Monument to Mark Landing of Chamberlin and Levine

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The cornerstone of a monument to be erected on the spot where Charles A. Levine and Clarence D. Chamberlain landed here in their trans-Atlantic flight a year ago was laid with impressive ceremonies in the presence of Koehl, Fitzmaurice and Von Huenefeld, the Bremen fliers who made the first westward trans-Atlantic flight.

Representatives of the German Foreign Office, the American Embassy and other dignitaries attended the ceremonies. The monument will be in the form of a globe, with allegorical figures of Germany and the United States.
