BOUNDARIES OF WSIA EXTENDED
At tiie General; .Meeting- of Side .Improvement Association, held Sunday, January 8, at Wesley Methodist Church, Association members voted to' extend: the WSIA boundaries south to Ellsworth, including homes on the south side of Ellsworth as well. The 75vpefsons in attdriddhce also heard attorney Barkley Clark and Councilman Houston Gibson talk about the proposed Skyline Urban Renewal Project, supported by Mr. Clark and opposed by:Mr. Gibson.
mittee's : 'xecommendations" were, given top priority through means of the power structure Tri the minds of the Action Councils, it appears that the D.O. Board consists of a power structulre which-means that there are: always a majority of members voting the opposite of the Action- Councils repre Sentatives "and the several agencies .that, support them.
This action, along with the many ways that the Neighbor-: hood Action Council have been, deceived led up, to a walk;*>vti^demonstration of Neighborhood Action Council representGitives along with people from ..several agencies of one nature oif another.
After i the walk-out demonstration the. Neighborhood Action Councils representatives attempted to seek solutions for overcoming; these difficulties of having a true grass roots representation in community action programs. Attempts were made to contact OEO advice by calling Kansas City and asking for a representative from OEO to come to Denver on behalf of the Neighborhood Action Coun-' 'P'1* * *
Dr. David Vanderburgh, Kansas City regional program analyst for Colorado, was with ias at a meeting held at 674 Elati St on January 13. At the

BOUNDARIES OF WSIA EXTENDED
At tiie General; .Meeting- of Side .Improvement Association, held Sunday, January 8, at Wesley Methodist Church, Association members voted to' extend: the WSIA boundaries south to Ellsworth, including homes on the south side of Ellsworth as well. The 75vpefsons in attdriddhce also heard attorney Barkley Clark and Councilman Houston Gibson talk about the proposed Skyline Urban Renewal Project, supported by Mr. Clark and opposed by:Mr. Gibson.
mittee's : 'xecommendations" were, given top priority through means of the power structure Tri the minds of the Action Councils, it appears that the D.O. Board consists of a power structulre which-means that there are: always a majority of members voting the opposite of the Action- Councils repre Sentatives "and the several agencies .that, support them.
This action, along with the many ways that the Neighbor-: hood Action Council have been, deceived led up, to a walk;*>vti^demonstration of Neighborhood Action Council representGitives along with people from ..several agencies of one nature oif another.
After i the walk-out demonstration the. Neighborhood Action Councils representatives attempted to seek solutions for overcoming; these difficulties of having a true grass roots representation in community action programs. Attempts were made to contact OEO advice by calling Kansas City and asking for a representative from OEO to come to Denver on behalf of the Neighborhood Action Coun-' 'P'1* * *

GENERAL PHARMACY *
The General Pharniacy which was formerly at 301 West 6th Avenue for 13 years has relocated at 300 Elati Street, phone 733-0692. They will continue to carry a fell line of drugs and sundries. Their hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., six days a week. There is a possibility that these hours may be lengthened later.
The owner, Mr. Charles E.
Kirk, stated that they felt fortunate in finding this place because of having to leave the other location quickly (they were in the block next to Denver General which was completely razed several weeks ago).
We feel that West Siders in the immediate locality of 300
