In 1934 Joseph Trainor, with his colleague Selden Smyser, started planning for a conference on general semantics at the Washington State Normal School, which they eventually scheduled for March 1 and 2, 1935. They would call it the First American Congress for General Semantics. Meanwhile, after Kendig had been at Barstow School for several months, she asked Korzybski to come to Kansas City to work with her students and teachers. She and Korzybski arranged for an extended visit by him starting at the end of January 1935, continuing through most of February. From there he would travel to Ellensburg, Washington for the Congress. On the way home afterwards, Alfred would engage in as many paid presentations as possible. He was taking Science and Sanity on the road.
