West High Says:
Dont Drop Out, Work In
Students in the West High area should not stay out pf school just because they feel they : can't afford it. A .work-, study program has been in ef-! iect for over two years .now j which gives students] who show a financial need, up to1 ten -hours of work per week. The ; students earn enough mon-%y to pay their book fees, laboratory fees, class dues, school supplies, and essentially anything else they're required to buy to remain in school.
Students work in non-profit agencies around the city such as any Denver Public School building, the Mariposa Health Center, headstart centers, and edult tutorial programs. Wages are paid by the Denver Public Schools.
To apply for the work-study program, all the student has to do is contact Dr. Rodney Anderson, West High's career counselor. If there is ct financial need, Dr. Anderson will place the student in a job whereby money can be earned to pay for the various school : necessities,,,m ^____U
Over eighty-five West High students are involved in the Work-study program this year indicating there is no; reason to stay home from school because of financial difficulties
In order to provide, a better opportunity for coverage of Christmas programs of schools and churches, the RECORDER will be out on December 15 next month. Get your news in early!

Denverites went to the polls on Tuesday, November 14, and turned down the School Bond issue by b vote of 43,983 to 20,381. I
As a result, long-needed improvements for West Side! schools will again be put off. The New Elmwood Committee has been working for somej time ,to have the building replaced, concerned about the inadequacy of the old structure lacking a gymnasium and an auditorium. Parents are also unhappy about inadequate lavatory facilities (located in the basement) and about the fact that the children must have lunch on tables just outside of the lavatory.
Fairmont parents have hoped that a proposed new addition would include facilities for a hot lunch program* West Sid-ers also hoped for improvements at West Highenlargement of the site (the smallest for any high school in the city), improvement of the school library: and improvement of athletic and vocational-technical education facilities. Now, all these things will have to wait.
West Siders worked actively fqr^/the bond issue, but it Wasn't enough. The^Wesf Side Improvement Association supported the bond issue, and people in the WSIA, as Well as others in the Elmwood PTA,
Rummage Sale
A Rummage and Bake Sale will be held Saturday, Novem ber 19th, sponsored by the Head Start Center at 228 Elati Time: 10 a. m. to 3 p. m.

worked actively in passing out the Improvement Association flyers and talking to voters. Mrs. Ben Hodges coordinated the West I High School area activities of the Citizens Committee for' the Bonds. Parents/ of children at Greenlee, Fairmont and Baker also worked on the campaign. Workers from the West Side Action Center knocked on doors and handed out election material to get the job done. Mrs. Phil Sanchez, for the New Elmwood Committee and the Elmwood PTA, helped prepare the West Side Improvement _Association flier.
Among those who put out time and effort for the bond1 issue in our area are Mrs. Ben-ita Lane, Mr. Salvador Delgado, Mr. Joe Blanscet, Mr. Jerry Soliz, Mrs. Alfonso Borrego, Mrs. C. L. Collins, Mrs. Jane Ramirez, Mrs. Stephania Maj, Mrs. Pete Martinez, Mrs. Jay Martinez, Mrs. Rosalie Padilla, Mrs. C. J. Partney, Mrs. Eunice Sperry, Mrs. Fedelino Chacon, Mrs. Frances Armijo, Mrs. Joe Avila, Mrs. Mary Cruz, and Mrs. Monty Borrego.
In spite of the efforts of all these people and Of West High, students, the bond issue failed. It did hot carry a single precinct in the West Side, though the vote at Elmwood School Was at least close.
FREE XMAS CALLS
More than 40 Denver-area families will telephone free Christmas greetings to relatives in uniform overseas, thanks to the Communications Workers of America, AFL-CIO.

