Deaths Elsewhere

Tania Long, 85, a pioneering female war correspondent for the New York Herald Tribune and New York Times who covered the London blitz and the Nuremberg trials, died Friday morning at her home in Ottawa. She took her life after suffering from a series of illnesses.

In London, she wrote of the poor during the blitz and of the bombing of the Hotel Savoy while she was living there. "When one hears bombs coming that close, there is not time to do anything," she wrote. "One hasn't time to be afraid; that comes later."

During the war, she married Raymond Daniell, the London bureau chief for the New York Times, and they became a journalistic team -- covering the Nuremberg trials and postwar Germany, and later running the newspaper's bureau in Ottawa. Mr. Daniell died in 1969.

Douglas C. Jones, 73, a novelist known for his books on the American frontier, died Aug. 30 in Fayetteville, Ark.
