 Greetings from the President

Lexington, Kentucky
October 1, 1938
My dear Co-workers and Fellow

I wish to extend greetings to
each of you and sincerely hope
that you will have the most suitL
oessful year in your teaching
careers. During the past vaca-
tion a few happenings of educa-
tional significance have taken
place and merit mention.

The first of these is the an-
nual meeting of the National
Education Association which was
held in New York City during
June. The N. E. A. this year reg-
istered more than 200,000 teach-
ers and leaders in education and
featured sectional meetings in
about 125 departments and spe-
cial conferences. The N. E. A.
took a militant stand for the
academic freedom of the teacher
and also its correlate, the need
for divorcing politics from edu-
cational policy. A second matter
stressed was the urgent need of
federal aid for our public edIICa-
tion and the necessity of continu.
ing the sponsorship of such leg-
islation in the next congress.

Another dbjective which the N.
E. A. set forth was the elimina-
tion of differentials in salaries
based on sex. This made me
realize the necessity of colored
teachers having greater repre-
sentation in the Delegate As»
sembly. They could do much to
include in such a program the
elimination of salary differentials
due to race. Three cities had
Negro representatives in the
Delegate Assembly. These were
Kansas City, Kansas, Lexington,


Kentucky, and Washington, D
C. Dl'. Garnett Wilkerson Of
Washington, D. C. made a worth-
while contribution in the inter-
ests of his race before the Dele-
gate Assembly. We must-con-
tinue our efforts to further rep-
resent our minority group in
this great organization.

On the same day that the N.
E. A. opened the Negroes of
America and the entire popula-
tion lost one of its leading edu-
cators and writers in the person
of- Dr. James Weldon Johnson.
His life is an inspiration to
America—this man, a poet, dip-
lomat, philosopher, teacher and
social engineer. William A.
Avery has given a biographit
sketch of his life in the Septem-
her 3 issue of “School and So-
ciety" which I commend to you
for your reading and our school

In the latter part of July, the
American Teachers‘ Association
now termed the A. T. A., and
which organi ion supplants the
National Association of Teachers
in Colored Schools met at Tuske-
gee. This organization gives
special attention to the needs in
the education of colored chil-
dren. One happening was an
agreement to recognize the Na-
tional Educational Outlook as
the official organ of the A. T. A.
and the discontinuance of the
Bulletin. A membership fee of
31.50 now pays a one dollar an-
nual subscription to the “Educa-
tional Outlook" and gives annual
membership dues in the A. T. A.
1 wish to commend this going
and growing publication to Ken—
tucky teachers. The new presi‘
dent, Can-ington Davis of Balti-


 more, is a wide awake. enthusias
tic leader worthy of our confi—
dence and support. I solicit your
renewed interest in me A. T. A.
and hope that you will support it
just as you do the K. N. E. A.
Following my return from
Tuskegee, your president made
a short good will tour in the in-
terest of the K. N. E. A. The
places included were Hopkins-
ville, Henderson, Paduoah, May-
field, and Owenshorn, outstanding
cities in the western section of
our state. On this tour a one-
hundxed per cent enrollment for
the K. N. E. A. convention of
April 1939 was urged and CO-
operation sought in the activities
of the K. N. E. A. for 193839.
During the tour my thoughts
turned to the havoc wrought by
the flood of 1937 and then the
eduwtlonal unrest of 1938 be-
cause of the merger of W. K.
I. C. and K. S. I. C. Although
somewhat depressed by the un-
certain destiny of the school at
Paducah, the people of the West
are still hopeful. They hope that
the new school will not only sat~
lsfy a long waited need along the
lines of trade and industrial edu-
cation but will also have junior
college offerings so that their
graduates can qualify for voca—
tional aflustment or teaching and
for that citizenship which natur-
ally follows a larger educational
background. We are troubled to
note that one of our great edu-
cational pioneexs has been lost in
this educational juggle known as
the “Merger.” This happens to
be in opposition to what was
promised should the merger go
through—namely that all of the
employees of the state would be
given work. If this is an ex-
pression of reprisal ‘Ior any

stands taken relative to the
“Merger," it not only is tinged
with educational tyranny but is
a big step in throwing our state
schools back into politics. It is
hoped that the state will carry
out its promises to give us an
“A" college at Frankfort and
make appropriations large enough
to carry out such a program.

