I EINSTEIN SPENDS
Scientist Lights His Pipe and
1 Begins Research on
E r th. Associated Prats.
PASADENA. Calif., January I
Albert Einstein lit his pipe totjay and
Vent to work.
“He puffs so much when he is in
' deep thought,” explained Prau Elsa, the
professor’s wife, in telling how he finds
' much pleasure in his pipe,
r It is a straight-stemmed pipe, with
him all the time like the pencil in his
v: jacket pocket. The two work together,
gjg; pencil and pipe, as his thought expands
, in the endless circles that embrace
platter and space, making up the
gif The pipe is not lit during press inter-
St views, for he regards them as diversions.
Then it is used as a pointer for em
If Day in Laboratories,
jt Today he spent most of his time in
fcme of the monastic like cells at the
m California Institute of Technology,
Dr. Paul Sophus Epstein, professor of
Igl theoretical physics at the Institute com
§§ muned in thought with the Berlin
mathematician. Epstein has an inti
mate understanding of the general
principal of relativity and has been of
great help to Einstein.
When Einstein applied his principal
K of relativity to the study of the large
scale behavior of the universe as a
. whole he adopted a simplification
P j, hypothesis that space was not independ-
II ent of matter, hence matter, the
* amount of it, determined the size of
■ i the universe.
fej ’ Then De Sitter, Swiss physicist,
I \ adopted a hypothesis that space was
B not dependent upon matter, hence space
, determined the size of the universe.
f| Non-Static Theory.
It It was Epstein whose analysis revealed
» these two simplification hypotheses were
I the only two mathematical processes
possible on the basic theory that the
universe was static.
’* Prof. Richard Chase Tolman, professor
of physical chemistry and mathematical
physics here, then suggested the
universe to be non-static and urged
; , Investigation of the non-static line
elements and discussed the principle of
annihilation of matter. This is
popularly known as the theory that the
universe is running down.
And so also in Tolman’g basement
cell, or laboratory, here, the pipe of
Einstein puffed. And the air was full
of smoke and the symbols of calculus
* lined up in equations.
These three, Einstein, EpstMn and
Tolman, all work with pencil and paper.
Mathematical physicists they are. In
other cells ari the experimental
physicists, working on practical tests.
Some are watching electrons cavort,
atoms collide, structures of crystals
change and the whole myst?ry of the
elements of energy constantly changing
Expect New Laws.
Others are putting time under the
microscope, observing cosmic rays and
meditating upon their possible source,
and trying to find out whether light and
msttef are based upon wav? or corpus
And out of all this thought, experi
ment and pipe smoking new basic laws
of behavior are expected by them, laws
like those of Euclid and Newton that
make men write new systems of

SUPREME COURT RULE
WILL PROTECT LABOR
Agreement Designed to Cause Ten-
Year Armistice in Steel In
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK, January 3.—The Su
preme Court today ratified an agree
ment designed to guard the steel in
dustry labor tie-ups by which it has
been hampered intermittently in the
The agreement, designed to cause a
10-year armistice In structural steel
labor disputes upheld by Justice
William Hannan Black in the $3,500,000
damage suit brought by the Interna
tional Association of Bridge, Structural
and Ornamental Iron Workers against
the Structural Steel Board of Trade,
Inc., comprising engineering and oon
-1 tracting firms.
The court held with the union that
the agreement, drawn up after a two
weeks’ strike by workers of the Empire
State Building last Spring, had been
broken by the board.
The agreement provides that all mem
bers of the board employ union labor
in the metropolitan district of New
York, which includes northern New
Jersey, western Long Island, southern
New York State and Fairfield County
The board, after authorising its
chairman, Charles L. Eiblitz, to nego
tiate with the union for an agreement,
refused formally to ratify the one In
volved on the ground that it failed to
provide for an Immediate Improvement
in labor conditions In northern New
Jersey, which were described as bad.
