You’re Telling Me

I want to assure each and every one of you who writes a letter to me at 16 Magazine that your letter is delivered to me personally. I want to assure you too that I read every single letter I receive, that I’m grateful to you for writing to me and that I appreciate every suggestion and criticism you address to me. There isn’t enough space in 16 Magazine for me to publish every letter I receive and there isn’t enough time for me to answer every letter personally—but please keep writing and look for your letter and my answer each month in You’re Telling Me!

Address all of your letters as follows: Miss Gloria Stavers, c/o 16 Magazine, Business Office, 745 Fifth Avenue, New York, N.Y. 10022.

Dear Miss Stavers,

Please print a picture of SPOONFUL JOE BUTLER and his recent bride LESLIE VEGA. They were married on September 2 in Southampton, L.I., and I would love to see what LESLIE looks like.

Doris Brown
Miami, Fla.

Dear Miss Stavers,

I saw The Happiest Millionaire and fell madly in love with JOHN DAVIDSON. Where can I write to him?

Gladys Bradley
Tulsa, Okla.

Dear Gladys,

Here is a picture of JOHN. You can write to him at Disney Productions, 500 S. Buena Vista, Burbank, Calif.

Dear Miss Stavers,

How could you?! In the January issue of 16 you gave Star Trek’s address as ABC. It’s NBC!

Cindy Cassady
Orlando, Fla.

Dear Cindy,

Right you are. The printer goofed! You can write to your fave Star Trekers at NBC-TV, Hollywood, Calif.

Dear (?) Miss Stavers,

Why don’t you throw yourself into a flaming lava pit and take smelly old 16 with you? As far as I’m concerned, 16 is triple-ick and the same goes for those four finky globs called the MONKEES. They can’t sing, act or even speak English! I dare you to print this letter.

Donna Duncanson
Portland, Ore.

Dear Donna,

Wow!! You’ve really got a hate on for 16 Magazine and the MONKEES! I really am sorry that you don’t like 16—and those four fab guys. Please tell me what we have done to make you so angry at us. We really do try to please. Where did we fail you?

Dear Miss Stavers,

Please print this picture I took of two of my faves, DESI and DINO, recently when they appeared in Lincoln, Neb. DD&B were here late last summer and I found out where they were staying, knocked on their door and asked if I could take this picture. They were as nice as could be. How could anyone call them snobs?

Suzanne Poole
Lincoln, Neb.

Dear Miss Stavers,

I saw CHRIS CROSBY on The Merv Griffin Show and flipped over him. I love his Atlantic single Hippie Lullaby. How can all we CHRIS-crazy-zees get him on The Ed Sullivan Show?

Yolona Broyard
New Orleans, La.

Dear Yolona,

You CHRIS-crazy-zees who are dying to see CHRIS on The Ed Sullivan Show should write to Mr. Sullivan at 524 W. 57th St., New York City, and tell him so.

Dear Miss Stavers,

I think FREDDY WELLER is the sweetest, cutest RAIDER there ever was. He’s not only beautiful to look at, but he’s loaded with charm. Please tell me where I can write to FREDDY.

Terry Land
Marmora, N.J.

Dear Terry,

You’re 100% right about sweet ’n luvly FREDDY. You can write to him at 9126 Sunset Blvd., Hollywood, Calif., and if you put “I Am A 16 Reader” on your envelope, you can be sure that you will get an answer from FREDDY—and him alone.

Dear Miss Stavers,

I opened my mailbox this morning and found my Monkee Wallet Photos and Monkees: Our Favorite Pix inside. I can’t thank you enough for creating both of these wonderful goodies. My wallet is a Monkee gallery and I am still hung-up looking at their favorite pix!

Betsy Samson
Utica, N.Y.

Dear Betsy,

So glad you’re happy. Any other MONKEE maniacs should fast turn to Pages 9 and 53.

Dear Miss Stavers,

Where, oh where, can I write to marvelous MARK SLADE of High Chaparral?

Barbara Drew
Chicago, Ill.

Dear Barbara,

Write to MARK in care of NBC-TV, Hollywood, Calif. Mention 16—and you’ll get a pronto reply.

Dear Miss Stavers,

Please print the enclosed picture I took of JIM MORRISON after a recent concert at Cal State. Believe me when I tell you that JIM and the DOORS are absolutely hypnotic! I’ve never seen, heard, nor met anyone like them before! Wow!

Cathie Camocho
Los Angeles, Calif.

Dear Cathie,

JIM sends a personal “thank-you” just to you. You can write to JIM and the DOORS at 8721 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, Calif.

Dear Miss Stavers,

I am flying high over a brand new guy! His name is DAVID CANARY and he plays “Candy” on Bonanza.

Darlene Harris
Baldwin, Fla.

Dear Darlene,

You can write to DAVID CANARY at NBC-TV, Hollywood, Calif. Here is a groovy pic of him.
