Follow the link on that page to Daniël van Eijmeren's guidebook:

There it says:


Alberto Becattini: "Carl Barks submitted 12 gags in 1939 and 2 in 1940. I have no clue as to which strips he actually wrote. Apart from 39-09-11, which was spotted by Michael Naiman and published in Comic Book Marketplace # 40. Indeed, Michael found that Barks had recycled that daily strip gag as the "Beans" gag page appearing in Four Color # 189." 

An article by Stefan Schmidt, published in an issue of "Der Donaldist", contains more examples of possible Taliaferro-Barks connections. 

Questions: Is Carl Barks the writer or the plotter of this strip? Is this the only newspaper strip which has been identified as being among Barks' 1939 and 1940 gags? What is the issue number of the "Der Donaldist" with the article about possible Taliaferro-Barks connections?
