THIS WEEK By CAROL BOTWIN '..Tm some kind \ofhope' They know I'm not a teenager. I've never tried to hide my age or the fact that I'm married, like other people do. They know I'm not cheating," said 34-year-old Petula Clark, looking very young and groovy in a pants outfit and strands of necklaces. She was explaining why under-30's dig her. "I had some great letters last week . . . it's almost as if I'm some kind of hope, you know — that it is possible to have a home and family and at the same time to be aware. But I'm not into politics. Politics makes me sort of disgusted. A lot of these letters make me realize that one has to do something, though. I don't know what. '•I don't think John Lennon did it with his bed-in. I went to see John in Montreal, and we talked a long time ... I like him very much. We talked . about peace, and he asked me to dedicate a concert to peace. 'Go out and say it,' he said, and I did. I'd been feeling it all along, but I just hadn't said it. Maybe you have to." Petula, who had just finished the musical remake of Goodbye, Mr. Chips for MGM, was sitting in her hotel suite talking about how her life as a TV, record, and 'movie artist was deepening on many levels. "I'm just beginning to understand what singing is all about. Not just the notes — after all, I've been singing ever since I can remember — but the interpretation." Petula has been belting out songs for the public since she was seven. And she's been battling the problems created by child stardom all her adult life. "I started singing for BBC Radio for Overseas Forces during World War II. I was their little girl. When I started growing up and having a bosom, it was difficult. They didn't want me to grow up. "At 171 was making pictures. I had my own TV series and lots of hit records, but I wanted to do my own thing, make my own mistakes. I was under contract to the Rank film organization. My father was managing me, and he was very strict. There seemed to be so many things I couldn't do. I wasn't allowed to go out with boys unless the studio and my father approved of them. "And artistically I wanted something else. 1 had gone on doing all the cute things I started doing when I was seven. I never really understood what it was all about. I would just go Mfctwol MMwrd/CoMra 5 on*stage like a little animal. When I got my way on a television show and did a song like "When the World Was Young" — the line about lying in the hay, games we used to play—it created a minor revolution just because it was me singing it. There were angry phone calls and letters. So from every angle . I was in a sort of prison. "My education was pretty negative too. First of all, it was wartime, and even when I did get to school, it was in and out of bomb shelters. I feel the lack still today. I happen to be in the sort of environment where it doesn't matter too much, but that's luck. I" didn't have any background or know about anything but show business. 14
