Your Charm article about Disney

Below is an early-1940s article from a magazine called Your Charm, a young woman’s magazine alone the lines of Mademoiselle. Forgive the quality of the quick-and-dirty digital photo and the fact that the piece is incomplete. But I couldn’t resist documenting this sentence in the article: “By this same token you probably find more crabbing there than in any other business in town. It runs the gamut of from why is Fred the gardener planting all that alfalfa to what does Walt want to make that story for!” I guess some things in animation never change. This caption on the second page is also a classic: “Frequent sketching trips to the nearby zoos and the surrounding countryside are conducive to romance for young Disney artists.”
