those were different times- the Philadelphia Fillies (1971)

from the same April 19, 1971 Sports Illustrated article:

"Throughout the game considerable fan reaction was focused on the usherettes, known as the Fillies. There were 140 of them, recruited from 432 applicants after being advised by letter to wear "your shortest skirt and tightest blouse" to the interviews. The 35 Fillies officially designated as best looking were called, collectively, the Hot Pants Patrol and were attired in red hot pants. in 48 degree inauguration-day weather they were also fitted out in blue cold legs."

Sorry about the terrible screen grab. Any more info about the Fillies would be appreciated, as I am an afficiando of gams, hot pants, and go-go boots.
