By EARL WILSON NEW YORK Pat allows that he is loos voice howling out against dantdne sex codes that one day recently be heard himself yening back at a TV show which aeemed to be approv- i school love affairs. "Why, you idiots!" he was screaming at a woman psychiatrist and an opera star on toe Mike Douglas program from Cleveland. "Shirley" Pat's wife fixing her hair," he said. "She said to me, 'will you shut up? They can't hear But Pat, the onetime Tennessee and Texas ministerial student who still hankers for the pulpit, says he's right. He was cheered and startled recently when a Vatican paper, without notice, applauded him, a member of the Church of Christ, for being "a gentleman." "It gave me a renewed Incentive for my campaign to try to get some clean and wholesome things on TV and Jn the movies," Pat remarked when I saw him In his hotel suite. He was lighting one of four pipes that were visible, and in the background was the soft singing of tha Righteous Brothers on a record player. Ha was interrupted by a phone call from a friend telling him about forthcoming church services. Going to Church "I might see you at that 10 o'clock service, I probably will a said, as he hung up. "I went to see, 'What's New Pat chuckles "Woody Allen was a writer ony my TV show one of his first jobs. You couldn't help but laugh and scream, but why couldn't that same creativity be used toward something ctean? "I've got a TV show I'd ICte to do called 'The Pat said. "It's about a young minister with a family who moves Into a crowded city and he tries to make reason practical. "He meets up with Junkies and prostitutes and he doesn't always win. Sometimes his wife says, 'Well, better luck Pat says he's already tried to get movie or TV series on Dr. Tom DooJey and on David Wilkerson's best-seller "The Cross and me Switch Blade," for which he's bought the movie rights. Producers have a way of eyeing him suspiciously when proposes almost any project and demanding, "Is it religious?" Producers Disappear "Well, a little bit, but you see he drawls and by that time the producer has gone to lunch. "They explain they're look- Ing for something more risque and gimmicky with musical coconuts or talking trees," ha groans. Pat, who's been doing "West Side Story" in West Coast theaters this summer, his first stage effort, to record-breaking audiences, says he's become conscious of boy meets girl all because his daughter, who's 11, has been engaged three times and has three bubble gum rings to prove it while daughter Debby came home and said: "Do you know what Tommy and Teni did at recess--they kissed!" Pat says, "I liked old days when the boys said, 'Girls I Who needs them? Love? That's got over it eventually but it seems to me they get over it a lot quicker nowadays!" Peck-Loren Film LONDON (AP) Gregory Peck has arrived in London to star with Sophia Loren in "Arabesque," an adventure comedy movie which will be produced a directed by Stanley Donen. Donen's last movie was the highly successful "Charade." By PETER BART 1C) HEW YORK TIMES NEWS 3ERVIC8 HOLLYWOOD, Calif. The mounting tensions of the cold war seem to be inducing more and more Hollywood stars to take a stand on political issues. In so doing the stars are rejecting Hollywood's longstanding unwritten rule that performers should maintain strict political neutrality for fear of antagonizing sponsors or pressure groups. Raymond Burr, star of the Perry Mason television show, has visited Viet Nam four times recently and Is now embarking oa a heavy speaking schedule to marshal public support for an intensified war against the Viet Cong. Bob Hope, traditionally a fence-sitter, is so upset over the Viet Nairi situation that he has fired off telegrams to Secretary of State Dean Rusk and angrily harangues friends about the importance of taking a TOOTS militant posture toward world communism. One loag-standing Hollywood celebrity, Ronald Reagan, now is considered a leading candidate for the Republican gubernatorial nomination in California. George Murphy, another veteran Republican, was elected to the senate last fall. Young Stars, Too Several younger TV stars, among them Dan Blocker of "Bonanza" and Robert Vaughn of "The Man from UNCLE," are active campaigners for the Democrats and are even considering running for public office.

BJocker, also a liberal, not long ago committed the ultimate heresy by engaging in a bitter political argument with Hedda Hopper, a GoUwater Republican, at a banquet financed by Blotter's sponsor, General Motors. Richard Widmark has devoted well over a year to copro- dudng and starring in a film "The Bedford Incident," which he describes as a vivid delineation of "the reactionary militaristic Barry Goldwater- type mind." The central character in the film is a naval captain who, in his zeal to humiliate Uia Soviets, preclpl- tales a nuclear accident. The heightened political activity is apparent on many levels in Hollywood. Wendell Corey, for example, recently won a seat In the Santa Monica dty council and has vastly stepped up his partidpaUon in local affairs. Such stan as Marlon Brando and Steve Allen sre very active in civil rights causes. Goodwin Envoys Kirk Douglas and Chartton Heston have spent considerable time recently as goodwill ambassadors for government agencies overseas.

Tba Increased activity has put some of the stars in difficult positions. Raymond Burr recently spoke before the Loa Angeles World Affairs Council and white his prepared remarks were well received ha plainly was not prepared to cope with some of the complex questions put to him. "The government has its best minds working on this problem and we must trust their Judgment," he replied to some doubting questioners. Burr advocated a toughened stand in Viet Nam and urged tha government to "throw a shield" around ail the free nations of Southeast Asia. Co A Ball Northporls 313 TA4-6361 Bob Hope, whose most recent telegram to Secretary Rusk urged an Immediate end to United States aid to any nation supplying arms or otherwise dealing with the Viet Cong or its allies and supporters, concedes his concern over his increased activity. "When the public knows what your polities are it makes it harder to make jokes at the expense of both sides," he says. "Suddenly your Jokes are colored."
