In Wednesday's Sun, an article about the Eshkol Academy reported that Rabbi David Lapin, a one-time employee of the school, was targeted by the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands over a $1.2 million contract. The information was credited to a New York Times report that was subsequently corrected; the government of the islands did not say it was questioning Lapin but has said it has been unable to determine what work Lapin performed for that fee. Efforts to reach Lapin before the publication of The Sun's article were unsuccessful. Lapin told The Sun yesterday that he charged appropriately for his work.

Based on wrong information supplied by city police, articles in Wednesday's and yesterday's editions incorrectly reported the date that 13-year-old Elie Caldwell disappeared while playing in Gwynns Falls in Southwest Baltimore. He drowned on Monday, the same day he was reported missing by his mother, and his body was found on Tuesday.

Because of incorrect information supplied by Churchill Downs, the time for a Tuesday workout by Preakness entrant High Fly was incorrectly reported Wednesday in The Sun. High Fly ran five furlongs in 1 minute, 3.20 seconds.

Because of erroneous information from the Associated Press, a May 19 Business section article about the verdict in Ron Perelman's lawsuit against Morgan Stanley referred to Elizabeth Maass as a U.S. district judge. She is a Palm Beach County, Fla., circuit judge.

The Sun regrets the errors.
