Petite Singer Finds Wardrobes a Problem Landmark to Go The historic Hogan Hotel, formerly the Walcafield, Kan., Hotel, will be torn down to make way for waters of the Milford Reservoir. The hotel, built in 1905, is said to have the largest covered porch area of any hotel in Kansas. The three-story frame structure was purchased in 1950 by Mrs. J. Abbia Clark, who had intended to tear it down and sell the lumber, but later remodeled the building 'into 40 rooms and apartments which the 88-year-old proprietor rents. (AP Photo) Recording Not Easiest Thing In the World, Soprano Says By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newsftatures Writer Evory girl wants to look pretty and attractive, but if she is petite, that goal may be difficult to reach, says vivaeipus singer, Pat Suzuki. "Clothes that are available for small women are absolutely ridiculous. The fabrics are terrible. Design and workmanship are discouraging. You've got to spend a lot for something that looks good and fits well," says Pat a mere 4 feet 11. But where does that lcav« the average little girl who wants to look as well dressed as her coworkers? "If you must go into high priced clothes, it pays to have them made, I think," Pat says. By MARY CAMPBELL AP Newsfeaturei Writer "Recording is not the easiest filing in the world." says soprano Eileen Farrcll, sniilng at her understatement. "You can make two or tlitve (akes for a record. In a performance, you do it and It is over with. In a recording session you listen back. You say to yourself, 'I know I can make It bol- ter. I should do it differently. 1 "Ten to one some student — and I've done this myself — is going to listen to that record and say. 'Where does she breathe?' 'Oh, ho, she made a mistake.' So you have to be pretty sure of what you're doing. Ami it's hard work." Miss Farr°l'i's recording sessions last three hours ear 1 ! and she prefers to record one day, rest a day nnd record again. Usually, she says, she can complete nn LP in two sessions but sometimes she has needed three "When I record, I save the tieavior arias for last, so I don't tlrn mv vnirp at the beginnoni;. Once you've given full voice, it's hard to come down, especially recording. "The 'Puccini Arias' album has the big Turandot' aria in it. I'd never done it before. I saved it to the end of the recording session, and I said, 'I can't possibly do this over again, so nobody j scratch a chair." I guess I scar| cd them into silence because it i was done in one lake." ! Her newest album, not yet released by Columbia, is "Eileen Farrcll Sings' Kronen and Kalian Art Songs." Her first record, cut 20 years ago, bst'oiv LP's, is an album of Irish snims- "I dnn't even have it myself," -Miss Farrel says, "but 1 think my mother has one."

She spent six yqars on a rnJio show, singing every kind tif music. Now, after radio, opera, concerts, records ^nJ TV appea'-an- ccs, Miss Parrel! s->ys she occasionally thinks about Broadway. "But it's a little too hectic. U'd be fun to do a musical comedy. But at the Met you don't sing a major role every night. I thin!: I'd like to do a straight dramatic part rather than singing."

(AP) - Investigators sought today to track down saboteurs who dynamited a 9l-car freight train and a work train derrick of the strike- harassed Florida East Coast Railway. No one was injured in the blasts Sunday—10 miles apart— which caused damage estimated by W.L. Thornton, the carrier's chief operating oflcer, at more than $250,000. 'It was definitely sabotage," Thornton said. 'I am not implying the unions are to blame. No lone knows at this tim« who did |this." George Leighty, chief negotiator for the 11 striking unions, said "we know absolutely nothing about it," He said union members had been warned not to resort to violence. The sabotage was the worst directed against the 577-mile railroad, which operates between Jacksonville and Florida City, south of Miami, since the pononerating unions struck Jan. 23, 1963. Railroad officials said there have been 146 incidents.

The design- j er sends the clothes to Pat in I New York, who returns what she' doesn't like. "Short «'rls must keep clothes . simple, feminine and neat. You ' don't want fuss and frills.

"I most have fresh strong clothes all the time for heavy wear. Costumes wear out from tension and performance energy. That's why they must be built i for maximum stress with inner linings. In Europe tailors allow j for pressure points even in street clothes. English suits are cut poorly but have fantastic reinforcement, but sometimes I think American clothes are geared to obsolescence, they wear out so fast," she says. She wears slacks and shell tops ; when she performs because the j outfit gives her a sense of freedom. She was born on a farm in; Cressey, California and attended i Page 2A finnlcn f IIv Wednesday, Feb. 12, 1964 San Francisco College and San •lose College. She came to New York originally to work her way to Europe but got a job with the road company of "Teahouse of the August Moon," her first stage role. Her looks are a delightful Japanese American. On the street she \years gold, aqua and camel colors. For evening she likes hot pink and turquoise and good clear colors. She avoids black unless it is velvet because it makes her tan skin look muddy. "I don't like clothes to attract too much attention, but I don't believe in being mousey, either," she says.
