IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN EDITOR'S NOTE — For the I last 20 years correspondent Michael Goldsmith has reported on all kinds of violence in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. These are his impressions after a few days in Vietnam, where he is now on assignment for The Associated Press. Saigon- An Open City By MICHAEL GOLDSMITH Associated Press Writer SAIGON (AP; - South Vietnam's capital is not the bastion of an embattled nation. It is an open city. The enemy is at the gates— and within. Communist guerrillas lie hidden in the bush and rice paddies just beyond the city limits in all. directions. Thou sands are in the city itself, un- TODAY ... he, or she will be one of those very energetic young people with a firm determination, and you would be wise to teach early to listen to what experienced and successful persons have to say, and to persevere once a plan is formulated, instead of getting bored with it soon. A fine critic, reorganizer is this chart. distinguishable among the three million inhabitants. Security precautions are haphazard. To anyone familiar with the bloody urban terrorism that disrupted such cities as Algier and Aden, the lack of security is hard to believe. Only two months after the Viet Cong almost overran the city, American soldiers nonchalantly stroll unarmed through the. streets or ride bunched together on trucks without a single weapon to protect them. Vietnamese gentries relax on chairs behind crumbling sandbag barriers, sipping lemonade or reading paperback novels. Vietnamese guards at an army camp zealously examine the credentials of Western newsmen and consult their superiors by telephone—while truckloads of civilians drive through the gates unchecked. Trucks loaded high with vegetables grown in the countryside roll unmolested into the city, past idle checkpoints theoretically intended 'to stop Viet Cong infiltration. A heavy layer of red dust shows that no one has disturbed the loads since they left distant farms, many in areas where the Viet Cong are active. A ton of arms or a dozen guerrilla fighters could be concealed on a truck. Night after night, allied airmen drop flares and bombs over the outskirts, where they suspect guerrillas may be hiding or "infiltrating." The targets are unidentified. The operation is known as H and I, for harrass and interdict. Its effectiveness seems dubious at best. Any guerrilla can ride into town on a bicycle or a motor scooter. American soldiers photograph each other holding Vietnamese children. American girls in beach clothes stroll through shopping streets like tourists— the wives or girlfriends of U.S. civilians who remain unaffected by the evacuation of government dependents. During ; the ,Tet offensive, when half the city lay virtually at Viet Cong mercy, only a handful of Americans died of the thousands who live and work in Saigon. Communist offi- cials appeared-on the streets as if from nowhere, identified by red armbands. When the attack faded away, the officials went back underground. The government took prominent opposition leaders into "protective custody"—but the Viet Cong infrastructure, barely grazed, is ready for the next dress rehearsal.
