Three hundred West Siders signed petitions against a 32 beer license application on which a hearing was held June 20. The decision on the application, for 1132 Speer Blvd., had not been made when. the West Side Recorder went to press.
The signatures were obtained by three members of the West Side Improvement Association, going door to door west of Speer Blvd. within a five-block radius of 1132 Speer.
Persons signing the petitions said they objected to the proposed 32 'business because it would be too close to West and St. Josephs High Schools and Metro State College, and because there are enough beer outlets in the area.

on an overtime basis. They collected 15 loads of old furniture, appliances, water heaters, lumber and other junk on June 8, and 17 loads on June 15.
The junk pick-up was part of the annual spring clean-up campaign sponsored by the West Side Improvement Association. The WSIA praised Mr. Patton for his cooperation and good service, and thanked Mayor Tom Currigan for supporting the clean-up efforts.
The citys service to the West Side shows the good cooperation that exists between the Improvement Association and the ctiy government. The response of West Siders shows how much they appreciate help in making the West Side a better place to live.

A Message
Many of you have helped with the West Side Recorder in the last four years. You have sent news, and letters to the editor, and* helped get facts for the paper. You have carried the paper around to your neighbors. Some of you have tried to help with advertising and other financial support to keep the paper going.
Right now this newspaper is having a hard time financially. Some of the West Side churches are giving $10 a month to help out, but our big need is for advertising and for support gifts like the one in May from Baker Junior High School ($25). The paper costs about $400 a month to publish.
Actually, thats less than 4 cents a person for each West Sider to have the Recorder delivered to his home each month. Do you think its a good bargain?
If you do, please tell your neighbors and your gas station man and your grocery man about it. If you hear of some one who doesnt get a copy of the paper, let us know, and please let him see your paper. We need every bit of interest and support from West Side residents we can get.
Write to us. Call us. Send in pictures. And be sure to do business with the persons who advertise in the Recorder. Tell them you saw their ad in your West Side newspaper.
Thanks for your support so far. Well all do all we can to help you, and we hope you will do all you can to keep us in business for you.
The Staff of the Recorder
P.S. Please get your news in by Wednesday, July 17, for the July 26 issue. Send or deliver to 465 Gala-pago St.not anywhere else, please* If you have any questions, please telephone 534-4408.

The project, which receives financial support from the Public Health Service, Department of Health, Education and Welfare, will move to 1949 Ogden St. The new quarters are provided by Spalding Rehabilitation Center. Previously, the office was at 1620 Meade St.
The new sponsor will be Family Care, Social and Health Services for the Aging, Inc. Former sponsor was Beth Israel Hospital and Home Society.
The project is a five-year demonstration program to find ways to provide comfortable housing and satisfying activities for older persons in the Denver metropolitan area. Its services are open to persons of every creed and culture.
The main service of the project is the family care program, which finds warm, comfortable family homes for older persons who might otherwise have to resort to institutional care. This service currently is the only one of its kind serving all older persons in the metropolitan area.

