Ball, Middlesboro--Upper Cumberland District Association 2 THE 1948 CONVENTION PROGRAM The date of the next annual convention of our association is rapidly approaching. Provision has been made for inspirational speakers for the public gatherings, and for helpful specialists in the departmental groups. In planning this year's program, account has been taken of a number of helpful suggestions made by district presidents in their meetings with the Board of Directors. An encouraging element in connection with the organization of the convention program has been the enthusiasm and interest many depart- ments have shown. From some sections of the state have come indica- tions that many teachers, heretofore inactive in conventions, wish to participate in this year's activities. Departmental programs are being planned to the end that through them, every teacher of the state may have ample opportunity for profitable experiences. THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS Some persons think of the K. N. E. A. only in terms of the April meeting. Others know that the work of the organization is a year round task, guided by the directors. This group has met as frequently each year as circumstances warranted-sometimes during the vacation period, even during the Christmas holiday season when advisable. From time to time they have included in their councils the presi- dents of district associations in order that the problems of the several areas of the state might be known and provided for. At times the presi- dents of the state schools have met with the directors, to plan how the interests of the schools might be advanced through the efforts of the association.. The conferences have always led to appropriate action. Sometimes the actions, to be effective, could not be publicized. Fore- most on the agenda of the officers has always been accomplishment, to the greatest degree possible, of the recommendations of the legislative committee. This is in itself a major task. The directors merit the gratitude of the membership for their earnest, consistent efforts to direct wisely the affairs of the association. DEPARTMENTAL MEETINGS STRESSED No pains have been spared to arrange strong programs for the public and departmental meetings of the Association. Each speaker on a public program has been carefully selected to meet the tastes of those who wish careful thought masterfully presented. Attention should be called to the fact that, while the public sessions are planned to be in- spirational, valuable experiences should be gained through the depart- mental meetings. Their programs have been planned by the respective departmental chairmen. A limited amount of money has been made available by the directors for a speaker for each department; perhaps the amount should be increased for those having a year-round program. The officers of the Association wish to encourage every teacher to take an active part in the department of her interest. Meetings have been scheduled at four main times during the convention, thus making it possible for members to visit groups other than their own. 3 Announcements The Kentucky Negro Education Association will meet in Louisville, Wednesday, April 14, through Friday, April 16,1948. Day-time sessions will be held at the Madison Street Junior High School building, 18th and Madison Streets. Lunches will be served in the school cafeteria. Evening sessions will be held at Quinn Chapel A. M. E. Church, 912 West Chestnut Street. The Louisville Public Schools will present an art exhibit, featuring work done during the year as regular class work. Art work from other schools will also be welcomed. Exhibits from other departments, like- wise, have been invited. Mrs. Hattie Figg Jackson is chairman of the art department of the Association. ANNUAL MUSICALE The annual musicale will be held Wednesday evening, April 14, instead of on the last night of the convention, as heretofore. This arrangement will permit out-of-town teachers to hear the principal addresses on Thursday and Friday nights of convention week. It is hoped the musicale, through its popularity, will attract teachers to Louisville for the Wednesday night program. This year's musicale will feature a 200 voice all-state chorus, with participants from Kentucky State College, Louisville Municipal College, Central High School, Louisville; Rosenwald High School, Franklin; Dunbar High School, Lexington; Lincoln Institute; Durham High School, Campbellsville; Douglas High School, Lexington; B. T. Washington High School, Ashland; Jackson Street and Madison Street Junior High Schools, Louisville. According to the plan, the pupils will have been made familiar with the songs by their teachers in the respective schools, and the rehearsals will be devoted to perfecting the production. Miss R. Lillian Carpenter, chairman of the Music Department of the