Jewish Italian Scientist Committed Suicide

Felice Momigliano, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Rome, popular writer and well-known scientist, committed suicide yesterday. His friends and family were astonished to learn, after his will was opened, that Prof. Momigliano, who was thoroughly assimilated and known for his atheistic views, desired to be buried according to the Jewish law.

Prof. Momigliano recently joined the Zionist movement.
