Proposed A. D. C. Changes Harmful
HR 12080, the Social Security Amendments currently before Congress, raises some serious questions in several provisions applying to the A.D. C..; program. The program would require all mothers on Aid to Dependent Children to seek work and to accept training if needed. While such goals are of course appropriate for some, it is questionable if they are appropriate for all.
How can Bill No. HR 12080 help welfare recipients? The bill may be passed but how can the Department of Welfare hope to enforce it? At present there are many people m manpower training who are not able to' find jobs in the field they were trained in.
It appears that the bill, if passed at this time, can only cause more unrest and riots. The bill could be very bad if a person has no job experience at especially if there are no jabs open in the field in which she received training. The packing houselherd in Denver is | planning to mgvei They will be taking some employees "With them. The others are to stay and' many will be refraiiiedV Are thfer^gOingr to be jobs available for these Working people? If a city budget cut ;iS: approved in Denver there will bd many employees on the unemployment rolls. What type of; child care is to be set up for children: of working mothers? There are some who havO been able, to go into train-Jngprograms and get a job because they had a caseworker who is!: really interested- and willing tp help.
Will womeii With -large families really be given consideration?. : Is it better for all of the 'mathers- to work rather than stay at home caring for the children? What is to. happen to mothers who have limited educations and those Who'are handicapped in one Way Or another?: What will be idone;.to see to it that, pay is Adequate for working mothers? Currently, pay scales for many jobs for women with limited education are totally impraetical^hospital work for theGity of Denver for instance.
Another;. provision'; of the proposed law would deny assistance to 'children after a given pbfcdentage; of families in a state Werereceiving A.D.C. Are these- children to starve?
Metro State Sites Considered
The Trustees of the State Colleges of Colorado are selecting a site .for Metropolitan State College and' are now considering three locations. The top two "are: "Auraria," a site bounded on the south by West Colfax, on the east by Speer boulevard, on the north by We-watta, and on the west by 3rd Street; and "Civic Center," an area bounded by West Colfax on the north, Mariposa on the west, West 6th Ave. on the south, Delaware On the east, and Speer on the northeast. The third location is north of Bears Stadium.
The Board of the West Side Improvement Association has sent a letter to Metropolitan State College opposing the "Civic Center" site and: supporting the "Auraria" site just north of Colfax. West Siders would like the college near by, but many people are concerned that the "Civic Center" site would cause problems because of the large number of people who would have to be relocated and because homeowners in the area would be unlikely to get enough for their homes to compensate them for the im-provemens which ^many have made. The "Civic Center" site would also put Lincoln and South Lincoln Park Homes in an isolated, pocket.
. The Y'Auraria' 'site ,is: in' 'ah area of rapidly declining resi^ dential .population. It is zoned for industry. The plan fpr that area would preserve the religious buildings there. It would also, provide a college close to West-Side sthdents who. might Want to live., at home.

ELECTS
At their meeting on October1 10, the Board of Directors of the West Side Improvement Association voted to support the school bond issue at the special election, Tuesday, November 14. Property taxpayers eligible to vote in this election.
The West Side Improvement Association and its- New Elmwood Committee, established June 2, 1964, have been work Ing for a new Elmwood School to replace the outmoded, inadequate building now in. use. n August, 196.4, a petition with over 800 names was presented to the Board of Education urging construction of a new Elmwood. In April, 1965, a brochure entitled "The Need for a New Elmwood School" prepared by the New Elmwood Committee, was presented to lhe Board of Education.
West Siders working .for a -ew Elmwood were told by school officials that all the

The mother of a dough er now in Baker Junior High she points to 'the need for strong support of the: school >ond issue as one of ,tfie most important tasks for the West Side Improvement Association at this time. She wants to see needed improvements at Vest High School, which her daughter Melody will soon be attending.
pay-as-you-go ..money for the schools had to be used for :\ew areas where there were no schools at all. The only hope for a new Elmwood, they were told, is in a bond issue.
In December, 1965, the Board of the West Side Improvement Association voted to support a new' petition campaign, promising that signers would support a bond issue if a new Elmwood were included. The New Elmwood Committee circulated the petitions and submitted them to the, Board. of Education.
The current school bond pro- posal provides for the replacement of Elmwood School at the ame site. West Siders who want to help get the bond issue approved should call the West Side Improvement Association office, 244-3301. While renters cannot vote on the bond issue, they can ask property owners whom they know to vote for it.

