Deploring the world wide publicity given his near five-page manuscript and irritated over the clamor of news- papermen of all languages to obtain from him elucidation of his theory in advance of his paper’s publication, Dr. Einstein smilingly gave to the corre- spondent of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency the following statement on his attitude toward Zionism. He insisted, however, that the statement be pub- lished in full. The English translation of the text follows: “Jewry is like an animal which was beheaded two thousand years ago. Jerusalem, with its Temple, was its head. It was God’s miracle that it re- mained alive for so long a period with- out a head. The second miracle oc- curred when the body, grown form- less, several scores of years ago de- cided that it must have a head, and has already formed a little head in Palestine. However, this head is still too small, too thin and too weak for such a huge body. See to it that it grows into a full sized head, as befits the body.” BARSHAY TR ANTI-SEM TION BY Examination of Sustains P (Jewish Minsk, Jan. in the Barshay ers charged w Semitic persecu ish fellow worl becomes evideti sian Soviet au to convert the onstration agai enemy of the this reason tha in Minsk inste The cross-e fendants was c brought out f charge of the Barshay was t mistreatment f Dreize Bars her testimony court.
