StR,—My review of Pinocchio in your columns last week contained a reference to Mr. Walt Disney's " talented staff of gangsters and animators."

I hasten to assure Mr. Disney and his collaborators that " gangsters " is a misprint for " gagsters " (or gag-men). I had no intention of suggesting that either the brains or the hands of an Al Capone would be welcomed even in the special studios occupied by Donald Duck and Monstro the

whale.—Yours faithfully, BASIL. WRIGHT.
