HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) _ Organ donation is the big issue for the new Miss Arkansas. She's Eudora Mosby of Little Rock, crowned last night at Hot Springs.

The 22-year-old Mosby competed in the state pageant as Miss Central Arkansas. She is a graduate of the University of Central Arkansas at Conway, with a degree in history and a minor in African-American studies.

Mosby also won the Coleman Dairy talent award for best overall talent -- a vocal rendition called ``Dream in Color.'' She also won the Amelia Mosley Russell interview award for the best responses to questions from five out-of-state judges. Her platform issue is ``Organ and Tissue Donation -- Give the Gift of Life.''

Mosby is the daughter of Ronny and Kay Mosby of Hazen. She will represent Arkansas at the Miss America Pageant in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Mosby was chosen from five finalists.

The other four finalists were first runner-up Adrielle Churchill of Dover, competing as Miss White River -- second runner-up Katie Bailey of Conway, Miss Diamond Lakes -- third runner-up Stephanie DeClerk of Pocahontas, Miss Lights of the Delta -- and fourth runner-up Allison Waldrip of Moro, Miss Northwest Arkansas.

The other five semifinalists were and Rebecca Stengel of Paris, Miss Arkansas River -- Amber Bennett of Carlisle, Miss Three Rivers -- Rhonda Allen of Jacksonville, Miss Little Rock -- Rachel Howells of Alma, Miss Western Arkansas -- and Kristin Freeman of Sheridan, Miss Delta.
