Sees Repetition of History if Einstein Leaves Reich

History would repeat itself if Professor Einstein changes his place of residence from Germany to some other country in the event that the Hitlerites get control of Germany, Arthur Brisbane writes in his daily column, “Today.” “Persecution of Jews drove many of the ablest minds from Portugal and Spain, men that could have prevented the Spanish decline into failure and superstition,” Mr. Brisbane says. “Among those thus driven out were the parents of the great Spinoza. At about the same time, the wisdom of Cromwell, welcoming the Jews, helped to build the prosperity of England.”
