Community Members Discuss Elmwood School
' Thirty people met at' Elmwood School on June 2 at 7:30 p.m. to begin commtmity'action to obtain a new building for Elmwood, School. The group heard the chairman of the meeting, Mrs. Drew Hewlings, state that Elmwood lacks an auditoTium, gymnasium, library, cafeteria. It is the oldest school building now in use which has not had an addition built isince 1900.
Mrs. Hewlings, incoming president of the Elmwood P.T.A., complained that the children must eat lunch in the basement hallway in front of the lavatories. All lavatories for the children are in die basement, card classes march up and down stairs all day long to use these,poorly located facilities. In this way, the children lose 45 mimites a day that might otherwise be devoted to classroom activities.
John Archulhta, Director of District 5 of the'West Side Improvement Association, deplor-ed^tfe dulhtess>of the surroundings;: charging that such surroundings interfered with learning. He said', .that because of.
the.' importance-. of good: reading ability-if the' student>'.isAfo Ipgm vpther?things.. /of

ScHOgjls in- cOre areas pf the. city 'should be better- than other, ischoois ip r1he Community, said. Be|nprd Valdez.'!; Mr. Valdez, a Member'of the Special Study Committee on1 Equality of Educational Opportunity. -.and Mc?ridger;;:ofJ the Pender ;W$it fare Department/ said that only through special treatment- cpul'4 children from deprived circumstances. ,begiven equal opportunity. These schools require top-notchteachers, .smaller classes,-an effort to reach parents! aswell as Children,, and superior^ school1 buildings.
One of the parents present, Mr. Salvador Delgado, wondered why school board members could not see; that funds not $peht for a new Elmwood were spent.' in much larger .amounts on children who drop out or get into trouble because their School experience is not what if should be;
The group decided to form a. cojnhiitfee: to plan activities to;, cail gtte;ntion to the Unfortunate. conditions at Elmwood.. Mr. i Archuleta is chairman. Other, members. include Miss Waterhouse, who is principal of Elmwbod, Mr. Delgado and Mrs. Hewlings.
In the. .study of school buildings, e.dmpleted by the Denver Public.. Schools in February, 1962, an addition of 8 class Tcoms and an all-purpose room was proposed for Elmwood School. An alternate plan was to replace the present building. More recently, the Study Committee* 9HB|[ IXjudlityYof'' Ec£
ucational Opportunity (March 1, 1964) recommended that
every-school should ,have library facilities (possibly a multipurpose room) and an >audi-torium. ^Elmwood School has a rated capacity of 495 pupils; during the past school year 525; pupils were registered.