Association, has secured the services of. the well known composer and director, John W. Work, Jr., of Fisk University, to train the group when it assembles in Louisville for, its final practices. Observers will have an excellent opportunity to study the techniques used by Mr. Work. Teachers of music should find these techniques useful in local schools and communities. The schedule of practices is: Monday, April 12, 7:00 P.M.; Tuesday, April 13, 9:00 A.M., 2:00 P.M., 7:00 P.M.; Wednesday, April 14, 9:00 A.M., 2:00. P.M. The Sunday School room of Quinn Chapel is the place (tentative) of the practices. K.N.E.A. members may witness the training exercises without charge. There will be a nominal charge for non-members. Admission to the annual musicale, on Wednesday night, is free to K.N.E.A. members upon presentation of membership cards. ELECTION OF OFFICERS The annual election of officers will be held from 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Friday, April 16. The terms of all present officers expire on that date. Candidates for office who wish their names on the printed ballot should submit them as soon as possible to the chairman of the Nominat- ing Committee, or to the secretary of the Association. Presentation of a K.N.E.A. membership card is necessary to secure a ballot for voting. PRINCIPALS' BANQUET The Principals' Banquet will be held at the Brock Building at 5:00 P.M. Thursday, April 15, with President R. B. Atwood, of Kentucky State College, as toastmaster, and Mr. H. Fred Willkie as guest speaker. An excellent menu will be served at $1.50 per plate. Principals desiring reservations will please send check to the secretary by April 12. 4 SPELLING CONTEST The annual spelling contest, under direction of Mr. Theodore R. Rowan, will be held in room No. 201, Madison Street Junior High School, Friday morning, April 16. Contestants should report at 9:00 A.M., in order that a written elimination may be held if necessary. The oral contest is scheduled to start at 10.00 A.M. The names of contestants selected according to the rules of the contest should be sent to the Association secretary. BASKETBALL CLINIC Coach Dwight T. Reed, of Louisville Municipal College, has arranged a basketball clinic as a feature of the program of the Physical Education Department of the Association, and has invited Coach "Peck" Hickman, of the University of Louisville, to meet with the department members. Coach Hickman will use, for demonstration purposes, the University of Louisville Basketball team, which, this season won the N. A. I. B. tournament, and participated in the Olympics try-outs at Madison Square Garden. The demonstration will be held in the Louisville Municipal College gym at 2:30 P.M. Thursday, April 15. Coaches plan- ning to attend will please notify Coach Reed by postal card. POST-CONVENTION JOURNAL? This number of the K. N. E. A. Journal is the second of the three usually issued during the school year. The secretary has suggested to the directors that the third number be issued after the close of the April convention, and contain its important happenings. Otherwise, this. in- formation would not be published until next Fall. Whether this is done or not will depend on the action of the directors. The Domestic Life and Accident Insurance Co.

Nuckolls, President, K.N.E.A. The vigilant constituents of the Kentucky Negro Education are critically noting the present and far reaching implications of actions being taken for our educational program. While our over-all picture of education is hopeful, it is far from satisfactory. Post-war conditions make it difficult for teachers to cope with the general public in social and economical life. The lack of support received for education from state revenue is driving teachers from the profession. It is driving the teachers and thrifty families from the state. This condition and the practice of dis- crimination and differentials in the payment of teachers, the number of teachers, the types of buildings and the types of schools all present a question to the Negro group. Some encouraging improvements to- ward "Equal Educational Opportunities" for all Kentuckians have been made in the more recent past, yet, we are a long way from it. Whenever the General Assembly is in session is the time for astute actions for greater support for education. Enthusiastic and effec- tive support shall continue to lag in Kentucky as long as forces or (attempted forces) are so poorly united. When the KEA, the KNEA, each of the state schools, Committee for Kentucky, Teachers' Federation, and other organized groups can forget all else and unite and stand on a program that has been accepted by all for the best for all and all present the program to the public and our General Assembly, our cry may be heard. Otherwise it seems that it shall continue to pinch enough from other appropriations