Hilde Spiel, 79, an author who made England her second home after fleeing Austria to escape the Nazis, died Thursday at her home in Vienna, Austria, after a long illness. Most her work was written in German, but her novel "The Darkened Room" was published in 1961 in English.

Dorsha Hayes, 93, a dancer and writer, died Tuesday at Doctors Hospital in Manhattan of complications after a stroke.

A student of Ruth St. Denis, she also appeared with the Fokine Ballet and with Fred and Adele Astaire in "The Passing Show of 1918." In 1924, she and her husband, Paul Hayes, who died in 1969, founded the Theater of the Dance, whose productions combined dance and music with poetry by such authors as T. S. Eliot and William Butler Yeats.
