Crowds of Santa Cruz Children in "Babes in the Woods"

The Fox juvenile company left last evening for Los Angeles after over a week's stay at Santa Cruz, during which time "Babes in the Woods" has been filmed in the redwoods. With the exception of the past two days the scenes were enacted in the Big Basin.

Yesterday was a great day with the Santa Cruz children who participated - who not only enjoyed their party, but also the acting of Virginia Corbin and Francis Carpenter as the babes. Mrs. Grace de Lamater assisted and was in charge of the Santa Cruz young people. They were mainly from the lower grades, a number from the high school, besides 40 convent children.