to pacify the contending education groups. During this year, your KNEA Board of Directors has held several meetings trying to get actions to our best interest. One of these meetings was with the State Superintendent and other members of the Depart- ment of Education. On January 22, 1948, a committee consisting of Sec'y-Treas., W. H. Perry, Jr., Victor K. Perry, Louisville; G. W. Jack- son, Louisville Defender, C. B. Nuckolls, Ashland, and your humble servant met with the Governor, Earl Clement. Both expressed interest in our behalf but it all seems to add up to the fact that teachers them- selves must work for what they want. Secretary-Treasurer W. H. Perry, Jr., reports admirable interest in our next annual program and in advance enrollment. Every effort is being made that our next program will be profitable and interesting. The president and the secretary will be glad to get any comment that will help toward a better and more democratic program. Athletics At Municipal College Revives With Reed By Howard R. Barksdale Dwight T. Reed, Jr., coach of the Louisville Municipal College Ban- tams, is a product of Bernie Bier- man, famous coach of the Univer- sity of Minnesota. For three years -1935, 1936, 1937-when Minne- sota teams were on the lips of every football enthusiast in the country, Reed started every game, except one, at right end for the Golden Gophers. Reed attended the elementary and secondary schools in his home, St. Paul, Minnesota. Playing on the Washington and the Mechanic Arts High School football and basketball teams of that city, he attracted the attention of the Minnesota coaching staff and was persuaded to enroll at Minnesota upon his graduation from high school. Weighing then only 175 pounds, Reed held down the regular right end berth on the 1936 and 1937 national championship Minnesota teams, and the Big Ten title winners of 1937. In 1942 Reed played with the strong Fort Knox Army team and in 1944 was on the victorious Army team in the Spaghetti Bowl game at Florence, Italy, between the Erighth Air Force and the Fifth Army. This is Reed's second year, at Municipal College where he started his college coaching career. In 1946 his team won five games and lost two to place Municipal at the head of 18 independent teams as listed in the back of the Official Football Guide, 1947. During the 1947 season, the Bantams were even more successful than in 1946 scoring victories over Fisk, Bluefield State, Philander Smith, Morristown, Miles, and Kentucky State. A scoreless tie with Lincoln University and a 19-13 loss to Lane College in the Homecoming game were the only blemishes on the 1947 record. Although Reed is new to college circles, he has had considerable experience coaching in St. Paul where his Hallie Q. Brown Community House teams in football and basketball have won two city champion- ships under his direction. At present he has about completed plans to institute a full scale recreational program at Municipal in the recently completed Intra- mural Building. 7 We Use Our Knowledge of Common Eye Diseases Ruth Lee Harper, Madison Street Junior High School, Louisville, Ky. Teachers, in general, can use the 'knowledge of the common eye diseases. Some of the eastern states have recognized this fact to the extent that a survey course in these diseases is now a required part of the under-graduate course of study. To see how useful such knowledge can be let us consider some of the causes and effects of a few common diseases. It is natural for little children to be far-sighted because the muscles of their eyes are not developed, and the eye does not reach its full size until the ages from seven to nine years. Many eyes are strained for life and many children turn out to be poor readers because they have been made to focus their eyes for reading before they were sufficiently developed. These children are more interested in distant objects than those in the class-room because they can see the distant objects better. Reading makes them nervous. On the other hand, the quiet little fellow who loves to read to the exclusion of everything else, may be near-sighted and developing into an introvert, simply because he can- not see what is going on at a distance. Pay particular attention to him if he holds his book very close to his eyes when reading. Near-sighted- ness is not a normal condition in children like far-sightedness, so it should receive immediate attention. Since the eye is a part of the body, the things which affect the body also affect the eyes. Diets weak in vitamin A may cause night- blindness; those weak in vitamin B may cause atrophy of the optic nerve; those weak in vitamin C may cause hemorrhages of the retina, and those weak in vitamin D may cause cataracts. What excellent reasons for teaching the value of proper diets! Some of the diseases which may affect the eye are