DC5 fanatic

Dear Miss Stavers,

I love the DAVE CLARK FIVE, but I haven’t heard too much about them lately. I really miss seeing them and hearing their records on the radio. Please tell me what they’ve been up to lately and print a recent photo of them. They are my all-time favs!

Priscilla Murray
Patterson, N.J.

Dear Priscilla,

The DC5 appeared in The Tom Jones Show twice this season. I hope you saw them, cos as usual—they were great! The group’s new Epic single is Paradise Is Half As Nice. Be sure to write to your fav radio station and ask them to play it. Get your friends to write too! Here’s a brand new pic of the DC5. As you can see—they are still one of the best-looking groups in the business!

Addresses & fax

Dear Miss Stavers,

Is it true that you can get a special booklet which has all of the stars’ addresses—and all of the facts on them—from 16? That’s what I heard—and I’m dying to get a copy!

Jane Pfeiffer
Grosse Pointe, Mich.

Dear Jane,

Yes, luv—it’s true! Just flip to Page 29 and follow the instructions (which goes for all other interested 16-ers too!).

Mark, Paul & Merv

Dear Miss Stavers,

I was really knocked out recently when MERV GRIFFIN presented MARK and PAUL with their 16 Gold Star Awards for “TV Personalities Of The Year” in his The Merv Griffin Show! MERV was so charming, and MARK and PAUL, as usual, were just adorable. Of course, 16 came through a winner (which it is!).

Hard-to-get records

Dear Miss Stavers,

It happens all the time. I have looked everywhere for SAJID’s Colgems LP and everywhere for Quentin’s Theme. I know that these records exist but I don’t know where to buy them. Can you help me?

Sharon Mailer
Houston, Texas

Dear Sharon,

Once again, Village Oldies is coming to the rescue. This is a terrific shop in Greenwich Village (in New York City) which also has a mail-order section for records. You can get SAJID’s LP (plus a free surprise gift of a beautiful color picture of SAJID) by sending $4—check or money order—to Village Oldies. Tell them you want Colgems LP SAJID—COS-114. If you want to order Quentin’s Theme, send $1 to Village Oldies and request Ranwood’s single record Quentin’s Theme—R-840. (By the way, the Blue Whale Theme is on the other side.) Be sure to print your order very clearly. If you would like one of Village Oldies’ free “Old Records Catalog,” be sure to include 25ยข (for handling and mailing) for each record you order from Village Oldies. And be sure to enclose a self-addressed STAMPED envelope. The correct address is Village Oldies, 149 Bleecker Street, New York City.

“BB” adorable?!

Dear Miss Stavers,

I just had to write and tell you how much I love the copy of 16’s Teen Star Birthday Book you sent me. It’s adorable!

Dear Mimsy,

Delighted you’re delighted! Anybody else who wants to be thrilled, turn to Page 13 and follow through!

Is Ceecee real?

Dear Miss Stavers,

I just love the adventures of Ceecee, but I have one question to ask. Is this lucky girl real? I mean, does she really exist? By the way, who writes Ceecee?

Linda Stockdale
Cleveland, Ohio

Dear Linda,

Ceecee isn’t a real person in the sense that you mean it. However, she is a very real composite of a typical young American teenage girl who has many of her wishes fulfilled. The story of Ceecee’s adventures is written by yours truly, Gloria Stavers.

Loves Enzo

Dear Miss Stavers,

I am slightly baffled about ENZO CERUSICO and his TV show My Friend Tony. I hear all about it and that it’s on NBC-TV, but I can’t find what time it’s on. I really dig ENZO. Could you tell me how I could see him?

Mary Ellen
Szper Clark, N.J.

Dear Mary Ellen,

ENZO’s series My Friend Tony is on NBC-TV on Sunday nights from 10 to 10:30 (EDT). The show will be in reruns until September, when it will be discontinued. But don’t worry. You’ll be seeing plenty of ENZO in the future, as he is moving to Hollywood—where he will be working in a new TV series and in motion pictures. You can write to him at Sheldon Leonard Productions, Paramount Gower, 780 N. Gower, Los Angeles, Calif.

Boys, boys, boys!!

Dear Miss Stavers,

All About Boys is the best advice on “boy problems” any girl could have! I consult my copy of it all the time—because boy, do I have boy problems!

Kathy Cooper
Lawrenceville, Mass.

Dear Kathy,

Thanks for writing. Think your enthusiasm might rub off on my other readers? Hope so! They can switch quick to Page 23 if they wanna get with All About Boys!

Monkee mad?!

Dear Miss Stavers,

I am desperate! I read in some yuk magazine that the MONKEES are true enemies, and I read in a weekly question-and-answer column in a newspaper that the MONKEES “clawed each other and split up enemies”. Please tell me the truth—I know I can trust 16!

Julia Hartman
Sanford, Fla.

Dear Julia,

PETER left the MONKEES to form his own group. They are called RELEASE and they are not signed to a record label as yet. PETER’s girl friend REINE STUART plays the drums in the group. DAVY, MICKY and MIKE are still very close friends to PETER, and they are also very close to one another. Anything you read saying that they hate each other is nothing but vicious gossip.

Bobby Sherman’s handwriting

Dear Miss Stavers,

I am an amateur at analyzing handwriting, and after reading the beautiful love letter BOBBY SHERMAN wrote in his own handwriting in the June issue, I decided to analyze his writing. Here are the results: BOBBY SHERMAN is very optimistic and ambitious. He’s quite an original thinker and he has a lot of artistic talent. He is a nonconformist with very good taste and judgment. He has strong physical drives, balanced by high ideals. He is easygoing, but will fight if necessary. He has great energy and drive, yet he is very gentle, friendly, gracious and modest.

Like “wow”!!

Dear Miss Stavers,

Got home from school today to find your groovy, gigantic set of pin-ups of all my fav stars waiting for me! WOW!!

Ann Hethrow
Miami, Fla.

Dear Ann,

Like I’ve always said—16 aims to please! All other readers take notice—and turn to Page 47!

Elvis fan club

Dear Miss Stavers,

I would appreciate it very much if, when you print the name and addresses of our Elvis Presley Fan Club, you would be sure to tell all of your 16 readers who want information on how to join—that they must enclose a self-addressed STAMPED envelope with their inquiries. Some of you 16-ers may not have gotten an answer from me when you wrote about joining. I simply cannot afford to buy 40 to 50 stamps a day! So, please—if you are interested in ELVIS—write to me but don’t forget to enclose a self-addressed STAMPED envelope for my reply!
