That dynamic group Sweet Sensation, (see lead singer, Marcel King, below) recently released their first album, called simply "Sweet Sensation" ... so if you love their sound, keep an eye open for it 'cos we reckon it's pretty good.! And if you're keen to see 'em in action watch your local paper and billboards for dates, 'cos tho' they're not doing a set tour, the lads are playing gigs all round the country right now.

Add a bit of a shine to your neckline with this .double stranded necklace! It's by Corocraft and costs 95p. You can get it from good department stores throughout the country. Looks good with summer dresses. too.



Elton John (seen below, in heavy disguise) is busy planning big things for all us pop fans next month. On June 21st he's hoping to put on a twelvehour concert at the Wembley Stadium. It promises to be a bit of a once-in-a-lifetime experience - which explains why the tickets cost £4 a head! For that you get Elton, the KOO Dee Band, The Eagles, Joe Walsh, hopefully Stevie Wonder (above). and more! The concert will begin at 12 noon and is scheduled to end around 11 p.m. We reckon it's gonna be one of the summer's big events!

Well, you've got to admit it's pretty flattering! This Jamie portrait is by Elaine Fox of Wokingham.

"I didn't believe what I'd read in the papers about fans being injured when they went to see their idols at concerts," Lorraine of Northern Ireland wrote in to us, "Until 1 went to one myself, that is ... "I was in the queue wai ting outside. when suddenly the door opened. Of course, there was a great rush ... and then we heard a scream. "A girl was lying on the ground and everyone was just trampling over her. The First Aid people had difficulty getting to her 'cos of the crush. "I think individual groups should make sure that there are adequate safety precautions at their concerts, so that accidents like this could be avoided." Have you got q special




The whole 01 London knew about Eden East 7, the trendy I department store, the most successfu I around. They also knew about the private rooftop garden on top of the great building. But nobody knew about the girl whose private world it was ...


No wonder BiU Oddie (the bearded lead singer) wrote the "Funky Gibbon" song ... Apparently he's absolutely knocked out by apes and often goes tGtbe zoo on his days off - so be's got first-hand experience as to how that funky gibbon dance should go, step-by-step!


Elton got a sbock when he walked into bis haD the Qth'elmorning ... his stuffed leopard's gnasbers were missing! Had a tooth-yanking dentist gone mad? No, one of his mates bad just painted 'em black.


Pilot have got a new craze pogo sticks! "We never travel by foot now" Dave Paton told us. "We go by pogo - it's mucb quicker and a right laugh. We don't half get some funny looks tho'."


Hands up all tbose folk who tbought we'd never see Sweet back in the charts again? were wrong, _ •., ........ 't- you? 'Cos Brian .'J"uU"'~l and company have bounced right back with "Fox that the Sweet lads ever any fears that their pop were over. always knew we could it again," Brian told us.


Glitter Band's Harvey admits that although he enjoys the fast life of the city he's a country lad at heart. "I've always been a bit of a one for long walks and farmyard animals," be told us. "I've got this little fantasy of me living in the country. Perhaps one day it 'wiD come true." We're keepin' our fi.ngers crossed, Harvey!

WeU, that expLains everything, Darlene!

They do say that the first five years of your l~fe are very important. Y ~u le~rn lats of things, and if you're anythtng hk~ us, Y01f probably picked up some PTetty. stlly hab'l.ts too. Trouble is, ours are shU untr: us ...
VALLI: We shouldn't really say this about someone as dignified as our Editor - but it's true folks! she still sucks her thumb. Of course, she'll tell you she's just getting a splinter out or something', but we're not fooled ... JILLY: Is a fluff-puller. When she was lying in her cot she used to pull bits of fluff off her blankets and, if you stand too close when you're talking to her, you'll suddenly look down and see you've got a bald jumper. Ahem ... ANDREA: Well, her mum does say that she used to tap dance in the pram but we find this hard to believe - surely she would have fallen out? Maybe she did fall out and fell on her head. That would explain a lot of things . . . JAMIE: When we asked him about his habits he said not to be so personal but we do know that when he was three he had a pet velvet cushion called Comfy. He still likes soft, floppy things ... so looks like Sally could be in with a chance ... SALLY: Was only eight months when she solved her first problem. Her mum said, "Where have I put that nappy pin?" and she said "Baa-gagablah-ooooh!" which roughly translated means, "I'm sitting on it, dearie". And now ... BRIGID: Wrote her first book when she was four. Her best friend, Willie Cuthbertson, tore it to ribbons and mashed it in with his Peach Delight. But that didn't put her' off. Unfortunately ... KIM: Kim's mum wrote tQ. tell us: 'The reason she likes aniseed balls so much cos I used to stuff her gob fulL Of them - it was the only way I could keep her quiet ... ' Thank you for the tip, Kim's Mum, you're right - it works! SCOTT: His mum bought him a budgie when he was two and that's why, whenever h~ gets the chance, he'll stand in front of a mirror and say, "Who's a pretty boy then?" ...