EDITORIAL
WALKS REPAIRED
In the last; issue of the Recorder, an editorial appeared which was critical of the ac-tivity of the city engineers in the West vSi'de. The editorial .stated that six requests had gone in on sidewalk conditions since the beginning Of; May, with the walks still defective and no answer from the city engineers. Mr; Howard Pigg called the office of the West Side Improvement Association to protest the editorial, and in the course, of the .discussion if was establishedv that, walks listed in two of the requests had been repaired, fully or in part, and that action by., the city .was iri process; in ; two' other cases. Mr, ;Pigg prom ised to have the J remaining two cases 'looked IhtoJ He also stated that his office would make a special effort to have the sidewalks in the West Side brought up to standard.
We regret the inaccuracy of our implication that all the walks were still defective. The city engineers have been taking J^epS on some of the other complaints as well. ..Unfortu-. nately, there has not been two-way71 communication on these. We appreciate Mr. Pigg's plan to inspect West Side sidewalks i to make foot traffic safer.

WHY YOU SHOULD SUPPORT THE SCHOOL BOND ISSUE NOV. 14
The school bond issue, if approved by voters November 14, will improve schools -in Denver and the West Side in a number of waysneeded improvements at West High School, a new Elmwood, an intermediate school program to serve elementary school youngsters better. Like everything else, the school bond issue costs money, but unlike many other things, it doesn't cost you very much. The owner of a $15,000 house would have to-pay $5 more per year in taxes.
For $5 on a $15,000 house less on a less valuable home-the West Side property owner can have important public improvements to go along with the upgrading of private-property in the area, brought; about by the inspechon program for which residents have-roted at meetings of the West-Side Improvement Association.. Public improvemens in the form: of better schools can only ?erve to increase the value of property in the area.
But what if the voters turn down the- school bond issue? The results are clear. Young families looking for a place to live will look elsewhereout; of the neighborhood and out of the city. They will look for suburb? that care, about good schools.. In the meantime, it is likely that Denver will become tnore and more a city of older people, on fixed incomes and poor peoplepeople unable to pay for the kinds of services needed by a big city.. Businesses will follow the people to1 the suburbs. And so the -voter who votes to defeat the bond issue to spve himself maybe five dollars a year will find that he has lost a lot more.

INTERMEDIATE SCHOOLS IN THE PLANS r
Calendar
One part of the bond issue coming up for a vote on November 14 is the development of intermediate schools in part of Denver, mainly in areas where old buildings are to be replaced. In the West Side,
Jreenlee School will be the intermediate School.
The intermediate, school is a neighborhood school serving a. larger area than the regular elementary school. The area served Would be something more like that of a junior high school.. Grades 4, 5 and 6 are the -intermediate grades. Other former elementary schools in the area of the intermediate school will become primary, schools, with grades kindergarten through third.
Bringing in the intermediate
school program provides sev-! era! benefits to the children. Because there would be fewer grades in a school, it should be possible to keep a better stock of supplies for the particular grade, level. In the intermediate school,. there is greater possibility of grouping the children for better learning because there would be more children of a given grade lev-ill Many teachers feel thht the age span is too great in the elementary school as now set up.
While the intermediate school plan will'in some cases mean some busing for very short distances, the new school construction should eliminate almost all of the busing for long distances which is currently being done.

. . 'Tips.
Improvements For West High School
One reason for West Side Im: provement Association support of the bond issue is ^the concern the Association has had* about needed, improvements at West High School. West Siders, with the .support of the Association, have gone; to the1 Board of Education: to present the needs Df West High. |
They have pointed to a- need for more adequate industrial arts | facilities and equipment, for a water safety program, for a girls' gym, and 'for more ground. West High is on the smallest site of any of the Denver high schools. One consequence of the small site is West's Unusual east-west football field: which puts the sun iii the eye's, of players.
November .14 gives Denver property, tax payers the chance to cprrect these shortcomings at West. We have been promised that approval of the bond issue will provide for-all of these needs.'- '/

