College Important:
West Side Efforts Should Continue
Metropolitan State College is an urban college to provide education for living and working in' the city. Dr. Kenneth Phillips, President of Metro College, told the February 25 meeting sponsored by the West Side Improvement Association. In order to be useful in its unique college function, the school must be "physically and psychologically accessible."
Dr. Robert O'Dell, Administrative Dean, at Metro, described the process of selecting the place for the College. In terms of central location .foi the Metropolitan- area, the Au-raria site was recommended by the planning group. The Auraria site, north of Colfax Avenue and west of Speer Blvd., now has fewer residential buildings to be removed than other suitable areas, and would be eligible for Urban Benewal assistance in obtaining the land.
Business Help
Central area businesses are working to help finance planning costs for the Auraria site, and West Side businesses may also be asked to help, according to Philip Milstein, Executive Director of the Downtown Denver Improvement As-saeidSbn. Mi'.* Milstein spoke at the meeting, congratulating the West Side Improvement Association for their work in improving the area. Cooperation with housing, inspection and other improvement activities has prevented the West Side from running dawn, but continued community effort is needed. Locating Metro College north of Colfax can be a boost for the businesses and residences south of Colfax, in the West Side.
Fund Requests 1969
State Senator Allegra Saun- j ders, and State Representative i Wayne Knox, were present at tire meeting. Both are members of Education Committees of the Legislature, and reported that they expect requests for funds for beginning construction at Metro to come to the Legislature in 1969. About sixty persons attended the February 25 meeting, which was chaired by Mrs. C. L. Collins, a member of the Board of the Improvement Association.
In March, the Commission n Higher Education approved tile Auraria site for Metropolitan State Collegeif the City f Denver will, provide the land to the State. The Commission indicated ..that future state college locations will depend on contributions of land, rather than objective consideration of appropriate locations. The West Sid.. Improvement Association 'has written to the Commission on Higher Education urging that more attention be given to the State's responsibly in providing education to Denver's low-income communities.

Copy of a Letter from the West Side Improvement Association to the Colorado
Commtssicm on Higher Education
March 21, 1968
Gentlemen:
The West Side Improvement Association has recognized the importance of Metropolitan State College as a real resource for residents of Denver, particularly those living in the Inner City areas and low-income communities. Through the Association newspaper, the West Side Recorder, information about the college has been presented to the West Side. A number of West Side residents are now attending Metro College.
When the site location process was under way, the West Side Improvement Association seriously objected to consideration of the "Civic Center" area as designated in the final recommendations, because of the effect of displacing such a large number of middle* and low-income tenants and property owners. The Improvement Association supported consideration of tRe "Auraria" site, as an area with a much smaller residential population and generally deteriorating neighborhood. The central location of Auraria in the total metropolitan area, and the nearby availability of employment and educational resources, make it accessible to the total community, and especially to those? residents, of deprived areas who do not find it possible to attend the existing colleges. The "urban college" concept is important as a new way of making higher education relevant The recent Riot Commission report suggests' some of the results of continuing to ignore the needs of Inner City residents..
The recent action of the Commission on Higher Education, as reported in the newspapers, seems to jeopardize the objective planning for Metropolitan State College, and other colleges, by insisting that land for colleges must be contributed' to the State of Colorado. Aside from the obiective questions as to possible additional costs for utilities and land development in some locations which might be contributed, the relationship of college location to educational purposes seems to be forgotten. With a large share of the State income coming from Denver, it does not seem unreasonable to expect that the State of Colorado might have a real obligation to provide appropriate higher education in Denver. :1 ;
Therefore, by action of the Board of Directors of the West Side Improvement Association at their regular meeting on March 11, 1968, it is resolved to:
a. Support the recommendation of the Commission on Higher Education that the "Auraria" site be approved for the location of Metropolitan State College, and
b. Urge the'Commission on Higher Education to consider the obligation of the State of Colorado in helping to acquire the site, as well as to continue to develop the physical and educational resources of the College, in order that the'site selection may be based on objective location factors and not primarily on competitive. bidding by provision of free land.
Sincerely,
(Mrs.) Wilma J. Dabrowski President

