The earlier alignment took a high line route to the west in the Sierra Nevada (Sierra Nevada (U.S.)) and Scodie Mountains foothills around it following the Los Angeles Aqueduct route past Jawbone Canyon, thence following the Southern Pacific railroad tracks through Rosamond (Rosamond, California) and Lancaster (Lancaster, California) and on to Los Angeles, following the route that was later assigned to U.S. Route 6—the Sierra Highway) in 1937.

Como quiera que haya sido, hay que señalar que ''chinas'' las hubo y las hay en otras partes de México e incluso de América Latina.

La indumentaria de las ''chinas oaxaqueñas'' sólo se distingue de aquélla de la ''china poblana'' en que la falda no está bordada con lentejuelas y chaquiras. En el mismo estado de Puebla, las ''chinas atlixquenses'' son otros personajes del folclor local que participan en el festival cultural ''Huey Atlixcáyotl'' de la ciudad de Atlixco. Con el nombre de ''chinos'' se llama en general a las clases populares del Perú, y ''chinas'' fueron también las mujeres de los gauchos argentinos (Argentina) y los huasos chilenos. -- Early life and career Hays was born in Franklin, Pennsylvania, the son of Samuel Hays, a member of Congress and general in the Pennsylvania militia.
