  • The New Jewish Record
    triumphant human march over the forces of blind nature We are no longer obliged to prove that Jews are just as capable and strong on the field of physical bravery as they are on the field of intellectual achievement Every front during the war from 1914 1918 could tell the story of Jewish courage and heroism Every sport bears the names of Jewish players and record holders Until recently however we have heard little of Jewish pilots giving themselves over to flying And so it has fallen upon a New York Jew the son of immigrants from Vilna to show that the Jew does not stand on the sidelines of the newest noblest and most important of human accomplishments Together with the gentile Chamberlin Levine has risked his life with stalwartness and looked the greatest fear right in the eyes Together with the American Christian Chamberlin the American Jew Levine has broken the record of air travel Levine has demonstrated more than physical courage He is a rich man He has enough money to live high and wide for all his days and to allow himself all life has to offer But for him the option of material wants was
