—An error occurred in the Obituary for Oscar Auerbach, MD, published in the April 2,1997, issue of THE JOURNAL (1997;277:1088). In the third paragraph, the fourth sentence should read as follows: He showed that changes were more pronounced in heavy smokers than in light smokers and nonsmokers, and were less prominent upon smoking cessation, thus establishing strong evidence in support of epidemiologic investigations linking smoking to cancer of the lung. THE JOURNAL regrets the error.
