Palm Springs Weekend', Disney Feature Scheduled Every year at Easter time, thousands of young Americans scatter to the nation's sunny resorts for a fling at fun and romance before resuming their studies for the rest of the school year. That is the background and the source of the plot of "Palm Springs Weekend", which opens for a four-day run at the State Theater here Sunday. Rounding out the week and extending into the following week is Walt Disney's "Sword In the Stone." Accompaning the Disney feature is a selected short subject "Yellow Stone Cubs." Cast in "Palm Springs Weekend" is Troy Donahue, Stefanle Powers, Ty Hardin, Connie Stevens, Robert Conard, Jerry Van Dyke, Carole Cook, Andrew Duggan and Jack Weston. "Palm Springs" is a youngsters' picture, dominated by young people and devoted to the 'Destry Gallops Onto TV Screen By BOB THOMAS AP Movl«-T«l«vUlon Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) — Last night a new Western galloped onto the television tubes for a shoot-out against great odds. ABC's "Destry" replaced "77 Sunset Strip," which a change of format could not save. "Destry," from the same Revue stable that has produced "Wagon Train" and "The Virginian," faced two hazards: 1. Television Westerns are on the decline; 2. Seldom has a midscason entry scored a success. These hazards are viewed realistically by John Gavin, fifth notable to play Destry, the reluctant hero—Tom Mix, James Stewart, Audie Murphy on the screen, Andy Griffith on Broadway. "Of court* I think it was a rat-fink trick of the network to put us on in midseason with the odcis so heavily against us," said Gavin. "But I think we have a reasonable chance of succeeding. "At least our chances look Odom Stay Morton Hearing Is Next Week KANSAS CITY (AP)-^A hear Ing on a motion for a stay of execution for Charles Harvey Odom, has been scheduled for next Thursday. Odom is schcd ul>ed to be executed March 6 for the forcible rape of a 13-year old girl. The hearing was ordered this week by Judge Floyd R. Bigson who received petition: for a writ of habeas corpus and the motion for a stay. ettcr to me now that we have ached a semblance of agreement on what the character of Jestry is to be. There was much onlusion at the start and a hangc of production personnel so that the concept wasn't clear t all. It would be senseless to at- cmpt the standard type of Vestern hero. Destry is a non- icro, yet he is no maverick type >f con man. And he certainly sn't a coward—the audience wouldn't buy that. "He is the kind of a man that hings happen to. For instance, Jna Merkel plays a nice little ady who Ikes to rob banks. He eels sorry for her so he finds timself digging a tunnel to the sank to put the money back." Gavi. said he took the series or seveial reasons, including money. But mainly he wanted to get some action and some seasoning. "I began by starring in my irst piciurc and I've done leads ever since. I had hoped to gel some action pictures, but they stuck me in an Ivy-League suit and put me in melodramas. "Fina'ly I'm getting some ac- ion. It should be great experience for me, if I survive."

Sherman carry such whimsical titles as "Higitus-Figitus", "A Most Befuddling Thing" and "Mad Man Mim". The cartoon feature comes after more than three years in production. 'Sword in the Stone" is aimed to tickle the funnytoone of movie- joers, and to delight the young in teart of all ages. In a highly amusing way, the story is of the legendary King Arthur's boyhood and his adven- :ures with Merlin, the prophet, magician, and benefactor of the young king. Weather once again win decide Jie action at the Garden Drive In Theater. If the weatherman cooperates two features — "Gazebo" and "Nine Hours to Rama" will be shown over the weekend.

Central character of the murderer, Natu Godse, is played by Buchholz. Godse, a political fanatic, is chosen by his superiors to kill Gandhi, whose creed of non-violence in a violent world was anathema to his detractor!.
