Last week the Times carried a
story about Ervin T: Kornegay, son
of E. T. Kornegay of Albertson, be
ing stationed at Camp Gordon. . In
this stery we stated tnat ne was a
Negro and from Kenansville. Rt. 1.
This was an error we are glad o
make a correction, vwe published
the story as sent us from the pub
lic relations department at Camp
Gordon. On reading it we thought
at first it was Ervin of Albertson
but regarding the story it stated
definitely that he was from Ken
ansville and that he attended ths
North Carolina College of A & E.
On the basis of this information we
concluded there was a colored Er
vin Kornegay ' whom we did not
Ervin attended N. C. State Col
lege, a member of the R.O.T.C.
We feel sure the error was an
oversizht on the part of the person
who wrote the story, it seems to
us that the public relations depart
ment of the Army and Navy would
distinguish in their, stories whether
the personnel being written about
are white or colored. Presidc-nt
