Caption: "Los Angeles, California - Photo shows: Miss Marvel Crosson, who piloted her Travelair plane to a point more than 20,000 feet above the earth here. Whether Miss Crosson bettered the existing mark of 20,700 feet held by Miss [Louis McPhetridge?] of Oakland Cal., will be determined when an official reading of her altimeter is made. The instrument which is graduated to 20,000 feet showed that she had passed that height."
