounded his wife. I.oni, 33, then apparently turned the gun on himself. Barnett said Thatcher was Greenland School District Asks Reimbursement 01 Taxes A four-year-old dispute over school district boundaries and taxation rights on a 40-acre plot of land caused tho Greenland School District Tuesday to file a complaint in the Washington Circuit Court against the Washington County Board of Education (WCBE). The Greenland School District seeks a reimbursement of school taxes which have been paid on the land since June 18, found by police in the hallway of his home with a gunshot wound in the head. He said Thatcher had apparently shot himself several times. . The gun was found near the body along with several spent shell casings. Barnett said Thatcher had been despondent for some time. The incident occured shortly before 9 p.m. at the couple's mobile home near the intersection of Hwys. 264 and 112. After she was wounded, Mrs. Thatcher ran about two blocks to the Northside Cafe where help was summoned. She was taken to Springdale Memorial Hospital where she was listed in satisfactory condition today. A spokesman for Benton County Coroner Carl McKinney said no ruling had been made on the'cause of death at mid-morning. The Benton County sheriff's office refused to discuss the Incident. ers, but many of the bank's customers -live in the Dallas- Fort Worth area which is less than an hour's drive away. Many of these customers once lived in Rio Vista 'but have moved to the big cities . Three generations of the Smith family work in the bank. Smith's nephew is a vice president. The bank employs about 55 workers. Smith said being small is an advantage for the bank. "We try to maintain personal contact with our customers. We've been here a long time. We certainly want to have a modest outlook because we're not trying to be anything a bank can't be. while she is docked, its uranium rods will not be removed in the home port and the government will pay ?4.3 million compensation to the fishermen. Stopped Train Delays Ambulance SPRINGDALE -- Emergency aid to a man injured in two-car accident on Hwy. east was delayed this morning when the Springdale ambulance was blocked by a northbound train. The ambulance had to double back from East Emma Avenue (Hwy. G8 east) to cross the tracks at Caudle Avenue. The delay the injuries did not aggravate of Carl Malcolm Employment Grows At Slow Pace WASHINGTON (AP) -- Nearly half of the persons seeking jobs during the last three months could not find work, the Labor Department says. In a quarterly report on employment, the department said Tuesday that about 50 per cent of the five million persons unemployed during the third quarter had been seeking jobs 'or less than five weeks, but nearly one million had been searching for 15 weeks or lore. The report said the nation's jobless rate, which rose to 5,E per cent in September, averaged 5.5 per cent for the last three-month period. Employment continued to grow during the quarter, but at a relatively slow pace, the department said. "An important factor in the sluggish employment picture has been the slump in the con struction industry," the depart ment added. H said the pro longed decline in housing starts had an adverse effect on re -- lum ber, furniture and appliances Unemployment in the construe tion industry has climbed to nearly 13 per cent.

Upon arrival, Patrolman Randy Bradley observed a youth running from the rear of the house. Bradley apprehended the youth and placed him in custody. Other police units were called to the residence and the other two youlhs were found inside the home. Ages of the youths are 15, 16 and 17. The owner of the home, Mrs. Judy Johnson, told police that a small amount of money, in the form of coins and bills, was missing from her son's coin collection. Charges against the three are expected to be filed in Washington Juvenile Court. Fords Celebrate 26th Anniversary WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Ford gave his wife a diamond-studded brooch of the presidential seal and arranged a While House serenade to celebrate their 26th wedding anniversary. Standing on a White House Balcony Tuesday, the President and Mrs. Ford were saluted by Tennessee Ernie Ford and a Grand Ole Opry troupe which sang the "Anniversary Waltz." The presidential couple held hands and beamed at the crowd below as they observed what the President called "a very special day in our life." He said 26 years di married life "has been great." Mrs. Ford gave the President a newly replated silver football that he had received in the IBiiOs when he played center for the University of Michigan football team. She also had two silver loving cups that were Ford's trophies reflated. MICKEY MOUSE WINS REPRIEVE SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP) Yogi Bear and Mickey Mouse have been repreived by state officials. Both were among cartoon characters used to help children in Bement, 111., find their school buses, but they conflicted with federal regulations specifying how the vehicles should be painted. State officials decided Tuesday, however, that the cartoons can stay anyway. "It's one thing to have rules, but there's also such a thing as common sense," said Langhorne Bond, head of the Illinois Department of Transportation. Bement School Supt. Ray Belcher had cartoon figures of Mickey Mouse, Yogi Bear and other animals painted on the hoods of the school buses to help small children tell them apart. Belcher gave credit for the idea to a lost boy. He couldn't find his bus, but he knew his driver looked like Yogi the bear. I thought if he could remember that maybe we ought to put a picture of Yogi on the bus," said Belcher. "It worked great. No more lost kids," he said. Smilh is not loo concerned about the nation's problems, although he admits he's "not very good at forecasting." "We tend to feel like a fellow oughl to keep doing what he's doing and I guess that's about as good a philosophy as anything. "I've got a lot of confidence ... America," he added. "She has a way of coming through."