The corps membership includes men and women ranging in age from college to retirement years.
Letters From West Siders
To the Editor:
We should have more peace because there is too much of shooting and killing. We should have more police because they dont come in time when you call them. And children should be obedient to other people and their parents.
Dwayne C.
(Age 11)
To the Editor:
Policemen stop wrecks but kids are scared of them. I dont like to see fightsno one should shoot and kill, white people or Negro people. Thank you for printing my letter.
Mike W.
(Age 9)
To the Editor:
Policemen should be good but they are shooting people some places. I know a policeman and I like him.
Anthony K.
(Age 9)
To the Editor:
One hundred and ninety-two years ago, on July 4, 1776, a document was adopted by the colonies. Thomas Jefferson toiled in the heat of June in that little rented room in Philadelphia. There he produced this heritage we call the United States of America.
Many of our brave sons have died to bring to the world this country of ours, this country where all races, all creeds have mingled their blood on the battle field. From Valley Forge to the mud of Viet Nam our young men have freely given their aU|~r for you and me.
This is indeed a fortunate country. No nation has ever offered so much to so many. No matter what his race or belief, everyone owes these men our grateful thanksgiving.
Many wish to destroy us because we stand for Freedom. There are many misguided folks that have been taken in with the smooth propaganda of our enemies who, if not checked, would in fact bring to an end this country of ours. They scoff at patriotism, they belittle love of country, they heap discredit on our soldiers fighting for their country.
However, they will not succeed in their evil ways, and as always the United States will stand free and proud before all her detractors. Then let us this July Fourth, renew our pledge and revalue our thoughts, singing that last verse of Frances Scott Keys The Star-Spangled Banner.
Oh, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand Between their loved homes and wars desolation;
Blest with victory and peace, may the heaven-rescued land Praise the power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: In God is our trust!
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave,
Oer the land of the free, and the home of the brave!
Arthur K. Serumgard 1247 Lipan St.
Vance Nunez Named Summer Youth Director
Vance Nunez, a West Denver resident for more than 20 years* is the summer youth director for the Robert F. Kennedy Recreation Center at 500 Kalamath St. He also is manager of the West Side Action Center softball team.
Mrs. Mary Benavidez is assistant director.
They will help West Side youths in summer program planning and will supervise and direct the youth staff members at the Center.
One of the coolest activities on a hot summer day is to simply sit and read! This month, well try to help you decide what to read by listing a variety of new books.
A companion piece to Hotel is Arthur Hailey's new book, Airport. The airport manager of a modem midwestem airport beset by a blizzard struggles with a dozen crises, ranging from a bomb smuggled aboard a transatlantic flight to a Boeing 707 stuck in a runway. Suspense, an unusual twist to the plot, and a different view of an airport make this enjoyable reading.
The Last Unicom by Peter S. Beagle is an odd, enchanting story about a lovely unicorn who sets out to prove that she is not the last unicorn in existence. The book contains all the ingredients of an adult fairy tale.
In his first novel, The Three Suitors, Richard Jones presents a very irresistible heroine. Lady Mignon Benson-Williams, an elderly Welsh woman who is desperate for ready cash with which to repair her decaying Welsh farmhouse, is too proud to accept help. When a nephew gives her the idea for exploiting the papers and diaries of her late husband, a distinguished public figure, Mignon takes up the challenge. There is a surprising ending!
Red Is The Valley, by Joseph Wayne.
The farmers and ranchers battle again in this fast-paced Western novel, with an inusual twist. The hero is a man who tries to stay above the warring camps and make a neutral future for himself in his valley.
While Casey isn't a western tale, it has the same rough and violent theme as many good westerns do. Ramona Stewart, who wrote Kit Larkin, now tells a tale of the exciting world of the Irish, as they climbed to power in New York City during the 1800s.
In The Collected Stories of Jack Schaefer, the author of Shane presents 32 tales that trace the story of the frontier from its lawless beginnings to the present day, and gives us a living gallery of some of the men and women whose lives shaped the Old West.
This Stranger My Son and The Youngest share a common theme: problem children. Louise Wilsons This Stranger My
Son is a mothers true story of her lost child, a victim of paranoid schizophrenia. In The Youngest, Gillian Tindall writes about a young wife and mother, Elizabeth, whose fourth child is hopelessly malformed. The inevitable tragic results of her smothering love for the child make a moving, probing, and sensitive story.
For some fresh new non-fiction reading, there is the Readers Digest 1968 Almanac and Yearbook. Some of the topics covered are the students 1968 college guide, great events of 1967, preview of 1968 Olympic games, and fashion, beauty, and recipes for women. This is fascinating browsing to read at leisure.
Both adults and children will be interested in Mickey McConnells official Little League book of instruction on How to Play Little League Baseball. However it is particularly for adults who supervise and coach the boys. Throughout the book the values of baseball in developing healthy attitudes of sportsmanship, citizenship, teamwork, and fitness are emphasized.
Another book to catch the eye of all readers is Ventriloquism for Beginners. Douglas Houlden teaches you, in this book, how to train your voice and how to manipulate a figure. Sample dialogues and easy to follow directions are given in voice magic.
For fun, try the songs in the Bob Dylan Song Book. There are personal notes and an introduction to Bob and his work by Robert Shelton. Bob Dylan is a writer of folk music and folk poetry that seem to have appeal for almost everyone.
Richard Samson, the author of The Mind Builder, has a new challenge for us in the pages of The Language Ladder. There are 75 mind-stretching word puzzles, which show how the study of the many senses of ordinary words can improve your ability to solve problems, create, and analyze.
The Joan Baez Songbook, edited by Maynard Solomon.
This is a book of the songs Joan Baez sings on her recordings and at her concerts. There are sixty-six haunting and beautiful folk songs in the folk vein, each with a capsule history. Youll recognize many of them!
WSIA Signs Up As Early Member Of PRIDE, Inc.
The West Side Improvement Association is one of the first members of a new city-wide organization called PRIDE, Inc.
PRIDE stands for Program to Renew and Inspire Denver Excellence."
PRIDE is being set up to give all organizations in the city, especially those involved in community services and improvement, a way to keep each other informed of plans and projects and a way to pull together to accomplish large goals.
It is hoped that PRIDE will be able to inform the mayor, the city council, the state and federal governments, and all others interested as to what Denver residents need and what they are trying to do to solve their problems.
Each member organization, including the West Side Improvement Association, will be asked to tell what it is working on and what other groups can do to help. In this way, PRIDE can give a good over-all report of residents ideas and activities so there will be less confusion and more working together.
Special PRIDE committees will be formed to work on housing problems, better transportation, poverty problems, health servivces, urban renewal and other subjects needing cooperative discussion and action.
The West Side Association, through its former president, Julian Kreoger, joined PRIDE in June. There are 6,000 eligible organizations in the city, but Mr. Kreoger of 535 Galapago St. was one of only about 20 persons who attended the May meeting.
Growth Revealed By Welfare Rights
The Denver Chapter of the Welfare Rights Organization announces a steady growth in membership throughout the city. WRO supports justice, dignity, more income, and a better voice for persons receiving welfare.
Mrs. Kathamay Hart of 1236 West 11th Ave., president, said all interested persons should plan to attend the July meeting. Flyers will be given out telling the time and place of the meeting.
Members of WRO say:
If you dont know where its atif you dont know whats happening about welfare rights then come join. You have a right to know about the laws that you live by. The Welfare Department will NOT cut your check because you join us.
Members from the West Side group and the Curtis Park Community Center joined together in May to form an East-West steering committee.

