* Charles Moore, 68, a leading figure in postmodern architecture, died of a heart attack Thursday in Austin, Texas. He argued against the abstract quality of modern architecture, with its reliance on austere geometric forms. Instead, he insisted that buildings reflect their setting and their purpose. At Sea Ranch, a resort along the Pacific Coast, he created pitched-roof, redwood clad houses that resembled an outcrop of the cliffside. He won the American Institute of Architects' highest honor in 1991. He was chairman of the architecture department at the University of Texas at Austin. He was also a former chairman of architecture at Yale and the University of California at Berkley.

* Richard Talbot Stout, 62, a former Newsweek correspondent and veteran political journalist, died Wednesday of a heart attack in Washington. He was a Washington correspondent for Newsweek from 1964 to 1973. He later worked as a free-lance writer, editor and public affairs consultant. He had been a journalism professor at the American University School of Communications. He was co-author of the book "People," an account of the antiwar movement and the 1968 Democratic

presidential campaign of Sen. Eugene McCarthy.
