Edward K. "Duke" Ellington, now 73, took it nonchalantly when Columbia, the institution whose trustees administer Joseph Pulitzer's will, turned down the citation. Fate's being kind to me. Fate doesn't want,me to be too famous too young,," he said at the time." . The 1965 rejection of an award for the pianist-bandleader-composer stirred considerable controversy. Two of the three members of the music jury quit with a blast at the advisory board. The advisory board defended its action on the grounds that the jury had, after all, recommended no award in music be given, although it did recommend a special citation. The jury and its supporters countered by noting that 29 special citations had been awarded since 1938. Ellington could not bsj reached Sunday and a spokesman in New York said he was I on the road, doing one-night stands. WATER WEIGHT PROBLEM?
