P«K* U GREELEY TRIBUNE Wed., Oct. 22, 19G9 United Way Agency Creative Arts Center Fills Community Needs By PAUL EDSCORN Tribune SUff Writ.r At'the present time there are ·bout 150 Grceley area children studying one or more of the arts such as music, art, drama, dance and sewing who prior to the establishment of flic Community Center for Creative Arts, would not have had this opportunity. Before 1967 when the cente was organized there was littl or no opportunity for childrei to study drama or art oulsidi of school. Many children wen also .deprived of the opportunity to study any of (he arts becausi of insufficient financial ability. The center was established with the aid of a Boettcher Foundation grant to providi training in the arts for all per sons, regardless of financia ability, or artistic talent. In the classes being conducted there is no distinction among students Many are not able to pay for the training they are receiving but none in any class knows who these might be. Tlie backbone of the center are the dozen or so professionals and professionally trained people who donate their services, and the 30 or more college Students who volunteer to help. Each teacher is fully qualified to teach a subject such as sewing, piano, dance or art, and donates one aflernoon a week of his or her time to the center.. . The center is.housed in a large two story building at 1508 8th St. which was remodeled to pro vide Ihc space for the multiple activities of the center. Executive Director is Mrs. Howard Skinner. The basement was recently completed with the aid of contributions of labor and materials from the community t provide a combination danc and drama studio. There are six pianos in tin center. These are used not onl; for classes, but also allow chii dren a place to practice dining the week who do not have pianos at home. Describing the program, Mrs Skinner said it is fully integral etl with children drawn togethc: because of an interest in a par licular area. Each child, will lis or her own background, has something to contribute. "We have discovered many very talented children," she elaborated, "and have been able o give them an opportunity to develop this talent. "Others have been able to 'ind oul what a particular art s about." she continued. "Al- hough lacking in talent, they can gain an understanding of in art and have greater approbation for it as an adult."

"In our present society," she explained, "great pressure is put on a child to take all kinds of academic work and to meet standards which are rigid and quite high. An underprivileged youngster is behind when he jcgins school and has a hard :ime keeping up. "The arts, however, are not regimented. There is no set slumlord saying a child must be drawing in a certain way at a certain age. In the arts a child has the chance to create that which the child can be proud of "I feel that the whole pro gram can be an enrichment pro gram for the future adults of tin City of Greeley," Mrs. Skinnei concluded. The program of the art cen tcr is for children from five years of age through school, the bulk of the children in grades four througi Parents are also encouraged o take part in their children's .raining by attending art shows and recitals.

Washington Welfare Shows Sharp Upswing By CAROL HONSA The Washington Post WASHINGTON - Washington's welfare rolls increased so dramatically during the past fiscal year thai nearly 5 per cenl of Ihe city's population now receive some sort of public assistance By the end of July, 43,202 persons here were on relief. Welfare officials said there is no II indication tlial the upward trend will level off, and fears were expressed that there might not be enough money to go around. A-jump of 33 .per cenl in the biggest 'and most controversial welfare'program in Ihe city -aid to families with dependentj children -- accounted for much; of.lhe overall increase. "We're very concerned," said Winifred G. Thompson, city welfare director. ."We don't know where the money is going lo come from, quite frankly," she said. The lalesl statics illustrale the reason for her concern. Tlie 33 per cenl.increase in dependenl children rolls for Ihe year ending in June, 1969; compares with 8 to 12 per,cent increases in preceding. years.. In June, there were 32,957 persons enrolled in the AKDC program. By July, 1,094 names had been added, bringing the total lo 34,051. . The growing caseload meansl that the city, which spent $11.81 million in fiscal 1968 lor aid loi families with dependenl chil-i dren, had to spend $14.6 mil| lion in fiscal 1969. 'Under the program, a family of four gets $2,300 a year -- and this figure is $1,000 below the government - defined poverty standard for families of thai STRAYS NORTH - A rare sight in Weld County this past week was a young turkey buzzard, native of Mexico and Arizona.
