I like the proposal and the concept of having matching plaques at both ends. I have some suggestions for the citation:

The first transpacific undersea telephone cable linking Japan, Hawaii and the US Mainland was completed in 1964. It was a joint project among American Telephone and Telegraph, Hawaiian Telephone Company, and Kokusai Denshin Denwa. Service over the new cable was inaugurated on 19 June 1964 by President Lyndon B Johnson and Prime Minister Hayato Ikeda, as they exchanged a congratulatory telephone call on the completion of this communication bridge between Asia and America.

Dear Mr. Feisel, Thank you, and as the Proposer, I agree to your advice. However, your sentence has 73 words. Though I am not sure how strict the 70 words limit, I amend as below:

The first transpacific undersea telephone cable linking Japan, Hawaii and the US Mainland was completed in 1964. It was a joint project among American Telephone and Telegraph, Hawaiian Telephone Company, and Kokusai Denshin Denwa. Service over this cable was inaugurated on 19 June 1964 by President Lyndon B Johnson and Prime Minister Hayato Ikeda, by exchanging a congratulatory telephone call on this communication bridge between Asia and America.
