Correction

Because of an editing error, Gen. Dwight (Ike) Eisenhower was deprived of one star in a photo caption that ran June 11. (See: "How do you do, Mr. President?" page 18.) General (later President) Eisenhower had five stars, not four. The five-star rank was created in World War II and bestowed on George Marshall, Douglas MacArthur, Eisenhower, and Henry Arnold. Three US Navy admirals also had five-star rank in that war: William Leahy, Ernest King, and Chester Nimitz.
