©Pacific and Atlantic GREAT THRONGS HAVE GREETED MANY FAMOUS AVIATORS AS THEY LANDED AT TEMPELHOF AIRDROME, BERLIN And little wonder, for the field is in the midst of the German capital.

The author and her husband could readily understand, however, why the transatlantic flyer, Clarence Chamberlin, lost his way and came down first at Kottbus, 6o miles from Berlin. The countryside is dotted with lakes which look very much alike, and a network of railroads adds to the confusion, making the city difficult to locate from the air.
