An article in the Today section in Thursday's editions of The Sun misidentified Mary Denver, head veterinarian at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore.

Because information supplied by a public relations firm confused two persons of the same name, The Sun misstated the background of Annapolis sailor John Bertrand in an article in yesterday's editions. In February, he won the first leg of the nine-stop National Offshore One-Design regatta in St. Petersburg, Fla. He is competing in the Annapolis NOOD regatta this weekend.

John Bertrand of Australia won the America's Cup in 1993. He is not competing this weekend.

A Sports Digest item in yesterday's editions about a proposed change in procedure for varsity athletes seeking to transfer to another member school within the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association, should have said that if the transfer request is approved in the spring, the athlete would be eligible to play the following September.

The Sun regrets the errors.
