Often yvound.v. ave uncovered and greedy flies are everywhere. There are never enough doctors. In f a c t, many of'the surgeons here are simply young medical students who these days are learning more than they ever could in a classroom. There is a critical shortage of blood for transfusions, .and often the doctors refuse to operate, because there isn't the .blood available to allow a j patient to survive surgery. 'One 'severely wounded soldier was recently told that nothing could be. done for him because of the lack of blood. The sound of his t wails for assistance echoed throughout the hospital long ^ -, j after they had taken him away. k Jl I A trip to the east bank of the (V (Mekong river,-, which is .now largely occupied by the insur- ^__, (gents, gives a visitor a striking jview of Phnom Penh. In the late afternoon light, the capital's stupas and temples rise jinto the sky.

WASHINGTON (API --- Ally. Gen. Edward H. Levi has-.reversed, a Justice Department recommendation to Congress that every American be required to prove legal residence when applying for a job. Levi said Thursday the so-| called "domestic passport" proposal, conceived as a deterrent! to illegal immigration, "would come close to a violation of something akin to a constitutional right." Addressing his first news conference since taking office Feb. 7, Levi overruled, in effect, the position advanced toy his top aide. Deputy Atty. Gen. Laurence Silberman. Three days before Levi was sworn in, Silberman told a House committee that legislar capital. On the side of the lies Pochentong Airport. civilian-flown American planes which land continually. A nervous U.S. airman sits at the top of the control tower. His job is to plot each rocket and artillery shell when it lands on the airstrip. When a siren bjegins to wail, signaling an impending shelling attack, he grabs his radio and shouts into it,, "Warning! Warning! Warning!" In fact, rocket victims never know what hits them —they die instantly. Surprisingly, there is no overwhelming tension. It's as if the residents of Phnom Penh have resigned themselves to Hie rockets. They dive for cover when on'e lands near them but then they get up and continue on their way. Humanitarian organizations, such as the Red Cross, World Vision and the Catholic Relief Service, work around the clock- to relieve the suffering. But it is not enough, and each day; refugees are lurried away from health clinics and soup kitchens simply because there is not enough foot! and medicine to go around.

Silberman suggested this might entail issuing a special card which . all Americans would be required to obtain. /'I do not like the idea of requiring every employe to carry card ... before he gets a job," said Levi. Levi conceded, however, that "we may have to come to that" if the flood of illegal aliens, whose numbers are no\v estimated at more than a million, is not stemmed. "The problems may be so difficult that this is another kind of freedom that we have to infringe. My first reaction is. one of not wanting to go bhat far," he said. Lcyi said also he is unenthusiastic about the 'department's pledge to step up efforts to deport illegal immigrants already j in the country. But he said he! would not interfere with en-{ foreement campaign because j "trial is not u discretionary j matter on my part." ! Levi announced that the de-[ partment has several policy re-; vfews under way, with top pri-s ority assigned to a study of the) FBI's file-fathering practices.' He added that a number of outside consultants, including-ffor- iner deputy Atty. Gen. William j Ruckclshaus,- are advising'him j on tlie FBI matter^ . ! Gun control and guidelines I for granting immunity to wit-^ nesses in 'criminal trials are other issues under review, he said. The attorney general said it was his "overall goal" to make the department "a thoughtful place" that is • free from interference by the White House or other "pressures. The department, he said, "should operate with and radiate ... the highest professional standards. This department is not to be used as a partisan political instrument. "It.isn't to be used that way consciously, and, I think more important, it isn't to be used that way unconsciously." "The relationship with the White House, so far. is good," he said. "But if the relationship becomes too perfect then I will become 'concerned,. The department has to be independent if it is going to lie of any use." Watch For It Soon! It's OnThe WAY!
