Withdrawal from Faculty Comes Aft-

An anti-Liberty Loan remark was the
cause of stirring up a sensation which
resulted in the resignation of Dr.
Ernest Feise, associate professer of
German at the University of Wiscon-
Although he has been a member of
the university faculty for ten years,
Professor Feise is a citizen of Ger-
many. Upon America's entrance into
the war, he was permitted to continue
his connection with the university aft-
er he had signed a statement prom-
ising to take no part in the war and
The information was made public by
President Charles Van Hise who said,
"After investigation of the remark'
made by Professor Feise, it appeared
clear that his usefulness in the de-
partment and the university was at an
end. While Professor Feise's action
rendered it obviously impossible for
him to continue in the university, I
have no reason to doubt that he has
loyally and punctiliously observed the
parole which he gave at the beginning
of the war. In fact, he offered to re-
sign at once or any time in the future
if his presence in the faculty would
be an embarrassment to the univer-
