telling hours for children. In general, the library has always been a cultural center of the West Side and the people in this area have looked upon it with pride and. appreciation. To lose the library is. to take away a part of the life of .this community. With the advent of T. V. and accelerated transportation perhaps our people have not used their library so frequenly as in the past. All the school' principals in our district are in accord that we must maintain our library with the necessary reference material, books and an up to date catalog. Our elder citizens patronize the library, calling for books on various subjects with which to inform themselves, as well as leisure-time reading- Under the. sponsorship of the West Side Improvement Association, the Library Committee which met October 13, has decided to make every effort to develop arid maintain citizen, -interest and to concentrate on greater circulation of books.' Those attending the Library Committee for' the October meeting were Mrs. Guy Johnson, Mrs. Chris/ Mprrion,f' Frances Brown, Mrs. Joseph, Wette,; Mrs. John Bradley, Mrs:-. Leo.

Mr. Frank Justice, Chief of the Housing Section of the Department of Health and Hospitals said, "The people of the West Side neighborhood have demonstrated that with help from city agencies and community groups, residents can carry out a great deal of do-~ it-yourself renewal." Mr. Justice pointed out that this has been largely a voluntary program in which the West Side neighborhood residents and the Health Department decided jointly on the type of housing renewal to be conducted. At a meeting last April, area residents voted to accept a proposal of the Housing Section for inspecting the outside of their premises- This and previous citizen meetings were sponsored by the West Side Improvement Association,' a citizen participation group in the area. The inspections began in May of this year.
A number of groups have helped to make the program a success. These include the public and parochial schools in .the. area, ;.the Boys Club of Denver and the Auraria Community Center. Teachers and students volunteered their time tor Saturday clean-up work.

! DENVER ART MUSEUM COMPLETES CAMPAIGN
The campaign committee for the Denver Art Museum has just completed a three week state-wide membership drive aimed at enlisting 2000 new members.
As the largest art museum between Kansas City and San Francisco, the Denver Art Museum is today a visual storehouse of art for an eight state area. Its collections have become an important teaching instrument and contain representative works from all important historic Periods and cultures. More than 250,000 persons visit it annually.
The Art Museum is an agency of the city, maintained by municipal appropriation which provides about 70% of the operating budget. However, the growth of the collections and the development of the building program are achieved only through private gifts and contributions.
Those in our community who have not recently visited the Denver Art Museum should spend an afternoon just looking. We are sure you will come away with a greater appreciation of history, culture and art- We especially feel that a visit to the Denver Art Museum is a "must'' for all children of school age.
The Museum is located at 1343 Acoma Street. Visiting hoursevery day from 9 to 5 except Monday 1 to 5 and Sunday 2 to 5.
The members of the New Elmwood Committee of the West Side Improvement Association wish to extend their sincere thanks to the people of the Elmwood area who signed the petition requesting a new school and to those who wrote letters to the Board of Education in support of the petition.

Mrs. Paul Munyan
If one of you were to ask me, "vyhat is the greatest gift you have ever received," I would have to tell you about the day in a Denver Courtroom, in February, 1959. On that day a judge awarded me, together with about a hundred other people, the American Citizenship. These people, men. and women, and even some children, were from all walks of life ,and from many different countries France, Italy, Germany, Mexico, and many more. They had asked the United States Government to grant them the right to become Americans. And on that day, the judge gave us all the greatest gift, the gift of freedom, the gift of belonging, the gift of responsibility and loyalty towards a great country he gave us America, and he made us Americans.
When I joined the others in. my first Pledge of Allegiance .1 knew I would forever treasure this great gift, and that T. would do everything in my power to- defend the rights and. responsibilities which had been, given me by becoming an> American.
A pledge is-a solemn promise. Allegiance means unalterable faithfulness. In this pledge, we solemnly promise-that we will be faithful ini thought, word, and deed to the flag and to the country for which it stands. This Republic-is one nation; it cannot be divided; it gives liberty and justice to all its inhabitants. The* flag is the symbol of Our1 freedom and our faith. We pledge our allegiance with thankful hearts that we are privileged to live under its protection.
By taking the oath of citizenship, those people in the; courtroom had become Americans, not Italiqn-Americans, not German-Americans, not British-Americans, but Americans. The Oath of Citizenship is a solemn statement that you call upon God to witness, that you absolutely give up of your own free will, your citizenship in any other country, and your allegiance to any foreign ruler, whose subject you may-have been. You promise on your honor, that you will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the united States of' America, against all enemies.- You do this of your own decision, keeping back nothing in your mind. You call upon Almighty God to witness your oath. If you take this oath with intention to deceive, you are a traitor to, the country of your adopion.
You become a citizen because it was your dearest wish and not because someone compelled you to do so. There is no prouder title than "Citizen of the United States."' > I consider it my greatest gift.
HAVE YOU NOTICED

