A new university to be known as the Atlantic University will be opened under the chairmanship of Morton H. Blumenthal, member of the New York Stock Exchange firm of Blumenthal Brothers and author of “Heaven on Earth.” The institution is to be located at Virginia Beach, Va., and will be opened in September.

Psychic research and the fourth dimension will be included in the curriculum that is offered to advanced and graduate students besides courses in English, science, chemistry, botany and biology. Edgar Cayce, the head of the Cayce Hospital, in which Mr. Blumenthal is also interested, will be a director of the university, as well as David E. Kahn, New York furniture manufacturer.
