City Council Supports Olympic Press Housing
October 24, the Denver City Council voted to support the Olympic Press Housing on both the East and Westside. Councill man Wyman and Koch attempted to postpone the vote until after the general election, because of the Olympic referenl dum which might defeat the Olymplics.
City Councils vote generated 1.4 million dollars of Model Cities and $600,000.00 of Capital Improvements money towards the project. The Federal Governl ment will supply the remaining 13 million needed for the project.
The Press Village will be used to house the newsmen who will be covering the 76 Olympics. After the Olympics are over the housing will be turned into low and moderate income housing.
The project in West Denver will be a 300 unit hi rise for the elderly, a 300 unit motel hotel complex and 300 units of scattered low income housing.
The Westside coalition, a neighborhood organization, is currently negotiating with D.U.R.A. to try and be the sponsor for the 300 units of
scattered low income housing. As the prospective sponsor the Coalition has involved minority architect^, minority contractors and sub contractors in trying to put together a housing facility that the whole city can be proud of.
The 300 units will be developed as cooperative housing with each tenant owning his unit. The housing will help reverse the trend of absentee ownership now being felt in West Denver, and will help develop more home ownership.
Coloradoans Against die 76 Olympics Should Vote Yes?
Due to much confusion on the Olympic Referendum which will be amendment number 8 on the November ballot, the Westside Recorder would like to clarify what a yes vote or a no vote will mean.
The statewide referendum was initiated by Citizens for Colorados Future, an environmentalist group that is opposing the 1976 Olympics on the grounds that the Olympics will; (1) create a heavy tax burden on residents of the state, and that this tax money could be better utilized in other areas, (2) that the Olympics will encourage more
people to come to Colorado to live, even after the Olympics are over. This will in the long view lead to the exploitation of the states resources to meet this need of countless numbers of potential new residents.
The statewide referendum, if passes, will cut off further state funding in support of the 1976 Winter Olympics.
What this means is that if you are against the Olympics you should vote YES on Amendment No. 8. Those individuals who want to have the Olympics should vote NO.
New Service at Adelante
Second Voter
The Westside Coalition conducted its second non-partisn voter registration drive of the year. The first drive was coordinated by Anna flores, 1319 Navajo, and reached approximately 2000 new registered voters. The second drive reached 1627 and was spearheaded by Shirley Gomes 1 So. Sherman, Alberta Crespin, 941 Kalamath, Josephine Martinez, 921 kalamath, Agapita Sandoval, 867 Galapago, Celina Garcia, 1110 Mariposa, Joe Romero, 951 Kalamath, Wilma Dabrowski, 1115 Inca st., and Germaine aragon, 1310 navajo.
The drive was conducted at the branch registration booths set up at Adelante Store and at Del Farm located at 1st and Broadway. Workers distributed flyers, went door to door and made phone calls encouraging residents to register to vote.
Voter registration is extremely important to a community like West Denver if we are to elect politicians who will share the views of residents and not the vested interest of a view.

There was aiso a drawing held for newly registered voters, with five twenty dollar cash prizes offered. The winners were Isabell Florez, 4509 Vallejo,
Reies Lopez Tijerina, Chicano civil rights activist, hosted a three day unit conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico on October 20,21 and 22.
The conference attracted Chicanos from througout the United States. The theme of the conference was Unity before Ideas, Leaders or organizations. The list of speakers and leaders present was an impressive one. Among those who spoke was Jose Angel Gutierrez, founder of La Kaza Unida in crystal city, Texas and who is now the national chairman of the organization.
Betty Benavidez, State Representative from District No. 6, addressed the congresso. she is the first Chicano elected to that post in the history of the state, and is the only Chicano now serving in a state legislature in the U.S. She pleaded with 2000 delegates to put political ideologies aside and work towards the goals and aspirations of Chicanos, and not to continue to put each other down because of differences in political views. Ms. Benavidez stated that chicanos should run for office to win and not merely run for the sake of running. She pointed out that although there are only three other chicano state legislators in Colorado, and that as a minority of a minority they are hard pressed to pass legislation, the have been able to stop legislation supported by agri-business and rural interests that would have been harmful to the farm workers in this state.
The conference which was organized with the intent of being non-political, took on a political flavor when La Raza Unida spokesman began introducing resolutions that the delegates present, support La Raza Unida candidates and the La Raza Unida platform.
The conference ended with many people polarized in their political views, but with a committment to work towards

