Study Committee on Equality of' Educational Opportunity in the Denver Public Schools.
Elmwood has no library or auditorium; a- classroom serves as a gym and the children eat in the basement just outside the, restroom doorsa most uri-attractive and unsanitary place to eat. The pupils lose approximately 45 minutes of classroom time each day going from their rooms to the lavatories which are in the basement Elmwood is now the oldest school in use that has not had an addition in this century. The main hallway serves as an auditorium, and folding chairs are set up there, but the parents can neither see nor hear- the well prepared: programs: that the students and teachers have worked hard to present, .
We feel the children of Elmwood are entitled to facilities at least equal to those which serve other children in. Den-, ver. The current ones are. fen* below what; most children in the city enjoy. This neighborhood is haying a clean up campaign in conjrinction wih the Department of Health and Hospitals inspection'. Neither Elmwood's appearance nor facilities are an 'asset to. the area.

For many years I had dreamed of going home to Switzerland and at last my dreams came true. It was on a bright June morning that I left 1247 Lipan street and soon was at Stapleton Field for my trip with other Swiss people from Denver. Before long, we all climbed into the Continental Jet bound for Chicago. There we would take the Swiss Airliner for Switzerland. It was 9:30 a. m. when I got on the Jet and soon we were on our way. It was unbelievable how quickly time flew. We were in Chicago at 1:30 and at 4:30 p. m- we took our places in the Swiss Airliner. After a Stopover at Montreal, we landed in Zurich the next morning at 8:30. One of the girls yod-eied and the rest of us joined her from time to time. My two sister.* and a brother-in-law met me at Gloten Air Field. This is a short distance from Zurich. They dll recognized me and I

Keep silent and you and your neighborhood can be uninformed, inactive and very much alone. Silence is an enemy to understanding and progress.

Most home building maintenance and improvement contractors are honest in their advertising and selling, ,but there; are a few" unscrupulous "bait" advertisers and high-pressure sellers against whom, you must constantly .be on guard. To protect yourself and family CHECK the following: .
Don't deal with the "bait" advertiser who offers an unbe-lievablely low pricethen tries to add on "extras" or "switch" you to something much more expensive. Don't falT for the "M[pdel Home" sales pitch (the ptdmise of commissions for use of, your home as a "display model"). Watch out for fly-by-night roofing or chimney repair operators who "just happen to: be in your neighbor-borhood" and who offer you a "special deal."
Beware pf imposters falsely claiming to be "sent out by the city." RememberS inspectors or other employees of governmental agencies must display Credentials' on request will hot; try to sell you anything ;V ; .: and cannot recommend any-.particular company ..or product.,
; Double check on zoning, housing arid legal occupancy requirements and on possible city, plans, for the area, before buying, and, building a home or. making any substantial expenditure for alterations, or improvements,.
Deal with an established contractor. If in doubt as to his reputation, ask him for a list of previous- customers whose satisfaction you can determine. Also check with ,the Bettor Business Bureau, phone 244r4443.
Don't hesitate to get estimates from several contractors (based upon the' same specifications) to make sure you will not be overcharged. Never sign an estimate. Find out the exact financing terms as interest' rates vary. Remember that the FHA and lending agencies .:, do not inspect Or guarantee the job for materials and workmanship. .
Never sign a contract in blank. READ BEFORE YOU SIGN AND KEEP A COPY. Insist that all promises and guarantees be cohfimied3' ;IN WRITING. Check the contract with -On attorney- before: signing for major purchases.;.
Make sure the contractor is properly! licensed, arid; that;any necessdry city permits have been obtained. Don't .forget, ^at whenever a permit i$ required,.; the work must be ip spected-by the city.
! Remember that you the homeownerare held responsible for the proper correction of violations and you must also make sure that any alterations or improvements are in conformance with, housing and building regulations. Don't give the work your final "Okay" until it has passed city .inspection.
Don't sign a "Completion Certiifcate" before the job is
finished to your satisfaction and required city inspections have been made. If you do, the. contractor rilay collect his money from the financing agency, but
fail i to complete the work.
