This week I want to share an article written by David Knisley and me. It concerns our WWII War efforts, some Wartburg Central fifth graders and their eccentric teacher. It is all true.

During WWII, the U.S. Government sponsored highly publicized “drives” to gather all sorts of scrap material to assist in the war effort. I vividly remember a scrap metal drive we had in 1943-44 when I was in the third grade.
