Billionaire Still Plans To Aid POWs DENVER (AP) - A Dallas, Tex., billionaire who failed twice in attempts for assurances from the North Vietnamese that American prisoners of war are not being mistreated, Thursday said he Is planning "further action." H. Ross Perot, 39, told a press conference here that "the average American citizen can guar-i antee the release of these men." He said: "We know what the North Vietnamese react to, and we must keep the American people aroused." Last Christmas Perot tried to fly gifts and medical supplies to the estimated 1,500 Americans believed captive, but was prevented In his attempt by the Hanoi government. Last April he chartered a jetliner and flew 70 U.S. reporters and five POW wives to Saigon and Vientiane, Laos, to inspect POW camps holding Viet Cong and North Vietnamese captives. But his effort to report their names and condition at North Vietnam's embassy in Vientiane was rebuffed, .and he was denied permission to fly to] Hanoi. Perot then rerouted the delegation to aris, but there, too,, he was snubbed by the North j Vietnamese delegation to the! peace talks. ! Perot said Thursday that both' trips yielded a "flood of names- and letters from POWs." But he declined to disclose delails of his third campaign. Perot was in Denver to present annual Young American Awards at the 60th annual meeting of the Boy Scouts of America. LOV1NGTON, N. M.
