TIME TO APPLY FOR COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS
High school graduates who want to attend college will find many resources for scholarships or logns to help with expenses at colleges or universities. These schools make available several types of financial aid, and additional awards are made by other organizations. The Colorado Council'on High School-College Relations has described the types of aid to college students:
ScholarshipAn award made to a student who has achieved scholastic excellence and who possesses good character and leadership potential.
Educational GrantAn award made to a student who combines acceptable scholastic ability with good character and who is in need of financial assistance.
Student Aids-Other means .by which a student may help defray his college expenses, such as loan funds, employment opportunities, assistant-ships, and the like.
Sponsored or Agency Scholarship or Grant An award made by some organization other than the college or university. The basis for these awards are usually established by the donor.
Deadlines for applications Tor "many*-: scholar3hfps-*-tmd grants will be coming soon. It is important for students and parents to get information and submit applications as soon as possible. At West High School, Mr. Evert Blomberg is the college counselor, who can give information and advice on college admissions and scholarships.
Senior students at St. Joseph's "High School are well aware of scholarship opportunities afforded them and many have--availed themselves of the in-
formation offered in the bulletin board displays and conferences with the homeroom sponsors and the principal.
In the interest of those who perhaps are reluctant to take the first step or to inquire at the office of the principal or of a homeroom sponsor about the procedure to follow, this information is released.
Registration forms for the ACT' (American College Test) and the SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) (College Entrance Examination Board) are available at the office. Many colleges- require one or the other of these tests as an entrance pre-requisite or requirement.
Sister Mary Stanislaus, principal, is most anxious to confer with students who are interested in furthering their education and' assist them in any way possible to avail themselves of the opportunity of applying for and working toward a scholarship.
Interest, improvement in scholastic achievement, and definite application of effort and study are the requirements needed when applying for a scholarship.
Some parents and students might wish to consider loans and', grants for further educa-didn. ''F'6rmS' for 'these- purb&seS5 too, are available at the school office.
Much material has been made available through the C. P.T'.L. (Catholic Parent-Teacher League) and may be requested by interested sophomores and juniors as well as seniors. With this information in the hands of parents and students early in a high school career, better choices, more interest, and certainly a definite goal are more likely to be established and attained.
NEW FOOD STAMP PLAN
Beginning March 1, 1965, the ^distribution of surplus commodity foods to low income fami-Jies in Denver will be replaced with a food stamp program. This new program will be administered by the Denver Department of Welfare in cooperation with the U. S. Department of .Agriculture. Families Tecedving some type of public or general assistance through the Welfare Department will be eligible to participate in the "Food Stamp Program; other low income families may also be eligible depending on family size and income.
Under the new plan, eligible families will buy coupons in an amount-equgl to what they "have been spending for'food in the past and they will be given additional coupons free. These coupons can be spent for most food's in an authorized grocery store. The coupons can be used only for food for -members of the family or house-
hold; they can not be used for foods marked "imported," or for tobacco, alcoholic beverages, pet foods, soap, paper products or other items which cannot be eaten by the family. The purpose of the program is to increase the food budgets of low income families to provide more nutritious diets. Participating grocery stores which will be licensed by the Department of Welfare will be efit by increased retail sales.
Families who are eligible may choose whether or not they will participate in the Food Stamp Program. If they decide to take part, however,, they must buy the coupons on a regular monthly or semimonthly schedule, and not just occasionally. Public meetings to explain the Program have been held on the West Side. Additional information can be obtained from the Department of Public Welfare.

St. Joseph Grade School A BOY AND HIS PHYSIQUE By Rocky Duarte
A boy in excellent condition does not get that way when he is bom. He gradually builds his muscles with techniques called exercises. Some of rnese exercises are: push-ups, squat thrust, side straddle hop,, windmill and sit-ups.
Pushups help us build our shoulders and arms. The squat thrust merely keeps us coordinated. Side straddle hop helps when we need our leg muscles strengthened.The same goes for the windmill. Sit-ups help us with our backs and arms and legs. So if you boys want to stay in tip-top condition keep up your exercise. Even you girls to stay in a
slim figure can profit.

So come on. Talk to. your teachers and ask them to help you to learn about different
things through books. ,
Cooperation With Law Ahd Authority
By Geraldine Sansbum
Cooperation with law and authority depends upon success in life.
If we have no responsibilities in life we are not going to be trusted in whatever we do. People are going to look up to us if we just show them that we are able to stand on our own two feet. When we think of the terrible tragedies that are occurring in our country today, we should try to be one of the many, who, for the common good of all, abide by law and authority.
The little things we do in life may someday add up to bigger things if we just do them correctly. If we are authorized in one important project, we should listen to this person and we may find that it will all come easier. Law and order were created for our protection, as well as for our happiness here on earth. In the many complicated and difficult things in everyday life our state has made these little problems easier to solve by higher authorization.What good does it do us to break the law? We only get ourselves into trouble and have to pay for our mistakes. We have to realize that the laws are made for our good and that we are the ones who are going to suffer. Let us, all, then, be good

We would be grateful if you would save your papers and magazines and notify any of our children or bring the papers down to the school on that week-end. The money we receive from the sale will help enormously with books for the school library.
On Thursday evening, February 4, parent-teacher conferences were held at St. Joseph's High School. The results have been most gratifying.
That evening over 300 parents visited the school, picked up the report cards for their sons' or daughters and conferred with the student's teachers. With doors open at 7:30 p.m. and rooms designated to certain teachers and courses there was a continuous 'flow of conferences until after 10 p.m. Only forty families were unable to be represented that evening. Many of them have since picked up the report cards and conferred with the teachers involved.
| Already class assignments have come in on time and1 test grades have improved. Mutual understanding achietved through this type of relationship can be so beneficial to the three concernedparents teacher and student.

