E. A., to increase the membership fee from one dollar to three dollars will be voted on at the coming convention. The fact that 15%i of those who have paid their fee (up to the time of going to press - 115 out of 770) have voluntarily paid the three dollar fee as sustaining members, suggests a general recognition that the amendment should be approved. The program of the Association merits the whole-hearted support of every teacher. Its cost of operation has increased as the costs of items essential to its operation have increased. There are many indications that our member- ship wants the program now under way to be further developed. This means increased expenditures-for research, lobbyists, dissemination of information, and particularly for developing the various departments. Our convention speakers now render double service - on public programs and at group sessions. Their contributions have been valuable. Plans for the future provide for presentation of public programs varied, cultural and practical in nature, and departmental programs guided by spe- cilalists in the respective fields. The K. N. E. A. has fewer potential members than its sister educational associations. Those like Virginia, with a membership of 5,000, and a mem- bership fee of $3.00; South Carolina, with a membership of 7,000 and a membership fee of $2.00, and Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, also with large teacher enrollments and fees not less than two dollars, have income of from $10,000 to $15,000 for the programs; some set an additional amount for sub- scription to the educational journal. Kentucky has fewer than 1400 teach- ers. The three dollar fee would give our association far less working capital than many associations have but enough to provide a strong program for our organization.

El------- U Representatives of eleven State Educational Associations meet at Lemoyne College, Memphis, Tennessee STATE EDUCATION ASSOCIATION OFFICIALS ORGANIZE A conference of State Education Association officials vas held at I Moyne College, Memiiphis, Tennessee, on Sund ay. [F ebrnarv 16, 1947. Mor- than thirty persoms, representing 11 states, attended. WVilliam fl. IPerry, se( retary, represented the i. N. E. A. The meeting wvas called to order by M!' J. 1B. Picott, secretary of tile Virginia Association for Education. Dr. Gcor74Q W. Gore, Jr.. Nashville, Tennessee. was elected tempnorary chairtman. Tie agenda included discussion of ( a ) integr ation of Negroes in tile Nation 4 Education Association, (b) Federal Aid to Education Legislation now pend- ing in the Congress at Washington, (c) the minimum $2,400 salary per teacher, (d) improvement of working relations as associations, (e) support- ing the American Teachers Association. The group went on record as recommending a new interpretation of the word THE in the N. E. A. constitution so as to include Negro state teachers organizations in the determination of state delegates for the N. E. A. delegate assembly. A committee composed of Mr. Picott, Mr. 0. B. Cobbins, of Mis- sippi, Mr. J. C. Parks, of Maryland, and Dr. Gore was appointed to confer with N. E. A. officials in Atlantic City during March. The group also went on record as recommending that state organizations endeavor to secure rep- resentation through the white associations and by means of the local asso- ciations. Mr. Perry was appointed chairman of a committee to draw up a statement of the philosophy of the group. It was moved that endorsement be given Senate Bill as now written with respect to Federal Aid and that our local organizations send telegrams to Congressmen, if possible send representatives to Washington, and actively publicize the bill in every practicable way. The principle of adequate .salaries was endorsed, and $2400.00 as a mini- mum yearly salary for teachers in all states agreed on. It was stated that the American Teachers Association should be more active with respect to public relations, and the following suggestions made: (a) employment of a full time public relations officer, (b) publishing the A. T. A. Bulletin regularly, and (c) the employment of a full time secretary. Dr. H. C. Trenholm, executive secretary of the A. T. A., was commended for the work he has done through that office. There was an exchange of ideas among representatives of the various state organizations, looking to closer cooperation and improve- ment of the programs within the several states, particularly with regard to publications and buildings. It was finally decided that the group should form a permanent organiza- tion as a part of the A. T. A. if possible, if not, as an independent organiza- tion. The name, 'Conference of State Educational Association Officials' was chosen. Mr. J. R. Picott, of Virginia, was elected permanent chairman, and Dr. G. W. Gore, Jr., of Tennessee, permanent secretary-treasurer. The newly elected secretary-treasurer was instructd to get out a quarterly news letter supplying information concerning activities in various states. A midsummer meeting will be held in August, in connection with the A. T. A.,, and a mid- winter meeting is scheduled for Louiiana, probably at Southern University, next February. REPORT ON ATLANTIC CITY CONFERENCE WITH N.E.A. EXECUTIVE SECRETARY Members of the Conference of State Teachers and Education Association Officials will recall that at its first meeting held in Memphis, Tennesseee, on February 16, it was unanimously decided that the matter of complete inte- gration in the National Education Association and other national activities and programs be pushed with all possible vigor. Following these instructions, a Committee (O. B. Cobbins, Jackson, Mississippi; G. W. Gore, Nashville, Tennessee; and J. Rupert Picott, Richmond, Virginia) met at the Liberty Hotel in Atlantic City on Tuesday, March 4, and made the proper contacts. 