Once someone told me, “Don’t believe everything you read!” and I am beginning to see more and more truth to this! Some teen books you pick up and look at are absolutely revolting to see, let alone read! Half the stuff they print doesn’t hold an ounce of truth!

What really riles me are the things they have the nerve to print about the Monkees. I don’t see how the group themselves can stand to read the lies printed about them! Even my mother says that half of the stuff is made-up. It’s downright insulting, and many times even cruel!

I believe in a free press, but using it to hurt people’s feelings I don’t like at all! Your magazine, I’m happy to say, always tells the truth, and I hope you keep up the good work.

Recently I read where Davy likes to go to small towns he has never heard of. Why doesn’t he come to E. Paterson, New Jersey? We’ll be waiting for him!

Put the Monkees back in the jungle!

I am a Micky lover, so I got TIGER BEAT’s magazine on Micky Dolenz. I recommend it for anyone who is a true Micky fan. It tells anything you would want to know about him!

Thanks for your articles on the Cowsills! I think they’re the greatest, and they have a groovy sound! My parents even like them because of their family atmosphere. It’s nice to have a change once in a while. They can keep their style without being square. Please write more about them!

I’ve been reading Sally Field’s new column for TIGER BEAT, “Be My Friend” and I think it’s really groovy! It really brings out the feeling of friendship. Could you please tell me where to write to her?

We think Jay North is the neatest thing since the Monkees! We want more, more, more!

I think Micky’s curly hairstyle is great! I like it because it looks like cotton candy! I love cotton candy!

My girlfriend and I know that we will never be fortunate enough to meet the Monkees, so we have devised a little game to cheer us up. Maybe some of you readers can use it.

When we get the current issue of TIGER BEAT we look for all the Monkee photos. Then we try to think of what they were saying or thinking about when the picture was taken! This is even more fun if you pretend your favorite Monkee is saying something to you!

When Mark Lindsay came to San Jose to do a show here, he was really tired. He had just gotten off the bus after four hours of traveling and yet he waited for kids who wanted to get his autograph. Mark cares more than any other star!

I hear that Davy Jones is still looking for his ideal girl! Silly, he should come to Texas! To be more specific, New Braunfels, Texas! I’m sure he will find her there!

I got my Davy Jones’ hair pin and I take it everywhere with me! I take it to school, to church, and even to bed!

You’d better hurry and write Michael Graber for one while you can! I’m saving now for Micky’s, Peter’s and Mike’s. It’s the next best thing to having a Monkee with you!

The teens in Fox City and Green Bay, Wisconsin have just witnessed the worst thing ever to hit our TV screens! “Happening ’68” was taken off the air in our area. For just four short weeks we were able to enjoy Mark Lindsay and Paul Revere. It just isn’t fair! In their place we can now watch a crummy deal called “Farm Almanac!” It just isn’t fair!

Who says stars don’t write their fans? Two days ago I received a letter from Micky Dolenz, and about two weeks ago I received a letter from Steve Boone of the Lovin’ Spoonful! It may take a couple of months for you to get a letter from a star, but remember they have many other things to do besides write their fans. Be thankful if you have a letter from a star, even though it took a long time!

No offense, but Micky’s new hairstyle makes him look like a French poodle who hasn’t been combed for a month!

I luv Davy so-o-o-o much I go into crying fits over him. I call them my Davy attacks. Is there any scientific cure for this?

I just received my “Monkees Concert Album” and I can’t put it down! I love it, and the photos of the Monkees at different concerts are outasite!

No Monkee fan should be without this fab album. It’s the greatest!

Peter is the greatest thing since Davy Jones!

Hyannis, Mass.

I’m really getting sick and tired of hearing how much Davy loves his fans and wouldn’t do anything to hurt them. I know of about four girls who wrote in and said it breaks their hearts to see Davy with other girls. But just think how many beautiful girls you’ve seen Davy with in pictures!

Do you ever see Peter, Micky or Mike with girls in pictures? No, because they care if their fans get hurt or jealous. In my opinion Davy loves to see his fans get hurt and that’s why he probably just loves to have lots of pictures of him with girls in TIGER BEAT! Down with Davy!

Dino Martin was our favorite, but lately we’ve been reading things about him and older girls such as Tina Sinatra and others. We wouldn’t mind so much reading about him and his elderly girlfriends, but it hurts us very much when we also read that girls his own age BORE him!

Is Dino trying to lose all his devoted fans? We think he’s already lost his cool!

I say Sajid Khan is the one! I never saw eyes like his before! His smile really cracks my heart! Keep the stories and pics on him coming!

The other day my friend and I went to a store and there was a big picture of the Monkees on the wall. When we saw it we couldn’t resist it, so we asked the man there to give it to us. Well he did, and it created a problem because we both wanted it. So we decided that one week it is mine and the other week it is my friend’s. Wow! What a picture!

Please, please lay a breath of sweet hope into the wilted, blackened, bleeding hearts of the Monkees’ cherishing Pittsburgh fans! Tell us that they enjoyed their performance here in our city so much that they couldn’t wait to come back again this year! Please say they will because I’ll be having a conniption on the front row!

Did you ever notice in the pictures of Davy where he’s sitting in yellow flowers that his head looks unbelievably large? Could this be because he has bees in his hair making it go higher? Please explain!

I am so sick and tired of hearing all the time that Mike Nesmith should smile more, cut his sideburns, not wear a hat, etc. Mike is my favorite Monkee and I wouldn’t have him change for all the money in the world! I think he’s darling and wonderful just the way he is! And what he is is just plain GROOVY!

When Micky is on the show he always has a real neat outfit on, except that he wears white sneakers! I don’t have anything against sneakers, but I think he should wear boots or shoes with a swinging outfit!
