(Studio) Inflation doesn't miss ballet companies
REPORTER: Roger Mudd

(San Francisco, California) San Francisco ballet broke, another victim of galloping inflation. Talented dancers take to streets and performing on street corners. Ballet needs $1/2 million to even begin season. Ballerinas' costume costs soar, so they're now out on streets soliciting funds to begin new season. [Ballerina Linda MEYER - says dancers can't believe work of past year won't be seen by audiences. If debts can't be paid she'll have to hang up her tutu.]
