Mission accomplished. Starr played his familiar role of hammy emceeentertainer, strolling around in a bright blue circus jacket covered with starry designs.

He opened with a few throaty, occasionally pitch signature tunes such as "It Don't Come Easy" (no, it don't, because Starr was never known for his vocals) and "Act Naturally." But the festive tone was set and continued unabated, while the musicianship kept getting better and heavier -as the night progressed. Frampton was the catalyst, the riff-meister who played anyone's s. Peter Frampton, one of Ringo Starr's able sidekicks last night, joked that Ringo "throws together" 'MusiC these periodic all-. star bands. Oops, KeVieW I mean he hand- picks them," said Frampton, as Starr laughed behind him.

In truth, Starr's last batch of all stars did feel thrown together. Among them were Randy Bachman i'of BTO, John Entwistle of The Who, I and Mark Farner of Grand Funk Railroad. That show was disjointed, more like a revue by musicians from different planets. Happily, last night was just the opposite. The chemistry among this year's all-stars, including Frampton, bassist Jack Bruce of Cream, keyboardist Gary Brooker of Procol Harum, drummer Simon Kirke of Bad Company and Free, and saxo-Jphonist Mark Rivera of Foreigner I and Billy Joel fame, was outstand- ing.

They meshed like a true band and supported one another's songs with respect and brio. In purely musical terms, this was the best of Starr's four tours so far. At the very least, it was right up if there with the initial two the first at Great Woods in 1990 with Dr. John, Clarence demons, Nils Lof-l gren, and Joe Walsh; and the second at Great Woods in 1992 with Walsh, Lofgren, Todd Rundgren, and Dave If Edmunds. t.

Starr's appeal, regardless of his I Beatles cachet, has since been down-l sized to Harborlights, where 3,700 I folks took in last night's time-warp revelry amid positively frosty weath- er. Starr even called it his "winter" Friend's Dear Beth: Last winter one of the best kids in our school was in a car accident and got hurt very badly. Susie was in the hospital for a long time and finally she died. We all miss her so much. Now I can't stop thinking about i dying.

My mom says Susie's in heaven and I shouldn't feel sorry for her. I do, but who I really feel sorry for is me! We're all going to die, and I hate knowing about it. Thinking about death all the time makes me so afraid. No one can seem to help me. Is there life after death? Do you think I should see a shrink? TERRIFIED People who are deeply religious believe there is some kind of existence after death.

No one really knows. Others believe that death is the end of a person's consciousness. In that case they would not realize they were dead. So there would be no point in worrying about it. However, only a very, very few people really want to die.

It is normal to feel grief and even "TWO THUMBS UP!" Ropr Eitn. SISKEL EBERT "One of the most stylish and most powerfully acted films of the year." Jay Can.

Frampton and Bruce combined like brothers, jamming later in the show and keeping fans out of their seats for most of the night. This was no memory-lane walk-through, that's for sure. Bruce, still playing fretless bass, added primal vocals on Cream's "Sunshine of Your Love" and "I Feel Free." Brooker was classy throughout, playing a Yamaha Clavinova to stately effect on Procol Harum's "Conquistador" and the timeless psychedelic ballad, "Whiter Shade of Pale." Starr then brought it all home on the Beatles' "With a Little Help from My Friends." He got a lot of help last night.

Frampton's physical look was the most unexpected (short, bright-white hair and wire-rimmed glasses, compared to the wild mane of blond hair during his youth), but his boyish voice was intact on his fluid pop hits, "Show Me the Way" and "Baby, I Love Your Way." But his best moments were his guitar sparks on Bruce's Cream tune, "White Room," and Kirke's grinding, 1970 Free hit, "All defend yourself, they are not so apt to provoke you like this. Other advice comes from a book called "The Teen Tip: A Complete Resource Guide," by Gayle Kimball and more than 1,500 young people (Equality Press). For example: "Talk a mile a minute and try to show them why it wouldn't be in their best interest to beat you up.

It might confuse them long enough for you to get away." "Ignore them." "Don't resort to their level. Don't let their comments bother you because most likely that person is jealous of you and really needs a friend." "People aren't jerks forever it'll mellow out." "If he pushes you and says, 'Come on, then just look at him and smile a fat grin and say, You know, dude, you're not worth my time' and walk away."

I'm so grateful to have him. He is now on a long waiting list for a day program, and until an opening becomes available, he will continue to stay home all day. The problem is my family's attitude toward Jimmy. They want me to put him in a home so I can have my own life. I tell them that I do and that Jimmy is part of it.

Don't misunderstand me my family always treats my son cordially when we visit, but it would be really nice if one of them would offer to watch him for a few hours and give me a little break. By the way, please ask people not to come up to us and shout, "Does your son have Down syndrome?" or "How retarded is he?" My son can hear perfectly well and is bright enough to know when he's being talked about, not to. BRANDON, FLA I am appalled by your family's lack of sensitivity, not to mention common sense. I am printing your letter in the hope that my readers with friends or family members who are tied down caring for someone with a disability will offer some relief.

However, if your feelings are making you so upset and depressed that it affects your daily life, then by all means talk to someone about this. Ask your parents or the school to set you up with a counselor. Counselors are trained to help others cope with their emotional problems and should be able to ease your worries and fears. Dear Beth: I am a guy, 14. I'm small for my age, so some other kids keep trying to push me around.

I try to be nice, and if that doesn't work I walk away. I keep praying I will grow some more, but my dad's short so maybe I won't. He just says, "Stick up for yourself and they'll leave you alone." When I try this, a couple of guys start shoving me around. NEEDS HELP I often advise kids who are getting pushed around to get some lessons in the martial arts. When people see that you really know how to EH that some do, but some people also eat too much.

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer. Should we take away food? Some people watch too much television. TV has contributed greatly to the "dumbing down" of our society. Should we make it illegal? When we smoke pot, we do it in our own home.

It's not nearly as unhealthy as eating junk food or as dangerous as driving after three or four beers. So, please, Ann, leave us alone. THE GIRL NEXT DOOR, ANYWHERE, USA I am perfectly willing to leave you alone as long as you don't get behind the wheel of a car, attempt to operate a piece of machinery, or perform surgery on some unsuspecting patient while under the influence. Meanwhile, pot is an illegal substance, and unless that changes, I am not about to give it my stamp of approval. Dear Ann Landers: My son, "Jimmy," has Down syndrome and will be 24 soon.

He is nonverbal and functions on a 4- to 5-year-old level. I have been a single parent for 23 years and have done the absolute best I could. Jimmy is well behaved at home and in public and is of the nicest people any tU2 llJ XZaJ rll Wfsr IIUU II VI 9- "WW" liiiiwfii Dear Readers: You already know how I feel about smoking marijuana. In the spirit of evenhandedness, I'm printing another point of view. Here it is: Dear Ann Landers: I smoke pot.

I have done so for nearly 10 years. I don't lie, steal, cheat, or fool around. I don't do any other drugs, nor do. I have the desire to. I am not a cigarette smoker, and I don't drink alcohol, watch sleazy movies, or read trashy novels.

What do I do? I live a quiet life and go to school full time on a scholarship. I work part time at a job where I am respected by management, co-workers, and clientele. I pay my bills on time, balance my checkbook, live within my means, exercise regularly, watch my weight, and eat healthy. I am married to a wonderful man who also smokes pot. He works hard to help pay the bills.

He is dedicated, understanding, loving, and my best friend. We don't fight, stay out all night, or party on weekends. In fact, with his 60-hour work week and my classes, part-time job, and one full day of volunteer work each week, where would we find the time?