5 As a result, we wish to offer the following suggestions: 1. That every local, city or county group of at least 51 National Educa- tional Association members in all the states immediately organize themselves into a NEA Chapter. This chapter should proceed at once to apply for affiliation as a local group with the National Education Association. Write Mr. T. D. Martin, Director of Membership, Na- tional Education Association, 1201 - 16th Street, N. W., Washington 6, D. C., and announce your intentions to him. Such a local group, if it has 51 members is automatically entitled to one delegate at the NEA which will be held this vear in Cincinnati, Ohio, July 7-11. 2. Presidents and Executive Secretaries of State Associations should irn- mediately contact their various white state associations as has been done in Tennessee with the aim of having the two state associations in a particular state to share the delegate quota which the NEA assigns to a particular state. One delegate is allowed the state association for everv 500 NEA members a state. 3. Your officials will push with all possible vigor the request for further recognition and integration in the NEA and other national organiza- tions. LOUISVILLE TEACHER IN ORGAN RECITAL Mr. William R. King, Mus. B., Mus. M., University of Illinois, teacher at Madison Street Junior High School, Louisville, was greeted by a large and(l appreciative audience at his organ recital, given in Louisville Memorial Ati- ditorium on March 16. The program included numbers from Bach to Purcell and from SowerbU 6 to Mulet (from the early German school *of organ music to the modern French school). Recognized critics commented favorably on his perform- ance. Mr. King is a graduate of Central High School, Louisville, and was recently elected to membership in Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, honorary music fraternity, being one of its three colored members. LINCOLN INSTITUTE DEEDED TO THE STATE Lincoln Institute, founded in 1912 as a private high school and junior college, was formally deeded, on March 26, to the. State of Kentucky as A state high school and teacher training laboratory for Negroes. Built on land purchased with money contributed by the late Andrew Carnegie, the school was financed principally by endowments and private subscriptions. Since 1939, the state has contributed funds, in return for which practice teacher training was given. For the biennium 1946-47, $75,000 was provided an- nually by the state for the operation of Lincoln Institute as a state high school. Also, $100,000 was appropriated for rebuilding a dormitory de. stroyed by fire last year. Lincoln Institute is an outgrowth of Berea College, established in 1867, and attended by both and white and Negro students, but forced by the Day Law, passed in 1904 requiring segregeation of races in educational instiftu- tions, to release its Negro students. Nearly 2,000 Negro youth of high school age live in the 65 counties which Lincoln Institute serves as a State boarding high school. MRS. M. L. COPELAND PLANS RETIREMENT News comes that Mrs. M. L. Copeland, A. B., Kentucky State College, M. A., Columbia University, who has served Kentucky schools for forty-four years, and who is now Jeanes Supervisor, will retire on July 1. A life member of the K. N. E. A,. and the American Teachers Association, she has been very active in both organizations. During the fifteen years she has served, as chairman of the Rural Department of the former organization, its develop- ment and influence have been noteworthy. The Rural Department of the American Teachers Association likewise showed growth under her guidance. Mrs. Copeland has the distinction of having served in the Kentucky State Department of Education longer than any other colored person. As she goes to her home in Hopkinsville to enjoy a well earned rest, and share the companionship of Reverend Copeland, she may reflect on a work well done, and know that she has the respect and goodwill of her friends in education and in the state. Over the Editor's Desk * FEDERAL AID TO EDUCATION S472, a bill to authorize the appropriation of federal funds to assist the states and territories in financing a mininum foundation program of public elementary and secondary education and to assist in reducing the educational in-equalities in the nation, was introduced in the Senate on January 31, 1947. S472 is supported by the National Education Association. PROVISIONS Chief provisions of the bill include: (1) Federal aid to assist the states, where needed, to