During the. past summer there
have been several happenings
that have affected our school
personnel. The causes for them
range tram the tricky arrow of
Cupid and mandatory retirement
laws to “The Reaper" who blind—
ly cuts down human grain of all
ages. Mrs. M. M. Elliott of Har-
rodsburg, long a successful prin-
cipal married and retired. Prof.
J. L. Bean, for about twenty
years the principal of the Sim-
mons Street School at Versailles
and for many years a K. N. E.
A. director passed away after a
short illness during the vacation
of 1938. Only last year we lost
other principals of long and et-
fic’lent service, Prof. W. L. Buman
of Bardstown and Dr. Wm. Tar-
diff of Stanford. There also
passed away Miss Nannie Hardy.
for many years a teacher in the
Carver Elementary School of

At Lexington due to retirement
regulations. the writer was auto-
matically retired with honor and
placed on the pension List. At
this time I wish to express grati-
tude to Lexington citizens. the
Dunbar High School faculty and
students, and to my many
friends throughout the State for
their expressions and testimonials
in the forms of letters, original
poems, and concrete ponder—
ables whose use and beauty


 are constant reminders of the
high esteem in which my feeble
efforts have been evaluated.

Prof. P. L. Guthrie, last year
the principal at Richmond, was
elected to the prlnclpalship of
Dunbar High School. He has al-
ready made the beginning of
what I trust will be a long happy
administration crowned with suc-

My closlng word is to say a
word of commendation in hehali
of our efficient secretary who has
already begun to show that he
is on the job by getting ready the
educational snap shots that are
sent out under the caption of
“K. N. E. A. Newsettes."

Yours very cordially,
President of K. Ni E. Al

Editorial Comment



In a separate article titled “Goals in the Education of the Colored
Child," there have been set forth some worthy objectives for teaching
for the year 193939. No arguing is necessary to Kentucky teachers
to have them realize that thereare problems peculiar in the educa-
tion of the colored child and that when a colored student faces life’s
situations he meets opposition and barriers that are discouraging to
him unless he is prepared in advance to know how to overcome these
situations. It is hoped that teachers in Kentucky will study these
problems with the idea of putting them into practice. The future of
_the colored race lies largely in the hands of its teachers and min-
isters. It is up to them to give that sort of guidance that will aid
in meeting the problems peculiar to a minority race in America.
While we are teaching our prescribed courses of study, let us seek
to engage in those activities that will lead to the attainment of the
goals set forth elsewhere in this Journal.

Another activity of the K. N. E. A. will be the formation of a
salary equalization committee. President Fouse is interested in the
equalization of salaries and the enactment of all phases of the
school code as it is written. The K. N. E. A. will lend its ettons to
this committee. which is to undertake this noteworthy activity of
the K. N. E. A. Attention is called to the report of the Research
Committee, and a letter from its chairman, Dr. G. D. Wilson, relative
to the salary situation for colored teachers in Kentucky.

The K. N. E. A. will feature its annual Spelling Bee and shortly
the secretary4reasurer will send from his office announcements and
a suggested word list for the 1938-39 Spelling Bee, the finals of which
will be held in Louisville on Friday, April 14, 1939. The plan of 1938
will be the one used again this year.

Mention will be made several places in the Journal of the forma-
tion of a Youth Council. This will be a new feature of the K. N. E. A.
and already plans are being made for the first meeting of this youth
council at the 1939 convention. It is felt that the youth of. our state
have problems and face situations in which the K. N. E. A. can be
of special help to them.