justice- and equality for all Chicanos. Many of the delegates left with the opinion that the strength of the Chicano movement lies in the ability for Chicanos to be able to be free men and not pawns to be manipulated by any political party.
Use Romaine Lettuce in your Salad
The nationwide lettuce boycott continues were gaining more people every day. In Denver alone, as of Oct. 25, more than 16,400 informed and concerned people from all walks of life have signed pledge cards to boycott head lettuce. The movement grows in spite of opposition, opposition.
For the past two months we have been facing harassment and intimidation on White River Farms in Californis. The first contract signed with United Farm Worksers Union during the grape strikes was with Schenley corporation in 1966, which sold out to Butte Gas and Oil Co. this year, As a result, White River Farms are now owned by Butte Gas and Oil. As the date of expiration for ourcontract drew near, the UPW called for the negotiatin of a new contract and was told that Butte Gas and Oil had no intention of signing a new contract with
UPW. On August 28 when the contract expired, the 300 farmworkers at White river walked out on strike. Within two days, there 250 people in the fields, illegals recruited from Mexico to break the strike. What did the U.S. Immigration dept, do? Absolutely nothing aside from making a few sporadic arrests at the border. Authorities

Guest Editorial
This is a letter written in behalf of the individuals belonging to UMAS (Metro) who have taken part in recalling DiManna and organizing people to rgister and who have taken part in recalling DiManna and organizing people to register and vote. We feel that the mass media, while bringing up the issues to the general community of this city and state about the controversy involving DiManna, Ciancio and most of the power structure from the north side, has slanted and twisted the news in favor of that ruling clique.
We feel those people who are represented in the persons of DiManna and Ciancio are not interested in the progressive development, economically and socially of the Chicanos in the barrios of the north side and Denver as a whole. But because they are middle-class businessmen working from within the law and without for the primary purpose of profit, they do not necessarily care about the oppressive and exploitive conditions of the barrio.
Consequently, they have only shown neglect, misuse and abuse and do not represent us effectively in the political and social aspects of the barrio. Poor, in effective representation has for the most part been the rule instead of the exception when it comes to representing the Chicanos and other dark-skinned minorities within the two main political parties.
Locally and nationally they have shown through their practice, as our supposed political representatives to only represent the interest of the ruling class at our expense.
Our understanding as participatns in the movimiento of La Raza has developed to a point where many of us recognize the need to struggle politically independent of the two big business oriented parties which dominate American politics. We recognize them to be the two-headed monster feeding out of the same trough.
We are now taking part to develop El Partido de L^ Raza Unida in our struggle to liberate us from racism, economic abuse,police brutality, educational neglect, cultural genicide and many other negative conditions that the ruling class and the misguided middle-class majority has failed to deal with effectively.
We understand that these negative conditions naturally result because of the basic class contradictions a capitalist society engenders. In-essence, we do not merely strive in our independent thrust forward merely to be a bargaining power or agent for the two main parties, but by recognizing the obscene contradictions that are created by this system of government, we will move in and opposition to this materialistic and profit-oriented culture. Whatever approach and method is necessary to free ourselves from this worldly destructive system, we will adopt. We will not be discouraged or hindered in our efforts by the prejudice and contradicting stands the mass media has put forward in reporting about our endeavors. If it is thought that the stringent efforts the conservative rulers of this city are using is going to stop. They are underestimating our convictions. We realize that it takes sacrifice, a lot of work and time to move forward and the biggest obstacle in our liberation is the ruling class their supporters and the institutions they control.
P.S. This copy or rather the ones sent to the Post and News were signed by Sal Carpio, Dave Sandoval, Rueben Aguirre, along with about a dozen UMAS members.
La Raza Club At West
La Raza Club is Chicano students exposing awareness to the students about the many different problems the community faces...Culture awareness is also recognized. The are active in student government and leadership. We try and provide as much recreational activities such as camping, skiing and dances as possible.
A costume dance will be held at the Inner City Parish involving, Manuel, West, North, Lincoln, East and South. The purpose of the dance is to create Chicano Unity from the students of the different high schools. We plan to have an activity at least once a month in which all the high schools are involved. The club also hopes to help with community services.
The only officer in the club is the secretary who is responsible for finding a place to hold all meetings and recording minutes. The secretaries are Cindy Mares and Liz Pacheco. The reason they didnt want a president was because of the competitive process that must be followed to choose a president. They felt it was against their trait to build unity. They felt that this process would destroy the unity they were tyring to create. Even though there isnt a president, the meetings are held very orderly and the secretary helps to chair the meetings. Meetings are held every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month. The sponsors are Lino Gonzales and Martha Urioste.
The Westside Recorder staff is appalled at the handeling of the recall petition initiated against Councilman Eugene DiManna. The whole process of recall as spelled out in the City Charter is filled with inconsistencies, and only serves as notice to the residents of district No. 9 that the city has once again sided against the better interests of the residents it purports to serve.
The recall was initiated by the La Raza Park Committee, as a result of Councilman DiMannas actions this past summer, and his advocating the police to use

