DISTRICT MEETINGS SCHEDULED
The safety of school children oh our sheets and highways is a two-fold responsibilitythat of the driver and also of those who are responsible for training the children, according to the Metropolitan Chapter Of the National Safety Cbuncih The Chapter cautions that most accidents to these children are needless but avoiding them requires a lot of care.
The Chapter suggests that parents should send their children back- to school with a safety rule: "Train school-bound youngsters from the start to follow the safest, route; to be alert for traffic dangers; and when riding the school bus to mind the rules-and be considerate of others."
It contends that safety training is one of the best investments in a child's future.
As for drivers, the. Chapter reminds them that the biggest killer of children is accidents. And the accomplices are drivers who are reckless, thoughtless, and inattentive, especially in residential and school neighborhoods.. It cautions drivers, "When you drive, don't take a chance with a child's life and your own conscience."
"If every parent would pay heed to the training of their own fehildren while at the same time every driver would remain especially alert at this time of year the tragedy count would stay far below its usual figure," claims the Chapter. "Our traffic engineers, police and school administra-tors and teachers are doing tremendous jobs in trying1 to, make .the condiions as safe as possible. But, the result depends not nearly so much on them as it does on parents and drivers."
Meetings of several of the Districts of the West Side Improvement Association will be held this month to elect District Director arid to plan for programs and, Special activities in the months ahead. Everyone, who^ Jives or Works in the districts is invited to attend the meetings to help in making the Improvement Association as effective as possible: in working for a better neighborhood.

Health Department Issues Warning
Using a gas oven to heat the house can "be very dangerous, as one Denver family found out last week: they had to be taken to Denver General Hospital for emergency treatment.
These' people were lucky: they could have died, says Dr. Sam Johnson, Director of Public Health of the Denver Department of Health.
Dr. Johnson says the dangerous gas is carbon monoxide You can't see it, feel it or smell it, but is is very lethal.
Even a little carbon monoxide will cause headache, diz-; ziness and' sleepiness. This is why many people die in their i sleep of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Carbon monoxide can come from natural gas oVens, heaters, hot water heaters and furnaces; from cars; or from charcoal barbecues;.
Dr. Johnson recommends: Be sure the equipment you use is properly installed. Always keep a window open at least a little* in the house or in the car. Always be sure that you keep furniture, clothes, draperies, and children away from heaters and appliances.

