* Dr. George N. Marshall,77, a retired leader in the Unitarian Universalist Association, died Feb. 15 of heart failure in Chapel Hill, N.C. From 1960 to 1985, Dr. Marshall was the minister of the world's largest and most unconventional Unitarian Universalist body, the Church of the Larger Fellowship, which operates without a central sanctuary or congregation. An officer in his denomination, Dr. Marshall headed an American Unitarian Association board that planned the merger with the Universalist Church. He wrote 10 books on religious and social themes, including two on his longtime friend, Albert Schweitzer, the African missionary.

* Carl Stone, 52, one of the most consistently accurate public opinion pollsters in the Caribbean, died at his Kingston, Jamaica, home Friday of lymph cancer. He accurately predicted the results of all national and local elections in Jamaica since 1972. The government on Tuesday awarded Mr. Stone the Order of Merit, the nation's third highest honor, for his "distinguished contribution to the field of political sociology." He was a professor at the University of the West Indies in Mona, Jamaica, a newspaper columnist and a market researcher. He earned his doctorate from Michigan University and wrote four books. Prime Minister P. J. Patterson said of Mr. Stone: "He leaves a void that will be very hard to fill." Mr. Stone is survived by his mother, Flossie; his wife, Rosemarie; a son; and a daughter.
