The “hurtful squabbles” that have developed in connection with the resignation from the board of directors of Brandies University of Prof. Einstein, Prof. Otto Nathan and Mr. Lazrus were strongly criticized today by Dr. Stephen S. Wise in a statement issued here.

“One may rest assured that these eminent supporters of the Brandeis University would not have simultaneously announced their withdrawal if it had been possible for them to remain within it on the terms of self-respect,” Rabbi Wise said. He emphasized that “the association of the names of Einstein and Brandeis was freighted with finest promise” and charged Mr. Alpert with “destroying all that.”