FALL ACTIVITIES IN THE GARDEN
Herbert C. Gundell, Denver
County Extension Agent
Generally speaking the work that you can ao this tail to put your garden away will be an excellent investment oi time and1 eiiort toward your success next spring and summer. T here seems to be inadequate time to do everything during tne spring season anynow, usually due to inclement weather conditions, so during the fall se'ason when things are pleasant outside and the weather cooperates, you can do much to put your garden in good condition for the winter and spring.
During the fall season we must substantially reduce watering. Perhaps the only two items in the garden that should be watered yet during the fall are the lawn whenever it needs it and evergreens, especially those in the foundation planting around the house. Also there should be no commercial fertilizer used anymore this year, except perhaps on the lawn. If an application of commercial fertilizer is made before the 10th of October it will benefit the grass this fall and will .also start it off well next spring.
The mulching of perennials and strawberries should wait until we have had a good frost in the ground. Some people use straw or hay for this but I prefer the boughs from evergreen trees after the holiday season. These seem to be ideally suited for this purpose.
Roses that are in the open and quite exposed to weather conditions during the winter should be mounded. A mound of soil anywhere from 4 to 6 inches high is very adequate to project the graft or bud union where the patented variety was grafted on to a common understock. With this protection, the roses usually winter well and come up strong the following year.
Newly planted trees, ornamental or fruit trees, must be wrapped for protection during the first1 few winters. One of the best materials to use is a paper wrap material sold in 50-foot rolls at most garden supply stores.' In the absence of this paper wrap material burlap, heavy paper or several layers of newsprint can also be used. None of these, however, are as satisfactory as the paper wrap material which is impregnated and very effective.
Approximately November 15th, all Ornamental and shade trees and shrubs should receive a deep watering. This will replenish the moisture pool in the deeper soil areas and will protect the plants from dehydration during the dry winter
Beginning early in October and for .the next six weeks;; you can plant tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and many other fall planted but spring flowering bulbs. Most of these should be planted approximately eight to nine inches deep. Grape hyacinths, Dutch iris and crocus should be planted more shallow, usually around three to five inches deep.
Perennials can also be divided during the fall season. Among them are bleeding heart, shasta daisies, chrysan-
themums, oriental poppies, peonies, anq many others. Peonies should not be divided too often, about every seven to ten Vars is adequate. If you have not moved your iris or divided them for the last three years, they should also be separated out right now.
As soon as the frost has killed the foliage, of dahlias, cannas, and gladiolus, they can be dug, put in boxes and cured for about two weeks. Glads can then be kept and cleaned up later, while dahlias and cannas should be stored for the winter. There are various methods of storing dahlias, all slightly difficult. A good fruit cellar is probably the best place to store but not available to many city dwellers* I have found a deep pit as satisfactory as anything. There we place the roots in sawdust and provide moisture from time to time.
The fall season is also a good time to pick all your tools, make an inventory of what you have and what you may be missing and clean at least the metal surfaces of tools before you store them for the winter. All lawn mowers should be brought inside, the handle removed and plastic placed over the engine to keep dust and other dirt particles out of the moving portions of the engine.
Also with your garden debris, you can start a compost pit.1 Dig it about three feet deep and a desired size, and place about six inches of garden debris. Place over this one inch of natural fertilizer and one inch of soil and repeat this layering until the pit is full. Adequate water is necessary to get the composting and decomposing started in the compost pit.
You can see that there are many things to be done, so take your pick from the list and get your garden in good order for next year right now. If you have other questions, phone the County Extension office, 297-2716.

Baker Students Attend Summer School In N. H.
This past summer Martha Medrano and Michel Dyes, two ninth grade students at Baker Junior High School, attended a summer school at the Phillips Exeter Academy at Exeter, New Hampshire. They were among eight students chosen from the Denver Public Schools to attend under the SPUR program. Michel and Martha were accompanied by Emilio Esquibel, a teacher at Baker, who acted as observer for the Denver Public Schools.
The SPUR program was set up by the Phillips Exeter Academy to help deserving students attend a special summer school* The SPUR program offers, full scholarships for the summer to students from six cities throughout the United States. Cities participating in the SPUR program, besides Denver, were Cleveland, St Louis, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, and Washington, D. C
The. English classes for ninth graders gave the students a concentration of writing and reading. Under the writing portion they were given the opportunity to learn to express themselves more fully through writing, along with learning the added skills in grammar. Besides writing, the students were required to read six novels and tell how these novels fit toddy's world or how the writer may have been affected writing such a novel at this time. The novels the students were required to read were: War of the Worlds, The Invisible Man, Lost Horizons, Walk in the Sun, The Sea Wolf, and Great Tales of Action and Adventure.
The Math classes for ninth graders were set up for students who are starting Algebra for the first time or who have had some Algebra. The course in Math gave the students a chance to learn some basic skills in algebra or strengthen the skills learned the previous year in. preparation for Geometry.
The elective Earth Science showed how discoveries are made and understood. It also gave, the students a foundation for further laboratory courses. The Art course offered was for those students who have shown some ability or interest in Art and dealt with the basics of two and three dimensional design.
Besides the academic program, the students took part in sports, field trips, and extra-curricular activities..
1 The extra-curricular activities included such things as movies and dances on Saturday nights for relaxation. On every otherWednesday the students attended first-run movies in. conjunction with their English classes. Frequent field days were offered for the students along with barbeques. When the students first arrived they were taken on a steak fry at Rye Beach,, A final extracurricular activity was a concert by the band, string ensemble and glee club. Martha was a violinist with the string ensemble and Michel was one of the trumpeters in the band.
After seven weeks Michel and Martha boarded a plane back to T)enver, having made many friends from all over the United States. When asked if they would go back next summer, both Martha and Michel said they would.
