Berlin, March, 1947: Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower's wartime pet, Telek, enjoys a last moment of freedom before being caged up for the long flight (American Airlines' 13,830th transatlantic crossing, the sign notes) to San Francisco. The Scottish terrier was on its way back to its current owner, WAC Capt. Kay Summersby; Ike's former secretary had left Telek with Lt. Gen. Lucius Clay when she returned home a few months earlier.