violent tactics in dealing with the youth at the North Denver park, the majority of whom are Chicano. At the same time he was trying to protect known criminals who have been linked with organized crime. Councilman DiMannas double dealing tactics have not gone unnoticed and unchallenged and this recall petition even though unsuccessful in unseating the councilman, demonstrates the degree of dissatisfaction that can be found in District No. 9 and the quality of representation the residents are receiving.
Westside residents, who also fill within District No. 9, have also witnessed examples of his political chicanery. The downzoning issue which he voted against is a prime example, others include his voting against the expansion of the Civil Service Commission, which would give minorities a greater voice in the hiring and firing of Police officials who abuse their authority, and also his refusal to meet in our neighborhood and respond to the needs of our community.
The harassment that has been aimed at the singers of the petition should not go unanswered. Certainly there should be a change in the City Charger that would not require each signer to take time off his job to come down to the City and County and prove he is a qualified elector. To insist that recall petitioners appear in person only demonstrates the city administrations insensitivity to its citizens.

The names Juvenile Hall, Lookout Mountain, buena vista, and Canon city are common and famliar to many persons living on the West side, normally if ones name is attached to any of these places, the possibility of future success in employment or advancement is seriously impaired.
Although this may e the rsult for many people, this is not what happened to Tom martinez, a Westsider who for the last five years has been deeply involved in community concerns. Mr. Martinez spent twelve of his thirty-five years in these institutions. during his time in Buena Vista, Mr. Martinez boxed for the Golden Gloves and in 1956 was awarded the trophy, for the outstanding class B fighter. Although Tom dropped out of school in the eigth grade, he used time in prison to finish his GED.
During the last two years, Mr. Martinez has been a caseworker for the Drug and Narcotics Addiction Treatment Program, which works with heroin addicts.

His past experience aong with knowledge of his own community, about which he cares deeply, has made his contribution to the treatment of addicts in Denver unique. Mr. Martinez was the first addict to be employed in the treatment -program in Denver, because of his responsibility and dedication, this program has been expanded t include nine other ex-addict counsellors. Currently, Mr. Martinez is urging the city to establish a treatment program for individuals addicted to drugs on the West Side of Denver, where there is- no such facility' available. He feels that because of his experience, kids will listen to him, while they might find it difficult to relate to an individual who has not experienced their problems with drus. He feels it important to use his drug experience in a positive way.
His deep concern forth community hs brought Mr. Martinez involvement not only into his job at the treatment center, but into organizations slving the total problems f the West side, currently he is the Chairman of the West Side Action council; a member of the Denver Commission on Community Relations; Board member of te West Side Enterprises Corporation, which operates Adelante Supermarket; Secretary of the Denver Opportunity Board; and a member of the Criminal Justice committee, when asked what he felt were the main issues for the West side, he mentioned the relocation of families in Auraria, the Olympic press housing, drugs, and community control. He feels thatpeople need to work at a problem to stick with it until the solution is accomplished. Since his involvement, he has watched people develop into productive individuals wo have grasped ideas and have carried them hrough to their solutions.
Mr. Martinez is a second-generation Westsider. His parents, who moved from New Mexico in april of 1924 to live on the West Side, were the third Chicano family in the area. When asked why he and his wife Beatrice havent left the West side, they commented that It is no time to leave when the community is ust getting itself together. So much is to be done, and when we begin a task, we want to complete it." The Martinezs have six children. The family lives at 138 W. 11th Ave.
Letter to the Editor
The charges of political prostitution made by Rudolpho (Corky) Gonzales must not go unanswered. Mr. Gonzales loose mouth attributed to an overinflated ego is damaging to any meaningful progress others are making in behalf of our people," said State Representative Betty Benavidez.
To call people that represent a broad spectrum of the Chicano movement vendidos (sellouts). people such as Ceasar Chavez Reies Lopez Tijerina, Lt. Governor Roberto Mondragon. Jose Angel Gutierrez, myself and the hundreds of people who organized the conference is not only an act of irresponsibility, but an insult to the thousands of Chicanos all over this country who do not choose to be represented by those who feel that solutions to the problems can only come about by rhetoric and intimidation."
Mrs. Benavidez said, "As for myself, I strongly resent the charges of "political prostitution," simply because I choose to use another vehicle other than the one Mr. Gonzales advocates. I feel that regardless of the vehicle that is used, it is a matter of dedication and committment to improving the conditions of the people that is important, and not loosely hung labels and broad generalizations.
I challenge Mr. Gonzales to publically prove that my work and committment has not been in the best interests of our people."
As a member of the central committee and co-chairman of the congreso, I feel that there needs to be a clarification of the intent of the congresos purpose. Obviously, because of Mr. Gonzales attitude, the unity part of the program was too idealistic, but those elements dealing with culture and land reform were addressed by those delegates that chose to deal with the issues at hand and not go off into political and philosophical tangents. An example was the position paper on land grants drawn up by over twenty lawyers and professors. Another positive workshop was communications with Chicanos representing the mass media, who provided excellent documentation and direction for use throughout the country. Methods of
implementing bi-lingual education in the southwest was also discussed."
The failure that has been mentioned was only in the area of political direction, because of certain individuals advocating that the only possible vehicle to the solutions of our problems is La Raza Unida Party.. The disagreement comes about because those that are more open minded about such things feel we cannot limit our avenues to one* but should take advantage of all vehicles to achieve social reform and justice in this country.

