COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, 'AT'RIL 23, Budget-Minded Vacationists Can Make Play Togs Double As Work Clothes Chile ; (UP)—Two Chilean university students who started out three years ago without*'any money but with a big idea have become the budding Walt Disneys of the Latin American screen. • /The: two students, Carlos Trupp, 2B, and Jaime Escudero, 27, are not merely imitators of the famous Disney. Their originality already has won praise from Disney him- self'who visited Chile late in 1941. 'The young men started from i scratch, knowing nothing of the technique or problems of film- J nuking. Disney is Astonished First they formed a company with half a dozen other cartoonists and then they persuaded the government's Production Development Corporation to lend them 5,000 pesos (about $160). Necessary supplies were obtained and credits established and the group worked without pay. Their progress was remarkable. /When Disney visited Chile last year in search of the material for liis own studios, Trupp and Escudero were his hosts when he called at their studios. Fascinated, Disney remained two hours, inspecting their antiquated and handmade equipment, and giving them much valuable advice. The American prdoucer *vas astonished to find that Trupp and Escudero were producing first-class films with the same type camera with which he began his own career.

By MARGUERITE YOUNG NEA Service Staff Writer NEW YORK.—Vacations will be "Made in America" this cruiseless war-torn year and—play togs will be styled for double duty. Whether they're rugged or picturesque, whether made for mountain climbing or on horseback or for exploring the mesa afoot or for plain walking in the woods, all the new recreation outfits have two significant qualities: I—They are dry-land garb. 2—They're fit to stay in a working wardrobe after the vacation is over, and do weekend duty at "back yard barbecues" or other simple outdoor doings, such as gardening or just puttering around. Such doings, the designers realistically foresee, will be part of, and will supplement, practically every wartime vacation. Several parade-leading New York stores just now are stressing "backyard barbecue" clothes, as well as grills for the garden, the back yard, the roof. These vary from apron-and-cap outfits equipped with autographing-fun gadgets, to sturdy denim slacks and gay dirndl! dresses.

The Gordon, Ga., officer spmds four hours each morning teaching the bayonet class, then in the afternoon conducts a class in jiu-jitsu for a military police unit. Just how did. athletics help the compactly-built officer? "I played football and basketball at Middle Georgia Junior College and later at Vanderbilt," he said. "In football T was used at guard, fullback and blocking back, but always as linebacker on defense. Nat- uraliy, I had to .watch the lead blocker, get rid of him and then smear the bail carrier. The trick of learning to disarm two of the enemy with bayonets while unarmed yourself compares closely with backing up a line in football." Wife Is Frightened Lieut. Hayden, who was commissioned five years ago, stole the show two months ago when his division staged a sham battle at nearby Comanche, Texas, for some 7000 citizens. His bayonet demonstration was effective, almost so terrifying that his wife—who never before had seei* him in bayonet drill—almost fainted.

Draft Board Encounters Brand New Proposition MT. CARMEL. 111. (UP)—Freeman Annis, chairman of the local draft board, lists this as the most unusual offer presented to his board since the selective service act was passed. J. G. Ingersoll of Mt.Carmel told the draft board that if a married man with children wanted to go into the service, but was unable to provide for his dependents, Ingersoll would be glad to take the man's job for the duration and turn over half the weekly check to the dependents. war no matter who wins, but he believes that by intelligent planning. America can avoid Fascism or Communism, but warns that "the surest way to achieve disaster is to attempt to stave it off by fighting to preserve the past." Briefly, he proposes "democratic collectivism," or planning for production for the good of the greatest number. Methods and objectives would be tormed by leaders or experts but would be ratified by democratic procedure, all of which sounds much like other plans. Drc'ner, however, has tho saving grace of avoiding a dogmatic atiitude toward ways and means, but warns continually "we can't go on like this or there will be a showdown and not the kind most of us would welcome."
