Vaccination Reminder
"Hurts for a secondprotects fbr Years" is a slogan parents- should remember when it comes time toi; give their children shots. There are shots now to protect children from polio, smallpox, diphtheria, whooping cough, and tetanus ^-diseases that- used to cause much sickness, crippling and death: ,, ...: . .
Many parents do not realize that children. should have all these, shots before they start to school, 'because when small children get the disease, they are sicker and more likely to have after effects.
. Denver's Well-Child Conferences are the perfect place to take children under five for their protective shots.
Anyone of any age can get shots from 8:00 a. m. to 4:00 p. m;, Monday through Fridav at the Disease Control Service, 760 Cherokfee* 'Street.
The shots' are free.
They hurt for a second-^-but they protect against disease- fpr years.

The shop dt the Denver area Boys' Club, located at 910 West 8th Avenue has been having quite a few participants making shoe boxes and bird houses which they either varnish or paint. We also mold plaster-paris which the boys get quite, a bit of enjoyment out of and many,.;of them turn out real Well. '
We expect to make sdme pi our own molds along this line as well as make other things as bird houses and shoe shine boxes. We hope to start making crystal sets in the near future which we will test out at the shop and the boys will be able to take home and use themselves.
z As summer ended .and school opened again, the Boys' Club swung, right into a new schedule of events for Fall and Winter. The Club was. closed for one' week as. all the boys were registering in school and the Club underwent a general clean-up and paint-up., With the re-opening, "winter hours" are now in effect3:00 to 5:30 p. m. and 6:45 to 9:00: p. m., Mondays through Fridays and 10:00 a .ms till 3:00 p.m. on Saturdays, .closed Sundays.
Some of the new1 events scheduled at the Club are a nine hole putt putt golf- course in the gym on Friday nights and color movies on different subjects of interest to the boys in the library, on Thursday nights Also there is a brand new "Skill Pool" table in the Game Room, which many boys have already found a lot of fun.

; Qur good friend Washington Herbert who;, has been Shop Director for the past several years has left us to work in San Francisco and the- boys hdve missed him. However the new Shop Director, Ed Seeber, has already made many new friends and he has brought some new ideas with him concerning the shop and has already put some of them into action. The number of boys seen in the shop each afternoon and evening prove he has a good operation.

We have been doing some thinking lately on the purposes and goals of a neighborhood newspaper. Certainly any newspaper's first task is to inform the public. Specifically, the purpose of the West Side Recorder is to inform West Side residents of local news of interest--with one ad-v ditional qualificationthat the news printed will improve or is about improvement in the area. It is rather like using the slogan "We print only the good news." Now we realize there is also much'bad news that could be printed and we are not trying tp pretend that bad news doesn't exist. However, there, (is sufficient publication of bad -news and there is no need for us to, bother repeating it. In addition since the West Side Recorder is sponsored by the West Side Improvement Association, it is only logical that its purpose is the publishing of news that will serve for improvement of the area.
We hope that each one of our readers feels that the West Side Recorder is at least partially achieving its goals. Every one of us who works each month tp help get this newspaper out is doing this because we feel it is part of our task
EDITORIAL
to make our neighborhood a better place to live. This must be the main motivation for. us to spend a good piece of time each month v to produce this paper. This has to be the main reason since there would be little other reason than a very small amount of "glory" because we are on the staff and have our names in the little box on the second page each month !
However it appears that there are some organizations whose purpose for existing is improvement who either think that we, are not helping to improve the neighborhood or else they don*t care about helping us do it. We speak specifically of some of the churches and schools in this area. Month after month the staff must personally contact these organizaions if we hope to receive any rieWs from them and then many times it is still useless as they have no news. We have always believed that churches particularly should help improve a neighborhood. With reluctance we have come to the conclusion that some churches either don't care about improving the neighborhood or worse don't want to or else are just plain- lazy 'to even take advantage of the free
publicity 7 we offer them. Perhaps we have come to some wrong conclusions, but there-doesn't seem to be any other-reasons that we can find.
We will state once more-how and when information, about past and coming events* or. items of interest may be offered for publication. If you. are interested in helping us, present the area news, we. would suggest you clip the following and ppst it at some convenient place. Since the paper comes oiit once a month on the Friday after the 15th of each month, news should be to us by the. 10th of .each month. Remember that it is a monthly paper; plan ahead and include all activities from the 15th of the current month1 to the 15th of : the followings month. Either call the information to the West Side Improvement Association, at 244-3301; or mail the news to the West Side Recorder, 768 Santa Fe Drive, Denver.' Remember we do try to print all news given us but sometimes we do need to cut copy because of lack of space. This is much easier to do than to find fillers at the last minute. We hope that the West Side Recorder will continue to help improve the West Side.

GETTING YOUR MONEY WORTH
Copyright 1965 by Consumers Union of. U. S... Inc., Mount Vernon, New York ELECTRIC HEATERS: ONE THIRD MORE DANGEROUS
A portable electric heater is handy as a supplementary heat source, for occasional use. In its October issue, CONSUMER REPORTS gives ratings by brand name and model number of 39 electric heaters, ranging in price from $12 to $49.95. Five models, mostly | medium-priced, were found to be of good enough quality to receive check ratings.
But quality is by no means the rule.- In experiments intended to simulate real-life hazards 14 modelsmore than one-third of all those tested were judged' dangerous enough to be rated Not Acceptable.,
It's possible, for instance, that a heater may be knocked over, or that an item of clothing may fall on it. When these accidents were duplicated experimentally, some heaters caused cotton cloth to burst into flames .and others severely damaged a rug.. Even the presence of a tip-over switch to turn the heater off if it fell, over did not always give complete protection. One unit remained hot long enough to do damage.*
Some heaters, even while upright, overheated the floor enough to damage heat-sensitive flooring like,asphalt tile.
Several models were found unsafe for use afO'und children becquse the grille openings were wide enough to admit a child's hand or toy.
Still another dariger is electrical leakage. Heaters are sometimes used in bathrooms and other damp places. Af-: ter test exposure to heat and humidity, a number of models developed electrical leakage to the housing, severe enough to consitute a serious shock hazard.'.
Even on better models there is no guarantee that they will riot become shock hazards as their1 insulation deteriorates. It is important to avoid touching a heater or any other plugged-iri appliance while touching a ground, such as a water faucet or radiator, or standing on a damp floor.
