Hershey, speaking on CBS-radio "Capitol Cloakroom" last night, added: "We're going to have to hunt men because we're running out of men. The plain truth is that I'm going to be shorter in less than a year of men now than I probably was at any time during the war." Hershey said draft calls will be bigger during the fiscal year which began in July than in the preceding 12 months.

Sheriff Arnold Sook said "there were no immediate means of ident- ification. He said the girl appeared to be between 17 and 25 years old.

Charles Birsbach, Route 1, Fond i du Lac, discovered the body on I his way to town. He told officials he saw the bright red coat, stopped his car and saw the body in a field. There were signs of a scuffle on the shoulder of the road, the sheriff said. Found also at the spot were a woman's wrist watch, ear- rings and a hair ornament.

Trees were felled, basements flooded and roofs damaged, but no one was reported injured in the freak, localized storm which, one observer said, took the form of a "twister" at Kellogg At Lake City 3.01 inches of rain- fall were recorded from 4 to p.m. Kellogg had three inches of rain in 90 minutes. Alma, Wis., reported 3.75 inches. Hurricane winds accompanied the season's heaviest rainfall in the area. Lake City Streets flooded At Lake City the small tornado accompanying the rain flooded basements in homes and stores. Storm sewers were inadequate to handle the rapid runoff and streets and sidewalks were flooded. Water flowed into basement windows. Extensive damage to roofs was reported and some damage to household furnishings where whole sections of roofing were torn away by the screaming winds. Highway 61 just west of City was closed when lie highway became impassable. Flooding rains sped across the highway in the area of the Lake City Club, a point where flooding has occurred on other occasions during heavy rainfalls. Only six miles north of Lake City, Frontenac had little rain and no wind. To the south and east the storm's fury was spent on the north edge of Winona Coun- ty. 2 Inches of Rain at St. Charles Rainfall in the Winona area, however, was described as "quite heavy and general" by the local weather observer. Rainfall total- ing .79 of an inch fell on Winona from 2 to S p.m. St. Charles had' an estimated two inches of rain- fall in less _ than two hours, and Winona County Fair-goers were liberally drenched. Near havoc was created, how- ever, only 25 miles to the north and west. Trees were torn out by their roots at the eastern edge of Kel- logg. Gasoline pumps at Prairie Inn at the junction of Highways 61 and 42 near KeDogg were blown over. Windows were blasted from a number of homes by the force of the storm, and roof damage was extensive.
