Description with the photo: "DeLand pool. Aircraft construction class. Clyde Williams, instructor in the Volusia County, Florida Vocational School, believes women make just as good welders as men. He is shown here with a new class starting in aircraft welding, part of the training program of the De Land pool to provide workers for war production. Left to right are Jane Parker, whose husband already is a war welder and plans to volunteer for the Navy when she can take his place; Kathleen Nowlin, stenographer, an English girl who is a naturalized American citizen; and Sybil Meyers, a housewife."