finance a $40-floor- program per pupil in average daily attendance, excluding expenditures for interest, capital outlay, and debt retirement. (2) Distribution of funds to the states in direct proportion to need a-ad effort, and in inverse proportion to financial ability. (3) Th ebill authorized $150,000,000 the first year, $200,000,000 the sec- ond, and thereafter $250,000,000 per year. The number of states eligible for benefits will vary as economic conditions change. (4) Each minority racial group in each state is assured a proportion of federal funds in an amount not less than the population ratio each minority racial group in the state bears to the state's total population. The $40-floor-program applies uniformly. (5) The bill safeguards state educational controls in three ways: (a) It makes no transfer of state educational controls to federal gov- ernment. (b) It specifically and clearly prohibits the exercise of educational controls by any federal agency, officer, or other representative. (c) It prohibits any agreement between any state and federal officials which would in effect shift any measure of educational control whatsoever from the states to federal government. (6) Aid authorized by the act must supplement and not substitute for state and local school dollars. (7) Only those schools which are supported within a state by state and local taxes can benefit under the act. A.T.A. MEMBERSHIP SOUGHT Mr. Theodore R. Dailey, Head of the Department of Education at Ken- tucky State College, has been appointed as the representative of the American Teachers Association in Kentucky, to secure members for that organization, the national association of colored teachers. 8 The annual membership fee is only $1.00.

HORTON Principal, Colored Department, Kentucky School for the Blind And God said, let there be light: and there was light. Genesis: 1-3 The problems of the VISUALLY HANDICAPPED child are many and complex, and the dominant thought in my mind at the present, is whether or not I can find adequate words in my meagre vocabulary to bring the prob- lems and struggles of the visually handicapped child into the homes and hearts of the Negro citizens of the State of Kentucky. In the first place, the visually handicapped are a very small minority' group in every state and they are lost in the large groups, for which the major part of the welfare programs are planned. The most difficult group to deal with will usually be neglected until last and often forgotten. This is the plight of the visually handicapped children of our state. It is true that the present appropriations are inadequate to provide for a full and extended program, but this need is dwarfed by the need of* genuine interest on the part of all persons who are interested in educationl opportunities for all, and the failure to use their influence and knowledge to aid in screening the children in our school and communities, so as, to place them in the educa- tional environment suited to their needs. The Colored Department of the Kentucky School for the Blind was es- tablished in 1884, and since that time it has been primarily supported by the state. It is interesting to observe that this institution has brought into useful employment a number of blind persons who formerly were thought to be unemployable. The success that has been achieved by the few pupils who have been enrolled in the Kentucky School for the Blind throughout the years should have served as a challenge and incentive to others, but despite this 10 commendable service we have allowed ourselves to become short-sighted to such an extent that our institution for the visually handicapped has failed to keep abreast with the many social and economical changes throughout the years, and consequently we find that the institution has retrogressed'to an alarming stage, with a present enrollment of eleven (11) pupils. This small enrollment can largely be traced to the existence of the following conditions: (1) failure to inform the public of the existence of a state institution, (2) the lack of contact with other educational institutions and their leaders, (3) the failure to acquaint the public with the purposes and aims of the institution, and (4) the lack of a unified and effective effort on the part of our workers. It is difficult to draw a distinct line of demarcation between the two groups of visually handicapped children who require the type of education provided in the schools for the blind, and those who can progress with the aid of special equipment such as is provided in classes for particularly seeing children. In the first group must be included not only those totally blind but those having such exceedingly low vision that they must be considered educationally blind and who, although able to see to a limited extend must use their sense of truth rather than that of sight as the chief avenue of educa- tional approach to the brain. Pages could be written in regard to our problems and needs, but these are surpassed by the need of a representative enrollment, which means that a unified effort must be made to find the children of school age who are quali- fied for enrollment and to encourage their parents to