diabetes, syphilis, tuburculosis, sinus trouble and glandular disturbances. High school children should be taught these things so -that they will know the necessity of seeking medical attention early, for themselves or future families. Time is an important element in some diseases, such as cross-eyes, which can be tsraightened if professional care is given between the ages from one to five years, or from five to ten years at the latest. The years from ten to sixteen are too late. This disease, more than any other, sets up unfavorable emotional reactions in children and adults because it causes the brain distress in the early stages and is cause for public curiosity as the years go by. People no longer have to suffer years of blindness waiting for cataracts to ripen before having them removed. Foreign particles entering the eye may do untold damage if not re- moved immediately. They may even result in the loss of sight in the good eye if the wound is deep. Teachers who are eye conscious pay more attention to proper class- room lighting and seating, to signs of eye-strain on the part of their pupils, to vocational guidance when the eyes become a factor, and to social and emotional adjustmentmelnts which may be due to eye-strain. Little things like not standing in front of the window when teaching, having unilateral lighting and that light coming in over the left shoulder, adjusting shades to prevent glare on desks, having artificial light well diffused, paying attention to the children on the dark side of the room and having the walls painted in flat-tone pastel shades of green or buff, will lessen nervous fatigue, improve scholarship and result in less eye trouble in adult life. Young eyes may be able to read S with insufficient light but the result of the strain shows up later on. Teach children not to look directly at bright lights, not to swim in water that has not been purified and not to use articles belonging to children who are suffering from pink eyes. All of these things may cause inflammation of the eyes. Even we adults who may be known as the intelligensia are difficult patients to treat because we do not cooperate with the medical pro- fession in a simple thing like using thed rops prescribed for glaucoma which might make an operation un-necessary and save our remaining vision. Our eyes are so important that our personality and health may de- pend upon the kind of eyes we have. Let us take care of them. K. N. E. A. Committee Visits Governor By G. W. Jackson A committee representing the K.N.E.A., by appointment, met with Governor Earle C. Clements Thursday, January 22, to seek his coopera- tion in carrying out the proposals of the Legislative Committee of the Association. Receiving the committee .very cordially, on the matter of current operating expenses, the Governor said, "I was glad to recommend sub- stantial increases for the West Kentucky Vocational Training School, Lincoln Institute, and Kentucky State College; but the amount which these institutions will get for capital outlay is a matter to be determined by the newly created Public Building Commission." Governor Clements expressed himself in sympathy with the request of the X.N.E.A. for an expanded program in the interest of Negro farm- ers, "but," said he, "in view of the fact that the budget has already been.approved by.the Legislature, I can make no further commitment. I realize the place .of purely academic education, but I am glad that the colored people along with the rest. of the citizens of the state are waking.up to the.importance of industrial training." As to the proposition of amending the Day Law, the Governor said that he felt that those who advocate this particular legislative action should. first create a sentiment strong enough to back up and. insure the passage of the measure before it comes before the. Legislature. "In genieral," commented the Governor, "I believe that the courts may be relied upon.for the eventual redress of inequalities to which Negroes are subjected." . . . . The committee was composed of W. 0. Nuckolls, president of the K.N.E.A., W. H. Perry, Jr., secretary of the organization, C. B. Nuckolls, principal of Booker T. Washington High School, Ashland, V. K. Perry, member of the K.N.E.A. board of directors, and G. W. Jackson. a Kentucky High School Seniors Win Top Honors In Pepsi-Cola Scholarship Contest Winning top honors among Negro students in a nation-wide $330,000 scholarship competition designed to aid American youth, a Kentucky high school senior, Christopher Clark Childress of Louisville, has re- ceived word'that he had been awarded a Pepsi-Cola Scholarship which will send him to college with full tuition, a monthly allowance, and traveling expenses paid for four years. Announcement of the award was made by Mordecai W. Johnson, president of Howard University and a member of the Pepsi-Cola Scholarship