THERE'S A "TRUTH SQUAD" nipping at Dr. Robert C. Gallo's heels. At the moment, its four members are pressing furiously to stir up a hornet's nest in the state legislature about the famed scientist's Center for Human Virology, set to open in January. But these critics are confusing scientific etiquette with economic development. Their dispute with Dr. Gallo has little to do with the world-class institute he plans to run, with state and city financial support, in Baltimore.Dr. Gallo, generally regarded as the co-discoverer of the AIDS virus, says these critics are on a "witch hunt."

SEN. BOB DOLE attacked Hollywood's values and products last April while campaigning for president in Iowa.A reporter's search of computerized archives of newspapers found no previous such foray in Dole's long career.