VRP Something More Than Something To Occupy Your Time
: Monday, June 1-1, was the opening date for the 1.964 Vacation Reading Program. (VRP) sponsored annually by the Denver Public. Library in cooperation with local public,l private and parochial schools.
Now in its 43rd year, the program. is enthusiastically endorsed by library and school officials alike who point out that the VRP is far more than a summer project to "keep the kids occupied/' They explain that reading is a basic skilT acquired in the edrlier years of schooling and vital to all other phases pf learning. However, experience has showh that youngsters who do not keep this skill active during vacation mohths frequently re-, turn to school and must "catch up" to the level of reading achievement they Jieid reached the previous spring. Thus valuable time must be spent in the relearning process.
The Vacation Reading Program is designed to maintain reading skills even when schools are closed ana to prepare the young student for new growth in the following school year. In addition, since children are free to read books of their choice and in subject areas, of their interest, the VRP helps to develop the love of reading.
Boys and girl?- who have, completed kindergarten and will enter grades I. through 9 next fall are eligible to enroll' in the Vacation Reading Program. They simply pick up a special VRP tally at their Denver Public Library agency on or after June 'l.
Theme for the program this year is "Join the../ Mjle-High Readers."
have graduated. One per cent of the students are women.
The Engineering Drafting School offers post-high, school vocational courses in mapping and mechanical drafting. Students spend 2,000 hours^reight hours a dayfor one year to earn their certificate. Currently this school is Hone of about 25 being studied by the State University of Jowa in a research project designed to discover more about the kinds of students taking non-college vocational education and about their ldter job adjustments. Miss Goforth says that the Engineering Drafting School; gets between 10 and 25 job openings for each graduate. The current graduates have jobs yrith a number of firms and with state and federal government agencies. Five are with j the Bureau of Indian Affairs,. and two with the Bureau of Land Management. Others are with the Wyoming Highway Department, the New Mexico Highway Department and Western Electric Company.
During the summer months special trash collections by the Department of Sanitary Services are scheduled in the section of the West Side which is covered by the inspection program. These collections will take pldce on Saturdays, and are for the purpose of gathering up larger trash which usually is not picked up in the weekly ^collections. Areas designated for special \ -collection. are:
1. 5th Avenue to 8th Ave-pue, Elati Street to Santa Fe; Drive/. June.'
I. 1st Avenue to 5th Avenue,, Elati* Street to Santa Fe Drive, July.
. III. 1st Avenue to 4th 'Avenue, Acoma Street to Elati Street, August.
TV. 4th Avenue to 8th Avenue, Acoma Street to Elati Street/ September.
You live in old West Denver in the. area sometimes called Auiaria. If you live in the area bounded north and south by West 8th Avenue and West 1st Avenue and between Santa Fe Drive and Acoma Street, someday soon you will hear a knock bn your door or your door bell will ring.
You will receive a friendly greeting from a city employee who works for the Housing Section of Health :.and Hospitals. Although his I* D. card will not indicate it, he is called a sanitarian, BUT HE WILL SHOW YOU jftN; IDENTIFICATION CARD. 'This I. D. card i: will/ contain a description^ of this mqn along with his photograph.
The sanitarian will promptly state: the purpose oi his visit. He will tell you about the work of the West Side Improvement Association. He will tell you of a number of neighborhood meetings in this area and, as a result of these meetings, that a request has been made to Health and Hospitals for their assistance in improving your neighborhood.
Your Sanitarian will then proceed to look around your premises and look over the exterior of your dwelling unit.- He will then provide you with a list of fix-up chores which you will be asked to perform.
Although the list of fix-up chores that you .will be given is backed up by law, by City Ordinances, it will be presented, primarily, as a list of friendly suggestions. You will be asked to perform these fixup. chores because you wish to be a good neighbor, because you want to do your part to improve your community, and because you also wish to perform your part in interrupting blighting influences which depress property values and drive a community down hill until it becomes a slum area.
Your Sanitarian is specifically trained to detect areas of deterioration around your home which might escape your no-
tied He is trained to explain to you why a particular Condition which may have existed on your property for many years has finally become a blighting influence in your neighborhood. He is also trained to help you in fixing up your home by outlining economical and easy ways to perform your fix-up chores.
Who is your Sanitarian? What is he?.
Your Sanitarian, first, is a friendly, patient man v/hose life work is dedicated to the well being of all the people who live in his Community. Your Sanitarian is, second, a well educated, highly: trained individual who is taught to be aware of all the major hazards to health and well being of all of the people in his community. His work is not limited to the dwelling unit or to the neighborhood. You find him. on the dairy farm showing-milk producers how to deliver clean wholesome milk to the milk processor in your community. You find him in the plant of the food processor and. the milk processor assuring you of a clean, safe and wholesome supply of process sed food and-milk. You-find him in restaurants, grocery stores and meat markets and his-purpose, there is/to assure you that your food is cleanv wholesome, safe and properly labeled. If your children swim in public swimming pools be assured that they are reason-! ably safe from communicable diseases. Your sanitarian tests all public swimming pools for purity and safety of the water every Week duririg" the swimming season.
This man, your Sanitarian, will knock on your door with only one purpose. That purpose will be to help you, to give you the benefit of his training and experience in fixing up your home so that you can take pride in it, know that? your home adds to the beauty, .the attractiveness and wellr being of your neighborhood.
By Miss Rosanne Palmer, Supervisor Foster Care, Resources Unit, Denver Dept, of Welfare
Foster family care of Children is as old as death in the'world. Long before, there were any institutions for orphaned children, relatives or kindly neighbors adcepfed' needy children into their families. Moses was "fostered" by a princess of Egypt. Childless families down through the centuries have taken orphaned children into their homes and hearts. Mo'st of these were not legally adopted by their new. families as we understand adoption today.
In the early days of our country, many homeless younsters were indentured to families with whom they remained until they worked out the cost of their keep. Sometimes these homes proved to be real foster homes. The young apprentices in Europe a century or two ago also found kindness, affection, and interested supervision; in some of their placements.; Both the indentured servants and the apprentices had hard, unpleasant lives; more often than they met with kmdjiess, however. Their plight /and; that pf file little) wanderers orphaned and neg-
lected runaway children who adopted child/ The foster fam-
lived by -their wits stirred, society to establish the1. orphan "asylums" and charity schools known in the, Eighteenth and Nineteenth centuries.
Here in our own United: States in the late Nineteenth Century,, children from the crowded* orphdnages of file .East were brought by train to the West and "given" to farmers who needed cheap labor. Many of these children. were exploited by their employers like the indentured and apprenticed children of the past. Many others, however, were warmly received by their foster parents .and treated as members of the family.
Foster care of children has appeared in many guises 6ver, the years. Here in the Denver Department of Welfare' in this year 1964, we distinguish foster .family,'placement from adoptive placement by the-fact fos* ter care is temporary, in nature and the. child's natural parents, relatives, or- the agency retains custody-of him. Adoption is a pphiiarient arrangement, arid one m w;hich. the' new parents take total custody of their
ily homes are studied much like adoptive homes and are closely supervised while a child is in placement there. We prefer nowadays to place only qne or, two foster children in any, one family.
Our agency has used foster family homes for children since the Child* Welfare Services Division was established in '1940. We developed a few homes and placed a few children. It was customary to place several children in one home in. those earlier days. In December, 1952, we had 108 children in placement and had a list of 47 homes. Each year we have gained more children arid needed to recruit more and viribre homes. On -the last day of December, v 1963, we .had 390 children in foster homes. and 283 active homes bn our register. Approximately one-quarter of the "active" homes are not available* for use at a given time.
We need more foster family homes. We need homes for School age and teen-age children 1 in particular. We need receiving'Homes for: emergency care of children of all ages.

Conference on 'youth and Smoking" Meets
By Glenn Close, Jr.
The National Conference on "Youth and Smoking" was held in Washington, D. C., on April 30, May 1 and 2. The National 4H Center was the delegates' home as well as meeting place during-the convention.
The delegates of the conference were selected by a committee which was also to serve as the administrative staff during discussions. Each state sent two delegates (a boy and a girl) and one from each of the largest 4 cities sent delegates. In all, rl 12 delegates attended, with 23. on the administrative staff.
Although most of the time the delegates were in discus-sion groups, a well planned program.'Of. fun and entertainment wqs used and the whole conference a lot of fun.
Both smokers and, non smokers were well represented in discussion and this made it very interesting and educational.
The delegates Were also taken on a guided tour of Washington and a trip to the Medical Health Center in Maryland.
The Boys' Clubs of Denver furnished the tickets, money and extra money for the boy delegate from Colorado. Each delegate was able to meet others from all over the United States as well as learn of the dangers oPsmdking. *3
