The only sensible rule about names 'is to pronounce them as their natives do, no matter how phonetically silly it may seem.

This was Brenda Lee, the 15-year- old Nashville, Tenn., girl called to get her first gold record for the recking ballad, "I'm Sorry."

V-If you had it in your power to re-live one portion of your life, which .would it be? Grammar school days? High school days? Your first sweetheart? The young married years? We put this intriguing thought throughout the country to determine how the pan- orama' of life appeared to those who have yet to view it through the .rose colored glasses of nos- talgia. For most of us, the ''good old days" are but a pleasant myth in- .vented by a convenient .memory, which clouds over the bad things of the past and enables- us too see only tne good. We relish the memory of the oldjswimming hole, the nights around and the happy days chasing after the ice wagon, but we forget the frigid-mornings waiting for' the- coal stove to heat up, the burden of carrying out the ashes, the lack conveniences like electricity and air conditioning at home-and in school. For teen-agers, the though it much more, val- idity. It is closer, far more real and uncolcred by the sifting pro- cess of memory. Our survey shows that they look upon high school and college years as the happiest, and tend to view the long off re- tirement years as the unhappiest. Almost -without exception, these youngsters view the young un- married years as happy years and look with growing trepidation to the slow but sure approach of middle age. Happy or Not? For purposes of this survey, we asked them two questions: 1'. When you are old, what do you have been the hap- piest'period of your life? 2.

The wording enabled them to project themselves into the fu- ture and view the past as if it had already happened. Their opinions ranged over the whole span of life, from pre-school days to the retirement years, but for most, there was no time like the present or the immediate past: 37 per cent chose high school days as the happiest. 20 per cent chose College years. 23 per cent chose the young mar- ried' years.

High school age, according to 16-yesr-old Sheila Syring of Eu- gene, Ore., "is the time of most freedom and least responsibility. Everything is provided by your parents, leaving you free to pursue .many interests." Steve Gould, 15, of Webster of high school and college be- cause they contained their first experience with both love and life. As 15-year-old Julie Ellman of Lakewood, N. J., put it: "when you are young and courting, everything seems new and won- derful." Surprisingly, most of those who voted for the young married years as the happiest were under 17 and looking forward to what 16-year- old Garry Soss of Kenmore, N. Y., called "the happy, state of ob- livion that seems to engulf young married couples." Even middle age had its advo- cates. "By mused 15-year- old Sharon Bogiss of Webster Mo., "I will have seen my family grow up and be able to look back at all the things that happened during my life." The survey also turned up a teen-ager who could wait to re- tire.
