DeKalb High School Making Model Planes for War Effort

From the April 4, 2018, MidWeek  "Looking Back."

1943, 75 Years Ago.

"Excellent progress is being reported  from the DeKalb Township High School on the task of constructing model planes for use of the United States government in its defense training efforts.

"The planes are made to an exact scale and when viewed from a distance of about 35 feet appear similar to an actual plane at about 5,000 feet in elevation.  They are used in training civilian air watchers and men in the armed services for spotting and training guns."

Even the high schools getting into the war effort.
