PASADENA, Cal.,,Feb. 5. (^PJ--A group of famous scientists--astronomers and -physicists--today was intent upon prying off the lid of a box of mystery in which they hope to find the secret of the universe. Literally that is as Dr. Albert Einstein expressed It ,in an an- anhouhcement yesterday that Swept the old Einsteinian universe into oblivion arid erected "a new cbncepi in its place. No longer does he believe In a .symmetrical, . spherical universe. Such a thing is not possible under his new unified field theory. Tho evolution of the theory was ex' plained in detail by Einstein, step by step, equation by equation which resulted in the final equation embracing one general law that cov- ,ers the phenomena of gravitation and electro-magnetism and offers , 'a clue to the mystery of tha structure ot space. Investigation Means Unknown. Then Einstein told his fellow scientists that he presented the unified field equation as a closed box. and that he knew of no methods of investigation by indirect or physical experimental means of prying 1 off :the lid to see what was within. i Dr. Walter S.

Found Concepts Not Fitted. . These two men found that neither the original Einstein concept of the universe, nor that of De Sitter, Dutch astonomer and friend of Einstein, could fit the case. Einstein's old concept was that matter determined the amount of space in thu universe,-and De Sittet figured that PIS.'tter y^aa infinitesimal and sap be conceiyed a: Btaticor fixed universe" ? Tolmaii's calculations and Hubble s observations indicates a density, rather low, between that of the Einstein and De Sitter concept and suggested a non-static, ever expanding universe. That a solution is not far distant was the hope expressed last nijjtit by Tolman in a dinner honoring Einstein.
