UNIFAX Record Hall of Fame Set Up NEW YORK (UPI) - The National Academy of Recording Arts land Sciences (NARAS) announced Monday it has established a Hall of Fame in the field of phonograph records. Bill Lowery, the academy's newly elected national president, likened the concept to the halls of fame in football and baseball. He said the NARAS Hall of Fame would "honor recordings of lasting, qualitative or historical significance." "The academy has, during the past 15 years, given recognition through its Gram­ my awards to all sorts of current recordings in the various creative fields," Lowery said. "However, our heritage is so rich and runs so deep that it is the feeling of our national trustees, that those great and lasting contributions, released before the inception of the Grammy wards in 1958, centaihly should also receive their rightful recognition." The academy announcement said it would put its venture into motion ifchis month with selection by its trustees of a 30- -rrtan nominating committee to make the initial nominations.

The Lively Arts Jay's story — his early triumphs, his fall and now his comeback - is as dramatic as anything you will see on any screen, it is the.come* back, that difficult but rewarding period he's now going through, which is the most heart-warming. When he was still in his 20s, in the mid-1950s, he was a big star in Hollywood. He played Caligula in "The Robe," with Jean Simmons and Richard Burton, and repeated the role in "Demetrius and the Gladiators." He had big parts in a string of Twentieth Century- Fox films. "PERHAPS IT WAS a case of too much too soon," he says now. Whatever the reason, he couldn't cope with all the glory coming his way. He had a Bel Air mansion and a Rolls but time was hanging heavy on his hands. Being a stage-trained actor, he didn't know what to do with himself between pictures. He began experiments with drugs — nothing heavy, he insists, just pot and pills. He was arrested for possession of narcotics. Everything went — the mansion, the car, all bis money and his career. His parents died, too. He couldn't get a job. Even after his conviction was reversed it was tough. "Those were the bad years," he says. "I got married and we lived in New York. I worked as a fry cook and I cleaned zoo cages. We were poor. We were often hungry." WHEN HE CAME back to California, he was re-arrested on a technicality. This time, often lectures on the subject of drugs and what harm they can do to a person. "I think," he says, "that my best era and my best roles are still ahead. I'm in my 401 now, and better parts are written for 40 -year-oWs (hah for fryear-okk How many Caligula* are written?" In prison, they used to say "Mali, Caesar."

"I FOUND THE industry forgiving," he says. "People like Bette Davis, Mike Connors and Greer Garson rallied to my support." He began his comeback with a role on Mannlx, then did two other guest appearances on the same show. He began working regularly on TV in many shows. His first movie role since his release Was with Bette Davis in "Bunny O'Hare." He did a bit with Woody Allien in "Everything Ycu Always Wanted To Know About Sex," has a good role in the upcoming "Deadly Honeymoon" and stars in the current release, "This Is a Hijack." "It was the combination of the love of a good woman," ho says, referring to his wife, Pauline, "and my own deterr mination that is enabling me lo overcome. Now I feel I may be a better man because of going through all those troubles." HIS SON, Jay Paul, who is now 12, is now violent on the subject of drugs.
