WHERE TO GO WHAT TO DO Behind The Movie Sets '•••iV:' : .; WITH / BUDDY MASON Hollywood. Calif. — "I wa beaned by a full ox-yoke, Bud dyl" The speaker, normally a spry man of middle age, leanec heavily s on a cane. When we first met Harry Wagner, he was doubling Larr£ Semon, a silent day comedian. Your, Hollywoo( errand-boy Was then a young stunt-man, hastily loaned frorr another unit to complete a jqb that went "haywire" on the Wagner lad. » * » Mrs Marjorie Apple * '• * .• Arriving •hurriedly from a neighboring set, Harry's hospita' trip was delayed by two wardrobe men who were crowded into the back seat of a standby car apparently, wrestling with the in- PLANTATION BALLROOM WHITTEMOHE, IOWA , Thursday, Nov. 24 Thanksgiving DON HOY Friday, Nov. 25 ANDY DOLL Sunday, Nov. 27 /CLEM BRAU Friday, Dec. 2 BABE WAGNER Sunday, Dec. 4 DON SHAW Friday, Dec. 9 Jolly Lumberjacks , >•'• ca— ii— i —- .-,'/;' No Advance Booth Reservations Doors.

Actually, they were trying to peel off his double's coat and < shirt without hurting Harry, They had to start dress' 1 ing the new double. Fortunately for Harry's'dignity, they had a sisare pair of trousers ' in a larger size that would better fit their new substitute. ..In the intervening years, ncf matter where we met, or how .often, the Wagner lad would clutch his trousers and yell: "Oh,no you don't, Mason! You can't have these trousers, either!"— Our present meeting was no exception. After the familiar, greeting, he announced, '/Nice to meet you on the way back from a hospital, for a change!" All of which brings us back to Harry's opening statement. He quickly added, "Have you evj»r been conked with a full ox-yoke, Buddy?" ' * * .» Somewhat puzzled, we askedl "And just what is a full oX- yoke?"—"It's a yoke with ..the oxen still in it, you dope!" was the enlightening reply. Now this made sense. - Smelling a story, we pressed him for details and were rewarded with the following tale, which we'll try to tell in his words: "Well, Buddy, as you know, I've been doing a bit of "extra" work lately, so when' I heard that the great C. B..was doing a remake on his "Ten Commandments," I ankled over td the Paramount lot. You know how DeMille never forgets a face. 1 sometimes think he has to make those gigantic spectacles to give all the old-timers he likes a little work! He's got a memory like the idiot-board' for a whole troupe of elephants. If you ever delivered exactly what he wanted on a DeMille show, he'll never forget! •••*.«* Milton Dettman * * * .. "In no time, I was getting a deep Egyptian sun-tan in a body- makeup spray booth. Then I was fitted-in enough bed-sheeting to make a \slip-jcover (for the U.S.S. Missouri. After that, they lustled us out to the location, seems that this is the day that :he Red Sea' has its grand open- "ng and it looks like all the people in Hollywood have joined all ;ha animals in California for a *ace to get across with dry feet Defore the whistle blows and the Red Sea closes its Dry Passage Department. . • ' "Well, Bud, they assign me to a big group with ox-carts and every kiml of animal-drawn .ipJe from goat-Wagons to pony-rigs,. with people scattered.', n between. They're all set to stage the large, economy-size DeMille version of the first and ast land-rush to be staged bc- .ween walls of \yater. When C. B. fires the starting,gun we take off down a steep hill on a gallop "or the water's edge. So far, so good! * * * You know how I like animals, Bud. While our competitors on he other hills are getting ready and shuffled into position to race us for where the hole will open n the ocean in another shot, I M »eal pglsey with the team of oxen behind me. If they get to ike me, maybe they won't step on my heels on the vyay down, fust when we're getting chum- ny, lunch is called. I save the apple from my box-luncn and 'onect about 3D more from guys vho don't like apples. Then I tuff 'em all in the folds .of my heet-ensemble. ' * • * "Well, Bud, afler lunch I start tuf/ing 'those long-horns with pples—and do they love 'em! *Vhen they'd finish one, they'd lose the folds of my wrap-ar&und mtil I led 'em another. Then, ight in he middle of our Apple "•estiva], we get the signal. Off ,ve tear, down this hill-but I'v» till got apples and they know t! Sp, they're racing hot on my eels after more apples. Well, Bud, that heavy cart gels to roll- ng so wild that it's pushiing the xun along so fast they can't stop Worse yet, so fast that I can t outrun 'em,. My sheet' suddenly snags -j- I stop — they keep 6n corning. Then.the lights go out! well,-Buddy—boy, I got news for youl You ain't neyer been cold* 1 cocked 'till youjve been conked on the back of the ,old gourd with a full ox-yoke!"
