Schoolboys Learn To Make Air Ships

It had been less than seven years since the Wright brothers flew the first airplane, but already kids gathered in after school clubs learning to build their own working models.

The boy inventor is not hindered by patent restrictions of any kind. He is free to copy any model he sees fit, and the cheapness of the material brings such experimenting within the reach of all. Every meet or tournament of the boy aviators serves to bring out many new models. A large proportion of these are, of course, futile, but each serves to bring the youthful inventors a step nearer to the goal.