Board, who stated that Christopher was chosen from among 61 Kentucky candidates representing 23 public, private, and parochial schools of the state's Negro educational system. Kentucky's outstanding Negro scholar is 18 and the son of Mrs. Carrie Childress of 1732 West Oak Street. A student of Louisville Central High School, where is is secretary of "Quill and Scroll," Christopher was the third highest ranking Negro contestant in the United States in the Pepsi-Cola scholarship compeition. A total of four College Entrance Awards were granted this year to Negro students in Kentucky. They were won by Menalois Theodoria Bentley, Dunbat High School, the daughter of G.; Theodore Bentley of 640 Breckitridge Street, Lexington; John Joseph Moran, Palmer Dunbar High School, the son of Mr. and Mrs. William McQueen of Wheelwright; Thaddeus Lusby Reed, Dunbar High School, the son of Mrs. Mary L; Reed of 642 West O'bannon Street, Morganfield; and Mary Etta Shaun- tee, William Grant High School, who is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Adam K. Shauntee .of 136 Jacob Price Homes in Covington. In the' three previous Pepsi-Cola scholarship competitions, four Kentucky Negro students have been awarded Four-Year College Scholarships. They were won by Virginia McKinney deHarris, Dunbar High School in' Lexington, who is attending Fordham; Joseph Alexander, Lincoln Institute of Kentucky. in Lincoln Ridge, who is at Fisk Univer- sity; Violet Beard of Central High School in Louisville; and Gladys Edwards, also of Louisville Central. High, who is attending Western Reserve University. In addition, thirteen other Kentucky Negro students received the College Entrance Awards in the 1945,' 1946, and 1047 cqa etitiqcns.

Upon his return to the United States he became head of the De- partment of History and Government at Virginia Union University where he remained until 1930. After doing his residence work at Harvard he acted as assistant to Dr. Carter G. Woodson, editor of the Journal of Negro History. From 1933 to 1938 he was head of the Depart- ment of History at Aalanta University. Since 1938 he has been pro- fessor of history at Howard University, becoming head of the Depart- ment in 1942.

Professor John Wesley Work, one of the nation's leading Negro composers, has been on the music faculty of Fisk University since 1928 and now holds the position of professor of music theory. Two year ago he was awarded first prize for his orchestra com- position "The Singers" at the annual music congress of the Fellowship of American Composers in Detroit. His book American Negro Songs published by Howell-Soskin in 1938, has established him as an authority in this section of American folk music. Some of his best known com- positions are "Sing Oh Heavens", "Cnazonet", "Po' O1' Lazarus", "Soliloqy" and others. A prolific arranger of American Negro folk songs, among his most popular arrangements are "New Born", "Go Tell It To The Mountain" and "Way Over in Egypt Land". In 1945, at the request of the Haitian government, he visited the island to act as consultant for the administration in integrating music into the country's public schools. A former football star at Fisk University, Mr. Work received his A. B. from Fisk in 1923. He also holds a Mus. B. from Yale University and a M. A. from Columbia. It is reported that the Yale Glee Club rarely presents a program which does not include a composition by John Work. His works have been published by J. Fisher & Brother, Galaxy Music Corp., Mills Music Inc., and Carl Fischer, Inc., all of New York City; and by Theodore Presser Co., Philadelphia. Magazine articles under his authorship have appeared in Musical Quarterly, Dillard Arts Quarterly and other leading musical publications. A year after he began teaching at Fisk Mr. Work organized and directed the University Glee Club. Although it had but short-lived existence of four years, the group toured the United States, and in- fluenced many students to come to Fisk during the years of depression when student enrollments were at a low ebb. Later, a number of these young men sang their way into the world-famous Fisk Jubilee Singers. The composer comes from a family of outstanding musicians. Both of his parents were Fisk Jubilee Singers, and his father was director of the group at the time of his death. The father of the musical Works, John Work II, served on the faculty at Fisk for over 25 years as pro- fessor of Latin and of History. Mr. Work is married to the former Edith McFall and has two sons, John and Frederick. His membership in learned societies include, Association of Music Teachers in Negro School; National Society of Composers and Conductors. He is a member of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. 14 Attorney Belford V. Lawson, practicing in Washington, D. C. University of Michigan Law School; Yale University.
