To be- I come normal again the world must ! return to its pro-war international- ; ism. Such is the diagnosis of Ku- ; rope's and the world's ills by Ger- ' many's foremost physical scientist. ; Albert Einstein, discoverer of tht I Einstein theory of relativity. i I had come to Prof. Einstein to j ,ar what he had to say about the j "plight of German science," a sub- ject which just then occupied much j jpacs In the newspapers of Berlin, j Prof. Einstein, however, spoke not ! of science but of humanity. "Of course. lie said. science is ulfering from the terrible effects of the war, hut it is humanity that should be given first consideration", j Humanity is suffering in Germany. 1 everywhere in Eastern Europe, as it has not suffered in centuries." "Humanity," he continued, "is suf- j ferinsr from too much and too nar- ; row a conception of nationalism. , The present wave of nationalism, j uhlch at- the slightest provocation ! or without provocation passes over , into chauvinism, is a sickness. ! 'The internationalism that existed j before the war, before 1914. the in- j terr.atioralisni of culture, the cos- j jnopolitanism of commerce and in- ; Custry, the broad tolerance of ideas this internationalism was essentially right. There will be no peace oa earth, the wounds inflicted by the war will not heal, until this internationalism is restored." ' "JD-ces this imply that you oppose the formation of small nations?" Not Opposed to Small Nations. Xot in the least." he replied. Internationalism as I conceive it implies a rational relationship between roiinfrips n sane union and under standing between nations, mutual ! co-operation, mutual advancement J without interference with a country's I customs or inner life." "And how would vou proceed to : tring back this internationalism that existed prior to 1914?" "Here," he said, "is where science, scientists. Vnd especially the scientists of America can he of great service to humanity. Scientists, and the scientists of America in the first place, must he pioneers in this work ot restoring internationalism. "America is already in advance rf all other nations in the matter of Internationalism. It has what might be called an international 'psyche.' The extent of America's ieaning to internationalism was shown by the initial success of Wilson's ideas of Internationalism, the popular acclaim they met with the American people. ) "That Wilson failed to carry out his Ideas is beside the point. The enthusiasm with which the preaching of these ideas by Wilson was re ceived shows the state of mind of j the American public. It shows It to be Internationally inclined. American scientists should be among the first to attempt to develop these j ideas of internationalism and to help ; fairy them forward. For the world, j anfl that means America also, needs, a return to international friendship, j The work of peace cannot go forward !n your own country, in any court-: try, so long as your Government orj any Government is uneasy about its International relations. Suspicion r.a bitterness are not a good soil for ; Progress. They should vanish. The : Intellectuals should be among the ; Srst to cast them off." j IttecesntWe to Nnsiaior Men. There are two men in Germany , today who are traditionally inacces- ( tfble to newspaper men. One is the financier, Hugo itinnes. The other j 1 Einstein. j Einstein has been greatly abused , by a section of the German press and ! h therefore shuns publicity. He j 'ves In a quiet section of Berlin on the top floor of a fairly up-to-date ; apartment house. His study consist cf a. reception room, or rather conference room, and of his pri-te workroom. The walls of the inference room are lined with books of a general character. The ' rt: number of English books is "Pecially noticeable. There is an d!tion de luxe of Dickens in En-Msh, and a costly Shakspeare vdi- t)rm in German. Alongside of Shak- j 'Peare stands Goethe in a similarly uxurious edition. Einstein is an ad-j mlrer of both Goethe and Schiller,! r-4 has the busts of the two poets ! Prominently displayed. ' Adjoining the conference room is , large music room.