place them in the insti- tution that has been established to give them the educational opportunities and training that they deserve. There is a great need for sincere and genuine interest on the part of our educational, civic, and social leaders throughout the State of Kentucky. Without this interest our noble, but feeble efforts to provide adequate educational opportunities and economical independence for the visuallly handicapped children of this state will be sadly lacking in force and results. It grieves me no little to labor under the knowledge, that there are par- ents of visually handicapped children in this state who through the lack of understanding or interest are permitting their child or children to grow up to lead a life of idleness, despondencoy, and dependency; to loiter on the community streets and beside theatre ticket booths with a cup in their hands, and the familiar and monotonous cry on their lips, "Help the Blind." It ap- pears to me that a word of encouragement and a few moments of our time to direct the attention of the parents of visually handicapped children toward the institution that has been established, and equipped with special facilities and trained teachers, to help them to become useful and economically inde- pendent in the society in which they live, is worth far more to the child, the race, and the nation than an occasional nickel or dime in a tin cup. Due to the fact that there are no funds available to employe a Special So- cial Worker for the Blind and the scarcity of clinics to provide free medical eaminaxtions and treatments for the prevention of blindness, I hereby, make an appeal that some person or organization in each area in the state, particii- larly in smaller cities and communities take steps to develop a community interest in the visually handicapped. Such organizations must present to the public, to the best of their knowledge the importance of taking advantage of the opportunities placed at their disposal for the training and education of 11 the visually handicapped child, so that the public can intelligently understand and aid the program. The obstacles that have hindered the development of a representative en- rollment are numerous, but there are two which I consider the most prom- inent, namely, the protective parental attitude of the parents and their reluct- ance to give their consent to place their child in an institution far from their immediate locality and the fact that some parents are under the im- pression if their child enters the school for the blind, the A. N. B. (Aid for the Needy Blind) will discontinue its welfare compensation. Please permit me to pass on to those concerned, the information that welfare compensation for the blind is based primarily upon two factors: (1) the degree of vision, and (2) the financial needs of the family. I would also like to call your attention to the fact that any child in the State of Kentucky whose sight is so impaired that he or she is unable to be educated in the public schools, within the ages of five and eighteen years, may be admitted to the Kentucky School for the Blind, provided such child is in good health and of sound mind. There is no charge for tution, board, laundry, books, or medical attention, but parents are expected to provide clothing and to pay for or provide transportation to and from school. The school session begins the second week of September and closes the second week of June. The children return to their homes for all holidays and sum- mer vacations. The students are offered vocational and musical training along with their academic courses. For further information write to the Principal of the Kentucky School for the Blind, Colored Department, 260 Haldeman Avenue, Louisville 6, Ky. K.S.C. CONDUCTS BUSINESS COURSE SURVEY Business courses offered in Kentucky Negro high schools is the subject of a survey being conducted by Mr. James L. Stuart of the Kentucky State College Department of Business Administration under the sponsorship of the Council on Special Studies at the college. Mr. Stuart is attempting to determine the types of courses offered, the preparation and number of teachers involved, the equipment available, and the future plans of the various schools in this field. In addition to those strictly vocational courses preparatory to a career in business, the survey is also interesting itself in such general courses or units of study as would as- sist low-income Negroes in the most economical use of their wages. High school principals to whom the questionnaires have been send are playing a vital role in assisting Mr. Stuart in obtaining complete coverage of the Negro schools. Traditionally a low-income group the Negro can actually increase the value of his income by its wise use, Mr. Stuart maintains. The current study is an attempt to determine what the high schools are doing and can do to meet this need. "Increase the economic literacy of the Negro" is the basic long term goal toward which this survey is but a first step. Mr. Stuart is a graduate of Hampton Institute and has received his masters degree from Boston University. 12 Who's Who On the Convention Program DR. REID E. JACKSON MR. CLIFFORD J.
