Overview

Inaugural issue. ''Truth and accuracy are the only masters The West End Press will have. It is not a newspaper designed to make much money. Rather it is intended to serve well a community that long has been without a publication it could call its own. These columns will never be closed to constructive thought on any side of a question. We desire to gather and to print all the news of life as it goes on in the homes, the schools, the stores, and on the streets of our community. Opinions will be reserved to the editorials; facts alone will appear in the news stories. We have no quarrel with any existing publication. Our claim to support is simply that we will present every week a vivid, interesting and truthful account of what happens on the West End. The support we expect is continued subscriptions, adverstising from our own merchants, and a generous response to our appeal for news and comment on timely topics''--A Statement of Policy. News coverage includes: paving and widening of Colfax Avenue, and activities of the Lincoln Literary Society, Boy Scout Troop 4, the Gigolo Club, Dickinson Branch Library, Phi Sigma Delta, University of Denver, Denver Young Judaea, Rude Community Center, Guldman Center, and the Denver City Council.
