The Ray Charles story began sim
ply enough twenty-eight years ago
in Albany, Ga. Six years later the
Charles family was living in Greens
field, Fla. and the first tragedy
struck - young Kay was blinded,
completely and without hope for
The 6-year-old youngster was sent
to St. Augustine, Fla. where there
was a school for blind children and
there he grew up. Actually, Ray
Charles only got to grow up to the
age of fifteen before fate struck its
next hard blow. That year both his
parents died. Ray was blind, or
phaned and without a relative in
the world at fifteen.
It is at this point that the fan- j
tastie development ol the Itay
Charles career began. He left the
school and went out on his own.
He had acquired some musical
knowledge and right away he got
jobs playing around Florida with
a variety of bands. Within two
years he had an enviable reputa
tion as a sideman. Then at 17 the
intrepid youngster decided the
time had come to do something
on his own and he organized his
first trio with a bass and guitar to
, blend with his piano and his sax.
That trio got as far away from
its Florida beginnings as Seattle,
Wash., where Ray had what he de
scribes today as his biggest thrill1
in the business. The radio show that
the trio had was a regular one, and
they were the very first Negro act
to have a sponsored television show
in the northwest.
Although Ray Charles is dedicated
io his music and is seldom far from
it in his thoughts, he has a variety
of other interests. Like everything
he does, even his hobbies seem like
amazing feats in view of his handi
cap. He is an expert domino player
and almost unbeatable at cards

ilis sense of humor is completely

Another important sidelight .to
the Ray Charles career is his de
votion to spirituals. He listens to
gospel songs incessantly on rec
ord (he always travels with a sup
ply), on tape, (he collects them
on the spot in churches, etc.) and
while touring from date-to-date
on his car radio. Says Ray Char

Last night the Student Legislature
gave the Men's IDC $200 in its 1960
61 budget to aid its "best Dorm"
competition. The appropriation was
added to the $1980 already set aside
for the IDC.
The legislators specifically ear
marked the money to be spent as
follows: $100 to the winning dormi
tory; $30 each to the second and
third ranked dorms; one half of
the sum to be spent on dorm
itory improvements; on half to be
spent on entertainment.
In taking the action, the legisla
ture felt that it was giving the
dormitory men a specific goal
towards which tney could work. The
body recognized the limitations of
a tropny which will only gather
dust, and gave money as the incen
tive to spur competetion.
In other action of the budget, the
legislature took the UNC-Toronto
University exchange program com
pletely out of the appropriation. The
budget committee and the finance
committee had set an appropriation
of $180 up for the program.
Objections to this amount were
raised on the question of the true
representation of the student body
m such activities and on the ques
tion of the submission of the plans
for such programs to the legisla
ture before they are undertaken.
Also deleted from the budget be
cause cf planning limitations was
the item for the 1961 Senior Class.
The budget called for $1100, but
this sum was stricken with a re
quest that the 1961 graduating class,
through its president, present its
complete plans to trie legislature.
In this manner the legislature will
be able to approve or disapprove
the activities planned and the item
chosen for a Class Given Gift.
Also postponed, was the item for
Student Government Yackety Yack
space. The editor and the business
manager were asked to appear be
for the body Thursday night. At
this time the item will be consi
dered and certain questions in the
minds of the legislators will be
asked. Among these questions is
one concerning the twenty dollar
per page profit taken by the Yack
on Student Government space.

Last Minute Confusion Robs
Chessman Of Half-Hour Stay
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Time ran out for Caryl Chessman Mon
day in the chambers of a federal judge who said he would Have
granted him a 30-minute delay if there had been time.
Obviously irked over the hectic finale, U. S. District Judge
Louis E. Goodman lashed out at Chessman's lawyers George Davis
and Miss Rosalie Asher.
"I don't know what was wrong with those lawyers," Goodman
told newsmen. "One of them at least should have been here earlier."
The clock was nearing the 10 a.m. hour of execution in San
Quentin's gas chamber, 20 miles away, when Chessman's lawyers,
having waited out three adverse decisions in California Supreme
Court, rushed over to the Federal Building six blocks distant
to again petition in Federal Court.
They filed their petition at 9:55 a.m. and spent a few minutes
explaning the status of the case. Judge Goodman ordered a secre
tary. Celeste Hickey, to telephone the warden's office.
She took the number GL 4-1460 from a court clerk and dialed,
but left out the first 4. Perhaps 30 seconds elapsed before she put
in the call correctly.
By then the cyanide pellets had been dropped.
Wren the call from Judge Goodman's office came the prison told
the secretary "it's too late."
1960 Pulitzer Prize Winners Named
NEW YORK (AP) Allen Drury. a Washington newspaper cor
respondent for 17 years, today w3n the 1960 Pulitzer Prize in fic
tion with the first novel he ever wrote, "Advise And Consent." It
is a story of politics in the nation's capital.
The award for drama went to "Fiorello!" the first musical to
gain Pulitzer recognition since "South Pacific" in 1950.
The Los Angeles Times won the Gold Medal for Meritorious
Public Service for its successful newspaper campaign to cut down
narcotics smuggling into this country from Mexico.
Vance Trimble of the Scripps-Howard Newspaper alliance won
the 1960 prize for national reporting, as a result of an expose of
nepotism on congressional payrolls.
The accolade for international reporting went to A. M. Rosen
thal of the New York Times for perceptive and authoritative re
porting from Poland. The Polish government ousted him from the
country because of the stories that brought him the Pulitzer award.
Lenoir Chambers of the Norfolk Virginian-Pilot brought that
newspaper its second Pulitzer prize for editorial writing, with edi
torials on school segregation problems in Virginia. The newspaper
last was cited in that category in 1929. ,
There was no award this year in the newspaper cartoon field.
Kennedy, Nixon Vie In Indiana
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) A vote-drawing contest of national sig
nificance between Sen. John F. Kennedy and Vice President Rich
ard M. Nixon, plus nomination of Congressional, legislative and
county candidates, is expected to draw more than 700,000 voters in
Indiana's primary today.
The Presidential preference vote, in which neither the Massa
chusetts Democrat nor Nixon has major opposition, binds national
convention delegates for the first ballot only. But if Kennedy out
polls Nixon it will add considerable steam to his drive for the
Democratic Presidential nomination.
Nixon, alone in the field for the GOP nomination, might be fac
ed with renewed talk of a movement to draft someone else like
Gov. Nelson A- Rockefeller of New York if he doesn't make a
good showing against Kennedy.
South Korean Riots Pose Test
SEOUL (AP) New student demonstrations rolling up in the
south confronted South Korea's caretaker government with its first
possible test Monday.
Seoul was quiet, but it was recalled the demonstrations that un
seated President Syngman Rhee's regime also began in the south
and spread to the capital.
The demonstrators in the south central city of Taegu and the
southeast port of Pusan Monday defied martial law. They carried
placards reading: "Dissolve the National Assembly. This is the order
of the people."
The Assembly, still dominated by Rhee's Liberal Party, showed
no inclination to comply. First it elected an opposition Democrat
as speaker to succeed the late Lee- Ki Poong, Vice President-elect
who died in a suicide pact with all his fainilv.
