In yesterday's Medicine & Science section, Dr. Richard S. Ross was incorrectly identified in a photo caption that accompanied an article about a historic house call to President Richard M. Nixon. Ross was in the center of the photograph, not the far left. The article also incorrectly described Ross as dean of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine at the time; in fact, he was chief of cardiology and later became dean.

An article in yesterday's Sports section reported incorrectly that Maryland Terrapins football place-kicker Nick Novak had suffered a concussion against Duke Oct. 11. Novak experienced headaches last week but was not found to have a concussion.

An article in the Sept. 7 Perspective section about child guardianship incorrectly reported the place where Denise Johnson made remarks about the criminal case of Sheila Avery. Johnson made the remarks as she stood outside a courtroom in Baltimore Circuit Court.

The Sun regrets the errors.
