At the opening ceremony of the Los Angeles Summer Olympics, supermarket checker Vicki McClure brought 92,000 people in the Coliseum to their feet, joining her in singing "Reach Out and Touch Somebody's Hand." McClure, now 34, won't be at the opening of the Olympics in Seoul this month. Instead, she will be watching on television. She hasn't found fame and fortune, but she says she doesn't mind.

Daddy's Money is the cryptic name of a vocal group that has been working around town for the last year or two. Last week at Bon Appetit, a pleasant restaurant in Westwood, the band outnumbered the singers 5 to 3, not always to the advantage of the latter. Bobbi White, Vicki McClure and Amy Weston blend their voices in a style that harks back to the days of the Andrews Sisters.

One danger female vocal groups face is that if they're not careful in their song selection, they end up sounding either like the Andrews Sisters or the Supremes. Daddy's Money, a trio of Amy Weston, Dee Dee Bellson and Vicki McClure, has successfully avoided that danger by providing such an eclectic mix and wide range of styles as to have almost no identity. Slowly, however, the trio is building its own.

The Music Center's first "US Sprint WinterFest," a festive, two-week celebration that transforms the Plaza into a sparkling fantasy of holiday lights, strolling carolers, mimes and musicians, received an appropriate inauguration Tuesday night in a soaring tribute to Los Angeles' most indigenous forms of music--film scoring, jazz and pop. With five award-winning film composers and an 80-piece orchestra on hand, the movie connection was appropriately dominant.

On a stage crowded with Olympic Gold Medal decathletes--Rafer Johnson, Milt Campbell, Bob Mathias, Bruce Jenner and Bill Toomey--one athlete stood out. Her name was Pam Biery, and she was special. No athlete was prouder, more touched by the dignity of participation than swimmer Biery, one of a group of Special Olympians from Pasadena who signed and sang the National Anthem, opening the California Special Olympics 20th anniversary dinner Saturday night.

That well-worn phrase, if at first you don't succeed . . . is certainly true in social circles, where the success of one party can dim the memory of a previous flop. Such was the case with the Music Center's WinterFest kickoff Tuesday night at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, a program that included entertainment on the Music Center Plaza, a two-hour concert and a post-concert dinner for those who paid $250 a ticket. The event was partially underwritten by US Spring Communications Co.

It's not all golf and tennis at Palm Desert. The first anniversary of the $22-million McCallum Theatre for the Performing Arts at the Bob Hope Cultural Center will be observed with the second annual America's Hope Award extravaganza Feb. 23 honoring Elizabeth Taylor.

Willenborg is producing the gala, and it will be an ABC-TV special, taped for national broadcast in the spring.

"Linens and Lace" does not sound like a very masculine title for a party honoring two guys like U.S. Ambassador to Mexico John Gavin and San Diego County Sheriff John Duffy. But it was the perfect name for the Ireland Fund's third annual Southern California Dinner Dance, since linen and lace (along with peat-flavored whiskey) are among Ireland's most famous products.

At least two of the 800 participants in the Holiday Bowl's annual Poinsettia Ball, held last week in the Pavilion Ballroom at the Hotel Inter-Continental, looked as if they would have welcomed an early visit from their dear buddy, St. Nick.

At least one thousand public school buildings in California's most populous and earthquake-prone regions harbor potential seismic hazards that district officials say they have been unable to fix. And 11,000 other buildings in Southern California and Bay Area districts surveyed for The Times have not been examined for seismic safety since being built. Four out of five of these unexamined buildings are decades old, the survey found.
