New books for the new year -ire as numerous as January snowflakes. We'll report about the most "sparkling" and interesting books at Byers Library.
Perhaps the one book most discussed the past few months is THE CONFESSIONS OF NAT TURNER. William Styron uses the meager facts of history and much imagination in his powerful novel, based on the Virginia slave uprising in 1831 led by Nat Turner.
The battle for possession of a child, Michel Benedek, whose parents have died in France at the hands of the Nazis, is the core of Robert Lewis' first novel, MICHEL, MICHELj The resulting legal, clerical, and emotional battles shaking both church and state over the fate of one child are powerfully related.
Agatha Christie's new mystery begins with- the following announcement in a local paper: "A murder has been announced and will take place on Friday, October 20, at Little Paddocks, at 6:30." Th§ book is entiled, A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED.

A-bove all, this is the story of a spectacular failure, a' man who | several times had: the world in his grasp, yet couldn't manage to hold onto it It is as interesting and well-written as MERIWETHER LEWIS, Richard Dillon's preceding big hit. \
Contrasts are the key-note for. JAPANESE LANTERN, Wim Swaan's lively, intelligent study of a land poised uneasily between the traditional and modem. The photographs add to the understanding and visual beauty of Japan and make this- book both different and enjoyable.

EDITORIALS Junk Car Problem Grows
Complaints are increasing in the West Side (and in other areas of Denver) about the unk cars which are being left in vacant lots and in back yards. Several years ago the housing inspection program was effective in ridding the leighborhood- of much junk. When it was discovered that rity ordinances were inadequate to deal with junk cars,
loss not have a place to take the junk. As a result, the West Side is increasingly cluttered with eyesores and hazards. The short-sighted budgeting, forced by City Council has limited the ability of city agencies to carry out effective inspection and removal ms.

New Pastor At Church Of God
We Want A Responsible Explanation
Once again we feel that we must question certain actions and possibly the motives of Denver Opportunity.
On January 4th, members of the Eastside and Westside Health Boards were contacted to attend a special meeting that evening at 7:00 p. rri. at the Platte Valley Action Center. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss, with an valuation team from Washington, D. p., what the roles in the community the Health Boards see for themselves.
The response from Health Board members was good, in-

In reply to this, one of the officials from Washington, D.

In light... of$ this,. another question was raised as rip why the Health Boards did noi receive documentation of the time spent by Manuel Salinas in service to the Health Boards since one half of his salary is paid by-the Health Centers grant and he is the liaison man between D. O. and the Health Boards.
Complaints were also registered about the seemingly constant refusal as "unnecessary expenses" by D.CX to the Health Board's requests for even small .things such as stationery with Health Board letterheads, a medical dictionary for the consultant, !a^ plaque, with the names of Westside1. Health Board members to place in the Health Center- (which could have been obtained at a reduced cost) and other such small items. It seems to some people that D.

New books for the new year -ire as numerous as January snowflakes. We'll report about the most "sparkling" and interesting books at Byers Library.
Perhaps the one book most discussed the past few months is THE CONFESSIONS OF NAT TURNER. William Styron uses the meager facts of history and much imagination in his powerful novel, based on the Virginia slave uprising in 1831 led by Nat Turner.
The battle for possession of a child, Michel Benedek, whose parents have died in France at the hands of the Nazis, is the core of Robert Lewis' first novel, MICHEL, MICHELj The resulting legal, clerical, and emotional battles shaking both church and state over the fate of one child are powerfully related.
Agatha Christie's new mystery begins with- the following announcement in a local paper: "A murder has been announced and will take place on Friday, October 20, at Little Paddocks, at 6:30." Th§ book is entiled, A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED.

Tf;' you'$ enjoyed THE CAT WHO COULD-READ BACKWARDS,, you Te in for ;a new treat when you check but THE CAT '.WHO ATE DAN? ISH MODERN, by Lillian Jack-son Braun. .. , :
i The biography of John Sutter is entitled, FOOL'S GOLD. A-bove all, this is the story of a spectacular failure, a' man who | several times had: the world in his grasp, yet couldn't manage to hold onto it It is as interesting and well-written as MERIWETHER LEWIS, Richard Dillon's preceding big hit. \
Contrasts are the key-note for. JAPANESE LANTERN, Wim Swaan's lively, intelligent study of a land poised uneasily between the traditional and modem. The photographs add to the understanding and visual beauty of Japan and make this- book both different and enjoyable.
Sports fans have a real sur prise in store whervtfyey choose MORE THAN A GAME, compiled by A. Lawrence Halnies. Unforgettable sports stories told by the great sports writers of the century and illustrated with award-winning photographs, give the reader visual and factual glimpses into the lives of their sports' heroes.

EDITORIALS Junk Car Problem Grows
Complaints are increasing in the West Side (and in other areas of Denver) about the unk cars which are being left in vacant lots and in back yards. Several years ago the housing inspection program was effective in ridding the leighborhood- of much junk. When it was discovered that rity ordinances were inadequate to deal with junk cars,
loss not have a place to take the junk. As a result, the West Side is increasingly cluttered with eyesores and hazards. The short-sighted budgeting, forced by City Council has limited the ability of city agencies to carry out effective inspection and removal ms.

New Pastor At Church Of God
We Want A Responsible Explanation
Once again we feel that we must question certain actions and possibly the motives of Denver Opportunity.
On January 4th, members of the Eastside and Westside Health Boards were contacted to attend a special meeting that evening at 7:00 p. rri. at the Platte Valley Action Center. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss, with an valuation team from Washington, D. p., what the roles in the community the Health Boards see for themselves.

Complaints were also registered about the seemingly constant refusal as "unnecessary expenses" by D.CX to the Health Board's requests for even small .things such as stationery with Health Board letterheads, a medical dictionary for the consultant, !a^ plaque, with the names of Westside1. Health Board members to place in the Health Center- (which could have been obtained at a reduced cost) and other such small items. It seems to some people that D.
