“The Star Shell,” ordnance publication issued by the Navy Department employees, reveals today that Professor Albert Einstein is now an employee of the Ordnance Bureau of the Navy.

Dr. Einstein, the publication says, will work on the theory of explosives at his Princeton, New Jersey, home. It adds that “Dr. Einstein will not be in uniform – he thinks better in his old windbreaker with his trousers rolled up.”
