March 29, 1961: A fellow gives  up his charitable pastime after going for a walk in Beverly Hills.

He left a mimeographed note on the windshields, telling the drivers what he had done and telling them that they could repay him by donating to the Foundation for the Junior Blind. After a jaunt in Beverly Hills, however, he was warned by the police that he was soliciting without a license, Paul Coates says.
