By DON FREEMAN HOLLYWOOD "I was the first sex symbol, said Mae West, the words flowing lightly, insinuatingly out of the comer of her mouth. And I was the first to use the word alone in a play I wrote called Sex. Before that, it was a word in, yknow, medical books, or people said, The fair sex. The newspapers wouldn't even print the title in die ads. They said, See Mae West in That Certain Play, but that was in another day, another time. . . . Mae West! There she sits primly well, almost primly on a sofa in her luxurious sixth-floor apartment in Hollywood. The decor is all chasity white. On one wall hangs a- nude portrait and on the white piano rests a nude statue both are, of course. Miss West and atop a record player is her recent Way Out West" album wherein she sings, in her inimitable fashion, rock n roll songs. AGELESS EYES Mae West! Looking at you through very clear eyes with their glint of delicious candor they are ageless eyes, very blue-green. She wears a floral dressing gown and her platinum curls topple over her shoulders. The book says she'll soon pass her 75th birthday but who wants to believe everything you read? Here, feel the skin on my MAE WEST T Have Mine BAZAARS, FOOD SALES.

In both areas, the skin is soft and as taut as a banjo string. She looks pleased, this new darling of the college crowd, who flock to her old movies and send her presents, such as diamonds. Exercise honey, she explains. Im always exercisin. And I have my diet. One steak a week. One egg a day. Don't smoke, don't drink. Lots of salads with subtle dressin.' No white bread. No canned goods. Its all to keep my measurements and to keep me in my 20s. A throaty giggle. I used to be 26. Now I'm 28. Whatever her age, the indestructible Mae is full of fire and plans. Theres her first television special, for instance, which will be turned out for Universal TV by Robert Wise, who also produced Sound of Music. Did a? sums m hb wm Winner of Golden Globe Award!

Censors? Miss West smiled. Are they still around? Maybe not in the movies, but in television. I never had trouble with the censors, Mae said. They were my friends. Theyd come with me to see screes from my pictures and they'd laugh and scream and then they'd say, Oh, Mae, thats gotta go!! But I never did anything in bad taste. I'm a person of good taste. Im regal and subtle. I never disrobed like some do today. It's my personality. It's not what I say, its the way I say it. FUNNY The way she says it Is soft, languid, purring and wonderfully funny. The time on radio, when I played Eve and Don Ameche was Adam, she said, eyes wide hi mock astonishment They approved the script but I must've put somethin into the words when I said em. And I said to Charlie McCarthy, 'Come on up and I'll let you play in my wood pile. Whats so terrible about that? I'll say something innocent like Too much of a good thing is wonderful and the critics squirm in their shoes. They wanted me to do an advice to the lovelorn show," Miss West resumed. "It would a been like educational TV. Id answer questions that puzzle women, like how do you hold a man? I always say, In your arms, honey, -in your arms, I tell em the ground rules 'Love thy neighbor but not they neighbors husband.' Its all psychological. But I turned it down. My audience doesn't want me at a desk, with only 5 per cent showin. They want to see .me movin' around. Somehow the conversation drifted to sex personalities, a descriptive phrase that struck her fancy. ELVIS TOPS Elvis Presley is the No. 1 sex personality of the day, Mae said. "Sinatra is a sex personality but only when he sings. Dean Martin is a sex personality and so is that big one from Cheyenne Clint Walker. But you dont have to be big James Cagney was always a sex pep sonality.
