An editorial yesterday about the 3rd District City Council race implied that councilmen Martin E. "Mike" Curran and Wilbur E. "Bill" Cunningham had endorsed Maegertha Whitaker for the district's third councilmanic seat. We wish to make clear that Whitaker is not running on Curran and Cunningham's ticket.

Obsessed with how people dress, New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham unfailingly dons the same shapeless jacket; a chronicler of ritzy charity events, the octogenarian tools around Manhattan on a bike. Cunningham's two weekly spreads in the Sunday Style section form complementary opposites: "On the Street" features everyday Gothamites decked out in eclectic fashion statements, while "Evening Hours" captures the rich clad in haute couture. Whatever the Times-produced, TV-ready tribute, "Bill Cunningham New York," lacks in tension is amply compensated by the pleasure of watching an enthusiast ply the craft he loves.

The two hottest questions in the City Council race in Northeast Baltimore's Third District are:* Can the Currans retain a seat a family member has held since 1963 now that Martin E. "Mike" Curran is retiring?* Will an African-American finally be elected to the council from the district that has undergone a gradual racial change and now has a majority of black voters?The answer to the first question seems to be "yes," regardless of how Robert W. Curran, a brother of the retiring councilman and of Maryland's attorney general, does in the election.

Visitors to the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan are in for a bit of a shock. The sprawling basement gallery areas, which once exhibited the clothes of Queen Victoria and Catherine the Great, have been converted into an employees cafeteria.The transformation, which will reduce the exhibition area from six major galleries to one, began in late spring without official announcement.Employees now consume soup and sandwiches in the area that once displayed the dress in which Empress Elizabeth of Austria was stabbed and killed (the knife hole is still in the dress)

Over a Carroll County cornfield yesterday, kites soared hundreds of feet in the air, fluttered perilously close to treetops and sometimes crashed to the dusty ground.It was the 12th annual "April Kite Sail," courtesy of kite enthusiast Bill Cunningham, who invites friends, family and kite lovers to join him each year for a high-flying rite of spring on a Manchester hilltop.Cunningham, who describes himself as 40-something, always schedules the "kite sail" for the third Sunday in April, when, according to the Farmers Almanac, good weather is a good bet. The almanac isn't always right -- veteran kite sailors recall some rainy, cold days -- but yesterday didn't disappoint.

David Krause was scared, but this 11-year-old wasn't dead yet: He slathered insect repellent on his arms and legs and, with his bunkmates' help, shut tight the cabin's doors and windows.Just minutes earlier, a counselor had rushed to the campfire: A giant bug called a "needle-finch" is coming this way! Run! If it bites you twice, you'll die!The boys and girls sprinted to their bunks.Although 4-H summer camp had unexpectedly put his life in mortal danger, Krause did what any level-headed camper does when suddenly confronted with free time: He wrote a letter to his parents.

An article in Wednesday's final editions mischaracterized the position of 3rd District Councilman Wilbur "Bill" Cunningham, defeated Tuesday in his bid for re-election, on the Pulaski incinerator. Mr. Cunningham supported the five-year moratorium on incinerators passed by the council in 1992. Last year, he co-sponsored a bill that would have ended the moratorium, because, he said, the city needed to replace the incinerator in order to fulfill agreements Baltimore made to cooperate regionally in the disposal of waste.

We wish to make clear that Whitaker is not running on Curran and Cunningham's ticket.America is a nation of immigrants, and the most interesting Americans are those who decide to leave the fold in their native land. When, around mid-century, Irish and Italians from East Baltimore's crowded 10th Ward -- roughly the area surrounding the state prison -- looked to where the good life beckoned, it was winking at them from the green acres of the 3rd District in the city's northeastern quadrant.
