Professor Albert Einstein, world-famous Jewish physicist, will undertake no more journeys to America or to any other far-away country. This was the statement made here by Mrs. Einstein to Elias M. Grossman, American-Jewish artist, who has just completed a painting of Prof. Einstein. New York and America in general, said Mrs. Einstein, had so annoyed the Professor by their curiosity and their constant dogging of his footsteps, that he has decided to undertake no more journeys across the seas. Professor Einstein himself is said to have stated that he cannot understand why people should want to travel so much, giving as an example Rabindranath Tagore, the famous Hindu poet who visited Einstein recently and who does much traveling.
