COALITION PRESENTS SIATE OF CANDIDATES TO PLANNING BOARD
The West Side Coalition has been one of eight neighborhood groups involved in recent efforts to make the Denver Planning Board more concerned with neighborhood and resident needs. The Denver Planning Board is responsible for advising the City Council and the Mayor on planning and zoning. Traditionally, the Board has consisted of a high percentage of people representing real estate and downtown interests. 1' " '
The first action taken by the eight groups was to prepare a slate of eight candidates for the Board. The West Side Coalition contributed the name of Father Joseph Torres. The eight names were then submitted to Mayor McNichols office with a letter which said, in part, that the Planning Board has seemed repeatedly to neglect the needs of people and to look at the city not in terms of human beings, but rather in terms of so many potential automobile movements and so many potential real estate transactions.
The groups urged the Mayor to fill the three vacancies that occurred this year from among eight names on the slate. The Mayor made only one of his appointments from the slate: Mrs. Beverly Biffle of Park HilL He also appointed Harold Cook,
president of Cook Plumbing and Heating Company, a real estate and construction industry supplier; and Hudson Moore, Jr., president of W. S. Cheesman Realty, one of the largest real estate firms in Denver.
The eight groups are now planning to work for changes in the structure of the Planning Board including its expansion and the reform of some of its procedures. The seven groups that are presently involved, besides the West Side Coalition, are the Capitol Hill Congress; the Citizens Community Planning Council; Greater Park Hill Community, Inc.; Preserve Our Way of Urban Residence; South Athmar Improvement Association; South Jackson Street Improvement Asociation; and the Washington Park Action Council.
Air Cushioned Liner Route Opposed By Our Coalition
At its June 17 meeting the Board of the West Side Coalition voted to oppose a route proposed along Co!lfax Avenue for an air cushion linear induction vehicle which is being planned by the Regional Transportation District.
The air cushion vehicle would run on an elevated track above the street. It is powered by electrical motors and follows a guideway. A double guideway providing for operation in two directions is sixteen feet wide.
The project currently being discussed would connect large existing or future parking areas
such as that at Bears Stadium with the downtown. The primary purpose would be to get downtown-bound commuters to park their cars at the edge of the downtown and then ride the vehicle in the rest of the way.
The Coalition objected to a Colfax route for the vehicle on the grounds that such a route would provide no needed transportation service for the West Side and that it would tend to bring more business development into residential parts of the neighborhood by tying the West Side even more closely to the downtown.
Ruben Leal of the West Side Coalition presents some of over 50 swim suits to West Side Youth. Hie suits were donated by the Coalition and member organizations such as the Inner City Parish.

Air Cushion Vehicle Goes Over Like Lead Balloon
In his June 5 column in the Rocky Mountain News Peter Blake had this comment about the proposed air cushion vehicle:
Denver needs public transportation, the argument goes, especially the poor, who cant afford to drive cars. And how is the new regional transportation district planning to help the poor? WeU, first they would like ... a modest $6 million in order to build an experimental tracked air cushion vehicle between downtown and Mile High Stadium.
All aboard, poor people, and join the 400 faithful who turn out nightly for the Bears games. That is, If you happen to Uve downtown.
Who knows what future projects the transportation district is planning for the underprivileged? How about an experimental monorail between the Denver Country Club and the First National Bank Building? Or an experimental subway between Cherry Hills ViUage and Stapleton Airport?
Mr. Blake has a good point. Study after study in Denver and in other cities has shown that employment in downtown areas is increasingly restricted to either the low-paying jobs (janitors, elevator operators, salesclerks) or the high-paying jobs (lawyers, bankers, stockbrokers).
For those who do not have the seven years of college required to be a lawyer or who did not inherit a bank, the best jobs are now at the edge of the city. These are the skilled, middle-paying, union-wage jobs.
In Denver, Samsonite has moved out to Montbello and Gates is moving to Littleton. Western Electric is building its enormous new plant in Northglenn. In other words, most of the Denver-area jobs in the middle-pay range are now in places like Montbello, Littleton, and Northglenn.
In the West Side where very few people are lawyers or bankers the kind of transportation that is most needed so that people can get to better jobs is not to the downtown hut out to new plants like the Gates plant in Littleton. When the Regional Transportation District becomes less concerned with making it easy for suburban bankers and lawyers to reach their skyscraper jobs and becomes more concerned with the needs of people like West Siders it will start talking about providing service out to places like the Littleton Gates plant.
Hopefully, though, if a route that is not damaging for the West Side can be found for the first air cushion vehicle line this will set an example for the later construction of lines out to Littleton and Montbello.

