Editorial Comment



Another step in the progress of the Kentucky Negro Educational
Association is marked by this, the first presentation of an official
teachers’ journal controlled and published by the Colored teachers of
Kentucky For the past eight years the present secretary has issued
the K. N. E. A. Bulletin, which had developed into an eight page paper,
sent out several times each year. Our K. N. E. A. Journal is to be
published .bi-monthly during the school year and will contain from
twenty to forty pages per issue. It will contain matter of general in-
terest to teachers and friends of education as Well as present in various
issues the features of the program of activities to be sponsored hy this

While this publication is under the management of the K. N. E. A.
secretary, the president, organizers, and heads of departments will
make frequent contributions. Moreover, any tacher or school official
in Kentucky should feel free to send in contributions to this Journal.
Superintendents of schools are urged to cooperate with us in handling
this publication through the contfibution of educational articles or news
items, and by urging their colored teachers to subscribe to the JournaL.

This publication is being entered as second class matter at 'the
Louisville Post Office, being listed for subscription at the rate of fifty
cents per year. Every colored teacher in Kentucky is urged to become
a subscriber to the K. N. E. A. Journal

There Will be selected advertisements in each issue of this journal
and friends of education are urged to advertise with us. The Kentucky
Central Life (L Accident Insurance Company has contracted to advertise
on the outside cover in each issue. The colored citizens of Kentucky
should Show their appreciation of their patronage by patronizing them.
The Kentucky State Industrial College and Lincoln Institute have also
given advertisements for all of the 1931 issues of our Journal. Let us
boost these schools.

Attention is called to the teachers .utside cover of this pub-
fication. It was designed at the suggestion of the secretary by Mr. Max
Sheppard, the son of the late Dr, W. H. Sheppard, noted missionary and
friend of the K. N. E. A. Mr. Sheppard is 3 Louisville boy of whom
we are proud.

The K. N. E. A. secretary desires to acknowledge valuable sugges~
tions from Mr. R. E. Williams, secretary of the K. E. A., v'ho has con—
tinuously sent to this organizafion issues 0! the Kentucky School Joul—
ual and shown a fine spirit of cooperation.



The Fifty-Foam}: Annual Meeting of the K N E. A. will be in
Louisville April 15-18, 1931i Plans are now being made for me se-
curing of outstanding speakers for the program. There will also be
featured the usual annual contests, exhibits, and sectional meetings.
A track meet at the Louisville Armory will he an added feature of the
1931 meeting. There will also be elected a new K. N. E. A. president.
the term of President Humphrey expiring at the April meeting. Every
Kentucky teacher should start to plan to he in Louisville on Aprfl
15, 1931.



After some discussion at the 1930 session of the K. N. E A., it was
decided to continue the industrial exhibits. Not enough schools have
sent exhibits the past few years and more schools should have work on
display if this feature of our Work is to continue. The Industrial Edn-
cation Department will supervise the exhibits at the 1931 session. Mr.
George L. Bullock, secretary of this department” will be in active
charge of this part of our progmm. Pm. Bullock is now planning a
list of the items to be exhibited at the 1931 session for publication in
the December Kl N. E. A. Journal. Write him at the Central Colored
High School. Louisville, Kentucky, sending in your suggestions and
items you would like included in the list of exhibits.



The interest shown in the several annual state-wide spelling bees,
which the K. N. E. A. has sponsored, warrants their continuance The
Elementary Education Department, under the direction of MN. L. H.
Smith, Chairman, Lexington, Kentucky, will, therefore, sponsor such
a contest for 1931. Suggestive words will be printed in the December
K. N. E. A. Journal, and the rules of the contest will be outlined. Send
in your suggestions before that time.

 Kentucky Athletics

After carefully surveying the
work being rlone by the Athletic
Association of other Southern
states in connection with the de-
velqyment of a state Wide athletic
program, many of the coaches
and principals of our High Schools
in Kentucky, came together fora
meeting whale definite plans were

' worked out, whereby, this state
might develop a combined pro-
gram of athletics that might em-
brace every high School in Ken-

There appeared to be three dis-
tinct districts, that were already
functioning in the various sections
of Kentucky. The names of these
sections are: The Blue Grass
Section, that functions under the
name of the The Blue Grass Athle-

tic Association: the Western Sec-
tion, which embraces the schools
in Western Kentucky, and the
Mountain Section.

The President of the Kentucky
Atheletic Association, J. Max
Bond, invite: the principal of
every single High School in Ken-
tuclq' to send their schedules to
his office at 214 Pythian Temple,
and to keep close tab on outstand-
ing players in order that an all.
state team might be nicked.

The Kentucky Athletic Asso-
ciation plans to sponsor a State
Wide Basketball Tournament, and
a State Wide Track Meet. Such
a program, however, will require

 Report of the Legislative Committee

We, your committee on: legisla-
tion, beg leave to make the ffllaw—
ing report of certain leyislative
measures affecting Negro educa~
tion and progress, which were
passed‘by the General Assembly
of 1930:

We met in the distinguished Iii:—
tle City of Frankfort several times
last fall and winter to discus some
problems pertaining to our edu-
cational progress from several
viewpoints. The Negroes of Ken-
tucky are truly on trial. It is the
duty of the leaders of the race to
find out what is due the race under
the State and Federal “Constitu-
tions as well as the Common
School Law and then plead and
contend until justice is fully es
tablished. We believe that such
leadership should not be confined
to the teachers alone but should
include leaders in every progres-
sive walk of life,—-the farmer,
factory hand, physician, minister,
miner and others interested in the
yet we realize that in the final
analysis the great purpose is the
uplift of the child and a complete
citizenship of the Commonwealth
and of the world

Realizing that there is not an
accredited college in Kentucky for
Negroes, was proceeded to outline
a tentative budget for the colleges,
the one at Frauldofl and the one
at Paducah. We believe on r
budget was a reasonable one for
operating accredited schools. We
fell short of our request; but the
General Assembly appropriated
$190,000 for Frankfort, $189,000
for West Kentucky or about
$379,000.00 for both colleges.

For these appropriations we are
profoundly grateful. That was
truly a mark of interracial good
will. Lei: us cherish hope that out
of such liberal appropriations to
our State Colleges there will come
forth two accredited colleges for
the higher education of the Negro
youth of Kentucky Your commie
tee noticed that the Colored Nar-
mals and Colleges are not listed
in the columns of the other Nor-
mals and Colleges and therefore
fail to share in the special funds
according to the Biennial Report,
but are meandered and catalogued
under name of Vocational and
Industrial Institutions.

We ask not for new laws, but
rather for the proper execution
of those spread upon the Statutes
of the State.

The Colored Children’s Home
Society will receive $37,500.

This is the first time known to
man that the Negroes of Wat and
Eli-st Kentucky ever stood together
“or one common cause. an equal
opportunity for every child in

Among the outstanding bills
passed for educational purposes
was Bill No. 14, known as bhe
Equalization Bill, appropriating
$1,250,000“! each year to allow
the teachers to get a minimum
salary in each county of $75.00
per month. The teachers every—
where in the Commonwealth hail
the news of increase of salary
with exceeding great joy Your