The K. N. E. A. will use its influence to have our state college
at Frankfort made an "A" class school. We shall also use our in»
fluence to push forward the program of vocational training to be
offered at West Kentucky Vocational School. We need both types
of schools and the K. N. E. A. will work for the general interest of
all the children in all parts of the state.

. There will be three issues of the K. N. E. A. Journal and an at»
tempt will be made to keep the Journal at the same high level as


 heretofore. The K. N. E. A. Journal is a leader in size and quality
among other educational journals published by colored teachers’

The K. N. E. A. will continue to work with the National Educa-
tion Association in its attempt to have a Federal enactment which
will give help to the southern states. We shall continue to insist
that any appropriations which are to be made will be made with the
idea that they are to give colored children their share of the funds.
We shall take the point of View that such provisions should be
Written into the law Whenever it is passed.

The activities suggested should receive the cooperation of all
members of the K. N. E. A. and new teachers in the profession.

We welcome all new teachers into the profession and extend
to these and others who worked heretofore, greetings and best wishes
for a successful school year during 1938- 39.


The secretary-treasurer of the N. E. A. brought to the atten<
tion of the K.N.E.A. at me1938 Business sessionY a report in which
he showed that the K. N. E. A. would have a deficit yearly if it were
not for the annual pageant given by the Louisville public school chil-
dren. The requests of various departments have grown to the ex-
tent that the K. N. E. A. should either raise its membership fee or
have its expenses conform to its income. Since the constitution does
not permit the membership fee to be raised as it is now written, it
seems desirable that we follow a budget so as to live within the
estimated income. This suggested budget is found elsewhere in this
publication and will be acted upon officially by the Board of Di-
rectors with any necessary revision.

0n the outside of this Journal will be found a picture of the
Perry A. Cline High School at Pikeville, Kentucky. This is a school
of modern design and which has become the center of one of our
mountain communities At the 1938 convention of the K. N. E. A., the
principal of this school, Mr. W. R. Cummings, received the Lincoln
Institute Key Award for oumtanding services in education. Through
his very fine work his school has become an accredited school and
its community services have become outstanding in Kentucky. The
Parent-Teacher Association of this school has been very active and
will entertain the state annual convention of the colored P. T. A

in Kentucky.



As one observes the conduct of our younger people and even
older ones, there can be no question as to their many personality
deficiencies. For example, many of our children do not know how
to behave in a gathering, particularly a moving picture show. They
laugh at the wrong time and many of them are uncouth in general.

 This is a task for our teachers. Let us teach them how to be fit
members of an audience.

Our children learn English in school, but they are very careless
in using it. Few of them take the pains to pronounce words fluent-
ly and to speak in correct sentences Teachers should emphasize
proper enunciation and produce children who will exhibit training
through the type of English which they use. This is another task
for teachers.

One of the common habits of our children is the use of a word
which sounds like “Negro” among themselves. They object strenuA
ousiy when a member of the white race uses this word, and yet they
are careless in using it themselves. Let us teach them to remain
from the use of this objectionable word. The editor of the K. N.
E. A. Journal wonders if the word “colored” is not more fitting to
our group in America. It appears that the white people who use the
word “colored" do so with a feeling of a bit more respect. Certainly
the usage of a word which is obnoxious to us and which is closely
akin in its pronunciation to the Word “Negro” should be eliminated
from the vocabularies of our children, and this is suggested as a ma-

jor task for teachers.
s u n c


At the 1938 convention of the K. N. E A., three amendments
were added to the constitun‘on. Elsewhere in this issue of the Jour-
nal there appears a copy of our constitution revised to date. Mem-
bers of the K. N. E Afare urged to read this constitution and to
note in particular the recent amendments to it. One amendment is
to recognize as permanent members of the K. N. E. A., those teachers
who have retired with honor, after giving many years of service.
Another amendment is to clarify the duties of the Board of Directors
of the K. N, E. A. Another amendment permits persons other than
teachers who are interested in the education of colored children to
be members of the Legislative Committee, These amendments re-
ceived the necessary vote at the 1938 convention and now make a
pan of the constitution.


