Scientists link bacteria
to Legionnaires disease
By APand Reuter
PEORIA, Ill - Researchers
have found a tentative link be-
tween a specific bacteria and
the mysterious Legionnaires
disease that killed 29 persons
in Philadelphia last summer, a
government spokesperson said
However, scientists and the
national Center for Disease
Control (CDC) in Atlanta say
more study is needed before a
definite link can be confirmed.
IN A STATEMENT released
through a U. S. Department of
Agriculture research cented in
Peoria, Dr. Leslie Page cau-
tioned that the tests made on
blood serum of persons who
had the disease are prelimin-
arry. But he said the sugges-
tion is strong enought to sched-
ule more extensive work.

National Animal Disease La-
boratory in Ames, Iowa, and!
director of the research, iden-
