RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (AP) _ Antonio Callado, a novelist, playwright and critic of Brazil's former military regime, died Tuesday of prostate cancer. He was 80.
Callado's first novel, ``Assuncao de Salviano'' (The Assumption of Salviano), was published in 1954.
His 1967 novel ``Quarup,'' traced the political awakening of a priest in Brazil's backlands and criticized the generals who seized power in a 1964 coup.
In 1969, the military government suspended his political rights for 10 years. The dictatorship ended in 1985.
Others works include ``A Madona de Cedro'' (The Cedar Madonna,) ``Reflexos do Baile'' (Reflections of the Ball,) and a 1957 play ``Pedro Mico,'' about a Rio gangster, which became a film starring soccer legend Pele.

A. Richardson Goodlatte
NEW YORK (AP) _ A. Richardson Goodlatte, who helped clean up New York's graffiti-filled subway cars, died Saturday of bone cancer. He was 57.
Goodlatte was hired in 1984 as the Transit Authority's chief mechanical officer despite not having an engineering degree.
He ordered that graffiti be wiped off subway cars as they came in to the yards on the theory that graffiti artists would be dissuaded if they couldn't see their work. He was right.
Goodlatte, who retired last year, also increased maintenance and repairs, and significantly added to the reliability of service.
LONDON (AP) _ Cecil Lewis, whose career took him from flying ace to author to Oscar winner, died Monday. He was 98.
Lewis, a highly decorated veteran of World War I, wrote about his air wars in ``Sagittarius Rising'' and later helped the Chinese form an air force.
He became program manager in 1922 of what would eventually become the British Broadcasting Corp., then left in 1926 for film and theater work.
In 1938, he won an Academy Award for his screenplay adaptation of Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw's play ``Pygmalion.''
During World War II, Lewis rejoined the armed forces as a flying instructor and later embarked on several more careers _ sheep farming in South Africa, broadcasting for the United Nations in New York and a spell with British commercial television.
His autobiography ``Never Look Back'' _ one of 19 books he wrote _ was published in 1974 and filmed for television in 1978.
Louis Emanuel Martin
ORANGE, Calif. (AP) _ Louis Emanuel Martin, a former journalist, presidential adviser and deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, died Monday. He was 84. Martin had suffered a stroke in 1988.
He was deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee from 1960 to 1969 and helped found the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, which provided technical assistance to newly-elected black officials.
Martin also was a special assistant to the president during the Carter administration, working on public policy affecting minorities and women.
He came to Washington after serving as editor and publisher of the Michigan Chronicle in Detroit from 1936-47 and as editor of the Chicago Defender from 1947-59. From 1959-60 he was an editorial adviser to a chain of newspapers in Lagos, Nigeria.
After the DNC he became vice president and president of Sengstacke Newspapers of Chicago from 1969-78, where he later returned to write a weekly column.
He is survived by his wife, Gertrude, of Diamond Bar, Calif; a sister; five daughters; 11 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
PARIS (AP) _ Louis Pauwels, an outspoken conservative author who founded the weekly Figaro Magazine and ran it for 15 years, died of a heart attack early Tuesday. He was 76.
A harsh critic of Socialist President Francois Mitterrand, he was known as one of the leaders of the French ``New Right,'' supporters of liberal economic policies and less state control.
Pauwels began his journalism career in 1945, working at the newspaper Figaro's literary supplement and at Combat, a right-wing political magazine. He also founded the philosophical review Planet.
In the 1970s, he gained fame with an essay called ``The Morning of Magicians.'' He wrote 17 books, one of the more famous of which was ``Ten Years of Silence,'' published in 1990.
But his name will always be associated with the weekly Figaro Magazine, which he founded in 1978 and headed until 1993. It accompanies the daily Figaro each Saturday and is known for being even more conservative in its editorials, which Pauwels wrote, than the newspaper.
Survivors include his daughter, Marie-Claire.