The secretary of the K. N E A. would like to commend the
superintendents of Kentucky for their interest in the Kentucky Negro
Education Association. As one may note in the Honor Roll pub-
lished herein that many superintendents have sent in the enrollment
fees of their colored teachers to the K. N. E A. secretary just as
they have sent in the fees of their white teachers to the secretary
of the K. E A. Each year the number of superintendents who show
an interest in the K. N. E. A increases. It is hoped that the super-
intendents will mention enrollment in the K. N. E. A. when they ad-
dress their colored teachers. Some superintendents have some col-
ored teacher or principal to see that the fees are collected and sent
to the K. N. E. A. Secretary. Many! superintendents look forward to
receiving their honor roll for the 100 per cent enrollment of colored
teachers in the K. N. E. A,

 Minutes of the 1938 General Session of the
K. N. E. A.

Sixty-sewnd Annual Convention of K. N. E. A, Louisville, Ky.
Apt“ 1846, 1938.

Wednesday, April 13, 1988
8:15 P. M.

The Kentucky Negro Educa-
tion Association held its sixty»
second annual session in LoulsF
ville on April 13-16, 1938. This
session was opened with H. E.
Goodloe, first vioepresident of
the K. N. E. A. presiding, and
past presidents seated on the
rostrum. After appropriate music
by the Central High School Glee
Club under the direction of Miss
Nannie G. Board and the invoca-
tion by Reverend G. H. Jenkins,
pastorvof Quinn Chapel Church,
a brief welcome was given by C.
M. H. Morton, president 01' the
Louisville Association of Teach-
ers in Colored Schools. Mrs. Pearl
M. Patton, principal of the Rosen-
wald High School, Madisonvilie,
made the response to the wel-
come address.

The first main address of the
evening was that of W. H. Fouse,
President of the K. N. E. A. Pres.
ident Fouse summarized the
achievements of his administra»
titan, pointing out the legislation
that had been enacted which af-
fected Negro children, the activi-
ties of the K. N. E. A. relative to
the merger of our tWo state cul-
leges, and his interest in desire
ing the colored teachers in Ken—
tucky to have representation in
the National Education Associa»
tion. He also mentioned the K.
N. E. A.’s cooperation with the
K. E. A. for the enactment of a
teacher retirement plan in Ken-
tucky. President Fouse also sug-
gested that there be an effort
made to have retired teachers


given a pension by the state.

The second main address of the
evening was given by I. J. K.
Wells, Supervisor of Colored
Schools of West Virginia. Mr.
Wells spoke on the topic, "Im-
proving the Economic Status of
the Negro by Utilizing Our Pur-
chasing Power." Mr. Wells
stressed the idea of buying con-.-
moditia from only those manu-
facturers that employed Negip
labor and that we plan more
largely to urge our youth to en»
ter business pursuits. Mr. Wells
was introduced by President R.
B. Atwood of Kentucky State Col—

The final feature of this ses
sion was the awarding of a
trophy to Miss l... V. Ranels, as-
sistant secretary of the K. N. E.
A., in recognition of her service
for the fifteen year period from
1922 to 1937. The presentation
was made with appropriate re-
marks by President H. C. Rus-
sell, president of the West Ken-
tucky Industrial College.

Thursday, April 14, 1938
9:00 A. M.

The Second General Session of
the K. N. E. A. was opened by
the singing of the Negro Nation-
al Anthem led by Mrs. Blanche
Elliott, Greenville, and the invo-
ution by Reverend W. Augustus
Jones, pastor of the Fifth Street
Baptist Church, Louisville. The
report of the Necrology Commit-
tee was made. Services in re-
membrance of deceased members
of the K. N. E. A. were then con-
ducted by Reverend W. P. Ofiutt,
pastor of the Calvary Baptist

 Church, Louisville. Others who
participated in the exercises were
Reverend R. E. Pierson, pastor
of the Christian Church and Mix
Carl M. Burnside who called the
roll of the deceased members.

