A new discovery concerning the connection between the earth’s power of attraction and terrestial magnetism which, it is said, will cause a more profound sensation even than his theory of relativity has been announced by Professor Einstein.

The first news of the discovery was made by Einstein upon his arrival at Kantara, Egypt, after his recent trip to Palestine. Details of the new theory have not been revealed as yet.

Prof. Einstein, according to dispatches received here declared that his mental processes were greatly stimulated by a long sea voyage.

“Between the roaring ocean and the endless canopy of heaven, the flight of thoughts is indeed wonderful”, he said. “Far from the noise of cities, and above all, undisturbed by the horrible telephone, I could attain a concentration of thought which I otherwise could not have achieved.”
