This story about Bremen runaways Edwina Keyser (13) and Lowell Mast (14) ran in the Sunday Mail of Brisbane, Australia – 6 March 1938. (Note: they translate the money into Australian shillings and pence. Australia converted to the decimalized Australian dollar in 1966.)

The Logansport Pharos had a more detailed report prior to their safe return.
A hitch in World War 2 notwithstanding, things seem to have worked out okay….
Edwena passed away in 2008 at the age of 84.
