You’re Telling Me

From Gloria Stavers

I want to assure each and every one of you who has ever written a letter to me, at 16 Magazine, that every single letter is read and that careful consideration is given to everything you write. I’m sure you understand that there isn’t enough space in my magazine for me to publish every letter and that there simply isn’t enough time for me to answer every letter personally. But please know that I’m deeply grateful to you for writing me and that I appreciate every suggestion and criticism you address to me. Write to me as follows: Miss Gloria Stavers, 16 Magazine, 745 Fifth Avenue, New York, N.Y. 10022.

Snoopy luvvers

Dear Miss Stavers,

Please print a picture of the ROYAL GUARDSMEN, who sing Snoopy Vs The Red Baron, and tell me where I can write to them.

Sandi Cone
West Middlesex, Pa.

Dear Sandi,

You can write to the ROYAL GUARDSMEN in care of Laurie Records, 35 W. 45th St., New York City.

London’s latest export

Dear Miss Stavers,

I have heard of a groovy singer from London named DAVID GARRICK. Can you give me any information about him?

Lynn Denby
Chicago, Ill.

Dear Lynn,

DAVID GARRICK is a super-gorgeous British singer who will soon be coming to this country. He will be recording here on Epic Records and you can write to him in care of Bill Smith, 231 E. 47th st., New York City.

Davy & Mark fan

Dear Miss Stavers,

When I opened my Super Giant Pin-ups, I was so happy I almost cried. They’re all great, but the ones of DAVY JONES and MARK LINDSAY are really the ginchiest!

Joy Senter
New York City

Dear Joy,

Glad you’re glad. Any others who would like to get turned on to super-giant-pin-up gladness, turn to Page 55.

Cryan Shames

Dear Miss Stavers,

Please run a picture of the CRYAN SHAMES and tell me where I can send them a letter. I think they’re the greatest thing since ice cream.

Jane Adams
Hobart, Ind.

Dear Jane,

Your word is my command. Here’s your pic and you can write to the CS in care of Columbia Records, 51 W, 52nd St., New York City.

Micky’s right age

Dear Miss Stavers,

I’m all mixed up. In your MICKY DOLENZ story in the February issue, you printed that he was born in 1948 and his sisters’ ages were different from what I thought they were. Could you please straighten me out?

Denise Wagner
San Francisco, Calif.

Dear Denise,

The printer really goofed on MICKY’s story. MICKY was born in 1945; Coco is 17, DEBBIE is 8, and GINA is 6 years old. Sorry about that, but thanks for your letter.

Color you pink

Dear Miss Stavers,

I’ve been feeling just rosy ever since I received the Color Wallet Photos I ordered from 16. I mean, they’re so absolutely adorable I’m happy all over!

Susan Wells
Philadelphia, Pa.

Dear Susan,

Let’s hope some of that lovely color rubs off on other 16 readers. They can get it just by turning to Page 31!

Return of Kurt Russell

Dear Miss Stavers,

I just saw KURT RUSSELL in Follow Me, Boys, and I think he is beautiful. Does he have a fan club?

Linda Sprague
Lewiston, Maine

Dear Linda,

Write to KURT in care of Disney Studios, 500 S. Buena Vista, Burbank, Calif.

Dave Clark’s brother

Dear Miss Stavers,

I’ve heard that DAVE CLARK has a brother named JOHN. Could you please run a picture of him?

Sondra Rogers
St. Louis, Mo.

Dear Sondra,

Here’s the one and only picture of DAVE’s brother, JOHN CLARK. He is 25 years old and slightly shorter and fairer than his famous younger brother.

Smitty’s folks

Dear Gloria,

I’m MIKE SMITH’s aunt and I take great pride in how popular “SMITTY” has become. I love all your stories about him and the RAIDERS in 16. Please run this picture of MIKE’s GRANDMOTHER SMITH as an example of how we all feel about our famous relative and your wonderful magazine.

Mrs. Myrtle Strong
Tigard, Ore.


Dear Miss Stavers,

I really would like to know everything about the MONKEES that there is to know. Would you suggest one book that would clue me on every bit of MONKEE-business that exists?

Tracy Vance
Boston, Mass.

Dear Tracy,

Fast as you can, turn to Page 17. There you’ll find out how to get The Word—for real and for true—on DAVY, MICKY and PETER.

Guillotines score

Dear Miss Stavers,

I saw the GUILLOTINES recently on tour with the RAIDERS and I flipped over them. Would you please run a picture of them so the world can see my favorite group?

Karin Smith
Albuquerque, N. Mex.

Herman hater

Dear Miss Stavers,

I hate HERMAN. He’s a drag and he can’t sing. Why do you keep putting him in 16? I say out with HERMAN and the HERMITS!

Rita Taylor
New Orleans, La.

Dear Rita,

Like I always say, you’re entitled to your opinion, but I think you ought to look and listen a little closer to HERMAN and his HERMITS. They’re super-lively, super-talented and super-good-looking. If you don’t believe me, ask any growing girl.

Sweethearts for sale

Dear Miss Stavers,

I’m thrilled about my copy of 16’s Secret Sweetheart Book you sent me. My favorite sweethearts are MARK and FANG, but I love the others too!

Midge Darby
Glenolden, Pa.

Dear Midge,

You’re a sweetheart for writing such sweet words. Anybody else looking for a Secret Sweetheart? See Page 59!
