DID THEY LIVE UP TO ’EM?—Here are the New Year’s resolutions which THE MONKEES made in FLIP exactly a year ago. “I will not make any more stupid New Year’s resolutions.”—MICKY. “I will wash my hat whether it needs it or not.”—MIKE. “I will faithfully resolve (or have I already?) to be a better musician and less of a loudmouth.”—PETER. “I’ll save my money if I have it or not. I’ll take two showers a day instead of one.”—DAVY.
MARK LINDSAY’S DOODLES—Last month, MARK drew some doodles, which CAROL DECK, our Hollywood Editor, cheerfully analyzed. This month, that precious sheet of doodles can be yours! Just tell us why you’d like it, and you may become the winner of this mini-contest! Mark will personally inscribe the doodles to the winner, and mail them directly to you! Send your letter to: Doodles, On The FLIP Side, 1010 Third Avenue, New York, N.Y. 10021.
