Sons of the Desert (1933)
The newspaper held by Mr. Jones has the same headline that appears in another Hal Roach studio feature, Laurel and Hardy's "Sons of the Desert" from 1933. The newspaper headline (The Los Angeles Daily Bulletin) reads ""HONOLULU LINER SINKING! FOUNDERING IN TYPHOON." The same newspaper may still have been in the props department at Roach Studios and was put to use for this later LR short.
Stan mentions that Ollie and he once belonged to a lodge.
Still is shown.
Mentioned by Kent.
The scene where Moss & Roy enter a packed conference room is a play on a very similar scene by Laurel & Hardy, even down to Moss/Oliver having his hand trapped between two chairs.

One of the crooks tells the Dukes that they are in trouble with their wives "for overstaying their time at the Convention", just like Laurel and Hardy were in deep Dutch for going to the S.O.T.D. convention whe they were supposed to be in Hawaii for Ollie's health.
