He's not an oldie but goody. He wasn't here so long ago. And he was only gone about a year. He's just been checking out his situation and his conscience. The first single record he ever released became a big hit. "Ain't No Sunshine (when you're gone)" became a gold record and won a 1972 Grammy Award as best rhythm 'n' blues song for Withers, who also wrote it. More hits followed, "Grandma's Hands," Lean on Me" and "Use Me." Withers traveled steadily, performing, for two years. Some people take to that kind of happening in their lives without a second thought. Others think a lot about the changes they're going through. Withers is one of the thinkers. His background is fairly unusual for a recording artist. He's 36 now and he didn't go into music until he was 33. He had been born in Slab Fork, W. Va., youngest of six children. "The coal mining communities have some funny names. It was probably a fork in a vein of coal or something." Then he spent nine years in the Navy, where a speech therapist cleared up his childhood stutter. "Most of the time spent in the military was very lonely. Everybody has given their daughters instructions to leave military men alone. And you don't have very much money." Then came five years working in a factory. "You meet people there all with the same level of taste. The slick people don't work in factories. They get around that," Withers hadn't even been listening to music during most of that time. If he went where it was playing in the background, he more or less ignored it. Then, he suddenly began to listen and "I saw that the people who were making music got attention from the ladies. They never seemed to be socially left out. You don't go into an attention-getting situation unless you want attention." He met Booker T. Jones and negotiated a contract with Sussex Records, where he has remained. At first it was a subsidiary of Buddah; now it has gone' independent. LPs are "Just as I Am," "Still Bill," "Live at Carnegie Hall" and '"Justments." His newest single is "You." He usually writes songs, he says, when he is coming up from an emotional setback or nostalgic or feeling lonely. The kind of person he is, Withers explains, is idealistic, somewhat sentimental, religious. About his late mother, he says, "She never let me down. She wanted me to be a gentleman, a gentleman for real, even when you don't have to be. No matter what I did, she accepted me. She's the last person I'm sure of that about. A lot of times I had friends because I sold records. You have to earn the time people spend with you in this business." Withers experienced some shocks, disillusionments and disappointments after he be* LOWER PRICK BILL WITHERS came a performer. "I was socially naive coming into this business. New words started coming into my life — like handsome. Show business men and women are much bolder than a bunch of factory workers. It's easy for the man in the street to say he would never do this and that; if he had the opportunity he would probably faint. Let him walk out of a dressing room and have one of the most gorgeous ladies he has ever seen invite him home with her. Put him in a room where everybody is taking dope and he wants to be 'with it.' "The hardest thing for a conventionally brought-up male to adjust to is that it is not really the way they told you it was. You're not going to find that innocence they told you to look for and protect. "You can make life miserable for those around you by giving lectures. You can go the other way and make rationalizations for yourself that the world is just changing and you have to go along with it. I hope it doesn't become necessary for me to malce any more rationalizations than I have already made. It doesn't ease anything for me. "When I was taking time off I was looking for an emotional and moral balance. It was hard for me to find because I was in a marriage that wasn't working. Coming from a basic reli- g i o u s situation, marriages work. You go ahead and make it work. It was a big disappointment to me; I still haven't figured it out. For a while I was protecting my ego. I said it doesn't make any difference and I feel relieved that the problems that were there are not there any more. Neither are the pleasures. I thought, with me not getting married until I was 34, it would last, and it didn't last a year and a half. "I miss romance. It was very important to me, and it is gone. Probably one of the reasons I got married is that I wanted romance. I'm not tough emotionally. Four seek House seat LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Four persons, including the widow of state Rep. Kirby Meacham of Monroe, have begun camp- aining for the Democratic nomination for Meachman's seat. A special convention of six persons from Monroe County and two from East Arkansas County will choose a successor to Meacham Aug. 29 at the Monroe County Courthouse at Clarendon. Craig Campbell, executive secretary of the Democratic State Committee, said Wednesday that the Arkanas County Democratic Committee will meet this week to name the two delegates. The Monroe County Democratic Committee chose six delegates Wednesday and six alternates. Campbell said the state party office had arrived at the allot- ment of two delegates by computing the ratio of Democratic votes in the five East Arkansas County townships in the 1972 general election. He said then the same ratio was applied to the number of delegates from the county the 1972 state convention . Mrs. Shirley Meacham has .said she is interested in the position. Three other persons also have been mentioned for the position. They are Alton P. Hill of Clarendonn, Jack T. George of Cross Roads and Berry Weaver of Briskley. Meacham died after the filing deadline for the primaries. He was unopposed. There was no Republican candidate which means that the person chosen at the Democratic convention will be the only name on the general election ballot. Bias suit accuses Aetna LITTLE ROCK (AP) -The federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission joined forces Wednesday with two Little Rock women who had filed suit here charging Aetna Life and Casualty Co. with sex discrimination in employment. The EEOC intervened in that suit and filed its own complaint against Aetna. The federal commission charged the firm with intentionally engaging in unlawful employment practices at their Little R*ock facilities in violation of the Civil Rights Ad The alleged unlawful employment practices include discriminating against females by denying them employment benefits for absences due to pregnancy, the federal commission said. Carolyn Armbrust and Sheryll Lipscomb filed suit last year. The women charged that they had asked to take advantage ot the company's salary continuation program while ab- bem from work due to preg- nanc> and that their request was denied.