Editorial
What Happened?
Many Recorder readers read the article last month about censorship of a program on consumer fraud broadcast by Channel 6. It appeared that the school board, which is responsible for the policy at Channel 6, and the director of the station were scared out of reshowing the broadcast by a. group of Colorado's prominent Republican lawmakers. This month we have a sequel.
On Tuesday evening, February 27, a group of mothers from the West Side appeared oh a Channel 6 program^ "The Other Side of ADC," speaking about problems and concerns of living on an ADC budget. Those of you who saw the program may have thought it wasn't as controversial as it could have been, and that there are many more problems that were not mentioned. Previous to the show the same-group had filmed a program that DID present other real problems. The women were told that the filmed program would be shown, but it was not.
Why? The moderator of the show and the women all stood behind' everything that was said. But Channel 6 would notnot even if a disclaimer was run and equal time given to those criticized. Is Channel 6 again being intimidated? Are they being pressured by someone? Or are they afraid of pressure from somewhere? Maybe they are afraid of con-" troversy. Then why do they plan controversial shows at all?
Channel 6 is operated by the Denver Public Schools. The schools are funded through property owners' taxes and federal money, to which we all contribute. Many taxpayers are wondering just what their tax money is going toward. Certainly; not toward informing them about contro-I versial issues in Denver.
. Channel 6, have you done it again?

Further information was given on the possibility of mobile dental units to serve the area. IF these units are started, they will serve 29 elementary schools in the target areas of North, Platte Valley, Southwest and West. They would stress preventive dental care aimed specifically at first and second graders. Children with ..severe dental problems would be referred to dental services ~at the Health Center.
Some of the problems that must be solved before a decision on mobile dental units can be made are sufficient electrical outlets at schools to carry the heavy load of the dental Units, and a better pay scale for mobile unit personnel.

College Important:
West Side Efforts Should Continue
Metropolitan State College is an urban college to provide education for living and working in' the city. Dr. Kenneth Phillips, President of Metro College, told the February 25 meeting sponsored by the West Side Improvement Association. In order to be useful in its unique college function, the school must be "physically and psychologically accessible."
Dr. Robert O'Dell, Administrative Dean, at Metro, described the process of selecting the place for the College. In terms of central location .foi the Metropolitan- area, the Au-raria site was recommended by the planning group. The Auraria site, north of Colfax Avenue and west of Speer Blvd., now has fewer residential buildings to be removed than other suitable areas, and would be eligible for Urban Benewal assistance in obtaining the land.
Business Help
Central area businesses are working to help finance planning costs for the Auraria site, and West Side businesses may also be asked to help, according to Philip Milstein, Executive Director of the Downtown Denver Improvement As-saeidSbn. Mi'.* Milstein spoke at the meeting, congratulating the West Side Improvement Association for their work in improving the area. Cooperation with housing, inspection and other improvement activities has prevented the West Side from running dawn, but continued community effort is needed. Locating Metro College north of Colfax can be a boost for the businesses and residences south of Colfax, in the West Side.
Fund Requests 1969
State Senator Allegra Saun- j ders, and State Representative i Wayne Knox, were present at tire meeting. Both are members of Education Committees of the Legislature, and reported that they expect requests for funds for beginning construction at Metro to come to the Legislature in 1969. About sixty persons attended the February 25 meeting, which was chaired by Mrs. C. L. Collins, a member of the Board of the Improvement Association.
In March, the Commission n Higher Education approved tile Auraria site for Metropolitan State Collegeif the City f Denver will, provide the land to the State. The Commission indicated ..that future state college locations will depend on contributions of land, rather than objective consideration of appropriate locations. The West Sid.. Improvement Association 'has written to the Commission on Higher Education urging that more attention be given to the State's responsibly in providing education to Denver's low-income communities.

