Telegram sent by Police Chief C. H. Roach


C. H. Roach is the Chief of Police of Elmira, New York. When the Rascals go missing, having gotten themselves locked in a boxcar headed for New York City, he wires a telegram to the New York Metropolitan Police to watch the railroad yards for the six missing children.

While the message says the children's ages were 3 to 7, the actors' ages actually ranged from 4 to 10 at the time of the filming.

The chief is named after Hal Roach's father.
