It was a triumph of galactic proportions: Science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard had discarded the body that bound him to the physical universe and was off to the next phase of his spiritual exploration -- "on a planet a galaxy away." "Hip, hip, hurray!" thousands of Scientologists thundered inside the Hollywood Palladium, where they had just been told of this remarkable feat. "Hip, hip, hurray! Hip, hip, hurray!" they continued to chant, gazing at a large photograph of Hubbard, creator of their religion and author of the best-selling "Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health."

Hip, hip, hooray for Austria for standing up to Jewish propaganda in electing Kurt Waldheim. I hope now we will look into the criminal past of the leaders of the Jewish entity in Palestine as well. Will Menachem Begin be barred from entering the United States, too? ANDRE NICOLAI Carlsbad

Some comments on Nina J. Easton's July 30 article about the Ron Howard's film "Parenthood," which, according to the headline, "reflects the movies' latest discovery: kids and families." Brian Grazer, Howard's partner in Imagine Films, is quoted as saying: "Now being hip is being a responsible dad. . . . It's hip to have substance." Hip? He makes child rearing sound like the latest dance step. 'Hip to have substance" now? Does that mean that a short time ago it was "hip to be superficial"?

The season is officially over for Jerry Hairston Jr., the Dodgers' utility player extraordinaire. The Dodgers announced after Wednesday's game that Hairston will have surgery on his left hip sometime in the next two weeks. Hairston has been on the disabled list since Aug. 13 with what the Dodgers initially called an inflamed hip. He did not respond to an anti-inflammatory injection last week. Head trainer Sue Falsone said Tuesday that Hairston would likely be examined by a couple more hip specialists before the exact nature of his potential surgery was determined, but it would likely involve an arthroscopic procedure similar to what is more commonly performed on shoulders.
