City Promises To Improve Pool In Lincoln Park
The City Parks and Recreation Department has promised to fix up Lincoln Park Pool for the 1969 swimming season by repairing leaks using special sealer on the bottom, and installing a water heater and filter.
The promises were made at a public meeting Aug. 8 at Auraria Community Center, with about 40 persons present. James Adams, a recreation supervisor for the Parks and Recreation Department, appeared on behalf of Joe Ciancio, Department director, to discuss the condition of the pool with West Siders.
Lincoln Park Pool was built more than 30 years ago and is one of the oldest in the city. There have been many complaints this year and in the past about broken glass in the pool, dirty water, and poor supervision of the pool and shower rooms.
City officials said there is no way to put a cover over the pool to keep bottles from being thrown in and broken. However, they said the Department would try to get another vacuum cleaner next year so that instead of being cleaned once a week Lincoln Park Pool could be cleaned once a day. The water heater and filter also will improve the situation.
Three high school pupils, to be selected from West High School this winter, will be given Red Cross training in water safety in preparation for their employment at Lincoln Park Pool next summer.
The tennis courts in the park are to be renovated next year, with new nets and lights, and there will be arrangements for night baseball.
Lincoln Park Pool will remain open through Sunday, Sept. 8, if the weather stays warm.
Enrollment Totals Greatly Increased At St. Joseph's
Both the high school and grade school at St. Josephs are being expanded this year because of the addition of pupils from other schools.
The enrollment of St. Josephs High School will be increased to 425 from about 285 last year because Annunciation High School has been closed.
Two mobile units have been obtained to provide four additional classrooms for the high school. They are beside the gymnasium.
The high school faculty is made up of 16 Sisters of Mercy, cwo Sisters of Charity who came from Annunciation, five priests and six lay teachers. Sister Mary Stanislaus, R.S.M., is principal.
The increased enrollment in St. Josephs Grade School is the result of the closing of the seventh and eighth grades at St. Elizabeths and the seventh grade at St. Anthonys.
A mobile classroom has been added for a reading program made possible by federal funds, releasing a classroom within the building for the combined seventh and eighth grades.
Sister Mary Canisius, R.S.M., is principal. The facility consists of three other Sisters of Mercy and five lay teachers.
Many varied activities are planned for both schools. St. Josephs urges the cooperation of parents and pupils to make the large expansion successful.

Improvement Assn. Continues Campaign
The 1968-69 membership campaign of the West Side Improvement Association is continuing on a person-to-person basis, through the district directors.
District elections will be held sometime soon and officers for the coming year will be elected.
Persons who live or work on the West Side are eligible to be members of the Association. The one-dollar membership fee may be sent to Mrs. Wilma Da-browski, Association president, at 1115 Inca St., Denver 80204. It covers all members of the family.
Scholarship Aid To 1968 Grads
Six students from the West Side will receive college aid this fall because the Citizens Scholarship Foundation felt they showed promise academically.
The Denver chapter of the Foundation has contributed from $100 to $300 to each of the students for further education.
Those who will attend Metropolitan State College are Anthony Lucero, son of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel F. Lucero of 1383 King St.; Carlos Padilla, son of Mr. and Mrs. Carlos Padilla of 1312 Mariposa St., and James Val-esquez, son of Mr. and Mrs. Meliton Valesquez of 805 Perry St. All are 1968 graduates of St. Joseph High School.
Other St. Joseph High School graduates receiving scholarships are Patrick Roybal, son of Augustine Roybal and Mrs. Mary Constance Trujillo, 4670 West Gill PI., and Richard Welte, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph F. Welte of 448 Bannock St., who will attend Colorado State College at Greeley.
Linda Gillmore, a West High School graduate, will attend Trinidad State Junior College, Trinidad. She is the daughter of Mrs. Georgia Cowling of 326 West 12th Ave.
The foundation chose to assist these students because they might not otherwise have been able to attend college, according to Dean Lillie, dean of students at Metropolitan State College and vice president of the scholarship foundation.
West Siders will be involved in a public hearing at the Denver City Council meeting Tuesday evening, Sept. 3, as to whether pawn shops can be moved into areas like the business districts on Santa Fe Drive and at Broadway and First Avenue.
The legal basis of the hearing will be a proposal to add B-4 retail areas, such as Santa Fe and Broadway, to the B-5 business zone now open to pawn shops.
The pawn shops on Larimer and Lawrence Streets are being forced to move because of the Skyline Urban Renewal which will completely renovate much of old downtown Denver.
Many West Siders are opposed to the proposal. Petitions against it are being circulated by the West Side Improvement Association and by other organizations in other parts of Denver.
Anyone interested may attend the City Council meeting at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday (Sept. 3) in Room 451 of the City-County Building.
Jobs for Progress Training Program Has 100 Enrolled
Remodeling of the new quarters of Jobs for Progress, Inc. (Operation S.E.R.) at 1039 Inca St. is underway and 100 students are enrolled in training.
The building will have seven classrooms, a large conference room, a lunch room, and several offices. For the time being, facilities at the Mennonite Youth Center at 430t West Ninth Ave. are being used by S.E.R
Three Neighborhood "Reps" Hired for Action Center
Three new neighborhood representatives have been hired by the West Side Action Council to work in the West Side Action Center.
They are Perfecto Martinez of 1119 West 12th Ave., Mrs. Carmen Lucero of 1022 West Ninth Ave., and Steve Archuletta. They join Albert Cordero in filling all the neighborhood representative positions.
The four will set up block meetings in the homes of West Siders, to inform the community of the services available at the Action Center.
These meetings also will give West Siders an opportunity to express their feelings and ideas about the needs on the West Side, such as improved housing, better employment, more educational opportunities, etc.
The neighborhood representatives may be contacted at 1042 Santa Fe Dr., telephone 534-5141.
The West Side Action Council has a special thank-you for Kaye Dean, who has been

