   When I first read the field notes of Annie Alexander and Louise Kellogg, I was fascinated by the descriptions they wrote about the places they went and the plants and animals they found there. By publishing my field notes on the Internet I hope to follow a little bit in their tradition.

Rees C. Vidler, for more than twenty years a resident of Lookout mountain, died in Denver last week, following several months of illness. Heart disease was the cause of his demise. He had reached the age of 72 years. Funeral services were conducted in Denver Sunday, and, in accordance with the wish of Mr. Vidler, the body was cremated and the ashes were scattered from the top of Lookout mountain. Mr. Vidler and his associates purchased the Lookout mountain property about twenty years ago and carried out many plans for converting that section into the famous summer resort which it has become. Mr. Vidler was a native of England, but be had lived in America since 1882. He came to Colorado soon after coming to this country and he had been active in mining and many other projects before coming to Lookout mountain.

He was a member of the Denver club, the Denver Chamber of Commerce, the British School and University club, New York, and Royal Societies club of London, and the Fifth Christian Science church of Denver. He belonged to no lodge or fraternal orders.

Surviving him are his wife, Mrs. Kate Vidler; two sons, Capt. Louis Vidler, of Denver, and S. G. Vidler, now of Chihuahua, Mexico, and two daughters, Mrs. Revillon, of New York, and Mrs. Roderick Horne, of England, and a brother, Samuel Vidler, now living on Lookout mountain.

  In 1920, a Philadelphia Baptist seminary closed causing twenty-three of its Russian students to enroll in the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary on the south side of Fort Worth. Learning that several of their fellow countrymen lived on the North Side, the students wanted to convert them.

The seminarians established a church in 1920 with funds provided by the state mission board, calling it the Clinton Avenue Baptist Church for Slavic People. A plain white frame structure, the building had frosted windows, oak pews, ceiling fans, a pulpit, and a baptistry. At a service on New Year's Eve, six Russian immigrants who worked in the packing plants and lived on the North Side were baptized. The young men had arrived on the North Side seven or eight years earlier, most coming without their families, with plans to work a few years and then go back with American dollars which could be traded for twice as many rubles. World War I and the Russian revolution interrupted their plans.

The parishioners became an informal community assistance group that helped others in their transition to American life. The church was the spiritual center of the Polish community, but it also provided a trilingual school of sorts, a social gathering place, and a welcome center for new immigrants. It actually did more to Americanize and indoctrinate the newcomers into Protestantism than to help them keep their old world values and traditions.

Sylvester Lozuk was one of the six young men who was baptized that first New Year's Eve in 1920. Lozuk had arrived in Fort Worth in 1913 to start a new life in America. Five years after his baptism, Lozuk replaced the first pastor, Peter Pawluk, and continued to serve the congregation for over a quarter of a century. He delivered sermons in three languages Russian, Polish, and English and the congregation sang hymns in Russian, Polish, and Czech from translations of the Baptist Hymnal. The Clinton Avenue Church remained the only Slavic Baptist Church In the entire Southern Baptist Convention for several decades.

A dozen years after its establishment, the church listed a membership of sixty, but Sunday services sometimes counted 150 in attendance, including non-members and children not yet baptized. Before World War II, men sat on the right side of the aisle and women on the left according to the Eastern Orthodox custom. When Harry Polinsky, a veteran of World War II, returned home, he found that the custom of separating the sexes by a center aisle had ended.

In 1954, the Tarrant Baptist Association honored Lozuk for twenty-eight years of service. After he died in 1957, by members continued the preaching in three languages. By 1961, however, most of the second and third-generation congregation had moved, or had married English-speaking partners and were attending services elsewhere. The church closed its doors and the remaining members transferred to the Rosen Heights Baptist Church.

The Kansas City Library has an artificial collection of materials about Kansas City Schools, titled "Local Schools Collection," including the following about the Pembroke School:

"Pembroke School (Pembroke-Country Day School)
Location: 7444 State Line Road, 51st and Ward Parkway, Kansas City, Missouri
Purpose: Private boys school
Contents: Numerous pamphlets/brochures on the school and summer activities,

In 1984, the all-boys Pembroke County Day School merged with the all-girls Sunset Hill School, which survives today as the Pembroke Hill School (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Pembroke_Hill_School)