.^NTERrPAROCHIAL CHOIR By Susan Canny,, 7th grade Many Denver Catholic Schools are participating in an Inter parochial choir. This will give the children an opportunity to unite their voice in song with selected students at the annual Fine Arts Festival held in the Spring.
Three weeks ago, several students from St. Joseph tried out at an audition: They had to sing the scale, "My Country 'Tis of Thee" and "Silent Night This determined whether they were alto or soprano, practice is held each Saturday from 9:30 to 11:45. Everyone seems to enjoy this session. "The Little Worm'r is a favorite of all the children.
Mr. Leo Frasier is choir director and well known for his exceptional musical ability.
The little girl laughed delightedly and ran after the call. Too. late she saw the car speeding down the streets She screamed, horrified, then, everything was dark. Later she awoke in the hospital with., only minor injuries 'but worse, things could have happened-*. But even they wouldn't have-occurred had she been more-careful. Today carelessness-is the main cause for broken,, legs and arms or even deaths People must be cautious iff they expect to live contentedly-and they must get over the? idea that "it will never happen; to me." People with these-ideas are just the pnes who end up with injuries.
Throughout our whole life, we must be careful, but not just in crossing the street, for~ this is one small action completed momentarily throughout our whole life. Safety must: come first in all our actions andi is one reason why people* are living. So don't b alive* today and dead tomorrow. Be > careful and remember thats safety comes first,

Music Now Essential Subject In Public Schools
At the beginning of this cen tury education in this country in most public schools was solely the three R's. Suddenly music sort W sneaked into the curriculum and became an integral part of American education. Musical training has become ever more important, as evidenced today by school orchestras, glee clubs, boys' arid girls' choirs and marching bands. Today our schools' compete. for recognition of their excellency in instrumental and vocal music. The time devoted to the training of our children in music j has produced some outstanding instrumental and vocal ar-, tists- At least every child has an opportunity to find himself and his talent in v the field of music. Every child is exposed to music in Some phase during his grade and high school days, an exposuure which is all to the good.
Our schools must be given credit for at leaSt fostering or fanning an appreciation of rhusic plus an encouragement of talent.-' The child is helped to enjoy music, and even if he does, hot go into music as a Career he is in many cases able to play for his own: pleasure and that of his friends.
It is our opinion that music, ^rt, and: sports are just as important in our. schools as the three R's-

My wife and I were window shopping down town .ldst month. Most of the stores were. featuring 'back-to-school'' sales, for a second we thought they were too early. But then we. remembered when there were seven school children in our own home. .
It brought back memories of shopping sprees involving all the children. We never bought school clothing and materials FOR them we purchased these things WITH them. We discussed the amount of money we could spend, the types of clothing and shoes best suited for school and play- I believe we were always able to help them share in this pleasant experience and consequently accept some of the responsibility which goes with wise spending, particularly when money was not easy to come by. We,/never seemed to have enough money, but the! children were able to understand this because they were involved in the planning and spending of the money.
Doing things WITH your children is often more important than doing things FOR them. In this way, they develop a sense^ of belonging to a family. Going back to school is a family activity. You don't send only your child to school; you send a part of you with him. He takes your attitude, .your interest, your, preparedness, your personality right along with' him -into the classroom. It therefore becpines very important, if your child is to succeed educationally, that you become involved' in his daily school experiences. These experiences' include not only his1 grades,' his school materials,, his classmates-but even his clothing and his meals.
When your child knows that you are really interested in his educational activities, he develops a sense of obligation toward success in school because he wants to please you by being a better than average student-.
So "back to school" must include the parents as well.
