PSSSSST! Hey, true-believers! It’s me, “Dreamy”—the coolest key-keeper and gate grrrrr-uardian on this side of the solar system. I just peeped behind the Dreamsville gates myself—and it almost blew my mind! It’s enough to make a guy quit his job and start writin’ letters to Dreamsville himself!

Wow, what a passel of groovy goodies are waiting inside this time! Check the names on the next page, cos they may be waiting for you! If your name is there—just board the elevator and push the button marked Dreamsville, where your own personal, air-conditioned cloud awaits! If we missed you this time—don’t give up the ship! Just keep sockin’ those letters to me, and sooner or later I’ll be opening the gates for YOU! There’s plenty of room for everyone in Dreamsville!

If you’d like to know how to get to Dreamsville—just read the E-Z instructions below.

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. All it costs is just one 6ยข stamp—nothing else! Your Dreamsville gift is absolutely free!

FLAMIN’ FIREPLACES!! Here we are again in that brain-blasting new section of Dreamsville that I call Super-Dream! It is permanently reserved for 16 readers who have an “extra-special” dream! If you’ve been wishing for something so wild that you thought it would be impossible for even Dreamsville to supply—you’re on the right cloud!! Nothin’ is too tough for SUPER-DREAM—just look at what this month’s winner won!!

ZANOLA PARKER of Seaside, Calif., has been a Sajid Khan standard-bearer ever since he rode his first elephant—and ZANOLA had almost given up hope of ever winning something from him. Sajid heard her call and rushed to her rescue by sending her a beautiful autographed picture, a personal handwritten letter, and he also took off and autographed one of his favorite fun hats, sent along a string of love beads, an adorable gift from exotic India, a groovy picture book all about himself, an autographed copy of the MGM LP Maya, and a portable radio–record player to play it on!! Let’s give a special 16 salute to ZANOLA—cos she wrote over 100 letters to Dreamsville and didn’t give up hope!! Eventually, Dreamsville or SUPER-DREAM will get to you! I kid you not!

Reserved for Debby Robbins of Portland, Ore., by Leonard Whiting:

The gates are wide open, Debby—slide right in! All the arrangements were made by a handsome young man named Leonard Whiting. Len checked out your cloud, had an ornate balcony installed (for Shakespearean day-dreaming) and left a few cloud-warming presents just for you! You’ll find a grr-oovy, personally autographed picture of Len, a personally autographed menu (a souvenir of his very first New York visit), several photographs from Romeo And Juliet and a portable radio. Welcome to the winner’s club! Dreamsville never fails!

Dashing Davy Jones is responsible for your all-expense, first-class Dreamsville excursion, Betty! Davy dropped by Zilch (the coolest clothing store in New York) and picked out a string of love beads, a mod wristwatch, autographed a large picture of himself, and (just for a bonus) sent along his very own striped blue pullover shirt to remind you of him! It’s all for you, Betty—so fluff up some fleece, smile-a-mile and stay-a-while! Chalk up another score for Dreamsville!

Reserved for Marion Mok of Kowloon, Hong Kong, by Mark Lindsay:

Makes no difference where in this world of ours you live, kiddies—Dreamsville is just a step away! Betcha thought Hong Kong was too far away to ever take a Dreamsville trip, didn’t you, Marion?? Well, thanks to Mark Lindsay, you were wrong! Mark did his bit for groovy international relations by sending you a huge, personally autographed picture, an autographed copy of the latest Raider single record, a handwritten letter, and his very own American Indian thunderbird medallion! Enjoy, Marion—enjoy!!

Grenda SueChris Jones heard that you’ve been running “wild in the streets” ever since you saw the movie, and he felt that he just had to do somethin’ before you wore yourself out!! Chris personally autographed a photograph of himself, sent along a copy of the Wild In The Streets soundtrack record on Tower, and made you a charter member of his gang, by sending you a peace symbol like the one he wears!! Now, please sit down and relax a little, Grenda Sue—if you start “runnin’ wild” in Dreamsville, you might space out the other guests!

Trippy Todd of the Nazz knocked himself out to make your first Dreamsville stay a memorable one, Debbie—cos this is Todd’s first trip too! Todd personally autographed a photograph of himself, got his fellow Nazz members to autograph a group picture and a copy of their very first SGCI-LP—The Nazz, wrote a personal letter and sent along an unusual American Indian donkey bead necklace that he picked out for you at Siderial Time (a flippy Los Angeles clothing store). Don’t worry, Debbie—I’ll help you carry all your loot, cos nobody should strain in Dreamsville!

Reserved for Greg Zizza, Jr., of New York, N.Y., by Gloria Stavers:

Greg—a little bird told us that you’ve been walking around in a cloud of gloom ever since your record-player gave up the ghost!! (The same bird said that it was an antique, anyway!) 16 Magazine’s glamorous Editor-in-Chief, Gloria Stavers, couldn’t stand to see a music-luvver without a turntable, so she sent you ten assorted LP records, a combination radio–record player to spin them on, and a full year’s free subscription to swingin’ 16! Dreamsville goes all the way—for you!!
