WHERE TO GO WHAT TO DO Behind The Movie Sets WITH BUDDY MASON Hollywood, Calif. — "I was beaned by a full ox-yoke, Buddy!" The speaker, normally a spry man of middle agi>. leaned heavily on a cane. When we first met Harry Wagner, he was doubling Larry Semon. a silent- day comedian. Your Hollywood errand-boy was then a young stunt-man, hastily loam d from another unit to complete a job that went "haywire" on the Wagner !; d. * • * Mrs Marjoric Apple « » • Arriving hurriedly from a neighboring set.

They had to start dressing the new double. Fortunate!} for Harry's dignity, they had a spare pair of trousers in a larger .size that would better fit their new substitute. .-In the intervening years, no matter where we me!, or how "Hen, the Wagner lad would clutch his trousers and yell: "Oh, no you don't. Mason! You can't have those trousers, either!"-Our present meeting was no exception. After the familiar greeting, lie 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 ev^r been conked with a full ox-voke, P-irldy'.'" » » * Somowhai puzzled, we asked, "And just what is a full ox- yoke?"—"It's a yoke with ,the oxen .•••till 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, us you knuw, I've been doing a bit of "extra" work lately, so when 1 heard that the great C. B. was doing a lemake on his "Ten Commandments." I ankled over to the Paramount lot. You know how DeMilie never forgets a face.
