Earl Wilson Sjof : Recession in a Rolls i PALM SPRINGS - "In ; Palm Springs," the great ^'satirist Mark Russell said, "Nelson Rockefeller jj considered tacky.".

One sign of the non- recession was the opening of opulent tennis and golf additions at the New Canyon Hotel, which is a baby born of the successful m a r r i a g e of American Airlines' and Americana Hotels. The New York brass -- Mario de Genova and Jim Heimbaugh -were smiling about the capacity bookings and bright convention outlook. They gave a couple of parties where Freddie Martin's orchestra played for "body contact" dancing -- remember? People holding each other? William Demarest, 82; Don Wilson; John Cbnte, prez of the TV station; Mrs. Leo Durocher, and people like that were making it quite clear that no recession will be tolerated here. ' ' .

' . . Wish I'd Said That: The trouble with some families is that they have Cadillac tastes and compact incomes. --Arnold Glasow Remembered Quote: "Brains are not a handicap to a girl,- because the smart 'miss knows enough to hide them behind a low neckline." Earl's Pearls: With income tax time coming up, it's well to remember-that New York is about 220 miles from Washington -- as the dough flies. . A H'wood producer wants to make a film bio about Lee Strasberg, the head of Actors Studio. He even has a name for it: "Stage Coach."

Mark Russell made the point ( that southern California has its own peculiar outlook. There h a v e been predictions that California will fall off into the ocean. ' "When the West Coast of the United States is in N e b r a s k a , Governor Brown will be able to say, 'I told you I'd- get the state moving.'" Russell heard that a Palm Springs citizen met a -Washington chap and asked "How's Nixon? The W a s h i n g t o n i a n replied, "Nixon resigned!" The local fellow said, "He did? You mean Agnew's President?" Russell repeated a rumor that he'd heard: that Kissinger's planning a trip to the United States. Despite all the optimism about the economy in Palm Springs, Mark declared that it's not so happy in Washington where he lives. "I heard f r o m my bank," he said. "They want their toaster back." Betty Huttoh, having fattened up to almost 100 pounds, will return to Show Biz at the Riverboat in March singing the old favorites ... Ruby Keeler is back in Lacuna Beach, recovered from her stroke ... Alice Faye \vas given a surprise party before returning to Palm Springs after the closing of her show "Good News." That closing will remain one of the mysteries of 1974. Alice Faye wants to do more. "I got a little taste of it," she admitted ... "I hope I get a job real soon." David Frost Caroline Cushing flew in from Sydney and stopped at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas. HOLLYWOOD (UPD Jeffrey Konvitz is a smart lawyer who got rich almost by mistake while t r y i n g to b r e a k into movies as a'producer. , Konvitz is the 30-year- old author of "The Sentinel," a best-selling novel, the paperback rights of which sold'for $200,000. He o f f e r e d Universal Pictures' film rights for $300,000 with the proviso that he write the script and produce the movie. For openers the brash, personable Konvitz banked a half million bucks. Now Konvitz is in the driver's seat and loving every moment. AS AN attorney for the bankrupt J e r r y Lewis Theatre chain, an executive at MGM and agent for CMA, Konvitz hankered to be a producer. But he lacked two .essentials- money and a salable property. He set about getting a property by writing his own novel. It took two' years, from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m. every night while working.full time during the day on his legal career. However much money he has now and however popular his book, Konvitz faces the biggest problem he has encountered since completing the script. "I can't find a -leading lady," he complained. "This is the story, of a girl in her mid-20s that audiences could believe is a fashion model, who looks vulnerable and sensitive and can handle emotions f r o m instant happiness to instant terror. "But the terrible truth is that there is no such person as an under-30 female motion picture star except for Liza Minnelli; and she's not right for this role. . ' "And my definition of a star is a woman who combines charisma and talent. Maybe there are some girls with talent and some lunatics' ma. But no one who; combines both. - · "NATURALLY I'd like; an established star withi name value to help at the; box office.'Assuming;; there-is no such girl, it is? irrelevant if an actress; has a marginal name ore- no name at all. i.
