DEATHS

SAUL PETT, 75, whose byline with the Associated Press was familiar to two generations of newspaper readers, died Sunday in McLean, Va., of cancer. He was credited with introducing to daily journalism a depth and scope previously considered the preserve of news magazines. His story in 1981 on the growth of the federal bureaucracy ran 8,570 words and won the 1982 Pulitzer Prize for feature writing.
