300 Faculty Members of
Wisconsin to Hold Con

MADISON, Wis., January 11.—
Thrust into the presidency of the
University of Wisconsin as a "pinch
hitter,” George Clarke Sellery, be
spectacled, white-haired dean of the
College of Letters and Science, called
300 faculty members into confer
ence today. He planned to ask them
for support during his temporary
regime as successor to Dr. Glenn
Frank, dismissed by the Board of
He acknowledged the appointment
as a "surprise,” but immediately
moved for restoration of peace on a
strife-torn campus. He emphasized
he doesn’t want to be president per
manently, and will retain his dean-’
Frank Plans Statement.
Dr. Frank worked today on a state
ment setting forth whether he would
accept the regents’ action as final.
Legislators prepared for a session
Wednesday at which three Senators
have promised to bring the question
before their colleagues. Investiga
tion of the ouster proceedings and the
method of selecting university regents
were probable proposals.
In both Senate and Assembly a
coalition of Democrats and Republic
ans would outnumber the Progressive
party, whose appointees control the
Board of Regents.
Although gruff and outspoken in
official actions, and dubbed "The Old
Tory” by students, Dean Sellery has
a ready smile and sometimes a humor
ous story for Informal occasions.
Appointed Dean in 1919.
He was appointed to the deanshlp in
1919, shortly after he and two other
faculty members circulated a petition
asking the United States Senate to
expel the late Robert M. La Follette,
sr., for his attitude toward this coun
try’s entry into the World War.
Sellery was born in Kincardine,
Ontario, January 21,1872; received his
bachelor of arts degree from the
University of Toronto in 1897, and
came to Wisconsin directly from the
University of Chicago, where he was
granted his Ph. D. in 1901. He has
taught history courses continuously
and is the author of several widely
used text books.

Legislature May Get Case.
Frank's partisans looked today to
the convening of the State Legisla
ture Wednesday for the next rever
berations over his dismissal.
An investigation of the Prank case
and of the method of selecting uni
versity regents stood out u I distinct
possibility In view of the conflicting
opinions concerning charges of po
litical control of university affairs.
State Senators Joseph Clancy, Ra
cine, and Harry D. Bolens, Port
Washington, both Democrats, an
nounced they would have something
to say about the case on the Senate
floor soon after the session begins.
Senator John Cashman, a Progres
sive, one of Frank’s supporters in
the two-day ouster hearing before the
Board of Regents that resulted in the
educator’s recent dismissal, likewise
indicated that he would take up the
case before the legislators.
The Senate line-up has 9 Demo
crats, 8 Republicans and 16 Progres
sives. A coalition of Democrats and
Republicans would produce a majority
that could vote for an investigation
of the case. In the Assembly there
are 31 Democrats, 21 Republicans and
47 Progressives, so a coalition of the
old parties in that chamber also could
produce a majority that could bring
about a probe.

A flurry of excited anxiety hung

tors were hurriedly called.
Dr. Aminta Milan!, the chief physi
cian, remained at the bedside for two
and a half hours, then reported there
was no immediate danger.
Pope Pius began the sixth week of
