• Maj. J. J. Harrison, who has been appointed by Lieut. Col. Theodore Roosevelt Jr., as temporary state chairman of a proposed organization of war veterans, addressed the members and guests of the Lions' Club yesterday at the luncheon hour at the Hotel Marion. He was asked to tell something about the proposed "American Veterans' Legion," but he said only very sketchy ideas had been given out from headquarters as to details of the plan. "It will not be political in character," he said, "but it will be interested in politics, I am sure, and it will exert a tremendous political influence, for I think we are going have ex-soldiers running the world for the next generation or two."

• The clouds hanging over opening night at Dickey-Stephens Park had nothing to do with the weather Thursday in North Little Rock. The Arkansas Travelers, Class AA affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels, mourned the loss of Angels pitcher and former Traveler Nick Adenhart, who was killed in a hit-and-run crash in California early Thursday morning. "Shocking is the word that describes it," said third-year Travelers Manager Bobby Magallanes, who managed Adenhart at Arkansas in 2007. "I can't believe this really is true and it really has happened. But it's reality, and once reality hits, it starts hurting. And we're hurt. We're saddened by this loss."
