PAGE TWO BMTHEV1LLB (AWCJ , APRIL fll, Iffl Einstein Overturned Tke Most Traditional Notions of Physics By FRANCES LEW1NE PRINCETON, N. J. (AP) — Albert Einstein, intellectual adventurer, said he had a "kind of faith that helped me through my whole life — not to become hopeless in the great difficulties of investigation." This m«n, v-ho died Monday, overturned llic- rr.osl i'kditlonal notions of physics. He. was the son of middle class South German Jews. From his father, Hermann, an electrical engineer, he first learned about science. His mother, Pauline Koch, gave him his love of music and art. Einstein didn't speak a word until he was 3 years old, but by the time he was 14 he had taught himself algebra, analytical geometry and integral and differential calculus. None of this had yet been taught him in school. He was also deeply interested in philosophy. He intended to follow his father's profession and took entrance examinations at the Polytechnic Academy in Zurich, Switzerland. His knowledge and understanding of mathematics and physics amazed his professors. Only Fundamentals The young scientist, however, was mainly occupied with physics. He said he early learned to study only what led to the fundamentals and "to turn aside from everything else." Einstein, who arways WHS passionately proud of his Jewish cultural and spiritual traditions, was married In 1903 at the age at 24 to a Serbian Catholic, Mileva Marie, whom he met In a mathematics class. They had two sons, Hans Albert, born In 1904, and Edward, born in 1909. Hans became a hydraulics at the professor University California and ft consultant on soil erosion for the TJ. 8. government. Edward remained in Zurich, and little was known here of bis activities. Einstein's first marriage ended in divorce. When he went to Berlin in 1014 to accept » post a« professor of the Prussian Academy of Science, he met again his first cousin. Elsa Einstein, with whom he had grown w«r« married « year had, two judgment. She took over the man agement of all or her husband's affairs and there was a saying In Berlin that: "If you would knov Herr Albert, first know Frau Elsa." Einstein, who cared little for money and rejected offers of large sums for articles and testimonials, was perfectly satisfied to let his wife guide his personal and prl vate life. "They make sucn demands on his time," she once said, "he must have peace In which to think." She died in Princeton in 1BSB at the age of 58. Unpredictable But, with all his love of seclusion, he wns often unpredictable, People who didn't know him expected him to be some sort ol super-being, They were astonished on one occasion when he visited downtown Princeton. A smai group gathered to watch. He bought a newspaper, then went Into a 5 and 10 cent store for a comb and a cake of soap. Apparently he read all his mal and answered a good deal of I himself, including requests from puzzled high school students. And there was the occasion when one got by the front door. A 14 year-old pupil at Princeton Coun try Day School, he was so puzzled over an examination problem he decided to ask Einstein for a solu tlon. The boy said He thought tha two consecutive odd numbers, the difference of whose squares is 5« may be negative as well as post live. "You're right," said Einstein.
