NAMES IN THE NEWS : Taylor May Leave Hospital in June

From Times staff and wire service reports

Elizabeth Taylor, recovering from a near-fatal bout of pneumonia, may be able to leave the hospital early next month, her doctor says.

Dr. Michael Roth said Wednesday the 58-year-old actress is significantly improved and in good spirits in her seventh week of hospitalization.

Taylor was placed on a respirator last month, and doctors said she was near death. She rallied, however, and was moved from the intensive care unit to a fourth-floor hospital suite early this month.
