Of- ficials are- still counting tha dead and wounded from last December's United States air raids and assessing the dam- age. By Horst Pass of Ihe Associated Press Premier Phani Van Dong and other government leaders ex- hort the North Vietnamese (P remain vigilant and ready for all eventualities. But the people of Hanoi appear relaxed, ready (o enjoy life a bit more and ea- ger to rebuild and improvt their war-battered capital, Hanoi's mayor, Tran Duy Hung, is a bespectacled doctor who has run the city since 1954. He is described as "a good friend of the late Uncle Ho Chi Minh." "Our facilities are not as eood as in your he said in greeting some Western reporters, "not even as good as in Saigon. "Except for five relatively calm years after we took over from the French colonialists we always had to be vigilant and prepared for war and attack." At first glimpse from the air, central Hanoi still looks like the graceful French colonial city of it was .before all the fighting began 30 years ago. But age shows A close look, however, shows the cracks and wrinkles of age, facades that have not been painted for decades, dilapi- dated, overcrowded mansions once inhabited by French colo- nial officials. Massive trees that still Una every boulevard hide much of the damage that decades of neglect, austerity and war have done to the "Flying as the name Hanoi can be translated. Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam since it was first united in 1010, always has been considered a more cultured, more beautiful city than Saigon, which was pri- marily a port, administration and business centre. Wliile Hanoi obviously has Buffered from the priorities of a war economy, massive destruc- tion by the U.S. air war is lim- ited to a few no- tably where bombs hit residen- tial areas. Hanoi's mayor said that in the whole municipality of 000 square kilometres, In Bis December raids alone homes were destroyed. Bombs hit 72 of Hanoi's 102 districts and.all four districts of the dty centre were hit, he added. While it is difficult to confirm these statistics, occasional stray bomb hits are visible all over the city. Poor areas hit Massive destruction can be seen in a densely populated poor district along Kham Thien Street, hit in December by heavy bombs dropped by B-52s. The target may have tha Hanoi railway station, about 500 yards away. It remained intact. The scenes along Kham Thien Street recall destroyed cities in Germany after the Second World War. Temporary bamboo and patch-roofed shelters have been built by survivors on the rubble of their flattened houses. To get to their homes people have to use trails that circle craters made by bombs. These craters are filled with stinking refuse and foul water. One family lives in the still- standing half of its two-storey house, as if on a stage, In the evening a curtain is pulled to replace the missing wall. A woman, holding her baby, gropes through a pile of rubbla sorting out bricks that can be salvaged for the future recon- struction of Kham Thien dis- trict. A hundred yards away women and children dig out remnants of a wall, also trying to save unbroken bricks. The people of Kham Thien have to work with their hands. Not one construction machine was visibile, and all the bricks prepared for reconstruction were those clawed from the ruins. Thousands killed It is unclear how many people were killed in fhis worst raid on any residential area in Hanoi. The mayor speaks of several hundred. But Western sources who were in Hanoi during the raid and witnessed rescue work believe several thousand were killed. They believe the North Viet- namese government seeks to protect its reputation of having been generally successful in holding down civilian casualties by evacuating all but the most needed and by building as many air raid shelters as pos- sible. Hanoi's mayor said that o! people in the city's four central districts, were evacuated during the December raids. In the ruins of Kham Thien district, heavy casualties are evident everywhere. In home a one-room shelter In a nwlti-storey house that col- lapsed except for the ground floor six tablets on the ances- tor altar bear the date of a B-53 raid. The widow who Hved broke into tears when ques- tioned about the loss of her hus- band, four children and a rela- tive. Kham Thien is one area in Hanoi where children do not joke with Western visitors or pose grinning for photographs. According to residents, many are orphans living with rela- tives. The other showpiece of de- struction of non-military targets is the Each Mai Hospital, re- ported as twice hit by B-52 raids. Bach Hanoi's largest hospital, is destroyed from ana end to the other. Rails not hit It may be assumed that adjacent railway refuelling and parking area was the real tar- get. Rails lead past the hospi- tal, but they were not put out of action. Reconstruction has not yet be- gun in earnest. Workers, mostly women, cart and stack salvaged bricks. Walls and roofs that can be repaired are slowly fixed. The hospital has no patients now, but medical classes con- tuiue. A maternity and parent- hood advice class was held in open air, the professor speaking from UM steps of smashed building. When American prisoners ot war ride In buses from Hanoi prisons to Gia Lam Airport they can see the result of what the U.S. Air Force called a 100-per- cent successful raid on Hanoi railway yard and repair facility. It was utterly destroyed. Rail- way cars were thrown about in the blast of heavy bombs. Al- most no building can bo recog- nized for what it once was. Residential areas around tha yard are being repaired or re- palced by temporary homes, some being contructed even at night in the light of n few dim bare bulbs. Bombs that splashed into neighboring paddies are almost forgotten. Fanners filled in tin holes and rice is already green- Ing. Hanoi was not among ths cities bombed heavily by American Navy and Air Force. Other towns were reported com- pletely destroyed.
