An article in yesterday's editions of The Sun incorrectly described Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McGuire's position on slot machine gambling. He is opposed to slot machines at horse tracks. But he said he would support a statewide referendum on whether to allow state-owned and -operated slot machines at three to five locations, with 10 percent of the proceeds going to racing purses and the remainder earmarked for tax relief.

A headline for the same article suggested incorrectly that a television advertisement for Raymond F. Schoenke Jr. proposes to pay for educational programs with revenues from slot machines. The advertisement advocates the programs but does not specify how the programs would be funded; the candidate himself mentioned slot machines in an interview.

The Sun regrets the errors.
