    A photo in the previous issue of FERMINEWS (Vol. 23, No. 10, May 26,2000), "Symposium on Fixed-Target Program with the Tevatron") was identified as: "Current Fermilab Director Michael Witherell with experiment E691 in 1979." The experiment pictured was actually E567. Experiment E691 was not approved until 1983. FERMINEWS regrets the error.