West Side Aides Move to New Jobs
Names and faces changed this week for school-community aides in West Side schools.
New aides working out of the school-community office at Baker Junior High School are Mrs. Christine DeLeon of 1129 West 13th Ave. and Joe Salazar of 1030 West 10th Ave.
Mrs. DeLeon succeeds Mrs. Tomasita Garcia of 437 Sante Fe Dr. as school-community aide for Elmwood and Fairmont Grade Schools and for Baker. Mrs. DeLeon has been a neighborhood aide with the Neighborhood Health Program since March, 1966, working mainly in the Mariposa area.
Mr. Salazar succeeds Jerry Soliz in aide work at Baker, Greenlee Grade School, and West High School. Mr. Salazar has had much experience as a volunteer court counselor with young people and in other youth work in New Mexico and Colorado.
The school-community aides on the West Side help families and children on problems connected with school, and in any other way posible. Mrs. DeLeon and Mr. Salazar may be reached at the school-community office, telephone 825-0945.
Total enrollment in the Jobs for Progress program is expected to be 300, of which 75 will be in vocational training in Community College. At least 20 of the first 100, who enrolled during the first three weeks of the training program, will be in Community College within the next month.
The other 225 students will be placed directly on jobs or in on-the-job-training ( O J T) programs. Trainees receive financial help while they are in training, and may enter the program from any level of schooling, training and experience.
Joe Roybal is in charge of the teaching staff for the training program.
Health Station Opening on Inca
A new Neighborhood Health Station will open soon at West Fifth Ave. and Inca St. It will provide much the same services as the Mariposa Health Station, and will be a satellite station of the West Side Health Center.
The planning committee of the West Side Health Board has submitted nine names in Spanish for the new station. These names will be considered by the Denver Department of Health and Hospitals, which operates the Neighborhood Health Stations and Centers.
The Department has received a grant of $688,000 from the U. S. Public Health Service to establish five new health stations, of which this is one. The grant covers both adult and child services at the stations for a one-year period.

