In the year 1957, when interest in Einstein's unified field theory
was fading away for lack of understanding of its physical content,
Treder performed a momentous critical analysis of the possible defi-
nitions of the electric four-current in the theory. As an outcome of
this scrutiny he was able to prove by the E.I.H. method that prop-
erly defined point charges, appended at the right-hand side of the field
equation R[”
, ] = 0, interact mutually with Coulomb-like forces, pro-
vided that a mutual force independent of distance is present too. This
unwanted, but unavoidable addition, could not but lay further disbelief
on the efforts initiated by Einstein and Schršodinger one decade earlier.