Help is available for the Viet Nam war vet through the Denver Veterans Opportunity Center in the areas of Education and Employment. The DVOC also serves to recruit, counsel and aid in the transition to civilian life.
Unemployment among Viet Nam vets, between the ages of 20 and 29, is 30 percent higher than for thse in the same age group who are not veterans. Unemployment is even higher among those under 24; up to 40 percent higher, for Chicanos the outlook is even more dismal.
Where education is concerned, of the 5.5 million who are veterans of the Viet Nam War, one fourth have returned without high school education. And only 12 percent of those educationally disadvantaged have used the GI Bill.
The DVOC seeking better statistics than these, made it their objective to help veterans return to school, enable them to acquire their GED and go on to higher education under the GI Bill funding. The DVOC also assists veterans in securing

On Sunday night, October 9, a band of 40 to 50 citzeh vigilantes attacked the Poplar field Office of the UPW where around 12 volunteers were cleaning the office. For 4 hours they were assaulted with gunfire and a barrage of bricks, bottles, and rocks, their repeated calls to the police brought no help whatsoever until after the vigilantes had left. One of the office staff was hit in the head with a brick, suffered a concussion, and had to be hospitalized. Only 3 "Good American Citizens" had charges

All this is done by the use of recruiter-counselors or outreach workers who aid the vets on an individual basis. Veterans are recruited from the community to assist with any of the problems as they easily relate to the problems of people in the community.
The program is currently headed by Jim Chavez, a veteran; but as of the date of publication will have moved on to an area where he can better aid La raza. The present outreach recruiter-counselors are:

The strike at White River is almost over now. How can farm workers with so little power compete with these tactics?
In California also, the farm workers union will be killed if Proposition 22 on the November ballot passes. The bill, in short, makes boycotts extremely difficult and also makes it pratcically impossible for migrant farm workers to vote in ranch elections.
Remember your promise to boycott head lettuce until farmworkers are given decent living and working conditions?? This is what its all about, carnales.
If you want to help or if youve got any questions, call the Denver boycott Office 333-1278.

The Westside Action council and Center located at 1100 Santa Fe Drive are striving to become an agency which will truly benefit the people of our community.
This is being done by a variety of services being offered at the Westside Action center such as; Food Stamp Certification, Job Placements, Job training, civil Rights Specialist, Tenants rights, La raza mental Health Services, Denver Veterans Opportunity Center, and Westside Improvement Association, and by organizing the community.
The Action Council has also implemented some business ventures such as the Adelante Supermarket, La Sangre Housing corporation and Westside Human Services. La Sangre Housing corporation provides emergency housing at 1108 Santa Fe and Westside Human Services is a holding corporation which allowed the Action Center to purchase a van to be used in the delivery of groceries at Adelante Supermarket.
At present, the Westside Action council and Center are being funded by the Office of Economic Opportunity through Denver Opportunity. In addition the Action Council receives Block Grant funds which are allocated to each Action Center according to the population in their respective target areas to implement special programs such as; Housing, Summer youth Recreation, body and fender Shop, Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts, and Adelante Community Grocery Store.

