A photo in the Business section yesterday was misidentified as Edward J. Kelly III, Mercantile Bankshares Corp. president and chief executive. He is pictured above.

In an article yesterday about a dispute between state Comptroller William Donald Schaefer and state Treasurer Richard N. Dixon, some of the wording attributed to Schaefer was incorrect. Of the Johns Hopkins University, Schaefer said: "I was there yesterday and I saw many Afro-American students on the campus grounds." And in response to Dixon noting that the proper phrase is "African-American," Schaefer said: "American - African-Americans, whatever you call it, because that's the only thing you seem to know."

An article yesterday about a Supreme Court ruling on the drawing of congressional districts misidentified the group represented by Adam Stein, a North Carolina lawyer. He argued the case on behalf of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund Inc.

The Sun regrets the errors.
