Perry, Jr. Secretary-Treasurer, K.N.E.A. 2230 West Chestnut Street Louisville 11, Kentucky Dear Mr. Perry: The response to our appeal for aid to finance our recent court case against the University of Kentucky for equal educational opportunity was most enthusiastic. Most of the credit for raising funds justly goes to the organization of the K.N.E.A. and its various districts. Wbile it is almost impossible to estimate properly how many contributions came in because of the stimulation from the K.N.E.A. officials and the officials of the District Associations, we can say that they have done a fine job. We do know that the following amounts were reported through their organizations: 1st District Association Mrs. Bettie C. Cox, President, Paducah ........................................ $106.00 2nd District Association Mr. W. 0. Nuckolls, Treasurer, Providence ................................ 79.06 3rd District Association Mr. H. C. Mathis, President, Drakesboro .................................... 214.94 4th District Association Mr. Stephen M. Samuels, President, Fairfield .......................... 37.00 5th District Association Mrs. Susie St. C. Tucker, Secretary, Louisville .......................... 313.00 Bluegrass Association Mr. W. B. Chenault, President, Stanford .................................... 195.00 Eastern Association Mr. Karl Walker, President, Hazard ........................................... 90.00 Upper Cumberland Association Mrs. Anna L. Shobe, Treasurer, Lynch ........................................ 292.41 K.N.E.A. General Treasury ............................................... 450.00 Kentucky State College .----------------------------------------------------------------------------119.84 Louisville Municipal College Students ............................................... 61.00 Lincoln-Grant School, Covington Mr. H. R. Merry, Principal .......................................... 31.00 Bowling Green-Warren County N.A.A.C.P. Rev. J. E. Jones, President .50.00 Murry, Mrs. Juanita Rowlett .5.00 First Baptist Church, Horse Cave Mrs. S. N. Thomas ..6.00 Milton School, Mrs. A. J. Tucker .5.00 TOTAL ...........................................................2............................... $20-55.19 Thus you can see that the K.N.E.A. has been our right hand in this undertaking. Even above we have not ascribed to each District all that it may have been responsible for raising. Yet we do report to you as --it-was reported to us. And we do thank all and may each share in the joy that goes with a job well done. Yours truly, Lyman T. Johnson, President, Louisville Branch N.A.C.P. 4 Who Is Who on Convention Program Archibald J.
