Smith Swea City — It takes courage md determination to turn mis- ortune into the means of at- aining a lifelong ambition, but Warren Ewing of Swea City eems to have done it. He is on the way to success as i commercial atist, though hts itudio is a hospital bed in the State Sanatorium for Tubercu- osis Patients, at Oakdale, Iowa and his working hours are limited to one half-hour per day. Warren, a dark, slender young fellow in his mid-thirties, is the youngest" son of Mr and Mrs Oliver Ewing of Swea City. Following graduation from the Swea City high in 1938, he went to California and enrolled m a night school course in art there. That six weeks course is the only art instruction Ewing ever had, up to now. ' Weds Classmate His marrage to June Northern, his high school sweetheart (daughter of Mr and Mrs Wm. Northern, former Swea Cityans now at Thompson), took place 15 years ago. Art education is long and costly, and the prospects of success in that field are uncertain. So Warren took a position in the Greyhound bus terminal, , jn Washington, D. C. With a growing family his art was relegated to the position of a hobby. Nevertheless, Ewing continued to draw Following World War II, thL Ewings and their children re- urned to Swea City and Warren ecame" a postal clerk. In July, 951, he went back to Wasning- on, D. C. to resume his old posi- ion with Greyhound. But the ollowing February he became ritically ill, and his ailment was iagnosed as tuberculosis. He was brought back to the Oakdale sanitarium, and his wife nd four children remained in Swea City. Last November, bad luck struck ai other blow. Warren, who had Deon hoping that surgery would hasten his recovery, contractea nfluenza. Regaining the ground thus lost has been slow work; but Warren is unfailingly cheerful and hopeful. Now it seems thai at last fortune is smiling upon him for through a federal rehabilitation program, he has at last A-eceivecl the opportunity to study art. Moreover, he is meeting with .striking success. Starts Art Course Famous Artists Inc., of West port, Conn., offers three corres pendence study courses througr the rehabilitation program. Ar iSngeu according io tne difficul iy oi the material, they are priced in that order. The prospectw student must submit two of hi drawings with his enrollment ap plication, and the faculty judge decide which course the student talent best tits him for. Warre was proud and happy to b selected tor the most difficu course, and to,have the rehab Illation officials okay nis enrol muni, all expenses paid. Th bggest thrill, however, was r ceivud when word came from th rehabilitation officer in Washing- Ion L>. C., that not only had Warren been accepted for the most acivaiua-'d course but that his application had been marked •100% plus excellent'—the highest marks ever to be granted Io an applicant at the school. Warren does not confine himself to the work prescribed by the course. Though doctors allow him to draw lor only 30 minutes a day, he finds time to sketch fellow—patients, visitors, or hospital attendants, and his wife is the proud possessor of a drawing of their four children done from a photographl Warren's likenesses are starting in his drawings; his ability at port raiture seems almost uncanny although he draws landscape and still lite witli competence too. Marvin Uhr, a Swea City farm ei, ia a patient just across th hall from Warren, and the tw exchange news and mail. Mi_ Uhr is working in the children division of the hospital, and she too is able to look in on the two men frequently.
