REPORTER: John Chancellor

(Harrisburg, Pennsylvania) Martin Baker is one of Legionnaires not stricken by disease, but he checks papers every morning for news of friends. [BAKER - notes people he knew who have been taken ill or died.] Baker says neighbors and some fellow Legionnaires avoid him. Other Legionnaires report similar experiences. [Ray BLOSS - says when people find out he was at convention they ask him to stay away.] [Dominic Di FRANCESCO - says he can't imagine that it is flu because of effect on only Legionnaires.] [Ray WEAVER - relates experience at bank.] Legionnaires fear more deaths before disease identified and scare over.
