RELIGIOUS ART OF THE SOUTHWEST AT DENVER MUSEUM
The Denver Art Museum is presenting.a spectacular exhibition, "Santos and Kachi-nas", featuring religious art of the Southwest, July 17 through September 19. "Santos and Kachinas". was especially assembled for the tourist season so that visitors to our city may also have the opportunity to view objects from cultures which are indigenous to this part of the country*
The exhibition explores two art forms, each a dramatic expression of religious faith as developed by the Spanish A-merican and Indian peoples of the Southwest. "Santos" are representations of saints and display the heritage of Chris-tanity in the work of Spanish American carftsmen known as "Santeros". Throughout southwestern Colorado and Northern New Mexico, Santos are

in two forms: carved statues (bultos) and painted wood panels (Retablos). Each re veals, the ingenuousness of the folk artist. Isolated as this region was from the early 18th to the middle 19th century, church aft was free from old world stylization. Thus, while patterned after and influenced by early Spanish form and tradition, the Santos disclose a lively, sometimes naive, but always a sincere interpretation of the people's devotion. They are an integral part of Catholic ritual and pageantry*
The sqcqnd part of the exhibition is devoted to "Kach-inas," representations of the gods of the Pueblo Indians, These people live along the Rio Grande in New Mexico and as' far west as the Hopis in Arizona. Today these tribes still retain much of the rich heritage of their forefathers They have developed complex religious practices which dom inate much of their lives. In their rituals the men wear masks, each one representing a particular spirit or "Kach-ina", and dramatically re-enact the role of the gods. Costumes, masks, dolls, headdresses and other paraphernalia in the dis play recreate many of these ceremonial rites.
The Denver Art Museum is open to the public free of charge during the following hours: Sundays, 2 to 5; Mon days, 1 to 5; Tuesdays through Saturdays, 9 to 5.j Labor Day the Museum will be open to 5.

Elsewhere in the paper this month is an article telling the results of the Clean-Up Campaign in the spring of 1964 fori the area bounded by West Eighth Avenue, Santa Fe Drive West First Avenue and Acoma Street. We would recommend you read it if you have not already done so.
We call attention to this because we feel it is quite an impressive list of accomplishments. Who brought about these improvements to our area? Every West Sider who helped with the clean-up campaign, who lent his support to the effort, who did his share of cleaning and fixing up can share the credit for these improvements.
Sometimes it is easy to become discouraged in the efforts to make our West Side a better place to live. It seems that everything achieved is preceded by much time and effort plus delays, and then there are times it seems that nothing has been acomplished. But then, we read a list of what has been done in just one area of the West Side and we realize our efforts have not been without results. It revives our ambitions to improve our community..
We need to have our ambitions renewed'. There is never time to relax because of our past accomplishments. Neighborhood improvement is never finished; it is a continuing job, from day to day, year to year. As we see what has been accomplished, let us renew our efforts as citizens to make the West Side the best place to live in Denver.
Despite heavy rainstorms and conflicting meetings, a group of thirty-seven people gathered at StM Joseph's Parish Hall, on July. 22nd to vote on the West Side Improvement Association By-Laws and to'hearMr. Joe Barry speak.
Mr. Dan Martinez presided over the meeting. Those district directors present were introduced and Father Nugent was thanked for use" of the hail.
Copies of the proposed By-Laws, which had already been published for three consecutive months in The Recorder, were available to everyone at the meeting. The proposed By-Laws were read, followed by discussion. After a change of wording in on article, the By-Laws were voted on and passed by an almost unanimous vote* There was one vigorous dissent.
The remainder of the evening, was given to Mr. Joe Barry, Administrator of the Community Development Agency. Mr. Barry described the program of the Community Development Agency and some of the activities Which will affect the West Side. He pointed out that the agency exists to help communities but does not enter an area unless asked by the community.
Mr.;* Barry also had words of praise for West Siders. He pointed to improvements in our neighborhood as proof that interested people can better their community if they are willing to work at it.
A question period followed Mr. Barry's talk and the meeting was adjourned at 9:30 .p.m.
The Lincoln Park Homes Service Group was begun in 1958. A year earlier, Mrs-Simmons started a Service-Group at the Mile Hi Senior Center. Mrs. Simmons says; that the Lincoln group has fifteen regulars attending their sessions.

