cannot in good conscience vote for an apprupr'iation of $3,000,000.00

interest to the component departments, tihen sayamte into “depart-
mental conferences," which already exist, for consideration and ap-

Our {mm Dover bears the pimure of H C Russell, president of
West Kentucky State Vocational Training School, arc :Patdlucah, Who
ranks high amxmg Kentucky’s educational and fraternal leaders. Mt.
Ewell returned this year ‘10 the post at the West Kentucky Insfitu-
him: with a clear understanding of the need of vocational training by
colored youth in the state, and with a program for hhe development
ofithe schooltomeatthenBEd.

Always eml'xusiam and earnest, he entered upon his present rte-
sponeflbility with a wide backgriound pf experience in the edumational
field and personal knowledge of the communities his school serves.
Born in Bloomfield, Kentucky, and trained in its Mal school,
graduated with the Mdhelor’s degree {mm Simmons University, and
later from the University of Cincinnati with the (Master’s degree in
Edmaminn, mugwed by study at the University at Chicago, he gained
experience in rum], mibau, denominational and college settings.

Founwing a {brief period as teacher at Blomnfleld, he was a
memlber of the fiaculty of the kaifiort State Nor-mall, then of the
Louisville Nomal School, mmmmg to the training of many who
are now Kentucky's nutstamiimg teachers. Later he served as dean of
Kentucky State college and as president of West Kentucky State
Vocatimnal Training School, leaving the latter position t0 accept a
position with the U. 5. Office (If Education as specialist in Negro
Education. Mr. Ewell Iwas also for several years the ddredwr of
Negro Afiafia‘s fat the National Youth Administmhiqn in Kentucky
and seemed an increase in vocational opportunities for colored youth
as well as a familiarity with their eccnomix: amd vocational status.

He was let many years the state grand secretary, and later the
mahinnal head of the United Brothers of Friendship. In performing
his lodge and N. Y. A. duties, he has prdbmbly covered the state, [by
travel, more thoroughly than any other member at the K. N E. A.
He knows every crossmad, good stepping place, and restaurant in
Kentunlw. During the ‘iboom period" follawing World War I, be en-
tered the business field as 3555th secretary of the Domestic {Life
Insurance Company and as president of the Standard Building and
Loan Association, but 'lewened this interest in this field to mum: to
his first love, edimafinn. 'Frmn 1M5 to 18212 he served as president of
the K. N. E. A., and ddreded the expansion of its program and in-
crease in its numbers.

President Russell hm resumed h'E position at West Kmtunfliy
with vpfimism as to the part «the school may play in the training at
youth to meet the demands of a war-time and poet-«war econmny. Im-
dusk-lad courss for [both boys and fills are being reorganized;
courses in shoe repain'mg and poultry raising have Ybeen added. Irm-
mediaately upon resuming office, President Russell saw to fine rehabil-


 imam of the physical plant, and recently asked the legislature to
amnapfla-te sufiiuient money to construct and rum Mediately a
boys dormitory to meet present needs, and to house the anticipated
Wong of returned saldiers who will. the aSSigned for training and re—
habilitation. He favors operation of the proposed lug); school state
boarding sex-vine, but only as a supplement to the major work of the
mhaol, industrial and vocational training, planned. to accomplish
“the threefold task of training the hands and heads of Negro youth
for skilled and sermiskilled work; providing better workers in domes-
tic and personal service companions and improving the home liie cl
the Negro family.”

The K. N. E. A. wishes President Russell success in the adminis-
tration of the program of the school

H. E. Goodloe

The election of state ofificia-ls to serve the people of the state of
Kentucky for the next four years is new history. Even though we re»
sults might have been surprising to a great many citizens, it can be
mummy said, “The people have spoken.”

The Kentucky Negro Education Association is naturally interest-
ad, and sincerely wishes the victorious party mum success in its at»
tempt to give me citizens of Kentucky a government of the people,
by the people and 1102‘ Lhe people. While the K. N. E. A. is non-parti-
san, it can look .forwtard to an improved program of education be-
cause the Governor and Superintendent of Public Instruction have
endorsed the Legislative Report of rune K. N. E. A. The outlook is
very bright (or an improved program oi education, administered in
a democratic rway.

