JAKARTA FIGHTS OVERCROWDING IN BALI AND JAVA
This village of 4,000 in the swampy region southwest of the provincial capital of Palembang in Sumatras Lampung Province is what is known as a transmigration village, an agricultural settlement established as a new home for Indonesians who were willing to leave the overcrowded islands of Java or Bali. Dozens of these villages exist on the outer islands, particularly Sumatra, Kalimantan and the Celebes, and this year the Government ambitiously plans to move 100,000 Indonesians. We will reach this target if we judge from our experience in 1980, said President Suharto in his budget message the other day.

TEETH, WONDER WOMAN AND THE SOUL OF BALI
THE BAYEUX TAPESTRY. Introduced by David M. Wilson. (Knopf, $75.) Whoever designed the Bayeux tapestry nine centuries ago was one of the greatest narrators ever to tell a story. In pictures and words this embroidered linen strip 20 inches high and 230 feet long tells the story of the conquest of England by William of Normandy in 1066 so gracefully and clearly that few accounts of any historical event can match the swiftness of its narrative or its power over ones emotions. As a viewer watches the story unfold, the rich and tumultuous life of 11th-century nobles and their armies fills the imagination and when the Battle of Hastings finally comes into view the action becomes startlingly dramatic. The epic elevation and dignity of this great work lift the spirit; vanquished and conquerors alike move with energy one can feel across the centuries, they fight without treachery and their nobility endows the final battle with tragic grandeur. Brilliant photographs made several years ago when the tapestry was removed from its casing in its Bayeux museum for cleaning have been assembled in 146 consecutive pages by Sir David Wilson in a magnificent book that displays the tapestry in greater clarity, at times, than one can see it in the museum. Sir David, the director of the British Museum, also provides clear, brief commentaries on the events depicted in the tapestry as well as on the people and action in each picture. His appendixes on society, customs and buildings of the era convey his enormous learning with engaging good humor.

$25 AND UNDER; Spicy Indonesian Nights
ONE hot summer night, during a fruitless search for kaffir lime leaves in Chinatown, my girlfriend and I stopped in an Indonesian grocery where she swore shed seen them before. The lead was a bust, except for some frank advice from the shopkeeper: we asked where we could find a great Indonesian restaurant, and he unflinchingly replied, Indonesia. His abrupt pronouncement put me off the scent for a little while. A disappointing trip to a newly opened spot in Elmhurst, Queens, made me think he might be right. I eventually got to thinking that while traveling to Indonesia to eat Indonesian food might be workable if you occasionally drop in on relatives there, it wasnt going to work out for me. But there are a handful of places in the city that do a capable job scratching an itch for satay. Warteg Fortuna A bare sliver of a restaurant stuck between a tire yard and a barbed-wire-rimmed lot, Warteg Fortuna is almost directly under the No. 7 trains 52nd Street stop on a particularly unscenic block in Woodside. Theres no menu, just a bulletin board with a couple of dishes and prices, and no tables, just six stools along the walls. Almost everybody is eating the house specialty, combination plates of rice dotted with different curries ($3.75)..