Friends of the West Side and its newspaper have been hard at work the last month, trying to line up long-range, steady financial support for the paper.
The situation has improved enough for us to begin our monthly publication schedule again after missing only one issue.
As yet, however, there is no guarantee that we can keep on publishing regularly. We still need several long-term pledges from interested organizations or individuals.
Letters were mailed two weeks ago to the 250 persons who receive the paper by mail. Many of you in this group might consider sending in two or three dollars apiece as sort of a subscription to cover the cost of mailing and to help in the personal way we believe is
so important for both the com* munity and the paper.
As we continue our efforts to keep the paper going, we thank everyone who's given encouragement as well as cash. We need both.
About Our Deadline
We intend to publish again the last week-end in September. This means all news items, pictures, and ads should be sent to us at 465 Galapago St. by Wednesday, Sept. 18. If you have questions, please call 534 4408 and leave a message for the writing staff or the ad man.
By the way, we missed having letters to the editor for this issue. Do you have something you'd like to send in??
Sex Films Blocked At Santa Fe Theater
A one-woman effort stopped a plan for regular showing of sex movies each week-end at the Santa Fe theater.
Thanks to Mrs. Wilma Dab-rowski, president of the West Side Improvement Association, the Spanish films will be continued on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings, and no nude or sex films will be shown.
The owner of the building had notified the leasor that he intended to change the Spanish-film schedule and show sex movies on Fridays and Saturdays.
Mrs. Dabrowski made many telephone calls, including contacts with city officials, and was successful in convincing the theater owner that West Siders do not want such films brought into the community.
New Pastor Coming To Mennonite Church
The Rev. Kermit Derstine will be the new pastor of First Mennonite Church at 430 West Ninth Ave., succeeding the Rev. Marcus Bishop.
The Rev. Mr. and Mrs. Derstine will arrive in Denver Sept. 2 from Akron, Pa., where he has been pastor for seven years. He is a graduate of Goshen College and Seminary in Goshen, Ind.
Installation services for the new pastor will be held during the 9 a.m. worship service at First Mennonite Church on Sunday, Sept. 8. Bishop E. M. Yost, district overseer of the Menon-ite Church, will conduct the service. The public is invited.
Needed: More regular delivery people for THE RECORDER. Call your name and address to 534-4408.

The More We Get Together"
This is a good time in the life of West Siders and their community to talk about how people work with each other toward some goal important to all of them.
Many West Siders want the area to be better. This means more jobs, good places for recreation, better health care and schools. It means fixing up property so it looks better and is better to live in or work in. It means safety from accidents or attack in the parks and other public areas. It means good streets, lights, and traffic safety.
It means supporting a library and a newspaper, and community organizations that know how to do their jobs well and how to cooperate with each other. It means having active churches and social groups and other associations that serve needs and make life better and happier.
It means many people thinking about the needs, and helping on the plans and the work. It means having and showing respect for each others rights and ideas. It means being proud of the community.
In recent weeks there has been a special flurry of community activity on the West Side. Ideas have been brought up and plans have been made. The fiesta and the community development month with its special weekshealth, Hispano culture, property improvement, and educationhave involved many, many persons in hard work and accomplishment.
There needs to be a big do every once in a whilethe fiesta and the other activities made life on the West Side more interesting. A lot of money was raised which will be used for the benefit of many residents. The kids in particular had a wonderful time.
But two points that seem to have been overlooked in all this hard work are important, and we as West Sidersand all others involvedneed to have them in mind in the fu-

ture.
One is that community development does not happen in a monththat people learn more and get more done if they work on needs together month-in and month-out over several years, than they do in paying attention for a week and thats all until the next week comes along.
In other words, events such as those of last month would have been even better if everyone had understood and remembered that a lot of work already has been done on the West Side in recent years by different groups who, separately or together, have supported improvements of schools, health care, recreation, houses, business places, streets, traffic lights, etc. Some of these dedicated workers were left out of the planning for recent events, and at times things were said that made some of them feel as though they were not appreciated at all for their services on behalf of the community.
It's true that there's still an awfully lot to be done, and many times things have moved slowly. But there are so many people on the West Side who have done a lot of work and are willing to keep on helping. In fact, those very people did keep right on working and helped put over the fiesta and the months programs, even though they were not given an opportunity to help make the plans in the first place.
This brings up the other point that we believe was overlooked in recent events. Any program, any undertaking, any effort is really better if it comes out of the grass roots the people themselves. And any big thing is better if the people have time to do it well. (Most people never heard of the big August plans until July 10!)
Its easy enough for somebody above you to say, Lets have a party, and tell you what to do so youll get to have the party. But if you decide on your own you want to have a partyor an educational programor a community cleanupor anything else for the groupand if you go to work on it and work it out for yourself over the time necessary to do a good job (and enjoy it while while youre working on it), then youve really got something in the life of the community.
You may ask some professionals or agencies or people with money to help you, but the best thing that happens is something you think of and carry out yourself without somebody bossing you, or telling you the plans are all made for you, or not giving you time enough to do what needs to be donedone well.
Congratulations are in order to all West Siders who worked on the fiesta and the programs this month. We should keep right on trying to make life better for ourselves and our children. We should keep on trying to work together, with everyone interested getting in on the planning. And all the organizations on the West Side should develop greater cooperation among themselves for what we all agree we wanta better West Side!

