Sen. Kennedy: An article in the July 26 Section A about Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's role in Congress' healthcare debate said Sen. Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah) urged his friend to stop drinking after the Massachusetts Democrat's 1969 car accident at Chappaquiddick. Hatch gave the advice in 1991, after Kennedy spent an evening at a Florida bar with nephew William Kennedy Smith, who subsequently was charged with rape and later acquitted.
