Hanoi Fails To Remove U.S. Mines WASHINGTON (AP) The North Vietnamese have made some primitive efforts to clear U.S. mines from their rivers but have failed, Pentagon sources report. Lacking sophisticated minc- removal gear, the North Vietnamese were said to have been floating metal drums down their streams in an effort to detonate magnetic mines sown by U.S. warplanes. Navy jets dropped two types of mines starting in early May. Smaller magnetic devices went into rivers and big acoustic mines into seaport entrances. Sources said Navy planes have since laid additional mines to supplement more than 600 which wer dropped originally at Haiphong ami othtr harbor mouths. Pentagon officials denied that any of the first batch had drifted or hud been removed by the North Vietnamese from seaport entrances. Thus, the seeding of more mines in harbor entrances suggests that some of the original devices have become inactive. U.S. officials in Saigon have said the North Vietnamese are relying increasingly on barges and sampans to move supplies along North rivers and other inland waterways because heavy U.S. bombing has cut the rail and road lines in many places. Mines dropped into North Vietnamese streams are serious hazards to such movement, U.S. officials said.
