A young couple holding hands on a stroll or a housewife clutching a bunch of vegetables is again a common sight on Damascus Street, a no-man's land just a few weeks ago of explosions and sniper fire. The barricades and guns are gone. Fallen trees and rubble have been bulldozed aside, but the ugly piles still bear witness to the ferocity of the battles that were fought on the mile-long street where the Moslem and Christian sectors of the city merged. Lebanese police again are directing traffic that travels freely again between the two sectors. But troops of the Arab peace force search cars and passengers for hidden arms. Pushcarts full of fruits and vegetables line the curbsides where bodies of war victims once lay for days before they could be recovered. "I have heard that Moslem and Christian Lebanese who sat out the war in hotels outside the country dined and danced together during the war," said a Moslem taxi driver on Damascus Street. "We Lebanese hate each other when we are here, but start liking each other when we go abroad. May God curse those who caused the war." A spirit of sectarian coexistence appears to be returning under a 3-weok-old ceasefire imposed by a 30,-UOU-member Arab peace force composed mosly of Syrians. Court hearings have resumed, with six persons already sentenced to a jail hastily set up in the cellar of the .Justice Ministry. Their food is sent in from restaurants. Among the six was one of the estimated 2,500 convicts who fled when combatants on both sides in the war opened or destroyed prison gates. .Judicial authorities say they have a list of the convicts who are being sought bv Arab peace troops, Beirut's international airport, closed for most of the war. has become a place of tearful and joyous reunions as Lebanese who fled the lighting return each dav by the jet load. Activity at the airport is picking up with-international airlines resuming normal flights to and from Beirut. Passengers pass through customs and security with a minimum of red tape. The dockyards at the burned seaport, once the busiest in the Middle Mast, have been cleared of debris and the port's Board of Directors have announced plans to reopen it tins month. Customs offices have been reinstated at border crossings, busy with an estimated hall-million returning Lebanese who had fled overland to Syria Customs officials announced they collected the Lebanese pound equivalent of $1. million in duties in I he first week the border points reopened. The casino outside Beirut where Arab oil sheiks used to come to gamble has reopened after a yearlong shutdown. And Beirut newspapers are carrying boutiques advertisements for "the latest 1976-77 autumn-winter fashion collections fresh from Paris." Sidewalk stalls have gone up on llamra Street with merchandise ranging from antique coins to plastic shoes, while work goes on to rebuild the burned shops along Beirut's main shopping area. Peddlers are back in circulation in the newly reopened sidewalk cafes offering imported goods. A corrugated tin-roof market has sprung up next to the modern, high-rise apartment buildings along the seaside promenade in West Beirut, pending reconstruction of the war-wrecked multown commercial center. Adnan Kassar, chairman of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said the damage to the commercial center has been estimated at $f billion and reconstruction will take three to five years. 7 Wounded In Breakout By 5 Inmates GREENVILLE, SC.

All the injured persons were either guards or persons working at the pi i son. Officials said the inmates are believed to have escaped in a car belonging to one of the guards.
