Although she plays teenage roles, Miss Darby is actually 21, and mother of a 3-month-old daughter. MOVIE BREAK - Actor John Wayne, w ho plays the role of Cogburn Rooster in "True Grit," takes a moment to have a laugh with actress Kim Darby, who plays the part of the heroine, Mattie Ross, in the movie version of the best selling novel. Miss Darby, who is caught t'Pl Tolcpholo Proceeds from the performance, was attended by the Royal with the exception of Queen and Prince Philip, who are on American tour, will benefit the Artists' Benevolent Fund in TALKS WITH SINGERS - Princess Anne of England talks with members of the American pop singing group, Diana Ross and the Supremes, following the trio's recent act in the Royal Variety Performance at the Palladium in London. The entertainers are left to right, Diana Ross, Mary Wilson and Florence "I'd be wary to tell," he said. "The place would be swarming with other miners." The big guy fully expects to suck up enough gold to refill bins at Ft. Knox. "What makes it so intriguing is that you don't know how much money you can find," he said. "I'm not interested in hard rock mining. I tried that once. It's too expensive and work is brutal." Walker was asked what he would do if, after vacuuming beds of several rivers, he came up empty. "Part of the enjoyment is getting away from it all," he said. "Besides that, you never know what's just around the next bend." It has been said that more gold prospectors these days have long since gone round the bend. But Clint still has an ace the hole. "If another picture comes along and keeps me from mining up there," he concluded, "I'll just mine the gold right herein the movies."

Musician Is Arrested NEW YORK (AP) - "The Jefferson Airplane," a rock music group, tried to take off from the roof of a midtown hotel Tuesday. The result: a bumpy landing for actor Rip Torn and filmmaker Richard Leacock. The group had plugged in its amplifiers atop the nine-story hotel on West 45th Street for the filming of a television film documentary. But police were summoned when the guitar noise got the better of guests and tied up traffic on the street below. When police investigated. Torn got into an argument and pushed a patrolman, officers said.

She's a chubby 9-year-old blonde who disiikes taking baths, has a crush on her science teacher, and is mad about spaghetti. In other words, she's in many ways like most girls her age. r -i -I By DICK KLEINER HOLLYWOOD (XEAl -It's belt-tightening time for Aldo Ray - but the prospects are good for considerable belt-loosening in around six months. "These are hard times for me," Aldo said. "I'm living in a motel room. I haven't spent two cents on myself in months." That's the way it is with tycoons. Aldo Ray. the actor, doesn't make as much money as Aldo Ray. the land tycoon. But, right at the moment, most of his money is tied up in a couple of big land deals. He says he has to shell out alimony and support payments of around $12,000 a year and his insurance premiums come to another $20,000. Which is why the present lean period. "But, by next spring," he says, and his big face brightens, "I'll be over the hump. That's when the money starts rolling in from the land deals, and from then on 'I'll be able to live a little. I figure my investments will bring me $30,000 a year from then on." Ray will still act. of course. He'd like to do one or two pictures a year, or maybe a television series. He wants to stay close to Hollywood, to be with his two young sons. He and his wife are divorced, but there is "a possibility of them getting together again." "If we do get backtogeth-er," he says, "the first thing I'm going to do is to take my boys to a regular barber shop. My wife has them going to a hairstvlist." By VERNON SCOTT DPI Hollywood Correspondent HOLLYWOOD (UPI) -Hint Walker, the enormous actor who starred in the defunct "Cheyenne" television series, is running a fever of approximately 110 degrees. If it were a medical fever he would long since have gone to that big corral in the sky. But Clint has gold fever which, in some respects, is as deadly as the kind you run off the top of a thermometer. Eight or ten years ago Clint ambled off into the gold country of northern California to skin dive in the freezing American. Yuba and Feather rivers among others seeking out nuggets. One suspects he picked up more colds than he did gold. Since that time he has traveled over the area in airplanes, helicopters and automobiles with a prospector's fervor, convinced there is gold in them thar rivers. When he completes his current role in "The Great Bank Robbery" at Warner Bros., Clint will be off again. He pulled a quartz rock from his pocket which was speckled with gold. Turning it over in his huge paw, Walker's eyes lit up. "I know there's gold up there," he said. "And I've got a new plan to get at it with some placer mining. "I'm going to be dropped into some of that rugged country by helicopter. I'll have a raft with a sluice box on top and a suction pump with a hose running down into the water. "The hose will suck up the dirt and rock like a vacuum cleaner along the bottom until I get to bedrock. "Well, gold is heavy, and I should pick up a lot of gold that way." Walker, like all victims of gold fever, was secretive about the area he would be pumping with his raft-sluice-vacuum. lie was equally mum about how much gold he has mined in the past decade. Jamaica To Honor Martin Luther King WASHINGTON (AP) - The government of Jamaica will present posthoumously Dec. 10 its Marcus Garvey Prize for Human Rights to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., its embassy said here Tuesday.

" Bayn has a grueling schedule that includes classes five days a week at the Lenox School, six shows a week of "Curley" and occasional modeling jobs and personal appearances. But so far, Mrs. Johnson believes, her only child has not been adversley affected by her double life as a schoolgiri-leading lady. On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights, when she isn't working, Bayn spends at least two hours with her father, an economics consultant who teaches part-time at New York University while writing for his doctor's degree. They go to places like the Hayden Planatarium, or listen to records, or he reads stories to her. She goes to bed at 8:30 p.m. "But I got to stay up until 10 on election night," Bayn said. "I was for Nixon. I like his ideas. Everyone at my school wanted Humphrey." "And her grandfather is president of the Republican Club back home," Mrs. Johnson interjected. Bayn was born in New Or-, leans on Nov. 4, 1959. Her name comes from her mother's maiden name, Bannister. She was a baby model at 2. and continued her career when her parents moved to New York three years ago. She has appeared in 150 fashion shows and has posed for national magazines. "Bayn was taking singing lessons when her teacher heard about the show and urged her to audition," Mrs. Johnson said. "She won out over 1.000 other little girls and then she had to take elocution lessons to get rid of her southern accent." Th.e50-inch Bayri sings, dances, mugs, struts, shakes her head, rolls her eyes, waves her fingers and tosses out one-liners just like the present Mrs. Charles Black did a few decades ago. Last summer Bayn and her mother spent three weeks in Europe, visiting England, Germany, Switzerland, Greece and France. When Bayn is away, and also on Tuesday's and Wednesdays, the part of "Curley" is played by Robbi Morgan, 7, of Passaic, N.J.

But then most girls aren't the star of "Curley McDim-ple," the camp Shirley Temple musical that enters its second year on Nov. 22 at the Bert Wheeler Theater. And most girls don't have a fan club with 1.000 members. "I love being Curley," the surprisingly shy, blue-eyed child star said the other day in the East 69th Street Apartment of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Johnson. "It's fun getting letters and stuff," she added. "At school the kids even ask me for my autograph, which really surprises me. Even one of my teacher's boy friends wanted my autograph." But Bayn really doesn't talk very much in an interview. Her usual response to questions is to smile, glance across the room at her mother, smile again and not say a word. And so her 33-year-old mother, Pat, who wears mini-miniskirts and was once a model, does most of the talking. "All Bob and I want is to make Bayn a fine little girl.
