2 Tt-rA-Ager THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER Saturday, November 9, 1968 Our Readers Write The To the Editor: This year the Hyde Park-Mt. Lookout Teen Center will attempt an unprecedented program of live entertainment for all teens in the area. As you know, we brought The Vanilla Fudge to Cincinnati recently, and on November 30 we will present The Grateful Dead in two public concerts. Later on we hope to bring other nationally-known groups to town. This will probably be the last midwest concert for the group, since they are breaking up in December.' When our Teen Center first opened there was some criticism that all area teens could not take part. But everyone is welcome to attend these concerts. The two shows on November 30 are scheduled for 7:30 and 10 p. m. Tickets are $3.50 per person, and can be purchased in advance at the Center, 2753 Erie Avenue in Hyde Park. Since people were turned away at The Vanilla Fudge concert, we suggest concert goers buy their tickets ahead of time, for guaranteed admittance. On November 29 we will sponsor two concerts by The Grateful Dead for members and their guests. Sincerely, D. J. Weber Hyde Park-Mt. Lookout Teen Center Thanks! To the Editor: I'm 16 and would like to thank you for the chance to vote for my presidential choice. Not everyone gives teen-agers an opportunity to express their opinions about such important subjects! I'm sure a lot of other teens are grateful, too. Thanks, Donna Schneider 1288 Beech Avenue Cincinnati, Ohio 45205 Should they try? To the Editor: Is it possible for an all-girl musical group to get anywhere in this city? We are a group of girls that really enjoys music, but we don't want to knock ourselves out practicing, etc., if there is no future for us here. What do you think? Sincerely, The Feather Flame 2148 Forestlake Dr. Cincinnati, Ohio 45244 (An all-girl group is unusual, Feather Flame, but that's no reason to stop trying. The Mod Trends were certainly popular, until they broke up because of marriages, etc. Give it a go, and keep in touch. Maybe we can help with a picture-story. Ed) Write her To the Editor: Would you please mention in Teen-Ager that a pen pal is desired by Greek-speaking, 19 year old Helene Cokkinas, Pythagoras 5, Lioumi, Egaleo, Greece. I hope one of your readers will write to her. Mrs. CR. Butler 8330 Fatulla Lane Cincinnati, Ohio 1 5242 Grateful Where fire they? To the Editor: What ever happened to the Washington Steamboat? Did they break up? I thought they were the greatest! Could you give us some information on where they will be playing, if they are still together? Barb Trice 2388 Aquarius Dr. Cincinnati, Ohio 45231 (We haven't heard from the group lately, Barb. Maybe they'll check in soon and let us know what they're doing. Ed) Doug's shocked To the Editor: I was shocked to read Jim Knippenberg's recent column, in which he claimed that the Association is "trying ... to erect audio monuments to their ever undulating glands." This is completely stupid! The Association is undoubtedly more melodic than The Doors, Country Joe and The Grateful Dead. Also, there is probably no song more symbolically significant than "Requiem for the Masses." All of their songs, "Never, My Love," "Along Comes Mary," and "Cherish," have a point, if you just listen. I receive The Enquirer daily because I am from Cincinnati and plan to transfer to UC later this year. Doug Blackman, 5852 E. North St., Tucson, Arizona. Some order! To the Editor: Would you please print a list of places for teens to go on Friday and Saturday nights? I know you include a column on school plays and dances, but I'd like to know about some of the teen nightclubs in Cincinnati. Is it possible for you to compile a list of unusual things for teens to do at night, something besides bowling or going to a movie? Minda Hart, 1239 Rossmore Ave., Cincinnati, Ohio 45237 (Wow, Minda! You're asking for a big ordera list of unusual things for teens to do. But we'll put our best reporters on it, and try to come up with a few printable suggestions. As for teen clubs, there aren't too many hereabouts, just The Cellar in Forest Park, and the Hyde Park-Mt. Lookout Teen Center. Both are open weekends. Ed) Go to Dayton To the Editor: I just want to tell your readers I think they should go to Dayton Sunday night (November 10) to see Paul Revere and the Raiders and Cincinnati's own Heywoods. It would be fun to get a crowd together for the trip. I saw them last Thursday in Indianapolis, and even peked in at their buses, complete with ten i bunks each, a table, color J TV set and stereos. The concert was really cool. J I know some of the Hey- woods fly in after such concerts, so they can attend , Dead school. Would you happen to know where I could write to them? Thanks, Janice Blair, Lawrenceburg, Indiana (You can write to The Heywoods, in care of Mrs. Bea Donaldson, 5554 Gold-enrod Dr., Cincinnati, Ohio 45239, Janice. Ed) Jimi scares Joe To the Editor: I've noticed the advertisement in The Enquirer recently for the Jimi Hen-drix concert November 15 and can only say this.

I'm not so sure I want to see him, even though I attend most rock concerts in town. Thanks, Joe Sharp, Terrace Park, Ohio (Don't let Jimi's looks scare you away, Joe.