leather - of generous size, it is true, but leaving plenty of room for expansion! As Mum had been in raptures over "The Great Gatsby" and admired the garb of her hero I thought she would approve. Not a bit of it - she roared with laughter, asking me who on earth I thought I was! I said surely some film star came to mind. "Good gracious ... Mickey Mouse!" was her flattering reply. Mike - Falmouth Never mind, Mike ... personally we're all great Mickey Mouse fans here! SHORT CUT In a very old book, I found this beauty hint: "If you want long, thick eyelashes, cut them short. In about a month they'll grow much longer than they were before." I suppose you could always wear false eyelashes while you're waiting! Lin - Wolverhampton Well, Lin, that's' one beauty tip our VaLLi definitely doesn't . recommend foUowmg!


While waiting at the airport for the arrival of my greataunt from Canada, we were wondering if she'd be able to recognise us, as we hadn't seen her for five years. Then my grandad disappeared and returned with a large piece of cardboard with "Grandad" written on it. And there he stood among all the direction signs! . Osmond and Kenny Fan Stockport







n Drea ms are nothing more than wishes, }} goes the soru; ... and they are iust that! They simply reflect what's going on in your every day life - your loves and hates, fears and worries. We chatted to some stars to find out what they dream about ... and what they mean. But first, here's our resident dream specialist (Sally) trying to work out some of our own dreams.

Jamie's c:treams are pretty predictable. Most nights he c:tr,ams "'e's all dresied up in all Arab outfit and surrounded by exotic lemales pampering him alld feeding him Turkish delight. . Our Resident Dream Specialist says: Till's is obViously", wishful ihfn~ing dream. Keep your fingers crossed next time you go to sleep, Jamie,and it might come truel Brigid has a pretty horrific dream that keeps coming back. Uln this dream I'm walking down Ithe High Street and there's no-one I!round," she told us. "As I walk past the launderette, this monster leaps out of the doorway. It's green and h~lry, with huge claws and teeth. It grpbs hold of my .rni, and I'm struggling to get tree. Then, just as I'm waking up, I realise the monster is Jamie. in disguisel" Our Resldellt Dream Specialist saya: This' Is a mistaken identity dream which often occurs when the dre.mer is obsessed with lI:omebody particularly tiresome. Anti the solution? Try to avoid seeing th,s monstrous type personl Sco,ff's mOlt memorable dream is a reall)1 "",.Ird ene, "l dreamt that I was slumped over my typewriter in the office. In the background cha.os struckl Brigid was desperately searching for some PJpers on her dellk, Valli was digging into a tube of mascara the size of a vacuum flask and calling out to Jamie to get a move on with the tea. "Then the earth began to shake and I woke up with a start. Our Resident Dream Specialist ~ays: Thill dream means nothing other th_n that the dreamer Is a lazy good-for-nothing who can't even ~tay awakel (Hear, hearl - Valli).

Steve Harley of Cockney Rebel always seems to have a certain kind of dream when he's restless about trying to finish writing a song. "I get this weird sensation of flying in my dreams when I'm wound up about my song-writing," he told us. "I don't sprout wings or anything as dramatic as that, but I've often spread my arms out like the wings of a bird in my sleep. It's a pretty peculiar sensation and at the time I feel like I really am flying. I can actually see things from a bird's eye view ... its fantastic!"

