Arthur Getz, 82, an artist whose depictions of life in and around New York City appeared 210 times on the cover of the New Yorker, died of a stroke Friday in New York.

He sold his first cover to the magazine in 1936. A stylized drawing of sailboats superimposed on a map of the East Coast, it was published on July 23, 1938.

It wasn't uncommon for Mr. Getz to have eight or nine covers published each year. His last cover ran Aug. 29, 1988.

His illustrations also appeared in other magazines, including Esquire and the New Republic. He also painted murals in several post offices, taught painting and wrote and illustrated children's books.

Luther Eubanks, 78, a retired federal judge who projected his homespun manner in the courtroom, using phrases such as "Oh, hellfire" to rebuke lawyers when he felt his time was being wasted, died of cancer Sunday in Oklahoma City, Okla.

Alice Stanley Acheson, 100, the widow of former Secretary of State Dean Acheson, died Friday in Washington. Mrs. Acheson's husband, who died in 1971, served in the Truman administration. Known as a serious painter before marrying, Mrs. Acheson exhibited oils and watercolors at museums in Washington and elsewhere for decades.
