Deaths Elsewhere

Millicent Hearst Boudjakdji, 63, president of the William Randolph Hearst Foundation and granddaughter of publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst, died of cancer Wednesday in Los Angeles.

She came from a long line of publishers and philanthropists, and had developed the foundation's two main programs - one supporting journalism education for college students, the other fostering government studies for high school students, including a week in Washington.

She covered the United Nations for Hearst Headline News before her 1964 marriage to Raouf Boudjakdji, Algerian ambassador to the United Nations. They had four children.

Forbes magazine listed Mrs. Boudjakdji as the 256th richest person in America this year, with a net worth of $900 million.

Thomas J. Murray, 87, the cheery, coffee-drinking GI who was depicted on popular posters urging home-front rationing during World War II, died Wednesday in Troy, N.Y., of Parkinson's disease.

In 1943, the Office of War Information selected the veteran to pose for illustrations that were part of its campaign to gain support for the war effort.
