8 Ct)C ClaiicnLClrSTt C-Frlday, November 12, 1976 Dorati Signs With Detroit Symphony tra, Dorati said, "I think the Detroit Symphony is today in better shape than the National Symphony was when I took it over." AMONG HIS predecessors in Detroit have been conductors Paul Paray, Sixten Erhling and, currently, Aldo Ceccato. Dorati had no specific plans about Detroit to announce Wednesday, but said he is going there today, at which time he will discuss some of his plans in detail. i'' the plans I have already agreed to with the National Symphony." It is widely generally agreed that Dorati, in his six seasons with the Natonal Symphony, has greatly improved the orchestra's performance standards and repertoire. In speaking of the Detroit orches- Washington Times Service WASHINGTON Antal Dorati Wednesday signed a three-year contract as music director of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Dorati, whose tenure as music director of the National Symphony Orchestra ends next spring, will begin his new post in the fall of 1977.

At that time he will become principal guest conductor of the National Symphony and also retain his present position as music director of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London.

I looked myself square in the face and realized I couldn't do everything." SO MEYER returned to the days of his youth, films featuring "women with giant bosoms and men with big square jaws" engaging in "outrageously humorous sex, like a football scrimmage," while still avoiding what he calls "the ultimate shot." Meyer also manages to avoid everything except the merest semblance of a plot.

With the Ice Vanities, the Osmond Brothers and guest stars: MARIE 07:00 PM Wewsl6 By KENNETH TURAN Washington Times Service WASHINGTON "My films." says Russ Meyer, thinking it through, searching for just the right image, "are like a reptile you beat with a club. You think you've killed it, but then you turn around and it gets you on the ankle." Think of Russ Meyer as the 58-million-dollar man. His 27 films have earned that much since the first, "The Immoral Mr.

Teas," started America's sexual new wave back in 1959. A whole generation grew up on his soft-core sexual fantasies, skin epics like "Lorna," "Finders Keepers, Lovers Weepers," and "Vixen." The Wall Street Journal called him "King Leer" and the Museum of Modern Art is about to show his "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" for the fourth time. A LOT HAS happened to sexploitation films since Meyer pioneered the genre. Hard-core explicitness replaced his brand of dreams, Linda Lovelace became the people's choice, but Russ Meyer has refused to fade away. With film No.

28, "Up," the old soldier, much to his surprise, has found himself practically an American institution. "I'm in the mainstream of exhibition now," he says, more than pleased. "Only two films are making any money in the Southwest, mine and 'Marathon In Houston it's playing in a cinerama theater, that's never happened before. And who's In it? Nobody knows. That's the satisfaction, to make a film without big names and slug it out toe-to-toe with the majors." Age 54, Meyer, is a mellow, good-humored man, looking, the critic John Simon once wrote, like "a former prize fighter now operating a successful chain of South American brothels." TOURING with Uschi Digard, formerly one of his stars and now associate producer of "Up," he seems relaxed about everything, not even getting too upset when the Maryland Board of Censors rejected "Up" in toto as too hot to handle.

"Well, it aroused me when I shot it," he admits cheerfully. "We had the whole crew standing around in a pool of saliva. Sure it appeals to prurient interest. Why not appeal to prurient interest?" This peace of mind has come to Meyer after a three- or four-year period when things were not breaking his way, when one of his films was canceled and two others, "Seven Minutes" and betrayed him at the box office. "Those years were very confusing to me," he admits.