(Elie Board of Directors of the Kentucky Negro Education Associa-
tion and every Negro teacher in the Slate of Kentucky is hoping and
praying tho/t the present administration wiLL immediawely begin to
right many of the injustices that. have been. done Negro teachers over
a long period of years by doing the following:

1. Equalizing teachers‘ saJJar'lES. (Th/ls has been named first be-
cause it will meet a larger group lthan any outer problem that is
now ixwolved).

2. improve the high school service by oarry'mg out the general
provisiom as laid down in the legslnlti've report unanimously adopt»
ed at the Planning Conference in April.

3. Guise the standard 01 Kemucky State College to the equal of
other state institutions of higher learning.

4. Granting minority representation in the Department of Educa-
tion as outlined in the legislative report.

 5. Handling the affairs of our state secondary schools and Ken-
’Luluky state College in such way that the businefi will be professional
and above the level of petty politics. In short, like K. N. E. A. sincere-
ly quumhs that the same standands used Ain the afiairs of our leading
white institutions be applied to our State College and. stats secondaxy

In conclusion, it seems that “A New World 1.5 a coming for Ne—
groes in Kentucky." May the Negro teachers realize that a great re
sponsibility rests upon their shoulders, and the time is at hand to
unite I11heir forces in trying to bring our legislative program to a suc-
cessflul conclusion.

For the support of Kenmcky State College, owt-of—etate tuition
under the AndersonMayer Am, and the West Kentucky Vocaiianal
Training School, a betel of $624,243.00 was requested "by Negro sdhmd
heads to the Legislative Council. When the Governm‘s proposed
budget was summed, only the pinifiufl and inadequate sum of. $197,.
000.00 was recommended to prowlde for hisgflmr and vocational edu-
cation for Negroes tar the entire state. “From my knowledge at the
condlinxiom a! higher and vamafion‘al ed/neam'on for Negma in Ken—
tucky,” he cmtinmed, “some real tangible evidence of larger support
must come forward." Pmctically all of the surrounding states which
3pm a separate pragxmn of Negro higher education have been
and are MW spending more to this and than Kentucky. The list in-
cludes West Virginia, Ohio and Tennessee.

Eur all at the state supported institutions for white peaple in
Kemmzky, where are special taxes from which funds are derived
monthly, “when and as collected," this, in addition to the fairly de-
cent state amfialfions which halve been granted by the Legisla‘
turre, while the usual apprapn'mions granted for Negro higher and
VOEB’ll‘Dflafl edmcarfiom are not enough to operate a first alas stock or
dairy £51m. The mstimtiom for Negroes do not share in these special
dams and, therefore, are compelled to rely upon funds provided by
the Legislature. However, when the time comes to apprapq‘iete funds
r00: Negro etfimafian the time—worm cry is “that We don‘t halve the
money." H any state can appropriate $3,000,000.00 £01 teanhem’ sala-
ries of which the Negro teachers in the and will obtain only a meager
part, then it certainly can appropriate mare than $40,000.00 for the
aperamion of West Kentuxiky Vocational School for Negroes, at Pa-
duealh or the 8mm of $150,000!!!) for the operation of Kentucky Stale
College at Frankfort.

Mr. Anderson stated “there are only 1465 Negro teacheus in Ken-
mnky While {here are over 20,000 White 1584511925; the $3,000,000 fig-
ure looks attractive but when you abserve flhe percentage its nothing
to he slammed album." In commenting further be stated “My vote on
the Teadhers’ Bill is largely one of protest It is not um I wish to
deny hex-refills to elementary and secondary school teachers, but I
do want to stress the fact that higher and vocational education fur
Nagm boys and girls mum. not sway any further, and in some Way
the Race must ’be granted larger additional direct appropriations."
'E‘ot state suppm'ted colleges for white pwple (If similar size enmllr
merit, the Legislature has always seen fit to grant langer individuél
