Evelyn Danzig Levine,94, co-author of the 1950s standard "Scarlet Ribbons" popularized by Harry Belafonte and recorded by Sinead O'Connor, the Kingston Trio and others, died Friday in Los Angeles.

She collaborated with lyricist Jack Segal to produce many songs, including "Where I May Live With My Love," recorded by Tommy Edwards; "The Wonder of Wonderful You," recorded by Brock Peters; "When a Warmhearted Woman Loves a Coldhearted Man" for Dinah Shore; and "Midnight in Manhattan."

But "Scarlet Ribbons" was their biggest hit. Joan Baez, Wayne Newton, Danny Thomas and Mary O'Hara also were among those to record it.

Eric Ridder,78, a gold-medal winning Olympic yachtsman and former publisher of the Journal of Commerce & Commercial, died of pneumonia July 23 in Locust Valley, N.Y. He was publisher of the Journal of Commerce from 1956 to 1985 and was its general manager from 1946 to 1956.
