Community leaders apologized Thursday for a cross burning at the nation's only high school for the children of Japanese business executives, and police stepped up patrols to prevent another "sick prank." The crude 6 1/2-foot wooden cross was set ablaze Tuesday night at the stone entrance gate to the Japanese government's Tennessee Meiji Gakuin High School, eight days after it opened with 24 students. No arrests have been made. Sweetwater Police Commissioner Jim Burris and Police Chief Mike Jenkins went to the school to apologize on behalf of the city of 5,310 in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.

They can't smoke or chew tobacco, but the leaf is part of daily life and even class work for some teenagers at David Crockett High School. This is tobacco-farming country, and about 200 agriculture-vocational students at the school grow tobacco on school grounds, as do pupils in about 30 other high schools in Tennessee. "We have programs involved in tobacco because the community is involved in it," said Will Lewis, director of secondary vocational programs for the state Education Department.

The field where Jackie Robinson, Pee Wee Reese and other fabled figures played is just a baseball memory and many seats from the demolished stadium had been left to fade in the sun and snow.
