There will be sorrow in Danzig, Germany, if the 
American casualty list of yesterday ever arrives 
there. For in the seaport capital of West Prussia 
there lives the father of Corporal Walter Fenske, 
one of Pershing's doughboys, whose name was carried 
among the wounded in action yesterday. A brother of 
Fenske, fighting with the German army, has already 
been killed in action.

Fenske, who is 23 years old and has lived in 
America since babyhood, was concluding his fifth 
year of employment with the Western Electric company 
when the president issued his proclamation of war 
last April 6 and called for volunteers.

Promptly Answers Call.

Fenske immediately responded, enlisting in the 
United States infantry. He sailed for France in 
June of 1917. A sister lives at 821 North Central 
Park avenue. The mother is dead.

Private Stanley Stolowsky, also reported wounded, 
was formerly a teamster in Chicago. His widowed 
mother, Mrs. Minnie Stolowsky, and grandmother, 
natives of Poland, live at 2358 North Seeley avenue. 
The mother, who goes out daily to do laundry work 
to support herself, and Stanley's grandmother 
joined in this expression yesterday:

"We will gladly give our boy to our country, and 
God will keep him safe. But if it is necessary for 
his life to be given to save dear Poland and the 
world from those awful Germans we will make the 
gift gladly."

Private Claude A. Tiffany, another Chicago boy 
listed as wounded, enlisted April 30, 1917, in the 
regular army. He was formerly employed by the 
Chicago Belt Railroad company.

Private James Martin, reported wounded, was listed 
as living at 5646 Magnolia avenue, but no one could 
be found in the neighborhood who knew him.

in the Eightieth United States infantry April 30, 
1917. He was among the first Americans to arrive in 
France with Fershing.

LIEUT. CARL. O. ROSEQUIST, whose death from wounds 
received in action was reported in THE TRIBUNE of 
Thursday, was a student at the first officers' 
training camp at Fort Sheridan, where he received 
his commission. His father, O. S. O. Rosequist, 
lives at 1113 Grant street, Evanston.

CORPORAL WALTER FENSKE, slightly wounded, is an 
infantryman and has been in France since early last 
summer. For five years he worked for the Western 
Electric company here. A sister lives at 821 North 
Central Park avenue.

PRIVATE STANLEY STOLOWSKI, reported wounded, enlisted 
in the United States regular army two years ago. He 
left for France last November. His home is at 2358 
North Seeley avenue.
