AMERICAN REPORTER:
Bombing Brings Fear, Destruction to Vietnamese

STUCK W ITH AN

EDITOR'S NOTE: The following
story was written Jan. 15 by Bill
Baggs, editor of the Miami (Fla)
News. Baggs spent eight days early
this month in North Viet Nam.

NAM DINH, North Vietnam (P)
viMost of the travelers move during
the night in North Vietnam. They
wish to avoid the attention of the
American bombers, and thus the
south of Hanoi, is a nocturnal
'traffic jam.
The designation of this road is
Highway No. 1, and it is, at its
broadest, barely two lanes, and
4t degenerates into what is merely
a one-lane road. Often you simply
stop in the auto, stalled behind an
'ex-drawn wagon. On other oc-

casions, you find yourself in the
.middle of an army convoy headed
.south.
The American bombers have
visited this road many times. De-
tours are frequent hosts. You
come upon a bridge which has
been bombed out, the car heaves
over the detour of a dirt road,
steep and narrow, and you see
that as a symbol of the ingenuity
of these people,
Thetemporary bridge, down
river, is made of wooden planks
and bamboo. It was built over-
night. It is not very handsome,
but it gets you across the river.
Nam Dinh is the third largest
City in North Vietnam. The pop-
ulation was more than 90,000 be-

fore the bombing started. Now it
is pretty much an evacuated city.
At least half of the large wooden
doors to the homes, huddled close
together on narrow streets, are
closed and padlocked.
We reached Nam Dinh shortly
after 7 a.m. No other cars were
seen on the streets. A common
sight is the bicycle, wheeled along
the streets of Nam Dinh. Common
also are the wagons, piled with
fertilizer for the rice fields, and
quite a few walkers and all of
them carrying cargo of some na-
ture.
In Hanoi, you hear that down
south, in Nam Dinh, the American
bombers come with a steady fre-
quency, and that is the reason we
traveled here, And what you hear
in Hanoi appears to be true.
Indeed, the air alert sounded
at 8:03 in the morning, and Amer-
ican visitors looked down into one
of the concrete holes in thez
ground which serves as a shelter.
At least a foot and a half of
water, dirty and cold water, stood
in the bottom of the hole, and you
decide to take your chances lying
flat on the ground instead of low-
ering yourself into the wet shelter,
This, and another alert later in

in New York indicated that the
movie has only encountered legal
difficulties once-at the Univer-
sity of New Mexico several years
ago. However, there is currently
a gentlemen's agreement in New

York state that the film will not
be shown there.
The film was shown at Brown
University last Saturday. "It was
interesting, and not so filthy at
all," said one student. "I don't
care for experimental films that
much and was a little bored."