City Promises To Improve Pool In Lincoln Park
The City Parks and Recreation Department has promised to fix up Lincoln Park Pool for the 1969 swimming season by repairing leaks using special sealer on the bottom, and installing a water heater and filter.
The promises were made at a public meeting Aug. 8 at Auraria Community Center, with about 40 persons present. James Adams, a recreation supervisor for the Parks and Recreation Department, appeared on behalf of Joe Ciancio, Department director, to discuss the condition of the pool with West Siders.
Lincoln Park Pool was built more than 30 years ago and is one of the oldest in the city. There have been many complaints this year and in the past about broken glass in the pool, dirty water, and poor supervision of the pool and shower rooms.
City officials said there is no way to put a cover over the pool to keep bottles from being thrown in and broken. However, they said the Department would try to get another vacuum cleaner next year so that instead of being cleaned once a week Lincoln Park Pool could be cleaned once a day. The water heater and filter also will improve the situation.
Three high school pupils, to be selected from West High School this winter, will be given Red Cross training in water safety in preparation for their employment at Lincoln Park Pool next summer.
The tennis courts in the park are to be renovated next year, with new nets and lights, and there will be arrangements for night baseball.
Lincoln Park Pool will remain open through Sunday, Sept. 8, if the weather stays warm.
Enrollment Totals Greatly Increased At St. Joseph's
Both the high school and grade school at St. Josephs are being expanded this year because of the addition of pupils from other schools.
The enrollment of St. Josephs High School will be increased to 425 from about 285 last year because Annunciation High School has been closed.
Two mobile units have been obtained to provide four additional classrooms for the high school. They are beside the gymnasium.
The high school faculty is made up of 16 Sisters of Mercy, cwo Sisters of Charity who came from Annunciation, five priests and six lay teachers. Sister Mary Stanislaus, R.S.M., is principal.
The increased enrollment in St. Josephs Grade School is the result of the closing of the seventh and eighth grades at St. Elizabeths and the seventh grade at St. Anthonys.
A mobile classroom has been added for a reading program made possible by federal funds, releasing a classroom within the building for the combined seventh and eighth grades.
Sister Mary Canisius, R.S.M., is principal. The facility consists of three other Sisters of Mercy and five lay teachers.
Many varied activities are planned for both schools. St. Josephs urges the cooperation of parents and pupils to make the large expansion successful.

Improvement Assn. Continues Campaign
The 1968-69 membership campaign of the West Side Improvement Association is continuing on a person-to-person basis, through the district directors.
District elections will be held sometime soon and officers for the coming year will be elected.
Persons who live or work on the West Side are eligible to be members of the Association. The one-dollar membership fee may be sent to Mrs. Wilma Da-browski, Association president, at 1115 Inca St., Denver 80204. It covers all members of the family.
Scholarship Aid To 1968 Grads
Six students from the West Side will receive college aid this fall because the Citizens Scholarship Foundation felt they showed promise academically.
The Denver chapter of the Foundation has contributed from $100 to $300 to each of the students for further education.
Those who will attend Metropolitan State College are Anthony Lucero, son of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel F. Lucero of 1383 King St.; Carlos Padilla, son of Mr. and Mrs. Carlos Padilla of 1312 Mariposa St., and James Val-esquez, son of Mr. and Mrs. Meliton Valesquez of 805 Perry St. All are 1968 graduates of St. Joseph High School.
Other St. Joseph High School graduates receiving scholarships are Patrick Roybal, son of Augustine Roybal and Mrs. Mary Constance Trujillo, 4670 West Gill PI., and Richard Welte, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph F. Welte of 448 Bannock St., who will attend Colorado State College at Greeley.
Linda Gillmore, a West High School graduate, will attend Trinidad State Junior College, Trinidad. She is the daughter of Mrs. Georgia Cowling of 326 West 12th Ave.
The foundation chose to assist these students because they might not otherwise have been able to attend college, according to Dean Lillie, dean of students at Metropolitan State College and vice president of the scholarship foundation.
West Siders will be involved in a public hearing at the Denver City Council meeting Tuesday evening, Sept. 3, as to whether pawn shops can be moved into areas like the business districts on Santa Fe Drive and at Broadway and First Avenue.
The legal basis of the hearing will be a proposal to add B-4 retail areas, such as Santa Fe and Broadway, to the B-5 business zone now open to pawn shops.
The pawn shops on Larimer and Lawrence Streets are being forced to move because of the Skyline Urban Renewal which will completely renovate much of old downtown Denver.
Many West Siders are opposed to the proposal. Petitions against it are being circulated by the West Side Improvement Association and by other organizations in other parts of Denver.
Anyone interested may attend the City Council meeting at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday (Sept. 3) in Room 451 of the City-County Building.
Jobs for Progress Training Program Has 100 Enrolled

