Drowns in Lake Wichita.

WICHITA FALLS, Texas. May 27 (AP). -- George Rockhill, 29, a nephew of N. H. Martin, a Wichita Falls attorney, was drowned in storm tossed Lake Wichita Monday night.

The lake, stirred by high wind, overturned a boat in which were young Rockhill and Wright Cox. Rockhill grasped Cox and the later with difficulty escaped the frenzied embrace of the other, but finally managed to get ashore.

Men with grappling hooks sought the body.
