These people who write in and put down such top-ranking groups as the Beatles, Monkees, Raiders and Hermits are just too stuck up to realize what wonderful people these groups have!

Then there are those who put down the new groups such as the Cowsills, and the Ohio Express. They should wake up and think that, if there weren’t any new groups coming up there would be fewer new songs, and all we’d have is the old ones to look back on.

Please, let’s cut these protests out against the groups of today and those of tomorrow, because as long as there are people who like them, you’re going to have to accept them anyway!

Some suggestions on where to put your pictures:

  1. Tape to your curtains in your room.
  2. Tape inside and outside your closet door.
  3. Tape on dresser top and cover with plastic.
  4. Tape on lamps.

I realized this year that Micky’s hair looks square, Davy’s looks real groovy, Mike’s is too thick and his sideburns are too long and Peter’s hair is very, very stringy!

I just want to say that I think the relationship between Davy Jones and his dad is beautiful! If all teenagers had the same kind of relationship with their parents it would really be a peaceful world!

It’s a groovy kind of love, Davy. Keep it going!

Peter Tork has always been my fave Monkee until I found out he had been married and divorced! I was furious! I never thought Peter was that kind of person! So now Davy’s my fave Monkee.

I am madly in love with Ken Bloom of the Lewis and Clarke Expedition! He is so cute that he is constantly on my mind! I even dream about him!

Lynn Harper

I can’t stand it! I just dig Davy! Why, I even put lipstick on and kiss his pictures before I hang them on my wall!

I’m writing to tell you what a wonderful person Kurt Russell is! Recently I went with my family to Disneyland, and while we were on one of the rides I turned around to see who was behind me, and it was Kurt Russell! Through the whole ride I couldn’t take my eyes off him!

I had paper and pen ready to get his autograph, but when we got off the ride I made my brother do it because I was afraid. My brother also got his picture for me.

All I can say is Kurt is an outasite person. He was with his family and they all seemed so nice. Kurt, if you are reading this, I LOVE YOU!

I think a Twiggy cut is okay, but my whole family disagrees about my hair! My mother likes it in a Twiggy cut, my father likes it down to my shoulders, I’m crazy about a Monkee cut, and my brother likes it real long so he can pull it!

I can’t see why readers write in and ask such stupid questions, like “Is Dino ticklish?” Why should they care? They probably won’t ever get to see the star in person anyway!

I am really sorry to disappoint all of Davy’s fans, but it is best if I tell you now. I had my fortune told by a computer and it told me that I would marry Davy Jones and that we would get married in Manchester, England!

There’s something special about Mark Lindsay. I don’t know quite what it is, but of all the boys I know, none of them have it. It’s something that fills me with happiness and at the same time makes me want to cry my eyes out.

I love him ’cause he’s himself. And I’ll always love him, not because he’s a famous person (he could be a ditch-digger and I’d still feel the same) but because he’s Mark Lindsay.

And what makes him this unique person? It’s what’s inside him, in his heart and soul. That’s why I love Mark and I never want him to change! He makes me so happy the way he is.

Lindsay 4-Ever
Owensboro, Ky.

I remember I used to wish that I was taller, but now I’m glad I’m a mini-person! I usually don’t have to worry about guys being shorter than me.

I’m not knocking tall people. The point is that it really doesn’t matter whether you’re tall or short. There are many groovy tall people like Mark Lindsay, Mike Nesmith and Leonard Nimoy. But then there are many groovy mini-people like Sally Field, Davy Jones, Ringo Starr, and grooviest of all—Jon Provost!

Boy, am I ever mad at Herman and his Hermits! I don’t think they even care about their fans! When they appeared at our State Fair, my friends and I paid $4 each for tickets. At the beginning of the concert Herman said if anybody and/or object flew on the stage that they would leave.

Well, they weren’t onstage long enough for anyone to even look at them when a screaming moron jumped on the stage, so Herman and crew put down their instruments and left!

I used to love Herman’s Hermits, but I don’t anymore!

Terre Haute, Ind.

I have 72,654 pictures of the Monkees!!!
