Congress to consider refugee aid

WASHINGTON P)-President
Ford's emergency aid request
for Indochina refugees was
cleared for House action next
week by one committee yester-
day night and cut to $405 mil-
lion by another congressional
panel.
The House foreign operations
appropriations subcommittee cot
the Presidents $57 million aid
request for 150,000 refugees
down to $405 million, generally
basing its action on figures
showing the actual number of
refugees involved now totals
about 114,00.
LATER, THE House Judiciary
Committee approved an author-
ization for emergency refugee
program, 30 to 4, and Chairman
Peter W. Rodino (-N.J.) said
he hopes to put it to a House
vote next Wednesday.
The authorization bill contains
no money figures. The separate
$405 million appropriation is ex-
pected to follow the authoriza-
tion bill to a House vote quickly.
Meanwhile, the Senate passed
91 to 1 a resolution welcoming
Vietnamese and Cambodian ref-
ugees to the United States. Sen.
William Scott (R-Va.) cast the
only dissenting vote against the
resolution, introduced by Sens.
Alan Cranston (D-Calif) and
James Allen (D-Ala.).
AN AMENDMENT by Rep.

Elizabeth Holtzman (D-N.Y.) to
write a $507 million limit into
the House authorization bill was
rejected 18 to 16.
She said she wanted to make
sure that if more than the Pres-
is needed, the extar funds would
ident's estimate of $507 million
require approval by Congress.
"I think we've learned that
controlling the purse strings
brings responsive administra-
tion, she said.
REP. JACK Brooks (D-Tex.)
said during the Judiciary Com-
mittee debate that he was con-
cerned about the job burden the
refugees may cause, coming to
this country at a time of nearly

9 per cent unemployment.
"I think our first responsibil-
ity is to give jobs to people in
this country who want to work
and w h o a r e Americans,'
Brooks said.
But Rep. Paul Sarbanes (D-
Md.) said Congress already has
made jobs for Americans a leg
islative priority and added that
the Indochina refugees should
not be seen as interfering with
that effort.
MEMBERS of the foreign op-
erations subcommittee, in set-
ting the $405 million figure, said
they probably will have to make
another appropriation when the
administration knows exactly

PHNOM PENH WAS describ-
ed by many of the returnees as
a "dead city," littered with
bodies and abandoned house-
hold goods and populated by a
few pets and a few Khmer
Rouge soldiers.
One Frenchman said that last
Thursday the Khmer Rouge had
come to his house and ordered
him to leave or be shot. He re-
called:
"On the way to the embassy
I saw several dead bodies rot-
ting in the street. Some of
them apparently had been shot,
but some had their heads
crushed and appeared to have
been beaten to death."
A SWEDISH journalist, Olle
Tolgraven of Swedish Broad-
casting, said he did not believe
there had been wholesale execu-
tions. But he said there was

evidence the Khmer Rouge had
shot people who refused to leave
their homes in a mass evacua-
tion ordered the first day of the
takeover. This was corroborated
by others.
Douglas Saypper, one of the
evacuated Americans, said that
when the Khmer Rouge first
marched into Phnom Penh they
were met with cheering and
white flags. "It built up into a
crescendo, with people dashing
around and embracing the
Khmer Rouge soldiers in a car-
nival atmosphere.''
But soon the Khmer Rouge
began systematically emptying
out houses and stores of every-
thing inside and "it became ob-
vious that there was a forced
exodus out of the city," Sapper
said.
"YOU'D LOOK down the
street and there'd be some pa-
per swirling, a lone dog trot-
ting across, a shutter blowing
in the breeze - nothing stirring.
It is likely that the depopula-
tion of the country's metropoli-
tan areas, and even villages,
were the first dramatic steps
toward the new Cambodia. The
foreign returnees speculate the
mass exoduses were measures
to control populations, to get the
many fallow rice fields planted
again, as well as to uproot
"bourgeois" urban dwellers.

how many refugees there are
and precisely how much pro-
grams for them will cost.
"Let's give them something
and then monitor the programs
and see what the needs are,"
said Rep. George Mahon (ID-
Tex.), chairman of the fuR
House Appropriations Commit-
tee.
The subcommittee appreved
$155 million for refugee centers
and daily maintenance of refu-
gees, $65 million for airllf
them, $70 million for resettle-
ment, $100 million for subse-
quent welfare and medical' care
and $15 million for airlifts to
other countries.
THE $507 million Ford re-
quested included $185 million
for daily maintenance. $9 mil-
lion for airlifts, $78 million for
resettlement, $125 million for
welfare and medical care and
$20 million for airlifts to other
countries.
Meantime, the Senate quickly
passed by voice vote a bill to
let President Ford use previous-
ly appropriated military aid
funds to assist Vietnamese and
Cambodian refugees.
Sen. Mark Hatfield (R-Ore.)
said the measure could make as
much as $147 million available
while Congress debates Fords
major aid request.
THE BILL was passed and
sent to the House 24 minutes
after Hatfield introduced it. No
immediate House action appear
ed likely, however.
The administration has said
it will run out of funds this
weekend to care for the refu-
gees unless Congress votes ad
ditional money by then.
