"PIGS" CAST TO APPEAR ON LOCAL STAGE

Co-operating with Irving Cummings, director of the big Fox unit filming "Pigs" in this city, and Charles Woolstenhulme, assistant to Mr. Cummings, Manager Earl Amos of the New Santa Cruz Theater, has been successful in securing "The Johnstown Flood," Mr. Cummings' recent sensational production made in Santa Cruz and Soquel, for presentation at the local theater on the days of April 28 and 29.

Wednesday, the 28th, through the generosity of Director Cummings, has been designated "Fox Night," for on that evening Mr. Cummings; Janet Gaynor, ingenue lead in "The Johnstown Flood" and feminine lead in "Pigs"; Will Walling, lead in "Pigs"; Art Housman, comedy lead and remembered by scores of friends here for his remarkable heavy part in "Thunder Mountain," and the whole great big cast of the picture at present being made here, will appear in person on the New Santa Cruz stage.

Mr. Amos also has high hopes of being enabled to repeat the personal appearances on the following evening, Thursday.

The company again worked on location at the J. A. Gayton High Street residence this morning. Later they transferred to an East Santa Cruz location, and in a few days will commence concentrated work on Bob Jones' Hotel St. George hog ranch.
