Bob Jones, proprietor of the St. George Hotel, through whose efforts the filming of Fox's "Johnstown Flood" in Santa Cruz was made possible, spent all of Monday in the nearby mountains in company with the company's photographer taking views of cloud and storm effects made available through the recent temporarily unsettled climatic conditions.

Director Irving Cummings of the unit filming the flood story was especially desirous of obtaining such views for purposes of study in connection with the filmatization of the storm shortly before the breaking of the flood proper.
