Junior Clients Compose Boy, if ! poke fun again at those characters known as "The Beatles," I hope the good Lord showers His wrath upon me! last week I innocently (!) referred to those screeching black mops from England as obnoxious and--zowie--the poor postman deluged'me with more pan mail than Liz Taylor. Wanna read just a sampling of my literate teenagers' thoughts? Here goes.... "What's the big idea oiling t h o s e d a r l i n g Beatles awfuR I hate you. Imagine calling these outstanding darling, cute guys obnoxious. I really despise you. I love the Beatles. Please do me a favor: Shut y o u r big. f a ' t ' m o u t h . " (signed) Peggy Seyler.

Dam you older people anyhowi Just because their hair is a little longer than yours, you have to ridicule them in your little column. I have news for you. Some of the male atrocities down at Malibu. Huntingtom. etc, weir their bleached hair down to their shoulders. Please stick to your limited field of · sports writing, buy your poor daughters a new TV and leave our Beatles alone." (signed) A l«-year-old Beatle Fan, AJMJC * * * ·AS FOR THE BEATLES' hair styles. 1 don't see any blue ribbons hanging out of your patch of hair. Fm not even sure you have that much. As for intelligence, I'm sure it would be a compliment for me to say your head is full of sawdust, since there isn't much more ia it The only thing I can figure out is that you're jealous and I would be. too, if I had a face lie yours." (signed) Marilyn Traw and Mary EHen McElroy, Compton. "I hate you and so does everyone in Long Beach. You RAT. calling the great Beatles obnoxious. Just because you're an old fojie and don't have the brains of an uneducated pig. that's no reason to caH the greatest, darling- est. cutest, best-singing group in the world disgusting. As far as I'm concerned you cart go crawl in a hole and die. It will be a great contribution to the world. Drop dead! In the envelope of this letter you found some onion peeling. Well, this is what we think of you--you stinkT (ilgned) Kathy }{. "1 hate you and so does every Beatle fan in California. You rat. you fiend, you old fogie. You sfwuld be ashamed of yourself. Unless you retract aH your untrue. · uncalled for. idiotic statements, every Beatle fan in California will write letters of protest and you just might be out of a job. I dare you to print this letter to show all the Beatle fans what kind of rat you are. Do n-.e a favor Put a plastic bag over your big. empty head." (signed) Mary T. * * * -WHAT RIGHT DO YOU HAVE to knock down the Beatles? So what if they don't comb their hair to please YOU? It pleases us and we're teenagers. We're who counts. Anyway, long hair is the style. The Beatles wouldn't be where they are today if it wasn't for their haircuts. It gives^'em such a cute, innocent, little boy took. It's the singing that counts, and they do sing good. but their hair helps. Ringo Starr may have ruined your \-acation, but your article ruined ours." (signed) Some Teenage Girls Protecting Their Idols. "I am a great fan of yours and read the majority of your views in Sports Merry-Go-Round and most always ' shared the same feelings--but not your comment on the ' Beatles. If. because of their originality, they sen a few . more records, that's ho-* they make their living. Of course. I guess it couldn't be compared with your line of work, printing your thoughts, good or bad, in newspapers ' where millions of gullible citizens read them." (signed) Irate. "1 think your column about the Beatles was disgusting. Besides, what's so great about that Bobo Wells you mentioned--and if I were a good football player, Td be proud to have a name like Ringo Starr. However,! don't blame you males for disliking them (even my brother doesn't) as most men your aje can't help being jealous about the head of hair that the Beatles boast." (signed) CaroJE. * * * FINAL NOTE: "No more Beatle pictures in your column, please. My 10-year-old jivester clips and pastes them around the house. What's the matter with you? Don't you like music?" (signed) Morry Rabin, Senior Citizen. · PERSONAL CONCLUSION: No more comments on the Beatles, no matter how ridiculous I still think they remain. Okay, girls? Beatles, ugh. Five times.