USDA representatives will advise Spanish speaking firms how to contract with the Federal Government. Contract work with state and local governments that may result from USDA grants and loan programs also will be discussed. USDA State Rural Developmnt Committees will organize the workshops in areas of high concentration of Hispanic population.
The workshops are being held in accordance with a recent memorandum by USDA Secretary Earl L. Butz reemphasizing the Departments committment to promote minority business enterprises. Secretary Butzs memorandum displays his deep concern for the provision of assistance to the Spanish Speaking, according to Henry M. Ramirez, Chairman of the Cabinet Committee, we hope that other agencies will take a look at USDAs efforts and follow suite. The Small Business Administration and the National Economic Development Association NED) are also cooperating in he project.
and Center are looking towards the future with the desire to become self-sustaining, and the only way this would be possible would be for the Action Center to become autonomous from Denver Opportunity and become self-supporting.
On the weekend of October 13, 1972 the Westside Action Council and Center staff attended a planning session at Caps lodge near Central City. The session started Friday night and ended at noon on Sunday. The facilitators were Rupert J. Hernandez and Gilbert cisneros from R.J. Hernandez and Associates.
Jointly the Council and Staff decided on the goals and objectives for the future. The strengths and weaknesses of the Action Council Staff were also discussed and it was decided to work on improving the weaknesses.
By the last day of the planning session it had become very clear that it was imperative for the Westside Action council and center to become self-sustaining and a plan was set forth which would create a CDC (Community Development corporation), which would enable the Action council to develop more businesses, not only will it allow the Action Council to acquire businesses but it would make it possible for community residents to go into any type of business they might desire through the help of CDC. (Community Development Corporation) The following is a chart showing how it would work. For further information you can call the Westside Action Center at 534-5141.

A Development of Community Involved Workers is Our
Goal to Unity
Best of Luck To Jerry And Becky Garcia
Jerry has worked for six years in the Westside community as a youth director and community developer. Becky and the people within the community and parish people contributed a great part in influencing Jerry and his wife Becky to become involved in neighborhood development in the Westside. This work was involved \vith adult, youth and organizational levels.
Among community programs Jerry and Becky played a specific role in, was the Westside Coalition. Here efforts were spent on rezoning which would keep our community residential. Also, housing for the poor and helping to create home ownership for our people. Jerry was also the chairman of. the Coalition, which very much involved people from the community supporting the communitys needs.
Jerry was an advisor for the Westside Recorder, a neighborhood owned newspaper. At this level Jerrys wife Becky edited news which was affecting our community and brought issues which concerned our involved people and hoped to create more people in the Westside to become involved.
Jerry worked closely with Miles Rademan on the community Renewal Program, which basically, efforts were spent on physical planning of the Westside parks development and revision of street patterns in pur community.
Within the educational program Jerry has worked with community schools such as: West High School, Baker Jr. High, Elmwood, Greenlee, Fairmont Elementary schools, and St. Joes elementary and high school. At West, Jerry became involved with teachers on a community-teacher relationship. Here Jerry and school
teachers worked on the drop-out problems and together solved problems facing the high school student. He also helped together with school officials in waivering fees for students who couldn't afford to go to school and also with students who had problems wth their peers. Jerry also spent time with Baker Jr. High students and helped with problems similar to that at West.
Along with Ramiro Cruzaedo and other concerned community people, Jerry worked extensively with the physical planning of Elmwood elementary. Results such as the construction presently being developed for the new Elmwood elementary was much accredited to the efforts of neighborhood involvement. Also to bring out the name change of Elmwood to La Escuela del Pueblo, Jerry volunteered as a field-day Judge at Escuela del Pueblo which brought out Jerrys concern for youth in the Westside.
Also at Greenlee and Fairmont, Jerry became involved with school programs for the disadvantaged and dropouts and again volunteering for field day programs and making announcements thru the Recorder pertaining to each program the school teachers requested written articles for.
At St. Joes Jerry worked with Sister Canesius and Father Sullivan with students having problems. Establishing good-relationships among students in different schools with the community .
Within the drug program, Jerry became involved with all the schools in the Westside community. Basically, the work involved was centered on teachers, community people, and community organizations for input into the prevention of drug use within the community.
Jerry and Becky are involved politically to influence other neighborhood people to register to vote for community representatives who are working for the welfare of the Westside people.
Jerry received a grant from the Ford Foundation to travel for
one year to talk to people about community problems and resolutions to these problems. Throughout the U.S. After observing various nationwide programs and issues confronting these communities Jerry hopes to become knowledgeable of various problems which could
help our community in terms of resolutions. Such as housing for the poor, cooperatives, within the community and placing
community representatives on city, state and organizational levels.
Jerry and Becky plan to return
to our community in December of 73. Jerry mentions that, we would like to thank all the people that helped Becky and myself work to provide a better community for the people. We also hope more dedicated people become involved in their own communities, either thru schools, churches, organizations and through voting. This we feel would keep people personally involved with the communitys welfare and growth and also refrain people like DiManna representing a community they deny to support or care less about about but their own personal gains.