Original Text
BOTANY. — The grass genus Schizachne.1 Jason R. Swallen, Bureau of Plant Industry. (Communicated by A. S. Hitchcock.)
The generic position of one of our native grasses, at present known as Melica purpurascens, has been somewhat uncertain. It was first described from North American by Michaux as Avena striata and later by Torrey as Trisetum purpurascens. From Siberia it was described by Ledebour as Avena callosa and from Sachalin Island by Hackel as the type of a new genus, Schizachne, which he compared with Festuca and Bromus. Hitchcock transferred it to Melica and Farwell to his new genus Bromelica.
An examination of Melica purpurascens leads to the conclusion that the species is generically distinct. The texture of the glumes suggests Melica but the bearded callus, the strongly nerved lemma, bifid at the apex, the divergent awn, and the brown smooth shining caryopsis are characters not possessed by any species of Melica of the section Bromelica to which the species is more closely allied than to Festuca or Bromus. Furthermore the innovations are extravaginal, while those of the section Bromelica are intravaginal and the culms are often bulbous at the base.
The species under consideration shows affinities with Bromus but the styles are exactly terminal and the caryopsis is entirely free from the palea while in Bromus the styles arise below the apex and the caryopsis is adherent to the palea. It also resembles species of Festuca but its bifid lemma and bearded callus exclude it from that genus. It differs from Melica smithii (Porter) Vasey, which has been grouped with it, in the bearded callus, the more deeply bifid lemma and the smooth caryopsis.
In view of these differences it seems best to segregate the species as the type of a distinct genus, taking up the name Schizachne Hack.
The geographic distribution of Schizachne, which is monotypic, is similar to that of a number of species mentioned by Asa Gray,2 being found in northern North American and eastern Asia. This distribution was recognized as early as 1842 by Turczaninow3 who referred his collections, later described as Avena callosa, to Avena striata Michx. Hulten,4 in his Flora of Kamtchatka, also states that Asiatic specimens agree completely with the American ones.
Schizachne Hack.
Spikelets several-flowered, articulate above the glumes and between the florets, the rachilla glabrous; glumes unequal, 3 and 5-nerved respectively; lemma lanceolate, strongly 7-nerved, long-pilose on the callus, awned from just below the teeth of the prominently bifid apex; palea with softly pubescent, thickened submarginal keels, the hairs longer toward the summit; ovary glabrous, the styles exactly terminal; caryopsis dark reddish brown, very smooth and shining. Type species, S. purpurascens.
Schizachne purpurascens (Torr.)
Avena striata Michx. Fl. Bor. Amer. 1: 73. 1803. Not Avena striata Lam. Collected by Michaux "a sinu Hudsonis ad Lacus Mistassins." Type in Museum d'Histoire Naturelle at Paris. A fragment in the U. S. National Herbarium has been examined.
Trisetum purpurascens Torr. Fl. North. & Mid. U. S. 1: 127. 1823. A cited specimen in the Torrey Herbarium, at the New York Botanical Garden, has been examined. It is labeled in Torrey's handwriting, "Trisetum pur- purascens Tor. fl. near Montreal."
Avena callosa Turcz. in Ledeb. Fl. Ross. 4: 416. 1853. "Catal. Baic. nr. 1295" is cited. Judging from the description and a specimen from "Vallis U-scha-gon, Siberia," Kamerov 163, there is no doubt that this is identical with Schizachne purpurascens.
Avena striata forma albicans Fernald, Rhodora 7: 244. 1905. "Quebec, abundant on mossy tableland, altitude 900-1500 meters, Mt. Albert, Aug. 9, 1905." [Collins & Fernald 26] The characters are not sufficient to distinguish it from the species.
Melica striata (Michx.) Hitchc. Rhodora 8: 211. 1906. Based on Avena striata Michx.
Melica purpurascens (Torr.) Hitchc. Contr. U. S. Nat. Herb. 12: 156. 1908. Based on Trisetum purpurascens Torr.
Schizachne fauriei Hack. Repert. Sp. Nov. Fedde 7: 323. 1909. "Insula Sachalin, in silvis prope Korsakof, Faurie 803." A portion of the type from the Hackel Herbarium has been examined.
Avena torreyi Nash in Britt. & Brown, Illustr. Fl. ed. 2. 1: 219. 1913. Based on Trisetum purpurascens Torr. Not Avena purpurascens DC.
Bromelica striata (Michx.) Farwell, Rhodora 21: 77. 1919. Based on Avena striata Michx.
Perennial herb; culms erect from a loose decumbent base, the innovations extravaginal; panicle simple, about 10 cm. long, the branches one or two together, more or less drooping, bearing one or two spikelets.
Dry, moist, or rocky woods and open places, in North America from Labrador to Alaska, south in the United States to Pennsylvania, Indiana, and in the mountains to South Dakota and New Mexico; also in Asia from Kamtchatka and Sachalin Island, west to Lake Baical.
