HOP OFF ON TRIP AIMED AT POLAND
Two Brothers Take Air On First Leg of Flight Today

BROOKLYN, N. Y., June 28 (AP)— The Adamowicz brothers, Benjamin and Joseph, silent partners in business and flying, took off at 5:40 (E.S.T.) today on a flight to Warsaw, Poland, their ancestral home.

Have Fine Weather

Promised fine flying weather for the next 48 hours, they headed for Harbor Grace, Newfoundland; there to re-fuel and turn out across the Atlantic to their native land.

They were accompanied in their red, white and blue monoplane "Warsaw," by Holger Hoiriis, who flew to Copenhagen in 1931 in the same plane—then "Miss Liberty." Hoiriis was to leave the brothers at Harbor Grace.

Their great ship rumbled down 3,000 feet of the 4100-foot runway before finally lifting heavily into the air. After rising to only about 50 feet, it "mushed" down, but then gathered altitude and rose safely to
disappear in the early morning haze to the north.

Harbor Grace First

Their prospective route would carry them to Harbor Grace in ten hours then over the great circle route to Dublin, Berlin and Warsaw, They carried six sandwiches, a dozen hardboiled eggs and coffee,
Hoiriis said the brothers would set forth from Harbor Grace "just as soon as they get tanked up."
