If you want to learn how to get to Dreamsville—read below!

All of these—and more—are waiting for some lucky 16-ers. Look to the right and see if your dream came true!

What is Dreamsville? Chickadee, Dreamsville is that place way up yonder where dreams come true like they were never fulfilled before—and the pure ecstasy might just flip you out and onto a cloud so high you may never make it back to mother earth again!

If you’re ready to make the trip, hang on—and heed this! Write a letter—a simple, easy, one-page letter—to 16 Magazine telling exactly what special delight you are longing to get from your very favorite teen star. If we possibly can (and be assured: 16 stops at nothing!), we’ll see that you get exactly what you dreamed about!

Hard to believe? Well, then, just take a look at the facing page. Each girl whose name and home town is printed there is a 16 reader who made a wish, dreamed a dream or yearned for something very special—and got it when 16 hauled her aboard our jet express to Dreamsville.

You can wing off to Dreamsville just as easily! Just write a short letter (on one side of the sheet only!) telling what you would dearly love to have. Could be a personal phone call—or a personal letter—from your favorite star. Could be a personal keepsake from your dream guy. Could be a pin-up portrait personally autographed by your grooviest group. Could be a whole set of recordings from the top of the charts. Could be any number of delicious things. It’s your request—so you name it. Jot it down on a sheet of paper and mail it to the address below:

“Dreamsville”
16 Magazine
Box 218
Brooklyn, N.Y. 11202

After you’ve mailed your letter, don’t fail to get every issue of 16 Magazine and watch the Dreamsville answers page—because that’s where you’ll see the glorious news that everything you wished for, dreamed of, longed for has come true!

Davy Jones swung the gates of Dreamsville wide open for SABRINA BISHOP of LAWTON, OKLA. Davy sent her a large, personally autographed picture of himself, a handwritten note and a soopa-surprise gift that he picked out just for her!

GWEN CHANNELL of SPRING VALLEY, OHIO, should be in Dreamsville by now. She shares the same birth-sign as Mark Lindsay. They were both born under the sign of Pisces. Mark sent GWEN a medallion on a gold chain with the sign of Pisces on one side and “To Gwen, with love—Mark” on the other. Mark also sent along a handwritten note especially for her.

Monkee fan RUTH DUNWELL of CHEYENNE, WYO., had a big problem. Her father is in the United States Air Force and has been assigned to duty in Turkey. RUTH was excited about living in a foreign country until she found out that they don’t have any television in Turkey! That means no Monkees! Peter Tork, her personal fave, dried her eyes by sending her one of his very one [sic] scripts from the TV show, a handwritten note, and a personally autographed picture of himself. You won’t be too lonely now, will you RUTH? Dreamsville does it again!

Happy Herman of the Hermits knocked LESLEY NUDELMAN of PORTLAND, ORE., for a lovely loop. Herman sent her a personally handwritten note, a huge autographed picture of the Hermits and a sterling silver necklace with his picture on it. Stop turning cartwheels, LESLEY, you’re still not dreaming! Dreamsville makes your dreams come true!

BRENDA GAYLE BRADFORD of WILLIAMSBURG, KY., has staked a claim on Cloud 9, thanks to Dino, Desi & Billy. The “thrilling three” personally autographed a picture of themselves and her favorite, dashing Dino Martin, sent along a special gift and a handwritten note to show the world that the gift is the real “McCoy.” Dreamsville strikes again!

MELINDA KREISSLER of INDEPENDENCE, MISS., is a dyed-in-the-wool James Darren fan. She not only admires his acting ability, but she’s just wild about his singing. Jimmy climbed out of the Time Tunnel long enough to send MELINDA an autographed picture of himself, a copy of his latest LP and a bottle of his favorite perfume! How’s that for a slam-bang dream come true?

HELEN HAIDER of INGLEWOOD, CALIF., had quite a problem. She has 94 single records and 20 record albums and no record player to play them on! Gloria Stavers, Editor-in-Chief of 16 Magazine, came to HELEN’S rescue by sending her a brand new portable record player, a year’s free subscription to swingin’ 16 and five brand new LPs for her collection. Who said dreams don’t come true? They do in Dreamsville!
