The body of Mr. Wineland has been found but the bodies of the wom en have not yet been, found according to word received from the Saugus and Newhall morgues. Meanwhile Earl Imus a young man with. a haggard face, is going wearily from morgue to morgue looking at the hands of baby boys among the dead. Four days before the flood his 10- month-old son, Raymond, accidentally. burned his baby hand. If Imus linds a tiny body with scarred fingers lie will know it is his child. - j
