Small French naval gunboats from midstream pumped ma chinegun fire into the villages while planes and artillery pound ed them with high explosives Then Viet Namese infantry units, supported by light tanks, smashed their way through the villages one by one. Elsewhere in the delta, small patrol clashes flared during the night and early morning dark ness in a dozen different areas, some less than 10 miles from Hanoi. Bombers Blast Convoys. B-26 bombers, flying below storm clouds, caught Viet Minh supply convoys with bombs on highways the rebels are using to bring up ammunition and rocket launchers'to the edge of the delta for a possible assault against Hanoi. In Saigon French military sources said five United States airmen captured by the Viet Minh last Monday near Tourane had been put aboard a rebel ship headed southward.
