A gift of $2,400 to help pay publication costs of the West Side Recorder during the coming year has been made to the papers sponsor, the Westside Action Ministry, by the Denver Archdiocese of the Roman Catholic Church.
The gift was made upon recommendation of the Achdiocese Evaluating Committe for the Disadvantaged. The Rt. Rev. Msgr. George R. Evans is the advisor for the committee.
The $200 a month from the Archdiocese will pay more than one-half the cost of publication of a four-page paper, and a little less than one-half the cost of a six-page paper. The balance will depend upon advertising receipts, the monthly gifts of churches belonging to the Westside Action Ministry, and other donations from West Siders and their friends.

Why South Lincoln Did Not Get RECORDERS
Most residents of South Lincoln Park did not get their copies of the West Side/Recorder on time last month because the papers were picked up by maintenance men as fast as the boys delivered the papers to the units.
The boys protested to the men taking the papers out of the doorways, but were told there was a clean-up policy by which all give-away material is supposed to be picked up by maintenance men as soon as possible.
The boys then called their supervisor and told him the Recorders were being removed before residents could get them. He protested immediately to William Ratzlaff, manager of Lincoln Park Homes, who told the maintenance men they were not to remove the newspapers.
It was necessary to have more papers printed before the distribution could be made again in South Lincoln Park, thus delay-

Sgt. and Mrs. Manuel Martinez
Bronze Star Medal To West Side Man
A West Side man who lost his life in Viet Nam and later was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for heroism was Manuel F. Martinez, whose widow, Rose Marie Martinez, is the daughter of Mr.' and Mrs. Manuel J. Lara of 1256 Delaware St.
Martinez was born December 12, 1945, in Grand Junction, Colorado. He attended Baker Junior High School and West High School. He and Rose Marie Lara were married in 1964 and in 1966 moved to California where he was drafted. He was a truck driver at Fort Bliss, Texas, after his basic training there.
In October, 1967, Martinez left for Viet Nam. Last May Mrs. Martinez joined him in Hawaii for a week. June 9, she received notice that he had been killed in action in Viet Nam. Later the award was announced for Sgt./E5 Manuel F. Martinez of the U.S. Army 108th Artillery Group as follows:
For heroism in connection with ground operations against a hostile force in the Republic of Viet Nam: Sgt. Martinez distinguished himself by Valorous actions on June 9,1968, as squad leader of a self-propelled gunsupporting operation Lam Son 228. When Vietnamese forces became pinned down by withering fire from a well-entrenched North Vietnamese Army Company, Sgt. Martinez deployed his weapon to suppress the enemy barrage.
A medic riding on his vehicle was wounded by the fire. Sgt. Martinez leaped from the gun turret, completely exposing himself to a hail of bullets, and treated the medic. Returning to his gun, he then directed his crew in a systematic destruction of the insurgents position.
As ammunition began to run low, he fearlessly moved to obtain a resupply. While doing this, he was mortally wounded by a snipers bullet.
His valorous action was a decrews ultimate destruction of of the medic, and his courageous leadership resulted in his crews ultimate destruction of the enemy resistance. Sgt. Martinezs personal bravery and devotion to duty, at the cost of his life, were in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, and the U.S. Army.

Council Succeeds In Protest to DO
The West. Side Action Council and the other four action councils in Denver were successful in their protest .'last month against Denver Opportunitys proposal to cut down on money for the five action centers next year so the budget of the Neighborhood Journal could be greatly increased.
In September each action, council decided on priorities for action during the coming year and discussed suggestions for changes in the. program at each center. The West Side Action Council voted to ask for support for specific West Side activities rather than the city-wide newspaper published by the five action councils.
Seven Jobs Cut Out
However, the board of directors of* Denver Opportunity, eetiiig Nov 21, proposed to give the Neighborhood Journal of $24,000. The budget planning of $18,000 over its 1968 budget of $24,000. The -budget planing of the DO board further ignored the recommendations of the action councils by proposing to cut the action center staffs and central DO administrative staff by a total of seven persons.
At a meeting Nov. 27 the West Side Action Council voted unanimously to send a letter of strong protest to the DO board.

