(Studio) 77 year old Juan Peron returns to Argentina after 17 years exile; he is hero to many in country.
REPORTER: John Chancellor

(Buenos Aires, Argentina) Peronists show up en masse at the airport to greet Peron despite heavy rain and massive military security. Many turned back from airport by police or not allowed to come near it. Might have been 1 million people to greet Peron otherwise. Nobody sure what Peron will do in Argentina.
REPORTER: Steve Delaney