Alvin Stardust told us that most of his shut-eye antics seem to require superhuman efforts, so he often wakes up feeling exhausted! "There's one that really used to get me," he said. "I'd be walking in the countryside when I'd suddenly see a huge mountain, and I'd get this funny feeling that I had to climb it. "Night after night I'd try to climb this enormous monster but never make it to the top. It was really quite scary! Then one day I dreamt about the mountain and this time I actually made it!"

Steve's dream is a pretty common one. It probably means in Steve's case that be is wrestling with a problem that won't sort itself out however hard he thinks about it, so he pushes it to the back of his mind. His dream shows that he is trying to fly above the problem so he can see it from a different angie, and it suggests that if he stops trying to solve . his musical problems by force they'll just work themselves out.

Alvin's dream is fairly common to folk who are trying to succeed in their job or who are worried about failing. The top of the mountain is obviously the goal their success. In Alvin's case, the mountain represented the lieight of his. popularity and climbing to the top of the charts. The final dream when the dreamer has actually climbed to the top of the mountain shows the dreamer has won ... in life and in the dream.




When we asked Noddy Holder if he could remember the most startling dream he'd ever had he immediately told us about a vivid one he had just before Slade went on tour in America, "I can see it all absolutely clearly," be told us. "I dreamt that I was back at school taking a very important exam. I was trying so hard to get all the right answers and hoping that I was going to get a Grade I pass. I felt very worried the whole time about failing."
It is easy to work out why Noddy had this kind of dream just before embarking on a massive tour of America - Slade's first. The challenge of going to America is enormous to any group ... and Noddy was simply worried that the band 'wouldn't go down well - that be would fail the exam of his career.

Bay City Roller, Derek Longmuir says that he usually has really great dreams in "vivid technicolour", "I often dream about the things I've been doing during the day, particularly if it's been something special," Derek told us. But one dream that often crops up is the "missing something" one. "I am usually running for a bus and it takes me ages to catch up with it. I get all puffed and hot 'n' bothered, but I always catch it in the end! Sometimes it's a traill- but I aJways manage to get on before it pulls off. It's really wierd." This dream is fairly easy to interpret when you know the history of the Rollers. Their struggle to the top was long 'n' hard and there were often days when the boys felt like giving up. Derek's' dream is simply his memory lookin' back on those days when he was constantly chasing success. Finally catching the bus rep-resents the success that he has gained at last.

Dave Paton of Pilot often dreams of his childhood. "They're really crazy dreams, y'know. I see myself sitting on the carpet playing with my toys. Sometimes I'm even in a pram looking up at the sky with a rattle in my hand," Dave told us. "They're always very happy dreams, and when I wake up I feel a sort of warm glow for hours afterwards! They're very nice dreams!' Dave had a very happy childhood and his dreams just reflect his nostalic feelings about the good old days when he was a toddler. He probably has this dream when he's feeling slightly insecure and in need of a spot of cosiness. - Looking up into the sky while he lies in his pram simply expresses his awareness of the mysterious future and what it holds for him. But clearly it doesn't scare him. ~13

There I was sitting at my desk, twiddling my thumbs, hand poised to pick up the receiver . . . I didn't even go out for lunch in case I missed him again. By 2.30 there was still no word.

Sometimes a brother and sister can be pretty close ... and it seems only natural when one of 'em takes a special interest in the otner one's life. But when a siste-r starts meddlin' and criticising he-r brather'e gi-rljriends, then uou. can bet it's gonna lead to trouble like in the cuse oj Alan and Sylvie ..



Normally, sis and I get on pretty well -one hundred per cent, in fact - but just recently she's been taking her big sister role iust a bit too far. I put up with it for a while, but then, sudde.,ly, I'd just had enough and I kinda blew up at her." The result is, that right now we're barely. speaking, It all started because ,of Viv - she's my new girlfriend. though she ve.ry nearly wasn't.

