An article in Sunday's editions about a World War I artillery shell containing mustard agent that the Army wants to move to Aberdeen Proving Ground for study misstated the stretch of Rehoboth Beach, Del., that was closed in July after the discovery of two live artillery shells. Six hundred feet of beach was closed.

An article in Friday's Maryland section gave an incorrect figure for the locality pay increase granted to federal workers in the Baltimore-Washington area for 2006. The total increase, encompassing an across-the-board raise of 2.1 percent and the locality payment, is 3.44 percent.