Monthly Newspaper of the West Side Improvement Association
October, 1967
EDITORIAL
Proposed A. D. C. Changes Harmful
HR 12080, the Social Security Amendments currently before Congress, raises some serious questions in several provisions applying to the A.D. C..; program. The program would require all mothers on Aid to Dependent Children to seek work and to accept training if needed. While such goals are of course appropriate for some, it is questionable if they are appropriate for all.
How can Bill No. HR 12080 help welfare recipients? The bill may be passed but how can the Department of Welfare hope to enforce it? At present there are many people m manpower training who are not able to' find jobs in the field they were trained in.
It appears that the bill, if passed at this time, can only cause more unrest and riots. The bill could be very bad if a person has no job experience at especially if there are no jabs open in the field in which she received training. The packing houselherd in Denver is | planning to mgvei They will be taking some employees "With them. The others are to stay and' many will be refraiiiedV Are thfer^gOingr to be jobs available for these Working people? If a city budget cut ;iS: approved in Denver there will bd many employees on the unemployment rolls. What type of; child care is to be set up for children: of working mothers? There are some who havO been able, to go into train-Jngprograms and get a job because they had a caseworker who is!: really interested- and willing tp help.
Will womeii With -large families really be given consideration?. : Is it better for all of the 'mathers- to work rather than stay at home caring for the children? What is to. happen to mothers who have limited educations and those Who'are handicapped in one Way Or another?: What will be idone;.to see to it that, pay is Adequate for working mothers? Currently, pay scales for many jobs for women with limited education are totally impraetical^hospital work for theGity of Denver for instance.
Another;. provision'; of the proposed law would deny assistance to 'children after a given pbfcdentage; of families in a state Werereceiving A.D.C. Are these- children to starve?
Metro State Sites Considered
The Trustees of the State Colleges of Colorado are selecting a site .for Metropolitan State College and' are now considering three locations. The top two "are: "Auraria," a site bounded on the south by West Colfax, on the east by Speer boulevard, on the north by We-watta, and on the west by 3rd Street; and "Civic Center," an area bounded by West Colfax on the north, Mariposa on the west, West 6th Ave. on the south, Delaware On the east, and Speer on the northeast. The third location is north of Bears Stadium.
The Board of the West Side Improvement Association has sent a letter to Metropolitan State College opposing the "Civic Center" site and: supporting the "Auraria" site just north of Colfax. West Siders would like the college near by, but many people are concerned that the "Civic Center" site would cause problems because of the large number of people who would have to be relocated and because homeowners in the area would be unlikely to get enough for their homes to compensate them for the im-provemens which ^many have made. The "Civic Center" site would also put Lincoln and South Lincoln Park Homes in an isolated, pocket.
. The Y'Auraria' 'site ,is: in' 'ah area of rapidly declining resi^ dential .population. It is zoned for industry. The plan fpr that area would preserve the religious buildings there. It would also, provide a college close to West-Side sthdents who. might Want to live., at home.
West Siders Support School Bond Issue

ASSOCIATION
ELECTS
At their meeting on October1 10, the Board of Directors of the West Side Improvement Association voted to support the school bond issue at the special election, Tuesday, November 14. Property taxpayers eligible to vote in this election.
The West Side Improvement Association and its- New Elmwood Committee, established June 2, 1964, have been work Ing for a new Elmwood School to replace the outmoded, inadequate building now in. use. n August, 196.4, a petition with over 800 names was presented to the Board of Education urging construction of a new Elmwood. In April, 1965, a brochure entitled "The Need for a New Elmwood School" prepared by the New Elmwood Committee, was presented to lhe Board of Education.
West Siders working .for a -ew Elmwood were told by school officials that all the
City Approves Conservation Program
Mrs. William J. Dabrowski of 1115 Inca is the newly-eleqt-ed -president of the West Side improvement Association. The wife of Frank Dabrowski, she has. been, actiye^h^the Assc>-">dtion for a number of years She operates a laundry in her home. The mother of a dough er now in Baker Junior High she points to 'the need for strong support of the: school >ond issue as one of ,tfie most important tasks for the West Side Improvement Association at this time. She wants to see needed improvements at Vest High School, which her daughter Melody will soon be attending.
pay-as-you-go ..money for the schools had to be used for :\ew areas where there were no schools at all. The only hope for a new Elmwood, they were told, is in a bond issue.
In December, 1965, the Board of the West Side Improvement Association voted to support a new' petition campaign, promising that signers would support a bond issue if a new Elmwood were included. The New Elmwood Committee circulated the petitions and submitted them to the, Board. of Education.
The current school bond pro- posal provides for the replacement of Elmwood School at the ame site. West Siders who want to help get the bond issue approved should call the West Side Improvement Association office, 244-3301. While renters cannot vote on the bond issue, they can ask property owners whom they know to vote for it.