West Side Street Academy
For the past two years the Westside Street Academy has been funded by Model Cities. In January 1973 that funding ends and the Denver Public Schools are planning to fund the programs continuance. The Street Academy has been working for three years with children from West Denver who have not been happy in their regular junior high schools. This year the school has a new community aide: Ernesto
Ballester, has joined the staff after several successful years with Denvers Neighborhood Youth Corps. Still with the program are John T. Doyle, Tom Stevens, Billy Heiser and Geraldine Hodges.

Recently the school helped pass out leaflets advertising tie Adelante Supermarket, a community owned store established by the Westside Action Council.

The Westside Youth Center and Auraria Community Center have combined efforts to develop a community school with the cooperation of Baker Jr. High. The program has been established for students that are not attending school but have the desire to learn. At this time, the enrollment is limited to ten pilots students, thus allowing individual attention for those students to improve their academic skills. The students named their community school Aztlan Jr. High.
The school will use Auraria Center facilities as well as the Youth Center. Textbooks and testing materials have been provided by Baker Jr. High. The school structure has been set up by community people and the students under the direction of
Lois Lujan. University students in the community assist with classes. The program is a combination of academic and community education. The curriculum includes Math, English, Language Skills, Biology, and Cultural Awareness. Field trips and learning expenditions will be an integral part of the program.
Aztlan Jr. High is the first step toward developing a full scale, relevant community school for our youth that have been pushed out of the public schools in systematic ways. With the committments and efforts of the students and teachers, learning academic skills and self-pride can become a reality for our community youth and therefore success for our community as a whole.

Chicano Volunteer Program
Miss Susan Bashant, Colorado State Volunteer Probation Services, coordinator, was instrumental in starting the Chicano Volunteer Probation Counselor Program. She became convinced of the need for a special service in probation services for the Chicano people.
Beginning in September of this year, the Chicano Volunteer Probation Counselor Program, was created to encourage Chicanos to become volunteer counselors in Probation services. Three Chicano volunteer coordinators very carefully selected to coordinate the program in three counties. Robert Vialpando is working in the Denver County Court Probation Services, Bepjamin Alires is with Adams County and Ms. Elisa Arms in Jefferson county.
The special need for this program has been illustrated by the high crime rate in the Chicano community. For example, according to a recent report for the Colorado Civil Rights Commission based on the
total population of the city of Denver (514,678 persons), 74.4 percent are anglo, 14.5 percent are described as Chicano, 9.1 percent as Black and 1.8 percent as others. In the same report of 3172 County Court Probationers, 31.46 percent according to surnames are Chicanos, of the 1177 District Court Probationers, 26 percent are Chicano, 50 percent Anglos, 22 percent Blacks, 1.1 percent others. The Chicano also constitutes about 50 percent ofthe inmates at the State Prison, not to mention the other countless institutions in our state.
By becoming a volunteer, you can offer friendship and support in trying to discover the reasons behind a probationers repeated offenses and encourage positive changes. Only with your help, can we reduce the crime rate as well as helping your brother to help himself, says Robert Vialpando. For further information contact Robert Vialpando -297-2971 Ben Alires 659-1161 and Ms Elisa Armas 279-6511.
Wcstside youths take time to pose for a picture. They and members of Co. H. 19th Special Forces of the Colorado National Guard

National Chieano
Health Organization
The National Chieano Health Organization (NCHO), recently established a Denver regional office at 1115 Broadway Building, Rooms 115 and 116.
Mario Padilla, is the Denver Regional Coordinator for the federally funded NCHO program.
According to Mr. Padilla, the objectives of the program will be as follows:
1. To recruit Chieano students into the medical field.
2. To serve as a central informational and referral center for health professional schools and associations with active recruitment programs.
3. To insure Chieano representation and input within the deliberating councils of national health associations, health professional school associations, and federal and private agencies which are involved with health manpower development.
4. To provide a coordinated means of disseminating information and educational counseling on health professional careers.
5. To serve as a financial aid informational and counseling center for minority health professional and pre-professional students.
6. To reinforce, motivate and
assist (a) the Chieano pre-professional student along the health careers pathway, (b) the Chieano health professional student to return and practice in a low-income health shortage area (barrio).
The Denver regional office will cover a two state area: Colorado and Utah. Other regional offices are located, or will be located in areas with a significant amount of Chieano population. The National (NCHO) office is located in Los Angeles, California.
Chieano students from junior high school, high school, and graduate level will be assisted on the medical careers pathway. We j are hopeful that within years to come these students wll fill the critical shortage of Chicanos in the health professions. At the same time they will be able to relate better with their patients, both culturally nd bilingually. For further information on the newly established Denver NCHO program, call 573-4904.
3. To continue pressure and possible legal action against those institutions which still adhere to unrealistic and discriminatory admission policies and who admit only a token number of Chieano students.

