Refugio writes that he has a letter written in the cipher of
the K. G. C. from Major Charles A. Russell to A. M. Hobby

which he says is a simple one.
Rock Creek is a ghost town in the western part of Parker
County. In 1900 it was a coal mining town of a thousand
inhabitants. Today only the mine shaft remains. Camp Wolters
is being built near the site.
Dr. and Mrs. Albert Woldert of Tyler are interested in having
the various chapters of the D. A. R. participate in the com-
memoration of the De Soto-Moscoso expedition, which was sup-
posed to have been in Texas in 1542. Dr. Woldert inquires as
to whether the Association can assist. Perhaps the best assist-
ance, aside from slow and painful research by members, is to
hold regional historical meetings sponsored locally by schools,
newspapers or patriotic societies. Arrangements are under way
to hold such a meeting in Tyler early in May.
Lewis Gannett, editor of Books, New York Herald Tribune,
is sending some current books for the auction. "And thank
you," he says, "for sending me the Junior Historian-it ought
to wake up the boys and girls, and they need it. I'll never
forget the number I met who saw "Texas Under Six Flags"
all over the state in 1936, but couldn't list the six. Don't take
this as sectional prejudice. "New York under Four Flags"
would stick a lot of our boys and girls." The second issue of
the Junior Historian is off the press.
