Gladys Hasty Carroll, 94, a writer known for her portrayals of rural life in Maine in the early 20th century, died yesterday in South Berwick, Maine. Her most famous work, the 1933 best-seller "As the Earth Turns," was a Pulitzer Prize nominee that inspired a Hollywood production the following year.

Lila Hotz Luce Tyng, 100, the first wife of Time Inc. founder Henry R. Luce and a leader of New York's social and philanthropic circles, died Wednesday in Gladstone, N.J. She married Mr. Luce in 1923 and they divorced in 1935.

Jim "Jug" Jackson, 81, hereditary chief and longtime leader of the Quinault Indian Nation, was found dead Friday in Taholah, Wash. Mr. Jackson, a logger, shake mill operator and for more than 20 years the chairman of the Olympic Peninsula tribe, was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at his home, said tribal President Pearl Capoeman-Baller, and Joe DeLaCruz, who followed Jackson as president from 1972 to 1994.

Phil Fourney, 69, a former longtime newspaper owner, died Saturday of complications from diabetes in Charleston, W.Va. He was owner for more than 33 years of Star Printing and Publishing Co., which published the Ravenswood News, before selling the company in 1988.

Alfonso Sanchez Madariaga, 94, a founder of Mexico's dominant labor movement, died Saturday of a heart attack in Mexico City.

He was one of the "five wolf cubs," young labor leaders who split with the then-dominant labor federation in 1929 and laid the groundwork for what became the Mexican Labor Confederation, or CTM. The CTM still dominates Mexico's labor movement today.
