Editor Maui Nmvs:
In reporting the Charles A. Rice
campaign through Hawaii, in a re
cent issue, you stated on my au
thority, that G overnor Baker was
handling the campaign on that
island. I unintentionally erred in
this, as it was Senator Baker I in
tended to refer to. I shall be pleased
to have you make this correction.
