a his message President Hainisch emphasized the equal role of Charles A. Levine in the historic flight, to the glory of America.

Despatches from Budapest relate the details of the rousing reception given to the American flyers.

Levine and Chamberlin were received yesterday by Admiral Horthy. Regent of Hungary, and Count Bethlen, Prime Minister.

In an interview with representatives of Jewish newspapers Charles A. Levine stated that he keeps aloof from general as well as Jewish politics.
