Percy Ray Celebrates 89th Birthday, Tells Of Early Delta Life Roland Kuhn INDIANOLA -- Percy Ray, one of Indianola's prominent senior citizens, celebrated his S9th sirthday on July 18lh. He was the honored guest at a family dinner. The Ray Ijome was artistically decorated, the work of devoted friends. In the den yellow gladioli and yellow snapdragons predominated. In the living reom summer flowers, and centering the dining table, overlaid with an imported cut-work linen cloth, were pink roses in a silver con- aincr. Enjoying the occasion with Mr. Ray and Mrs. Ray were Mr. nnd Mrs. William Montgomery, Mr. and Mrs. Charlie Montgomery and children Eller and Andrew, Mr. and Mrs. Bill Montgomery, all of Carrclllon; Mrs. Codie Brown, Miss Florence Ray, Mrs. ---- Charles Parduc, and Dr. and larles Ray and children Charles Jr., Belly, and Gill all of Greenwood; Mrs. Myrtle Freeman and Mrs, Catherine Tulbcrl of Memphis. Mr. Ray, a native ot Carrollton and a retired Sunflower County plonler, received his first experience in his early 20' s as farmer on a 2200 acre plantation his falher owned in Lcflore County. After successfully managing his father's plantation for a num bcr of years, in 19Wj he bought W o o d b u r n Plantation containing 4613 acres, located south o] Indianola on the Sunflower River. Mr. Ray tells of his coming to For 38 years Mr. Ray shipped Kis cotton and cotton seed to Vicksburg by boat which landed at the old boat house still standing on the Sunflower River in Front of the house, now owned by Mr. and Mrs. Watson Brewer. "My! Look al that- wood burn," an exclamation of someone when 3,000 acres of limber on the place were a f l a m e many years ago gave the plantation the name "Woodburn." Mr. Ray tells of the huge general store on Woodburn where everything from a pin to a bar of soap to most househok necessities, and 500T pounds o! meat a month, were handled Tiie big barn could house 2M head of mules, and containec storage for 25.000 bales of hay. When Mr. Ray retired in 1! he had !HO tenant families on his place. He says that farming has changed so much in recent years that he is glad to be out of the business. Walking horses Mr. Ray's liobby and fo: many years he exhibited them at Shelbyville, Tennessee. Ho is an active member of Ihe First Baptist Church and is a Life Time Deacon. Mrs. Earner To Head Wives' Club Bui this room springs a new set )! surprises beyond the fact that .he floor is vinyl, already an accepted high fashion point, and the use of fabric-soft leather in fabric- ailored ways. Fabric is entirely absent from th« windows, but it covers a wall ust out of view as well as some of the furniture -- and it makes :he unique rug. Wood walls, for all the ele- jance of the room, are not the mellow and shining kind. These ,valls have been scorched to produce a grainy, darkened rough-; ness and dullness. | The room was designed by Me- i laine Kalians, one of a series by members of the American Instil-1 ute of Decorators for New York's' handsome Grade Towers. Striking use of materials is a high point of their design, .and certainly, this one is outstanding. It owes much of its character to the unusual contrast of the materials, too -- j the beautiful antique woods of a chest and (able againsl Ihe scorched wood walls, the satiny leather with (he texture of the fabric -both on the sofa -- and the rich pallerning of (he rug against the sleek vinyl floor, Ihe change from the wood wall to more of the fabric. Only the one fabric is used everywhere, on a pair of chairs not shown, on the sofa, on a wall and for the rug. It's a luxurious example of returning traditional pattern from an American Legacy series in practical cotton. For the rug, the fabric is cut in strips. The strips, reversing directions, ed at the ends wilh wool fringe. The rug has a sateen lining for extra strength and is laid over a conventional rug pod to add depth. The pair of chairs covered in the fabric have deep red. O t h e r colors in the room are golden olive, fxuge am b r o w n with shock accen touches of purple. Shades are hung at the windows to pull up from the bottom instead of down from the top. (Fabric by Greeff^ Dr. and Mrs. George A.
