But not for the same reason you or I might dislike the chilly stuff. Collins, a radio singer and pianist In blind. Most of the time he makes his way around town nicely without the help of seelng-eye dog or the white cane of the unseeing. His ears are ihis guides. Simply by snapping his fingers, listening to the changing echoes of sound in the street or bending «n ear to the clicking of his leather heels, Collins says he can sense the presence of obstacles nearby. But snow deadens sounds or makes them trickier to analyze. Collins, completely sightless for 33 of his 38 years, says he knows if an automobile Is parked at the curb; when he is approaching a telephone pole or a wall or another pedestrian. Collins helped earn his way to a political science degree »t Idaho University by tuning pianos. For 11 years he sang in Seattle and Hollywood, with dance bands and ..then over the air. \f Collins now has a five-a-wcck •how—"Chuck Collins Calling"—ot ftongs and patter over station KOA and KMYR.
