German Prof. dies at 59

Professor Valentine Hubbs, who
was a high ranking expert on German
Classicism and early 19th century
.Romanticism, died Thanksgiving day
at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital.
Qerman classes that he was
teaching will continue as usual with
new instructors, but there will be a
gap in the department caused by his
,.'ath. Hubbs, 59, died of an
" 4eurysm of the brain.
"IT WILL leave a terrible hole in
our department, he was a dear friend

to us all, and one of the most
significant periods in German
literature is now left vacant (of an ex-
pert)," said Prof. Robert Kyes,
chairman of the German department.
He was teaching two classes this
term, a graduate seminar titled "Late
German Romanticism" and a senior-
level course, "German Classical
Professors Hermann Weiss and
Mary Crichton will assume respon-
sibility for the courses, and will com-
plete evaluations of the students, said

HUBBS CAME to the University in
1959 from New York University,
where he earned a Ph.D. He began as
a German instructor but advanced to
department chairman in the 70s.
Hubbs is the author of numerous ar-
ticles on German literature and
history, and wrote four books. The
most recent in 1981 contained
documents and journals from Ger-
man soldiers fighting in the American
Revolution. He was working on a new
book at the time of his death, accor-

ding to Kyes.
Prof. Hubbs ranked among the top
people in his field in the U.S. and in
Germany," said Kyes.
Hubbs also was one of the Univer-
sity's top coordinators for the Junior
year in Freiburg program. The
program is jointly run by the Univer-
sity, University of Wisconsin,
Michigan State, and Wayne State

Israel okays U.S. spy probe
JERUSALEM - Israel will allow Justice Department officials to
question Israeli counter-terrorism chief Rafael Eitan and others suspec-
ted in the Jonathan Pollard spy case, a U.S. official said yesterday.
At the same time, Prime Minister Shimon Peres rejected suggestions
that Israeli agents routinely spy on the United States and said the Pollard
scandal was "the case of a lone spy, which contradicts our principles."
Peres said his government's apology to Washington Sunday ended the
threat to relations caused by the confusion about the case.
Peres told a closed meeting with visiting American Jewish leaders that
he coordinated the apology in advance with Secretary of State George
Shultz during a lengthy telephone conversation Sunday morining, Israeli
officials said.
Sakharov's wife lands in Italy
MILAN, Italy - Yelena Bonner, wife of Soviet dissident Andrei
Sakharov, landed in Milan yesterday night after telling reporters on her
flight from Moscow that she could not discuss her life in the Soviet Union
for fear of being exiled.
She was to receive medical treatment for eye and heart problems in
Italy before leaving for the United States and a reunion with her family in
Her son, Alexei Semyonov, and son-in-law, Efrem Yankelevich, ap-
proached the plane as she appeared at the door. Security ordered away
reporters and photographers.
Mrs. Bonner, 62, said she signed an agreement with Soviet authorities
that she would not give interviews or news conferences as a condition for
her three-month visa.
Earlier yesterday, Mrs. Bonner bid farewell to friends at the Moscow
ariport. She went through customs and passport checks by KBG border
officials at Sheremetevo Airport without problems.
Lung cancer down for white
men;increases for women
WASHINGTON - Deadly lung cancer is finally declining among white
American men after increasing for more than half a century, the
National Cancer Institute reported yesterday, crediting the good news to
millions of smokers giving up cigarettes.
However, officials said the generally fatal disease is still increasing
among women - with females' lung cancer deaths expected to exceed
those from breast cancer this year - and is continuing at a high level
among black men.
The institute also reported the five-year survival rate for American vic-
tims of all cancers has leveled off at just under 50 percent after rising
slightly in recent years.
Emphasizing the most encouraging news, officials said new cases of
lung cancer declined to 79.3 per 100,000 white men in 1983 from 82.7 the
previous year, a decrease they said comes two decades after men began
quitting smoking in substantial numbers.
"This proves that people can successfully reduce their cancer risk by
quitting smoking or not taking up smoking," said Dr. Vincent DeVita Jr.,
director of the federal institute. "The tragedy is that lung cancer rates
continue to increase among women."
Govt. predicts L.A. growth
WASHINGTON - Los Angeles will grow to be the nation's most
populous metropolitan area by the turn of the century, topping New York,
while San Francisco will surpass the rest of the nation in personal in-
come, new government projections show.
The study by the Commerce Department's Bureau of Economics
Analysis projects that the Los Angeles metropolitan area will grow to a
population of 8,870,000 by the year 2000.
That would make it the nation's most populous metropolitan area at the
turn of the century, surpassing New York, which is expected to have
8,433,000 people at that time. The analysis forecasts growth of 13.5 per-
cent in Los Angeles between 1983 and 2000, and of only 1.7 percent for New
Meanwhile, San Francisco residents will see their incomes climb 39.3
percent to $24,906 apiece, moving their region from second to first in the
nation. That growth would push the Bay Area past current income leader
Bridgeport, Conn., which is expected to show an increase of 25.6 percent,
to $23,088 by the year 2000.
The new projections released yesterday cover the 55 largest
metropolitan areas in the nation - those expected to have a population of
1 million or more in the year 2000.
U.S., Soviet youths hold
'summit', compare cultures
MINNEAPOLIS - Young singers and actors from the United States
and the Soviet Union sang duets and asked each other questions about
their countries while taping the hour-long program, a "children's sum-
mit" dedicated to the late Samantha Smith.
Miss Smith, the Maine teen-ager who visited the Soviet Union as an
unofficial peace envoy in 1983, was killed in a plane crash in August.

A Soviet rock group played yesterday in Moscow while a young
audience in Minneapolis, joining in on a satellite television "space
bridge," clapped and sang along in a prayer for world peace. "Talking to
each other ... we can create the world of peace we dream about," said
singer John Denver, who was host for the U.S. side of the international
Organizers said it was the first cultural exchange between the United
States and the Soviet Union since last month's Geneva summit between
President Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. Cultural accor-
ds had been severed since 1979, when Soviet troops invaded Afghanistan.