High Rise Open
The 250 unit apartment house | for senior citizens, A. B. Hirschfeld Towers, at West Ellsworth! and Cherokee, is now open for occupancy. The Hirschfeld j Towers, operated by the Denver Housing Authority, contains 209 buffets, 34 one bedroom units and seven with two bedrooms.
The solariums and lounge areas are well designed and attractive, and the view of the city and the mountains from the upper floors is probably the best in town.
Mr. Leonard Chadwick, previously manager of Lincoln Park and South Lincoln Park, is the manager of Hirschfeld Towers. He reports that occupancy has been proceeding at a brisk pace. Anyone interested in moving to this new development should contact the Denver Housing Authority office, 1449. Navajo, phone 534-0821.
Police Aid
At the meeting of the Lincoln Park-South Lincoln Park Resident Council held November 2 at Auraria Community Center, Sgt. Ford of the Denver Police Department spate and answered questions about police services in the area. He encouraged people who had problems which required police help to call the police. If they cell about a disturbance but do not want police to come to their door, they should say so.
A question was raised as to why police do not do something about teenagers who make loud noise in the play areas in South Lincoln. Sgt. Ford pointed out that to some extent the buildings block noise and that patrol cars going through the area cannot. hear the noise so well. He pointed out the responsibility of citizens to report problems such as this.

Greenlee
"Sing Out 1968" was the answer last fall when teachers at Greenlee Elementary School, searched for a community relations program to represent best the heterogeneous backgrounds of students attending the school.
Mrs. Joyce Davis, music teacher, and Mr. Michael Connors, sixth grade teacher., collaborated to produce the program which, since the first of the year, has been featured at churches schools, May D&F, and at the opening of the Auraria Community Center.
Connors wrote the script and Mrs. Davis directs and plays the piano for 120 sixth graders and 45 fifth-grade- members of an after-school chorus. Miss Margaret Casey, physical education teacher, plays a guitar accompaniment.
First produced by a group ol Michigan college students, different versions of the "Sing Out" have, been presented. by Denver junior and senior high schools. Greenlee is the only Denver elementary school giving such a program.

On Monday, November 13, two assemblies were held at Greenlee Elementary School in observance of Veterans' Day. A 30-minute film portraying the history of our flag was shown by members of the United States Marine Corps. This was followed by the presentation of a new United States flag to each classroom.

VISTA PROGRAM IN DANGER
As many of you may already know, Congress is currently in debate over the amount af funds that should be given the Office of Economic Opportunity (O.E.O.) to continue to fight the war on poverty.
As a division of O.E.O., VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) is one of the agencies that is suffering because of the difficulties in passing the appropriation bill.
Congress was supposed to have passed the final budget bill by June 30, 1967, at which time the budget from last year expired The bill was delayed and emergency money was extended to enable all agencies to continue working.
On November 3, 1967, the VISTA's in Denver were notified that this emergency advance had run out as of Oct-23, 1967, and not to expect any further food' and living allowance until Congress passed the final appropriation bill.
The VISTA's have been waiting anxiously for news, but as of this writing nothing more is known about when funds will again be available. During this time, the VISTA's sent a telegram to President Johnson re-stating our dedication! and saying that with or without' food allowances we will stay with our projects, even if it meant getting part-time jobs so that we can pay our expenses.
Previously VISTA's received a monthly food and lodging allowance plus $75.00 a month, minus taxes, for personal expenses.
!; Smce this emergency has occurred. many people have come forward and offered assistance: and for this we are very grateful.
On behalf of the VISTA's, i especially those on the West Side, I would like to say thank you for all your thoughtfulness and generosity.
Sincerely,
Bee Wales, VISTA.

Elati Head Start
Recently Head Start children of morning and afternoon classes at 228 Elati and their mothers and teachers took a trip to the City Park zoo. Transportation was provided by volunteers who drove them to the park by car. Lunches were taken and eaten at the park where the children especially enjoyed a visit to the Children's Zoo. Head Start teachers and aides who went along on this trip were Miss Ogata, Mrs. Keller, Miss Norman, Mrs. Lopez and Mrs, Martinez.
