More on Synchronizing Mickey

In this Readers Digest (August 1934) version of an article from the July 1934 Woman's Home Companion, we find on page 108 a simple description of the bouncing ball system to record Steamboat Willie...
We also find mention of "the three raids on Disney's staff."
Now - the first was Mintz' Oswald take-over in early 1928, and the second was Pat Powers' Iwerks/Stalling maneuver in January 1930.
But what was the third that this article refers to?

The "third" raid might have something to do with "The Three Little Pigs" director Burt Gillett being hired away by Van Beuren in 1934.

I don't know if that happened before this 1934 article.
