Deaths Elsewhere

TOM CARVEL, 84, the former chairman of the Carvel chain of 700 ice cream stores, was found dead Sunday at his home in Pine Plains, N.Y. His gravel-voiced narration on television and radio commercials for his products made him familiar to millions. Born Thomas Andreas Carvelas in Athanassos, Greece, he came to the United States as a child. In 1934, he borrowed $15 from his future wife, loaded a truck with ice cream and started a business that, 55 years later, he sold to an investment corporation for more than $80-million. TERESA de FRANCISCI, 92, who was the model for Miss Liberty on the Peace Dollar of 1921, died Saturday in New York City of respiratory failure. Mrs. de Francisci's stylized portrait as Miss Liberty appeared on the silver dollar issued to mark the return of peace at the end of World War I. The portrait was the work of her husband, Anthony, a sculptor and the creator of many medals. The coin is now a collector's item.

DANIEL GUILET, 91, a violinist who was concertmaster of the NBC Symphony Orchestra under Arturo Toscanini and a founding member of the Beaux Arts Trio, the most prominent trio in the chamber-music world, died Oct. 14 in New York City of a cerebral hemorrhage.
