PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE . . .
Are we assuming full responsibility as educators as we look toward the future:—As we
look toward the future, the teacher's stake in education is obviously tremendous. In times
like these, when everything in the universe is undergoing a change, except change itself, we
who hold positions in any worthy aspect of community life must be sensitive, not only to
the changes, but we must direct the thinking of our youth into channels best suited to our
democratic way of life.
The tensions and frustrations of the Atomic Age, lasting scarcely a decade before the
Age of Space emerged into its ballistic missiles and satellites, .and further disturbing the
emotional life of the public school youth, cause administrators and teachers to broaden their
academic foundations and intensify their professional zeal to adequately cope with these
sensitive disruptions with a minimum loss of time and effort.
A bro.ader scholastic foundation will enlarge our professional horizon, and give us a
clearer perspective of our total stakes in developing our youth to lead happy normal lives.
A triple track line of understanding must be kept open from teacher-ro-pupil-to-interracial
Too much praise cannot be given to our district meetings for the fine work being done
in these areas. This administration will continue to enlarge its numbers and to gear its
work to the parent association, thus keeping the association close to the people.
Mr. A. G. Hilliard, retiring president, is to be commended for his outstanding program,
and for his unique way of blending successfully, all professional and lay forces throughout
Texas. We hope that many of his excellent ideas and ideals will still prevail.
The administration also wishes to go on record as endorsing .a more extensive par-
ticipation of classroom teachers and college instructors in the executive areas, such as
serving on the Executive Committee and becoming President of the Association.
Occasionally, I have had time to meditate over the challenging and thought provoking
address given by Mr. L. D. Milton, President of Citizens Trust Company, Atlanta, Georgia,
during our recent convention, ,and how he pointed out many of our weaknesses in the field
of business practices, as well as in the area of thrift and savings.
I am more convinced that our teachers might do well to think about the possibility of
establishing a "Cooperative Plan'' of saving at the State or District level. Call it by name,
credit union or whatever name that can be legalized for the purpose of thrift. I also believe
that we have people from localities equal to the task of giving legal, sound and thrifty-
saving formula, thereby, causing the program to be available to all interested teachers in
every nook and corner of our vast state. A few of our fortunate teachers in the larger
cities perhaps have the rare privilege of holding membership in credit unions where saving
and other benefits are available.
Therefore, 1 suggest and recommend that we give serious thought to this matter and
that we explore the possibilities of investigating and instigating a program designed to
give emphasis to the Legalized Saving Investment for our teachers of Texas.
In closing, let us think on these things:
1. That classroom teachers in the public school and at college level receive support—
consideration for filling any office of the association.
2. That plans be placed in motion to stimulate the habit of thrift for .all teachers of
the association through Investment Plan.
3. That the lines of communication between public school and college teaching per-
sonnel be kept open and active by conferences similar to the past.
4. That we streamline our programs with the purpose of shifting the interest from
corridors to the places sessions are in progress.
5. That all individuals become more concerned about attendance when they accept
offices in the Association.
6. That the Delegate Assembly become the workshop of the Association.
7. That a detailed financial report shall accompany our educational progress in the
Standard at regular intervals.
8. That attempt be explored to establish an Interracial Liaison Committee.
I shall be happy and appreciative to receive comments and suggestions from the teachers
of Texas expressing their views on these matters.
