Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 38 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Wednesday, February 14, 1973 Bombing scars are common Philadelphia Inquirer reporter Louise Hickman Li-one recently visited North Vietnam. In the following copyright dispatch she reports on the destruction she saw while visiting Hanoi in the week immediately following the ceasefire. By LOUISE LIONE The Philadelphia Inquirer HANOI (AP) - If a visitor to Hanoi could drop straight into the middle of Trang Tien Street, he might never know what hit the city. � On Trang Tien - Hanoi's "Piccadilly," our interpreter, A'guyhe Ba Ngoc, called it-there are shops, a liquor store, a French restaurant and a huge tiieatre where the current attraction is Con Toi Ca by Acto Milo. Translated that's All My Children by Arthur Miller. Turning the busy comer, there is the first view of tranquil Lake of the Restored Sword. "Manhole" and walk-in bomb shelters all around its shores are the only clues to the "terrible last days of December" and the bombings that went before. But you can't just drop into Hanoi that way. You land at Gia Lam Airport, its buildings wrecked. And you drive into the city past cratered fields and an utterly devastated industrial area that once was a huge repair depot for locomotives with' houses and apartment buildings surrounding it. Though you cringe at knowing children died in its destruction, you accept the lo- comotive depot as a strategic target. And the airport. But not Bach Mai Hospital. Not Khan Thien Street. "The Pentagon said it only dropped bombs on the out-skirts," the director of Hanoi's War Crimes Museum had told us one morning before our visits to central Khan Thien and Bach Mai. 'IT WAS DELIBERATE' "This was not accidental," he said. "It was deliberate. The Pentagon' has often boasted of its precision, laser-guided bombs." Bach-Mai is a group of low buildings spread over 39.5 acres. Every building is wrecked. Before we toured the compound, Dr. Do Luong Lai, director of the hospital, said it would be impossible to recon- You'd better hurry. Feb. 28th is the, last day.

Bach Mai - which means "White Apricot Blossoms" - was more than a 940-bed facility and the biggest medical centre in North Vietnam. It was also a medical school with a teaching staff of 300 and 800 medical students. On the night of Dec. 22, In three B-52 attacks. Dr. Do Luong La said, Bach Mai was hit by 100 bombs. Twenty-eight persons died in its ruins. DEATH TOLL 35 Altogether, since April, 1972, the hospital had been hit 34 times, we were told. The total death toll was 5. On Dec. 22, onlv 90 persons - patients, staff and students-remained in the buildings. Had it not been for evacuation, about 3,000 would have been there. A movement to rebuild Bach Mti as the Vietnam-U.S. People's Friendship Hospital is under way. These are the details of Khan Thien Street that we had been provided with earlier in the day: The area bombed was 1.2 kilometres long by 600 metres wide. At 10:23 p.m. 33 B-52 sorties dropped 3,000 bombs over the street, some of the bombs weighing 2,000 pounds. The dead numbered 215, the seriously wounded 257. Some 435 houses were reduced to ruins. Twelve-hundred others were wrecked. BICYCLE DEATHS INCREASE EDMONTON (CP) - Bicycle deaths are starting to appear in serious numbers, the Alberta Safety Council noted today in reporting 14 deaths and 233 injuries among bicycle riders in the province last year. The council reported fatalities in all traffic accidents in Alberta in 1972 rose by 4.5 per cent to 455 - an all-time high - personal injuries by seven per cent to 12,656 and the number of mishaps by 19 per cent to 54,800 over the previous year. Antigua sugar industry The sugar industry in Antigua is in trouble and the government doesn't have the money to revive it. Sugar has long been the economic mainstay of the island, discovered, by Columbus in 1493. But the industry has been declining in recent years and the 5,000 acres of ripening sugar now growing under the warm winter sun is being trampled by free-roaming livestock. Workers are shown in sugar field in the Carribean. SPECIAL PURCHASE!!! COMPLETE STOCK OF HARLEN DEPT. STORE of Montreal ~ Bought at 30c on the dollar. Yoji sire ihe difference at National Dept.
