Hollywood Artists Now at Drew Five artists from the Hollywood studios of Walt Disney are now stationed at Drew Field. The men, stationed with the Signal Corps, in the tent area, did not leave their talens in Hollywood, how ever, and Uncle Sam no\V !has them on drawing !boards working out plans and draughting tor the armed forces. The placing of these men ic a good example of how the Army is trying to place men in the position where talent may be used.

N ewspape r men were cooking, and cooks were .:in radio before Uncle San1 found :best results were obtained by plac:ing the proverbial round peg in a round hole and visa versa. The soldiers from Hollywood are MolTis Sikofsky, Per Ruse, Richard Lyford, Edwin Schmidt and Grant Thompson. Many of the f -antastic .characters created in the Disney studios were products of 1Jheir ima.gi.na,tion and pens. The Dumbom IJJer, which flew during the latter part of "Dumbo" was designed and 'built by Lyford. Richard also wrote .and directed the last part of the picture. "Piniccio" and "Fantasia" were other feature-length cartoons -which the men helped produce and bring before the movie fans.