The four will set up block meetings in the homes of West Siders, to inform the community of the services available at the Action Center.

New aides working out of the school-community office at Baker Junior High School are Mrs. Christine DeLeon of 1129 West 13th Ave. and Joe Salazar of 1030 West 10th Ave.
Mrs. DeLeon succeeds Mrs. Tomasita Garcia of 437 Sante Fe Dr. as school-community aide for Elmwood and Fairmont Grade Schools and for Baker. Mrs. DeLeon has been a neighborhood aide with the Neighborhood Health Program since March, 1966, working mainly in the Mariposa area.
Mr. Salazar succeeds Jerry Soliz in aide work at Baker, Greenlee Grade School, and West High School. Mr. Salazar has had much experience as a volunteer court counselor with young people and in other youth work in New Mexico and Colorado.

The other 225 students will be placed directly on jobs or in on-the-job-training ( O J T) programs. Trainees receive financial help while they are in training, and may enter the program from any level of schooling, training and experience.
Joe Roybal is in charge of the teaching staff for the training program.
Health Station Opening on Inca
A new Neighborhood Health Station will open soon at West Fifth Ave. and Inca St. It will provide much the same services as the Mariposa Health Station, and will be a satellite station of the West Side Health Center.
The planning committee of the West Side Health Board has submitted nine names in Spanish for the new station. These names will be considered by the Denver Department of Health and Hospitals, which operates the Neighborhood Health Stations and Centers.
The Department has received a grant of $688,000 from the U. S. Public Health Service to establish five new health stations, of which this is one. The grant covers both adult and child services at the stations for a one-year period.

Friends of the West Side and its newspaper have been hard at work the last month, trying to line up long-range, steady financial support for the paper.
The situation has improved enough for us to begin our monthly publication schedule again after missing only one issue.
As yet, however, there is no guarantee that we can keep on publishing regularly. We still need several long-term pledges from interested organizations or individuals.
Letters were mailed two weeks ago to the 250 persons who receive the paper by mail. Many of you in this group might consider sending in two or three dollars apiece as sort of a subscription to cover the cost of mailing and to help in the personal way we believe is
so important for both the com* munity and the paper.
As we continue our efforts to keep the paper going, we thank everyone who's given encouragement as well as cash. We need both.
About Our Deadline
We intend to publish again the last week-end in September. This means all news items, pictures, and ads should be sent to us at 465 Galapago St. by Wednesday, Sept. 18. If you have questions, please call 534 4408 and leave a message for the writing staff or the ad man.
By the way, we missed having letters to the editor for this issue. Do you have something you'd like to send in??
Sex Films Blocked At Santa Fe Theater
A one-woman effort stopped a plan for regular showing of sex movies each week-end at the Santa Fe theater.
Thanks to Mrs. Wilma Dab-rowski, president of the West Side Improvement Association, the Spanish films will be continued on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings, and no nude or sex films will be shown.
The owner of the building had notified the leasor that he intended to change the Spanish-film schedule and show sex movies on Fridays and Saturdays.
Mrs. Dabrowski made many telephone calls, including contacts with city officials, and was successful in convincing the theater owner that West Siders do not want such films brought into the community.
New Pastor Coming To Mennonite Church
The Rev. Kermit Derstine will be the new pastor of First Mennonite Church at 430 West Ninth Ave., succeeding the Rev. Marcus Bishop.
The Rev. Mr. and Mrs. Derstine will arrive in Denver Sept. 2 from Akron, Pa., where he has been pastor for seven years. He is a graduate of Goshen College and Seminary in Goshen, Ind.
Installation services for the new pastor will be held during the 9 a.m. worship service at First Mennonite Church on Sunday, Sept. 8. Bishop E. M. Yost, district overseer of the Menon-ite Church, will conduct the service. The public is invited.

