The difficulties experienced by Professor Albert Einstein in obtaining a visa to the United States where he is to head the Mathematics School of the Institute for Advanced Study, were little known to Berlin yesterday.

A number of distinguished German professors stated to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, however, “It is not awaited that the American authorities will listen to the plaint of the Woman Patriot Corporation or that they can be oblivious to the fact that the Einstein Theories are completely detached from politics and that Einstein himself has never been a party man but has always worked for justice or the well being of suffering humanity. Should the demand of the Woman Patriot Corporation be permitted to interrupt Einstein’s visit to the United States, world history will have been created and the story will be told in school text books in the future.”