I'm not gonna let her - or anyone she strikes me as being a bit of a waste of time. else - run my lifel out. Those goblins had reminded me that at one time duelling was a favourite way for men to settle their differences. A slap in the face with a glove and then whammo! - swords or pistols at dawn behind the cathedral. Just like the Three Musketeers. Eric looked a bit surprised when r challenged him to a duel. "Pardon?" he said, edging back into the hospital, "I should have slapped your face:' I said, "but I couldn't find a decent glove. Mine have got holes in them." "Oh.' he said. He would have closed the door then but luckily I had my foot in it. "Meet me behind the . Methodist Chapel at dawn," I told him. "The choice of weapons is yours. But whatever you choose bring two 'cos I don't own any weapons, except maybe the Methodist Chapel at dawn. Neither did I, come to that, 'cos I overslept. But I was there by nine. When I met Melanie that evening I casually asked about Eric. "Oh, him," she sniffed, "he's a bore. I wouldn't call him a liar exactly, but he does exaggerate. Today he was trying to tell us a tale about how he'd been challenged to a duel. Nobody believed him, of course." "The fool," I agreed cheerfully, "Who'd believe a story like that?" "Michael wouldn't," she said. "He's got a terrific sense of humour, though." "Michael?" I asked, weakly. "He's the new medica] student. A real nice guy." And she started on about Michael and hasn't stopped since. I wonder if he's a good shot with a pistol?

I suppose, in away, she's, no worse than any of the other silly little girls he's always going around with except that this time he seems to be serious. And that's really what made me say what I did. We all know love is blind, and since Alan certainly· didn't seem to have noticed what was wrong with her, I felt ·it was my sisterly duty to point it out to him. Well, I should have kept my opinions to myself! It's not often that I've seen old Alan go off the deep end,

but this time he really flipped. He just didn't seem to understand that what I was saying was for his own good. I suppose my trouble is really that I just don't think any girl's good enough for Alan. He's a pretty special kinda fella - and I don't say that just because he's my brother. He really is. And I don't want to see him ending up with some silly girl who's not worth bothering about. But, among all his other assets, our Alan has a pretty strong mind of his own - and I should have known I was wasting my time trying to tell him what I thought of his darling Viv. Besides, as he told me, I "Suppose I should have a bit more faith in his judgement. He knows the girl better than I do and I suppose I could be wrong. Let's hope so, anyway. But, whether I am or not, from now on I'm gonna keep my big mouth shut. After an little brother's.growing up and I reckon it's time for me to step back and let him get on with his own life ...

"It was when I was in Rimini Iast summer," she told us. "Me and my friend were in the water, mucking about in the waves and trying to catch the attention of these two Iellas from OUI hotel. I was wearin' my extra-skimpy new bikini ... and I s'pose I should have known it wasn't built to stand up to the kinda treatment I was giving it! "Anyway, I remember I was just surfacing from this particularly big breaker I'd dived into, when I suddenly realised that one of my straps had burst and my bikini top was hanging down around my middle. "Immediately I dived under the water again - and I had to stay there with just my head above the water for a good ten minutes while my friend went ashore and managed to borrow a safety pin. "It was the longest ten minutes I've ever spent!"

But it's not just us girls who get into those face· reddening situations, y'know. One of our fella readers (below) told us this little tale. "I was on a tirst. date with this smashing girl I'd been dying to ask out for weeks," Pete from Surrey confided in us.

Of course he just smiled (a bit painfully!) and assured me it didn't matter, but, boy, was my face red! "Luckily, Lois didn't hold it against me, though. In fact, she reckoned it even helped to break the ice!"

Dear Valli, I'm not sure whether this is a beauty problem or not, but now that the new length, dress-wise, is calf length I was wondering what kind of shoes I should wear.

'If I were you I'd get them to do something completely different - a good cut'll get rid of all those straggly ends'.'

Sunny days are here again. and it's time you changed the way you look. After all, rosy cheeks and bright red lips are definitely winter stuff - and since that's long behind us, you really ought to tuck all those winter colours in the back of a drawer somewhere and take a look at what's new for summer. And, as you'll see, there's plenty to choose from! FACE FACTS It's unlikely that you've got a tan yet, but it's still time to start using a light seethrough foundation like Boots 17 Near Skin. If you've got some spare cash, try Dorothy Gray's Satura Tinted Foundation, 95p, which is especially good for dry skins, as it contains lot'S of moisturiser. Even if you tend to have spots or blemishes a seethrough foundation is still the thing to use, 'cos you can cover 'em up with a camouflage stick like Rimmel's Hide the Blemishes (which now comes in three shades). Boots 17 also do one (in three shades) called Hide A way Stick. So, just smooth your foundation first, then dab on the camouflage stick, blending it in.


