"While Eelnstein still regarded tho universe to be static, nnd unchanging), the Jesuit professor did some pioneer thinking with the principle of relativity and was perhaps the first to declare the v.nlveise to bo expanding and cverchanglng. Lemaltre's discussion of the expanding universe was the topic for the day of tho Journal Club at the library of the Mount Wilson Observatory here.

Japanese officials laughed today Tyhen Informed rumors were circulating that a formal declaration of v^ar was likely, to be forthcoming from Japan on China.
