Mtlllkn of California Tech, whose partlculn field is cnsmlo radlntlon; and Doctor Richard Chase Tolman, the mathemn- tlcian-physlclst, who conceived similar Ideas of relativity from the mathematical standpoint. The young Abbe came to California not only as a scholar but also as a teacher, for he delivered two lectures on his own Intriguing work—the concept of the universe. It is the belief of Lemnltro that tho universe^ came Into being some ten billion years ngo when a primary atom exploded tho disintegrating electrons and rays evolving Into our sun, Its planets, and thousands of millions of other suns and planets. He expressed the belief that the universe we see through the tremendous telescopes developed by modern science, Is Increasing In size just as a soap bubble grows larger. Life Extinct This expansion, he said, Inevitably must draw the galaxies, and their component parts—the suns and the planets—farther apurt, with life becoming extinct on tho earth because In receding from the sun Its necessary heat would diminish. Man's frigid climax, however, is still billions of years distant, he smilingly observed. During his visit here, Lemaltre spoke on science and religion. The two do not conflict he declared.