Are you still wearing that same drab old winter face ... ? You are? Well, we reckon it's time you aid something about it ... here's how!


crayon, like Boots No.7, new Two Timers (it has a different colour either end) smudge a faint line underneath the lower lashes. Now add lashings of mascara - try Yardley's Sweepers in Navy. That's all you need! NIGHT·TIME EYES When night falls, make sure your eyes are full of summer magic. Start by applying a highlighter to your brow-bones. If you feel like a change from the usual white gloss, try Max Factor's ShadowOn Eye Shadow in Primrose, then for your lids use the Buff-On Eye Shadow in Golden Shimmer, smudging a little under the lower lashes. Other pretty pastels to look out for are Gala's Eye Gems in Silver Birch, Sweet Pea and Pussy Wil· low. Or for a pearly irridescent colour, try Boots No. 7's Shadow Mists, (you can choose from eleven different shades). Finally, for lovely long lashes, Mary Quant's Special Recipe Natural Lash Mascara. LlPSSmNERS Even in summer your lips need plenty of shine - they· just need a little less colour, that's all. Boots 17 Lip Gloss is a really shiny one. Or if you want a lipstick to go underneath, try Max Factor's Soft Pinks or Mary Quant's Lip Slickers. When it comes to picking a summer lip colour, make sure you go for a soft shade - especially if you have a tan. Not too pale, though you don't want insipidlooking lips! And, of course, don't forget you can use Vaseline as a lip gloss - it's a good money saver! So put on that summer face right now, and shine inside and out!


You can forget that full-of-cover make-up till next winter. No more harsh lines and deep colours - let your face shine naturelly1 .


BRUSH ON A BLUSH Just because it's summer doesn't mean that you should forget about a blusher, tho'. The colour to go for now are the soft, tawny ones. And, for a Now you can make the most of all the lovely see-through .change, why not put your . blusher in the hollows of make-up and light colours that'll glow in the sunshine beautify that tanl your cheeks (you can find them by sucking in your anyway 1 cheeks)? Then blend it in DAY-TIME EYES well for a sunny glow. So just use a little glossy During the daytime, eye If it's a shiny blusher you shadow on the make-up should be kept to white a minimum - especially in brow-bones, taking it right want, try Boots 17 Cheeky Sheen which comes in the summer.

Gigging most every night is enough to tempt some pretty nerve-racking dlsastel's, and sure enough there's one night that sticks in the lads' minds more than any other.

When the lads aren't working they all bundle down to the River Thames to their boat. They bought a six-berth boat between them a few months ago and try to get there as often as possible. "It's great," Van said. "Trouble is, Chris feels seasick just lookin' at it, so we have to treat him very delicately if we go for a . cruise and make sure he stays away from the Indian takeaway for days beforehand ...

What is it about me that makes me so fataHy attractive to boys? That's what I keep asking myself. And one day, when I'm a littIeold lady of thirty, I'm going to convince myself that it's true.

What every young girl should know about becoming a young woman.
Now you're makin g your own decisions. You're deciding who your friends are, what you want to do, and how to take care of yourself. You're learning too, about your body and your periods, and the modern, easy protection women like you are using. Lil-lets. Lit-lets tampons are smaller and surer than any pantie towel you can get. Simply because however small your towel is, it's still worn outside your body. You'll like the internal protection of Lil-lets sim ply because they hygienically solve all those problems that a towel can't. And as Lil-lets are made by the makers of Dr. Whites, you know you can confidently trust them completely

HI-lets are no larger than your lipstick. So they're small soft, with a uniq ue round end to help . you insert easily. Once in place, Lil-lets then gently and safely expand width ways only. Moulding to your shape perfectly, and keeping you more comfortably protected than any pantie towel you can get. You can actually see here how Lil-lets work. Try putting a Lit-lets Regular (usuallythe right choi ce for first -tirne users) into a small glass of water. See how it gently expands all round, to fit your body better, absorb more -and stay just the righ t length for perfect comfort. And perfect freedom. If you'd like any more information, plus a free sample pack of Lil-lets, sim ply send the pack top from your present sanitary protection to: Sister Marion, Department PIILLl2,Lilia-White (Sales) Ltd., Alum Rock Road, Birmingham B8 3DZ.