A SPECIAL DAY By Paul Atencio Grade 8
February 27, 1807, was a special day in the history of the United States. On this day Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was born in Portland, Maine. The 8th grade of Saint Cajetan School- has been reading and studying some of the poems of this great poet. Among Longfellow's many poems, the 8th grade has chosen to study the following, The Courtship of Miles Standish," "Evangeline" and "Skeleton in Armor." The study of these poems has been greatly enjoyed by the class.
Attendance, at community1 study halls has been irregular and there is evidence to lead us to believe that many pern-ents in the area do not realize1: the opportunity which the five study halls afford students who are behind in their school work.; due to absence or the inability of parents to assist in home* work assignments.
The five study halls are staffed by qualified, dedicated personnel who spend one or more evenings each week or a voluntary basis in hopes that the young men and women of the area will be provided additional assistance in assuring success in school, thus forestalling the possibility of becoming discouraged and eventually dropping out of schooL Grades have recently been sent home and should be o good indicator as to whether or not your child should avail himself of the expert assistance of one or more of the following study halls:
1. North Lincoln Housing Project, 1438 Navajo Street, Upstairs, Wednesday 7:00 8:30 p.m.
2. Denver Welfare Training-Center, 646 Delaware Street, Wednesday 7:00 8:30 p.m.
.3. First Mennonite Church Youth Center, 430 W. 9th Ave., Thursday 7=00 8:30 p.m.
4. First Spanish Methodist Church, W. 11th Ave. and Kal-amath Street, Monday 7:00 -8:30 p.m.
5. Sun Valley Housing Project, West 10th Ave. and Decatur Street, Thursday 7:00 8:3Q p.m.
If distance or fear of having your children on the streets at this hour is a factor, we sug-ges that you take your child to the study hall or contact Mr. John Archuleta, 244-2048, who will help you plan a schedule and, in an emergency, help you arrange transportation. , |

The program appealed to every irian and boy with a little bit of music, vocalizing, and a great deal of baseballhighlights of the 1964 World Series.
All this was topped off by refreshments served in the cafe' teria under the culinary direction of Mrs. Dorothy Lindsay, President of Baker's Parent-Teacher Association, and her most dedicated officers and members.
This was an opportunity for all fathers to get to know their sons better and for sons to show off their "Dads" to the men faculty.

DISTRICT 3 MEETING MARCH 11
District 3 of the West Side Improvement Association has been discussing home improvements, including compliance with housing inspection. One concern that property owners have expressed is with contractors who fail to complete the job for which they are paid. Because of the interest in this topic, the District has invited John A. Stone, Chief of the Engineering Division of the Building Department, to talk on "Problems of Property Owners in their Dealings with Contractors." The meeting will be at 7:30 p.m., March 11, at the Youth Center of the First Mennonite Church, 430 West 9th Avenue. This is an open meeting, and visitors from other districts, are invited to attend.
Correspondence between District' 3 and the Building Department and the Housing Section of the Department of Health and Hospitals has brought explanations of the increasing coordination of services by the two city agencies. These two departments have' separate duties to perform. The Housing Section of the Department of Health and Hospitals inspects dwellings to 'see' if they meet the requirements for safe and healthful habitation. When improvements are being made to a building the Building Department issues a permit to the contractor to do the job and then inspects afterwards to be sure the job has been completed and properly done. Under new regulations, the contractor who does more work than is called for by orders of the Housing Section of Health and Hospitals must check, first with the Bpilding Department. District 3 has expressed its appreciation to the two city agencies for this improvement in procedure, designed to protect the property owner.
If you wish to learn more about this subject first hand, we urge you to attend this meeting with John A. Stone on March 11.
Getting Your Money's Worth Copyright 1965 by Consumers Union of U. S., Inc.
Diseases like smallpdx, polio, diphtheria, tetanus, meas-ies, and whooping cough can virtually always be prevented by immunization. Yet many children and adults lack adequate protection, according to the February issue of CONSUMER REPORTS.
.Too many people have the following false ideas: 1, that immunization is only for children; 2, that a child doesn't really need immunization until he goes to school; 3, that once immunized, a person retains this protection indefinitely. Believing such fallacies can open the door to tragedy.
CU's medical consultants suggest the following schedule for vaccinations. Changes may be made by one's family doctor, since no vaccines work uni-formly and since people differ in their reactions to vaccine. Nevertheless, keeping to this basic schedule will, CU says, provide maximum protection with minimum risk and difficulty.
