21A is 257
16D and 3A both show 18A<72, if different 18A<69
1A is surrounded by numbers that only have 2's and 3's as factors because n^2-1=(n-1)*(n+1)

I found this one MUCH easier than one I did a few months ago....only took me a few hours off and on.

Now lets hope I submitted the right sum

2 hints:
34A; Proth Numbers
14D: Triperfect number
