What production?

Ken Peterson, whom we have seen previously on a draft, was in charge of a lot of paperwork in the 40's and 50's. In mid-1946 situated in room 1E-19, he issued casting schedules to the animators of the shorts. But which film is this?
Who has heard of Prod. No. 2357 - Share & Share Alike?
Its number is wedged in between 2356 Chip an' Dale (rel. 1947) and 2358 Pluto's Purchase (rel. 1948)... This memo is dated 5/13/1946.

[Addition: From Charles Solomon's book "The Disney that Never Was" we can learn about this film: it was a Donald Duck short where Don and his nephews fight over an apple. It was all animated, but after an ARI it was found it would make one of the worst shorts ever if nothing was done to salvage it - and it was shelved.]

SHARE AND SHARE ALIKE is an unfinished short with Donald and the kids fighting over an apple. It apparently made it well into animation when it was shelved for being too weak and repetitive (yet tons of very similar, equally simple Pluto cartoons were made without even the benefit of another well-developed character playing opposite Pluto!).

Is there any hope in hell that animation done on this short have surfed somewhere online? or underground for that matter.