The problems facing youn people in school are many*. One is the important questions, of deciding how much, education is enough. The choice la a hard one, especially for those who find no joy in classwark* Some see no value in whafe they are studying. They fail to understand the relationship between more schooling now and their own .improved chance for lifelong job success* A million boys and girls/ youn men and women, each-, year, make the wrong decision and drop out of school. By doin so, they doom themselves, for these persons will have trouble finding work since. they are able t6 compete only for the dwindling opportunities in unskilled labor. They are the last to be hired, receive the lowest pay, and are the first to be laid off. Frequently/ their jobs can be takeri over by machines. . ;
High school students,, there is real value in staying im school through graduation L You will be in a better position to compete for worth-while, good-pay in jobs.
You will be better suited? for promotion, more likely to find another job if you should be lead off for any reason.
You will be better able tri*> train yourself for that reaL-ly good job you may decide upon five or twenty^ five years from now.

ANNUAL MEETING OF TRLCOUNTY TUBERCULOSIS ASSOCIATION
At the Annual luncheon meeting of the Denver and Tri-County Tuberculosis Association, Doctor Carl W. Tempel, retiring president of the Association, reported on some of the activities of the Association during the past year.
Doctor Tempel said that in 1964, the Association gave 39,126 free chest x-rays; 324 x-rays showed some evidence of tuberculosis infection; 696 films indicated other findings. The Association continued the loan of its portable x-ray unit to the Denver County Jail. Dur- j ing the year there were 5759 x-rays taken with 42 films indicating TB infection, and 88 x-rays showed other finings.
Doctor Tempel stated that health information materials on TB and other respiratory diseases had been furnished to schools, businesses, and professional people. The Patient Services Committee planned and conducted activities to meet some of the personal and recreational needs of tuberculosis patients hospitalized in Denver, which could not be provided by official health and' welfare agencies.
He said all of these programs were made possible by the Annual Christmas Seal Campaign.
Doctor Tempel reported that more than 50,000 new cases of TB are found each year in the United States and almost 10,000 people die from it. In Colorado last year there were 290 new active cases reported,
I want to compliment the City Park Commission for tne new facility at the ball field in Lincoln Park. We note that every evening there are two games played, one being under lights. A fair size crowd is on hand to support their favorites. This is something the West Siders can support. Come down and see these young folks do a real professional style of playing softball.
I note that there is a wonderful amphitheater in Lincoln Park., It has never been utilized since I came to the West Side. It has a well built stage and, I am sure, could support a fair size band. This could be used for concerts, plays and other things of that nature. The question is WHY isn't this being done? I think a good cultural project would be to find out what would be necessary to utilize this beautiful Lincoln Park. I am sure the City of Denver' built that theater for use.

Sergeant John Leavitt of the Juvenile Bureau, Denver Police, Department, told a District 5 meeting on August 4 at the First Bethany Lutheran Church Parish House that the police are picking up children for violation of curfew. During 1964, 152 children were brought before Juvenile Court for curfew violation. He also noted that parents who allow their children to violate curfew may be fined up to $300 and sentenced for not more than 90 days in the city jail.
The curfew ordinance applies, to boys and girls under 18 and forbids them to be on the streets or in establishments open to the public after 10:30 p.m. The time is extended to 11:30 p. m. on Friday and Saturday, and the ordinance makes certain exceptions for children accompanied by a responsible adult, for those who are engaged in employment after the curfew hour, and for those out for some reasonably necessary purpose.
Sergeant Leavitt said that anyone concerned about curfew violators should feel free to call the police. He suggests a contact with the parents as a first step, if the person knows who the children are.
