(Studio) Violence erupts as Juan Peron, exiled Argentine president, returns to Buenos Aires with Peron's government head Hector Campora.
REPORTER: Harry Reasoner

(Buenos Aires, Argentina) Peronists receive free food and transportation to ensure welcome for Peron after 18 years exile. Young revolutionaries, hoping to persuade Campora to the left, attend. Trotskyites also attend. Shooting breaks out without warning. At end, 7 known dead, 50 wounded. No clue to shooting's origin. Peron's plane lands at military base and he goes directly home. Peron's Argentina split by own factions and others vying for control. REPORTER: Charles Murphy
