>> The company chosen to market Hawaii to Europe is named the Mangum Group. It was misidentified as the Magnum Group in an early version of a story on Page A1 yesterday.

>> References in an editorial on Page A10 Monday about Kamehameha Schools' policy of admitting only native Hawaiian students included incorrect references to a U.S. Supreme Court case. A quotation attributed to a 1985 Supreme Court ruling actually was from a brief filed with the court. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 denies federal assistance to any private school practicing racial discrimination, but that particular law does not, as the editorial stated, prohibit discrimination by a private school not receiving federal funds. A quotation from Congress asserting that it intended to protect every citizen against discrimination, regardless of race, pertained to the Civil Rights Act of 1866, not the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
