That Was A lackey' Day
Ted and Margaret Luckey of 464 Santa Fe Drive decided to try their luck together twenty-four years ago when they were united in marriage, and theirs has been an interesting and exciting life ever since.
About seven months out of the year they follow the county fairs in Colorado, and when you hear-il "step, right up, ladies and gentlemen,, try yoiir luck, be a winner," the Luckey Concessions and Carnival are in full swing. Even before they were married, Ted Luckey operated concessions at county fairs, and in later years :they added the carnival operations. The concessions include the ever .popular dart throwing, the ball games, shooting, gallery, etc., arid the carnival includes the ferris wheel; tub of fun; mer-ry-go-round, and small cars. Anyone young in- years or young at heart cannot resist the music and excitement that goes with a carnival. In the spring of the year the Luckey Amusements operate in the shopping centers, and after the 4th of July they then follow the county faiTs.
Lucky again is the Luckey family to have five sons to follow in the business. At the present time the two older boys, Gary and Ronnie, are already assisting in the operating of the Carnival, with the twins Gale and Dale enrolled in West High and the youngest son, lyfickie, attending Baker Junior High; ~
Gary finished his 3 year service in the U. S. Army last year. His German bom wife, Doris, of Heidelberg, Germany, preceded his return to tie United States by g few months and they were married December 31, 1964. They reside at! 466 Santa Fe Drive, which is next door to his parents who have lived at 464 Santa Fe Drive since 1951, and at 30 South Kalamath prior to that.
West Siders who frequent shopping centers in the next couple of months and hear the familiar carnival. music may' very likely be greeted, by one of the enterprising and smiling "Luckeys."

, 'y& NEW FACE"_ V.....
By Robert Carlyle Reeek.
Walk tip. sunlight, breathe | in th^ctiT,
Be of gd Arid with' the above words I believe we, as the West Siders, can take heart and pride in what we have achieved. The transformation of our neigbor-hood by painting and cleaning up has been a success. Our West Side has a new face; with light shade of powder and tint of rouge she is a very pretty lady. Thanks to the West Side Improvement Asso-
ciation for getting the ball 'roll-1 ing but this has been a com-' bined effort, and it took most-of the West' Siders to carry it through. They rolled up their sleeves and got to work on the program. The results have made the hard work worth it. For the West Side assuredly does have a new face; ope in which all West Siders can take pride, and' because of the effort our West Side is a better place to live in.
Another Spring is herelet's keep up the GOOD WORK and clean up. paint up and spruce up the 'West Side.

The scope of things to be found in booksplus the leisurely pleasures of readingare suggested by the 1965 Vacation Reading Program which, opens June 1 at Byers Neighborhood Library > West Seventh Avenue Ond Santa Fe Drive, and at other Denver Public Library agencies throughout the city.
Theme of the 44th annual summer project is "Roam the Reading Range." The vacation reading program is spon- : sored by the Denver Public Lr-brary in cooperation with local :. public, private and parochial Schools.
Purpose of the popular program is to keep young reading skills in use during vacation months, prepare children for new reading growth during their next school year, and encourage reading for fun.
Last year, more than 44,000 Denver youngsters took part in the "VHP." Fliers explaining simple rules for the program already have gone home to parents via their school children. These fliers point out that:
. the'Vacation Reading Program. is open to children' who fhave completed kindergarten and will enter grade
1 through 9 next fall;
. enrollment for the program opens June 1-and children may enroll any time thereafter;
... a child enrolls in the VRP simply by picking up a free "Roam the Reading Range" reading tally at any Denver Public Library agency.
The attractive book tally contains eight spaces in which each reader writes the names of books read during the summer. At least eight books of the reader's- choice, must be read and recorded on the tally to enable th£ youngster to complete the Vacation Reading Program. When each of the eight lines has been filled in with.the titles of books read, the VRP participant should turn in his book tally at the Denver Public Library outlet where he or she borrows books. At this time, a special emblem may be signed by .the. .fcnild and this emblem: is posted'in the library. Iti addition, all-children who finish the Va--ccrfibn Reading Prografri! Will receive handsome certificates through their schools next fall.
Although the VRP reading tallies show only eight spaces for recording names of books reqd, every child is encouraged to read as many more books as he wishes during the summer months. Additional pages on which to list more book titles may hs requested through any of the Denver libraries.

Pastor Speaks On Closing Of St. Leo's Church
It has been three months since the Church of St. Leo the Great was closed and the order for its demolition given. How the familiar landmark that was like a fortress guarding the.entrance* of the city from thie^west is gone. lt is a church which neadYnot. have been mm stroyed but which was doomed from the; beginning' because it was built on the foundation of prejudice. A church to. be completely Christian must be super-national and should'not be restricted to a certain racial group or j niinorit^ among Christians -.|;St. Leo's ,was established Because the Irish could not worship harmoniously with the Germans at St. Elizabeth's. ^
Withiri;-thirty years the Mexican immigrants and other bpanish-speaicing Americans began to move into West Den ver. The Irish-Americans were then faced with the prospect of sharing pews and partaking of the Lord's Supper with them at St. Leo's for they too were predominately Catholic. Many of the Irish who had been instrumental in the building of1 .St. Leo's began to move up on the "hill;" Monsignor O'Ryan hoping to forestall this movement, yet recognizing the need to care for. the Catholics who spok@ Spanish/ and knowing that integration was not practical qsked the Theatine Fathers for help. / Father Martorell in 1923 be^an Molding services in the basement of St. Leo's for the Spafiish speaking Catholics! Here was another concession to prejudice and segregation! The Irish were privileged to worship in the main. auditorium and the Mexicans were confined to .the basement.

In the past ten years the image of St. Leo's was changing. It was an old church but the members were young. In the, last three years there were more baptisms than there were an the first three years of her existenceover 250. The number of baptisms is a yardstick of growth; These members were hot Mexicans, nor Spari-ish-spedking American 'or foreign immigrants'" They" were, American Catholics who were taught in American schools. They.. had pcm^hts who were bom in this country and' who ^spoke English better than they s^pokd'the tongue-of their grand-; parents. Their numbers were i increasing but not in sufficient : strength to preserve their
