NESTLED IN THE Pasadena Valley, surrounded by green wooded hills, stands the Rose Bowl, palace of sport, stamping ground of the heroes of football. The stadium stands as a salute to the millionfold American sports followers, and to the men who valiantly participated in the games, as thousands cheer their favored team to victory.

THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL, rich in the rustic natural grandeur of the hills and slopes of Southern California. Acoustically perfect, this, the world's largest amphitheatre, plays host each year to the greatest musicians of our time and the greatest music of all time, at the Symphonies Under the Stars.
