There is sometimes a fine line between failure and success. This warm, inspiring personal story by a well-known N. Y. cartoonist, a victim of arthritis, shows that physical handicaps need not be a deterrent to a productive and rewarding life. In 1927, just after my seventh birthday, the doctor examined me, shook his head gravely, and said: "Bill, it looks as though you will be in bed a few months." I was. But the months dragged on into fourteen long years! I was a victim of arthritis - in both hands and both legs. I was taken to the hospital for treatment. I had always been extremely active, and idle days in bed did things to me. What was I to do? One of the nurses on the floor came to my rescue. She brought me the Sunday comic papers, and it was my daily assignment to copy Dick Tracy, Orphan Annie, and Lil' Abner. Sketching the antics of these imaginary creations amused me and helped pass away the long hours in bed.
