Ruth Miller, a former home economics teacher who loved art and took up painting in her 80s, died of congestive heart failure Thursday at Stella Maris Hospice. She was 103. Miss Miller spent her entire life at Medlicotes Venture in Parkton, a farm that had been in her family since 1843. A niece, Catherine Miller of Parkton, said her aunt was often kidded about her longevity. We used to laugh with her about it, said Mrs. Miller, who added that her aunt never drank or smoked. We told her it was because she didnt have a husband to worry her. She just said that she had good family genes.

SAUL BELLOW: A BIOGRAPHY OF THE IMAGINATION.Ruth Miller.St. Martin's.385 pages. $24.95.Is Nobel Prize-winning novelist Saul Bellow a great man, a luminary who can illuminate us? Or is he a slapstick comedian, a victim of his own shticks? Is he a genius or a jerk?Few American writers possess Saul Bellow's elegantly humane dignity, his personal grace. Few can match his world-recognized accomplishments, which seem to be a fulfillment of the fantasies of characters in his early novels -- or duplications in real life of the success of fictional creations like Henderson or Benn Crader.
