PROFESSOR EINSTEIN With GERMAN MATHEMATICIAN Father Georges Le Maitre

Comparing notes on the universe here are Dr. Albert Einstein, German Mathematician-Physicist and Abbe Georges Le Maitre, right, Professor of the University of Louvain, Belgium, after the Abbe had announced to scientists at Pasadena, Calif., his theory concerning cosmic rays.   The rays were called "the birth cry of the universe" by the Abbe and the remnants of primordial fireworks that marked the beginning of the universe ten billion years or so ago.  Dr. Einstein lauded the theory as the "most pleasant, beautiful, and satisfying interpretation" of the source of cosmic rays that have been presented.
