Making Model Planes in Schools for the War Effort and Life Magazine
From the March 6, 2017, Roanoke (Va.) Times "Looking Back."
1942, 100 Years Ago.
** "More than 200 boys taking general shop instruction in senior and junior high schools of this city already are at work on exact scale models of the world's fighting aircraft for the U.S. Navy Bureau of Aeronautics."
(They were also dong this in schools in DeKalb County, Illinois.)
** "Roanoke friends of Lieutenant J. Lewis Ingles, attached to a balloon barrage corps on the west coast, were displaying pictures of the Army officer yesterday when copies of Life magazine reached here."