Copy of a Letter from the West Side Improvement Association to the Colorado
Commtssicm on Higher Education
March 21, 1968
Gentlemen:
The West Side Improvement Association has recognized the importance of Metropolitan State College as a real resource for residents of Denver, particularly those living in the Inner City areas and low-income communities. Through the Association newspaper, the West Side Recorder, information about the college has been presented to the West Side. A number of West Side residents are now attending Metro College.
When the site location process was under way, the West Side Improvement Association seriously objected to consideration of the "Civic Center" area as designated in the final recommendations, because of the effect of displacing such a large number of middle* and low-income tenants and property owners. The Improvement Association supported consideration of tRe "Auraria" site, as an area with a much smaller residential population and generally deteriorating neighborhood. The central location of Auraria in the total metropolitan area, and the nearby availability of employment and educational resources, make it accessible to the total community, and especially to those? residents, of deprived areas who do not find it possible to attend the existing colleges. The "urban college" concept is important as a new way of making higher education relevant The recent Riot Commission report suggests' some of the results of continuing to ignore the needs of Inner City residents..
The recent action of the Commission on Higher Education, as reported in the newspapers, seems to jeopardize the objective planning for Metropolitan State College, and other colleges, by insisting that land for colleges must be contributed' to the State of Colorado. Aside from the obiective questions as to possible additional costs for utilities and land development in some locations which might be contributed, the relationship of college location to educational purposes seems to be forgotten. With a large share of the State income coming from Denver, it does not seem unreasonable to expect that the State of Colorado might have a real obligation to provide appropriate higher education in Denver. :1 ;
Therefore, by action of the Board of Directors of the West Side Improvement Association at their regular meeting on March 11, 1968, it is resolved to:
a. Support the recommendation of the Commission on Higher Education that the "Auraria" site be approved for the location of Metropolitan State College, and
b. Urge the'Commission on Higher Education to consider the obligation of the State of Colorado in helping to acquire the site, as well as to continue to develop the physical and educational resources of the College, in order that the'site selection may be based on objective location factors and not primarily on competitive. bidding by provision of free land.
Sincerely,
(Mrs.) Wilma J. Dabrowski President

Editorial
What Happened?
Many Recorder readers read the article last month about censorship of a program on consumer fraud broadcast by Channel 6. It appeared that the school board, which is responsible for the policy at Channel 6, and the director of the station were scared out of reshowing the broadcast by a. group of Colorado's prominent Republican lawmakers. This month we have a sequel.
On Tuesday evening, February 27, a group of mothers from the West Side appeared oh a Channel 6 program^ "The Other Side of ADC," speaking about problems and concerns of living on an ADC budget. Those of you who saw the program may have thought it wasn't as controversial as it could have been, and that there are many more problems that were not mentioned. Previous to the show the same-group had filmed a program that DID present other real problems. The women were told that the filmed program would be shown, but it was not.
Why? The moderator of the show and the women all stood behind' everything that was said. But Channel 6 would notnot even if a disclaimer was run and equal time given to those criticized. Is Channel 6 again being intimidated? Are they being pressured by someone? Or are they afraid of pressure from somewhere? Maybe they are afraid of con-" troversy. Then why do they plan controversial shows at all?
Channel 6 is operated by the Denver Public Schools. The schools are funded through property owners' taxes and federal money, to which we all contribute. Many taxpayers are wondering just what their tax money is going toward. Certainly; not toward informing them about contro-I versial issues in Denver.
. Channel 6, have you done it again?

Mobile Units
Further information was given on the possibility of mobile dental units to serve the area. IF these units are started, they will serve 29 elementary schools in the target areas of North, Platte Valley, Southwest and West. They would stress preventive dental care aimed specifically at first and second graders. Children with ..severe dental problems would be referred to dental services ~at the Health Center.
Some of the problems that must be solved before a decision on mobile dental units can be made are sufficient electrical outlets at schools to carry the heavy load of the dental Units, and a better pay scale for mobile unit personnel. A high rate of turn-over of non-professional staff has Auraria Community Center,been a big problem in other 534-7614. dental care programs.

Volunteers over 18 are. needed in the pre-school program for Emotionally. Disturbed youngsters at Auraria Community. Center, 1212 Mariposa. Volunteers are asked to work ai least one two-hour class sess* ion, either morning or afternoon. Particularly needed are volunteers with skills in art and music.
