P« 9 « C-7-1NDEPHJDEW .i, ti:j. »_». ti nu I1ANI HOILLVGWOEIII- luntnt Jj«u itltt The Qienls Unwind Sports and The Beatles are a strange mixture, but the reaction this department continues to receive on the British mop-top singers (?) has been something to behold. A simple comment here two weeks ago rrovoked more controversy than if I had slandered the lovable Dodgers or called Billie Jean Moffitt a witch. Publication of Beatles* fans irate letters last week only poured gas on the flames. Highlight of the hubbub was a !30-signature letter that made me wonder what makes teenage girls tick. I wouldn't dare print the letter--containing signatures cf such lasses as Kresta Madson. Maria Sims, Kathy Spicer, Susie Oster, Maria Sue Farhill and 125 others--because I'n certain that 130 sets cf parents would take their little darlings to the woodshed immediately. Howsoever, I think the intelligent clientele might be interested in knowing that some people (including teenagers) are standing behind the old Merry-Go-Rounder. Thus, sports fans, get a load of some of the anti-Beatle ammunitions *I have been a loyal fan of your column and have always been impressed with your courage to print what you feet However, I fear you may be backing down on the issue of The Beatles. Therefore, to prove your courage to me and all your loyjl fans, I ask that you print the following in your column. *1 am SS years old and am in no way jealous of The Beatles. I simply feel they have little or no talent, . they are in no sense cf the word exceptionally good-looking, and their hair-do's are just ridiculous. My girl friend feels the same way and so do many of her friends. So, don't worry tbout no-account letters from people who rarely strain themselves enough to turn the radio on, let alone read your column."" (signed) John Murray, 831 EocDd Ave. (How's that (or starter*?) * * * ·I AGREE with you 100 per cent. The BeatJes are the most obnoxious idiots I have ever seen. I thought American teenagers had some sense. It wouldn't be so bad if the kids }ust went wiM ovtr them, but those English clods make fun of the screaming girls. Wise up, kids, your idols are making fun of you. Keep blasting those ignorant English clods. I am on your side and so are most of the sane." (signed) Chuck, Lon; Beach.

A note to (two of your antagonists) Marilyn Traw and Mary Ellen McEIroy of Compton: YOU are the ones that have sawdust in your heads for acting so juvenile. If you only knew what you look like to the few of us who are SANE." (signed) Louise B, 4817 Ashnrortn SL, Lakewood. The Beatles are just another fad in our capitalistic society which plays at the heart-strings of the gullible little teenage chicks. The parents are the ones who suffer when they start paying through the nose for Beatle records, Beatle wigs. etc. Send the Beatles back into the crevices of whatever they came from." (signed) John Cash, A Senile 20-year-old, 42S W. 17th St. "WE EXTEND our deep sympathies to your recenl harassment by Beatle lovers. We are in full agreement with you, that is, until you start "beatling" the Dodgers. Contrary to popular belief (via text), the Beatle hairdo is not a modem development. Student Outlook's research indicates it may be as old as man himself. Java man, who some say roamed the earth about the year 500,000 B.C wore an embryonic Beatle. But it was Neanderthal man (50JOOO B.C) who appears to have developed the first rea Beatle, forerunner of the one displayed by Ringo Starr (By the way, Beatle Ringo wins the first prize for mosi likeliness to the Java man.)" (signet!) J. A. Wilson. AIic E. Scanlon and James P. Scanlon, 11631 Kathy SI, West minster. (The lost statement of the Sconlons end Mr. Wilson bear* more weight when accompanied by a picture of the Java Alan. Even though the 500.000 B.C. man bears a striking resemblance to Rcatle Ringo, I don't dare portray it in thii newspaper. It would" horrify even the most feartest reader.) "THIS IS THE first time I've ever written to a newspaper in my 45 years, but may I say your column on a timely, atrocious subject. The Beatles, was something that should far transcend the sports pages. (My own teenagers even agree.) It is refreshing to turn to a sports section once in awhile and read something ether than batting averages, rebounds or track meet times. Congratulations, *nd if you need help beating off the Beatle firs, count on me." (lijnrd) Ray Jenkins, Toiranct. Tns glad you had the nerve to publish those pro- Beatle letters.