Mr. George Brown, chairman of the DO board of directors, was as follows:
66 Per Cent Increase The West Side Action Council, in their regular meeting Nov. 27, voted unanimously to lodge a vigorous protest with the Board of Directors pf Denver Opportunity as a result of the Boards action in reducing funds for neighborhood action centers in the budget adopted for 1969. In spite of the recommendations of the ifive Action Centers, the allocation for the Neighborhood Journal was increased 66% per cent at the expense of services provided through the Centers.
Again, the voices of the Target Areas have not 'been heard in making the budget.
We urge that the Board of Directors of Denver Opportunity submit a revised budget, setting funds for neighborhood action centers at an amount not less than the 1968 level, if necessary reducing the funds for the Neighborhood Journal to the current level or less.
Sincerely, (signed) Donald Gallegos, Chairman, West Side Action Council.
Last week (Dec. 6)., the DO board of directors announced that its proposals for next years budget have been reconsidered and that the budgets of

Why South Lincoln Did Not Get RECORDERS
Most residents of South Lincoln Park did not get their copies of the West Side/Recorder on time last month because the papers were picked up by maintenance men as fast as the boys delivered the papers to the units.
The boys protested to the men taking the papers out of the doorways, but were told there was a clean-up policy by which all give-away material is supposed to be picked up by maintenance men as soon as possible.
The boys then called their supervisor and told him the Recorders were being removed before residents could get them. He protested immediately to William Ratzlaff, manager of Lincoln Park Homes, who told the maintenance men they were not to remove the newspapers.
It was necessary to have more papers printed before the distribution could be made again in South Lincoln Park, thus delay-

Sgt. and Mrs. Manuel Martinez
Bronze Star Medal To West Side Man
A West Side man who lost his life in Viet Nam and later was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for heroism was Manuel F. Martinez, whose widow, Rose Marie Martinez, is the daughter of Mr.' and Mrs. Manuel J. Lara of 1256 Delaware St.
Martinez was born December 12, 1945, in Grand Junction, Colorado. He attended Baker Junior High School and West High School. He and Rose Marie Lara were married in 1964 and in 1966 moved to California where he was drafted. He was a truck driver at Fort Bliss, Texas, after his basic training there.
In October, 1967, Martinez left for Viet Nam. Last May Mrs. Martinez joined him in Hawaii for a week. June 9, she received notice that he had been killed in action in Viet Nam. Later the award was announced for Sgt./E5 Manuel F. Martinez of the U.S. Army 108th Artillery Group as follows:
For heroism in connection with ground operations against a hostile force in the Republic of Viet Nam: Sgt. Martinez distinguished himself by Valorous actions on June 9,1968, as squad leader of a self-propelled gunsupporting operation Lam Son 228. When Vietnamese forces became pinned down by withering fire from a well-entrenched North Vietnamese Army Company, Sgt. Martinez deployed his weapon to suppress the enemy barrage.
A medic riding on his vehicle was wounded by the fire. Sgt. Martinez leaped from the gun turret, completely exposing himself to a hail of bullets, and treated the medic. Returning to his gun, he then directed his crew in a systematic destruction of the insurgents position.
As ammunition began to run low, he fearlessly moved to obtain a resupply. While doing this, he was mortally wounded by a snipers bullet.
His valorous action was a decrews ultimate destruction of of the medic, and his courageous leadership resulted in his crews ultimate destruction of the enemy resistance. Sgt. Martinezs personal bravery and devotion to duty, at the cost of his life, were in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, and the U.S. Army.

Council Succeeds In Protest to DO
The West. Side Action Council and the other four action councils in Denver were successful in their protest .'last month against Denver Opportunitys proposal to cut down on money for the five action centers next year so the budget of the Neighborhood Journal could be greatly increased.
In September each action, council decided on priorities for action during the coming year and discussed suggestions for changes in the. program at each center. The West Side Action Council voted to ask for support for specific West Side activities rather than the city-wide newspaper published by the five action councils.
Seven Jobs Cut Out
However, the board of directors of* Denver Opportunity, eetiiig Nov 21, proposed to give the Neighborhood Journal of $24,000. The budget planning of $18,000 over its 1968 budget of $24,000. The -budget planing of the DO board further ignored the recommendations of the action councils by proposing to cut the action center staffs and central DO administrative staff by a total of seven persons.
At a meeting Nov. 27 the West Side Action Council voted unanimously to send a letter of strong protest to the DO board.

Mr. George Brown, chairman of the DO board of directors, was as follows:
66 Per Cent Increase The West Side Action Council, in their regular meeting Nov. 27, voted unanimously to lodge a vigorous protest with the Board of Directors pf Denver Opportunity as a result of the Boards action in reducing funds for neighborhood action centers in the budget adopted for 1969. In spite of the recommendations of the ifive Action Centers, the allocation for the Neighborhood Journal was increased 66% per cent at the expense of services provided through the Centers.
Again, the voices of the Target Areas have not 'been heard in making the budget.
We urge that the Board of Directors of Denver Opportunity submit a revised budget, setting funds for neighborhood action centers at an amount not less than the 1968 level, if necessary reducing the funds for the Neighborhood Journal to the current level or less.
Sincerely, (signed) Donald Gallegos, Chairman, West Side Action Council.
