An article yesterday misstated the number of University of Maryland, College Park students arrested after a February basketball game against Duke University and did not clearly state the date of another incident at a basketball game. Of the 14 people arrested in February, seven were university students. Students chanted obscenities after a Duke game in January 2004.

An article yesterday about the elimination of a Medicaid program for pregnant women and children incorrectly characterized the estimated 400 pregnant women seen by Holy Cross Hospital in Montgomery County in a year. That number represents only the women served by Holy Cross who are eligible for the state program that is being cut.

In a Business Digest item yesterday about Lee Enterprises Inc., the Associated Press erroneously reported that the company's acquisition of Pulitzer Inc. will cause earnings to decline 8 cents to 10 cents per share for the rest of 2005. Lee expects the decline to occur in its fiscal year 2005, which ends in September.

The Sun regrets the errors.
