Download PDF for this date

The two manuscripts donated by Prof. Albert Einstein to spur the sale of bonds for the Fourth War Loan were auctioned off here last night and brought $11,500,000 at a rally where $13,537,000 of bonds were sold. One manuscript is a recopy by the scientist of his original theory of relativity, and the other is “the Bi-Vector Field,” as yet unpublished.
