Reception Camp Is Quarantined

Tidworth, England, March 21 (AP)

– Part of the GI bride reception camp here was placed under quarantine today following the discovery of two cases of scarlet fever. Camp officers said the outbreak was “definitely not serious” but that “15 or 20” brides and babies who might have been exposed would be quarantined for 10 days.

Their places on the Bridgeport, not scheduled to sail Saturday with a passenger list of 477 will be taken by later arrivals to the camp.
