TUtSDAY, NOVtMli* 20, 1*71 ANDEMOH DAILY IUUETIH PAttf By ABBIGAIL VAN BUREN DEAR ABBY: Do you think an 80-year- oid man is foolish to consider remarriage? Some of my children do. I am a widower who has been alone for 12 years, during wMch time 1 have been in the company ot some lovely eligible women. But I never have warc'ed >'o marry until I met My Fair Lac'y. She is 65 and has been a wi- d™ 'or 10 years. We are both in reasonably good health, rrtl we would like to spend the rest of our lives together, making each other h?ppy. All our children are married, feme approve of our plans to marry; some do .-ot. I own my own home and have a little rainey. In view of the mixed feelings of cur children, should we sneak' off and get married by a preacher with just a few friends as witnesses? Or should we have a small church wedding, invite all the children, and let those who want to, come, and tho-e who don't, stay home? YOUNG AT HEART DEAR YOUNG: Why sneak? Do whatever pleases you and your Fair Lady. Tbe In.sl thing you should worry about is what your children think. DEAR AB'BY: My girl friend and I are both 17. When Lydia does something to displease her parents, they make her stand in a comer. A couple of times when Ive come to take her out on a date, her father has said: "Lydia can leave in about 10 minutes — after she's thru standing in the corcer." So I just si and cool my heels while Lydia stands in the corner with her face to the wall. I think this is a ridiculous way to punish a 17-yeat-old girl, but of course it's not my place to butt in. Are you familiar with this stupid punishment? And if so, what's the reason for it? And what do you think of using it on a 17-year-old? FEELING WEIRD IN MD. Voice Of Broadway NEW YORK (KFS) - L.

Often in this scene there's a cruise ship, anchored in a lagoon framed by arching palms and beaches which are totally deserted. French Polynesia offers such a setting — islands scattered among Ihe warm South Seas waters. One day we an, chored rear one, the storied island of Ran' ' giroa, a coral strip — the largest of French Polynesia's Tuomotu group, an island soaking in Ihe Pacific 300 miles south of the Marquesas. Rangiroa rises out of a lagoon 45 miles long and 15 miles wide, huge enough to contain the entire island of Tahiti. On Rangiroa there is an old woman with skin the color of walnut slain who rents out (hatched bungalows woth meals of turtle eggs, fresh grilled fish and chicken. The coffee is served in bowls and the Jam is homemade. Guests arc joined at the dimrer (able hy Henrietta, the woman's pel pig. Unfortunately, though, cruise ships have g habit of pulling up anchor too soon, which is what happened at Rangiroa, and so we bid goodbye to Henrietta and the old woman and sailed off lo Manihi, an island with a population of less than 100 (including the one policeman).

The reason for 'this is that Manihi is populated by pearl divers and their lives are lived deep in the ocean with the »Uan«e the children played with th« DEAR WEIRD: Yes, I'm familiar with it. It's a very effective way to make a child setlle clown anil reflect on the reason he's being punished. But lo use it on a girl of dating age, in the presence of her date. I think is cruel anil unusual punishment, DEAR ABBY: Our church recently installed a sel of "chimes" — a large lape player and four huge speakers, mounted on top of the church. The music is all hymns, played on an organ with loud bells. They play it alt least once a day from 15 to 45 minutes, and sometimes it's played three times a day. Tin's can be heard all over town, and people who live .four miles from town say they are disturbed by it, too. I live near the church, and this is pretty hard to take. It's impossible to carry on a conversation (in our house, mind you), and. this music is too loud to be considered pretty. I think church music belongs IN church. If leen'agers played Iheir rock music this loud ail a party, the police would break up the party and charge the kids with disturbing the peace. This is a small town. My peace is disturbed. I am a tax-paying senior citizen who asked the pastor of the church to please tone the music down. He did for a while. Now it's as loud as ever. Maybe if you priwt this, it will help.

I must tell you, though, of an experience, earlier, on the island of Raiatea, a place that is straight from a South Se-as novel. Down by the lown of Uturoa Ihe dock was piled high with gunny sacks as we came ashore. They were full of copra and were being leaded abcsrd an ancient, wheezing boat which had coughed its way down from Tahili. Raiatea's islanders stood in the hot sun watching .Ihe workmen.

Reaction to fuel shortage concerns many economists By JOHN CUNNIFF AP Business Analyst NEW YORK (AP) - Th« question no longer is whether or not there is an energy shortage. There is. The controversy now, at least among economists, concerns our reaction to the shortage. The answer is a critical one because Hie assumption made dictates Hie action advocated. It is here that tlie pros, •generally agree tihal the country will soon be flirting with re/ cession, go their separate Wai's. Walter Heller, former Kennedy administration economic adviser and now a University of Minnesota professor, disagrees w 11 h Treasury Secretary George P. Slmllz, who believes the pwblic is over-treacling. "Over-reading? Indeed not," said Heller. "The energy shortage could actually convert a mild economic expansion Mo something that looks like a recession." Milton Friedman of .the University of Ohifcago, an advocate of free markets, a Republican and fl forecaster of recession oven before the Mideast oil embargo, believes the nation has ''enormously exaggerated" U» shortage. Total erode oil consumption costs $« IMllion a year, he explained.