In his 18 years in the United States Senate Gordon Allott has proven time and time again that he does not support programs that help people. Here is the way Gordon Allott votes:
LEGAL SERVICES for the poor Allott voted no.
DAY CARE SERVICES Allott voted no.
Unemployment compensation for MIGRANT WORKERS Allott voted no.
Amendment to extend the VOTING RIGHTS ACT Allott voted no.
Free FOOD STAMPS for families with less than $60 per month income Allott voted no. MEDICARE Allott voted no.
Increased funding for HEAD START Allott voted no.
Social SECURITY early retirement Allott voted no.
But, Gordon Allott doesn't always vote no. On some key issues he votes yes. For example:
Reduce taxes for OIL COMPANIES
Federal guarantee of $250 million loan to LOCKHEED AIRCRAFT CORP. $600,000 for research on the use of birds in warfare Allow Senators to receive gifts from lobbyists
Limit power of EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES COMMISSION To use tax money for the Supersonic transport plane
To place Carswell and Haynsworth on the Supreme Court
Allott voted yes. Allott voted yes. Allott voted yes. Allott voted yes. Allott voted yes. Allott voted yes. Allott voted yes.
Gordon Allott has forgotten who elects him every six years. In speech before the Colorado Association of Broadcasters, Gordon Allott called on the Federal Communications Commission to be less sensitive to the political aspirations of minorities."
But Gordon Allott isn't the only one running for the U.S. Senate this year. His opponent, Floyd Haskell, sponsored a bill to let the children of migrant workers go to public schools. He sponsored the truth-in-lending bill, and he sponsored the first anti-Vietnam war bill to pass through a state house of representitives. Floyd Haskell is a man who cares about people all the people.

Sargent Shriver, Candidate for Vice-president is shown addressing Westside residents in front of Adelante store, located at 727 Santa Fe.
On October 4th, Sargent Shriver, vice-presidential candidate, visited Adelante Super Market located at 727 Santa Fe and addressed a crowd of some three to four hundred residents.
Shriver who is running on the Democratic ticket with George McGovern, stopped at the community owned and operated grocery store to spotlight the branch registration at the store, that has proven to be highly successful.
He was met at the store by state representatives Betty Benavidez and Ruben Valdez and by state Senator Roger Cisneros, all of whom endorse McGovern and Shriver for president and
After walking through the store, visiting with branch registration workers and talking with many residents, Shriver stepped outside to address the crowd who didnt have an opportunity to hear him. Outside Shriver was given a head of union lettuce, symbolic of the farmers struggle for equality and justice. Both. McGovern and Shriver are supported by Cesar Chavez, Chicano national leader and organizer of the United Farm Workers Organization. Shiriver addressed himself to the plight of iarm workers and all oppressed people and pledged to work with all groups in seeking equality in
employment, housing, and education. He also pledged to end the Vietnam War, a war that sends minority people and poor whites to fight and support a corrupt military dictatorship in Vietnam.
Shrivers appearance at the store received national attention and spotllighted the Westsides effort at community control. It was the first time that a vicel presidential candidate has stopped to address the residents of this community.
Later that night Shriver addressed a large gathering at Regis College Fieldhouse before ueparting for another town on his campaign trail.

