■ Sally Miller Per­due, the 1958 Miss Arkansas and a Repub­li­can loser in the 1984 Pine Bluff may­oral race, claimed dur­ing a syn­di­cated talk show that she had a 3½ to 4 month sex­ual af­fair with Gov. Bill Clin­ton in late 1983. Per­due, 53, said on Sally Jessy Raphael’s taped talk show, that she and Clin­ton, 45, had never been seen to­gether pub­licly. Per­due, who said she was at­tend­ing col­lege in St. Louis, added that only four peo­ple had known about the al­leged af­fair at the time. One of those iden­ti­fied as a friend, Anna Lessenby, also ap­peared on the pro­gram, but said she had never seen Per­due and Clin­ton to­gether. She also said that she would vote for Clin­ton, the Demo­cratic pres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee.

Ac­cord­ing to an ar­rest af­fi­davit, sev­eral wit­nesses told de­tec­tives that Os­borne had been try­ing to buy drugs when Adrow pointed a re­volver at him and de­manded his money. Two weeks ear­lier, Adrow was be­ing held at the Pu­laski County jail af­ter Lit­tle Rock po­lice charged her with res­i­den­tial bur­glary and theft, court records show. Be­cause of a short­age of beds, Adrow was re­leased from the jail on her own re­cog­ni­zance, de­spite not pay­ing a bond.