EDITORIAL
WALKS REPAIRED
In the last; issue of the Recorder, an editorial appeared which was critical of the ac-tivity of the city engineers in the West vSi'de. The editorial .stated that six requests had gone in on sidewalk conditions since the beginning Of; May, with the walks still defective and no answer from the city engineers. Mr; Howard Pigg called the office of the West Side Improvement Association to protest the editorial, and in the course, of the .discussion if was establishedv that, walks listed in two of the requests had been repaired, fully or in part, and that action by., the city .was iri process; in ; two' other cases. Mr, ;Pigg prom ised to have the J remaining two cases 'looked IhtoJ He also stated that his office would make a special effort to have the sidewalks in the West Side brought up to standard.
We regret the inaccuracy of our implication that all the walks were still defective. The city engineers have been taking J^epS on some of the other complaints as well. ..Unfortu-. nately, there has not been two-way71 communication on these. We appreciate Mr. Pigg's plan to inspect West Side sidewalks i to make foot traffic safer.

WHY YOU SHOULD SUPPORT THE SCHOOL BOND ISSUE NOV. 14
The school bond issue, if approved by voters November 14, will improve schools -in Denver and the West Side in a number of waysneeded improvements at West High School, a new Elmwood, an intermediate school program to serve elementary school youngsters better. Like everything else, the school bond issue costs money, but unlike many other things, it doesn't cost you very much. The owner of a $15,000 house would have to-pay $5 more per year in taxes.
For $5 on a $15,000 house less on a less valuable home-the West Side property owner can have important public improvements to go along with the upgrading of private-property in the area, brought; about by the inspechon program for which residents have-roted at meetings of the West-Side Improvement Association.. Public improvemens in the form: of better schools can only ?erve to increase the value of property in the area.
But what if the voters turn down the- school bond issue? The results are clear. Young families looking for a place to live will look elsewhereout; of the neighborhood and out of the city. They will look for suburb? that care, about good schools.. In the meantime, it is likely that Denver will become tnore and more a city of older people, on fixed incomes and poor peoplepeople unable to pay for the kinds of services needed by a big city.. Businesses will follow the people to1 the suburbs. And so the -voter who votes to defeat the bond issue to spve himself maybe five dollars a year will find that he has lost a lot more.

INTERMEDIATE SCHOOLS IN THE PLANS r
Calendar
One part of the bond issue coming up for a vote on November 14 is the development of intermediate schools in part of Denver, mainly in areas where old buildings are to be replaced. In the West Side,
Jreenlee School will be the intermediate School.
The intermediate, school is a neighborhood school serving a. larger area than the regular elementary school. The area served Would be something more like that of a junior high school.. Grades 4, 5 and 6 are the -intermediate grades. Other former elementary schools in the area of the intermediate school will become primary, schools, with grades kindergarten through third.
Bringing in the intermediate
school program provides sev-! era! benefits to the children. Because there would be fewer grades in a school, it should be possible to keep a better stock of supplies for the particular grade, level. In the intermediate school,. there is greater possibility of grouping the children for better learning because there would be more children of a given grade lev-ill Many teachers feel thht the age span is too great in the elementary school as now set up.
While the intermediate school plan will'in some cases mean some busing for very short distances, the new school construction should eliminate almost all of the busing for long distances which is currently being done.

The teacher was not removed and' the danger, appears to be past. West Siclers expressed' concernto ^ school officials, and once inore community; alertness and-'action have paid off.
. . 'Tips.
Improvements For West High School
One reason for West Side Im: provement Association support of the bond issue is ^the concern the Association has had* about needed, improvements at West High School. West Siders, with the .support of the Association, have gone; to the1 Board of Education: to present the needs Df West High. |
They have pointed to a- need for more adequate industrial arts | facilities and equipment, for a water safety program, for a girls' gym, and 'for more ground. West High is on the smallest site of any of the Denver high schools. One consequence of the small site is West's Unusual east-west football field: which puts the sun iii the eye's, of players.
November .14 gives Denver property, tax payers the chance to cprrect these shortcomings at West. We have been promised that approval of the bond issue will provide for-all of these needs.'- '/