A Message
Many of you have helped with the West Side Recorder in the last four years. You have sent news, and letters to the editor, and* helped get facts for the paper. You have carried the paper around to your neighbors. Some of you have tried to help with advertising and other financial support to keep the paper going.
Right now this newspaper is having a hard time financially. Some of the West Side churches are giving $10 a month to help out, but our big need is for advertising and for support gifts like the one in May from Baker Junior High School ($25). The paper costs about $400 a month to publish.
Actually, thats less than 4 cents a person for each West Sider to have the Recorder delivered to his home each month. Do you think its a good bargain?
If you do, please tell your neighbors and your gas station man and your grocery man about it. If you hear of some one who doesnt get a copy of the paper, let us know, and please let him see your paper. We need every bit of interest and support from West Side residents we can get.
Write to us. Call us. Send in pictures. And be sure to do business with the persons who advertise in the Recorder. Tell them you saw their ad in your West Side newspaper.
Thanks for your support so far. Well all do all we can to help you, and we hope you will do all you can to keep us in business for you.
The Staff of the Recorder
P.S. Please get your news in by Wednesday, July 17, for the July 26 issue. Send or deliver to 465 Gala-pago St.not anywhere else, please* If you have any questions, please telephone 534-4408.

Letters From West Siders
To the Editor:
We should have more peace because there is too much of shooting and killing. We should have more police because they dont come in time when you call them. And children should be obedient to other people and their parents.
Dwayne C.
(Age 11)
To the Editor:
Policemen stop wrecks but kids are scared of them. I dont like to see fightsno one should shoot and kill, white people or Negro people. Thank you for printing my letter.
Mike W.

Policemen should be good but they are shooting people some places. I know a policeman and I like him.
Anthony K.
(Age 9)
To the Editor:
One hundred and ninety-two years ago, on July 4, 1776, a document was adopted by the colonies. Thomas Jefferson toiled in the heat of June in that little rented room in Philadelphia. There he produced this heritage we call the United States of America.
Many of our brave sons have died to bring to the world this country of ours, this country where all races, all creeds have mingled their blood on the battle field. From Valley Forge to the mud of Viet Nam our young men have freely given their aU|~r for you and me.
This is indeed a fortunate country. No nation has ever offered so much to so many. No matter what his race or belief, everyone owes these men our grateful thanksgiving.
Many wish to destroy us because we stand for Freedom. There are many misguided folks that have been taken in with the smooth propaganda of our enemies who, if not checked, would in fact bring to an end this country of ours. They scoff at patriotism, they belittle love of country, they heap discredit on our soldiers fighting for their country.
However, they will not succeed in their evil ways, and as always the United States will stand free and proud before all her detractors. Then let us this July Fourth, renew our pledge and revalue our thoughts, singing that last verse of Frances Scott Keys The Star-Spangled Banner.
Oh, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand Between their loved homes and wars desolation;
Blest with victory and peace, may the heaven-rescued land Praise the power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: In God is our trust!
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave,
Oer the land of the free, and the home of the brave!
