Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETH3RIDGE HERALD Saturday, December 21. 1974 Helpers used scanty costumes Santa not guilty of WASHINGTON (AP) Some staffers in the United States department of health, education and welfare com- plained of "sexploitation" when two of Santa's helpers strolled the corridors in scan- ty costumes. But a meeting yesterday found Santa not guilty of the charge. The Santa was Russell Roberts, a freedom of infor- mation officer, who for seven years has collected about 800 a year and mounds of toys, clothing and canned food for needy families in Washington's slums. This season Julie FVasner and Linda Hudock volunteered to help. Roberts paid for the costumes they selected: miniskirt length red suits with white trim and red leotards to match. The department has a large contingent of feminists, and "they felt I was using scantily clad women to entice men to Roberts said. They demanded that the girls cover up, because mini- skirt suits degraded all female workers and reduced their status to the level of "chicks." They also suggested that Roberts wear a miniskirt himself. "If I thought it would put another in the pot, I'd come in he retorted. He won the day.

The air- conditioning is erratic. And the whole enter- prise is substantially in the red. But Sydneysiders, as the people who live here are called, remain es- ctatic about the Sydney Opera House, one year aid and among the most talked-about arts centres in the world. The bright white building with its sail- like roofs rising above Sydney means there's no space for a parking lot around presented grand opera, a hair-dressing competition, rock concerts and symphony orchestras in the last year. Guided tours of the building are booked up months in advance, and Sydney cultural circles are convinced that the house attracts people who have never attend- ed musical and theatri.cal events before. More than million to date have at- tended performances, concerts, tours and other events in the opera house. During a 17-performance opera festival in January all seats were on a non- subscription basis and all were sold out. Practical problems however, with the building, which opened Sept. 28, 1973, with the Australian Opera's per- formance of Pro- kofiev's War and Peace. Some, like the air condi- tioning gremlins, will be cleared up soon but others are more serious. "One of the worst problems is the orchestra pit in the op- era general manager Frank Barnes said in an interview. "It now accommodates about 60 players, but you need 80 to 90 for a bigscale opera like Aida." The proscenium open- ing in the Opera Theatre is only 40 feet, which also causes problems for operas with big casts. Aida will be presented in January and because of the pit difficulty the opera will have to be in the Main Hall. That makes the Main Hall, unavailable for its usual concert events.