The Legislative Committee oi
the K. N. E. A. then reported its
activities through its chairman,
Prof. A. E. Meyzeek, Louisville.
Prof. Meyzeek mentioned the
fact that the K. N. E. A. Legisla-
tive Committee had worked in
Such a Way as to help bring about
the retention of the West Ken»
tucky Industrial College as a
vocational school, rather than
have it discontinued entirely.
The K. N. E. A. Legislative Com-
mittee also reported that it help-
ed to have the separate bus bill
tabled at the 1938 general as~
sembly. He stated that the Leg-
islative Committee had had sev-
eral meetings and had been active
in the support of measures that
had improved the status of the
Negro child and on the alert to
keep from passing any bills that
would affect the Negro youth in
an undesirable manner.

The secretarytreasurer, Atwood
S. Wilson, then made his finan—
cial report to the general asso«
ciation. Mimeographed copies
of the report were distributed
among the audience. Various
items in the receipts and expendi
turcs were explained for the in-
formation of those assembled.
The secretary»treasurer’s report
will appear in the October.No-
vember issue of the 1938 K. N.
E. A. Journal. The secretary
pointed out that the income of
the organization was greatly in-
creased through an annual pag-
eant given by the Louisville pub-
lic schools. He pointed out that
he used much energy in trying to
direct these pageants and urged


that the K. N. E. A. set up a
budget so as to operate on the
enrollment tees rather than de~
pend on the revenue from an en-
tertainment which is approxi»
mately the balance in the treas-
ury annually.

The Auditing Committee then
reported through its chairman,
F. L. Guthrie, Richmond. The
Auditing Committee reported that
the books of the secretary»treas-
urer were carefully audited and
that his records were well kept
and one hundred per cent ac-

The Resolutions Committee
then reported through its chair.
man, Professor S. L. Barker of
Owensboro. These resolutions ap-
pear in the October-November is~
sue of the 1938 K. N. E. A. Jour-
nal. By vote of the association
these resolutions were adopted
after its findings during the con-

Mr. Roy Chummelly, superin.
tendent of the Nursery School
and Adult Education was then
presented by Mr. Lyle Hawkins,
supervisor of the WA schools
for Negroes in Jefferson County.
Mr. Chummeny fittingly intro-
duced Senator M. M. Logan, a
guest speaker on this program.

The main address of the morn-
ing was that given by Dr. Zenos
E. Scott, superintendent of the
Louisville public schools. Dr.
Scott was fittingly introduced by
W. H. Perry, Jr, principal of
Madison Junior High Schooll Dr.
Scott told. the K. N. E. A. that
“Constant training in the right
attitude toward life itself, and the
right moral action in the dis-
charge of common duties, con-
stitute a real part of education."

"Mere training and experience
will not produce the best type

 of citizenship," Dr. Scott said.
“The keenest intelligence does
not necessarily guarantee the
highest type at life. Intelligence
itself must be guided.

“Public education undertakes
no less program than this—that
children learn how to serve first
themselves, then others, and in
that unselfish servioe they begin
that training which later in life
means honesty of purpose in
business, courage in the dis-
charge of moral obligations, un—
stinted endeavor in voting right
and acting right on questions of

Dr. Scott stressed re-study of
the large aims of education, in.
cluding “training for worthy
citizenship, health, 'the right
habit formation and the correct
use of leisure time.” He said it
is the duty of schools to train
'children to want to do right.

After the address of Dr. Scott,
the report of the Nominating
Committee was read. The com-
mittee recommended that the of-
ficers be elected as listed in the
October-November issue of the
1933 K. N. is. A. Journal, exoept
in the case of the members of
the Board of Directors. The
secretary-treasurer was empow‘
ered to cast one ballot to offi-
cially elect these officers. Four
members were nominated for the
Board of Directors for balloting