West Siders Need Facts On Hiring Procedures
What is hapening at the Action Center, and with the Action Council? We are not sure that any one can really answer these questions completely. Here are some of the facts as we understand them:
(1) When Leo Rodriquez resigned as director of the West Side Action Center, Miss Helen Lucero, Program director was named acting director, and the Personnel Committee of the Action Council was instructed to start taking applications for the position and screening people for the job. They had four main areas to judge each candidate in. These areas were education, experience, bi-lingual ability, and general knowledge and attitude concerning the West Side.
(2) Some 22 persons were interviewed for the job. Three including Miss Lucero were recommended to the total council and all were voted down. Then in a specially called meeting on the 10th of July the name of Tomas Archuleta was presented to the Council with the understanding that either he he approved or the job would go to Miss Lucero who had already been turned down by the Council. Tomas by the way at that time was the chairman of the council, and on the personnel committee. Under this pressure he was approved by the council at that time. Staff and Council members appealed to Mr. Buckles, head of the Denver Opportunity for a ruling in the situation. At a regular meeting of the Council on Monday, July 13th the Council unanimously reversed their action of approving Tomas Archuleta, and set up a new personnel committee with Beatrice Martinez as the chairman. Mr. Buckles appointed Harold Green from his office as the acting director. Applications for the directorship are available at the Action Center for anyone who is interested.
Some general comments: The Action Council is made up mainly of community people. There are a number of vacancies on the council. Interested West Siders should contact the Action Center for forms to try and fill these spots. West Siders should he allowed to choose their director (qualified) for the Center, and that person should be able to have a staff that is qualified to work urith him. It is our feeling that most of the mistakes that have been made this spring and summer concerning the Action Council and their attempts to find a qualified director have come from the inexperience that many of the members have in this area, and they will only acquire through direct experience. If we find facte that are different from this we will he glad to report them. In this issue we have tried to feature some of the newer Action Center Staff personnel. In the past the general staff of the Action Center has left a lot to be desired. Especially, this is true in the area of community leadership, and co-operation with other community organizations. We hope that this will he corrected in the future.

so much a job as it is something they enjoy doing.
Neither Abel or Mary are native Denverites. Bult they have sort of. adopted the West Side as their second home. Abel was born in Urapan, Michoacan, Mexico. He was a professional singer with a group in Mexico and first came to the States on tour. After one of the tours he decided to stay and settled in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1946. It was there he met and married Mary who is a native of that dty. In 1949 they visited Denver on a vacation and liked it enough to make it their home.
The Gallegos live on the North Side and are active in their community. But Abel noticed that there was a real lack of entertainment and recreation for youngsters on the West Side. In 1966 he had an opportunity to open the Santa Fe Theater which had not been operating regularly and had just come through bankruptcy.
Since that time he and his family have tried to provide a source for entertainment for West Siders. But. Abel and Mary feel they are giving more than entertainment. They are also providing the Spanish surnamed children on the West Side a chance to learn more about their culture. The movies shown are made in Mexico or South America and are in Spanish. Many are based on historical events in Mexico.
So everyone pitches in and works. When they first started, their oldest daughter, Lucy, helped them a lot. She is married now and lives in Louisiana with her husband and baby. So their teenager, Elaine is taking her turn at helping. And eventually, Molly, 5, will probably

have her turn. Right now, though, she mostly plays and sometimes naps in the office when the evenings get long.
The Gallegos also have a son living in Mexico with his grandparents.
Though the hours are long and the pace tiring, Mary and Abel both like what they are doing and think it is worth it in terms of their personal satisfaction.
They also have plans and hopes for the future of the Santa Fe Theater (Mary says Abel has the ideas, she just helps). The average weekly attendance
is gradually rising and they hope that eventually the stage area in front of the screen can be enlarged. Then they would like to have acting and dancing classes for young people with talent. Abel thinks that there are many Spanish surnamed young people who have lots of talent, but never have an opportunity to develop those talents and get started in entertaining.
The Gallegos family has earned a big thank you from the West Side for their efforts and confidence in behalf of the West Side.

I want it to be known to all that I have been and still do stand with the West Side Coalition, and its member groups such as the West Side Action Council in support of the Grape Boycott. My store sells only union picked table grapes and I am ready and willing to prove this to any customer who asks for proof.
I hope that my store is more than just a place to get a can of soup. I hope that it is a part of the West Side, and reflects some of the feelings and attitudes that are a part of the West Side. I have spent many years here on the West Side, and I hope that you feel like you can come to me and talk about the problems we might have. I am ready to listen.
People Priorities Cited by Dines
State Senator Allen Dines, has announced his candidacy for re-election to the state senate seat In District 3.
We hear much talk about priorities today, Dines said. The talk should come to an end. It should be replaced by positive action guided by the realities of what must be undertaken to heal our communities. He listed some of what he termed people priorities.
It is fundamental that educational opportunity be made fully accessible to all our youngsters.
Decent housing that provides for an environment which lends dignity and security to a family is central to what all of us are striving for. Good housing is one important key in keeping the family structure strong.
Core city problems, ranging from crime to sanitation services, have to be dealt with on a practical level right now. Should we wait much longer in meeting these problems head-on, the crisis of deterioration will reach the point of no return.
Dines, who soon will receive an award for his efforts on behalf of vocational education, was praised by a former president of Regis College for his work in education.
A navy veteran of the Pacific fighting in World War II, Dines is an attorney who received his law degree from Harvard University.
Active in many community and civic organizations, he lives at 1350 Logan St. He is the father of two children.
