Editorial Comments K. N. E. A. LOYALTY -he ardent supporters of the K. N. E. A. are requested at this season to show their loyalty to the organization by sending their an- nual fees of one dollar each for 1932 enrollment. As explained in the last issue of the Journal, the K. N. E. A. is without funds to pay for its publications and clerical work. Our only solution to the prob- lem is to have the principals of our schools urge their respective teachers to enroll several months earlier than usual. Individuals all over the state are requested to take seriously this appeal and mail at once their dollars to the K. N. E. A. Secretary, A. S. Wilson, 1925 W. Madison Street, Louisville, Ky. Nearly one hundred teachers have already responded to this call and it is hoped that at least five hundred will immediately follow the example which has been set. The Board of Directors of the K. N. E. A., at a, recent meeting in Louisville, added their sanction to this special request and join the secretary in making this special plea. *** * * $**** ROSENWALD This issue of the Journal makes a special feature of Rosenwald Day. One of the chief objectives in the annual observance of Rosen- wald Day in Kentucky is to keep before friends of education the great service being done by Julius Rosenwald for Negro education. It is fitting that Kentucky show annually its gratitude to this great bene- factor of the Negro race through a special issue of the K. N. E. A. Journal. The K. N. E. A. takes pleasure in calling general attention to a recent award made Mr. Rosenwald. For unselfish, helpful service to his city, state, and nation, Julius Rosenwald was made the recipient of the first of three merit awards sponsored by the Rotary Club of Chicago. The award was created by the club to give recognition to distinguished service by Chicago citizens. The award was in shape of an engrossed scroll for Mr. Rosenwald personally and a bronze plaque to be placed in the Museum of Science and Industry in Jackson park and a perpetual memorial to his achieve- ments. The plaque bears the following inscription: "For his personal integrity and responsibility of power in the social and industrial order. For his constant effort in the creation of opportunity for all, regardless of race, creed, color or accident of birth. For his endowments and participation in service to all fields of local and national education, and including farm colonization in oppressed regions abroad, Negro schools, housing betterments, hos- pitals, universities. For his faith in the permanence and progress of truth to inspire mankind in the achievement of the highest ideals, and the most effective service to society." 2