The More We Get Together"
This is a good time in the life of West Siders and their community to talk about how people work with each other toward some goal important to all of them.
Many West Siders want the area to be better. This means more jobs, good places for recreation, better health care and schools. It means fixing up property so it looks better and is better to live in or work in. It means safety from accidents or attack in the parks and other public areas. It means good streets, lights, and traffic safety.
It means supporting a library and a newspaper, and community organizations that know how to do their jobs well and how to cooperate with each other. It means having active churches and social groups and other associations that serve needs and make life better and happier.
It means many people thinking about the needs, and helping on the plans and the work. It means having and showing respect for each others rights and ideas. It means being proud of the community.
In recent weeks there has been a special flurry of community activity on the West Side. Ideas have been brought up and plans have been made. The fiesta and the community development month with its special weekshealth, Hispano culture, property improvement, and educationhave involved many, many persons in hard work and accomplishment.
There needs to be a big do every once in a whilethe fiesta and the other activities made life on the West Side more interesting. A lot of money was raised which will be used for the benefit of many residents. The kids in particular had a wonderful time.
But two points that seem to have been overlooked in all this hard work are important, and we as West Sidersand all others involvedneed to have them in mind in the fu-

ture.
One is that community development does not happen in a monththat people learn more and get more done if they work on needs together month-in and month-out over several years, than they do in paying attention for a week and thats all until the next week comes along.
In other words, events such as those of last month would have been even better if everyone had understood and remembered that a lot of work already has been done on the West Side in recent years by different groups who, separately or together, have supported improvements of schools, health care, recreation, houses, business places, streets, traffic lights, etc. Some of these dedicated workers were left out of the planning for recent events, and at times things were said that made some of them feel as though they were not appreciated at all for their services on behalf of the community.
It's true that there's still an awfully lot to be done, and many times things have moved slowly. But there are so many people on the West Side who have done a lot of work and are willing to keep on helping. In fact, those very people did keep right on working and helped put over the fiesta and the months programs, even though they were not given an opportunity to help make the plans in the first place.
This brings up the other point that we believe was overlooked in recent events. Any program, any undertaking, any effort is really better if it comes out of the grass roots the people themselves. And any big thing is better if the people have time to do it well. (Most people never heard of the big August plans until July 10!)
Its easy enough for somebody above you to say, Lets have a party, and tell you what to do so youll get to have the party. But if you decide on your own you want to have a partyor an educational programor a community cleanupor anything else for the groupand if you go to work on it and work it out for yourself over the time necessary to do a good job (and enjoy it while while youre working on it), then youve really got something in the life of the community.
You may ask some professionals or agencies or people with money to help you, but the best thing that happens is something you think of and carry out yourself without somebody bossing you, or telling you the plans are all made for you, or not giving you time enough to do what needs to be donedone well.
Congratulations are in order to all West Siders who worked on the fiesta and the programs this month. We should keep right on trying to make life better for ourselves and our children. We should keep on trying to work together, with everyone interested getting in on the planning. And all the organizations on the West Side should develop greater cooperation among themselves for what we all agree we wanta better West Side!

The Lincoln Park Homes Fiesta Aug. 2 resulted in lots of enjoyment for many people and the success of raising more than $2,000 clear for the recreation program.
In addition, Denver businessmen contributed nearly $1,-800 toward the goal of purchase of a used, 54-passenger bus for community recreation activities. Lt. Byron J. Haze of the Police Departments Community Relations Division did much of the work of getting the funds from the business community.
Twenty-one queen candiates from the West Side sold 18,247 ten-cent tickets for chances on a car, washing machine, bicycles and a doll. Joe Gregory of 1328 West Colfax won the large bike and donated it to Wheatridge State Home and Training School.
Miss Bonnie Acosta, daughter of Mrs. Cleo Acosta of 1448 Osage St., and Miss Beverly Conict, daughter of Mrs. Minnie Conict of 1361 r About 25 organizations, political candidates and agencies took part in the Fiesta Parade. Many hours of hard work went into making the floats.
