Oakley Leo Clouser WINDFALL -- Oakley Leo Clouser, 77, Windfall R.R. 1, died at noon Friday in the Tipton County Memorial Hospital following a several-month illness.

He also proposed increasing the size of the regular armed forces by 375,000 men through increased recruitment and draft calls and extensions of tours of duty. The total increase in the military forces would then be 600,000 men by the middle of 1966. We would also have to ask Congress for an additional supplemental supplemental appropriation.

This would require a great deal of money and a huge sacrifice sacrifice for the American people. I summoned summoned my top advisers to the White House on July 21, the day after Me- Namara returned. We went into the proposal line by line, argument by argument. We considered considered many alternatives. St. Joseph Hospital DISMISSALS Asley, Mrs. Mary M., Frankfort. Bersbach, William E., 201 E.
