BERYL DENZER HINES, 84 Cold War journalist

Beryl Denzer Hines, a Cold War journalist who landed the first U.S. television interview with Soviet Foreign Minister Vyacheslav Molotov among other scoops, died July 30 at a Washington nursing home of complications from cancer.

As an associate producer for the CBS program Face the Nation from 1954 to 1957, Ms. Hines sometimes went to great lengths to get guests.

In 1955, she spent the night outside Mr. Molotov's stateroom aboard a liner outside New York Harbor, where, according to Newsweek magazine, "she finally got a Tass correspondent to translate a final CBS invitation to Molotov" for the interview.
