Have you tried set-fill-column?

	C-x f runs the command set-fill-column, which is an interactive
	compiled Lisp function in `simple.el'.
	It is bound to C-x f.
	(set-fill-column ARG)
	Set `fill-column' to specified argument.
	Use C-u followed by a number to specify a column.
	Just C-u as argument means to use the current column.

To have the text in the centre of the screen you could create a new frame, 72 columns wide, and position it in the middle of the screen… Or split the frame into windows to reach the desired width for the central window…
