The Police Citizen meeting held October 22, sponsored by the West Side Improvement Association had an attendance q^. sixty five. Representing the policeUepdrtment were Lieutenant RuBy, Sgt. Gerald Marker, Officers Daniel' Malloy, Phil Villalovos, DeT Black and Ralph Callahan' of District One.
From questions put to the officers, it was learned that one of the best precautions against breaking and entering for the I purpose of robbery is to leave! the. porch light and yard light on ALL NIGHT. It was gratifying, to be told that the crime rate percentagewise has dropped in this area, however, robbery still -ranks as the number one offense.
'.The explanation, by, the. offi cers that people do not h,crve to Identify .themselves,.^ (if they choose hot to) when calling in p complaint may make our citizens more willing to give information and to call the police regarding suspicious actions in their neighborhood. The officers requested cooperation and citizen help.
Among other matters discussed was the Denver curfew law. On week nights at 10:30 p.m. On weekends* 11:30 p.m. (Parents please note).
Regarding the wave of purse snatching: throughout, the city, the officers, cited it as a SRon-
Chairmaxi of District 1 Elected Mn Lesllie J. Kalanqhih of 1423 Lipan Street, was-recent-; ly chosen by residents of District 1 as Director of- the district.

taneous act rather than pro-meditated in the majority at cases... Jt is usually a case of snatch and run'when seeing a purse on a woman's arm. The ranking officer Lieutenant Ruby, cautioned women about going out at night unaccompanied-* At least try to have another woman with you and a group is better protection and less temptation for the would be purse snatcher. .
It was also learned that the area within the boundary, lines of the West Side Improvement Association is in District One, known as; the Downtown area and covered, by squad cars 17, 18 cmd 31. This, is a large territory to cover and: perhaps the explanation of why there can sometimes be a few minutes delay in answering a call. The increased growth of Denver leaves about one officer for every fourteen hundred people. .
The police and citizens are concerned about vandalism and the police are constantly on tne alert for any signs, groups of youths aimlessly wandering around, suspicious activity, noise or even, lights in buildings at umisuual hours and unoccupied residences.
Two. people in the audience publicly thanked the police for their promptness to calls and efficient handling of breakins. Another person expresses her thanks for the special checking of her home while" she was on vacation.
jij Officer Phill Villalovos told, of the organizing of sports par--Vticipation for youths in certain, areas of the city including the West Side- The officers give j their time to work with groups in seasonal sports. There is j no money available and' much of what is spent must come from the officers themselves (not stated by the officersreporters surmise). Many of the people present expressed their approval of the very informal and frank. discussion between citizens and police. Every question asked was answered forthright and in detail with no alibis, hedging or glossing over.
It would seem from talking witn several people attending the meeting that they consider the following would assist in overall cooperaion with police and the community: Supervision of children's after school activity is indicated, plus teaching children from little ones that police officers are their friends, not their enemies to be threatened with or feared by. Less apathy on the part of citizens to suspicious behavior and unusual activity in their neighborhood, as an officer stated, we wduld rather answer a call and find no one trying to burglarize, no gang fight, no neglect or abuse, of children, than to be called too. late.
The Association thanks *ho* police officers, each of them gave up their off duty hours* to spend the' everiincr answering questions Land discussing-various problems with the audience.

The dangerous crossing at 9th and Lawrence Street is where the Lawrence Street viaduct terminates. However, the children cross UNDER the viaduct NEVER ACROSS Lawrence Street.

- ; thanksgiving
By Frances Apodaca 8th. Grade
"Bless' us, O Lord,'and these Thy gifts which we are about ; to/ receive freftfi/ Thy.bounty, through Christ our Lord Amen." After these words or words > df similar meaning the family hungrily eyes the turkey and prepares to eat heartily. After dinner the guests will sit and discuss many subjects and stories. It all seems pleasant enough but what about the feast day itself? Have we forgotten why this is a happy day?. Don't we give a thought to being thankful for our feast, friends, and. many blessings. Some people don't and they are letting the real meaning of Thanksgiving pass by-
Thanksgiving was meant to be a day when people thanked and praised the Lord for what He had done for them. When the first pioneers landed in America, they knelt humbly and said a prayer of thanks, Are we, their descendants,
a good idea, too, not to sign pi§ able to do this also? Yes,
ST. CAJETAN SCHOOL. SAFETY PATROL has 20 trained boys alternating each-drionth,
your check until you are ready to cash it.
If you lose your check, or it gets destroyed after you have received it, get in touch with your local security office and explain what happened. Your check can be replaced if it is destroyed, stolen, or lost. It. takes time to do this though. Take cafe of your checks.
we can and should for we have many more things to be thankfUl for than they ever did. So oh Thanksgiving will you and your family remember? Will; other families remember? Thanksgiving Day is also meafrt to be a. day, of thanks-Sjrnot just a huge feast of turkey with all the trimmings.-
