JP-Fascinating and valuable as has been the information in experimental physics and astronomy he has received from scientists here, the most interesting lesson Albert Einstein has learned is the great growth in American public interest in science. That was the keynote of his impressions disclosed in a round of public receptions marking the last week of his two months' visit in California. Einstein said he had learned America no longer looked upon material wealth and power as the highest good. Particularly interesting, he says, is his observation that so many Americans have placed a conslder- ible part of their fortunes and of Lheir energies at the service of scientific enterprises. And he expresses at each .function appreciation of the fact that the fostering of science by the American people does not stop at the national boundaries. He was the guest of honor of Pasadena at a luncheon today and i banquet ofthe Los Angeles chamber of commerce. A research conference with Dr. Sinclair Smith, astrophysicist of the Caraegie insti- :ute of Washington Mt. Wilson laboratory, as the lecturer, wag also arranged. The subject at the conference was the relation between the width of spectral lines and length of wave trains dealing with experimental lata in which-Einstein is interested n his effort to reconcile classical mechanics and the Quantum theory.
