Other suurs wliom they were introduced to were William Mong, Charles Clmse. Oliver Hardy and Stan Laure.1. They watched a Hal Roach comedy being made in which Messrs Hardy and Laurel play, and took snap shots of the actors, who were very nice to them. Mr. Laurel was. brought to this country 18 years ago from England, by Charles Chaplin, who sponsored him in the movies. The making of pictures was a very Interesting sight to the visitors, who learned that the background for them is a huge building on the movie lots, In which there are sets where several eoenes can be taken at one time. Several of the sets were recognized by the Sterling people as those they had seen in plays and comedies on the screen. The pictures are made with a musical accompaniment, usually of three pieces, a portable organ. «elto and violin, which follows the scene in the same manner as the movies are followed by the organist At Universal City they saw where the western pictures are made. Hoot Gibson and others. They also saw the Cathedral used In "The Hunchback of Notre Dame," and sets for a forthcoming Fairbanks picture. , SI*** OJd Frteada.

During their lasst wwk Sn Los Angeles, the Sterling folks accom panled friends by motor on »n overnight trip Into southern California *nd old Mexico. They stopped over night in San DSego and the nex morning went to Balboa Park to hear the largest outdoor organ in th« world, a gift to the city from William WrUley, then continued on their trip. One of the beautifu spots along ths way to Mexico' was X* Jolia. an artists' colony where every house Is made from white stones in Spanish style. The party crossed the line over Into Mexico that afternoon and spent a few hours In Tta Juana. which is a notorious drinking and gambling place. From there they motored on several miles to Acqua- callente, another old Mexican city where they saw a beautiful new hotel erected, and "America's Monte Carlo," & gambling resort. The party was very much interested in Mexico but felt mucii safer when they crossed the line back into the states before sundown.

From San Frfencisco they went by boat across San Francisco bay to Oakland, and there boarded the train to leave California. Their route home through Salt Lake City, Utah, and the Royal Gorge is the most »cenic trip in tha United States. Several times the train halted, and the passengers alighted from the tvain to go down into the gorge and tefc« kodak pi^tu«ffl of the uaow capped mountain peaks. The Sterling people made one stopover on the return trip, in Denver. They enjoyed a trip up Lookout Mountain, where Buffalo BUI and his wife are burled, and came down the mountain through Bear Oreek O&nyon.
