HANOI, North Vietnam (A)-
The frequent complaint a visiting
American in Hanoi hears, and he
hears it from intellectuals and
government persons and peasants
and soldiers, is:
Why does the American gov-
ernment say its bombers only
strike at steel and concrete inj

the air war against North Viet- that approximately 300 home

On the other, side of the world
from America, you hear in the
radio broadcast that the reports
of the bombings by Harrison Salis-
bury, of the New York Times, the
first American reporter who went
into Hanoi, have raised doubts and
even denials by some persons that
the city has actually been bombed.

were dropped by American planes

Perhaps fire bombs could ha
done this damage, or it could ha
been caused by a runaway air-t
ground missile.
The American missiles, if th

their target, become ballistic, a

Or a missile fired at the Ame

stations which ring the city cou