^11 Neighborhood Notes 1
Alfredo and Juanita Herrera, past residents of the Westside, and organizers for Cesar Chavez spent last week visiting friends they made while organizing the grape boycott.
Willis Moore had a visitor two weeks ago from St. Francis, South Dakota. His visitor was Johnny Blue-Horse, who is a former Westsider and some day plans to come back to Denver and again reside on the Westside.
Willis a gentleman of Cherokee and Irish descent is a young nice looking 75 year old. He operates a clothing Thrift Store at 1381 Kalamath St. where he also lives. He was born and raised in Oklahoma and has lived on the Westside for eight years.
A democrat all his life, he thinks Nixon might win because of all his money and his conniving lies. But he hopes for the best. Willis definitely will vote.
Mrs. Leah Williams has been sick of Bronchitis for three weeks. Though not feeling well she does not hesitate to say where she stands concerning her party-Democrat.. Says Leah, You bet Im a Democrat, Im going to die a Democrat. Nixon has really done nothing for the poor. Too bad some of my people are Uncle Toms, they should realize and understand that President Nixon doesnt give a damn for them or any other poor people. Leah is a strong minded and Independent lady, who is near 60 and a young one at that. Leah has lived in No. Lincoln Projects for many years.
Mrs. Frances' Porter born March 2,1902 has been a resident of West Denver for 15 years and has lived at her present address about 8 years. She and her husband (who passed away last year) lived in a home which now KVTV is housed in and rest of the block are commercial and parking lots. Too bad", says Mrs. Porter, because we certainly need homes here in our community." Mrs. Porter was born in Gunnison, Colorado. When very young her mother passed away. Her father worked as sexton of the cemetary there. Out of necessity she was placed in St. Clairs Orphanage, where she lived for many years. Life was strict and hard at the orphanage. Rules were obeyed, if not out came the metal ruler and before the day was over you had real red palmed hands. Mrs. Porters parents came from Switzerland. Mrs. Porter recently donated shaving soap to
senior gentlemen. George McGovern is her man. Home is 1219 W. 13th Ave.
The Canteen at 1043 14th Ave. which sells burritos, hamburgers, pop and also serves as a shoe shine Parlor is operated by Jesse Gibbs a resident of north Lincoln homes for 20 years.
Jesse was born and spent his boyhood in Texas. At age of 8 he worked in a meat market where he earned a dollar a week and meat to carry home for he and his mother. By then their home was fatherless; mother took in washing. In those old days, says Jesse, we heard what mama and dad said. We didnt tear things, we didnt do many things like are happening now, we had better not. Instead we worked and helped with the support of the family. Then we-didnt have movies or dances, we had church suppers. That was our social life. When older worked for a doctor who later helped send Jesse to Preview College 50 miles out of Houston, Texas. Jess was interested in mechanics and that is what he took up in school. Most who attended this college were sons of influential Negros, It was one of the finest colleges. Jesse is a Democrat all the way. Jesse says people rule that have money. You have no money, no power unless you really unite.
Enjoying a birthday visit from daughter Loreen Quillan of Texas was Mr. Bill Arnold who has lived in north Lincoln home over 25 years. He has no qualms about his age, was 93 years old Sept. 4th and proud of it. Says Tex nowadays this youung whippersnappers need to be taken back to the wood shack except there is no woooden shacks; but Irespect the youth of today because they speak their minds which we couldnt and I remember swiping watermelon from the nearby fields. Iwent to school very little either 2nd or 3rd grade and I most of the time went in the front door and out the back door.
But did I get whipped, usually with a tree limb switch, I was full of the devil. He never told a lie he said, unless to avoid a whipping. He and his two brothers won the Championship one year for picking the most cotton. He was born in Navorro County, Texas. Later on he had a Model T ford and if he didnT BABY IT, IT MIGHT GIVE OUT WITH A STRONG KICK WHEN YOU CRANKED IT. He witnessed the KKK burn a cross and vigilantes being whispered about. His first home he built of adobe. He
swears he could cook better than his wife. He can tell the best jokes around here he claims. About the election-VOTE DEMOCRAT. About Social Security increases-very unfair to get a raise and then deduct it. from your pension check and maybe throw you out of Medicaid which people badly need. Mr. Arnold lives with family at 1317 Navajo St.
Tito Anaya has been living in the westside since 1923.
Tito Anaya has been living in the westside since 1923. He came from Clayton, New Mexico. Tito right now is uptight with what he feels are atrocities committed to people who receive Social Security and old age pension. Such as the increase in rent if you live in the projects when you get on Social Security or pension raise. Deductions from one (heck to the other when you get a raise in either check. I have money for nothing. I am sick and tired of the way we are tossed about. We need for oui legislators in the state to act now! I have a severe illness and I also need proper nutrition for my health.
About the Presidency I believe strongly in Mr. McGovern. Hopefully through him things in the U.S. will improve. Nixon is no good. He is for the rich, the big man with money, not for the little man like me. Tito lives in So. Lincoln homes.
William Wheeler of 1045 Navajo St. age 73 from Colorado Springs who has been a Westsider for about 30 years. Right now my concern is who will be our next president. I have been a democratsince I was able to vote. I believe in what McGovern and Shriver have to say. I try to be fair concerning President Nixon, but to me he is a shrews, crafty, money and power hungry. We need a president who keeps his word.

Johnson BRANCH, and a sophomore at West High School Runners up were Lincoln Parks Branch, which awarded westside youth Ray Gomez 16, of 971 Galapago, and Tim Harvey of 815 S. Patton Ct. received the award for Churchill Owen Branch.
An increase in Social Security, la decrease in pension, Big Deal! If Nixon wins he might share his mansions with us, the old-age pensioners and people on Social (Security because pretty soon we might not be able to make ends meet, which we already are doing.
