I asked Peter Graves of "Mission: Impossible" the other day and his candor was refreshing. MOST SERIES stars bleat that their shows are "challenging." Graves grinned broadly and said: "There's a certain amount of truth in what one of our directors said on the set this season. He told me, 'when I first started in this Channel Chuckles By BIL KEANE _ "News, commercial, station break, bulletin, program, news, commercial, station break . .." business I thought it was an art. It took me several years to discover I was in commerce.' "The fact is that being in a series is more than making money and marking time. The whole idea is to make something popular—which doesn't necessarily mean it's good. But often the two go together. I think popularity and quality are combined on our show." Graves, brother of Jim Arness who stars in "Gun- smoke!", is tall and relaxed. His silver and blond hair is neatly combed and his voice is low and easy. "MISSION: Impossible" is his fourth series. He previously starred in "Fury," "Whiplash" and "Court Martial," none of which measured up to his current show. Naturally, Graves would rather be starring in explosively important motion pictures, as would co-stars Barbara Bain and Martin Landau. "But great movie scripts don't come along every day," Graves said. "If you are dedicated to fine things and want to sit on the fence waiting for them, you could wait the rest of your life. The alternative is to keep working and seeking. "ALL ACTORS like to work. If you can't play 'Hamlet,' then you do the 'Beverly Hillbillies' if that's all you're offered. "From time to time I've done things I'm not proud of. But there are practical considerations like paying the rent and feeding your family. And afterwards you put it behind you."

It may not make the world forget "Gone With the Wind," but Graves would like to continue to do at least one film a year while the series remains on the air. "WE'RE FORTUNATE on our show because each of the actors plays at least two characters every week," he said. "Often we're called upon to portray three or four. "I'm not saying this is a great challenge. But it does prevent us from being typecast. "Is is art? In a sense, yes," Graves concluded with a wink. "But it is also commerce."
