Re "Secrets and Lives," by Shari Roan, Life & Style, April 23: As someone who believes human beings have the right to choose the circumstances under which we reveal ourselves, I find it sad that we require an expert to tell us to exercise common sense and good judgment in these matters.

I only want to dispute Lou Sheldon's remark that the program should be ended because it does not give the gay student "any other alternative viewpoint." I realize this man is no Einstein, but give me a break. When we are constantly bombarded by half-naked heterosexual couples selling us everything from suppositories to life insurance, I believe there are enough suggestions of alternative life styles. With 3,000 teen-agers getting pregnant every day in this country, I'd say the life style message is loud and clear.

Park La Brea is the last place you'd expect to find a baron. But that's where Baron Frederick von Soosten has his Los Angeles home, inside one of those gray structures that overlooks similar gray structures. A few days ago, Von Soosten was having a spur-of-the-moment cocktail party for his titled friends--countesses and barons and baronesses and a prince and a marquis.

America's Junior Miss pageant is changing its name to the America's Young Woman of the Year program. "America's Young Woman of the Year is more contemporary and meaningful to today's life style," Executive Vice President R. C. (Buddy) Lauten said Monday. He said the change was made in response to complaints that beauty pageants are outdated and exploit women, and he said it will help contestants "better serve as role models for the people about them."

This country is surveying the health and "sociological state" of people aged 100 or more to discover the secrets of longevity, the official Hungarian news agency MTI said Wednesday. On top of genetic factors, Budapest's Semmelweis Medical University is paying particular attention to environment, life style, the earlier occupation and present activity of the people concerned. There are estimated to more than 200 centenarians among Hungary's population of 10.6 million, MTI said.

I'm incensed! Another big color spread in Life & Style extolling the "gay" lifestyle ("We Have Arrived," June 13). What's gay about such a sterile relationship? Or are these front-page articles just another example of the media's denigrating the Judeo-Christian and family lifestyles so prevalent today? Those of us who have studied the history of civilization are fearful for America. Aren't you? H.J. TONER Irvine
