Two automobiles loaded with moving picture machines and other equipment passed through here today, headed for Crater Lake, where pictures of the attraction will be taken. The cars were from the Kiser studio in Portland and were being piloted by MR. Kiser and his son. In the party were Mr. and Mrs. Perkin Eaton of Boston. Mr. Eaton is a writer of much note and will probably get some inspirations from the lake. Mr. Kiser intends to erect a studio at Crater Lake and will capitalize the scenery of this part of the state, both in scenic films and in photoplays. — Grants Pass Courier.
