AT&T apologizes

American Telephone & Telegraph Corp. has dropped the freelance artist who drew a monkey to represent people in Africa for an illustration in an in-house magazine, a company spokesman said.

The drawing in AT&T Focus, a magazine sent to the company's 300,000 employees worldwide, shows characters on several continents conversing by telephone. All are human except the one in Africa, which is a monkey.

The magazine's staff issued an apology.
